The cottage faces south, so you can enjoy the sun inside or out, in the intimacy of a pleasant garden, full of flowers and birds throughout the season.
It is comprehensively equipped to a high standard throughout, with many personal touches that give it a cosy feel. Curl up in front of the HD television with DVD player, listen to music on a good hi-fi, settle down with a good book from the bookshelves or rummage through the chest of games. Hand-made quilts and blankets will keep you snug, and there is plenty of wood available for the fireplace, to make it even cosier. In the kitchen, you will find everything you need for your stay, from the basics to small luxuries.
One floor up, you have two bedrooms (one king, one double) with very comfortable mattresses, thick duvets and postcard vistas of the village. You also have a modern bathroom with power shower and tub (note, all linen for bed and bathroom provided). The well-maintained garden offers a table and chairs for outdoor dining. If you want, a telephone and wireless broadband will help you stay in touch with the outside world.
You can get a good impression of what a stay at Rose Cottage feels like from our guests' descriptions of their own experience, in the Comments section below.
The cottage is nestled alongside a calm, narrow lane, surrounded by fine Cotswold cottages and gardens, a 2-minute stroll from the Horse and Groom. The pub serves delicious meals in a very nice decor, and has a large garden terrace for sunny weather. Publicans Simon and Sally will offer you a warm welcome.
Continue your walk through Upper Oddington, a 16th-century settlement tucked away from traffic and well preserved by the extensive conservation area that protects its many listed buildings and overall historical character. Strolling through the conservation area to Lower Oddington, you will find the Fox Inn, another highly-rated pub. Both the Fox and Horse and Groom benefit from an excellent reputation across the region and are recommended by the Good Pub Guide.
At the very end of Lower Oddington, you will discover St. Nicholas Church, an early Norman gem, well known for its large-scale medieval doom fresco. Another 20 minutes across the fields, or 5 minutes by car, will bring you to the award-winning Daylesford Farm Shop and Cafe.
For more general shopping, Stow-on-the-Wold is just 5 minutes away by car and 30' by foot. The highest and one of the most attractive market towns in the Cotswolds, Stow offers a wide variety of specialist shops and plenty of restaurants where you can relax over a drink or meal. You will also find a large grocery store for all your holiday provisions.
Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the Venice of the Cotswolds, and Moreton-in-Marsh are both 10 minutes away, the popular towns of Burford and Broadway are less than 20 minutes away, and it takes around 30 minutes to reach Blenheim Palace or the elegant horse racing centre of Cheltenham. Historic Oxford is an easy 45-minute drive away.
Rose Cottage is located towards the centre of the Cotswolds, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the largest in Britain, and as such makes a great base camp for walkers and cyclists alike, with plenty of maps and guides provided. You can follow footpaths starting right out of the front door, or short drives give easy access to the many other walks in the Area.
Welcome to Rose Cottage. During your stay, we trust that you will enjoy a peaceful retreat and a quintessential Cotswold experience.

Thank you for making time to post a review.
Jenny and I are delighted that you had such a good time at the cottage.
We also very much appreciate your feedback, and we've now fixed the 'dog proofing' in the garden.
I am sorry you didn't call us for the Internet… Whatever the problem was, we would have solved it very easily. The wifi has worked without fail for years – we use it each time we're at the cottage ourselves and we've never had any queries from any other guests. If you were to come back another time, please do not hesitate to ask for help.
