Why we love this

  • Ideal for families and friends who wish to be close to Lechlade-on-Thames and Burford
  • Spacious communal living area with a traditional wood-burning stove
  • Perfectly appointed lower terrace, ideal for al fresco dining and morning coffees

A charming three-bedroom oasis privatised by magnificent dry stone walls, this stunning cottage is nothing short of enchanting.

A sizable living area marks the centre of the ground floor, with cosy tub chairs and a sumptuous sofa in which to enjoy the roaring log burner. Stone slabs ground the floor, while a collective of luxurious soft furnishings make for a particularly snuggly look and feel. Peeling yourself away from the comfort of the lounge may prove a trying task, but with plenty more on offer, including the fully-equipped modern kitchen area, venturing beyond the plush sitting area is a must.

With its high gloss cabinetry, downlighting and attractive breakfast bar, the kitchen area is so much more than just a cooking space - it’s a classic-meets-contemporary social hub, pristinely appointed and packed with high-quality appliances. Rustle up a fine feast and serve upon the glass dining table, raising a toast to magical moments shared. Alternatively, if the weather permits, venture out through the floor-to-ceiling patio doors and onto the terrace area for a spot of alfresco dining.

Downstairs you’ll also find a stylish atrium. Boasting a unique, glass-topped well, this stunning space welcomes sunlight to stream in freely, while the beautifully decorated dining area presents the perfect spot to indulge.

There’s also a handy downstairs bedroom. Complete with a queen-size bed, this beautiful chamber is adorned with irresistible country charm and an en-suite shower room.

Upstairs, there’s a continuation of the ‘old-meets-new’ theme, with carefully considered furnishings, adornments and a soothing neutral colour scheme present in every room. The master bedroom is effortlessly welcoming and features a king-size bed, while the family bathroom is complete with a bath and a separate shower. As we meander along the upstairs hallway, we are greeted by a third and final queen-size bedroom.

Outside, the magic of the cottage continues to unravel. From the open-air dining setups to the pristine patio and of course, the calming assortment of plants and verdure, if it’s at all possible, this cottage is as marvellous on the outside as it is within its walls.

There is a lock box which you can access on arrival.

Location of 'Willow Cottage


The neighbourhood

The cottage is situated in the rural village of Southrop, Gloucestershire, just a short distance from the historic Lechlade-on-Thames and Burford. The ideal spot for nature lovers and those longing for a trip back in time, Southrop is one of the few unspoiled Cotswold villages, making it a truly unique and delightful place to stay.

Listed buildings pepper the ancient village, with the church of St Peters (c1100) welcoming village dwellers to sample Southrop’s rich history. Alternatively, if it’s something a little tastier you wish to sample, The Swan pub is just a short walk from the cottage and serves a menu of delicious, locally sourced delights. The Ox Barn is yet another wonderful dining spot, as well as Cookery School and Spa at Thyme in the centre of the village.
