The property

Halfpenny Cottage is a charming semi-detached house in the Gloucestershire town of Lechlade.

Ideally situated on the banks of the Thames, just outside the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Halfpenny Cottage is an excellent alternative for couples or a small family of four.

You'll feel right at home in the bright and airy living area, where you can kick-back and relax on the plush sofa and watch your favourite show.

In the fully-equipped kitchen/dining area, prepare your favourite foods to enjoy at the dining table for four over a bottle of wine, or alfresco in your very own private garden.

The ground level is completed by a convenient boot room and a cloakroom.

After a long day of sightseeing, head up to the first floor, where you can relax in one of the two attractively appointed bedrooms, a king-size and a double, both with lots of storage space and access to a sleek shower room.

Take a stroll through the town, where you can eat at the Riverside, The Swan Inn and Trout Inn, stock up on necessities at the convenience store, take a boat trip on the River Thames, visit the Cotswold Christmas Shop, picnic in Riverside Park, or continue on to Buscot to explore the fascinating National Trust site of Buscot Park, which is located nearby.

You'll next come to Cirencester to check out the Corinium Museum, the open-air swimming pool, the historic Amphitheatre, or to put your skills to the test at the world-class Cirencester Golf Club.

Oxford, with its famed university, castle and prison, distillery, museum, and two Michelin-starred restaurants (Magdalen Arms and Pompette), is a little further away.

Halfpenny Cottage is the starting point of your journey to the Cotswolds.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location

LECHLADE-ON-THAMES

Cirencester 13 miles; Oxford 24.5 miles.

The popular riverside market town of Lechlade lies on the edge of the southern Cotswolds and has many traditional pubs, antique shops, a Londis and a Co-operative including a fuel station. Lechlade is also home to the infamous Christmas shop (“Where it’s Christmas all year round”) and offers many river-based activities with River Thames trips available throughout the summer season. Lechlade is steeped in history and is an excellent base for many Cotswold and River Thames walks, including the Thames Path, plus excellent fly fishing is also on offer and the town plays host to many festivals throughout the year, including the annual three day Lechlade Music Festival, featuring over 80 bands and performers. Nearby, The Cotswold Water Park is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles, made up of 140 lakes; an area larger than the Norfolk Broads. Britain's largest water park, it offers a wide range of activities, including boating, water skiing, fishing (some of the finest trout fishing in the country), cycling, walking, golf and horse riding. Cirencester, known as The Capital of the Cotswolds is just a short drive away and boasts a rich and well-preserved heritage with a Roman Amphitheatre, Corinium Museum and Abbey Grounds. The Brewery Arts Centre offers visitors a unique arts and crafts shopping experience or visit the Bathurst Estate, home to the Cirencester Polo Club where some of the highest level of polo can be seen. Oxford, the oldest University City in England, boasts interesting Botanical Gardens, museums and libraries, and plays host to many festivals and markets throughout the year. The ancestral home of Winston Churchill and the World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace is just a short drive away, where many lovely walks can be enjoyed around the landscaped parkland. Within an hour's drive is Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, many unspoilt Cotswold villages and the Malvern Hills, all of which are well worth a visit.
