Set on the edge of the Cotswolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Distiller’s Cottage allows a relaxing exploration of the many tranquil footpaths and bridleways from your front door. With 3,000 miles of public footpaths in the region, you won’t be short of gentle hills, river valleys and limestone villages to discover.
Other highlights in the region include the beautiful Charlecote Park estate, the alleged site of a failed poaching attempt by William Shakespeare, who would later find more success with a quill. Or there’s the spectacular baroque architecture of Blenheim Palace where Winston Churchill once spent his days strolling through the 2100 acres of gardens and grounds. In fact, you could look at the Cotswolds as a microcosm of English history, or at least the kind of place that many great figures from English history liked to call home.
Since an Englishman’s home is his castle, we should probably tell you a bit more about the property! As the name suggests, Distiller’s Cottage is a converted detached cider house. You’ll find exposed stonework and a woodburner in the front room, both of which are perfect for enjoying cosy nights in the Cotswolds. There’s also Wi-Fi and Freeview TV if you find it hard to leave your creature comforts behind.
Outside there’s a small courtyard garden with sitting-out area, BBQ and furniture. There’s also parking space for one car.
Distillers Cottage sleeps 2 happy holidaymakers and pets are allowed. If you fancy a cosy retreat in the Cotswolds then you can find more info and make a booking on the property’s listing on cottages4you.
