Even before you enter Molly's Cottage you will begin to appreciate what a lovely cottage this is, as you take in the lovely view of St Peter's church, (which sits just behind the cottage) and the rolling hills of the Windrush valley beyond.
The owners have gone to a huge amount of trouble to create a lovely holiday home, full of old world charm combined with a cool and contemporary finish.
You will enter the cottage via the rear door (passing the washer / dryer in the utilities area).
The kitchen diner then greets you:simply but beautifully presented with a range of built in cupboards and units lining two sides of the room, containing all the facilities you could need to create some mouth watering dishes to be enjoyed around the farmhouse kitchen table, lined on 2 sides by cosy bench seating; a lovely place to spend a few hours and catch up on the day's events.
As you pass into the entrance hall you will notice one of the cottage's more quirky features; a viewing window set into the floor - but more of that in a moment.
You then enter into one of the cottage's beautifully appointed lounges, with sumptuous sofas and a lovely log-burner, which would help to ramp up the atmosphere on chilly winter evenings.
Back in the entrance hall you will find stairs leading both up, and down.
Heading downstairs (and please do so with caution as these stairs are steeper than you might normally find and a foldaway stairgate has been installed at the top of the stairs to ensure the safety of toddlers), you will find the second lounge, again lovingly appointed with comfortable seating and another log-burner; ideal if you want peace and quiet.Going back up to the entrance hall and taking the stairs to the first floor (and again due to the age of the cottage these stairs are steeper than normal) you will find the sleeping accommodation, comprising of 2 double bedrooms (one with a standard double and one with a king size double) and a single bedroom.
You will also find the beautifully appointed family bathroom.
Outside the cottage you have the fully enclosed patio, furnished with table and chairs, and it really is a beautiful setting in which to enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining.
If you can tear yourself away from this superb base, then why not take a stroll across the fields and enjoy the hospitality of The Fox in Great Barrington, a lovely, traditional riverside inn which lies less than1 mile away from the cottage.
Venturing a little further afield, you will be able to enjoy some of the most beautiful towns and villages that the Cotswolds has to offer, including Bourton on the Water (6 miles), Stow-on-the Wold (10 miles), Burford (4 miles) and the historic city of Oxford, which can be reached in about 40 minutes.
Perfectly located for discovering all that this part of the Cotswolds has to offer, Molly's Cottage is the ideal base for friends and family alike at any time of year.
