  • "Will's Cottage is a fantastic place!"

    It has fantastic space inside, is warm, cosy and impeccably clean. There are all necessary amenities in the cottage and it's situated in an ideal place for lots of local walks with a number of pubs close by that offer variety depending on what you're looking for. I would recommend to anyone!

  • "We had a lovely stay at Will’s Cottage!"

    Our hosts were extremely welcoming and provided some brilliant recommendations in the local area. The cottage was sparkling clean and much more spacious than expected. The cottage is set on a picturesque farm and there are some fantastic country walks in the surrounding area. We will definitely be returning!

The property

Will’s Cottage is a lovely contemporary Cotswold stone home, situated on a working farm near the village of Horsley, the perfect base for a gathering of friends or a small family seeking a relaxing break surrounded by the glorious Cotswold scenery.

You are welcomed onto the property grounds by four off-road parking spaces as you unload your luggage and marvel at the beautiful property before you.

The front door opens directly into the bright and airy open-plan living space, complete with elegant furnishings and stylish wooden flooring, where you and your guests can relax of an evening on the inviting corner sofa as the budding chef of the group rustles up the evening meal in the well-equipped kitchen before you all retreat to the wooden dining table to enjoy your food and toast to a wonderful holiday that lies ahead.

Upstairs you will find two homely double bedrooms with ample storage space as well as the bathroom that has been stylishly decorated.

Outside, the lovely patio area enjoys far-reaching views of the surrounding farmland and countryside beyond with bright and fragrant flowers springing up between the paving stones, and a vintage plough makes for a wonderful feature.

There is an outdoor table set, a garden bench and a charcoal barbecue, perfect for al fresco dining in the warmer months.

The owners’ grounds cover farmland, woodland and wildflower meadows, all of which guests are welcome to explore at their leisure.

The unspoilt village of Horsley is home to a number of amenities such as the community shop, village hall, children’s playground and sports field, together with a 15th century parish church and popular country pub, The Hog.

Nearby market town of Nailsworth in the Nailsworth Valley, one of the “Five Valleys” in the South Cotswolds, is known for its quality restaurants, modern art gallery and independent shops where you can also enjoy a delicious breakfast at The Canteen Café before showing off your golfing skills at Minchinhampton Golf Club and finishing off your day with food and a tipple at The Village Inn.

Horsley is surrounded by breath-taking countryside, with many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep to discover; Kingscote and Horsley Woods, along with nearby Woodchester Park, are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and the latter is owned by the National Trust and includes a play trail, walking trails and a mansion with its own café.

The region offers a range of tourist attractions including Chavenage House, a stately home and The Royal Gardens at Highgrove.

The village is also well-placed for exploring the many historical towns of the South Cotswolds including Stroud and Cirencester.

For a wonderful stay in Horsley, stay at Will’s Cottage.

About the location


Wylam 2 miles; Heddon-on-the-Wall 3 miles; Corbridge 7 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 8 miles; Hexham 12 miles.

The parish of Horsley is situated in one of the most scenic parts of east Tynedale, and forms part of a World Heritage Site. The Hadrian’s Wall long distance path is situated one mile north of the village of Horsley and is connected by existing rights of way, one of which travels through Horsley Wood, a woodland dating to the medieval period. Horsley village is steeped in history, and many of the buildings have strong architectural features and are of great historical significance, while Horsley is close to the village of Wylam, the birthplace of George Stephenson, one of the early pioneers of the railway industry. Along the road is Heddon-on-the-Wall which sits on the line of the old Hadrian’s Wall, still visible at the edge of the village, and the lovely town of Corbridge, which has history dating back to Roman times, is also nearby. Just a little further on is the Tyne Valley town of Hexham with its abbey, old gaol and old town centre. The vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its many pubs, shops, eateries, museums and other attractions is within driving distance and has something for everyone. Horsley is an ideal base for exploring this part of Northumberland.
