The Mere Coach House
House | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Situated at the end of a long, private drive MERE COACH HOUSE is a spacious FOUR BEDROOM & FOUR BATHROOM holiday cottage situated on the edge of the Fairford, a sleepy market town on the edge of the Cotswolds. Inside the house has large entertaining rooms, with the kitchen / diner a real eye catcher - particularly the views towards 'your land' from the glass doors that spread right across the room. Perhaps the biggest appeal for us when we (Manor Cottages) inspected this were the four bedrooms with their own ensuites - making this absolutely perfect for groups / couples as well as families.
Fairford is more a village than town (in our opinion) but it still has a selection of pubs and restaurants plus a few take aways and basic shops. Within an easy drive is CIRENCESTER and BURFORD plus a wide array of beautiful villages. Fairford is also quite easy to reach from the M4
There is little not to like in this house, so we're quite certain you will have a fabulous and memorable holiday here. Just perfect!

The Central England/Cotswolds region
Welcome to the Manor Cottages Holiday Guide. We are privileged to cover some of England's finest countryside and locations and with so much to do while here, we wanted to take the opportunity to give you some basic information about the region and also some tips on what to do. Naturally there is much, much more to see and enjoy than we could possibly fit in here, but hopefully this will give you a flavour!
For us a Cotswolds holiday cottage is about as traditional a cottage holiday as one could imagine or wish for. Although we are biased (as you'd expect) the honey coloured Cotswolds' cottages, the drystone walls, the rolling countryside, local pubs and inns and friendly locals together make the region one of the most idyllic in both the United Kingdom but also the world! Taking a Cotswolds holiday with Manor Cottages is likely to include the opportunity to visit famous cities such as Bath or Oxford along with many attractive towns like Cheltenham or Stratford upon Avon. And of course there are literally hundreds of picturesque villages from places like Burford, to Bibury to Castle Combe and Chipping Campden. Don't just take our word for it, look at our cottages and see for yourself, we really do have a cottage for everyone!
The 'Drystone walls' are a particular feature of the Cotswolds, scattered everywhere in the fields of the region. it is believed that many of these were built in the 18th and 19th centuries, a matter of considerable skill as there is no cement to hold the walls together. They represent an important historical landscape and a major conservation feature – and are of course still used by farmers to enclose sheep and cattle.During the 13-15th centuries, the medieval period, the native Cotswold sheep were famous throughout Europe for their heavy fleeces and high quality of wool. Cotswold wool commanded a high price and the wealth generated by the wool trade enabled wealthy traders to leave their mark by building fine houses and wonderful churches, known as “wool churches”. Even today, the sight of sheep on the hillside is still one of the classic Cotswold images.
From our perspective, we are fortunate enough to have visited most villages across the Cotswolds. However, not all are well known, and today many still hold their secrets - examples such Naunton, Combe, or Winson are stunning but off the beaten track. Even the likes of Painswick, Biddestone or Winchcombe are have fabulous treats for those prepared to make more of their Cotswolds holiday. As we always say, if you're not sure ask the team where to go, we know this stunning region very well and believe that if you come once, you'll return and find something new each time! Well, we would say that wouldn't we!!
