We had a fantastic break at The Well House despite the bad flooding that affected the area. Laura kindly let us know about the road closures whilst we were driving down and gave us an alternative route. The cottage was beautiful and very spacious, the pictures on the website don't do it justice! The lemon cake on left for our arrival was delicious.Read more We would highly recommend this cottage and would definitely return. Hide

The house was lovely and comfortable, I dont think the pictures did it justice. Kitchen was amazingly equipped, we had everything we needed. Location is good with plenty of footpaths around to walk the dogs.

What a wonderful accommodation. The Well House had everything we needed for a fun family Xmas. It was extremely comfortable, spacious and well equipped.

Spacious, comfortable and warm (despite the cold weather outside). Access is down a narrow lane with plenty of tractor and horse box traffic. Excellent facilities in the property.

Stunning cottage in a lovely location. Plenty of room for all of us. Everything you need was there. Kitchen stocked with pans etc like being at home. Shame we didn't cook. Early arrival and late departure especially appreciated. Definitely will return.

A great cottage - v homely and cost. The bunk beds sleep adults but I think would better suit children :)

The Cotswolds is home to some of the most unspoilt, historic and famous villages in England. Its honey-coloured stone buildings provide a quintessential English charm found no-where else in the world and offer a plethora of welcoming pubs, tiny tearooms and quaint streets to explore.

Once described by William Morris as ‘the most beautiful village in England’, the chocolate box village of Bibury is one of England’s most iconic hamlets, home to the peaceful River Coln and some of the most photographed houses in the country. The famous Arlington Row is a sight to behold - this row of 14th century weaver’s cottages have been the foundation of Bibury for hundreds of years and is instantly recognisable as a symbol of the Cotswold District.

If you’re seeking a relaxing day of sightseeing, shopping and traditional tearooms, head to the charming town of Cirencester, once the second largest town in Roman Britain. Proclaiming the title "The Capital of the Cotswolds", its market square is dominated by the cathedral-like Parish Church of St. John Baptist (one of the largest in England) and can be easily reached from our self-catering accommodation in Bibury, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold.

The rolling Cotswolds countryside is never too far away from your cosy holiday cottage, so you can enjoy a variety of outdoor leisure pursuits including those at The Cotswold Waterpark. This popular tourist destination in Gloucestershire is home to 150 glorious lakes where angling, archery, wakeboarding, windsurfing, birdwatching and even rally driving can be experienced. On a balmy summers day, the Cotswold Country Park and Beach is the place to go, boasting the largest inland beach in the UK.

When it comes to attractions in the Cotswolds, visitors will be spoilt for choice. Grab a stylish bargain at Bicester shopping village, talk a walk on the wild side at Longleat Safari Park, experience a day at the races in Cheltenham, admire colourful blooms at Westonbirt Arboretum, keep the kids entertained at the Cotswolds Farm Park, take a tour around Gloucester Cathedral, and enjoy an indulgent afternoon tea at Blenheim Palace. That’s just for starters, there’s plenty more things to see and do in the Cotswolds and you will love them all! Our holiday homes in the Cotswolds are the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploration, why not have a browse?
