Make a holiday cottage in Somerford Keynes your home away from home

Somerford Keynes holiday cottages are the perfect place to base a quiet getaway suitable for the whole family. This small Gloucestershire village is steeped in history, with some archaeological finds dating back as far as the 1st century AD. Visitors of all ages are welcome to explore and enjoy this typical Cotswold village, which enjoys a location just five miles from the area’s largest town – Cirencester. HomeAway Somerford Keynes holiday cottages can be found for small groups, but the majority will fit from 5 to 10 people comfortably. Properties in this area do not just pay lip service to being family friendly, they mean it! Often, special extras for children like play tables, toys and books are included. It is also possible to find homes and cottages for rent in Somerford Keynes which allow dogs.

Things to do

-Nature: Bird watching is a fruitful undertaking in this area. With many nearby lakes, enthusiasts are often rewarded with exciting sightings. Some of their best reports are available online, so travellers can get an idea of what to expect.

-Outdoor pursuits: The Thames Path is a 184-mile walking trail that follows the Thames river. It is one of several long distance footpaths that crisscross England and Wales, called National trails. This one runs between the source of the Thames in Kemble to the Thames barrier in Charlton. Kemble is just three miles away from holiday homes in Somerford Keynes.

-Churches: The All Saints parish church is one of several grade II listed buildings in Somerford Keynes. These structures have been included on the Statutory List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest, and are protected from alteration or demolition. This church is known to date back to 685 and contains several monuments, some of which are also listed.

-Family attractions 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, and water vole. Much of the Somerford Keynes bird watching takes place in this area.

-Day trips: Two large towns are within easy access of Somerford Keynes holiday cottages that offer a change of pace from the quiet village life. Swindon is a large former market village of over 180,000 residents that’s located just 18 miles to the southeast of Somerford Keynes. It is home to the English Heritage Archives. Cirencester, just five miles away, enjoys its status as the second-largest Roman town in occupied Britain and the amphitheatre ruins make for an interesting visit, as does Cirencester Park.

Travel to Somerford Keynes

Somerford Keynes is easy to reach by road, rail or air. For road access, drive west from London for about two hours using the M4 or a combination of the M40 and A40. Visitors may also fly into Bristol airport, about 45 miles to the southwest. Birmingham airport to the north is another option – it serves 21 major European cities – but it is a little farther at 80 miles out. Alternatively, families can take the Cheltenham-Swindon-London line to Kemble. From there, it is only a three-mile taxi ride to your Somerford Keynes holiday home.

Comfy and cute

5 of 5
We had a great, if short, stay. The beds were comfortable and the area was quiet. Plenty to do available at your fingertips; water park, hiking and restaurants. Can't give a review of the club house, pool and such since we did not use them. Overall good stay in a comfy lodge.
