House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Roost is a classic Grade II period cottage, set in the heart of Coln St Aldwyns, an area designated for its outstanding natural beauty and recently voted the seventh most desirable village in the UK. Beautifully restored, the cottage's picture box exterior hides a wealth of character features within. Flagstone floors, oak beams and character combine to make this a quintessentially Cotswolds experience. Built in the sixteenth century as a stable, The Roost has been refurbished to exacting standards. The Roost was built in the sixteenth century and despite extensive refurbishment, retains many features of a classic Cotswolds cottage: walls are not straight, ceilings are cottage-height, and the staircase is winding!! Outside, there are views over rolling meadowland, and a wealth of countryside to hike or amble through. If you prefer to laze, the village offers a fine hostelry and a village shop with weekend essentials such as a Telegraph and fresh pastries.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
Coln St Aldwyns is an exceptionally attractive Cotswold village located approximately half way between Burford and Cirencester, just on the edge of what we like to call the 'central Cotswolds'! The village has wonderful architecture with countless classic Cotswold cottages and some more regal homes in between. There is an excellent and well respected local pub within a minutes' walk of the cottage front door (The New Inn) plus there is a well stocked local shop supplying basic goods from local suppliers.
You can fish at Coln St Aldwyns, where there is some exceptional fishing on the beautiful River Coln moments from the front door and in beautiful countryside. Day Tickets cost £65.00 with the limit at 3 Rods Per Day. Further details on request, but booking in advance is advised.
Within a 5 min drive is the famous village of Bibury described as one England's finest villages, including the National Trust owned Arlington Row. From the cottage there are countless walks into the countryside, including one along the Coln Valley to Bibury. Slightly further afield are Burford and Cirencester with many attractions and restaurants to choose from. For the more determined you can travel to Bath within 1 hour 30mins, alternatively why not try Cheltenham or Oxford within 30/45 mins comfortably. A great location for sure!
