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.

Elegant Cottage Retreat

5 of 5
A fabulously styled cottage with everything we could possibly need: a comfortable bed, well-equipped kitchen and an especially gorgeous bathroom. The photographs didn't do this property justice. Weather was a bit gloomy, but we were part-working anyhow. The underfloor heating was just great and although it was nice to have to hand, we didn't need the log burning stove. We had a warm and delicious welcome with a super bottle of wine and a handmade lemon drizzle cake. Just what you need after motorway chaos. I would wholeheartedly recommend this cottage.

A beautiful cottage

5 of 5
An instant wow factor to this little cottage. Ideal for our mini break and superb location without knowing your so close to all the shops. The owners have thought of everything including some Xmas decorations. A big thumbs up from us.
