Property description

Built around 1840, the cottage is on a dead end country road, so no traffic. Totally renovated in 2010 as a country retreat for its owner, it boasts modern central heating, new bathrooms, handmade curtains and a new kitchen equipped to the highest standard. THE RATING HAS NOW BEEN RAISED TO 4* GOLD by the Tourist Board. However traditional character has been preserved with deep windows, beams, a traditional wood fire, and Rayburn (Aga) cooker, and a selection of antique pictures. We even provide complimentary logs for the fire! It is a five minute walk to a traditional English pub with excellent food. Rolling Cotswold countryside can be seen passed the traditional village roof lines at the back. There is a large cottage garden with patio, barb-b que, and outdoor dining. Fluffy towels and toiletaries provide that extra pampered feel. There is an extensive selection of books, and even some children's books and toys for the perfect country retreat.

The English Tourist Board has certified this property as family-ready and suitable for cyclists. Cot, high chair, toys, plastic cutlery and crockery all available.

Situated in a glorious Cotswold village, complete with pub, village green, and 900 year-old church and spectacular views across the Cotswolds. 90% of the buildings are hundreds of years old, built in traditional local style. Right in the middle of the Cotswolds, but away from the tourist trail. The village is a starting point for many beautiful walks across the countryside,The famous towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the Water and Burford are just a few minutes' drive away. It' a perfect spot to base touring across the Cotswolds and for Oxford (40 minutes' drive away), Stratford-Upon Avon (40 minutes) and Cheltenham (40 minutes). But then back to a peaceful, beautiful traditional village cottage, complete with large character garden.
