    Hidden Acre Hut is a light, spacious Shepherd's Hut, nestled above the village of Ablington near Bibury in the heart of the Cotswolds. Guests can expect a luxurious kingsize bed; an equipped kitchen with all the usual modern facilities eg. coffee machine; an ensuite bathroom with large shower; a TV/DVD player, and a plethora of DVDs and books to borrow. Enjoy breakfast on the decking, looking over your private garden, or relax with a drink in the hot tub with views of the valley below
    Anyone who has stayed in a Shepherd's Hut before will understand why it is such a popular concept - imagine your own private (luxury) cabin, equipped with all the mod-cons you need for modern day living, tucked into the hillside in one of the world's most famously beautiful locations. Situated in the neighbouring village to Bibury (a landmark tourist hotspot, renowned for offering a truly quintessential-Cotswold experience), a short drive away from multiple gastro-pubs and minutes away from some of the area's most lusted-after wedding venues, is a little piece of quiet paradise. Switch off your phones (the signal isn't very strong anyway due to our rural location), help yourself to a drink from one of the decanters, and lie back in the wood-fired hot tub, relaxing to the sound of horses in the neighbouring fields and birds coming into roost overhead. Whether you are looking for a romantic get-away, accommodation for a friend's wedding, or a base from which to explore the many treasures of the Cotswolds, we aim to give you a private, comfortable, home-away-from-home that you can enjoy whatever the weather.
  • One of the most relaxing weekend away we’ve ever done. Highly recommended.

    David2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • The hut more than lived up to expectations, it was just what was needed to recharge the batteries! Everything that you may need was provided and the place was spotless...we will definitely be back!

    Michael2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This space is perfect. Everything you could wish for and all in the idyllic, beautiful countryside! The hut itself was warm, spotless and wonderfully kitted out. Polly was fantastic and set everything up ready for our arrival - including the amazing hot tub! The little extras such as gin,whiskey, juice, milk and croissants were really thoughtful! Unfortunately, the weather was horrendous during our stay which meant that we couldn’t make use of the hot tub ourselves but I’m sure that in the summer months it would be an absolute hit! Overall, a wonderful place to stay! Would definitely recommend and will certainly be returning in the future!

    Lisa2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • Such a luxurious stay! Very high spec furnishings. The provided gin, tonic and ice cubes are the cherry on top! Nice bathroom, lovely shower. Really enjoyed the hot tub. Our fire management skills took some practise but we got there. Very quiet and private. We didn't leave the site all weekend, either in the hot tub, playing board games at the table or making use of the fab kitchen facilities. Even in a windy December the hut is warm and cozy and the dash to the hot tub isn't too far. Would highly recommend.

    Becca2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect weekend in an idyllic location! Everything was clean in the hut which was was very cute and cleverly designed. We enjoyed the hot tub - even in November! Great location for exploring the beautiful local villages of the Cotswolds. Thank Polly and George for a lovely stay!

    Lucy2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • 10/10 would stay again. The cabin was very well laid out with an excellent finish. Everything was clean and in good working order, even the hot tub was warm!

    Sam2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • A very relaxing get away from jobs and other boring responsibilities. Everything you need in an organised space, which is bigger than we imagined. Also, it was lovely to have a proper shower whilst 'glamping'. Unfortunately, we didn't make much use of the hot tub with it getting early dark and seemed too much effort at times.

    Ellen2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wonderful few days at this hut. Great location, beautiful accommodation, Polly and George couldn't do enough for us. So peaceful and secluded and plenty to do and see in local villages. Perfect Cotswolds getaway and hope to be back very soon! T & S x

  • The cottage was spotless and seems new,location to the village was convenient. The closest grocery is about 15-20 minutes away so stock up before you get there especially if you plan to eat at home sometime.Kitchen was well equipped. Very nice and cosy for a couple.

    Nishant2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • To call this place outstanding would be underselling what my experience was. The cottage was more than comfortable, we immediately started referring it to home. Immaculately clean with nice touches like the towel warmer, a comfortable, a true Queen sized bed that was comfortable beyond expectation and a very simple check in process. This was way beyond expectations and nothing I would ask to be modified. In the village it was conveniently located steps from The Swan which provides a great location for pints, breakfast, dinner, whatever was needed that day. I had considered staying at The Swan and fortunately didn't as it would have been a mistake to miss out on this cottage. If you are out of country looking at this location (I am from Canada) do not hesitate to jump right in and book. It will meet your expectations and more. Personally I hope to get the opportunity to stay again.

  • What a lovely house, in a beautiful town. Has all the modern amenities, with all the charm of an old house. The host had a Christmas tree and other decorations set up in the house - we really appreciated that effort. Everything was perfect. Wifi is slow, and cell phones are spotty, but that's something out of the owner's control, and it was nice to be a little out of touch with things.

    Willow Cottage is one of a short row of cottages located on a quiet lane, surrounded by lovely countryside. The front door opens into a small porch area, with the following rooms on the ground floor: Living room: This large room has been beautifully furnished, with stylish sofas and chairs complemented by various antique pieces, plus a feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove and alcove book cases on either side. There is a three-seater sofa, two matching arm chairs and a leather wingback arm chair, plus a 60" Smart cinema TV, with Apple TV box and Roku streaming for Amazon Prime, as well as a Sonos surround sound system; Kitchen/dining room: Steps lead up from the living room into the stylish kitchen, which contains a two-oven electric Rangemaster with a grill and six ring electric hob, a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, Kitchen Aid and Nespresso coffee machine (pods not included). There is a large wooden dining table in the centre of the room, which comfortably seats four, and a lovely Welsh dresser. The kitchen looks out over the back garden and has a door leading outside; Utility room: Accessed from the kitchen, this convenient room contains a microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, food mixer and juicer; Stairs lead up from the kitchen to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master Bedroom: Steps lead up to this stylish room, which overlooks the garden, and contains a king size bed. There is a large, elegant ensuite bathroom, which contains a bath with an overhead shower, toilet, wash basin and dressing table; Bedroom 2: Another luxurious room, with exposed beams, a window seat and a king-size bed; Family bathroom: A pretty room that contains a bath with overhead shower, wash basin and toilet. The back door leads out into the well-established garden, where stone steps lead up to a patio area with a table and seating for four. Further steps lead up to an expansive lawned area, with lovely views over the cottage to the the rolling countryside beyond. At the front of the cottage is a small garden with a wooden bench, and also at the front there is a parking bay, with space for one car.
    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.
  • Great place set away from traffic. But still pretty close to the main road. Looks quaint outside, but very well done inside with all the amenities you could want.

