The property

The Old Reading Room is an exceptionally well presented, personal and romantic country cottage (three proposals have taken place here to date) set in the heart of this lovely and tranquil village.

The cottage which itself is contemporary and light, and fantastically located to explore the Cotswolds, has been meticulously restored (and maintained) to a very high specification from what was originally the old school room where local children would have practised their reading and music.

The cottage provides light, airy and extremely welcoming accommodation set across two floors, with a number of traditional features balancing out a clean and modern feel, including traditional Cotswold stone walls, open-log burning fire and pretty beams.

Externally the property has access to a peaceful, secluded country cottage garden.

The Old Reading Room is situated in the heart of Bledington, an archetypal Cotswold village with a quintessential village green, attractive stream with Bledington ducks, together with the acclaimed Kings Head pub.

In our opinion this is a stunning English Country Cottage that is certain to delight.
