About the location


Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stow-on-the-Wold 5 miles.

Naunton is positioned on either sides of the River Windrush, making it very picturesque as any of its neighbours in the hills between Stow and Cheltenham. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book as Niwetone. The hill overlooking the town is great for climbing up and viewing the church and the village. The Black Horse Inn is the local pub which provides great views into the heart of the Cotswolds.

Note: The lawn area is shared with the neighbouring property.

Note: Horses can be stabled in the paddocks by prior arrangement with the owners.

Note: Check-in is after 4pm and check-out is by 10am.

Note: The property’s garden is not enclosed and as the shared lawn area is raised above the patio, young children should be supervised outside at all times due to the drop between the two levels.

Note: The first-floor of the property is located in the eaves and therefore the rooms on this level have sloping ceilings which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility.

Note: Hetty’s Stables is a semi-detached property in the grounds of Aylworth Cottage where the owners live.

Note: No stag/hen or similar parties.

Note: Max occupancy 7 adults(inc children) + 1 Infant

Please note the barn has a £300 Good Housekeeping Bond