    Hamza2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is steeped in character, lovingly furnished, and super cosy. It had two well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, and as two couples travelling we had plenty of room. We enjoyed walks directly from the property and would definitely recommend it for a quintessential stay in the Cotswolds.

    Emma2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in this gem of a cottage before so I knew our stay would be a very comfortable one. The cottage is deceptively spacious and very welcoming. It would be my ‘go to’ cottage booking in the Cotswolds.

    Lj2019-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for families. Quite , well located.

    Kim2018-10-04T00:00:00Z

    Lj2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Willow Cottage exceeds expectations - it's a perfectly gorgeous gem of a Cotswold cottage in a picturesque village - really just a church and a handful of homes. The pastoral surroundings and the cottage itself could not have been more lovely. Thank you for being the anchor of our stay and we''ll look forward to a return visit.

Double bedroom, en suite shower room, fully equipped kitchen/living room with sofa bed, private courtyard garden. WiFi, underfloor heating, freesat TV, parking. Basic breakfast included. Great village pub nearby.
    Bed linen and towels are provided. On-drive parking is available for two vehicles. The property is adjoined to the owner's family house, but is completely self-contained with its own access. There is space to store bicycles securely (behind a locked gate). To the rear there is a small, private courtyard garden. The property is self-catering but the cupboards are stocked with items for a basic breakfast, plus tea and coffee. The property is compact but well-equipped and newly decorated and furbished throughout. Everything is brand new and clean: the conversion was completed in January 2016. It will sleep two comfortably. There is also a double sofa bed which will sleep a further two people, but space is very limited when the sofa bed is extended, and it is a bit of a squeeze. Please also be aware that access to the toilet and shower room is through the bedroom. Babies and children of all ages are very welcome.
    The village of Poulton has a shop, a well-equipped children's park, a church and a fantastic dining pub, The Falcon Inn, which is renowned for its quality food (booking for dinner, particularly at weekends, is advised, as they are often fully booked in advance). Poulton is also home to Performance Cycles (cycling club), and the area is very popular with cyclists at all levels. The village is well situated within the Cotswolds, 5 miles from Cirencester, 3 miles from Fairford, 4 miles from Bibury, and within a half-hour drive of Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford, Malmesbury and Bourton-on-the-Water. Oxford, Bath and Stonehenge are all within an hour's drive. Kemble train station is 10 miles away, with the journey to London Paddington taking just under an hour and a half. Beautiful countryside is on the doorstep - just step outside and start walking! Nearby attractions include the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cotswold Water Park (with watersports and a beach), the famous village of Bibury (described by William Wordsworth as "the most beautiful village in England") with its trout farm, Cirencester with its boutique shops, spa hotel, gastropubs and historic architecture, Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park, and Swindon's Steam Museum and designer shopping outlet centre. Oxford, Bath and Stonehenge are all within an hour's drive. National Trust attractions include Chedworth Roman Villa, Buscot Park and Hidcote Manor Gardens, and the fantastic Westonbirt Arboretum is also nearby. Local events include the Royal International Air Tattoo in July, the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Cheltenham Festival in March, the Cotswold Show in July, Cirencester's Phoenix Festival (family music weekend) in August, and WOMAD world music festival in July. Westonbirt Arboretum holds autumn colour events, and Colesbourne Park holds snowdrops walks in the winter.

    Rachel2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • The house is about ten minutes drive from Byblos. It is very convenient to drive to the town during the day. The rooms are the same as the pictures. The rooms are small but they should be there. It ’s just that it ’s really crowded if you want to cook by yourself.

    Kathy2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    sarah2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property in an excellent location. The Chapel was easy to find thanks to clear instructions sent before our stay, and it was very clean and cosy, with plenty of space for eight people. The only slightly annoying thing was the shower in the annexe, which was breaking, but it was still useable so not too bad. Check in was very simple - we were even left a cake as a welcome gift. There are plenty of lovely walks nearby plus an amazing pub. We had a really wonderful weekend here. Thank you!

    Elizabeth2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage, perfect for any time of year. Great stay!

    Scott2019-12-30T00:00:00Z

    Lindsey And Tim2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space. We were a group of eight so the size was perfect. The main bedroom and annexe are great sizes both with en suites and the other two bathrooms are still a comfortable size with a good sized family bathroom. Garden is gorgeous and would be perfect for summer, sadly the weather didn’t allow us to enjoy it. Kitchen is a great size and very practical. Local pub the Falcon is very welcoming and great food- highly recommend. Overall a fab stay.

    Hannah2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay at The Chapel, the property is stunning and the process from booking through to arriving was very easy. The space works really well for a group of 8, with both the kitchen/diner and lounge being good communal spaces. The enclosed garden was also great, especially for the dog.

  • We spent four nights at The Hermitage and absolutely loved it. The cottage is beautifully decorated and so cosy with a great wood burner, fully equipped kitchen and bathroom. We felt really at home there. Outside there is a beautiful walled vegetable garden and a really great pub opposite which had delicious food. The whole experience was a real treat and would definitely recommend it to everyone!

    Sophie2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was absolutely perfect , great village with a lovely pub over the road ( The Falcon Inn ) . If you are interested in experiencing the Cotswolds , Hermitage cottage makes the most stunning base .

Accommodation was spotless when we arrived. Very modern and interior was so lovely. Bed super comfy and log burner was a touch especially as its getting colder and colder! It made the house very cosy. The host even left a birthday cake for us as it was my birthday trip away so this was a lovely touch. We are definitely thinking about returning and experiencing the place in the summer! Definitely recommend to anyone!

