  • "The cottage is beautifully maintained and fantastically appointed."

    I feel that the pictures showing the driveway are extremely misleading. It should be noted that the access to the property is very tight for anyone visiting with a large family car. The access is not only tight to the point I had to drive in and reverse out with literally inches to spare but the bushes and foliage, although very beautiful overhangs the already tight access and caught my car roof, wing mirrors and doors whilst entering and accessing the drive space. My car parking sensors did not stop beeping for the full series of manoeuvres. I cannot believe that the owner is not aware of this situation. There is even a note in the welcome pack asking visitors not to use the neighbours drive to manoeuvre in and out of the property and that disrespect of this or parking more than one vehicle on the drive might result in a £200 charge to your credit card. If I’d have been aware of this at point of booking I can honestly say I’d have not looked at this property for another moment. Any conditions/ issues like this should be made clear at point of booking!

  • "Yew Tree Cottage was an ideal holiday destination for us."

    We were looking for somewhere quiet, in the countryside, with room for guests and the facilities to cater for them. Spot on! It certainly is quiet in Eastington, with a handful of houses, a few friendly locals and an idyllic setting. The cottage is very well presented, with good amenities - the kitchen, washing machine, television, fire places, internet (although not very strong signal) and (importantly as it turned out) good central heating. Striking the wettest June on record was a bit of a bummer, but didn't hold us back. Nearby Northleach is a perfect place to stop in, top up on groceries, shop at the excellent butcher or get a meal at the marvellous Wheatsheaf (yes, Sunday lunch is terrific!). Then the rest of the Cotswolds are all at hand, with beautiful Cheltenham less than an hour away and Cirencester even closer. So much to see and do...a really good holiday experience. Thanks for the hospitality, Laura!

  • "Lovely and clean, well equipped quirky cottage with low ceilings (mind your head if you're over 6 ft) and good beds."

    Narrow drive and parking for one car only. Could not manage to find any other parking in eastington and the locals who we asked were not helpful. Beautiful cottage garden with nice sitting area.

  • "This is an excellent cottage in a stunning and peaceful location, with all the facilities you would expect."

    Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented, and a pleasure to spend time there - with great access to all the major 'tourist' towns of the Cotswolds. Would highly recommend.

  • "There are no oven gloves!"

    The heating / hot water pipes are very noisy - woke us up early both mornings. The drive is a nightmare to get in / out of.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Yew Tree Cottage."

    There are a couple of things we would like to say, for improvement of the stay of others. Firstly, when I originally booked the cottage I requested the third bedroom be made up as a double. The possibility of this being done was a key factor in booking the cottage. I was assured by manor cottages that the housekeeper would be informed. Sadly the room was set up as two single beds. We were disappointed about this and it meant we had to decide which couple stayed in separate beds. Secondly, some small irritations over the weekend, but nothing insurmountable. There was no adequate bread knife, the pans for cooking for six people were on the small side, and two tea towels was not really enough. We enjoyed the open fires, the decor and setting of the house were both beautiful. I hope this is helpful.

  • "The entrance to the driveway of this house is extremely tight."

    However, it was a beautiful home and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

The property

At the end of a small, winding track sits Yew Tree Cottage, the epitome of a Cotswolds Cottage.

Built in the classic honey coloured stone this gorgeous gem sits in the outstanding village of Eastington, a small hamlet on the edge of Northleach - a sleepy village with shops and an award winning pub, and about 10 mins from Burford and Stow on the Wold.

Surrounded by a beautiful garden and fields beyond, you are in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Step inside this beauty, and the cottage opens up into a smart, cool home that is spacious and cosy in equal measure.

Beams and flagstone floors are mixed with contemporary features that make this a relaxing, homely hideaway for a family or a group of couples.

The garden to the rear is a wonderful cottage garden, spread across a good sized area with a number of terraces and places to sit.

About the location


Northleach IS just off the Roman road, the Fosse Way (A429) 8 miles north-east of Cirencester and 10 miles south-west of Stow-on-the-Wold, and about 7 miles from Burford - making it an excellent place to travel from if you're looking to visit these popular and attractive places. Northleach was at one time an important market town, celebrated throughout Europe as a major centre for the Cotswold wool trade! The fifteenth-century church of St Peter and St Paul, paid for by the wealthy wool merchants, was built with stone dug from the quarry in the town itself and what is now the Market Square. More recently the village has been used in a number of recent films, including the Casual Vacancy of 2015.
