The property

The Tap Room is a charming Grade II listed cottage in the much loved Cotswold village of Kingham, one of the most desirable culinary destinations in the Cotswolds and home to The Big Feastival weekend in August.

The Wild Rabbit, an award-winning pub, is moments from the cottage and the Daylesford Estate is less than two miles away, making it an ideal lunch stop on a country walk.

Many of the picturesque villages and market towns of the North Cotswolds are close by, including Bourton-on-the-Water, The Slaughters and Stow-on-the-Wold. Kingham has a train station with direct train links to London and Oxford, making further afield destinations easily accessible without a car. Originally the village cider store, this wonderful 17th century cottage boasts many character features including its Cotswold stone exterior, the striking Cotswold stone walls inside and its lovely exposed beams.

These features are complemented by modern facilities which include wireless internet access, a Smart TV with a DVD player, a well-equipped kitchen and underfloor heating throughout the ground floor. The Tap Room sleeps four guests, in two stylish bedrooms, with a spacious family bathroom.

There is a beautiful wrap-around garden and off-street parking is available for two cars.

The property is perfect for a small family or a group of friends seeking a relaxing getaway surrounded by the glorious Cotswold countryside.

The Tap Room enjoys an idyllic corner plot with its main entrance being via the back door.

Stairs lead up from the dining area to a spacious first floor landing in the eaves, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: A characterful room with an exposed Cotswold stone wall and original oak beams.

It contains a king size divan bed, a large cupboard with a hanging rail and an Ottoman with two drawers.

The Velux window overlooks the garden below and has a blackout curtain; Bedroom 2: At the opposite end of the landing is the second bedroom which has two single divan beds, an Ottoman with two drawers and a cupboard for storage. The garden is accessed via the back door which opens onto a patio area with smart Rattan armchairs and a matching glass-topped table.

Mostly laid to lawn, the garden is bordered by attractive shrubs and fragrant lavender, and two mature trees provide shade in the sunshine.

A charcoal barbecue is available in the summer months as well.
