Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.
St Mary's Cottage is a truly exceptional property, set in its own private garden at the end of a quiet lane in the heart of Lower Slaughter, widely regarded as one of England's most beautiful villages. The cottage is set back from Copse Hill Road, which was named as the most romantic street in Britain in a 2011 online poll. Despite its tranquil setting, the cottage benefits from having a beautiful country inn and two of the Cotswolds finest restaurants a short stroll away, as well as being ideally placed for exploring the wider Cotswold region. The well known market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are both close by, with their wide ranges of pubs, shops and restaurants.
Built to the highest quality from Cotswold stone, with a character in keeping with the village, St Mary's Cottage has been immaculately furnished in a warm, contemporary style. The traditional character of the building has been complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a 3D flatscreen TV and a large, well equipped kitchen/dining room.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms (one en-suite) and a downstairs cloakroom. Off street parking is available for up to four cars and a garage is available for the storage of bikes. The property is the perfect place for a family or a group of friends seeking an idyllic rural retreat.
Booking and payment

Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than six guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
