A beautiful and stylish cottage in a pretty village. It was very well equipped and the Aga and woodburners kept us lovely and warm on a cold Easter weekend. We enjoyed the local pub and proximity to Burford and local attractions.

This IS a lovely cottage and ideal for a large group or family but there are some caveats. Firstly. The "Large Aga" that appears in the cottage inventory was key to our decision to rent, as we cook on an Aga at home. It was...More

About the neighbourhood
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.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
