About the property

The Bolt Hole - a cottage that sleeps 2 guests in 1 bedroom

Welcome to The Bolt Hole, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

The Bolt Hole is a former farm outbuilding that has been lovingly converted into a beautiful holiday cottage. It is peacefully located within the grounds of the owners' house and benefits from its own private and tranquil garden. Located just a five minute walk from the centre of the quintessential Cotswolds' market town of Minchinhampton, The Bolt Hole is ideally placed for exploring the surrounding countryside or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

The cottage has been refurbished in a contemporary style, whilst retaining elements of the original character, including exposed oak beams. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a large, well equipped kitchen/dining room. The cottage sleeps a maximum of two people, in one bedroom, with one bathroom. There is off street parking available. It is an ideal retreat for a couple looking for a peaceful getaway.

Owners

The Bolt Hole is located in the grounds of the owners' property and guests are invited into their converted barn for tea and cakes upon arrival.

Accessibility, health and safety

The property has narrow and steep stairs, and restricted height in the eaves on the first floor, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.

Smoking

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Photographs

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.
