    Shenley is a beautiful cottage in a great area to explore.

    XantheJun 2021

  • "A comfortable cottage in a beautiful spot, ideally located for access to many of the towns and villages you'll be wanting to visit."

    Represents good value for a Cotswolds getaway.

  • "An excellent long weekend away"

    JamesAug 2020

  • "Wow. What an amazing place."

    The house was stunning. The pictures do not do it justice. Going in march is always a risk with the weather but we had a couple of nice days so we got to explore the local area. Stow and Bourton on the water are beautiful. Loved our time there, the locals were amazing and the Fox Inn pub was a proper village pub with outstanding food and hospitality. We will be back.

    Great local pub and perfect place for a relaxing time away with the family.

    AndyJan 2020

  • "Quintessential English countryside house."

    We were a family of five and found it perfect for our stay. Big and comfortable bedrooms for a good night of shut eye before a long day exploring nearby towns and walking. Cosy and warm living room that we could drink wine and play boardgames in the evening.

  • "It's always a risk when you stay in a new place will it live up to the description and photos on the website as well as or own expectations."

    Shenley did not disappoint, fantastic accommodation in a great location. Thanks also for the detailed directions.

    NigelOct 2018

  • "Beautiful Decor."

    Super clean. Beds and bedding were excellent. Loved loved the kitchen and that the house was quiet and not in a touristy village. Car is needed to get around. Everything you forgot was there already. What a lovely home in which to experience country life. Don’t put the tall people upstairs tho. Low beam!

    DanielOct 2018

  • "What a lovely place to experience England for the first time."

    We thoroughly enjoyed walking up to birdsong and the country views, exploring the village and surrounding area during the day and reading in the cozy window seat in the evenings. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    TiffanySep 2018

  • "We had a lovely visit and this is a great location to travel through the Cotswolds."

    Like other visitors to your beautifully appointed home, we enjoyed dinner at The Fox Inn. We appreciated the updated bathrooms and ate our meals outside when we cooked at the cottage. Thank you for the lovely gesture of cake and milk to welcome us. There is so much to see in this wonderful part of England. Thank you for sharing your home

    AshleyJul 2018

  • "A wonderful few days."

    The cottage was perfect for what we needed. There was a group of six of us and the rooms and facilities were perfect... We made use of the gardens front and back and the neighbours were lovely, very friendly and helpful. The food at The Fox Inn was excellent, as were the staff at the pub.

    JanetJul 2018

  • "It’s the night before the summer solstices and its still light at 10-10:30pm."

    We can’t think of a better place to be. What a lovely home – so well appointed and so comfortable. We have wonderful time in the Cotswolds and enjoying our time here. We went to The Fox Inn on the first night and had a great pub dinner. Stow offers a great selection of restaurants and shops. So happy we found you!

  • "Definitely a property of character - beautiful!"

    Excellent bathrooms too. It was perfect for our family birthday celebration. Beautiful location - very quiet. Parking for two cars right outside the entrance door (at the back at the end of a long drive). Would definitely recommend this place.

    ChristineApr 2018

  • "Beautiful well equipped cottage with character & setting in the heart of the pastoral Midlands."

    Pub around the corner and the town 5 minutes away. Modern wood burning hearth during a cold front is a winner. Anri-Jacques

  • "Fantastic place, little things like herbs and spices in the kitchen were a really appreciated touch, had everything we needed and then some."

    Instructions were clear and the place was in perfect order.

    JustinJul 2017

  • "I would give this property a five-star rating, the setting is just lovely, a stone’s throw from the green and country pub, we walked into Stow on the Wold which is a bit uphill but lovely."

    The cottage is really well furnished with a lovely sofa and a mix of antique furniture. The kitchen is really well equipped and the owner left a handmade cake for us.We are really fussy when it comes to homes and interiors and we were both impressed. the bedrooms are all a good size with a good standard of linens and bathrooms. Highly recommended by us and we are really hard to please!

The property

Resting in the peaceful village of Broadwell is this excellent Grade ll listed cottage, perched at the end of a short terrace that was once The Manor House in Broadwell, which is one of the most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds, housing many period properties and a friendly local pub.

Shenley overlooks the large village green and is the perfect base for you and your loved ones to enjoy a trip to the Cotswolds.

Upon arrival at the cottage, pull your car into the private driveway that houses two cars and make your way to the main entrance of the property.

You are welcomed by the well-presented stylish kitchen/diner which is complete with dining table with seating for six; perfect for socialising with your group and arranging your itinerary for your stay.

The soft furnishings and mix of contemporary and period features in the sitting area welcome you in with open arms.

The oak beams, stone mullion windows and beautiful stone fireplace with woodburning stove create a homely and comforting feeling for you to snuggle up and watch a film.

A handy cloakroom completes the ground-floor.

Once you’ve taken in the stunning surroundings of the ground-floor, make your way up to the first-floor where you are graced with two charming bedrooms and the shower room.

Overlooking the village green, the first bedroom is a characterful room and contains an inviting double bed.

The second bedroom is accessed down two steps and contains twin antique brass beds and an ornamental fireplace.

Into the eaves of the property, you will find the third bedroom which houses a generous super-king-size bed and benefits from an en-suite bathroom with freestanding bath; make the most of it and run yourself a relaxing bath to finish off your day.

The lawned area to the front of the cottage is home to a bench and table, outlooking onto the village green.

The rear of the property has a lovely courtyard area which has a table with seating for six for you to enjoy your meals alfresco.

There are plenty of places to see and visit around Broadwell.

Whether you love hiking or cycling, Broadwell is a region where hidden gems are waiting to be explored and visited.

One of the undiscovered beauty spots of the Cotswolds, Broadwell has it all; a broad village green surrounded by lovely Cotswold stone cottages, a gentle stream running through the village, a friendly inn - The Fox Inn, and a Norman church with some intriguing historical monuments.

Broadwell is home to St Peter & St Paul’s Church which is a large medieval cruciform church, dating back to the 12th and 14 centuries.

Venture further afield to Cotswold Wildlife Park which is set across a plot of 160 acres and is one of the premier family-friendly attractions in the Cotswolds.

Make your way through the park’s four distinctive sections, get up close to exotic animal species and admire the gardens.

Close by Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’, is home to many attractions and straddles the River Windrush with low bridges.

Here, you can discover a miniature replica of the Cotswold-stone village at The Model Village, or enjoy a scrumptious picnic surrounded by wildlife at Birdland Park & Gardens.

For an unforgettable holiday, choose Shenley as your base.
