Property Information

Somerford Cottage is a quintessential English country cottage set in the heart of a beautiful and classic Cotswold village, itself located in the southern Cotswolds. The property, which has a history dating back hundreds of years, was once part of the village's Manor House, offers lovely large rooms throughout, all presented in an attractive and stylish fashion, with careful attention given to mixing contemporary furniture with traditional cottage features. Of particular appeal is the spacious living area, which is light, airy and inviting. As one would expect with a property of such history there are delightful, mature gardens, which customers can enjoy (see below*), in fact the owners are able to offer seasonal 'home grown produce' to customers - wonderful!! Locally, the village of Great Somerford is a thriving community with an excellent local shop and The Volunteer pub both within a 5 minute walk. There is also the Somerford Arms in the next village of Little Somerford about a mile away, this has recently been refurbished and serves excellent food and real ales.We consider this holiday cottage as ideal for families or small groups who want to enjoy a traditional Cotswold location with good facilities nearby and good access to a wealth of local attractions. A real gem!

Customers have a private courtyard area surrounded by an historic wisteria (we were too early in spring to see it in full bloom!) and with a garden table and six chairs for al fresco dining. *There is also limited access to the part of the owners' main gardens, however please be aware that there may be certain times when the owners wish to enjoy privacy! The garden is located approx 10 paces across a short gravel driveway. Parents should note that there is a pond with fish and that children should not be left unattended at the pond. We ask customers to be considerate when using the garden both for the owners and also because they are of local importance from a floral perspective.

Any Day changeover, except July and August and school holidays, when changeovers must be on a Saturday. Heating and electricity included. Sorry No Pets. Children Welcome. Cot and High Chair, along with babybath available.  Maximum party size is 6 plus 1 infant in a cot. Whilst wifi is available at this cottage, please note: it is more than strong enough to check emails, websites etc but is not enough to stream films or other data.
Off Street parking for two cars, parking for a 3rd car is easily found in the village. Starter basket of logs supplied, more available at cost. Seasonal Vegetables also available on request, to be discussed directly with the owner in advance of arrival. * Please note as this property is part of the National Gardens Scheme, access to the garden must be arranged with the owner in advance, and understandably this means ball games cannot be permitted. However there is a playground and access to open fields within a short walking distance which the owner will happily direct you to. Please bare in mind you are within a residential area and late evenings should be considerate of neighbours. No extra guests permitted.

Map & Local Information

Great Somerford is a small village set on the edge of the Wiltshire and Gloucestershire broder. It has some very beautiful buildings/houses and is surrounded by typical open countryside, although not particularly undulating. The village has a pub and local shop selling basic provisions. 

Nearby is the market town of Malmesbury, which is the oldest borough in England, which is approximately 3 miles away and provides full selection of cafes, shops and restaurants as well as other amenities. There you will see the magnificent 800 year old Norman Abbey built for the Benedictine Monastery which was founded in the 7th Century, also the lovely Market Cross. During your stay you must certainly visit the famous Abbey House Gardens that have been featured on television, and then take a stroll along the 'river walk'.

Set on a hill, circled by the river Avon, the imposing Norman Abbey dominates the skyline. The town flourished as a weaving centre from the 15th century and became known for its fine silk and lace. The fine 15th century Market Cross, an Old Courtroom, narrow medieval streets and a river walk, show hints of a rich history dating back a thousand years.
