Bridge Hill Cottage is an old property, located on a hill, which has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams and two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to exit the house quickly in the event of an emergency.

As noted above, we do not recommend bedroom 4 for young children, due to the absence of spindles between the hand rail and the stairs up to this room. For the same reason, parents should not leave young children unattended in the second living room.

The smoke detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.

No smoking is permitted throughout Bridge Hill Cottage.

Location description from owner

The England 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.

“A very lovely cottage”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2013

Really enjoyed the stay, very easy to find with the directions and house warm on arrival and well equipped. The owner also dropped round some logs for the fire for us in the evening as well. Also, a friendly pub round the corner which did great food & log fire.

“Cotswolds without tourist coaches”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

Bridge Hill cottage is a cosy, well-equipped cottage in the middle of a village with a very good village shop, and three pubs (though one is up for sale) and a brewery. It's very warm, well-equipped and would suit a family stay. The small garden is large enough to cook, sit out and eat in. We had a brilliant week leading up to Easter, and found we could visit all the major Cotswolds attractions without living in the middle of the tourist coaches that seem to arrive hourly in some of the other villages. Hooky seems like it's still a working village, though very friendly to visitors.

“Great family place”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2012

Excellent stay. Family reunion. Lots of food eaten. Cooker a bit of a challenge as I am used to AGA but that was my problem! Range of pots and pans etc good. Bar Billiards was a great hit. Everyone had a go. Nice village, friendly. Good shop. Would stay again.
