  • A very cozy, clean place just off the main road. The accommodations were well equipped with any items we needed, extremely clean, and comfortable. It was easy to get our key from the little lockbox and the instructions were crystal clear. We made great use of the local suggestions while we visited. We were able to walk to enjoy a few local pubs, a beautiful church, local coffee shops, and an amazing little local market for food and snacks. Northleach was the quaint, quiet country town that we were looking for and it was very convenient to local attractions such as Sudeley Castle. I hope we are able to stay here again the next time we visit England and the countryside.

  • The Bolt Hole is a lovely cottage located in a beautiful part of the country. It had everything we needed with plenty of great pubs and restaurants close by. Communication was quick and there were no issues whatsoever. I would highly recommend staying here.

  • Joyce replied quickly to messages and was accommodating when we had to change the date. We got into the place easily with clear instructions, and we found the place clean, cosy and welcoming. Joyce had even thoughtfully left a bottle of milk and tea and coffee so we were able to have a cup of tea on arrival - the most important thing for a true Brit!!! Thank you for a lovely stay in a beautiful place :)

    Welcome to Fairholme, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Fairholme is a wonderful Grade II listed property which sleeps four guests, in two elegant bedrooms, with a spacious family bathroom. Dating back to the 17th century, this Cotswold stone property has retained lovely character features including exposed beams, an exposed Cotswold stone chimney breast and a large fireplace in the living room with a roaring real fire. These period features have been complemented by stylish furnishings and modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a pretty garden to the rear of the property and free on-street parking is available close by. Fairholme is located in the picturesque town of Northleach, an unspoilt town which boasts a number of independent shops, restaurants and pubs, including The Wheatsheaf Inn which is just a stone’s throw from the property itself. The town prospered during the Cotswold wool trade and this funded the impressive 15th century church of St Peter and St Paul. Every Wednesday, locals and tourists alike come to the town for the open-air market which showcases local produce, and the annual Northleach Charter Fair and Music Festival in June is a wonderful event for all ages. On the outskirts of the town sits Stowell Park, a private estate whose stunning gardens are open to the public during the months of May and June each year, offering fine views over the Coln Valley and displaying gorgeous flowers. Northleach is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many cycle routes and walking trails on its doorstep to explore. It is also well placed for visiting the other lovely towns and villages of the Cotswolds, including Cirencester, Burford, Bourton-on-the-Water and Chedworth, home to the Roman Villa which is owned by the National Trust. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath are also within easy reach for day trips.

    Fairholme is the perfect base for a family or a group of friends who are seeking a relaxing getaway surrounded by the glorious Cotswold countryside. From the road, the cottage is accessed via a communal passageway hidden behind a white door marked ‘Fairholme’. Fairholme’s actual front door opens into a hallway, off which are the following rooms: Living/dining room: A step leads down from the hallway into this light and stylish room where charming character features are complemented by contemporary furnishings. This room contains a large Cotswold stone fireplace with real fire, a two-seater sofa and two armchairs, Freeview TV, glass dining table which comfortably seats four, two window seats and a small selection of books and games; Kitchen: The modern kitchen is ideal for home cooking and contains an electric oven with four-ring induction hob, fridge/freezer, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and cafetière. Stairs lead up from the hallway to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: With a high ceiling and elegant furnishings, this beautiful room contains a double bed, built-in wardrobe and small chest of drawers, a comfy chair and a wall mirror; Bedroom 2: Overlooking the street below, this well presented room has an exposed Cotswold stone chimney breast and contains a 4ft double bed, a small chest of drawers and hanging shelf for storage and an ornamental fireplace; Family bathroom: Contains a bath with overhead shower, toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail. The communal passageway leads out onto a garden path which gently climbs up alongside the neighbour’s garden before arriving at a wooden gate signposted ‘Fairholme’. The enclosed garden is mostly laid to lawn with a rockery at the far end and mature trees and shrubs at its borders. This tranquil area houses an outdoor table with seating for four, a parasol and a charcoal barbecue, making it a delightful space to relax in the warmer weather. There is a secure garden shed which has space to store up to two bicycles. Free on-street parking is available at the front of the property.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

  • Great place set away from traffic. But still pretty close to the main road. Looks quaint outside, but very well done inside with all the amenities you could want.

    Hamza2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is steeped in character, lovingly furnished, and super cosy. It had two well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, and as two couples travelling we had plenty of room. We enjoyed walks directly from the property and would definitely recommend it for a quintessential stay in the Cotswolds.

    Emma2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in this gem of a cottage before so I knew our stay would be a very comfortable one. The cottage is deceptively spacious and very welcoming. It would be my ‘go to’ cottage booking in the Cotswolds.

    Lj2019-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for families. Quite , well located.

    Kim2018-10-04T00:00:00Z

  • Beautiful cottage in a beautiful village. Very peaceful and cosy.

    Lj2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Willow Cottage exceeds expectations - it's a perfectly gorgeous gem of a Cotswold cottage in a picturesque village - really just a church and a handful of homes. The pastoral surroundings and the cottage itself could not have been more lovely. Thank you for being the anchor of our stay and we''ll look forward to a return visit.

  • Lovely stay. Unbelievably comfortable bed ! Beautiful original wood beams and stone walls, tasteful decor and a lovely place to unwind in. Came for a long weekend of total peace and quiet to relax and recharge ..... and pretty much got exactly that. Hosts left me all the details I needed and didn’t disturb me once , which I really appreciated. Thank You !

    Mitch2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely what you see on the photos - it is spotlessly clean, modern and on trend. The amenities leave nothing to be desired, even down to the little touches like dressing gowns on the bed and fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. The ‘check in’ was very quick and easy, all that was required was a key safe code. The property itself is in a perfect location, an idyllic little village with a pub straight across the road (that does amazing food!) and not too far from Bourton-On-The-Water which is beautiful and well worth a visit. Could not fault our stay and will definitely be recommending to our friends and family!

    Samantha2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book The Hayloft if your travels take you to the Northern Cotswolds. Beautiful home, perfect location, serene surroundings.

    Philip2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay and perfect location for visiting the stunning Cotswolds x

    Georgia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely gorgeous. Looks exactly as it does in the pictures. We really enjoyed the extra touches like biscuits in the kitchen and lovely smelling body washes in the bathroom. The apartment was also really warm and cosy. Location is great for general cotswolds exploring and the pub opposite (The Plough) is cosy and friendly. We were enjoying our stay so much that we requested an extra day, which the owner allowed us at no extra charge! We really couldn’t have been happier with our stay. I should also add that the bed is really comfy and everything felt sparkling clean.

