Manor Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 5 guests in 2 bedrooms

Welcome to Manor Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Manor Cottage is a quintessential Cotswold stone cottage, located in the large grounds of a beautiful manor house in the picturesque village of Poulton, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Although small, Poulton has a well-regarded pub, a village shop and Post Office, and there is a children's playground close to the cottage. The village is five miles away from the Roman town of Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds, and is also close to many other picture-postcard Cotswold villages, including Bibury, Barnsley and Eastleach, with the stunning Coln Valley just a short drive away. As well as being close to the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, Poulton is also well placed for exploring further afield places, such as Oxford, Bath, or even a day-trip into London.

This beautiful traditional cottage was fully refurbished by its owners in 2016, adding a lovely contemporary style that enhances the many character features, which include oak beams, flagstone floors, window seats and a beautiful real fire. This character is complemented by the cottage's modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV with DVD player, and a well presented kitchen.

Manor Cottage sleeps 4+1 guests, in two bedrooms (with the +1 on a full size day bed), with a lovely bathroom. There are beautiful enclosed gardens at the front and side of the property, and off street parking is available. Families or friends will find this lovely cottage perfect for a relaxing break, in a picturesque village, surrounded by the glorious Cotswold countryside.

manor cottage poulton

  • 5 of 5

Having travelled all over Europe these last years arriving and staying in this cottage in Poulton has been one of the nicest most relaxing enjoyable stays of all. We have been made to feel very welcome without been intrusive.

The standards of this cottage are of the highest quality and I would recommend this to ANYONE .

We have two dogs which have been made to feel equally at home so can also recommend this venue for people with animals .

All in all FANTASTIC

Other Activities:

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.

Car: Poulton is easily accessed by car, being located on the A417 and within four miles of the A419 and A429 (Fosse Way), which are two of the main roads through the Central Cotswolds.

Train: The nearest railway station to Poulton is Kemble (approximately ten miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of less than ninety minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 67 miles, approximately 90 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 83 miles, approximately 80 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 52 miles, approximately 85 minute drive.
