Beehive Cottage is a quintessential Cotswold stone cottage, which is beautifully presented and is located in the small, picturesque village of Poulton, close to Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds. Although small, Poulton has a well-regarded pub, a village shop and Post Office, and there is a children's playground and playing field directly across the lane from the cottage.

I booked Beehive Cottage for my sister's hen weekend - we were seeking a relaxing break somewhere picturesque and that's what we got! The cottage is decorated with lots of creative touches - we particularly loved the paintings of little bees, butterflies and birds around the doorways and windows. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the two bathrooms are modern...

About the neighborhood
The Cotswold village of Poulton is situated mid-way between Cirencester and Fairford. The village is mentioned in the Doomsday Book, under the record of Poltone in Wiltshire. It remained an exclave of Wiltshire, encircled by Gloucestershire for almost 1,000 years until 1844, when it was designated by Parliament as part of Gloucestershire.

Poulton boasts some magnificent architecture, with both the old school and the church being designed by William Butterfield, one of the most eminent Victorian architects.

Poulton today is a thriving community with a well-regarded Inn, Village Shop and Post Office, Church and Village Hall. There is also a playing field and children's playground.


The attractive market town of Cirencester is the largest town in the Cotswold Distr...
