  • "Very nicely presented, lovely location."

    Little to complain about, but shower very low, ok for short people not so good for the taller person. No soup or proper dessert spoons, odd ! Overall very good

    Thank you for your feedback and we're glad you enjoyed your stay at Swan View, and also the location. We will pass on your comment to the property manager regarding the shower, and cutlery. Thank you for bringing these issues to our attention. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Would have been lovely if The Swan Pub was open as it closed due to COVID. This should be mentioned on the website when booking as it was one of advantages of the cottage. Cottage itself was very spacious with a lovely garden.

    Thank you for your feedback and we're glad you loved the cottage. Thank you also for letting us know about the Swan Pub - we will take steps to amend this on the website for the benefit of future guests. Property Owner

  • "A delightful cottage, with everything that you could want - very well equipped."

    Spotlessly clean and well decorated, warm and welcoming, with a surprising amount of space. Lovely, well tended and dog-proof garden. Without a doubt the loveliest cottage we have stayed in, and a perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds. We'll be back!

  • "We had s lovely couple of days at Swan cottage, it had everything we needed and was comfortable."

    Our two frenchies enjoyed it as well, the garden was lovely to sit in, plus secure for the dogs. Great walks from the cottage, it was a shame the village pub wasn't open, but we did pass one in the next village. Only downside for me there was no bath after a long walk! But you can't have everything!! Beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings.

  • "A really enjoyable stay, blighted only by The Swan being shut (and no sign of it re-opening!"

    :( ) The cottage was very clean and welcoming. Lots of room downstairs especially for the 2 of us and our Labrador Molly. Shame there isn't a 3rd bedroom as this would be perfect for a larger group. Facilities are moire than adequate throughout the cottage. Dog walking in the village is so handy (across the road and into the massive fields beyond) and there is a useful back garden. In all the property is ideal, although local facilities are few and far between..... The area has lots to offer and the walks from Southrop to EastLeach Turville over the fields and from The Trout Inn to The Riverside Inn at Lechlade are super short and easy picturesque outings. A really enjoyable stay, thank you.

    Thank you for your lovely comments and it wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed your stay. It's a great spot to base yourself and we hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

    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.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review, we are glad to know that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon. Property Owner

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, 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 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.

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.
