Things to do

-Churches: Construction on the Church of St. John the Baptist, Cirencester started as far back as 1115, it has a pipe organ from 1895, and it still holds services today. Located in the centre of town, this beautiful parish church is known for its Gothic perpendicular architecture and stained glass from the 1300s.

-Family attractions: Visit New Brewery Arts for arts, crafts, exhibits, and music. Watch working artists and craftsmen in their studios, and browse impressive and unique wares. There are also various workshops held year-round, which are particularly good fun for families with kids staying in holiday homes in Cirencester. Stop for a bite in the on-site café afterwards.

-Nature: The Cotswold Water Park is a massive 150 acres of man-made lakes including an inland beach. Cool off in the Cotswold Country Park and Beach under lifeguard supervision, or wander the nature reserves for bats, beavers, dragonflies, water voles and bird watching. There are also activities to enjoy, from aerial adventures to rally driving!

-Outdoor activities: Cirencester Park sprawls over 3,000 acres and is free to enter. It is the seat of the Bathurst family, and their massive estate sports the tallest English yew hedge in Britain, which is thought to have been planted around the year 1710. Dogs are allowed and are only required to be leashed at the entrance.

-Historical attractions Cirencester's Roman Amphitheatre is one of the best preserved in Britain, though it remains only partially excavated. It is about 150 by 135 feet and is estimated to date back to the 2nd century. This site speaks to the important role Cirencester played as an early Roman area.

The cottage itself is comfy and cozy. The shower is excellent and the bed is very comfortable. The stairs are a little steep and the ceilings are low so this needs to be considered. But was not a major concern. The cottage is perfect for a cozy, romantic getaway.

The location was great for exploring the surrounding area - there is so much to do. With welcoming hosts and lots of useful information provided, we had the perfect break.
