  • "The cottage was lovely but the lack of parking was a real negative as it turns out Lechlade is a horror for day/ night parking."

    You need to have whomever cleans the cottage take away the recycling and rubbish. New tenants should gave to face overflowing bins outside the back door

  • "Everything in the property was lovely."

    All clean and comfortable, everything seemed brand new and very positive. Only had a problem with parking, as just nowhere around, which is not the owners fault, I had to walk about a mile and a half to find anywhere, as no where outside and on a busy road. Plus on opening the back gate lots of rubbish piled up and scattered around from other properties, once again not the owners fault.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback. We're glad you found the cottage to be comfortable and enjoyed your stay there. We're sorry to hear you experienced parking issues - there is a public car park close by but many towns and villages in the Cotswolds are so popular at peak holiday times this can be a sometimes be a challenge! We have passed on your comments to the Property Manager regarding the rubbish outside the back gate which will be investigated. We hope to welcome you again. Best wishes Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Fabulous cottage, very well presented with a well stocked kitchen and lovely bedrooms."

    Only a couple of minor issues, no light to the front of the property making the steps a little tricky, and unfortunately there is a lot of rubbish at the rear of the house making it impossible to use the rear gate which was a shame. However I will be booking the cottage again in the future.

  • "Great holiday."

    The cottage was ideal and comfortable. having an enclosed garden was lovely to sit out in and Louis, our Cockapoo, loved the free space. The lounge needs a couple of lamps to avoid the overhead light being on. As the light was going earlier we solved this by using the upstairs lamps. They were put back before we left! Certainly recommend to anyone.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and have noted your suggestions. Best wishes, Manor Cottages Property Owner

  • "Wonderful cottage!"

    Beautifully furnished and well equipped, just right for a small family or a couples weekend away. Right next to the river, perfect for an early morning or late afternoon stroll. Beautiful village with lots of options for meals and taking in the scenery.

The property

Settled at the heart of the bustling town of Lechlade-On-Thames, just a short walk from the banks of the River Thames, rests this charming, two-bedroom holiday home, Wharf Cottage.

Dating back to the 18th-century, this historical, mid-terrace property boasts tastefully-presented interiors, a spacious, enclosed rear garden, and outstanding proximity to nearby shops and pubs, making it an idyllic retreat for a family of four and their well-behaved dog who are seeking a relaxing escape near The Cotswolds.

Take a couple of steps down into your new home-from-home, where you'll be greeted by a collection of well-appointed living areas.

A galley-style kitchen awaits the designated chef, complete with all the appliances required to rustle up a delicious, home cooked dinner, whilst an inviting living/dining room with dining seating and a plush sitting area with Smart TV serves as the true social hub of the house.

When the weather allows it, head out back with a glass of your favourite tipple to relax in the enclosed garden, where you can raise a toast to your terrific getaway.

When sleep calls, be sure to refresh with a bath downstairs before you head on up to tuck you and your loved ones in for a well-earned rest in one of the two bedrooms.

When you're ready the next day, head out on foot into Lechlade-On-Thames to see what the town has to offer.

Be sure to load up on essentials at Budgens before you treat you and the family for a hearty pub lunch at the historical The Swan Inn.

Afterwards, embark on a peaceful walk along the banks of the tranquil River Thames, with the option of extending your stroll through the pristine greens of Riverside Park also available.

A short drive from your new dwelling will bring you to a plethora of noteworthy landmarks and attractions, including the Whelford Pool Nature Reserve, Stanton Country Park, and the National Trust spots of Buscot Park and The Buscot and Coleshill Estates.

You can also stop off at the Crocodiles of the World Zoo and the Cotswold Wildlife Park & Gardens on your journey into the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

About the location


Cirencester 13 miles; Oxford 24.5 miles.

The popular riverside market town of Lechlade lies on the edge of the southern Cotswolds and has many traditional pubs, antique shops, a Londis and a Co-operative including a fuel station. Lechlade is also home to the infamous Christmas shop (“Where it’s Christmas all year round”) and offers many river-based activities with River Thames trips available throughout the summer season. Lechlade is steeped in history and is an excellent base for many Cotswold and River Thames walks, including the Thames Path, plus excellent fly fishing is also on offer and the town plays host to many festivals throughout the year, including the annual three day Lechlade Music Festival, featuring over 80 bands and performers. Nearby, The Cotswold Water Park is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, covering 40 square miles, made up of 140 lakes; an area larger than the Norfolk Broads. Britain's largest water park, it offers a wide range of activities, including boating, water skiing, fishing (some of the finest trout fishing in the country), cycling, walking, golf and horse riding. Cirencester, known as The Capital of the Cotswolds is just a short drive away and boasts a rich and well-preserved heritage with a Roman Amphitheatre, Corinium Museum and Abbey Grounds. The Brewery Arts Centre offers visitors a unique arts and crafts shopping experience or visit the Bathurst Estate, home to the Cirencester Polo Club where some of the highest level of polo can be seen.
