The cottage had everything we needed and provided a good base for visiting various towns and villages in the Cotswolds. Would recommend The Keepers Arms for dinner. We would also recommend the walk from Coln St Albans to Bibury and back, which you can actually start from the cottage by just adding an extra half mile each way.
