Dating back to 1624 and immaculately restored this beautiful little one bedroom designer cottage oozes character. With its own large garden and country views it is located in the peaceful village of Tarlton whilst being close to chic Cirencester and Prince Charles' Tetbury.

The owners, an art advisor and writer, have taken great care in creating a unique interior of great style in a restoration of the highest quality. All the original features have been retained with natural floors, beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace. There are velvet sofas, beautiful oriental carpets, fine art and classic books. Lighting is discrete and atmospheric whilst a log stove provides a delightful atmosphere.Create a meal in the hand-made kitchen before dining on the farmhouse table using vintage china, silver-plate cutlery and crystal glasses. The bathroom features a Venetian mirror, deep-pile towels, complimentary Molton Brown toiletries and a free-standing bath (heaps of hot water) with country views.

The latest in LED televisions, with freeview and Apple TV, is located upstairs in the bedroom (not available downstairs) together with a DVD player and varied films. There is unlimited free wi-fi. Off street parking for two cars. This romantic thatched cottage is named after a pretty plant of the lily family, long beloved of writers and poets and symbolic of longing and desire.

In this idyllic rural spot Asphodel Cottage is a perfect retreat to get-away from it all. Changeover days are usually Monday and Friday but other days may be considered upon request. Weekends 3 days minimum, weekday stays 4 days minimum.
