Green Cottage is a substantial grade II listed cottage in one of the most sought after villages in the Cotswolds. Built in the 1600's as two labourers cottages, Green Cottage has been frequently extended in the 20th century to keep it upto date with modern living standards. The existing owners' contribution includes a stylish CP Hart bathroom. The property makes a perfect base for exploring the key towns and villages of the Cotswolds, or walking its hills and valleys. For celebration dinners or otherwise, the well known landmark, the Lamb Inn is within a stones throw of the cottage. For those wanting to enjoy alfresco dining amidst the delights of an English country garden, Green Cottage has a wonderful terrace on the edge of the Windrush Valley. If the days are cold and wet, go indoors, bake on the aga, enjoy a roaring fire in the lounge or toss a log on to the wood burner in the dining room. For the children there is plenty of space in the garden (and the house) for them to run around and indoors there is a full size bar football table and plenty of games. Whatever the season and weather Green Cottage has something special to offer. It comfortably sleeps 8.

The accommodation provides a great degree of flexibility. 3 bedrooms comprise of a family room and ensuite (sleeping up to 5); a twin room; a single room; a sofa bed in the sunroom and a camp bed that can be placed pretty much anywhere! It therefore comfortably sleeps 5-8.

Green Cottage is steeped in history. The original bread oven is still to be seen in the dining room. In 1914, Green Cottage was occupied by the Soul Family. Mrs Soul sent 5 sons to the First World War. It is said that Mrs Soul lit a candle each night in one window to guide her boys back but none ever returned. No British family lost more sons in the Great War. Great Rissington church contains pictures and details of the Soul brothers. There is also futher information in Green Cottage.

New for the 2013 season is an Everhot range cooker. Manufactured not far from Gloucester, this state of the art cooker provides a constant heat source together with three ovens, an induction hob as well as hotplates. It's perfect for hosting large parties or for those wanting to try out new cooking experiences. In addition, in the large garden to help energetic children (and Dads) run off their energy and develop silky football skills, a Samba 12ft x 6ft goal has been set don't forget your football!

The Cotswolds region

Great Rissington is in the heart of the cotswolds located neatly between the three jewels of the Cotswolds, namely Stow on the Wold, Bourton on Water and Burford. There is so much to do and see. There's The Slaughters, Bourton on Water (Maze, Birdland, Model Village, Car Museum), Barringtons (Annual Gifford Circus), Batsford Arboretum, Cotswold Farm Park, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Bibury (Trout Farm). Or easy day trips to Oxford, Bristol, Bath, Stratford, Cheltenham (races), Warwick Castle, not forgetting the huge amount of Roman history in the area. Or perhaps old houses are your interest. There's Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle to name just a couple.

Great Rissington

If you don't want to sightsee, the countryside lends itself to lots of wonderful walking - it's a great way to see and appreciate the Cotswold landscape and you can walk right from the front door of the cottage - no need to get in the car!

We also have The Lamb Inn just a few doors away, which has a restaurant so if you book a meal, there is no need to worry about having a drink, as you only have to walk home!
