A recent winner on Channel 5's Holiday Homes in the Sun, this cottage's stone mullion windows and timber beams hark back to the 1800s. The wood-burning stove set in the stone fireplace is also a nod to the past, while modern comforts and shining chrome appliances in the Shaker-style kitchen keep one foot in the present.
Take it back to analogue with an evening of board games by the fire, or soak up the last of the evening sun in the private garden. There’s a barbecue for alfresco feasts under the pergola. The real highlight of this cottage is the view. Peering out through the windows in the master bedroom and living room you can see the rolling countryside, a patchwork of fields and fells, to the horizon.
Lace-up your hiking boots and enjoy country walks from your doorstep – you’re in the Cotswolds AONB so there are plenty of trails to choose from. The hustle and bustle here is the curious sheep in the fields and the occasional hoot of a barn owl, but if you do want to spend a day amongst people and sights, you are between the honeypots of Broadway and Chipping Campden. Bourton-on-the-Water and Stratford-upon-Avon are just a twenty-minute drive away.
