Cottage | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 2

Key Info
  • Great for children of all ages

  • Private garden
  • Car advised

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.

"Warm welcome in a freezing Spring"

I left a hot and steamy Brisbane and arrived at Heathrow on a cold, windy and frosty Monday morning. I froze waiting for the bus to take me to pick up a hire car. I froze while I waited for the car … More

Thanks for your feedback! It is a delightful cottage and we're delighted that you both loved the cottage and had a great time, even with the miserable weather. The village is so 'Cotswolds' for sure. Maybe if you come back from sunny Brisbane you can bring some sunshine next time!
Thank you again for the feedback

"Great location from which to explore the Cotswolds"

We found the cottage through Alastair Sawday's Special Places, and it certainly is a special place. Coming from Australia, we wanted somewhere that encapsulated the essence of the Cotswolds - and… More

"Just so romantic"

This is a perfect getaway (from London!) cottage. We went for our 20th anniversary and it was all we expected and more. Beautiful velvet sofas in front of a log burning stove and a hugely romantic bed… More
