Description

Simple, old-fashioned and cosy with glorious views, and walks from the door to pubs and pristine woodland... balm for a city-dweller's soul, this is the ultimate in romantic hideaway cottages.
Westley Farm is a 200-year old farmstead set high on a clearing above the ancient woodland of the Chalford Valley. The views are splendid in any weather and the wildlife is abundant. Jackdaw cottage lies 400 meters from the farmhouse down a farm track and from here you can see across the meadow to the Cotswold village of Oakridge on the other side of the valley.
The small paved yard at the front of the cottage, enclosed by a Cotswold dry-stone wall, and the stable door betray that it was formerly an old stone cattle shed, lovingly restored by Julian.
You walk in to a cosy living-dining room and small wood-burner beyond. Flagstones shine, woodwork is polished or painted, and marble worktops, well-worn sofas and appliances shun modernity (bring coins for the electric meter!). Two simple

You walk in to a cosy living-dining room and small wood-burner beyond. Flagstones shine, woodwork is polished or painted, and marble worktops, well-worn sofas and appliances shun modernity (bring coins for the electric meter!). Two simple country bedrooms and a bathroom are comfortable and traditional.
You are close to so much here, yet feel blissfully tucked away. Visitors are more likely to be foxes and deer (or an occasional cow) than human beings.
Stroll down to the canal, across the strangely sloping Jackdaw Bridge, look for rare orchids, watch buzzards soar high above; only the whistle of the occasional steam train disturbs the peace. This is the sort of place Laurie Lee would have felt completely at home in.
Dogs are welcome, too.

Location description from owner

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful areas of England, known and loved by people across the world. The largest of 38 Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales, it has a warmth and an atmosphere of creativity. With stone walls and buildings, open skies, rolling grasslands, beech woods and captivating villages, this is an outstanding English landscape - a landscape once experienced, never forgotten.

Chalford

Jackdaw cottage looks out across the Golden Valley. The legacy of the valley's industrial past can be seen in the romantic overgrown canal, ivy-clad mill ruins and weavers' cottages; some beautifully restored by the Arts & Crafts movement. These valleys still attract artists and craftsmen with thriving workshops, studios, micro-breweries and cheese-makers to visit or see their products at the award-winning local farmers markets.
Our traditional stone cottages are spread over the farm and have rural views as good as any in England. You can just hear the distant bells of Oakridge church and see the houses peep out of the canopy of trees on the other side of the valley.
At Westley Farm we value our natural environment and manage the land sensitively to encourage wildlife habitats. You may see buzzards, badgers, foxes, deer as well as sheep and cattle from your windows. With a choice of good pubs within easy walking distance, space to dry any wet gear and a log fire to come home to, we are the perfect base for a holiday exploring the excellent walking on and around the farm.

Cirencester

Situated mid-way along the southern fringe of the Cotswolds, Cirencester is a bustling market town off the A417/419 between Swindon and Gloucester. The train station of Kemble is about 4 miles (6 km) to the west. Cirencester is home to the Corinium Museum, which contains a superb collection of Saxon and Roman artefacts from the region. Local attractions include Cirencester Park, Cerney Park Gardens, Rodmarton Manor and Chedworth Roman Villa. The villages and towns of Tetbury, Bibury and Northleach are within easy distance.

Stroud

Stroud lies on the western edge of the region, just east of the M5, at the heart of what is often referred to as the 'Undiscovered Cotswolds'. Villages such as Painswick cling to steep-sided valleys, old woollen mills can be found alongside the streams, and commons stretch across the hilltops at Minchinhampton and Selsley. Nearby Slad was the setting for the author and poet Laurie Lee's book 'Cider with Rosie'. The Cotswold Way passes through the area, and it is possible to walk along the Stroudwater Canal. Woodchester Mansion, Owlpen Manor, Painswick Rococo Garden and Misarden Park Gardens are all within easy reach of Stroud. The town is served by trains from London Paddington.
