About this location

The Gloucestershire region

The Cotsowld Hills are famous worldwide as capturing the essence of English country scenes.

Gentle hills and numerous villages, 100s of years old, built of warm stone, with friendly pubs tea rooms and antique shops, capture the atmosphere.

Gentle country walks or strenuous hikes, riding, touring to see the villages and numerous stately homes are all part of the scene.

In summer beautiful rolling fields stretch out, in winter cozy log and cola fires burn everywhere whilst the countryside is wrapped in gentle mist.

Great Rissington

Great Rissington dates back to at least 1086, it still has a population of a couple of hundred.

The church is over 900yrs old, the village pub and green are several hundred years old. There are very few modern buildings. It is a sleepy, friendly village that is off the beaten track, some residents have lived here their whole lives. No tourist coaches here, just country life.

Yet just 5 miles away are the famous centres of Stow-on the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford. All postcard-picture villages with fascinating antiques shops and long histories.

"Beautiful cottage, great location!"

I stayed at the cottage for a weekend with a group of friends for a wedding and it was perfect! Beautifully decorated, comfortable, with everything we needed. Lovely location with a great pub a few minutes walk away. Great price too, would definitely recommend. Just wish we could have stayed longer!

Easterleigh Cottage is fabulous. A comfortable, very well equipped Cotswold stone cottage in a charming village near Bourton on the Water. Our family went for a short break - primarily to enjoy some peace and quiet and quality time together with our new baby. The cottage had everything we needed. It was very convenient to have two bathrooms, plus an additional toilet/shower downstairs. The local pub serves very good food - we ate there once - but most of the time we ate happily at the cottage, which has a full range of cooking equipment etc., plus the facility to eat outdoors in fine weather. The cottage was clean throughout and felt like home. There are plenty of walks nearby and numerous villages and places to explore. The owners provide comprehensive information on how to use all the household equipment and they recommend several local walks and places to visit. Easterleigh provides a welcome break away from the hustle and bustle of city life but, with a car, is within easy reach of all facilities. The lack of any shop in the village was not a problem - we loved it and were sorry to leave. The owner responded to our initial enquiry very quickly and all communication with him and his local agent went without a hitch. We hope to return.

"Idyllic, spacious, beautiful & practical Cotswolds cottage"

We stayed at Easterleigh for a long family girly weekend at the beginning of July. We had an absolutely lovely time - the cottage was perfect and even despite a little bit of rain, we made use of the lovely garden and outside space.

The photos really don't do enough justice to how spacious the cottage is - I'd envisaged it would be a bit more cosy inside, and whilst in the evening it really is lovely and cosy, during the day when warm outside, it isn't stuffy due to the space.

The kitchen is very practical and has everything you'd need for a weekend or longer stay.

Plenty of bathroom facilities for 7 guests and delightfully decorated to feel like a home away from home.

It's really lovely and quiet in the local area, and 15 mins drive in either direction to neighbouring lovely towns of Burford or Bourton on the Water.

We all came away wanting to club together and buy the property for our country retreat!

"It was everything we could have wished for."

The cottage was excellent, well furnished and with lots of little touches, and was very clean..The furniture was comfortable , as were the beds. Beautiful bed linen. We particularly enjoyed eating outside on the garden dining suite. The garden was good, and had plenty of enclosed space for children to play safely. The cottage is in a very peaceful village, which has a good atmosphere, and is situated within walking distance of a pub which serves good ales and food.
Altogether, we all agreed it was the best cottage we have stayed in, and we go to a cottage every year for more than ten years. at least. Thank you, we may go back!

Wow, couldn't ask for better!
