Charming 300 year old detached cottage - beautiful Cotswolds home swap

Our charming 300 year old cottage is located in a pretty Cotswold village. There are so many picturesque villages and wonderful walks surrounding us here; and we are also not far from the historical towns of Cirencester and Cheltenham. Oxford is an hour away.

Our cottage is clean & orderly with three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchen, snug, large sitting room and a downstairs loo. It has a garden, driveway, garage/play room and a shed where the bikes are.

About the location

We are located in a pretty Cotswold village. There is a pub 200 metres down the road and plenty of fields with walk routes.

There are so many picturesque villages and wonderful walks surrounding us here. I'm not sure where to start! There's Bibury which dates back to the Saxon times, Meysey Hampton, the Ampneys, Lower & Upper Slaughter - to name but a few.

There is also the nearby Cotswold Water Park for water activities such as sailing. There are plenty of activities for children here too, eg. raft building, stand-up paddle boarding.

The closest shops are in the nearby market town of Fairford, a 10 minute drive away. It has a Post Office, Londis, Co-op, cafes & restaurants. Cirencester, which was an important city during the Roman era, is only 20 minutes away and is more substantial. There's also Cheltenham which is 40 minutes, Bath & Gloucester. Oxford is an hour's drive from here.

London is 1.5 hours away if you feel inclined for a day trip.

You'll probably need to have your own transport to housesit or house swap here.

We have two lovely independent cats.
