Experience all the charm of the Cotswolds in this historic cottage. Its thatched roof, honey-hued stone, and leaded windows are straight from a fairy tale. Step inside, however, and you'll find a few modern surprises. A sleek extension houses the contemporary kitchen-diner, offering a pretty view of the garden through its large windows. But if you're missing that quintessential character, the living area has it in spades – with the fire roaring in the stone hearth, it's the definition of cosy. Locaton-wise, Burford is just a short drive away, while local favourites like Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, and Blenheim Palace are also within easy reach.

Home truths

    Given that this is a period cottage, expect steep, narrow stairs and low beams. It may not suit those with limited mobility, though the third bedroom and shower room are on the ground floor.

    This used to be two separate homes, so the layout is a tad unusual.

    If you're travelling with little ones, your host can provide a travel cot and high chair on request. You'll need to bring your own cot linen.

    The double bed is accessed from one side.

    Your host provides an initial supply of wood for the fire between 1st October and 31st March.

    Please note that wi-fi is not available in the kitchen or dining area.

    There's space for one compact car in the small driveway. Further on-street parking is available outside the cottage.
