Our family of 4, including 2 kids 7 and 9, had a wonderful time in this lovely cottage. From the photos, the main room looks rather big and cold, but in person it was charming. The renovation of this very old cottage was beautifully done -- we particularly appreciated the lighting setup, which turned on various combinations of lights with the flick of a switch. The kitchen was very nicely equipped, and the bedrooms were comfortable. We liked the quietness of the village, and its location near many of the more popular name attractions. We would return in a heartbeat.
The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
