Great location, lovely cottage for 2 with eye for detail, shower in bath (not so comfortable for larger people), warm and cosy, good night sleep guaranteed. Mind the low doors and beams and steap stair. Pets welcome (supplement charge), wide views from rear garden. Even in cold and wet January a beautiful setting. Nice pubs with good food near by...

Excellent welcome and facilities, in a thatched cottage within easy reach of Cirencester and the Cotswolds; footpaths nearby with fascinating canal tunnel and Roman building remains in a local field. Would have appreciated better lighting in lounge for evening reading and some comfortable seating for watching T.V. in the bedroom.

Getting around
All but the most determined will need their own car. Kemble station is about 2 miles away and taxis are available. There are however no facilities or shops in the village.
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Heathrow: 74.6 mi
Railway: Kemble: 1.9 mi
Address 49, Tarlton, Glos GL7 6PA (no street name).

Tip: On satnavs just enter 'Tarlton' rather than the post code, which take you down the wrong road.

From London take the M4 to exit 15 (69 miles from Chiswick). Take the A419 north to Badbury dual carriageway exit and still following A419 around Cirencester taking you to the A433 for Tetbury. Follow this for about two miles until you pass under a narrow railway bridge and the adjacent Thames Head Pub. Turn right after 300 yards for Tarlton. On entering the village there is a small green with a red phone box. Follow the road to the left. Asphodel Cottage is the fourth house on the left.

From the North coming on M5 leave at junction 11a on the A417 to Cirencester. After 15 miles at Cirencester follow the bypass for Chippenham &am...