    If you want to experience the true Cotswolds, why not stay in a typical Cotswold Bothy in the heart of the region, in beautiful Bibury. A totally separate building, with ensure facilities and a lovely King- Sized bed. The Bothy has Tea & Coffee making facilities but no kitchen but fear not, The Catherine Wheel Pub is just across the road and the Four Star Swan Hotel is 500 yards away. Look up the village on the internet, the beauty speaks for itself, plus very handy for the rest of the Cotswolds
    It's just a lovely little room, totally separate from my cottage but near enough for any problems. Being in Bibury, it's very handy for other fantastic locations, such as Burford, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Broadway, Bourton-on-the-Water and many more!. The Swan Hotel is about 600 yards away and Cribbs Barn is about 2 miles away and both are very popular wedding venues.
  • Location was great, close to great walking route for us and our dog, across the road from a pub and in a quieter part of the village. Loved it and would return.

    Nina2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Chris was very friendly, approachable and offered a lot of local tips. His lovely little bothy was tastefully decorated and a cosy place to stay right and some beautiful walks and great pubs! We would go again!

    Stephanie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • A very clean and cosy Bothy which is an excellent place to stay when visiting the Cotswolds. Great location and Chris is the perfect host. Highly recommended

    Philip2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location! Directly opposite a pub, and walking distance down to the picturesque river and start of a great 6km walk around the countryside. Highly recommend the brunch and coffee in the Swan hotel too. Accommodation is definitely ‘snug’ - just a bedroom and a bathroom, but that’s all you need when out exploring 😁 Thanks for having us! Will definitely stay here if we come back.

    Kayley2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful property in a stunning location, great local pub with fantastic walks around the area.

    Dean2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The Bothy is a fantastic little place with period touches. We loved the huge ancient key to open the door! We were a little worried that we may hear the traffic given where it is located but we were not bothered by any traffic at all. As stated in the description of the property there are only tea/coffee making facilities which served us fine. We just popped across to the Catherine wheel pub for breakfast. I totally recommend this place and it has the added bonus of being a 5min walk from the centre of picturesque Arlington.

    Andre2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in the middle of Bibury. Ideal location near to Cripps Barn where we were attending a wedding. Comms with Chris was great. Easy to get in the house - nice room, spotlessly clean.

    Martin2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Chris' place was perfect for us - we stayed in Bibury for one night. It was warm and cosy and had everything we needed. Chris' communication was great. Would recommend!

    Oliver2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Photos do not do this place justice! We were overwhelmed with the cottage and it’s grounds. Allan and Ruby were incredible hosts and couldn’t have done any more! So many lovely extra touches such as fresh flowers, fresh bread and wine. Amazing stay and will definitely book to return again!

    Sarah2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Having read the other reviews before our visit I was very excited for our weekend away. The cottage 100% lived up to expectation and actually exceeded it. The cottage, house and surrounding grounds are beautiful and ell kept. The upgraded hot tub to the one in the photos was an awesome surprise. We didn't get to use the sauna, but a lovely facility that future guests are sure to make use of. Location was perfect for day tripping in the cotswold with pubs, restaurants and supermarkets all nearby. Overall an amazing spot tucked away in the beautiful Cotswolds. I hope we can make a return visit some day.

    Rebecca2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • 10/10. Absolutely brilliant beautiful cottage with amazing gardens (all fully secure so the dogs could roam free). Allan was an absolutely fantastic host who could not have been more welcoming. The cottage is gorgeous, sparkling clean and so cute and cosy. Can’t wait to come back.

    Thomas2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place is really nice. We had an amazing week end and the hot tub was really relaxing. I definitely recommand it! We will be back for sure!

    Maud2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cute cottage tucked, away on stunning grounds. If it's escapism you're after, I can't recommend this place highly enough! Alan was so kind, greeting us as we srrived. he showed us around, and even invited us in the share a bottle of wine with him! We loved the thoughtful touches-freshly cut flowers, croissants, prosecco etc which were left for us. Jodie was even kind enough to decorate the place with balloons and banners, as it was a surprise getaway for my partner's birthday. Excellent location for wandering around cirencester, taking walks around stunning English countryside, and visiting the local theatre. Or if the weather is not great, the cottage/hot tub/sauna are perfect enough to just stay at home! Definitely plan on returning to this gem of a place in the future!

The cottage has been restored with modern ultility and comfort. Please bear in mind that there are no mobile signal for most servers however there's wifi at the cottage. The cottage number 27 is on the left of the photograph. Entrance to the left around the corner so not the whole house as the right is No 26.

The second bedroom has a SMALL double bed, it will sleep two adults It is a old cottage built in 1703 but has heating set ON at all time and modern bathroom (LOW ceiling height), kitchen and WIFI All towels and beds with clean sheets and top blanket are provided. I am not running a HOTEL so we don't offers room services or open welcome door services OR provides wood to light the fire in the fire place.
    Bibury is a charming, typically Cotswold, village just a short drive from "The Capital of the Cotswolds", Cirencester. Bibury was once described by William Morris (1834-96) as "the most beautiful village in England". In fact, Fox News says that Bibury is one of the world's most picturesque villages, and an article on the Huffington Post website (1st May 2014), titled "The Most Charming Towns In Europe You'll Want To Visit ASAP", mentioned Bibury. And the cottages of Arlington Row are often referred to as the most photographed and beautiful cottages in the country.
  • Great authentic cottage in a fantastic location.

  • Quintessential Cotswold cottage

    Zhongkan2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • An absolutely gorgeous little cottage in Bibury and the location is just incredible - so many beautiful views and hikes available. We loved our stay. Very cosy and the fireplace is a great added bonus. Really great pressure in the shower - I was a bit worried about that beforehand as, sometimes, older buildings have really weak showers - but these one was absolutely great. A really lovely old cottage - would definitely recommend and hope to come back again soon!

    Anna2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Wonderful base to explore Cotswolds. The house has lovely touches and great use of space. Highly recommended.

