About the property

Luxury 2 bedroom, 17th century property in quiet central town location

This recently restored apartment, formerly a school, dates back to the 17th century. It forms one corner of a hidden town centre courtyard garden, of which visitors have the use of a small outside terrace.

The accommodation consists of two double bedrooms (one of which may be configured as two single beds if required), large open plan sitting room with wood burning stove and bathroom.

There is off-street parking available for one car. Coxwell Street is one of the oldest streets in Cirencester, right in the town centre but remarkably quiet and peaceful.

Access: Access is via a flight of stairs - this may be a consideration for some people. The accommodation consists of two double bedrooms (one of which may be configured as two single beds if required), large open plan sitting room with wood burning stove and bathroom. There is off-street parking available for one car.

Bedrooms: The pictures here show both bedrooms as doubles however Bedroom 2 can be configured as two single beds if required - we require notice to change the beds.

Wonderful New Year's Eve Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Neil's apartment in Cirencester for a week across New Year's Eve 2016/2017 and had a thoroughly wonderful time. The visit was made so positive by a number of factors:

1. The responsiveness of Neil to our initial booking request and then communication, throughout, was excellent. We knew precisely what was happening, what was available to us, what was expected of us, where to go and how to get there at all times. All correspondence was very clear and we appreciated that greatly. Of particular value were the decorations to the parking spot - our GPS was somewhat confused and without Neil's written instruction we'd have been circling Cirencester for hours! It was also good to know, in advance, that the street on which the property sits is very narrow.

2. The apartment itself was impeccable, beautifully decorated and equipped with everything that we needed - and probably more. We spent a lot more time in the accommodation than we had initially expected to, simply because it was so comfortable and so pleasant.

3. Cirencester is a charming market town and the very centre of the town is a mere 5min (slow) walk from the apartment. There is a range of nice cafes, bars, restaurants and shops within short walking distance and we sampled many of them. The nearby Corinium Museum was a nice way to spend an hour or two and it was very easy to strike out into the fantastic countryside. Great apartment, great location.

One thing to be aware of - Cirencester is not an "open all hours" place so, if you're coming from a big city, be aware that things might close a little more early than you're used to. If you arrive with that in mind, you'll have a terrific time.

Superb property in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The period entrance hall sets the scene for this delightful

Period property.Coxwell Court is situated in the centre of town on a remarkably quiet street.The property has been

Refurbished to a high standard and is tastefully furnished.The open plan sitting room has lovely views over the courtyard gardens.It is difficult to believe the property is in the centre of town! The kitchen,although compact, is well equipped and had a tea tray laid ready for our arrival(and milk in the fridge)- a thoughtful gesture.The bed was very comfortable and dressed with crisp white bed linen.

The property is in a perfect location with many great places to eat and drink , just minutes away. There are also many wonderful independent shops to browse around.Ideally situated, this property is the perfect base to explore the Cotswolds .......stay and enjoy!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely remodeled flat. We found everything we needed and could walk to everything. We appreciated the kitchen being well stocked with kitchen items for us to cook with. We would have liked a couch that we didn't slide off of. Maybe one a little taller. The lady at the gate made sure we were able to park in the back and questioned us about who we were renting from. We did get locked out one night and had to come through the unit to the back to open it up. This place is good for adults but not sure about children. Seemed as though there were many retired folks living at the property. The property is well kept and the gardens are beautiful.

Gorgeous property/ gorgeous town

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a home base to tour the Cotswolds you really couldn't do much better than this flat. Cirencester is a lovely town with lots of great shops and pubs close by. Access to the Cotswolds from here is very easy with day trips being a snap. The property is as described and well-maintained. We've been to the UK many times and this was easily one of our favourite trips. This flat contributed greatly to our experience!

Gorgeous apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was lovely, bigger than it looks on the photos, with more than enough room for 4 of us.

Location was perfect for exploring the Cotswolds and a 2 minute walk into the centre of Cirencester.

As we were there over Easter, we enjoyed a cosy day in with the log burner on and Netflix on the TV.

Thank you for a great weekend!
