The Old Band Room is a traditional Cotswold stone property, sympathetically restored with a wealth of character features and an interesting history, having once been used to practice in by the military bands of the surrounding villages. The cottage is located in the heart of the popular and picturesque village of Naunton, which is set well away from busy roads and benefits from a good village pub, a golf course and many beautiful walks straight from the doorstep. The market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and the village of Bourton-on-the-Water are both within six miles, with their wide range of pubs, shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Naunton is also within easy reach of many tourist destinations, including Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
The cottage has lots of traditional character, including oak beams, wooden floors and exposed Cotswold stone walls. Complementing these character features are modern facilities, including ultra-fast broadband, underfloor heating in the downstairs areas and three Freeview TVs (two with DVD players) as well as a well presented kitchen with Nespresso coffee maker.
The Old Band Room sleeps a maximum of five people (4 adults and 1 child under 12), in three bedrooms with two bathrooms. There is a lovely garden just across the bridle path from the cottage, which sits on the river Windrush that runs through the village, and quiet, on street parking is available close to the cottage. The Old Band Room is perfect for families or small groups of friends looking for a peaceful break in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds.
