  • "Very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage."

    One very spacious bedroom and one smaller one. Central heating was warm enough to keep the house warm even in November. However, the duvets were a bit thin - I felt a bit cold and would have appreciated a proper winter duvet on the bed. Good water pressure in the shower. Well-equipped kitchen. The fridge is on the small side so don't buy too much food in one shop. Comfortable sofas and armchairs and a good sized TV in the lounge. There is no parking directly outside the cottage. However, we managed to park in the nearby market square (although do note the restrictions as it's only free after 6pm and until 8am). We enjoyed our stay and would return.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback. We have passed your comments onto our Housekeeping Team. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and hope that we can welcome you back again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Well firstly the good."

    Well impressed with the kitchen and the facilities it provided, very spacious and very clean.said can be about the bathroom with spacious shower and very clean although quite small if you are disabled. Beds were comfortable and clean with one large bedroom and a smaller one but both adequate. Stairs can be abit hit and miss but for older property expected that but not ideal for a disabled person. Now the bad. You do specify that there no parking but to get a parking space within easy reach is near impossible and being slightly disabled myself walking nearly half a mile to park the car is certainly not adequate and to park your car in near pub car park would cost you a fortune for a few days, maybe you can meet with car park owners and thrash a deal for people staying at the cottage. Sofa and chairs are not comfortable and are very low we had trouble sitting on them and spent most of our stay on dining room chairs. Windows were very dirty during our stay. Very noisy first thing in the morning but being on a main road I guess that’s the norm. Clothes racks not adequate as one was stuck behind the smaller rooms bed. We did enjoy most of our stay but some things need ironing out especially the parking.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you had trouble parking, there is usually space in the free car park around the corner. We do our best to represent our properties accurately, through our descriptions and photographs to enable our customers to make informed decisions about amenities, such as stairs, furniture and space in bedrooms. We hope you enjoyed exploring the local area. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "The cottage was exactly as advertised."

    It was spotlessly clean and had every piece of kitchen equipment required. A Xmas tree was still up and helped with the atmosphere. We had a super time and thank you for helping us celebrate.

    Thank you for this lovely review. We're delighted you enjoyed your New Year at Halfpenny Cottage and hope to welcome you again in the future. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

The property

Tucked away in the popular town of Lechlade, Gloucestershire, is this beautiful semi-detached cottage, Halfpenny Cottage.

Enjoying an idyllic position along the banks of the River Thames, and settled on the outskirts of the Cotswolds AONB, Halfpenny Cottage is a fabulous choice for couples or a family of four.

Be welcomed into the light and airy sitting room, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush seating as your favourite show plays out on the Smart TV.

Rustle up your best dishes in the fully-equipped kitchen/diner, ready to savour at the dining table for four over a bottle of wine, or alfresco out in your very own private garden.

Completing the ground floor is a handy boot room and a cloakroom for your convenience.

Follow the stairs up to the first floor, where you can freshen up with a hot shower after a day of sightseeing, before retiring to one of two tastefully decorated bedrooms, a spacious king-size and a double, both with plenty of storage.

Explore the local town, where you can treat your loved ones to a well-deserved meal at The Riverside, The Swan Inn and Trout Inn, stock up on essentials at the convenience store, take to the waters of the River Thames on a boat trip, visit the famous Cotswold Christmas Shop, picnic in Riverside Park, or continue onto nearby Buscot to explore the fascination National Trust site of Buscot Park.

Next stop is Cirencester, where you can tour the Corinium Museum, take a dip in the open-air swimming pool, step into history with a leisurely walk around Cirencester Amphitheatre, or test out your swing at the excellent Cirencester Golf Club.

Further afield, you will find Oxford, home to the prestigious university, Oxford Castle & Prison, The Oxford Artisan Distillery, Ashmolean Museum, and the Michelin Star restaurants of Magdalen Arms and Pompette.

Your adventure to the Cotswolds begins at Halfpenny Cottage.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £200.

About the location


Cirencester 13 miles; Oxford 24.5 miles.

The popular riverside market town of Lechlade lies on the edge of the southern Cotswolds and has many traditional pubs, antique shops, a Londis and a Co-operative including a fuel station. Lechlade is also home to the infamous Christmas shop (“Where it’s Christmas all year round”) and offers many river-based activities with River Thames trips available throughout the summer season. Lechlade is steeped in history and is an excellent base for many Cotswold and River Thames walks, including the Thames Path, plus excellent fly fishing is also on offer and the town plays host to many festivals throughout the year, including the annual three day Lechlade Music Festival, featuring over 80 bands and performers. Nearby, The Cotswold Water Park is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles, made up of 140 lakes; an area larger than the Norfolk Broads. Britain's largest water park, it offers a wide range of activities, including boating, water skiing, fishing (some of the finest trout fishing in the country), cycling, walking, golf and horse riding. Cirencester, known as The Capital of the Cotswolds is just a short drive away and boasts a rich and well-preserved heritage with a Roman Amphitheatre, Corinium Museum and Abbey Grounds. The Brewery Arts Centre offers visitors a unique arts and crafts shopping experience or visit the Bathurst Estate, home to the Cirencester Polo Club where some of the highest level of polo can be seen. Oxford, the oldest University City in England, boasts interesting Botanical Gardens, museums and libraries, and plays host to many festivals and markets throughout the year. The ancestral home of Winston Churchill and the World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace is just a short drive away, where many lovely walks can be enjoyed around the landscaped parkland. Within an hour's drive is Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, many unspoilt Cotswold villages and the Malvern Hills, all of which are well worth a visit.
