  • "The cottage is very nice especially the snug in the lower level."

    This would have been much nicer though with a larger comfier sofa and a bigger tv. The kitchen is nice and well equipped with every glass you need for any drink and all utensils. The table and seating area are very nice too. We didn’t spend much time in the living room… There is no downstairs toilet which was quite annoying and seemed it would be quite straightforward to do. The upstairs beds were very comfy and everyone slept really well though an en-suite would have been great with my in laws down the landing. The bathroom was really nice but the water was that hot it removed your skin! We all had a shower the 1st night and the water was still in the bath the next day which was not a great start. We also had no rail in our wardrobe of the main bedroom. We called them and they sent maintenance out the same day. He fixed the drain, mentioned the wardrobe but never came back! The area and village are beautiful with lovely walks on your doorstep and an easy drive to other areas, pubs and shops.

    Thank you for providing us with your feedback. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay overall. We appreciate that more than one bathroom is always a bonus, however it does state clearly that there is only one bathroom. We will look in to the other issues mentioned to ensure the best guest experience going forwards. Property Owner

The property

Even before you enter Molly's Cottage you will begin to appreciate what a lovely cottage this is, as you take in the lovely view of St Peter's church, (which sits just behind the cottage) and the rolling hills of the Windrush valley beyond.

The owners have gone to a huge amount of trouble to create a lovely holiday home, full of old world charm combined with a cool and contemporary finish.

You will enter the cottage via the rear door (passing the washer / dryer in the utilities area).

The kitchen diner then greets you:simply but beautifully presented with a range of built in cupboards and units lining two sides of the room, containing all the facilities you could need to create some mouth watering dishes to be enjoyed around the farmhouse kitchen table, lined on 2 sides by cosy bench seating; a lovely place to spend a few hours and catch up on the day's events.

As you pass into the entrance hall you will notice one of the cottage's more quirky features; a viewing window set into the floor - but more of that in a moment.

You then enter into one of the cottage's beautifully appointed lounges, with sumptuous sofas and a lovely log-burner, which would help to ramp up the atmosphere on chilly winter evenings.

Back in the entrance hall you will find stairs leading both up, and down.

Heading downstairs (and please do so with caution as these stairs are steeper than you might normally find and a foldaway stairgate has been installed at the top of the stairs to ensure the safety of toddlers), you will find the second lounge, again lovingly appointed with comfortable seating and another log-burner; ideal if you want peace and quiet.Going back up to the entrance hall and taking the stairs to the first floor (and again due to the age of the cottage these stairs are steeper than normal) you will find the sleeping accommodation, comprising of 2 double bedrooms (one with a standard double and one with a king size double) and a single bedroom.

You will also find the beautifully appointed family bathroom.

Outside the cottage you have the fully enclosed patio, furnished with table and chairs, and it really is a beautiful setting in which to enjoy a spot of al-fresco dining.

If you can tear yourself away from this superb base, then why not take a stroll across the fields and enjoy the hospitality of The Fox in Great Barrington, a lovely, traditional riverside inn which lies less than1 mile away from the cottage. Venturing a little further afield, you will be able to enjoy some of the most beautiful towns and villages that the Cotswolds has to offer, including Bourton on the Water (6 miles), Stow-on-the Wold (10 miles), Burford (4 miles) and the historic city of Oxford, which can be reached in about 40 minutes.

Perfectly located for discovering all that this part of the Cotswolds has to offer, Molly's Cottage is the ideal base for friends and family alike at any time of year.

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

About the location


Burford is possibly one of, if not THE most famous of the Cotswolds' locations. With its medieval bridge, old stone houses and attractive Tudor and Georgian frontages, Burford is justifiably one of the most picturesque towns in England. Often referred to as the 'Gateway to the Cotswolds', the town was originally a fortified Anglo-Saxon ford which later grew to be an important regional crossroads and wealthy wool town. Located mid way between Oxford and Cheltenham (25 mins each away) it is a little haven of history and beauty that many come to fall in love with when they visit.

The 16th century Tolsey building, once the meeting place for medieval merchants, now houses The Tolsey Museum, a delightful local museum illustrating the town's social and industrial past. The church is stunning, a real gem architecturally with many interesting memorials charting some of Burford's great families. There is also the signature, on the baptisimal font, of Antony Sedley, one of the Levellers besieged in the church in 1649 - three of the ringleaders were executed by Oliver Cromwell's men in the churchyard. History awaits!

With little changing over the centuries, Burford is now very popular with visitors, both for its beauty and history but also for its shopping and antiques, and for the wide variety of places to eat, with restaurants, pubs and teashops. It is an ideal base for visiting The Cotswolds area as it is within easy driving distance of popular attractions such as Blenheim Palace, Sudley Castle, Warwick Castle and several National Trust Houses and Gardens. Bourton on the Water, Bibury, Cirencester and Stow on the Wold are all with 25 minutes from the property.

Region Information

Also, the stairs are narrow and steeper that you might normally expect to find, and may not be suitable for people with mobility issues.
A foldaway stairgate has been installed at the top of the basement stairs to ensure the safety of toddlers.
This cottage requires a Good House-keeping Bond of £200.00.
One dog allowed at the cost of £25 per pet, per week
