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.

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.

Walks on the doorstep and friendly pub with good food and beer two minutes away. In heart of the countryside it's like stepping back in time, every day is like an old fashioned Sunday, hardly any traffic, lovely. It's perfect for walkers, so many choices right on the doorstep. A fabulous roll top bath at the end of the day and a wonderful shower to get you going in the morning. It was truly a perfect place , we loved it.

The photos on the website don't do it justice. We had everything we needed and more for the weekend that we stayed here. The flowers were a nice touch, and we LOVED the heated outdoor swimming pool and sauna, absolute bliss! Cycle hire was easy and right next to the cottage, and we spent a whole day riding around the old railway tracks and country lanes to the quaint villages nearby. There are plenty of running and walking tracks within and outside of the estate which were very pleasant. Overall, a wonderful cottage in an area with so much to do for everyone, from nature to sport enthusiasts, and from toddlers to pensioners. Despite the wealth of activities available nearby, the estate and surroundings are very peaceful, perfect for a break from the norm. It would have been helpful to have had the opportunity to order a Welcome Pack or the like, as we would have liked the local produce to be more readily available upon arrival. The booking process was a breeze, Gary has been really helpful and provided lots of additional information, and we would certainly recommend it. Thank you for having us!
