Why Alex Cowan chose Lower Slaughter

Quintessentially Cotswold, Pound Cottage is nestled within one of the United Kingdom’s most premiere villages and is the perfect place for your stay.

With a myriad of character features that one would expect from a 200 year-old Cotswold cottage, infused with a contemporary feel, the cottage oozes a charm and sense of luxury.

It provides all the comforts you would expect from a boutique hotel but with the advantage of a whole house to share and enjoy.

Whether you’re curled up on the sofa with a glass of wine in front of the fire, soaking in the marble bathroom after a long walk or cooking in the contemporary kitchen, the cottage offers unparalleled comfort and style with ample accommodation for 6 guests.

With 3 double bedrooms all with en-suite, the cottage is the perfect space to enjoy your stay in the Cotswolds.

What makes this cottage unique

Nestled in the centre of Lower Slaughter, a few steps from the enchanting River Eye, it's no surprise that this beautiful village is visited by travellers from across the globe.

The walks are sublime; Copse Hill road runs through the village and was voted Britain's most romantic street.

Surrounded by outstanding natural beauty, world-class hotels and a charming village pub, Pound Cottage is positioned in the perfect location.

The beauty of staying at Pound Cottage is that when the visitors have to leave Lower Slaughter at the end of the day, you don't!

Charming village, charming house.

  • 4 of 5

Lower Slaughter is a picture-perfect home base for your time in the Cotswolds. Charming village with a very quaint feel. Loads of great walks literally right on your doorstep. House was superbly located right on the village green. An issue with housekeeping was never resolved (foot prints on a sticky wooden floor we'd never walked on) but a bit of vacuuming and cleaning of my own and we overcame this issue. Bathrooms are of a great size for such a period home and the kitchen was well-equipped. Washer/dryer is tiny so be prepared to do a few loads. And all of Alex's recommendations for eating were spot-on....great food to be had in the area.

As close to perfection as it gets

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is a bit of an understatement...wonderful blending of the charm of the older and ease of modern conveniences. The location is ideal for seeing the nearly 30 National Trust properties within an hour and Lower Slaughter is a peaceful place to relax. Owner has done a very nice job of providing everything needed to make the stay comfortable. Wonderful kitchen with dining area opening to patio and back garden. Owner went out of his way to answer questions and be of assistance. Alex, thanks for making it such a wonderful visit - everything is first class and we would recommend highly to anyone.
