Set within the fringes of a traditional Cotswold village, this stylish cottage has been lovingly restored offering spacious accommodation well suited to family and friends whatever the time of year.

Located in the charming Cotswold village of Old Sodbury, this traditional five-bedroom property is perfect for families or groups of friends seeking a comfortable base from which to enjoy the outdoor activities within the area. Within walking distance of the friendly local pub and well-stocked village store, head out of the village along the Cotswold Way to reach the medieval church and Iron Age hillfort. Wander through the peaceful woodlands of Westonbirt arboretum (10 miles), home to 2,500 species of trees, and explore the 13-metre high Treetop Walkway for a different perspective on the landscape below.

Dating back to 1875, this pretty stone cottage combines traditional features with modern conveniences. Step through the wooden front door into the grand reception hall: with polished floorboards, original fireplace and exposed central beam, this is a restful space for relaxed family evenings of conversation and board games. Head through to the snug for an evening movie or peaceful relaxation in front of the wood burner. Sip an early evening cocktail in the third reception area, a more formal space with open fire, that leads through to the spacious conservatory, making this an ideal area for entertaining. Share a bottle of wine with friends as you cook up a storm in the wonderful kitchen, a generous space warmed by the traditional four-oven AGA. Enjoy leisurely meals at the elegant dining table which comfortably seats all guests. When the day is done, head upstairs where you will find the five well-appointed bedrooms. The two double bedrooms, one with en-suite shower, are warm and cosy with pretty linens and cosy throws. Accessed via the twin bedroom, the king-size bedroom is tastefully decorated in soothing tones. The final bedroom is another generous king-size with access to the Jack and Jill bathroom. Outside, enjoy a morning coffee in the walled garden or light the BBQ on the patio for a sociable evening meal.

The cottage is ideal for a family holiday. It is spacious and well appointed, with a good sized garden plus a family size hot tub. There is a pub within a few minutes walk and all manner of shops and amenities a short drive away. The cottage feels comfortable with adequate parking for three cars. An ideal base to commence your holiday.
