This is a very special and Award Winning holiday home.
Set in the heart of Moreton in Marsh, Cotswold House is very much the grand (and perfect) Cotswold Retreat, presented beautifully and stylishly with huge, spacious rooms, fabulous 'floor to ceiling' windows and all within a hop, skip and jump of Moreton's many restaurants, pubs and shops.
In fact we'd go as far to say this is one of the most unique and attractive holiday houses anywhere in the Cotswolds.
We absolutely adore it and it appears so too do previous guests who voted it the Cotswolds' Best Holiday Cottage at the Cotswolds' Concierge Awards!
The building dates back to the early 19th Century and while many features remain, today it is fitted with some stunning touches - oak flooring, top of the range kitchen (including Aga) and some lovely bathrooms.
Each of the rooms are unique, with a flair that demonstrates the owner's creativity and film-making background!
Downstairs the ground-floor rooms have a lovely flow, perfect for entertaining or simply 'hanging out' before you pootle off to Moreton.
(You can stay in and play snooker or darts if you prefer).
Upstairs the bedrooms, which are spread across two floors, are a joy.
There is ample off street parking, plus you're just 2mins from the train station which whisks up from London in about 1 hr 25 mins.
This is an excellent holiday cottage in every respect, perfect for a large family or for a large group who fancy a home for a 'proper' holiday or equally perfect for a short weekend trip to the Cotswolds.

The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh lies on the Fosse Way Roman Road in the northern Cotswolds and boasts many elegant 18th century buildings, which are home to traditional inns, serving real ales and home-cooked food, tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops to suit all tastes. It also boasts it's own train station and lies on the intersection of the Paddington rail line from London. The town hosts the Moreton-In-Marsh Show, one of the UK's largest one-day agricultural shows, as well as the Moreton Beer Festival, an annual French Market, and a large outdoor market every Tuesday. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of the town, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close by. Less than five miles away is Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town in the Cotswolds. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market.

It lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. Also within reach is the spa town of Cheltenham. This town boasts an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, and is famous for its horseracing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase.
