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.

Wonderful, picturesque cottage and fab host!

5 of 5
We were 7 girls looking for a lovely, relaxed weekend away in the countryside, and we were thrilled with the cottage and location. All the rooms are spacious and the beds are SO comfortable! The kitchen is so well stocked - even a jug of milk for our arrival! Samantha was a very friendly and fab host. We had such a great time and would definitely book again in future! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!! :)

A lovely cosy cottage, well presented and equipped

5 of 5
A return visit to this lovely cottage, which is nicely decorated throughout with some exposed stone walls, a well-equipped kitchen and very comfortable beds. It was very clean on arrival and the owner was readily available if we needed any help (which we didn't, in fact). Lots to do in this beautiful part of the country. We particularly liked the food at The Falcon Inn in nearby Poulton.
