Hillview is a Grade II listed Cotswold stone cottage c.1690 situated in the pretty village of Lower Swell. The property, now under new ownership, has been carefully renovated and refurbished whilst retaining all of its period charm.
The property is within walking distance of the traditional village pub, 'The Golden Ball' (winner of the 'Best Neighbourhood Pub of the Year' 2012).
Hillview is well placed for visiting the local villages and market towns of the Cotswolds. The market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, with its wealth of pubs, restaurants, antique shops, supermarket and independent retailers, is only a mile away. The renowned villages of Bourton-on-the-Water, The Slaughters, Cirencester and Burford are within easy reach, as are towns such as Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.
Sezincote's magnificent house and romantic water gardens are three miles away and Batsford Arboretum (Britain's most visited arboretum), just four miles and is a spectacular sight, particularly in the autumn.
