Set within the peaceful backwaters of a traditional Cotswold village, brimming with character making this a simply perfect base for couples to explore the area whatever the time of year.
Brimming with historic character, this pretty cottage is located in the peaceful backwaters of the traditional Cotswold village of Shipton Oliffe. Sleeping two people in one bedroom and welcoming one furry friend, this quaint and cosy property is the perfect bolthole for a romantic couple who want to explore the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside with their trusty pup by their side. Fido is sure to enjoy the freedom of the enclosed garden and stretching out in front of the wood burner each night.
Strolling up to this gorgeous property, you’ll be met by the sounds of a babbling brook by the garden gate. Step inside and wipe off any muddy paws in the porch area. This cottage has character at every turn, from its low ceilings with exposed beams to its natural stone design accents. Cook a romantic meal in the well-equipped kitchen, take in courtyard views as you dine at the picture window, or cuddle up in front of the wood burner in the lounge area. At the end of the day, climb the cottage-style stairs to the first floor where you will find the cosy bedroom. In the morning, plan your day with your loved one over morning coffee in the enclosed courtyard as your four-legged friend runs free.
Animal lovers will enjoy a day out at Cotswold Wildlife Park (16 miles), where your pup is welcome everywhere except in the Bat Belfry, the Reptile House, the Children’s Farmyard and any areas that have free-ranging animals. Alternatively, take your pup for a stroll at Painswick Rococo Garden (15 miles), designed in the 1740s as a pleasure garden. You’ll find water bowls at the coach house and doggy snacks in the dog-friendly cafe.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
