Willow Tree Cottage is a beautiful detached property, which backs onto open fields in the heart of the Cotswolds village of Chedworth. With a popular local pub and farm shop, this unspoilt village is well placed for walking in the beautiful surrounding Coln Valley, and is close to Chedworth Villa, once one of the grandest Roman villas in the country. Northleach and Cirencester are close by, offering a range of shops and dining options, and the many picturesque towns and villages of the Cotswolds are all within easy reach.
Built from the highest quality Cotswold stone, Willow Tree Cottage has recently been refurbished to create well-proportioned living areas, in an elegant and contemporary style. The cottage has a wealth of character features, including wooden beams, window seats, exposed Cotswold stone, and a beautiful inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. This traditional character is complemented by a modern kitchen, wireless internet access and two SMART TVs.
Willow Tree Cottage sleeps 4 +2 people, in three bedrooms, with two ensuite bathrooms adjoining the two main bedrooms (the +2 option is a twin room accessed via bedroom 1's bathroom). The ground floor is well laid out and spacious, and there is a large garden surrounding the cottage, with a variety of planting, lawns, and a paved area perfect for al fresco dining. The gravel driveway has space for four cars. Willow Tree Cottage is perfect for a family with younger children, or two couples seeking an idyllic rural retreat in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
A security deposit of £200 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.
The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is 4+2 guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to one additional infant.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Child friendly facilities
A travel cot (without linen) and high chair are provided.
The property's garden is enclosed, however, guests should be aware that there is a small pond and steep steps in the garden, therefore young children should be supervised at all times.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including steep winding stairs and low beams. These features could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
There are two entrances to bedroom 2, one of which has a steep stone staircase leading directly from the room, protected only by a rope guard. Bedroom 3 is accessed via a low door frame, which itself is accessed via bedroom 1's ensuite bathroom. The restricted ceiling height in bedroom 3 means it is only suitable for children under the age of 14. There is a skylight in this room, which can be opened from the inside.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis, therefore those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
The garden contains a small pond and has terraced areas, with some steep steps between the different levels.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
Hen, Stag and other same sex groups
Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at Willow Tree Cottage. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
