Oak framed 2 Bedroom Cottage overlooking lovely gardens and lake

The Cottage at Nell House is a beautiful oak framed conversion sleeping 4 in two bedrooms.

The village has a "pub" within walking distance and is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds in your car. It is a 90 minute drive from Heathrow Airport.

The cottage has an open plan kitchen living area on the ground floor, with a well equipped kitchen including dishwasher and microwave, and a seating area including two sofas and large TV. There is a twin bedroom on the ground floor as well as a toilet and shower room. The entire upstairs floor is an en-suite double bedroom with separate seating area, sofa and TV. The staircase is open to the ground floor.

The cottage sits in the landscaped grounds of Nell House, with a large decking area, gas BBQ, and outdoor seating for 4. It overlooks the lake and is surrounded by wildlife such as moorhens, ducks, fish and if you're lucky deer and a kingfisher.

There are extensive grounds including a croquet lawn and fields with farm animals.

A great base for a lovely family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we entered the driveway we knew we had picked a great location for a week in The Cotswolds. James and Jo were very welcoming and the cottage was well equipped with everything you could need. The gardens are beautiful and great for the children to explore whilst you enjoy the views of the pond from the decking. The location is so convenient for exploring the many attractions that the Cotswolds have to offer. A fantastic week - only wish we could have stayed longer!

Beautiful and spacious, very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute. The cottage was amazing and just perfect. Being close to Fairford was an added bonus to us as we love the planes. We'll definitely try and come back next year

lovely country cottage in beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the open plan cottage. It suited our needs perfectly as far as location and accommodation. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. We did find that we had to keep the heating turned up high as most of the heat went upstairs. (It must be said it was November). The actual location of the cottage is an idyllic country setting and the views over the pond are beautiful. Everything has been provided to ensure the enjoyment of your stay.

The owners are nearby and are very friendly and helpful.

I am quite sure that we will book this property again in the future.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

You really couldn't find a more beautiful place to stay. Jo was so welcoming and helpful and we loved exploring the grounds and surrounding areas. A nature lover's paradise. We liked nearby Highworth too with its interesting shops and historic church. We felt so much at home here, and would love to come back one day. Thank you James, Jo and girls.

Perfect spot for a real break

  • 5 of 5

We've truly enjoyed our stay in the cottage at Nell House. The place is very peaceful, surroundings are beautiful. Hannington village,as James put it, very sleepy! Which was exactly what we were looking for. Good spot for nice day trips to Bath, Stonehenge, London and good walks/cycle tours in the beautiful nature. We had the unique experience of visiting the crop cycle which appeared right in Hannington during our stay in the cottage. A mind-puzzling experience, which we won't quickly forget. The cottage itself is very comfortable and cosy. Atmosphere was warm and very welcoming by our hosts. Thanks for the lovely time we had!

The Cottage at Nell House is situated on the edge of the Cotswolds close to both Cirencester (the 'Capital of the Cotswolds') and the Cotswold Water Park.

Although situated in a picturesque quiet rural village, there are plenty of attractions only a short drive away.

The beautiful market town of Cirencester has lovely shops, restaurants, pubs and markets. There is also the Corinium Museum.

Fairford Royal International Air Tattoo is in July annually. It is a huge event and we are only a short drive or cycle away. As we are so close, you also get to see many of the planes without having to leave the garden!

Swindon Designer Outlet has a huge selection of designer shops and reduced prices. As it is inside it also makes an excellent rainy day excursion!

STEAM is situated next to the Designer Outlet and is a lovely museum detailing the history of the Great Western trains.

Westonbirt Arboretum has thousands of trees and some wonderful walks.

Lechlade-on-Thames has the unusual Christmas Shop, open most of the year, and the beautiful River Thames.

Stow-on-the-Wold is full of quaint tea shops and old pubs. There are lovely, individual shops there.

Birdland Park and Gardens is a good family trip. It is located in the picturesque town of Bourton-on-the-Water which is also home to a model village.

Cotswold Wildlife Park, near Burford, is a great day out. There is a brilliant giraffe house where you stand level with the animals' heads and can watch them eating.

The beautiful city of Bath with its wonderful architecture, Roman Baths, and fascinating shops is definitely worth a trip.

Chedworth Roman Villa has some beautifully preserved mosaics and is set in lovely countryside.

Burford town has some lovely old pubs, a beautiful river and shops.

Fairford is small but well worth a visit. It has a fantastic 15th Centuary church which is the only parish church in the country to have a complete set of late medieval glass.

The Living Rainforest is a lovely half-day trip. The variety of plants and birds is amazing and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful.

Oxford is a busy, vibrant university town. Apart from the large selection of shops and restaurants there is the Ashmolean Museum, the Bodleian Library, Oxford Castle (ruins), the Radcliffe Camera, the Oxford University Press Museum, University of Oxford Botanic Garden, the various colleges and churches, University Museum of Natural History, and the Bridge of Sighs, to name but a few!

Bristol is about 1 hour away. It has a large, out of town shopping centre, Cribbs Causeway, as well as 'in town' shops like Cabot Circus. Bristol Zoo is another favourite trip out and houses some gorillas. @tBristol is a fantastic hands on science museum.

Cheltenham is home to horse racing, as well as being a beautiful regency town.

Golf courses are plentiful in the area. The nearest is Wragbarn, but slightly further afield are Bowood, Frilford Heath, and the Oxford Golf Club. There is an unusual golf course in Minchinhampton, where you have to play while avoiding the cattle who have the run of the course.