    Emma2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a unique and beautiful location in the Cotswolds! Much bigger than I expected and we had a lovely time. Highly recommend.

    Amy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay and is in a really great location only a few minutes away from Bourton-on-the-Water, with lots of other walking stops nearby. Amenities are brilliant and the area the cottage is in is lovely and quiet. Would stay again

    Victoria2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a wonderful place to stay in the Cotswold, as being located within 45 min to 1 hour of main places to visit. Cold Aston is very quiet town with a family Pub across the street. We were able to rest a lot. No street’s sound, just the sound of birds to wake up to... The particular care and attention with a bottle of milk in the refrigerator and of bathrobes were much appreciated. Thanks a lot.. we have not left UK yet to get back to Canada, but we are already planning coming back to The Hayloft over next few years.

    Not a modern house in sight! Just a clutch of pretty cottages, a medieval village square and church – a Cotswolds bubble of peace. The Guggle is quirky, there's a classic cottagey beamed sitting room with an inglenook fireplace, games, well-thumbed Penguins, sofas to relax on... it's a homely space for families. The hub is a light airy kitchen where you pull up a pew at an eight seater table; and look out to the west-facing enclosed cottage garden, perfect for for al fresco meals and run-around space for the kids. For a first night or treat, order locally cooked pies and crumbles: delicious. There are four pretty bedrooms. Up a spiral staircase (not suitable for the elderly or infirm) to the first floor there are two beamed bedrooms which share a shower room, upstairs to the second floor there is a beamed master bedroom with en suite bathroom, a further double bedroom room and en suite shower room is on the ground floor. You can stroll to the pubs and shops in the village, cycle along the Cotswold lanes, walk along beautiful pathways or drive to National Trust houses and gardens Chedworth Roman Villa, Sherborne Lodge.
    The quirkiness of the cottage, it's very old c.1600 so expect low beams, spiral staircases (carpeted), exposed cotswold stone walls, and the unique Guggle room, a domed Cotswold stone room, with original 1700 wall painting.
    One of the Cotswolds 'forgotten' towns, with lovely places to eat and drink, bakers, butchers and village shop
  • We had a wonderful time at the Guggle.

    Adam2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • A great place for a getaway with family or friends

    Mike2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at the Guggle. The kitchen was really well stocked for a larger group with plenty of hot water and heating. Maps, games, speaker and tv were all welcome, along with wood for the fire and a bottle of fizz in the fridge. The Guggle was cosy and spacious. Loved all the extra touches...thanks again.

    Matthew2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • The Guggle is a great place to stay for anyone looking for a typical cotswolds property in a central location. The property is well equipped and relatively spacious. We were three families with two babies of two and three months and despite all the baby equipment it felt big enough for us all. There are some low ceilings and beams which guests need to be aware of, two of the men in our party were over 6 feet so the phrase 'watch your head' was used quite a lot. The old spiral staircase also takes a little bit of getting used to but is all part of the character of the property. I can't fault Emma as a host, she got back to us straight away when we had one or two queries. Overall a great experience.

    Rose2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! I would go back in a heartbeat. The cottage is beautiful, with a lounge spacious enough for the 8 of us. The beds were super comfortable and we all felt relaxed and welcome from the second we arrived. The village is cute, and we had an amazing meal in the Wheatsheaf which is a stones throw away. Emma was so friendly when we arrived and showed us everything we needed. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

    Shona2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage in a really picturesque village. The Wheatsheaf Inn being close by is a real draw. Wonderful host.

Or The Black Horse at Naunton is also a lovely village pub with great pub food and a cosy atmosphere.
    The Notgrove Estate is a 1500 acre family run working farm owned by Harry and Diana Acland. Set high up in the Cotswold Hills it has 400 acres of grassland in deep valleys and 100 acres of woodland and rolling arable fields. The farm has a mix of sheep, cattle and arable and has diversified with two horse livery yards and a holiday cottage business. In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds. The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
  • This place is everything you need and more. The pods are adorable and have a lot more room inside than you would think. We stayed for one night but wish we had stayed longer. Definitely order the fire pack if you can, it was pretty windy but we still managed to get the fire pit going and it was such a lovely way to end the evening. We met the owners when having brunch at the onsite café called the Nuttery. The food hit the spot and the staff and the owners were so welcoming and extremely hospitable. Definitely somewhere you will want to go back to in the future, we are already looking to book this place again! Thank you so much again! See you soon!

    Jennifer2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Pods were a really neat idea. If you like getting away from hotels and fussy check in and check outs this is a good one for you.

    Joe2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy pod in the countryside. Great fire pit and fire pack provided at additional cost. Extra special in the bright fresh sunshine as well as waking up to snow in the morning!

  • Lovely little pod on an equally lovely farm. The weather was cold but the pod was really cosy. We enjoyed walking around the estate and seeing all of the animals.

  • Lovely little cottage. Clean, cozy and a great location. The hosts even provided A Christmas tree for us🎄

    Michelle2019-12-24T00:00:00Z
  • The stay was perfect. The apartment is in a strategic point to visit the Cotswolds. Northleach is really very welcoming. Council to take croissants and fresh bread every morning from the baker in the square at 2 min walk from the apartment. Even if the check-in is automatic, you are equally warmly welcomed by a chocolate cake and fresh milk in the fridge. Nothing is missing! Moreover, the three times we needed a favor, Dani immediately worked to help us! Thanks for making our stay a blast!

    Veronica2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Malt Cottage is a cozy home, wonderfully situated in Nothleach. We walked next door to the pub for a pint upon arrival and then made a fire in the wood burner to enjoy while we made and ate dinner. An initial pile of wood was provided, along with a bit of milk and a Victoria Sponge. The beds were comfortable with plenty of blankets. Home is well situated to host a family and meet its basic needs. Note, there was no body soap in the shower. Thanks so much for a quick but lovely stay!

  • Lovely cottage with so much character

    Craig2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • What a gorgeous stay I had in this wonderfully charming, unique and welcoming cottage.

    Charles2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful few days staying in Penny's beautiful, unusual and clearly much-loved School House. This is the opposite of a sterile hotel or cookie-cutter Airbnb experience. We had the feeling of being invited to make ourselves at home and felt lucky to be able to take up the offer. Penny's hospitality was immediately apparent - fresh flowers, a beautifully laid table and breakfast things ready for the morning. Just lovely!

    Christopher2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is beautiful. Extremely comfortable stay, lovely views and Penny was an amazing host.

