Mayfly Cottage is locted on the edge of the village of Coln St Alwyns, which itself is located about approx 5 miles from Burford and Cirencester. The countryside is renowned as particularly attractive and there are many walks for you to enjoy. One of particular note is the walk from Coln to Bibury (about 2 miles).
Coln has a very good pub The New Inn and there is also a good Village Store selling the basics. There are a few more pubs in Bibury, along with the National Trust Arlington Row (historic houses) and the Trout Farm which is good fun for the children. Burford is, of course, very well known and worth a visit, while Cirencester is similar but bigger and has all the main shops and stores.
Nearby Attractions include a host of beautiful villages and walks found in and around the Southern Cotswolds. This is possibly one of the most attractive regions of the Cotswolds - off the beaten track but very accessible. Bath, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Cotswold Water Park are all near.