    The Old Farm Bed & Breakfast is located within the picturesque village of Ampney Crucis in the heart of the Cotswolds. This brand new, peaceful, self contained detached annex is in the grounds of the The Old Farm, a traditional cotswold stone house.
    This brand new, peaceful, self contained detached annex is warm and cosy. It has a luxurious king size bed and a small wet room with a rain shower.

  • Very clean and nicely decorated with a lovely shower and a comfortable bed.

    Kailey2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Very beautiful and comfortable. The room was very warm as well which was great since it was freezing outside. We had a bit of trouble finding the place as google map took us to a different location (which Fiona had pointed out in advance) hence she had provided directions beforehand but since we arrived late and there were no street lights it was hard to tell what was what and we got lost anyway. It may help to arrive while it is still light out. Communication was great and the cereals and drinks were a plus:) Would highly recommend!!

    Eimi2020-03-10T00:00:00Z
  • Just got back from a delightful stay - Fiona was a great host, with local tips (we really enjoyed our afternoon at The Crown of Crucis pub/restuarant) and great hospitality (fresh orange juice, milk and croissants were a treat). The space was impeccably clean, warm and cosy. Would highly recommend.

    Heather2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great space, quiet and peaceful but close enough to amenities if you need them. Perfect for a break or business trip.

    Catherine2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying in this calm, beautiful annexe. It was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, and we really appreciated the fresh milk and juice left for us. Located in a quiet, rural location but within a short driving distance of lots of attractions, it was perfect for us and we would definitely stay again.

    Katherine2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • The best Airbnb we have stayed at... classy, stylish and functionally perfect. Gorgeous wet room, lovely continental breakfast. Comfy bed almost made us check out late ! Helpful and lovely host .... Honestly can’t fault this, place it’s wonderful.... thank you Fiona

    Martin2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Love atmosphere on arrival, really approachable host and perfect get away environment! 10/10!

    Alex2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Unbeatable place to spend a few days in the Cotswolds. Good situation, very clean and comfortable. I recommend it without a doubt.

    You will love Stable Cottage because of its unique and peaceful setting attached to our C18 Cotswold Farmhouse which has wonderful views and huge garden. It's is private, spacious but cosy with a comfy bed and woodburning stove for chilly winter evenings. Perfect if you want to come and isolate yourself from coronavirus..
    The beautiful setting and stylish interior
    The peaceful countryside and convenient location. There are footpaths nearby and the nearest Pub is 2.3 miles away.
  • The cottage is absolutely brilliant. Lovely location and only a short drive from the best parts of the Cotswolds.

    Hugh2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely clean, tidy and comfortable. A good location, close to Cirencester and some good pubs.

    Andrew2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this lovely cottage in the middle of a farm: very charming, very convenient with a fully equipped kitchen. The fireplace is such a plus in winter and cosy. The bedding is perfect and comfortable. Very adapted for a couple and a baby. Caroline is very nice and flexible regarding check in time. Unfortunately we did not get the chance to meet her.

    Alixia2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Cottage as described. Surrounds beautiful and very peaceful. Very clean and location brilliant! A must!

    Gary2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Stable cottage is a fantastic place to enjoy the Cotswolds. The excellent facilities and great touches (particularly the woodburner) made our short stay both easy and extremely comfortable. I will definitely return to enjoy this beautiful part of the world again soon.

    Alex2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at the cottage was amazing, everything was alot better then except the photos dont do it justice. Caroline was so helpfull and responded very quickly to any questions or enquiries we had. The honey was amazing for the bee hives closeby and the eggs from the Chickens that were wondering about. An amazing palace will stay again!

    In our beautiful Cotswold garden, wind up through the rockery to this sheltered hillside spot, with its very own private deck and seating area, offering gorgeous views to the surrounding village, nestled in idyllic countryside. This light and airy, but warm and cosy studio has a super comfortable kingsize bed, a desk and a separate stylish modern bathroom, a lovely deep bath, and a very efficient shower attachment if needed. You will be living under the eaves, so headspace is a little limited.
    You are welcome to potter about our large garden.
    We are just 2 minutes walk from the Seven Tuns Pub, which is a quintessential Cotswold country pub, with good food and roaring log fires - this is a great place to while away an afternoon or have an evening out without any need to drive. We are situated in the most beautiful countryside with miles of footpaths. We have a beautiful church and a Roman villa in the village and a farm shop that serves an all day ‘bottomless’ breakfast. Nearby Cirencester has great independent shops and a Waitrose. Also highly recommended for food is The Village Pub at Barnsley and The New Inn at Coln St Aldwyns. There is also a village taxi service, if you need a lift home. Needless to say, we are right on the doorstep of all the well known cotswold villages and beauty spots, so this is an excellent location from which to tour around.
  • Caroline’s place is a real delight. A picturesque setting with great views and places to explore. A great host from the moment she helped us locate which cottage was hers in the dark! The studio itself was lovely too, with lots of nice finishing touches. Would recommend taking a trip to the local pub, where we had a lovely pie and chips!

    Matt2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Just as perfect as the first time! Caroline's hospitality is second to none and we thoroughly enjoyed our second stay with her. Once again the room was very clean and had all the facilties you could need. We forgot how lovely the bath is and how comfortable the bed is, which led to an unplanned lie in - oops! Caroline and her husband had lots of suggestions for places to eat and visit in the area which was greatly appreciated. Communication was also very quick and there was always someone around if needed. We will be back very soon!

    Emily2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy and perfectly located!

    Annie2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline was an absolutely fantastic host. We came out for a romantic weekend and this exceeded all our expectations. The space is a lovely separate loft room out in a gorgeous garden. Lots of little touches - including an outdoor 'refrigerator' in the stream that runs through the garden! Caroline provided some excellent suggestions for our trip and this place proved to be a perfect base to explore the Cotswolds - with most of the big names within 20-30min drive down picturesque lanes and through tiny villages. Would highly recommend staying with Caroline to anyone who wants a perfect getaway!

    Campbell2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beyond beautiful village. Stylish, intimate and classy room. I’d definitely go back

    Jacob2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Beatiful location and perfect hosting.

