  • "Had a great stay."

    Just pointing out that the key in the keybox was actually for the front door, the back door key seems to be jammed in the back door (on the inside), still works ok but obviously doesn't come out. Had a perfect stay, such a lovely cottage and village, won't hesitate to book again.

    This is a great location to explore surrounding villages in Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. The cottage is very comfortable with a large kitchen diner and cosy lounge with a wood burner. I would recommend this cottage.

The property

Resting in a peaceful lane, in the picture-postcard village of Southrop, next to the village green, is this lovely semi-detached Cotswold stone cottage, Swan View.

With a pretty south-west facing garden, and just moments from the local pub, the property is the perfect getaway for a small family or group of friends alike who are seeking a relaxing break in this stunning part of the Cotswolds.

Park-up on the gravel driveway and be welcomed into the entrance hall where you can kick off your shoes and enter into the beautifully-presented sitting room that has wooden flooring and an eye-catching exposed brick fireplace containing a wood and coal burning stove, perfect for getting crackling on a cold winter evening and snuggling up on the sofas to watch a movie on the Smart TV.

A smart and light country-style kitchen provides a space where you can prepare picnics for your walks into the Cotswolds or rustle up a hot meal for your guests with the electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge and freezer, and you’ll also find a dishwasher to make cleaning up a breeze!

Tuck into your meals in the lovely dining room at the large wooden dining table, before catching the sunset sat on the Rattan sofa and two chairs in the beautiful conservatory, where French doors lead out to the large, mature rear garden, with planted borders, fruit trees and a lawn area, where you can dine in warmer months underneath the umbrella at the outdoor seating area.

Be sure to make use of the charcoal barbecue in summer months!

Back inside, a utility/cloakroom and a snug room complete the ground floor.

When night falls, tuck the kids into bed in the single room which has an additional 75cm wide pull-out single bed available on request, and head into the bight and spacious king-size room to get some rest for the night.

In the morning, make your way into the shower room for an invigorating rinse before getting ready to head out for the day.

Swan View is surrounded by the stunning Cotswolds countryside, and you will find The River Leach runs past the village where there is an abundance of walks from the doorstep of the cottage, including the Cotswolds Walk from Southrop to Eastleach which starts near the Swan pub and takes you along the River Leach, across the beautiful Cotswold countryside and on to the pretty village of Eastleach.

Eastleach is a twin village consisting of Eastleach Martin and remains unspoilt by modern times, with more than 60 listed buildings.

The two villages are connected by a traditional stone clapper bridge, a series of piers supporting a row of flagstones.

The route then returns south, back to Southrop through open countryside, where you can enjoy a well-deserved meal and tipple at The Swan.

Burford, the “gateway to the Cotswolds” is close by, which is a town with some fantastic shops, restaurants and tourist attractions including Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, a landscaped parkland filled with nature and also Tolsey Museum, which has local history, culture, and industry collections.

The market town of Cirencester is well worth a visit, and you will find an array of shops along the Market Place and can brush up on some history at Corinium Museum which shows impressive Roman artifacts that have been well-preserved.

Gather together with your loved ones to enjoy the scenic countryside of the Cotswolds and stay at Swan View.

Southrop is a picturesque village and civil parish in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire. It is situated on the River Leach which is a tributary of the Thames.

It has all the ingredients of a quintessential English village including a 12th century Church adjacent to the Manor House and a pub on the green.

The village has a restaurant called The Swan, as well as a shop and post office, with a village fete taking place there every June which encompasses many talents like a Dog Show and Coconut Shy.

In amongst the quaint setting of the village is a village hall utilised by the local community for taking part in village groups or children’s parties.
