Set within the Tortworth Estate, this cottage is perfect for enthusiastic walkers and cyclists who can take advantage of a wealth of well-marked paths, a great farm shop bursting with local produce and a cafe where you can relax and chat about your adventures. The area offers a variety of local attractions to include Cromhall Quarry (0.3 miles) where you can book a wild swimming session, Berkeley Castle (6 miles), Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (12 miles), Painswick Rococo Garden (22 miles) and the Gloucester and Sharpness Canal (16 miles). The popular town of Cheltenham (28 miles), home of racing’s Gold Cup and the famous Literature Festival, is well worth visiting.

Benefitting from a remote location with gardens overlooking the surrounding countryside, this cottage is environmentally friendly using electricity from the solar panels and heating from the heat source pump. So, step inside the entrance hall where you can take a seat to remove your muddy boots, and use the WC in the utility room, which also houses a washer/dryer and a microwave. From here you can access the spacious kitchen/diner, the kitchen being well equipped with an electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, and dishwasher, and the dining area comprising a table and chairs for four. The lounge is accessed from the kitchen, a generously sized space where you can relax with friends, with a wood-burning stove for chilly evenings, and a smart TV if you chose to watch a good film. Part of the open-plan lounge is an extended, vaulted sunroom which is a serene space for catching up with a good book. When the day is done climb the stairs where you will find two beautifully finished rooms. A king-size with en-suite shower and WC and another king-size with a freestanding bath, shower and WC.

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?
