Fairview Cottage is a truly stunning Cotswold stone cottage, perfectly located in the heart of the peaceful, picturesque village of Longborough, two miles north of the famous market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, and surrounded by the stunning countryside of the North Cotswolds. Longborough sits on the side of a hill, with lovely views over the Evenlode Valley and, despite being a small village, it is fortunate to have a pub, a village shop, cafe and a local farm shop. Many beautiful countryside walks can be accessed directly from the cottage, and it is ideally located for exploring the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.
The cottage has recently been fully refurbished by its owners, who have expertly combined contemporary style and furnishings with the cottage's traditional character, which includes original oak beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a beautiful inglenook fireplace, with a wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a curved TV and a well presented kitchen.
Fairview Cottage sleeps eight people, in four bedrooms, with three bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is in an annexe in the back garden, with its own bathroom. There is a lovely garden at the rear of the property and quiet on street parking is available outside or close to the cottage. Fairview Cottage is perfect for an extended family or for a group of friends looking for a relaxing break in a stunning cottage, in the heart of one the Cotswold's loveliest villages.

Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than eight guests at the property.

Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including narrow and steep stairs, low beams and multiple floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. In particular, guests should note that the second floor eaves bedroom has low, sloping ceilings.
The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
Hen, Stag and other same sex parties
Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at Fairview Cottage.
If you would like to enquire as part of a same sex group, please contact us, as these may be accepted at the sole discretion of the property owner. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