    Darren2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • lovely home, a joy to stay there,

    Eric2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • This house was magnificent and fully epitomised our imagination of a charming country home. The location could not be more convenient or beautiful and I encourage all future guests to witness the sunrise here - it's worth the early wake up! Penny was also a superb host who gave attention to every detail ensure we felt at home. Our stay was absolutely delightful and we highly recommend it to everyone!

    Richard2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here for our wedding anniversary and had such a lovely time, the place is super cosy, a proper authentic Airbnb, a home away from home. The pictures don't do this place justice, it's a real British cottage, well situated in the heart of the Cotswolds to easily drive and visit the surrounding areas or simply stay in and enjoy peace and quiet by the fire, in the picturesque home, cooking in a kitchen that has everything you might need. Plus the bed was super comfy and warm. Penny was quick to communicate, but left us to own devices. Her attention to detail was remarkable with little touches that made our stay special.

    George2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place and an amazing hostess. There was also breakfast for next morning. We had a wonderful time. Thank you Penny!

    A stylish open plan barn conversion, with gorgeous uninterrupted Cotswold countryside views. It's in a private setting, perfect for couples or solo visitors. Situated on the edge of a beautiful village, it's an ideal base for enjoying all the Cotswolds has to offer, including great walking and cycling, lovely country pubs and famous cultural/sporting events in nearby Cheltenham (@10 miles). Alternatively you can just relax, enjoy the scenery and do nothing at all.
    We are perched on top of a hill on the edge of a beautiful and typical Cotswold village in an area of outstanding natural beauty. At the top of our driveway, tucked away from the main house, is our barn. If you are looking for something a little bit different but with a modern feel, gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and privacy, then this will be for you. Our pool house was converted from a small stone barn and, as the name suggests, there is an outdoor pool and one side of the building looks out on to this (though it's only open June-August). The other side looks out on to uninterrupted views of magnificent rolling hills, complete with sheep, pheasants and birds of prey. Outdoor furniture is available. Inside it's a little non-conventional, and is open plan, with a mezzanine bedroom area that has a huge gable-end window and an 11-rung wall-fixed ladder to get you up to it. Up there is a low-level double bed and a cargo net that pulls across the mezzanine opening for extra safety, if needed. NB We are very sorry but this won't be suitable for anyone who cannot ably and confidently use a ladder to go both up and down. There is a separate toilet with a small hand basin and a walk-in overhead shower (please note no bath) with a connecting changing area where you can also store/hang things out of the way. The main room is open plan and has a kitchen area with an island and seating for 6. It's well equipped and includes gas hob, electric oven, fridge with small freezer box, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle (no washing machine/dryer). There is a huge, very comfy corner sofa for relaxing and there's a TV with an Amazon Firestick with a small selection of channel apps including Netflix and Amazon Prime. It has under floor heating throughout. Please note we do not have curtains on the massive sliding doors on each side, however it is private where the barn is situated with no buildings overlooking it. There are removable blackouts that can be used on the gable-end window on the mezzanine/bedroom level, for those who prefer less light when sleeping. Outside there's a lovely deck and beyond the pool is a private garden area leading on to a paddock. Wifi works very well, mobile not very well at all, though you can hook-up to the wifi and use wifi calling, if you have it and that works perfectly.
    Our area is very beautiful, very green, very quiet and very rural. This makes for a relaxing and peaceful stay. It's also super-dark at night as we have no street lights. If you are looking for night-life you'd have to go to Cheltenham (15 mins drive, cab possible with a bit of pre-planning). Please note you will have to drive to get to a pub or shop.
  • Lovely and clean. Perfect getaway

    Chloe2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Tina...it was a lovely barn and beautiful surroundings. Worth a visit.

    Razia2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was perfect! The converted barn was just what we needed and had everything for a lovely weekend. Views were amazing and the host left us to it but was only a message away. Highly recommend this place.

    Christina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

    Rhys2020-02-24T00:00:00Z

    Dan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a very private, enjoyable stay in your pool house. The decor is modern and minimal as shown in the pictures- the bathroom and shower were functional and spacious. Even during stormy weather the views are beautiful and it’s very peaceful. We went to Cheltenham which is only a 15 minute drive. We didn’t go walking because of the weather but the pack in the barn is full of ideas. A pint of milk in the fridge would be my only suggestion. Otherwise everything was perfect.

    Alex2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • Great place to stay - centrally located in Northleach, clean and smart inside, parking, and Colette was helpful and quick to respond.

    Adam2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Self check in was easy with a lockbox, didn’t get to meet Colette but she was helpful through messages and really sweet to have left us complimentary wine and chocolate. We enjoyed this cute and clean place. Two rooms upstairs with 2 single and 1 sofa bed as described in the listing. Shower is great with the temperature and pressure. Provided disposable shavers, tooth brushes, and shampoo+condition+lotion. Appreciated those. We didn’t however use the laundry machine as we didn’t like the smell it had altho we really wanted to. A funny note - we struggled a little to lock the door, didn’t know how but managed to figure out in the end. Not sure if it’s a UK specialty but definitely something we weren’t familiar with. Haha oh and we appreciate that the wifi at this place worked well. oh and there’s Netflix included. Yay

    Yin Hsuan2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Arrived at this great place with no issues, directions and instructions were spot on. Colette had everything perfect for us, from a travel cot to plastic plates and cups for our little one. The house is very stylishly decorated, the bed is huge and super comfortable and there was plenty of space in the bedroom for a travel cot. TV having Netflix was good, we were able to watch films in the evenings. Location was great, close to other towns and places of interest in the Cotswolds. Within Northleach itself, we had a great lunch in the black cat cafe and everything was in walking distance. Would definitely recommend this place.

    Jill2019-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little cottage in a beautiful area! We loved our stay here, thank you!

    Helen2019-05-15T00:00:00Z
  • My mother, boyfriend and I visited the Cotswolds for the weekend and really enjoyed our stay at Colette’s home. Colette was very quick to respond to any queries we had and her home was just beautiful. It was very comfortable and just walking distance to the local shops and a short drive to other towns. Thank you Colette!

    Marina2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful quaint place in the Cotswolds. Everything you need is accessible within a 2 minute walk. The house is done up beautifully and comfortably houses 4. The cleanliness of the place was outstanding and the amenities resemble how any good house should be. The place is maintained very well and Colette is a great host - She communicates quickly and clearly with you on whatever you need. If you are searching for a place in the Cotswolds, your search should end here!

