This opens onto the lounge which has been finished with a clever mix of both old and new, sink back into the colourful sofas and enjoy the warmth of the wood burner whilst relaxing with friends, or enjoy an evening with an old movie. The kitchen/diner has been finished with panelled walls and light colours, a great space for any enthusiastic cook and well-equipped with electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. A rustic table and chairs enjoy a position by the window. When the day is done you will find a king-size bedroom on the ground floor, beautifully finished with soft linen and vibrant colours. There is also a shower room on the ground floor with double walk in rain shower and WC. Climb the stairs to find a further king-size bedroom, set within the eaves, where you can enjoy a peaceful night’s rest within the luxury of soft linen. For pampering there is a large bathroom where you can soak in the free-standing bath, there is also a WC.

Undoubtedly the best holiday property and warmest welcome we have encountered. Tastefully renovated to the highest standard. Lavishly equipped. Superb comfort and indulgent toiletries. We loved it. A perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds, the only downside is leaving.
