A SUPERB RURAL RETREAT IN THE SOUTH COTSWOLDS NEAR BATH

Chipping Sodbury Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 double bedrooms, 2 en suite bathrooms, large lounge and huge kitchen

Sleeps 6, a two bedroom property, Cotswold cottage development around its own private courtyard. Situated deep in the countryside in an area of outstanding natural beauty yet close to Bath, the Cotswolds and less than two hours from London. It is 800 metres from the Cotswold way national trail and an ancient 1100 acre common with full access. It is 2 miles to the market town of Chipping Sodbury with a good selection of pubs and restaurants. It is a perfect place for dog lovers with lots of lovely walks where the dog can be let off the lead

Ideal for participants at Castle Combe car racetrack as we can accommodate secure trailer storage and undercover working area for racing cars.

ATTENTION ALL DOGS: HI, MY NAMES JULIE AND I AM A WELL BEHAVED GOLDEN COCKER SPANIEL WHO LIVES IN THE FARM THAT IS PART OF COTTAGE COURTYARD. THE WALKS AROUND HERE ARE FANTASTIC AND I AM REGULARLY LET OFF MY LEAD TO RACE AROUND THE COMMON, THE WOODS AND THE EMPTY FIELDS AROUND US. I CAN ROOT OUT AND CHASE RABBITS AND OFTEN CHASE DEER BUT CAN NEVER CATCH THEM. THE COURTYARD IS LOVELY, IT CATCHES THE SUN SO I CAN LIE OUT IN IT BUT MY OWNERS HAVE MADE IT DOGPROOF AND I CAN'T GET OUT OF IT. THERE IS AN OUTDOOR DOG WASHING TAP SO WHEN I ROLL OR GET DIRTY I GET EASILY WASHED URRGH. I WOULD LOVE TO SHOW ANOTHER WELL BEHAVED DOG THIS GREAT AREA SO PERSUADE YOUR OWNERS TO BOOK UP. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED, NOR WILL THEY

Courtyard: A large private sunny courtyard with a coal barbecue and a gazebo permanently built out of wood. It also enjoys the use of a private front garden and a tennis court by arrangement. The property is one hundred yards from an 1100 acre ancient common and a short walk to an excellent golf course. There is secure car parking off road.

Description: A unique development of a Cotswold cottage around a private courtyard. Situated in the heart of an area of outstanding natural beauty yet only 12 miles to Bath and Bristol, close to Westonbirt Arbouretum and only an hour and a half from London. This two bedroom property contains the original beamed roof with lovely features. Originally two separate apartments connected by a very large kitchen/games room this property was built as two apartments for the owners children and would ideally be suitable for two couples who both want to be relatively self contained.It would also appeal greatly to two or three generations of a family travelling together as we provide a futon and a sofa bed. The property has a full size tennis court that can be used by arrangement.

A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT.

  • 1 of 5
this is a wonderfully spacious property & could be fantastic. unfortunately, our experience over Christmas was that it was a question of style over substance. there were numerous problems, which really marred our enjoyment & certainly meant that it was not worth the large amount of money we were charged. the front door fitted so badly that it took the owners about 5 mins to open it to let us in: some nights it was impossible to lock & every time we went in or out, we had a struggle with it. one velux window in the living area was leaking when we arrived (we were left a mop & bucket to deal with this ourselves); subsequently, more water came in through the french windows & also through a bedroom velux window (in the middle of the night, onto the bed). the rain then dripped all night into the bucket we had to put there - the only bucket - resulting in no sleep for the occupant. boiler in our bedroom was faulty, so my husband had to get up at 6 each morning to adjust it, so that we had heating & hot water in that section. the shower in that bathroom was also faulty: we couldn't turn the handle until the last morning: having done this, the shower ran hot & cold & then water gushed through the handle & the only way to stop it was to get round the back & turn off the water completely. 2 rads needed bleeding. the enormous "barn" space was only heated by 1 small woodburner (although details had said the property was centrally heated). lighting this was also added to our early-morning routine - & it took hours to heat the place. there was no dishwasher, when the details had said there was one. the owner said, "you've got plenty of strong people to help with the washing-up". dishes & cultery were not clean. kitchen was badly planned, as there was barely any worktop space:trying to prepare christmas meals for 6 people (& wash up by hand) was extremely difficult & stressful. futon for 2 was uncomfortable for 1 person, as was the bed in the "studio flat", which had a very thin mattress. to add insult to injury, the owners expected us to pay extra for the briquettes for the woodburner - despite it being the sole form of heating an enormous space! having listed all the other problems, it was agreed that we didn't need to pay it. . in view of all the issues with this property, we feel extremely aggrieved that we have not been offered any compensation. any decent property owner would offer it as a matter of course, but it appears that we shall have to chase it.
