    “We were six schoolfriends from Lincolnshire spending our annual reunion in The Old Swan.”


    The house itself was perfect; comfortable, clean and very tastefully decorated, superbly equipped even down to headed notepaper. The village itself is charming, and it's residents extremely friendly. There are many delightful walks from the doorstep, and we particularly enjoyed visiting Luckington. Despite being a village, Sherston has a Co-op and various places to eat, all of which we can recommend. I have been to many Sykes properties over the years, but this was certainly one of my favourites, and I would recommend it very highly.

About the location


Chippenham 11 miles; Cirencester 13 miles; Bath 23 miles; Tetbury 5 miles.

Dating back to the Iron Age and reputedly the oldest borough in England, the pretty market town of Malmesbury is located on a hilltop in the southern Cotswolds. Malmesbury is steeped in history and offers visitors over 400 listed buildings, a 15th century Market Cross, a ruined 7th century Benedictine abbey, an annual carnival and many independent shops, cafes and traditional pubs. Abbey House Gardens, home to 'The Naked Gardeners' can also be found in Malmesbury (Note: The gardeners are clothed during normal opening hours) and the annual Womad Music Festival is close by at Charlton Park. The area offers many country houses, including Rodmarton Manor and Gardens, and Chavenage House, a fine example of a Cotswold manor unchanged for 400 years. Just a short drive away is The Cotswold Water Park, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles and offering a wide range of activities, including boating, waterskiing, fishing, cycling, golf and horse riding, plus Bath, Cirencester and Tetbury are all within easy reach and well worth a visit.

Please be advised: This property is only suitable for a maximum of 8 guests including infants, due to the size and seating arrangements of the downstairs areas.
