Originally the Gamekeeper's cottage for a large local estate, this delightful property sits comfortably next to the Grade II listed bridge over the River Dickler and backs onto private woodland, in the small hamlet of Upper Swell. This spacious property provides an ideal rural setting for a family holiday, with Stow-on-the-Wold only a mile away with its eclectic mix of quality shopping, restaurants and pubs.
The Heart of England Way runs adjacent to the cottage, and a 15 minute walk along this public footpath, through the magnificent grounds of the Abbottswood Estate, will bring you to Lower Swell where the Golden Ball Public House offers good food, an open fire and a warm welcome. From Lower Swell, you can continue along the public footpaths for a further two miles, to the charming and much photographed villages of Upper and Lower Slaughter.
Rosemary Cottage in the adjacent village of Lower Swell is also available to book for five guests.
