From the manager

Meadow View is an immaculately decorated and maintained, bright and airy cottage, with lots of pretty windows affording views on all sides, sweeping across the Williamstrip and Hatherop Estates - acres of meadow, parkland, and farmland - and the undulating Coln Valley and rushing waters of the River Coln.

Step out of the front door and you’re straight into miles and miles of walking, including an idyllic 4- or 6-mile route to Bibury (famed for its Arlington Row cottages, possibly the most photographed tourist location in the Cotswolds!), where you can have a bite to eat at The Swan, The Catherine Wheel or in the café at Bibury Trout Farm.

Ground Floor

Entrance Hall:

Step into a brightly lit hallway with coat hooks and a large coir mat for muddy footwear, leading to stairs with handrail to first floor and entrance to dining area/kitchen.

Dining Room:

Leading through from the hallway is the open plan dining room/kitchen with oak dining table, to seat 6 comfortably (plus a highchair), and matching side board. Bright and airy, with accents of yellow throughout and windows to the front, rear and side of the property, this is a fantastic entertaining space. Separating the dining area from the kitchen is a wide breakfast bar with 2 bar stools on the dining side, while concealing cupboards and the built-in fridge and freezer on the kitchen side. (Please note: food items in the photographs are for illustration purposes only).


The immaculate light-oak laminate worktops and white cupboards are offset with lichen-green wall tiles and wooden flooring. The double sink overlooks the back garden and the tall trees of Williamstrip Estate. You’ll find all you need here for a self-catered stay at Meadow View, including a spotless electric hob and oven, dishwasher, microwave, integrated fridge/freezer, matching De’Longhi toaster and kettle, and all the essential crockery, glassware, and cooking utensils.

In the kitchen, in the under-stairs cupboard you will find a foldable highchair with table, a SpaceCot travel cot, Shark upright vacuum, brush, mop and bucket.

The Living Room:

The relaxing and calming cream-coloured living room, with accents of yellow, has views to the cottage’s front and rear gardens. Seating six guests on a very comfy sink-in corner sofa and armchair, the room is set up for viewing the TV or enjoying a game and a chat. You’ll also find a light oak coffee table, occasional table with lamp, BT router, LG TV and dimmable lighting to create a cosy ambiance. French windows lead directly out to the patio area and garden, making this room an easy walk through from the kitchen for setting up an al fresco meal.


Dual-flush toilet with handbasin, mirror and handy under sink cupboard (for guests sleeping in Bedroom 3).

Side door:

Exit this door to access bins and side entrance through a wooden gate to the back garden.

Bedroom Three:

This downstairs double bedroom, looking out onto the side garden, is ideal for guests who find stairs difficult or for anyone who might like a little independence from the rest of the group. With a snug double bed set with crisp linens, a fluffy duvet and country-inspired embroidered curtains and cushions, Bedroom 3 is a retreat within a retreat. (Note: a built-in cupboard is not shown but is provided).

First Floor

Bedroom One:

Overlooking the front of the house is the king-size, master bedroom, with its relaxing tonal hues and moss green accent. The light-oak bedframe is complemented by an oak headboard, large, 3-door wardrobe, bedside chest of drawers and lamps, and a dressing table (with hairdryer), stool and mirror. In addition, the room has dimmable lighting, a long mirror, and plenty of space for a baby’s travel cot.

Bedroom Two:

A pretty and bright, dual-aspect twin bedroom with beautiful views over the cottage’s front and rear gardens and out towards the wider Cotswold countryside. This twin room has two sink-in single beds, a large, 2-door, oak wardrobe and an oak dressing table with stool and mirror.

Family Bathroom:

Polished limestone tiling, wood-effect flooring, and a window to the rear (with Venetian-style blind for privacy) create a spa-like space to relax in. With a large, walk-in Grohe shower, full-size bath with mixer taps, heated towel rail, a sink with large mirror and dual-flush toilet, plus a small selection of toiletries.


Meadow View is framed by a lawn area to its front and a large private garden to its rear, affording it a wonderful feeling of privacy. A wooden fence separates Meadow View from the neighbouring property. It’s in the back garden where the cottages’ magic really comes alive, thanks to the meadow of the adjoining Williamstrip Park. The cottage has patio area outside the dining room’s French windows, with BBQ and garden table and chairs for 6, making it perfect for al fresco dining and relaxing after a day exploring the Cotswolds. Next to the patio area is a useful garden storeroom.
