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.

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.

This property came highly recommended and I must say, having stayed in properties all over the world, we were blown away. The situation of the property was stunning, overlooking a lake in a very well maintained row of properties. It was also ideal for myself, being a runner, as it was close to a canal and woodland which was perfect for running. The actual property was decorated to a very high standard and all the amenities within were stunning. It was scrupulously clean and tidy. The kitchen was fully stocked with cooking equipment (ideal for us as we didn't really want to eat out often). The owners had even thoughtfully left washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, kitchen roll, washing up cloths and tea towels for us. The bedrooms and ensuites, again, were tastefully decorated and very very clean. There were more than enough different sized towels left out for us on our beds and again plenty of toilet rolls were thoughtfully left for us. The televisions were in perfect working condition and we were able to watch everything we wanted, we could even use our laptops through the television to watch different films. Internet speed was very good. There was also a BBQ outside but, being the time of year, it was too cold for us to go out and BBQ. The owners also thoughtfully left a welcome book which contained everything we needed to know about the property, suggestions for places to visit and even local numbers for eateries and takeaways. I feel a lot of thought has gone into this property to ensure that those who stay here feel most welcome and I actually felt very at home. I enjoyed my stay so much that I will definitely be rebooking for later in the year.

With wildlife on the lake and 3 hungry robins to feed every day a picturesque outlook to see in 2017. Lots of beautiful villages close by with loads of wintry walks.
