Lavender Cottage, is a true favourite with us at Manor Cottages!
A period property that is so welcoming when you arrive and one which has retained its charm thanks to the care the owners show - unsurprising given that the cottage has been in the family for generations!
It is kept spotless inside and out and styled very much in keeping with the building's history and style - it's appeal is that it is cosy, warm and beautifully comfortable.
The rooms throughout are all a good size, light and bright; in our opinion an ideal choice for a family getaway.
It's a very peaceful location, it has a large garden to the rear which has fruit trees, a large lawn and a variety of places to sit and relax, it's a little gem.
One thing that caught our eye (strange admittedly...!) was the fantastic vegetable garden across the road, it's a work of art!
Situated on the edge of a peaceful village and surrounded by some of the most beautiful Northern Cotswolds countryside, this holiday cottage offers an excellent quality of accommodation across two floors, packed with period features as well all of the modern conveniences you'd expect.
We highly recommend this cottage, it offers a very desirable destination and an ideal base for a Cotswold holiday.