  • Very nice cottage true to the description an pictures. Colette's cottage was sparkling clean, nicely decorated with all amenities we needed. We appreciated Colette's kind attention (bottle of prosecco and biscuits on the kitchen's table on our arrival) and responsiveness each time we had a question. The cottage is situated in the centre of Northleach with a Budgens less than 5 min away (walking), which is quite handy. Good location as well to visit other villages. My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Colette's place.

The cottage had everything we needed and Charlotte was a great host, she was on hand to answer any questions we had throughout the stay. Northleach is a good base when visiting the Cotswolds, a few minutes drive from Bourton on the Water not far from Cheltenham & Cirencester. Make sure you visit the Wheatsheaf Inn and get a takeaway from 'The Takeaway' as well.

  • Extremely well presented , very clean and well situated .

    Sara2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • An excellent cottage in the centre of Northleach. Stumbling distance from the Wheatsheaf Inn and brilliantly located for dog walks and the other wonderful opportunities that Northleach has to offer. Charlee stocked the house with milk, tea, cake and firewood - we couldn’t have been happier! We will be staying again and have recommended the cottage to friends who live in the village as a place for future guests.

    Catherine2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy cottage in a fabulous location! Charlotte’s house was perfect for our stay. She had kindly left a cake and some milk to welcome us so we settled in with tea and cake. The pub opposite was lovely-we were lucky to have wonderful weather so spent lots of time drinking (eye wateringly expensive!) wine in the pub’s garden. We didn’t use the cottage’s kitchen but it was well stocked and clean. The shower was good and there’s a separate bath if that’s your thing. Charlotte was very responsive to questions and accommodating about an earlier arrival time. We have family in the village so now we’ve found Charlotte’s cottage we’ll be back!

    Jude2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great weekend spent in this lovely cottage, fulfilled all our needs and would book again.

    Natalie2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our stay at Charlotte’s cottage that is very comfy and conveniently located in Cotswold (easy to get to other nearby villages by car).

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Super place! We really enjoyed our stay here.

I can Definitely recommend this place just take some games with you in case of rainy days ;-)

    Welcome to Cotswold View, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Cotswold View is a stunning contemporary property, on the ground floor of a new eco-friendly Cotswold stone farmhouse, which sits on a small farm with spectacular south easterly views across the beautiful Windrush Valley. As well as the lovely countryside views, a wide variety of wildlife can often be seen from the property, and yet the farm is located only half a mile up a country lane from the famous Cotswolds village of Bourton-on-the-Water. Affectionately known as the "Venice of the Cotswolds", due to the lovely river that meanders through the centre of the village, Bourton is surrounded by stunning countryside, with numerous walks on the doorstep, and a central location that makes it ideal for exploring the entire Cotswolds region and beyond. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Cotswold View is accessed through the farmyard, and once you reach the front door, the only thing you look out over are miles of unbroken countryside. The front door opens into the main open-plan living space of the property, with all the rooms on the same ground floor level: •Living room/kitchen/dining area: This bright and spacious open plan space has floor to ceiling windows, which offer spectacular views across the Windrush Valley. The living room area contains plenty of seating with two comfy sofas and a side chair, a very realistic wood free electric log stove, and a flatscreen TV, with a Blu-ray player. One of the sofas opens up to form a single sofa bed for children under 10, if required.The large kitchen area is well equipped, with an electric oven, four ring induction hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster, washing machine and tumble dryer. The dining area contains a table, with seating for five; •Master bedroom: Further floor to ceiling windows provide lovely views across the Windrush Valley. The bedroom can be set up as either a super king size bed, or two single beds; •Bedroom 2: Located at the rear of the property, this room contains a double bed. There is no window in the bedroom, however the door and the wall separating the room from the main living area are glazed, to allow natural light in, with a curtain for privacy; •Family bathroom: The property layout means the bathroom can either be an ensuite or a family bathroom. It contains a bath, walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin. Immediately outside the front door is a patio area, with a table and four chairs, which is perfect for whiling away time and watching the wide array of wildlife that regularly visits the farm. The open grounds of the farm wrap around the house and extend down a grassy hill to the enclosed paddocks beyond. There is a charcoal barbecue at the property and ample off street parking is available next to the farmhouse.
    Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the "Venice of the Cotswolds", its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton. The river is fed from many springs, with the source approximately ten miles from the village and, after flowing under the bridges of Bourton, it passes other villages before eventually joining the Thames. There are various attractions in the village, including the famous Birdland, which is home to a variety of birds from around the world. Here visitors can see parrots, pelicans, flamingos and penguins to name just a few, with experienced keepers feeding the birds and leading demonstrations. The Model Village is well worth a visit, as Bourton is the only village in the Cotswolds to have a one-ninth scale replica of itself. It is carefully maintained and has all of the characterful buildings including the Old Water Mill and the Old New Inn. Those lucky enough to witness snow in the winter months will notice photographers at the model village trying to get the perfect picture of the snowy scene.
  • We had a lovely stay. The apartment was sparkling clean and had spectacular views. Some lovely touches by the hosts and they brought a little book for our 2 year old son as a present. Very hospitable

    Gary2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, within a couple of minutes drive into the centre of Bourton-on-the-Water. Everything is clean & well thought out. Amazing view & the ability to sit & birdwatch all day long if you have no plans to go out. We visited in February & had rain most days but with the underfloor heating & electric 'fire', we managed to dry out & warm up quickly after a soggy day out. We'll definitely be back in the future, maybe at a sunnier time of year

    Joanne2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay, lovely views and an awesome bathroom!

    Charlotte2019-12-09T00:00:00Z

    Rafael2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Cotswolds View. The hosts were communicative, the check in was easy, and the space was nice and clean. The walk to town was not bad despite the incline (though bring a flashlight at night). Thanks Character Cottages!

    This gorgeous new development, surrounded by open countryside, is built on the site of the old Westwoods Grammar School, with Rixon Road named after one of the old school houses, itself named after William Augustus Rixon (1858–1948) who was a renowned artist, landowner and Sheriff of Gloucestershire. The historic town of Northleach is just a few minutes’ walk from Hawthorn Cottage and is one of the best surviving examples of a medieval “New Town”. It was built in an area of almost entirely open sheep country by the church and local landowners who wanted to develop a network of markets where rents and levies could be collected! By 1227 the town was granted its market charter and really began to prosper (a market takes place to this day, every Wednesday). The town’s gentry prospered on wool from the famous Cotswold Lion breed, with the architecture of the town, and in particular the church of St Peter and St Paul, reflecting their wealth. With the decline of the wool industry, the town’s fortunes declined, but it picked up again with the development of a coaching route between Wales and London. The route that became the A40 was itself the reason for the second decline in the town’s fortunes with the rush of modern traffic through the town centre. In the 1980s a bypass was constructed, and the town returned to its peaceful market town roots, luckily with many of its historic 15th-, 16th- and 17th-century landmarks still intact for today’s travellers to explore. (See ‘Local Amenities’ below for more details of Northleach, including restaurant recommendations.) If you’d like to explore the well-known historic and natural sights of the Cotswolds –perhaps wander around Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford and the grounds of Sudeley Castle or visit Cheltenham Races - yet prefer modern, luxury living to beams and thatched roof tops, look no further than the sumptuously equipped Hawthorn Cottage in the ancient market town of Northleach!
  • A lovely house that was very suitable for our needs.

