SOPHIE | OUR COTTAGES
Next door to Kermit and set within the same walled garden, mainly laid to lawn, you have a perfect sheltered area in which to sit and take a breath of fresh air while enjoying a drink or eating al fresco on warm days. Within the same grounds of a period Cotswold stone farmhouse you have use of a large communal area should you wish to barbecue or picnic and for those looking for a genuine Cotswold base to return to after a day exploring, you will not be disappointed.
Five minutes’ drive will take you to Hidcote Gardens (National Trust, opens seasonally) well worth a visit, unspoiled Chipping Campden and its wonderful architecture, restaurants and excellent smaller shops. A little further away is Shakespeare’s Stratford on Avon, Cheltenham and Oxford. Among the many places of interest are Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle, Bourton on the Water with its river and many attractions. A week is not enough!

The cottage is next door to Kermit and is ideal as a safe envirionment for children to run around with pet hens, chicks and horses, sheep and cattle to see.
Within a five minute’s drive are Chipping Campden, Hidcote Gardens, Mickleton (home of the Three Ways’ Pudding Club). Shakespeare’s Stratford on Avon is an easy 20 minutes drive away. Here you can enjoy a boat ride, visit Shakespeare’s birthplace, take in a play or browse the shops.
The Cotswold Wildlife Park near Burford is a wonderful day out for the whole family; younger ones love to touch the animals at the Cotswold Farm Park at Temple Guiting with its rare breeds of sheep and cattle and listen to talks and watch displays. But if you prefer not to travel too much, Kermit (named after the owner’s pony) is a great little hideaway for the whole family and if you simply just want to enjoy some fresh Cotswold air or read a book. No smoking in the cottage please.
