Beautifully refurbished house in a wonderful location.
Meadow View is one of the best holiday properties we have let. It has been recently refurbished to a very high standard and the layout of the property with its large kitchen diner, lounge and three double bedrooms was perfect for us. Coln St Aldwyns is a beautiful,quiet village with amazing walks in all directions. There are a number of wonderful National Trust properties near by as well as other popular spots (Bibury, Cirencester, Stow etc).
Really Lovely cottage
Perfect cottage for our family nice and neat, clean and comfortable the kids loved the playground across the road would definitely stay here again and Ruth helped us with all the questions we had, highly recommend
One of the undiscovered Cotswold villages, Coln St Aldwyns will delight anyone who wants to be immersed in the Cotswold countryside, have a memorable Cotswold experience, yet avoid the hustle and bustle of the Cotswolds’ tourist hot spots. As with most Cotswold villages, Coln (as the locals call it) is steeped in history, with a perfectly maintained, 13th-century Norman church and 17th-century coaching inn, the New Inn (due to open early Spring 2019). As you stroll around the village, you’ll find endless photo opportunities to capture beautiful, honey-coloured, Cotswold limestone cottages backed by pastoral, rolling countryside.
Meadow View is an immaculately decorated and maintained, bright and airy cottage, with lots of pretty windows affording views on all sides, sweeping across the Williamstrip and Hatherop Estates - acres of meadow, parkland and farmland - and the undulating Coln Valley and rushing waters of the River Coln.
Step out of Meadow View's front door and you’re straight into miles and miles of walking, including an idyllic 4- or 6-mile route to Bibury (famed for its Arlington Row cottages, possibly the most photographed tourist location in the Cotswolds!), where you can have a bite to eat at The Swan, The Catherine Wheel or in the café at Bibury Trout Farm.
If you’re staying with little ones, simply cross the road to a safe, secure and immaculate adventure playground, complete with picnic tables and benches. Then wander downhill to the River Coln, flanked by rolling hills that are home to flocks of sheep and herds of cows – a truly bucolic scene. If you’re lucky enough to catch a sunset, it’ll be one of the most beautiful you’re ever likely to see!
Head back up the road to the Coln Community Shop for a cuppa and a slice of some of the tastiest cake in the Cotswolds!
At the end of your day exploring the Cotswolds, return to Meadow View and Coln St Aldwyns, far from the madding crowds, with easy parking, peace and quiet and an immaculate and cosy home-from-home.
