Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2
Dating back over 400 years this thatched treat is steeped in history - legend has it that this was once home a particularly tall shepherd which explains the higher than normal ceilings.
Internally the property has been carefully, painstakingly and lovingly restored to provide a very high standard of self catering accommodation, with countless Cotswold charms such as original oak beams, flagstone floors and an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove.
The property also enjoys many contemporary touches with quality bed and bedding and a sumptuous bathroom which altogether create a real sense of luxury. Externally, the cottage has a delightful and very private garden with superb, far reaching views across Cotswold countryside with the source of the River Thames just a reasonable walk away.
Altogether a fairytale cottage; this is one to savour for a very special occasion. We recommend this property, thoroughly.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds are one of the most ‘quintessential English’ regions in the UK.
It is officially designated as the country’s largest ‘areas of outstanding natural beauty’.
Although there are no pubs in the village there are many nearby, some within a reasonable walk.
Famous for its hillsides, river valley’s and Cotswold Stone Villages, the Cotswolds hold a wealth of history, stunning scenery, fine dining and many varieties of activities for all age levels.
Tarlton is a delightful village situated mid way (approximately) between the two attractive Cotswold towns of Tetbury and Cirencester.
For the antique hunter, Tetbury is a treasure trove with an excellent selection of shops plus cafes, pubs and restaurants to choose from. Slightly further afield, but certainly within an hour is Bath and its stunning attractions.
In terms of attractions there are many nearby, but of particular note is the Westonbirt Arboretum. Beyond are a wealth of Cotswold villages including Burford, Bibury, Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water.