    Laura2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • A superb house, modern and spotless. My family loved staying here. It was such a cosy home, warm, with everything we needed. A lovely, stunning home. Thank you for having us.

    Paul2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a lovely home, every room is beautifully presented and catered for all our needs. We didn't want to leave! Ample space for our family get together and lots of really nice touches like the candles, wash products, luxury soft furnishings in all the bedrooms. Communication from the host is excellent, we were really well looked after. We will definitely be coming back!

    Michelle2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very luxurious house with everything you could possibly need! Great location with a short walk into the picturesque village. Would definitely return.

    Rebecca2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely stay for me and my group of friends. Comfortably houses 8. We were allowed to have our friend’s dog with us, which made all the difference. The weather was cold and raining (and sadly no wood burner for us as it was out for repair) but plenty of info out for local jaunts. We holed up away from the rain and had a wonderful time!

    Escape for a relaxing Cotswolds getaway. Riverside Cottage is a charming old stone cottage located in the picturesque hamlet of Compton Abdale, nestled in a valley in the heart of the Cotswolds, about 10 minutes drive from Cheltenham, Northleach and Bourton-on-the-Water.
    Compton Abdale is a quintessential Cotswold hamlet in a glorious valley. In the centre of the village a natural spring treasured since Roman times gushes water out through the head of a crocodile carved in stone. From the crocodile a steep path leads up to the old church of St.Oswalds. Just below this path sits Riverside Cottage just a few steps from the crocodile along the lane bordered by the little stream of spring water that flows under the cottage doorstep. Duck your head as you open the old front door! On your right is a tiny dining room with a fireplace and a little round table to eat at. Continue through to the well-equipped galley kitchen to put the kettle on. Make your way back through the dining room around to the cozy sitting room where you can settle into an easy chair to read. We have good, fast internet and wi-fi that covers the whole house, but we do not have a television, so bring your laptop for a Netflix binge weekend! By the side door off the kitchen is a rustic flagstone patio surrounded by high stone walls. It's a great place to sit out in the morning. Upstairs are two bedrooms, each with a double bed. The ground floor bathroom with a large bath and integral shower completes the house. An oil-fired boiler provides heating throughout the cottage and copious supplies of hot water (the fireplaces are more of a decorative item than heat source, but a log fire can add to the general coziness.) It's small, but truly charming and the house is tastefully furnished with antique country furniture.
    The ancient village of Compton Abdale, on the outskirts of Cheltenham, is very secluded but easily accessible. There are no shops or pubs in Compton Abdale, but the neighbouring town of Northleach (in fact, a large village) offers a general store, a really superb butchers, an award-winning pub, a newly refurbished wine bar, a café and a Post Office. Nearby Cheltenham, reputedly one of the most complete Regency towns in England, boasts many beautiful listed buildings and hosts cultural activities ranging from music and theatre to cricket and horseracing. With many unspoilt Cotswold towns and villages within a short drive and walking routes running (sometimes literally) right by the doorstep, this wonderful cottage is a perfect holiday destination all year round.
  • Was blown away by Riverside cottage. The cottage is so homely & cosy and the river Coln running right past the house was such a special extra! We had everything we needed and Adrian was so helpful! Perfect for a weekend escape from the bustle of city life.

    Alisha2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Such a great stay at River Cottage, the house is lovely with all sorts of great touches in the bathroom and kitchen particularly. Getting fresh bread, eggs and milk delivered was fantastic on Saturday morning. Adrian was easy to communicate with, friendly and gave lots of advice. The beds were comfy, water hot and heating on when we arrived on a chilly day. I've already booked another stay in September! I would highly recommend.

    Jenni2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect! This is a perfect home base to explore the Cotswolds. Each of the Cotswold towns on our list were only 10-15 minutes away by car. But we also got that perfect, secluded experience you would hope to get by traveling to the Cotswolds as many of the popular towns have become busier. This home was charming! Like out of a movie...which is kind of what we were going for...ever seen The Holiday? ;-). We sat by the fire every night and enjoyed the fresh local bread, milk, and eggs that were delivered straight to the front door. Perfectly idyllic. All residents of this little town are so sweet and nice to chat to if you happen to come across them while on a walk. Would love to return someday.

    Miriam2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most charming AirBnB we have stayed at, full of personality and sense of place. A great location rob base a holiday in the Cotswolds, a delightful small friendly village convenient for day trips and picturesque walks. We spent a few days over Christmas in this cosy cottage, a very memorable festive holiday.

    Rowan2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely cottage! Outstanding from Adrian, it was a wonderful experience for my husband and I during our weekend stay.

    Chris2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is even more idyllic than the pictures imply! It’s very compact and traditional but all the more cosy for it. The village is delightfully small and picturesque. The walk to Yanworth is lovely and Adrian couldn’t have been more helpful. The perfect place for a quiet, rustic, rural retreat.

  • Lovely little stylish hideaway - off the beaten track just the way we like it. The Stump for pizza and pasta and the yummiest garlic dip we’ve ever tasted in the world is just a few minutes away. Kate lit us a fire both nights and it was just right for our contemplative escape from our busy stressful lives. Thank you Kate!

    Kylie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Kate’s place. The space is really stylish, clean and has everything you need. With the log burner and heaters it was super cosy and warm even in mid-feb! Despite being attached to the house there is a separate entrance to the studio so the whole area still felt nicely private. As shown in the description there is just a toaster, fridge, kettle and microwave but this was not a problem at all and we were kindly left milk, bread, condiments, tea, coffee and muesli for breakfast which was a really nice touch. We enjoyed two lovely meals at the Seven Tuns and at the Stump in the evenings - would highly recommend both! Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Laura2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kate’s place was extremely cosy and perfect for a getaway weekend. Even though the weather was bad, Kate’s place was a great place to stay in. Very clean and accommodating, would definitely stay again!

    Laura2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lucy's house is great and has everything you'd want from a Cotswolds cottage. Great location and excellent amenities in the house - we appreciated the cake very much!