    Simon2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline is an amazing and hospitable host! Before we arrived, she sent us so much useful information about Chedworth and the surrounding Cotswold towns, which we found really useful when we were planning what to do for the duration of our stay. She is on the doorstep of a lovely Cotswold pub, as well as lots of amazing trails to walk along. We walked along a path she recommended to us, which led to the Roman Villa - and she was so kind as to lend me and my partner boots for the walk! The lodge was sparkling clean and kitted out with a kettle, cafetiere coffee, and tea ready for us - as well as some milk already in the stream basket! Caroline is definitely a super-host! Her hospitality and attention to detail made our Cotswolds getaway an absolutely amazing experience!

    Lucy2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline’s place is ideally located for anyone who wants a break in the Cotswolds for a couple of days. It was very clean, easy to locate and a perfect base to explore the surrounding area from. Caroline was always quick to respond to any questions and had plenty of suggestions for things to do in the local area!

    Beautiful 18th-century Beehive Cottage, in the Cotswold village of Poulton, sleeps 6 guests across one king-size, one double and one twin bedroom. The cottage has a very well- equipped kitchen, a spacious living room with an inglenook fireplace and wood burning stove, a separate Snug with a work area, a spacious family bathroom with a bath and a downstairs shower room/utility. Outside is a large, pretty garden and off-street parking for two cars, with free on street parking readily available.
    Introduction As you pull onto the gravelled drive at Beehive Cottage, in the village of Poulton, you’ll immediately feel a sense of serenity as the history and beauty of the cottage greets you. It is an archetypal Cotswold property, built in the 1760’s with Victorian additions – the type of home you see featured in property magazines and wish you could stay! The owner has renovated Beehive Cottage very sympathetically, maintaining the traditional character of the cottage yet providing every modern convenience with a contemporary but stunning interior design – including richly pigmented, eco-friendly Farrow & Ball paints - plus everything you need for a thoroughly pampered, self-catered Cotswold holiday. Beehive Cottage’s front door is framed by wisteria and passionflower, with thick swathes of lavender in the garden’s raised beds, attracting butterflies and bees in the summertime. French doors open from the Kitchen-Dining area to an outdoor seating area, which wraps round the cottage to further seating and a barbecue. Steps leads up to a lawn, with mature planting, and a second large table, where you can sit and enjoy the last rays of evening sunshine looking back towards the cottage. The traditional character of Beehive Cottage, including a stunning inglenook fireplace (with a secret stone staircase behind winding up to Bedroom 3), original oak beams and exposed Cotswold stone walls combines fabulously with the carefully chosen modern amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen with 6-ring hob, a shower/utility room, a family bathroom, WiFi, a Smart TV, Bose speaker, a Snug with work area (for guests who have to check in to the office) and exquisite, decorations throughout the cottage that have been hand-painted by the owner. Poulton is a small but thriving Cotswold village with a traditional British pub, The Falcon Inn, serving British modern food, and featuring locally brewed cask ales. The village has a church (St Michael’s and All Angels) and a children's playground and playing field, called ‘Englands’, directly across the lane from the cottage. A traditional summer fete is held each year on the first Sunday after the August Bank Holiday. The closest food shops to the cottage are in Fairford, approximately 3 miles away (see ‘Local Amenities’). (please note: Poulton no longer has a village shop.)  FACILITIES  Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms across 1 king-size double bedroom, 1 standard double bedroom and 1 twin bedroom (2 singles)  2 bathrooms: 1 family bathroom (Bath, toilet, wash basin); 1 ground floor shower room (walk-in shower, toilet, wash basin)  Parking: driveway, with parking space for two cars.

Two sofas and an armchair provide comfy seating for six guests to watch the Smart TV and enjoy the wood burning stove, while a window seat is the perfect place to perch and read a book. During renovation work, a stone stairway was unearthed behind the fireplace, leading up to the twin bedroom; providing a fascinating glimpse into the cottage’s past. (Although the staircase is open, the owners do not recommend using it as it is steep, narrow and uneven. A lock is provided on the twin bedroom door to prevent younger guests in that bedroom from using the staircase.) The cottage’s main staircase leads up from the Living Room to the three bedrooms and Family Bathroom Turn left down two stone steps to: The Snug-Study A delightful room between the kitchen and Living Room featuring flagstone flooring with a cosy, richly coloured rug, a desk (with pens, paper and colouring pencils), an antique glass-fronted bookcase with novels and local guides, and a two-seater leather sofa and an armchair with a footstool, perfectly placed to watch a meal being prepared or relax in the quiet of the Snug. Pass through an arch to: The Kitchen/Dining Area The bright and airy dual-aspect kitchen/dining room has French doors opening out to the garden and seating area, and a window over the sink overlooking the barbecue area. The kitchen is fully equipped to a very high standard, with everything you would need for a self-catered stay, including a Leisure range-style electric cooker, with a double oven, grill and six-ring hob, fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and Nespresso coffee machine, plus a superb range of crockery, bakeware, cutlery and glassware. Guests are provided with a starter supply of essentials, including teabags, Nespresso pods, instant coffee, fresh milk, oils, salt and pepper and cooking condiments. The large dining table comfortably seats six guests. Off the Living Room: Shower Room/Utility Through a door off the Living Room is the handy downstairs Shower Room/Utility with a walk-in corner shower (with hand-held and overhead shower), toilet, wash basin and heated towel radiator. The cottage’s Hotpoint washing machine is in this room, along with an outdoor and indoor airer for drying clothes, an iron and ironing board. Upstairs Stairs up from the Living Room lead to the carpeted landing and the cottage’s three bedrooms: Bedroom Three The first bedroom at the top of the stairs is the pretty twin bedroom, with exposed oak eaves, charming artwork, two single beds and a day sofa, all carefully arranged to provide plenty of room to walk around. The bedroom is furnished with bedside chests and lamps, a corner hanging rail, and a lovely window seat overlooking the garden’s outdoor seating area. A door at the back of the room opens to the steep, secret staircase down to the Living Room. This door can be bolted to stop young children using it. Bedroom Two Cross the landing to Beehive’s king-size bedroom, with its soft-yellow walls and accents of pink and red. Guests can watch the world go by, sitting in the window seat while reading a book from the wide selection of novels from the bedroom’s bookcase. The room is furnished with a sink-in KING bed, half-height wardrobe, a bedside chest of drawers with a reading light, and an impressive mirror. Hairdryer in drawer. Bedroom One At the end of the landing, up two stairs, is the master bedroom, affectionately known by the owner as the Butterfly Room, which features a sink-in, double-size bed and walls decorated with beautifully hand-painted butterflies. The room is furnished with a handsome, cherry wood chest of drawers and dressing table, bedside tables with reading lamps and a hanging rail with a shoe rack. With windows on three sides, overlooking the garden and the road below, the master bedroom is bright and light, but has exquisite hand-made, heavy curtains and a blind to ensure a really good night’s sleep. Family Bathroom Located next to Bedroom One, the Family Bathroom is practical yet exudes relaxation at the same time, with its painted wooden floor, half-panelled soft-grey walls and an intricately hand-painted partridge, complimented by a series of antique birds’ egg paintings. The bathroom features a full-length bath, with luxury bubble bath provided, a toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail. Outside Beehive Cottage has a charming garden with a lawn and a gravelled area with seating and parking for two cars. Wisteria and passionflower frame the front door and climb up to the bedroom windows, while in the summertime lavender blooms fill the air with their scent, attracting bees, butterflies and birds. Step through the French doors in the Kitchen to the outdoor seating area, with its oblong-shaped table, seating for eight and charcoal barbecue. Beyond the parking area, up a few steps, is an immaculate lawn with raised beds and an original beehive – no longer in use!

