This luxury holiday cottage has all the makings for a relaxing break for two. Offering a treat with pretty fabrics and furnishings, original oak beams and gas fired burner to name a few.

The property lies on working farmland complete with farm shop selling fresh produce. Just half a mile away you will find good local shops and pubs in Welford-on-Avon. With the River Avon boarding the farmland, guests can benefit from private fishing rights or perhaps head to the nearby golfing range at Welford. For a relaxing day in the Cotswolds, the nearby beautiful Cotswold villages sit waiting to be discovered. Maybe enjoy a leisurely walk or hop on a bicycle to Shakespeare’s riverside town of Stratford-upon-Avon and ride along the towpath, stopping off for a bite to eat or a refreshing drink in one the many riverside pubs or cafes along the way. Whatever your interest, this is a superb location.

Arriving at the lovely farmhouse entrance door, you are invited into the cute hallway and downstairs WC, where you can conveniently store wet or muddy coats and wellies. Leading through to a beautiful spacious lounge/diner with beautiful high pitched ceilings, original oak beams and a prominent fireplace with gas-fired burner, inviting you to snuggle on the sofa by the fire with a captivating book or perhaps spoil yourself with a glass of wine or two. If you stay in for a meal, there is a fabulous fitted country kitchen with views out to the garden and bespoke oak cabinets that sit well with the oak dining table and chairs for two. Well-equipped including an electric oven with hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer and dishwasher to save washing the dishes. On the same floor, you will find a double bedroom with TV and ensuite bathroom with bath, shower cubicle, wash basin and WC.

Heading outside, you will find a lovely courtyard garden with a BBQ and furniture to ensure you are comfortable and relaxed while you dine out enjoying the peaceful farmland surroundings. A great deal of attention has gone into the privacy and comfort of this property.

Beautiful location. Cottage The Arbales had everything you needed and the owners Richard and his wife were very friendly and helpful. There are lots of different walks you can go on and the location is close to many places that you can visit if you have a car (30 miles) if we visit the way on we would stay back at this cottage.

Well-equipped and very clean cottage in a beautiful location. Stratford-upon-Avon is within walking distance (if fit). But also a good base for many other attractions in the area including the Cotswold. Would highly recommended.

Clean, comfortable and well presented with many extras included. Pretty village in ideal location for tourist attractions but still away from the Madden crowd.
