The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides”.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century.

The Cotswolds is the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales. Whilst the beauty of the Cotswold AONB is intertwined with the villages that seem to almost grow out of the landscape, the Cotswolds were primarily designated as an AONB for the rare limestone grassland habitats as well as the old growth beech woodlands that typify the area. These habitat areas are also the last refuge for many other flora and fauna with some so endangered they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. The uniqueness and value of the Cotswolds is engendered in the fact that five European Special Areas of Conservation, three National Nature Reserves and over 80 Sites of Special Scientific Interest are contained within the Cotswold AONB.

Fossebridge is a small hamlet, situated on the historic Fosse Way, a Roman road running all the way from Exeter to Lincoln. The location is perfect for exploring the entire Cotswold area and beyond, being eight miles north of Cirencester and 11 miles south of Stow-on-the-Wold.

The area around Fossebridge showcases rural England at its very best, with many beautiful walks right on the doorstep, in particular through the stunning Coln Valley.

Fossebridge

Food & drink:

Lakeside House benefits from being located in the beautiful grounds of the Inn at Fossebridge, providing guests with access to all the Inn’s facilities, including its excellent eating and drinking options.

The Inn’s traditional Cotswold bar and integral restaurant are located in the oldest part of the building and are a wonderful retreat, rustic and cosy, with flagstone floors, beamed ceilings, two open log fires, a log burning stove and mellow Cotswold stone walls.

In the spring and summer months the four acres of gardens around the lake offer a wonderful spot to enjoy a drink or two, lunch on a sunny afternoon or dinner on a balmy evening.

The Inn also has two adjoining Georgian dining rooms, overlooking the gardens and lake, which offer private dining facilities, as well as facilities for larger parties.

The Inn is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are different menus for lunch and dinner, as well as a Sunday lunch menu that changes weekly and separate children’s menus.

“Fabulous place to stay - very well equipped and welcoming”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2013

The cottage is extremely well equipped for a holiday let and the provision of wifi and satellite tv kept both the kids and sports fans happy! The location is wonderful - my children loved being able to play in the grounds of the pub and it was perfect for BBQ's outside. The pub does very nice food so we went over there a few nights when we didn't feel like cooking. We had a couple of minor issues with the appliances, and the owners had them fixed same day - we were very impressed. will definitely stay here again as there were a lot of local attractions that we didn't make it to on our first visit.

“Fantastic”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

We had an absolutely fabulous stay at the property. We go away for 2 weekends each year and i can honestly say this is the best accomadation we have stayed in to date. The house was well equipped with everything we needed and we were able to cook a full Xmas dinner with no problems. One small suggestion for you if i may ...a pathway which is not grassed is needed from the car park to the front door . The weather was very wet and the grass became extremely muddy and churned up so we had to walk down the slope and back up tp get to the door without slipping.. I had a stress fracture in my foot so i had to be especially careful . This is not mentioned as a moan only a suggestion to avoid any trips or falls for any future guests. I have no doubt we will be booking this house again at some point as we loved it ( the hens outside were adorable and so friendly) Look forward to doing business with you again soon

“cosy, comfortable, spacious, excellent location”

Reviewed 6 Jan 2012

Lakeside House was beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for more from the location, the cottage itself, and all the facilities provided. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and it was lovely being able to enjoy the privacy of a cottage along with the option of a good pub lunch or social drink on our doorstep at the lovey Inn at Fossebridge. The cottage was well equipped and perfect for our requirements. The children loved being able to feed the ducks and rabbits just outside, and there's nothing more relaxing than listening to the sound of the water outside while in bed in the morning. We will definitely be back and recommend this to any family looking for somewhere to get away for a few days.
