The property

This stone-fronted cottage, Leys cottage, is located in the picturesque village of Lower Swell in the lovely Cotswolds.

This charming home, located near an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is an ideal retreat for four friends or a family looking for a stylish hideaway.

Enter the porch to kick off your boots, ready for an adventure, and admire the chocolate box cottage with its pale grey windows and door.

Discover the sitting area, which features an inglenook fireplace with a woodburning stove, plush sofas, and a Smart TV with full Sky package and Gigaclear ultra-fast broadband .

Moving through the home, you'll come across the spacious kitchen/diner, which is equipped with an electric oven with halogen hob, dishwasher and fridge.

Set for four at the dining table once dinner is served and toast your getaway with a bottle of wine.

To keep your holiday clothing fresh, there is a utility room with a washer/dryer, as well as a fridge/freezer and microwave.

Open the patio doors to explore the lovely, enclosed garden, which includes a lawned space with seating to soak up the sun and a bar b q for al-fresco dining.

As the sky darkens, retreat inside for a soak in the ground-floor bathroom's tub or a rinse in the overhead shower.

Climb the stairs to find the master bedroom with king-size bed, TV and an en-suite shower room, and the second bedroom again with king-size bed and hanging rails to keep your clothes tidy.

Awaken to a cup of tea and breakfast and later stroll across to the Golden Ball bar to soak up the pleasant ambiance.

Take advantage of your surroundings by exploring the rolling countryside of the Cotswolds on foot or by bike, and paying a visit to Bourton House Garden, a 1700’s manor.

Animal enthusiasts may want to visit Fairytale Farm to pet fuzzy mammals or Crocodiles of the World to be surprised by reptiles.

The historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is only a mile away, where you can view the unspoiled countryside from the market square, taste unusual eateries, and marvel at art at the Fosse Gallery.

Choose Leys Cottage for your next vacation in Gloucestershire for a much-needed break.

About the location



Surrounded by rolling countryside this is quintessential Cotswolds in many ways. A cracking local pub along with a host of beautiful buildings including a pretty church.
For those who like to walk, you can reach Stow via a path which goes straight into the heart of the town all in about 30 mins (about 1 mile away). Stow, of course, is one of the Cotswolds most famous market towns, renowned for its quality shops, cafes and restaurants. Very much a working town, there is a market day each month as well some excellent little festivals which pepper the year.

Please Note:
- the cottage requires a Good House-Keeping Bond of £300.00
- due to the age of the cottage the stairs are slightly steeper than you may normally experience, and are probably not suitable for young children or those with mobility issues
