    “Really liked it.”

    Great location. Lacked a little bit of finesse - no welcome note, bottle of wine you typically get at such places - but overall good.

The River Leach runs past the village and there are an abundance of walks from the doorstep of the cottage.

Southrop is well placed for exploring the wider Cotswold region, with Burford, the 'gateway to the Cotswolds'; close by, and Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds, just 12 miles away.

About the location

Southrop is a picturesque village and civil parish in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. It is situated on the River Leach which is a tributary of the Thames.

It has all the ingredients of a quintessential English village including a 12th century Church adjacent to the Manor House and a pub on the green.

The village has a restaurant called The Swan, as well as a shop and post office, with a village fete taking place there every June which encompasses many talents like a Dog Show and Coconut Shy.

In amongst the quaint setting of the village is a village hall utilised by the local community for taking part in village groups or children’s parties.
