  • “This is a beautiful cottage in a particularly lovely location and near to a great pub/restaurant.”

    It is well equipped. The kitchen/dining room is very spacious and airy and the lounge is comfortable. Two of the three bedrooms - the double bedded rooms -are also spacious. My only criticisms are small ones which are summed up by the comment that there was a need for a bit of maintenance here and there. The grass in the back garden was overly long, which meant it was very wet to walk on. The lightbulbs in the lamps in the lounge had gone but (despite a previous visitor also mentioning this) ...

    It is well equipped. The kitchen/dining room is very spacious and airy and the lounge is comfortable. Two of the three bedrooms - the double bedded rooms -are also spacious. My only criticisms are small ones which are summed up by the comment that there was a need for a bit of maintenance here and there. The grass in the back garden was overly long, which meant it was very wet to walk on. The lightbulbs in the lamps in the lounge had gone but (despite a previous visitor also mentioning this) were not replaced, and the door handle between the kitchen and the hall was extremely loose. Whilst we were there, water started to come through the ceiling too! To be fair, this was quickly and effectively dealt with by a plumber and electrician organised by Sykes, but the plumber commented that the leak (due to a break in the sealant around the bath) had clearly been happening 'for quite a long time'. All that said, this IS a very nice cottage, with many, many positives, and we had a very good break!

The property

Orchard House is a spacious detached cottage situated in the tranquil Cotswold village of Upper Oddington.

It is just moments from both the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and fashionable Daylesford Organic shop & restaurant.

The cottage beautifully combines historic honey coloured stone, flagstone floors and wood beams with stylish contemporary furnishings and decor.

Downstairs, three historic cottages have been combined into one long, light and spacious set of living spaces.

Cooks and entertainers should adore the magnificent and well-equipped kitchen which, with its high ceilings, large cooking range and classic farmhouse dining table, is the heart of this home.

The living room, with two large, comfortable sofas, and log burner is ideal for friends and family to relax together after a ling country walk or meal. Upstairs there are three bedrooms ( one king-size double, one King-size double or twin, and one set twin), as well as two stylish bathrooms ( both with power showers, WC, and washbasins, one also offering a bath).

There is also a downstairs cloakroom. To the rear is a large secluded garden with patio and small stream.

To the front there is ample off-street parking.

The cottage itself is situated off a quiet lane. Upper Oddington is a characterful village situated in a designated area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

It is surrounded by countryside, offering the opportunity for numerous walks.

The village has two pubs, including the award-winning Fox Inn, and an 11th century church ( St Nicholas) with it's medieval last judgement fresco.

The Charming Cotswold villages of Burford, Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water are all close by.

Stratford, Oxford and Cheltenham are also easy to visit. Orchard House is an award-winning cottage which has been selected for features in the national press on many occasions.

We hope that it is the perfect home whilst you explore this beautiful area of the Cotswolds.

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.