  • The perfect place for a cosy weekend getaway. Beehive Cottage is beautiful and none of us wanted to leave! It’s warm and inviting and the personal touches meant such a lot. The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you could need, the sitting room is cosy with a lovely wood burner which is easy to use. The whole house is beautifully furnished and is a quintessential Cotswold cottage! My friends and I had the perfect weekend away and we will certainly come back to beautiful Beehive. Thank you so much!!

    Sophie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cottage in quiet village, ideal for family get away where you cater for yourselves. Nice inn nearby for good food at reasonable prices. Cottage is well furnished and cosy and log burner provides idyllic homely feel. Only drawback was draft through doors and not all doors to rooms close fully, which does lend itself to a spooky feel when they open when you're trying to sleep!

    Scott2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous cottage Beehive is. My friends and I had the most perfect stay made all the more wonderful by the well stocked kitchen, the lovely welcoming touches, the comfy beds and sofas and the roaring fire. The cottage has been renovated beautifully and it was a pleasure to stay in. We can HIGHLY recommend eating at The Falcon Inn next door (make sure you book). The little village of Bibury is a short drive away and well worth a visit. A couple of tips for the house - bring slippers as the stone floors are cold, and the complimentary logs last 1 evening and there is nowhere local to buy more once you’ve had a glass of wine or two! So bring wood with you or buy some along the way so you have plenty. We will most definitely be back :)

    Hannah2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, cosy, well-stocked cottage - the perfect retreat for 3 couples and a baby. We loved all the features, allowing for long meals and games in front of the fire. The house was sparkling clean throughout and the beds were very comfortable. The attention to detail was second to none - and the hand painted decoration is stunning. We also loved the home baked cake for our arrival, much needed after a long drive! Thank you so much.

    Bella & Ed2019-12-21T00:00:00Z

    Situated in the picture-postcard village of Coln St Aldwyns, Cotswold Cottage is a delightful and spacious family home sleeping 6 guests across 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a separate WC. This period property is the epitome of country charm, featuring a well-equipped Kitchen, separate Dining Room and comfortable Living Room. Full of surprises, Cotswold Cottage also boasts an incredibly pretty private garden, not to mention the secret and luxurious loft-conversion en-suite bathroom!
    INTRODUCTION One of the undiscovered Cotswold villages, Coln St Aldwyns will delight anyone who wants to be immersed in the Cotswold countryside and have an authentic Cotswold experience, yet avoid the hustle and bustle of the Cotswolds’ tourist hot spots. As with most Cotswold villages, Coln (as the locals call it) is steeped in history, with a perfectly maintained, 13th-century Norman church and 17th-century coaching inn, the New Inn. As you stroll around the village, you’ll find endless photo opportunities to capture beautiful, honey-coloured, Cotswold limestone cottages backed by pastoral, rolling countryside. Cotswold Cottage is an idyllic Cotswold home for families or friends looking for utter peace and quiet. One thing that may strike you about Coln is its blissful feeling of calm. Guests who are fortunate enough to enjoy sunny days at Cotswold Cottage will be able to appreciate the tranquillity of its gorgeous garden. Providing plenty of open space and room, Cotswold Cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the undulating Coln Valley and rushing waters of the River Coln, or to venture further afield. 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. If you’re staying with little ones, simply cross the road to a safe, secure and immaculate adventure playground, complete with picnic tables and benches. Then wander downhill to the River Coln, flanked by rolling hills that are home to flocks of sheep and herds of cows – a truly bucolic scene. If you’re lucky enough to catch a sunset, it’ll be one of the most beautiful you’re ever likely to see! Head back up the road to the Coln Community Shop for a cuppa and a slice of some of the tastiest cake in the Cotswolds! At the end of your day exploring the Cotswolds, return to Cotswold Cottage and Coln St Aldwyns, far from the madding crowds, with easy parking, peace and quiet and an immaculate and cosy home-from-home.   FACILITIES  Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms across 2 standard double beds and a king size double  1x downstairs WC, 1x family bathroom and 1x en-suite bathroom (no WC)  Off street parking  Private enclosed garden – safe for children  All bed linen, bath towels and tea towels provided  Hairdryers in each bedroom  Toiletries (hand soap, shower gel, shampoo)  Welcome pack including tea and coffee pods for the machine  Heating and hot water  Free Wi-Fi  TV with Freeview  Blueray DVD player / DVDs  Games + books  Child friendly  Fully equipped kitchen with toaster, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine, utensils, crockery, cutlery, glassware (champagne flutes, tumblers and wine and water glasses) bakeware, food preparation.  Roasting tins  Full set of Le Creuset pans and casserole dishes  Britannia range cooker with double oven and 5 gas hobs  Sharp microwave  Dishwasher  Separate fridge and freezer  Bosch washing machine  Ironing board, iron, clothes airer, cleaning equipment  Deckchairs/ sun loungers + outdoor furniture  Vacuum cleaner  Baby/Child Equipment: high chair and travel cot (cot linen not supplied)  Garden dining – seats 6  BBQ (charcoal) – please provide your own charcoal  Safety equipment: fire extinguisher, fire blanket, carbon monoxide monitor, smoke alarm, First Aid kit.