    Alex2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Spent a lovely long weekend here with friends - you couldn’t ask for a better location, there are some lovely places to eat and drink steps away from the house and other towns are a short drive away. Bedrooms and big and spacious - the master bedroom has a lovely open plan bathroom attached to it, however the toilet is probably a bit too on the public side for us haha. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen, everything is super easy to find and of good quality too. Loads of board games and entertainment inside the property too, which is perfect when staying home of an evening with the little ones. Cosy, warm and clean - great spot for exploring all the local areas.

    Lucy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay at Lucy's cottage. The location was even better than I expected - a 20 second walk to the main square of a wine bar, pub, shop, cafe, takeaway and more. The cottage was perfectly clean and had everything we needed for 4 of us and a dog. Lucy even had a delicious cake waiting for us on arrival. Check in and out was very simple too. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone visiting the Cotswolds!

    Emma2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lucy is such a thoughtful host, we were staying over the festive period and she had decorated the cottage beautifully and left little touches to welcome me and my family. It was our second trip with our newborn and the cottage was very well equipped with travel cot, washing machine etc. Not only that, the place is pet friendly she provided a dog bed and biscuits, our pooch was very happy and we had some lovely walks in the surrounding area along the river and countryside. The cottage was spotless and she was very communicative to answer any questions. I loved Northleach, not as touristy as other villages in the Cotswolds (which are in easy reach by car) and just 1 min walk you have a lovely wine bar, coffee shop serving breakfast and a village store open 8-8 everyday. We had lunch on New Year’s Day in the trendy Wheatsheaf pub, it’s recommended to book ahead as it’s popular. Would definitely recommend her place and we would happily visit again in the future. Fabulous stay and was sad to leave!

    Charming cottage which is perfectly located for a relaxing break or holiday in the Cotswolds. Designed for comfort, the interior has been refurbished to a high standard. We are in a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and are a popular destination for walkers and cyclists who want to explore the many footpaths and bridleways. The cottage is a 2.5 mile drive from Bourton-on-the-Water and a short walk across the fields to the local pub in Cold Aston.
    The Cottage adjoins our farmhouse; it is surrounded by wonderful Sycamore parkland. and is south facing. The cottaage has a tranquil, private garden with it's own access and parking. We are a small arable farm and also run a low key campsite in Spring and Summer. The cottage is a short walk (15 to 20 mins) across fields to our local pub which serves food most days. There are other pubs with restuarants that are a 45 minute/hour walk from us. A car is necessary for most supplies and for access from the train station. The nearest supermarket is in Bourton-on-the-Water. There are many wonderful villages with cafes, pubs and restaurants that are within a 5 mile radius and are perfect destinations for cyclists. Suggested destinations are Naunton, Guiting Power, Temple Guiting, Winchcombe, Sherborne, Stow, Northleach, The Slaughters and Chedworth.
    The Cottage lies between 2 villages. Cold Aston is a great example of an unspoiled Cotswold village with a pub (The Plough), primary school and church. Notgrove remains mainly an estate owned village; it feels as if it has been untouched by time. The Parish church is St Bartholomew and is believed to be on the site of a Saxon cemetery. It houses effigies to the descendants of Richard Whittington (Dick Whittington). Both villages were mentioned in the Doomsday book with Cold Aston likely to have derived from a Roman settlement and Notgrove first mentioned in 716 AD. They are a short walk from the cottage. Visit local gems such as Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park, Sudeley Castle, the Slaughters, Bibury, Chedworth Roman Villa, Stow on the Wold, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cirencester Corinium Museum. We are a 20-minute drive from Cheltenham which is famous for its many festivals from Racing to Literature to Jazz and Science. Consider a day trip exploring Gloucester, Bath, Stratford Upon Avon, Bicester Village and Oxford. Other suggestions include; Blenheim Palace and gardens, Sezincote House and gardens, Bourton House Garden, Chastleton House and gardens, Batsford Arboretum, Cotswold Falconry Centre (Batsford), Soho Farmhouse, Daylesford Organic Farm Shop.
  • The cottage is in a great location close to a variety of places to see and only a short walk through the fields to The Plough Inn, Cold Aston. (This pub is a must visit, the food was great). The cottage was clean and it had everything we needed to feel like a home away from home with our 10 month old. Sarah is an excellent host, quick to respond to any queries and very welcoming on arrival with great knowledge of the local area. We will definitely be returning.

    Vicky2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah was a wonderful host and made us feel very welcome. The cottage is as lovely as the pictures look and in a great location, it’s peaceful and has footpaths and walks on your doorstep and is also close to lots of great restaurants and shops. We would definitely recommend it as a lovely place to stay in the Cotswolds.

    Shama2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is lovely; well designed with french windows overlooking sweeping fields. All the interiors are of high quality and well stocked. The surrounding area is beautiful, quiet and a pub 15 minute walk away.

  • Thank you for a lovely long weekend in the Cotswolds! The Cottage is beautiful and clean. It is in a great location and easily accessible to local tourist spots and amenities. We had a warm, peaceful and comfortable stay with our dogs. Would definitely recommend a visit.

    Emily2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is one of my favourite AirBnBs ever. The house is very comfortable and clean, with everything you need for a home away from home. The enclosed garden was perfect for our dog. The location is also great, you're very close to Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold which have any shops you might need. We did some local walks, which were easily accessible from the Cottage and in beautiful surroundings. We didn't get great weather, but the house was warm, dry and cosy which was everything we needed while it rained outside.

    Grace2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing spacious cottage in great location to explore the cotswolds. Enjoyed Bourton on the Water and surrounding area, and would love to go back in the summer when the weather wasn’t as bad. We braved the rain for the walk to the Plough Inn at Cold Ashton which is a hidden gem of a pub. Sarah was amazing host with excellent communication and Prompt responses . We will definitely visit again soon.

    Martyn2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Cottage was wonderful - spacious, comfortable, clean, exactly as shown in the photos. It was easy to find with your directions and in a great location for popular Cotswolds villages. The "posh" Co-OP nearby was a fabulous supermarket with regular and gourmet foods and a brilliant wine selection. We cant say enough good things about it and look forward to returning soon. Thank you! Sarah

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Had a great time with big group of friends, really quirky cottage really set up well to enjoy country walks and recouping by the fire and big meals!

