Further details indoors

Well Cottage is conveniently located within 2 minutes of the village within a quiet cul de sac with the river Windrush closing one end to traffic. The entrance to the cottage is through a small country garden or through the gate. There is a wide driveway for private off-street parking for one car. On entering the front door there is a small hall with authentic beamed ceilings and a door closing off the L shaped living room allowing privacy from the main front door. To the left of this hall is a newly renovated good sized bathroom roll top bath and complete with a large sized shower head and complete with a closed off washing machine. On entering the L shaped living room you will notice the flag stone flooring with Persian rugs and a wonderful original inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove as a focal point and English oak coffee table and English made sofa and wing back chairs in sumptuous fabrics. There are original beamed ceilings throughout the cottage both upstairs and downstairs. The dining area is furnished with antique chairs and table + Free Sat TV, and free Wi Fi.

Further details outdoors

Well Cottage has a wide single car driveway and has a seating area for 4 people. The garden and parking area is surrounded by locally build cotswold stone walls and within the garden is an original ancient Well surrounded by herbs and traditional cottage succession planting such as roses, Iris, lavender and peony to name a few! A pathway leads you to the original oak front door. A small Stone engraved carving encased in the front stone wall of the cottage is believed to be the Vicar of Le Salle from France, but we believe it to be the Patron Saint of Travel as there is a child being held on the shoulder of a man holding a staff crossing the river; this further adds to the authenticity of the building. Well Cottage is located within a conservation area of the village in a cull de sac closed at one end by the river Windrush, giving its location a further advantage as its quieter and less busy. By walking a true 2 minute distance from the cottage you are by the river walking along a picturesque 16th century pathway along the river and among the sights and sounds of the village such as the several ancient stone bridges giving you access to the lovely selection of gift shops, restaurants, coffee shops and convenience stores. For those who enjoy walking, there are numerous footpaths and bridleways to explore starting as close as twenty metres from the cottage.
