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.

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.
