  • “The Henhouse is a lovely cottage and we will certainly be returning.”

    It is tastefully decorated and well equipped; we particularly enjoyed the quiet setting and seeing the hens, ponies and goats in the large enclosure next to the cottage. Less than a minute's walk away behind the Village Church there are some beautiful walks for dog walkers and countryside lovers, and in the other direction is the Village Pub, The Cat and Custard Pot, which is open all day, welcoming, with a varied menu of good quality food. ...

Shipton Moyne is well placed and in easy access to local attractions and Tetbury, Cirencester, Cheltenham and Oxford a bit further away but worth a visit.

The property

Welcome to the village of Shipton Moyne - a bit like Dibley from the famous TV show: beautiful, traditional and every inch your quintessential English village.

Impossibly ancient houses and cottages, smart, well-tended gardens, a thriving village community and one of the best named pubs in the land too (and it serves fine food too).

Your holiday cottage, gorgeously named The Henhouse is a joy of a place to stay.

Renovated completely from top to tail where space is a-plenty and extra details have been added for comfort, in fact you are are in for a treat.

You walk straight into a swish kitchen where you are greeted by a smart, pale units all under a granite surface, a heated flagstone floor beneath your feet and sweet views to the old henhouse (!!) where there are a small selection of fancy chickens, a few goats and some Shetland ponies, friendly neighbours over the fence of your garden.

There's all you need to whip up a storm in the kitchen, and a traditional oak dining table too.

Walk through to your living room with ample seating, a wood burning stove in fact all is very cosy thanks to underfloor heating.

Upstairs are two good sized bedrooms each with village views and each with ensuite showers, so no need to share here....

Outside is a good sized garden area with table and chairs.

We just loved the property and the location where there is plenty to do, if you want to, or where you can just play in and around the village in true peace!

Stunning.

About the location

TETBURY

Cirencester 10 miles.

Tetbury retains a wealth of character within its ancient streets. The town’s origins date back to 681, but it was during the Middle Ages that it flourished as one of the major markets for The Cotswold wool trade. Nowadays The Market Hall is still home to a busy general market every Wednesday, whilst the town as a whole is something of a mecca for antique hunters with several shops in the town and regular fairs in the vicinity. Closeby is the Forestry Commission’s Westonbirt Arboretum, one of the largest collections of rare shrubs and trees in Europe, whilst further afield (but still within easy driving distance) are the elegant Regency cities of Bath and Cheltenham, Shakespeare’s Stratford and other attractions such as the internationally renowned Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust.

Please note £25 per pet.
