About the home
Wilton Cottage is a thoroughly traditional Cotswold Cottage, situated in a beautiful and very attractive location overlooking the River Coln. Located on a quiet lane within the village of Ablington and surrounded by some of the Cotswolds' finest scenery this lovely holiday cottage offers a truly classic experience, with an open fire, mullion windows and many more traditional features. Internally the cottage has a cosy and welcoming feel, particularly in the open plan ground floor, where the open fire certainly adds to the atmosphere. The cottage has a garden to the side and rear (*see below) and of particular appeal is a little bench at the front of the house which is simply perfect for enjoying the surroundings.
As you would expect there is a lovely view towards the river and fields beyond. The village of Ablington is located a mile from Bibury and its traditional pubs, which is considered one of the most attractive villages in the Cotswolds, and also a short drive from Cirencester and its many shops. This is a lovely cottage, in an 'unrivalled' position and a great choice for friends and family alike to enjoy.
