  • About the property

    Family-friendly and dog-friendly too, the cottage is an excellent choice for a real home-from-home experience in the Cotswolds. Socialise in the stunning kitchen/diner, step out into the private garden to dine alfresco, or relax beside the log burner on cold winter evenings. You’ll find the cottage a comfortable base with a village pub to hand and easy access to the Cotswolds countryside and picturesque villages, plus the spa town of Cheltenham with its fantastic shopping opportunities, race days and annual literature and jazz festivals.

  • The space

    Built in the late 1800s from local Cotswolds stone, this cottage is full of traditional style and retains many period details alongside its modern interior and high-tech features that include an electric car charger.

    The light and spacious, open-plan, kitchen/diner is a great place where everyone can socialise. Gather around the antique French farmhouse table that seats six, or sit at the kitchen island with a drink and keep the cook of the group company as they prep dinner. There’s everything you could need to self-cater with fully-integrated appliances including a dishwasher, washer dryer and fridge freezer.

    Bi-fold doors in this room open up to the private garden so that you can enjoy the best of indoor/outdoor living when the weather is kind. It’s a brilliant entertaining space with a patio with comfortable sofa seating and a Weber BBQ with a built-in pizza stone, while the kids can let off steam on the lawn or on the trampoline.

    The family lounge has a log burner, a TV and a corner sofa making it great for movie nights and lazy wet days in, while the snug is a more grown-up sitting room that's perfect for a bit of peace whilst reading a good book. There’s also the convenience of a downstairs WC.

    If you need to do some remote work during your stay, there’s fast broadband and WiFi, a laptop-friendly office area and even a glass dry erase board should you need it.

    Upstairs there are three bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and two with a double bed, all with a TV, some storage space and luxury mattresses. There’s also a family bathroom with a rolltop bath and a separate walk-in shower.

    On the driveway, there is parking for one car.

Location

Local Info

The neighbourhood

The cottage is located in the village of Andoversford near Cheltenham in Gloucestershire and is part of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There’s great food, including Sunday lunch, available at the village pub that has a lovely outdoor dining area, whilst the Frogmill is about a half hour’s walk across the fields. There are plenty more places to eat in the local villages. Andoversford also has an olde worlde store where you can pick up essentials, a post office and a village green.

Andoversford is also a great base from which to explore the Cotswolds and some of its most beautiful villages, including Bibury, Bourton on the Water and the Slaughters. If you want to walk, you’re in the right place. Put your boots on and begin along the disused railway line that runs through the village and takes you into the rolling hills. You can also explore by foot or by bike along the Cotswolds Way.

The cottage is also a great place to stay if you’re attending a wedding at either the Frogmill hotel or the exclusive event venue called The Barn at Upcote Barn, which are both a several-minute drive away.

Meanwhile, the large spa town of Cheltenham is about 6 miles away and has a wide range of shops, bars and restaurants. The Cotswolds Farm Park isn’t too far and is a great hit with children, whilst family-friendly attractions in the wider Cotswolds area include Sudeley Castle, Pittville Park and Hidcote Manor Garden.

For local produce, there are many places to shop, but you should pop into Daylesford Organic, about 8 miles away, and if you’re a fan of Jeremy Clarkson then head over to his Diddly Squat Farm Shop in Chipping Norton.

Getting around

A car is recommended for travelling to the property and ease of getting around. There is driveway parking for one car and another parking space in front of the cottage. Public transport in the village is limited, however, there is a bus stop with services running to Cheltenham and the surrounding Cotswold villages. Meanwhile, Cheltenham Spa and its train station, are about a 20-minute ride in a taxi.
