We had a fantastic Holiday. There were 4 Adults and 2 dogs in the party. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely warm house and the basic assentials, all we needed for a nice cup of tea and some lovely shortbread, they had even given us some all butter croissants, which was a lovely treat, we are on holiday after all. The owner came to visit us to make sure everything was alright. We did have an issue with the log burning fire, however after contacting the owner it was soon established ...

The owner came to visit us to make sure everything was alright. We did have an issue with the log burning fire, however after contacting the owner it was soon established that the local jackdaws had built there nest in the chimney but the very next day we had a visit from the local chimney sweep and the fire was lit that night, superb with a glass of single malt. All in all a wonderful holiday.

Rural England at its best!
The Rectory in Shipton Moyne is an attractive cottage set in the grounds of a magnificent Cotswolds' Manor, in the heart of a beautiful village, located just Outside Tetbury.
The building has undergone a total refurbishment and the result is a very smart, characterful holiday home that is both smart and cosy in equal measure.
The kitchen is well equipped for a big cooking feast, the Living Room warm and welcoming with its wood burning stove, while upstairs are two large bedrooms and two ensuite shower rooms with views to the church and village.
Outside is a true Cotswolds gem of a village, quite leterally stunning and with a pub to match both in quality but also in name - The Cat and Custard Pot - how terribly 'Cotswolds'!
Beyond are a wealth of things to do, places to visit: Tetbury is a few mins down the road, Bath and Cheltenham about 25 mins away.

About the location
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.