  • This was a last minute booking and we were so pleased to have our booking accepted. The location is truly idyllic and Sophie and Hugh went above and beyond in providing breakfast goodies with local eggs, pastries, home made marmalade and fresh flowers. The cottage was so comfortable and we really enjoyed the log burner. We didn’t have children with us , but we know our grandchildren would love the dolls house, toys and books provided. There are also a great selection of books for adults and DVD’s too. Lots to do and see within a short drive and lovely walks from the door. If you are looking for an extremely comfortable and homely stay in an exceptionally well equipped cottage then look no further. Thank you, we loved our stay here.

  • A beautiful cozy cottage in the most idyllic location.

  • I love everything about staying with you in Chedworth. It was lovely to be able to bring Niall along with me this time and we can’t wait to come again soon. We can’t have a fire in our property and it’s so important to us, so coming home from exploring to a warm fire is so lovely for us. I love looking out of the sky light when I’m in the bath, and Chedworth is just so lovely. And walking around the village yesterday we were treated by several Barn Owls, wow. Our breakfast was much appreciated and so tasty, we are so sad to leave. Thank-you Sophie and Hugh, give Peggy-sue a big fuss from us too. xxx

  • In a nutshell: this felt like a home away from home, from the moment we arrived. Bright and full of natural light, this cottage is colorfully decorated and comfortably furnished, making it feel very cozy and warm. Lots of books, toys for the kids, a fire in the fireplace, and gorgeous walks right outside the front door -- everything we needed for an incredible, memorable stay!

    This is a cozy Cotswold Cottage with plenty of character. We are lucky to have 2 sitting rooms both with open fires and chimneys that draw really well. The famous Wheatsheaf pub is a short 3 minute walk away and there are a number of beautiful Cotswold walks from the house to walk off any hangovers!
    We have 3 double bedrooms and a very comfortable sofa bed in one of the sitting rooms if someone doesn’t want to share. The kitchen has a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer and we are lucky enough to have 2 separate bathrooms, one with a bath, and a WC and a downstairs one with a shower and WC. We also have a great south facing garden which is perfect for BBQs in the summer.
    We have neighbours who we share a section of the drive with so please make sure you park your cars only on the tarmac areas through the black metal gates.

    Eastington, Near Northleach, Eastington, United Kingdom

    The Old Post Office is in the pretty hamlet of Fossebridge, in a spectacular dip in the Roman Fosse Way, between the Gloucestershire towns of Cirencester and Northleach. This 7-bedroom, 3-bathroom property, which dates back to the 17th Century, has a wealth of character, including flagstone floors, beamed ceilings and feature fireplaces. Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome (*See below).
    (*Dogs: Up to 2 well-behaved dogs are welcome at The Old Post Offcie at an additional cost of £30 per dog. Please let us know if you will be bringing a dog(s) and we will then revise your booking confirmation.) Full Description Ground Floor Entrance The Old Post Office is entered through the Outer Courtyard door (Note: the main oak door at the front is very old and tricky to open from outside though it does open from the inside). Step inside from the Courtyard onto the original flagstone flooring and turn left along the hallway to head into the Dining Room. Dining Room The striking dining room is at the heart of The Old Post Office and features a large antique dining table, with seating for 6 (extra seating can me brought in from the Breakfast Room) and an impressive open fireplace. A tall, glass-fronted dresser houses china and glassware for 12 guests, plus plates and bowls for use in the garden. Original beams and an unusual chandelier over the table add to the wonderful character of the room. The Kitchen The kitchen, with its high-beamed ceiling, shaker style units and quirky chicken and duck pictures and ornaments, brings to mind a French farmhouse kitchen. A small breakfast bar sits adjacent to the original stone hatch - an ideal place to perch for a morning cuppa or to sit and chat while a meal is being prepared. The kitchen is fully equipped with gadgets, appliances and basic cooking supplies, including range oven/hob, microwave, dishwasher, Nespresso machine, kettle, toaster, crockery, glassware (including champagne flutes) and cutlery for 12, blenders, bakeware, saucepans, teapot, cafetière, bowls, serving dishes and recipe books. (See ‘Facilities’ for more details.) Living room This beautiful room is very much the heart of the house and really gives the impression of stepping back into the 17th Century with its smooth flagstones, huge wooden beams and window seats. Dominated by sumptuous sofas, armchairs and an impressive inglenook fireplace with a Clearview multi-fuel log burner, this room is an inviting entertaining and relaxing area, away from the distraction of a TV, which is in the Snug. Storage Room This handy room off the Living Room is a bit of an Aladdin’s Cave! It’s where you will find the washing machine and dryer, clothes rack, brooms, mop, vacuum, cleaning products, an old but working fridge-freezer and the water immersion heater. Snug This elegant, dual aspect second reception room, with its duck-egg blue walls, sink-in corner sofa and open fireplace, is the ideal place to retreat to play a game, curl up with a book (on the sofa or window seat) or watch a film on the extra-large TV (with Amazon TV) or DVD player (A wide choice of DVDs is provided). Light from the garden pours into the room and is reflected in a stunning mirror over the marble mantelpiece. Return to the Courtyard entrance hall and through to: Bedroom 3 Located at the end of the downstairs hallway, this cosy king size double bedroom with brass bedstead feels a bit like a retreat within a retreat with its inglenook fireplace, window seat overlooking the Outer Courtyard and original feature oven. The stone walls and wood panelling add to the unique setting of this ground floor bedroom. Shower Room This contemporary shower room with polished limestone flooring and tiling, sink and dual flush W.C. and heated towel rail is ideally located for guests in Bedroom 3 but is also useful as an alternative to the upstairs Family Bathroom for guests sleeping on the upper floors. Inner Hallway Between Bedroom 3 and the Shower Room is a small hall with a full-length mirror, hanging hooks for coats and plenty of space to keep muddy boots and shoes. Off the Inner Hallway is an Inner Courtyard which leads to the Annex (see below for description of Annex) Upstairs Main House A wide wooden staircase in the Living Room leads to Landing One, with a pretty window seat overlooking the garden. Left to: Bedroom 1 This striking master bedroom, with its ornamental Victorian fireplace and painted tile surround, is furnished with a mahogany king-size sleigh bed, antique chaise-longue, mahogany cupboard, chest of drawers, a dressing table and mirror and a flat screen TV/DVD player. As you walk across the original, slightly creaky, oak floorboards to gaze out over the landscaped garden you’re sure to appreciate the long history of the house. Family Bathroom The pale olive-green Shaker-style wood panelling in the family bathroom makes this a very inviting and relaxing space. Featuring a full-size bath with a hand-held shower, a large sink, with an eye-catching blue mosaic mirror, and a dual flush toilet. Bedroom 2 At the end of the landing is a gorgeous twin room (the beds can be linked to make a king-size bed) decorated in a calming silver-sage green colourway. The cushioned window seat beckons you to take a pew and read a book or gaze out over the garden. This bedroom has a hanging cupboard, large chest of drawers and mirror, and bedside tables with reading lamps. Bedroom 4 An ideal bedroom for a younger guest with its single, Victorian, iron bedstead and pretty window seat with views over the garden. A large walk-in cupboard with chest of drawers provides plenty of space to hang clothes and store suitcases (or hide during a game of sardines!). The room is also furnished with a ladderback chair and bedside cabinet. Landing 2 A winding, carpeted staircase leads up to Landing Two, with a large storage cupboard and full-length mirror, and the two attic bedrooms right up in the eaves, but with plenty of space: Bedroom 6 (Attic Room 2) This single bedroom features The Old Post Office’s striking oak A frame. Extensive built-in cupboards and a large desk, with plenty of power points for computers/devices, makes this a great spot for studying or playing computer games, as well as sleeping in the pretty metal-frame day bed. Bedroom 5 (Attic Room 1) At the far end of the converted attic, through a linking cut-out doorway (from Attic Room 2), is Bedroom 5 or Attic Room 1, a double bedroom featuring the far end of the home’s ancient oak A-frame. The bedroom has extensive built-in cupboards and drawers, bedside tables and reading lamps and a Velux window (with blind). Annex The well-appointed, two-storey Annex has two entrances: one leading from the parking area into the living room on the top floor and the othevia the Inner Courtyard that links to the Shower Room in the main house. Outside The property has a gated entrance to both the front and side. There is a gravel driveway to the side of the property with ample off-street parking for 4 cars. Access to the first floor of the annexe is located from the parking area. Between the annex and the main house is a small paved courtyard. A pretty walkway from the parking area leads down some steps, past a small pond, through the landscaped garden to both an Outer Courtyard, and the rear entrance, and on round to the front door. All the rooms, except the kitchen, face south and have lovely views over the mature garden, with its shrubs, herbaceous boarders and towering trees, bordered by the babbling River Coln. The garden has several paved terraces, with plenty of outdoor seating and tables for a meal for 12 or a quiet drink in the sunshine. A charcoal BBQ is provided for guests to use, placed down by the river terrace.

