This is a beautiful house, big kitchen and lovely lounge with a fire place. It has 5 bedrooms; 3 on one side of the house with a bathroom (with a bath) and 2 up a different flight of stairs with a shower and loo. There is no toilet downstairs which is a slight pain or even a 3rd toilet so...

I booked this house for a hen weekend and it was perfect. Lovely setting and wonderful garden. We had everything we needed and the owner was most welcoming. I would definitely recommend for a large group or family getaway.

About the neighborhood
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.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
