Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Yew Tree Cottage is a charming Cotswold stone period cottage, set in the beautiful village of Willersey which was the winner of the ‘Cotswold Life’ Village of the Year 2005 (click here to see more).Dating from approximately 1850, this is an ideal family retreat set behind a pretty front garden with mature trees and shrubs overlooking the attractive village green and duck pond. Mallards and their offspring can be seen waddling around the footpaths and settling in villagers’ gardens - a lovely sight.
Within a short stroll there are two local inns serving excellent food, a general store serving most needs including your daily newspaper and freshly baked bread and buns!
The cottage is within yards of open countryside and ideally placed to visit the surrounding Cotswold villages of Broadway (just over a mile away), Chipping Camden, Stow on the Wold and Stratford upon Avon (with the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre) is approximately 10 miles away. Artists, ramblers and cyclists will find plenty to see.