    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.

A very quaint and cosy little place, newly decorated with gorgeous furniture and the whole place was exceptionally clean - we felt at home as soon as we arrived!

Great location with some lovely village pubs very close by and a short drive into Cirencester where we had a lovely day mooching about. Would highly recommend staying here. Thanks Sally and family.

  • Amazing place, the house is spotless and so cozy. Village is lovely. Would 100% recommend.

  • Lovely little escape in the middle of a small village. Tucked away on a quiet road (we drove past twice before finding it), parking on the street was easy plenty of space just outside opposite the bu top. Directions take you to the little shop, I think we'd have found it straight away but we didn't have much signal to check our directions. Unfortunately didn't get to spend much time in the house as we were attending a wedding but would love to return to experience the countryside. Beds all very comfy, modern bathroom, cosy living room and a kitchen that has everything you need. Very well presented.

    Amy2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home, everything perfect, lovely location, easy clear communication.

    Nalinee2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a pretty house with very good location. You can see ox eating grass when you have breakfast. The playground opposite this house so funny that my kid likes it so much. Next time I hope I could book longer reservation.

    Alicia2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great home nestled away in a quiet village in the Cotswolds. Central to everything the region has to offer, but much quieter than what we experienced in the other bustling villages. Great kids playground directly across the street.

    Jenn & Mark2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • It is a townhouse with a courtyard in the Katswald region. We live in one of them. If you are driving, such a house is suitable. The facilities in the house are all available.

    This stunning accommodation is situated within the grounds of a beautiful architectural award-winning private estate in the Cotswolds “an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)”. With close links to the vibrant Roman town of Cirencester (named the capital of the Cotswolds) and other idyllic towns and villages such as Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford, this is the perfect location to start your exploration through the “Heart of England”.
    The Nook sits nestled between two converted Cotswold stone barns and was once the Coach House to the Manor House. Lovingly restored and converted this cosy niche offers lots of options for a variety of guests from couples looking for a romantic weekend break, small families wanting a base to explore the Cotswolds to professionals working in and around the local area.
    While there are no pubs and shops within a short working distance, the bustling Roman town of Cirencester, packed with shops, Bistros, pubs and eateries is just 5 minutes drive.
  • A beautiful location, a great little cottage in wonderful location. Very handy for Cirencester and environs. The accommodation is just as described and very well appointed. The local farm shop is great for coffee in the morning. Will be back.

  • The place was easy to get too and very peaceful. It was warm and inviting from the get go and we were able to get in and start relaxing instantly. It was far enough away that it was quite and chilled our but close enough that there was enough to do and it wasnt difficult to get back to.

    Joel2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful decorated space in a lovely location. Hosts were quick to respond to queries. A great base for us to explore the Cotswolds

  • Perfect location for a trip to the Cotswolds! The estate is beautiful with lovely walks from your door. Cirencester is very close by and you can easily explore the area from the Nook. The hosts were extremely helpful before and during our stay, even bringing us candles during a power cut caused by storm Ciara which was really kind. The house is cosy and very clean with everything you need! Will definitely be returning!

Tip: If you go to the pub just up the road be sure to take a torch as no street lighting but it is a lovely place and worth a visit. All together I wouldn’t think twice about staying there again. Have a lovely time.

  • Lovely little stylish hideaway - off the beaten track just the way we like it. The Stump for pizza and pasta and the yummiest garlic dip we’ve ever tasted in the world is just a few minutes away. Kate lit us a fire both nights and it was just right for our contemplative escape from our busy stressful lives. Thank you Kate!

  • Lovely romantic space, good for two people to lounge and enjoy the space while exploring some corners of Cotswolds.

    Kylie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Kate’s place. The space is really stylish, clean and has everything you need. With the log burner and heaters it was super cosy and warm even in mid-feb! Despite being attached to the house there is a separate entrance to the studio so the whole area still felt nicely private. As shown in the description there is just a toaster, fridge, kettle and microwave but this was not a problem at all and we were kindly left milk, bread, condiments, tea, coffee and muesli for breakfast which was a really nice touch. We enjoyed two lovely meals at the Seven Tuns and at the Stump in the evenings - would highly recommend both! Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Laura2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kate’s place was extremely cosy and perfect for a getaway weekend. Even though the weather was bad, Kate’s place was a great place to stay in. Very clean and accommodating, would definitely stay again!

  • We stayed at Kate’s place to make the most of the quiet surroundings, walks and local pubs! It was the perfect spot! Very nice studio, with all the little details you need! Great evenings by the fire! Easy to find as it’s marked on google maps. Ideally a car to drive to closest shop, pub and other villages! Kate was super helpful and provided us with tips! Highly recommend it!

