Overview

About the property

2 bedroom Country Cottage near Bibury, great views, private garden, power shower

Lavender Cottage and its adjoining Cottage ,Lilac, are 200 yards from our farmhouse home. Until the 1970's they were farm-workers cottages but have now been transformed into two comfortable holiday cottages. Each cottage has its own private garden with lawn, trees and shrubs, garden furniture and barbecues so you are able to relax at home in this peaceful area. The cottages are on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, facing south, 6 miles from the market town of Cirencester with its Roman history and 2.5 miles from Bibury, described by William Morris as the most beautiful village in England.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: In both cottages fresh flowers from our garden, crisp white bedlinen and large towels are provided each week. The beds are always made up with duvets with a suitable 'tog' value for the time of year. Hairdryers are in the master bedrooms. Although we ask you leave the cottages clean and tidy, we take pride in ensuring the cottages are always cleaned and checked thoroughly before your arrival. All electricity and night store heating are included in the price. We provide enough wood for your first evening then you can either buy more locally or from us. Outside: The large private enclosed gardens are a great favorite with families with dogs or children or couples looking for a bit of peace. There is ample garden furniture and shade to sit under. Each cottage has its own barbeque. In Spring the gardens are full of blossom, and many visitors have commented on the bird-life. We have a tennis court near our house which visitors may use by arrangement. The field in front of the house are often grazed by horses and sheep and our pet pig, Clarissa is a great attraction! There is parking for 2 cars per cottage. The gardens have connecting gates if friends are renting both cottages.

Thank you, Carolyn, for an enjoyable and comfortable home away from home for two weeks while in the Cotswolds. We especially appreciated the fresh flowers.

Lovely property and area

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the Cotswolds. My wife knows it well but this was the first time for me. Although I have passed through it many times I have never stayed and explored the area. The cottage is well appointed and cosy and well situated for striking out to explore. Particularly liked Cirencester. Owners made us feel welcome and the dogs loved the garden. I think we may well be back!
