Property Information

The Malt House is the sort of place where you arrive and never want to leave. From the moment you walk in, the atmosphere, the character, comfort and charm give it a magical feel a truly unique sense that you are enjoying a one-off holiday home. Sitting in a timeless village in the heart of the Cotswolds, you are in the midst of the most attractive part of the region. You are just 10 mins drive from Burford and no more than 15 mins from notable places such as Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water giving you an excellent base for getting out and about. However, we suspect you won't want to leave this venerable old house - a proper home from home, where you will find some artfull touches to make it a one-off. There is little that this holiday home doesn't have, it has, amongst many other things: a pool, Sky Sports, multiple woodburners, a piano(!) a conservatory, an enormous garden (even a cutting flower garden for you to help yourself), three of the highest quality bathrooms we have EVER seen and enough rooms to keep everyone happy. The owner has the most wonderful taste and she has made this house unique, very much a home.
Down the lane just 10 min walk away is a good local pub and about 10 mins drive away is The Wheatsheaf  at Northleach (the best gastro pub in the Cotswolds reputedly). If Daylesford is your thing that's just 20 mins away. Of course this assumes you want to get out!  For families, friends or groups this is OUTSTANDING choice of self catering accommodation. Heavenly!

Map & Local Information

Windrush is a truly magical village. Almost untouched and filled with period cottages, houses and buildings, it is a rare chance to step back in time and enjoy what is quintessential about the Cotswolds. As you'd expect there are beautiful walks all around, especially those which follow the River Windrush. At the far end of the village (about 1.5m from the cottage) is The Fox Inn, which is owned by a traditional local brewery and serves beer and wine and food. Its location sits overlooking the river and it is beautifully attractive.

The village is about 3 miles from Burford, roughly 5 mins away (by car) and in Burford you will find an excellent selection of cafes, antique shops and basic facilities incl a Co Op shop. In the opposite direction is Northleach, about 8 mins away, smaller and even more quaint but which has one of the Cotswolds' leading gastro pubs The Wheatsheaf. If you do decide to test this pub, we'd suggest you book in advance or check for availability to be certain and to avoid disappointment.

As well as the walks, the shops (Stow on the Wold and Cirencester are very close by) you are spoilt for choice whether it be for children - Cotswold Wildlife Park is about 10 mins away and the Cotswolds Farm Park is about 20 mins away, or for adults you have a spectacular array of choice of National Trust houses and gardens all within a reasonable drive.

Whatever the reason you're coming, this is a great choice!!
