Tetbury, Cotswolds, England
A Grade I listed Stuart garden house of 1620 in a private wooded valley in the heart of the Cotswolds. Sleeps 2 to 5 on three floors. Loggia on the ground floor has views over the listed gardens of the Tudor manor house.

The glass doors, divided by a simple Tuscan column, here frame the view of the east wing of the manor house and its yew trees immortalized by the etching of the famous Cotswold artist F.L. Griggs.

The small open-plan kitchen leads from the dining room. The bathroom lies beyond, with a bath and over-bath shower.

The cottage is on the Owlpen Manor estate which owns much of a very beautiful valley. Some of the most enchanting English countryside I have encountered. Long walks can begin from the front door and guests can wander around the estate. The local countryside is...More

The historic cities of Bath, Cheltenham and Cirencester are all within an easy drive, as are the cultural and scenic attractions of Oxford, Blenheim and Stratford Upon Avon, which are popular day excursions.
