4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
Great Rissington, Gloucestershire, England
The cottage is built of Cotwold stone in the local style of architecture, with gables and dormers. Decorated in very traditional style, it has a wood burning fire (we supply logs), Rayburn (Aga) cooker, and large garden. Yet renovated to include power showers, the latest central heating, conventional and microwave cookers, and other comforts.

It has been listed 4* Gold by the English Tourist Board for seven years in a row.

The cottage has also been certified as suitable for families and cyclist holidays. Cycle hire is available and there is storage too.

The village, Great Rissington, is at the centre of many scenic walks. Guide books are in the cottage. It's a great place to laze about in, a haven of tranquility, or as a touring base right in the middle of the Cotswolds, and then relax in the village pub in the evenings! The pub,...

Interaction with guests
I have an obsession about personal service, not just machines with endless tape recordings an options and waiting 20 minutes to be answered! I always make sure that I or my agents are available at the end of my mobile if needed. My motto is "personal holidays with personal service".

Was struggling to find an option at short notice but was very happy with this place. Well located on scenic road. Plenty of options within a short drive. Nice walks during the day. Well furnished internally. We had a great weekend. The only thing I would change is to please make the check out time later.

Absolutely love the house which is a historical home. It is very comfortable and rustic. I travelled with 3 elderly aunties and 2 cousins. There was a bedroom below so my aunts with weak knees slept down there. The staircase is a bit steep for them. The place was clean and extremely well-kept. There was a small nest of insects...

Gorgeous cottage, gorgeous location, perfect weekend for our family to get together! Warm, comfortable, decent size (there was 7 of us- all adults) and still with a super cottagey feel. Would 100% book with marksplaces.com again they were fab, thanks!

About the neighborhood
Great Rissington dates back to at least 1086, it still has a population of a couple of hundred. The church is over 900yrs old, the village pub and green are several hundred years old. There are very few modern buildings. It is a sleepy, friendly village that is off the beaten track, some residents have lived here their whole lives. No tourist coaches here, just country life. Yet just 5 miles away are the famous centres of Stow-on the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford. All postcard-picture villages with fascinating antiques shops and long histories.
