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 beds were very comfortable, the cottage was warm and there was everything that we needed. The owners made sure that we had everything we required and that we had settled in well; very kind and friendly. The village is peaceful and beautiful, it has a very relaxing atmosphere. The only regret we had is that we could only stay 3 nights.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

Small touches like the bottle of wine, milk etc. helped with the overall first impression. The greeting and overview by Richard was a great idea and simplified what could have been quite a complicated arrangement with access codes, parking spaces and permits. We found it a great location to explore Gloucester, the Cotswolds and even Stratford and Bath. The docks area is well served by a shop, coffee spots and restaurants. We would definitely recommend the property to friends and family. Thank you for a memorable stay.

The cottage was very cosy and warmed up very quickly. Wifi was good. Loved the wine & biscuits left for us, really nice touch, thank you! Be warned if you are over 5"11 as you will have to do a lot of bending down. Overall we loved the cottage and would definitely return!
