Why Tim Rolt chose Tewkesbury District
I inherited this property. It is set in the grounds of my childhood home. It is a rural bolt hole, a place of tranquility and peace set on a the side of a hill on the Cotswold edge. It is great walking country with many lovely walks accessible directly from the cottage. It is also very convenient for many of the attractions offered by the Cotswolds.

Principally this is a place of real peace and quiet. Set well back from the dead end road in an old perry pear orchard, Orchard Cottage offers a complete get away. With 360 degree rural views, the cottage windows provide the sight of a huge variety of wildlife. With direct access to open countryside there are many beautiful walks from the door - making the cottage ideal for walkers. The cottage is conveniently placed for most of the attractions of the cotswolds.