  • Comfortable and relaxed. Very quirky and full of character. Welcome pack of local produce a lovely touch. Small observation is that for the size of the property and number of bedrooms, the house would benefit from having an extra shower room. The Inn over the road served good food and was very welcoming. A lovely , relaxing weekend!!

    Tracey2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

    Rob2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • This is a super well equipped and comfortable house with lots of historic charm, great walks and a great pub opposite. Some may find the proximity of the A429 a bit disturbing.

    Hazel2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Superb stay, the house was great for a family of 9 with plenty of room inside and out. Everything we needed was provided, the house was cosy and warm. The location is excellent with many local attractions nearby. The Inn across the road was very convenient with a friendly welcome. The walks from the doorstep were very good too. The kids really enjoyed exploring making the old post office room a kids only room which also worked out well for the adults. Everyone enjoyed our stay and we hope to visit again.

    Gavin2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Maratha and Chris were really friendly hosts and quick to answer any questions we had. We had such a great family weekend away at the Old Post Office and would definitely recommend. The house had so much character and was lots of fun to stay in, the kids loved exploring it all. The garden was also great, with so much space for the children to run around in and lots of spots to sit and relax. There were also lots of good nearby walks you could do from the house.

    Hannah2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • The Old Post Office was the perfect venue for our extended family get-together (12 adults + 2 small children). The house is really well equipped and the outside seating area is ideal for BBQs. Martha is also a fantastic host whose great communications and thoughtful touches made our stay go like clockwork.

    The Priest House is situated in the garden of our home on the edge of the village, next to the beautiful Saxon Church of St Andrews. We are only 1.5 miles from the popular wedding venue of Cripps Barn. The cottage sleeps 2 people in one bedroom. It is ideal for a romantic getaway or just a well earned rest!
    The Priest House is a restored 14th Century building. It sits in the garden of our home, but has its own private garden. There is plenty of parking space in the drive way. Coln Rogers is a tiny village in the Coln Valley approximately 8 miles from the market town of Cirencester. It is in an area of outstanding natural beauty and there are lovely walks and places of interest to visit close by. The Priest House is not suitable for children
    The Coln valley is one of the most picturesque areas of the Cotswolds. It is one of the few areas where you don't experience planes, road noise or have your views interrupted by pylons. There are some great pubs nearby serving delicious food. Cirencester has a number of bars, cafe's and restaurants. This is also the place to go for supermarkets and other shops.
  • What an amazing place - the setting is stunning as is the property. The quality of the furnishings and equipment was second to none - and the best welcome basket I've ever seen Such a lovely relaxing stay in this cozy cottage. If you are after getting away from it all this is certainly the tonic. Will certainly recommend to friends & family.

  • The cottage is so beautiful in a glorious setting! Joanna was a very friendly and helpful host and added some lovely touches such as croissants, eggs and cake in the kitchen and lovely toiletries in the bathroom. Each room was done up beautifully and the place was spotless. There are so many nice pubs to go to in the area for dinner and many gorgeous villages nearby to visit too. We really loved it thanks Joanna!

    Notgrove Estate is one of the few remaining privately owned Cotswold estates offering 1500 acres of private rolling farmland. We have mapped out walks, around the estate and local area and can recommend longer walks if required. Our working farm has sheep and cattle as well as our pet goats, donkeys and alpaca who live just across the track from the pods . You can hire bikes from the local company via our website. We are ideally located to visit the local attractions of Bourton on the Water (3 miles) Stow on the Wold (5 miles) or Burford, Stratford Upon Avon, Cheltenham. Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park is a 15 minute drive away and The Cotswold Wildlife Park is a 25 drive away.

The local pub is The Plough at Cold Aston, this is a 1.5 miles walk from us across the fields or down a quiet lane - with lovely food and beers. Or The Black Horse at Naunton is also a lovely village pub with great pub food and a cosy atmosphere.
    The Notgrove Estate is a 1500 acre family run working farm owned by Harry and Diana Acland. Set high up in the Cotswold Hills it has 400 acres of grassland in deep valleys and 100 acres of woodland and rolling arable fields. The farm has a mix of sheep, cattle and arable and has diversified with two horse livery yards and a holiday cottage business. In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds. The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
  • Our stay at the Poppy Pod was lovely. It was the perfect little space for just my husband and I whilst we were visiting the Cotswolds. We really enjoyed making use of the fire pit, and watching the alpacas across the way. What a lovely little spot.