    Secluded Luxury Cotswold Woodland Annexe, surrounded by ancient woodland & organic farmland, located just outside Cirencester. We provide hotel-quality Linen & towels, Smart TV, fresh fruit & a selection of cereals, with a variety of Clipper & Pukka teas, and Fresh Coffee with Cafetiere. We also endeavour to provide extras including light refreshments in the fridge etc Nearby: Woodland walks, Cosy pubs, Organic Farm Shop and Cafe, Family activities, Roman History Please see info re. sofa bed.
    Our Oak-framed Annexe offers luxury accommodation for up to 3 Adults or 2 Adults and one child (plus an extra travel cot). Located within a local Organic farm estate, and surrounded by ancient woodland. The space is very comfortable and the space has been cleverly designed to accomodate everything you need for your stay. HOWEVER, if you are looking for somewhere really spacious (i.e. a Victorian Old Rectory with high ceilings and grand rooms, this isn't it!). About 99% of our guests are incredibly happy here and you can see that reflected in the reviews. BUT, you do get 1% who don't bother to read all the information and look at the photos beforehand. We would prefer to avoid negative reviews as this has a big effect on our overall ratings and it takes months and months of 5Star reviews to try to amend the damage done by that one slightly disappointed guest who didn't do their homework . Our accommodation provides the opportunity to escape, unwind and enjoy being thoroughly immersed in the natural beauty of the Cotswolds. There is a beautiful bluebell and wild flower wood at the end of our drive. A round route though the woodland and fields is good for running (3 miles) or walking. There is an abundance of interesting history and cultural goings on in the market town of Cirencester (originally the Roman capital of England, called Corinium). There is an impressive Parish Church in the centre, fantastic shopping, restaurants, cafes etc all within 5 mins drive. In the opposite direction, also within 5 mins drive from the property, is the award winning Organic Farm Shop & Cafe. Delicious food is served there six days a week (closed on Mondays). Other places to visit: Chedworth Roman Villa (5 mins drive up the Stow Road) Cotswold Water Parks (15 mins drive) Cotswold Wildlife Park (25 mins drive) Cotswold Farm Park (Adam Henson's farm from Countryfile - 25 mins) Cheltenham Spa (Cheltenham Races, brilliant shopping and attractive architecture - 25 mins) Stow-on-the-Wold (20 mins) Burford (25 mins) Tetbury (20 mins) Westonbirt Arboretum (25 mins)
    Secluded location in woodland surroundings, within an organic farm estate.
  • A lovely little place that is just 5 minutes drive from Cirencester. Its well hidden and secluded and the space is very welcoming and comfortable with a great shower. Olivia was a great host and kept in contact with us when ever we needed anything. The local food at the local pubs is super yummy!!!. We made sure we ventured out to see as much as we could of the beautiful cotswolds. Thank you. David and Sam.

    David2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • What a fantastic spot and use of space. Took my wife away for 2 nights for her birthday and Olivia's annexe was the perfect place for her to get some r&r after the busy Xmas period. Had everything we needed, including a couple of nice cold beers in the fridge! Lovely shower and a cosy bedroom, magic!

    Dan2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Olivia’s Airbnb is beautiful. The space is well thought out, with everything that we needed. Loved the little touches like breakfast, tea and coffee, and toiletries in the shower. Easy to find from the instructions given, and in a good location. We could have stayed longer...

  • Had a lovely stay at Olivia's little cottagey house! We stayed two nights for a wedding and explored the area which was perfect! The bathroom and bedroom were wonderfully decorated and very cosy. Just be aware of the stairs up to the property, at night when it was dark and damp they were a little on the slippy side. Thank you!

  • The most beautiful place to get away from life. The perfect weekend break away from home. Apartment was spacious, homely and the perfect space we were looking for whilst going to a wedding near by at stone barn, the host, Venetia, was so helpful whenever we needed anything. So much to explore around the area too and forever grateful for the wonderful apartment to just enjoy the lovely time away. Note for anyone wishing to stay, bring whatever food you plan to eat as closest shop was a solid 15/20 min drive. 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

  • We absolutely loved our stay...the place was perfect for us. We loved the look of the place, it was well thought out, the location is stunning and the bed is the most comfortable I've slept on ...so much so that I'm hoping Venetia can let me know what make it is so I can buy one the same :-)There were lovely thoughtful touches too like milk and water in the fridge when we got there. We had a brilliant day out in Bourton On The Water at the motoring museum...I recommend it if you haven't been there yet. Thank you again Venetia

    This beautiful, one-bedroom, 1-bath, 17th Century bothy, originally built to house cattle and a herdsman, has been lovingly converted into a luxurious and romantic bolthole for 2. The Bothy sits in the grounds of Arlington House, in the heart of the Cotswolds, and includes many extra welcoming touches that will delight you and make your stay that little bit special. Just a few minutes' walk from a local pub, with a roaring log fire and garden, and Arlington Row Cottages and 10 miles from Burford
    As you pull through the wrought iron gates and up the driveway of Arlington House, a stone’s throw from the popular village of Bibury, you’ll see the Bothy straight ahead. At first view the Bothy seems like an unimposing Cotswold stone barn. However, the moment you open the front door you’ll immediately realise you have chosen a luxurious and perfectly proportioned Cotswold bolthole for two. This old stone bothy was originally used for cattle over the centuries and has recently been converted. It now offers a light, bright and stylish accommodation for two. Downstairs is an open plan, elegant sitting room with a well-equipped corner kitchen. A spiral, contemporary staircase leads upstairs to a beautiful bedroom with an ensuite shower room.

    Arlington was first mentioned in the Domesday Book (1086) and was for centuries a village known for cloth making. Arlington village and Bibury village sit side-by-side, separated by the River Coln, a tributary of the River Thames. The village’s honey coloured cottages are what many visitors regard as quintessential Cotswold, with many visitors making a beeline to the famous Arlington Row cottages, once depicted on the inside cover of every UK passport, and just a minute’s walk from the Bothy. Arlington was also the ancestral birthplace of John Custis II, who emigrated to the Colony of Virginia and named his Virginian mansion "Arlington" after the village. Arlington Mansion was abandoned, but the name was used again by his great-great-grandson, George Washington Parke Custis (the grandson of Martha Washington and step-grandson and adopted son of George Washington, the first President of the United States), as the name for Arlington Estate on the south shore of the Potomac River near what is now Washington, D.C. Today it is known as Arlington National Cemetery. The 19th-century artist and craftsman William Morris called Bibury "the most beautiful village in England" – he probably meant Arlington too!
