The property

Horseshoe Cottage is a delightful, traditional Cotswold stone cottage, tucked away down a quiet lane in Lower Oddington, an idyllic village just a two miles from the attractive market town of Stow-on-the-Wold.

This cottage really is the perfect, romantic getaway for couples.

The ground floor accommodation is arranged in one, open plan room, comprising of a modern kitchen, complete with all the appliances that you might need for a relaxing break, and breakfast bar, where you can enjoy a leisurely morning coffee, or a more substantial and beautifully prepared meal.

The sitting area is the perfect place to relax and unwind; either day-dreaming in front of the glorious log-burner, or kick back and relax with a good book.

On the first floor you will find the beautiful, but very simply furnished whitewashed bedroom, giving the space a light and airy feel.

You will also find the luxurious en-suite bathroom; complete with a cleverly designed roll-top bath and rainhead shower.

To the front of the cottage the outside space is limited, but with sufficient space for guests to enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining, or just a glass of something bubbly!

If self-catering isn't your thing, then don't worry; two hundred yards away you have The Fox Inn (though at the time of writing this pub is closed for re-development, with a view to it re-opening in 2022).

Alternatively one mile away, in the adjoining village of Upper Oddington, you find the highly regarded Horse and Groom.

If you intend to explore the area, then start in Stow on the Wold.

At nearly 800ft, Stow is the highest of the Cotswold towns, located on the Roman Fosse Way and at the point where several roads meet, hence an important trading centre.

It has a long history, it probably dates from a prehistoric fortified settlement on top of the hill, and had a special importance in the English Civil War - the names of many of the pubs and hotels bearing testament to this.

Travel approximately 6 miles, and you will find yourself in the picturesque town of Bourton on the Water, frequently referred to as the Venice of the Cotswolds.

Other notable towns only a short drive from the cottage include Burford, Broadway and Woodstock (the location of Blenheim Palace, and definitely worth a visit.

All in all Horseshoe Cottage is the perfect location for couples looking for a few days peace and quiet.
