Immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Cotswolds with a stay in this former coach house. Dating back to the 18th-century, the cottage has since been restored into a peaceful countryside retreat. Outside, you can enjoy uninterrupted views across the surrounding fields. There is a private garden and you can follow hiking trails straight from the door. Inside, there is a wood-burning fire, family-friendly rooms and plenty of space to cook, read and socialise. Your host can also provide children’s amenities and pets are welcome to join you for an additional fee. Beyond this hilltop home, the nearest amenities can be found in Gloucester and Cheltenham – both just a short drive away.
