Plum Tree cottage is a charming property which is very well appointed. It has a sweet little garden which was full of beautiful blossom and has 2 seating areas and has various garden chairs and cushions etc. The cottage is very tastefully furnished with quality equipment and bedding etc and the kitchen is full of everything you may need! (Even a picnic hamper) It is well located and a 5 minute walk to the Thames and shops. It is very peaceful. Our hosts spoilt us with Prosecco, chocolates, crisps and home made jam which was very welcoming! We will return to this little haven of loveliness! Thank you for a great weekend.
Lovely little cottage with absolutely everything you need. The stairs to the upstairs bedroom were narrow. Not really suitable for elderly people. The facilities were excellent though including washer and dryer. Very pleasant stay.
Lechlade and the surrounding area has so much to offer visitors.
It is ideally located in the South of the Cotswolds. For the more active amongst us, there are plenty of walking trails of varying difficultly, as well as cycle routes.
Lechlade is on the bank of the Thames which provides plenty of other activities such as Boat hire which can be arranged from The Trout Inn which is only about a mile on the Faringdon Road. A little way down the river towards Buscot, you will find St Johns Lock which is the first lock on the Thames. Stay here a while and watch the boats navigate through the lock.
Lechlade is served by plenty of Pubs and Restaurants such as the Riverside which is located just beyond the famous Halfpenny Bridge. The local Fish & Chip shop is again just a couple of minutes walk from the cottage.
If you're after a more leisurely holiday, there are grand open homes to visit such as Kelmscott Manor and Buscot House or you may choose to visit the Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust for a spot of birdwatching or catching a glimpse of other wildlife.
For big and small children alike, The Cotswold Wildlife Park is just 6 miles along the road to Burford. This is a fantastic dayout for all the family and is a must see whilst you are in the area.
If fishing is your thing, the Lechlade Trout Fishery provides rod hire & river fishing. They are located on the edge of town on the Burford Road.
There is also a broad mix of shops in the town from the renowned Christmas Shop through to Antiques. Plumtree Cottage is just a couple of minutes walk from the local Londis where you will find all of the essentials that you will need during your stay.
Other major centres which are within easy reach of Lechlade by car are Burford - 11 minutes, Cirencester (The Capital of the Cotswolds) - 25 minutes, Swindon - 30 minutes and Oxford - 40 minutes.
