Overview

About the property

Oak framed 2 Bedroom newly built Cottage overlooking lovely gardens and lake

The Cottage at Nell House is a beautiful oak framed conversion set in tranquil grounds. It is located on the edge of the small country village of Hannington in the South Cotswolds where the counties of Wiltshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire meet. The village has a "pub" within walking distance and is a great base for exploring the Cotswolds in your car. It is a 90 minute drive from Heathrow Airport.

The cottage has an open plan kitchen living area on the ground floor, with a well equipped kitchen including dishwasher and microwave, and a seating area including two sofas and large TV. There is a twin bedroom on the ground floor as well as a toilet and shower room. The entire upstairs floor is an en-suite double bedroom with separate seating area, sofa and TV. The staircase is open to the ground floor.

The cottage is in the landscaped grounds of Nell House, with a large decking area, with BBQ, overlooking the lake and surrounded by wildlife such as moorhens, ducks, fish and if you're lucky deer and a kingfisher.

There are extensive grounds including a croquet lawn and fields with farm animals.

Idyllic Nell House

  • 5 of 5

Nell House is a totally idyllic stay, far enough from the hustle of big cities to feel tranquil yet close enough too many major attractions to be convenient. James and Jo were lovely, hospitable and helpful. The cottage itself is perfect for a family of four, including a little one. The surround is breathtaking, we loved listening to the sheep, cows, and birds while sitting near the pond and watching the moorhen chicks scurry around. We would love to return to the Nell House and take in more of the quaint villages that surround it.

Just what we were looking for....

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you drive through the main gate the setting is absolutely amazing.

We drove down the long driveway and first noticed the beautiful well maintained garden and pond, then the magnificent main house appears with it's typical Cotswold look. Just in front of the pond is the charming Cottage itself.

(I wish I had taken some photos for reference, as I draw as a hobby and it would make for a lovely home Portrait!!)

The Cottage was clean and well equipped even for those staying for a longer period.

We arrived quite late and our first nights sleep was not very comfortable, however Jo went out the same day and purchased "mattress toppers" for all the beds which made a big difference. James and Jo were friendly and helpful throughout our short stay which confirms exellent customer service.

We would recommend this property to friends and relatives and hope to return when visiting the area again.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay and we do hope you return. The mattresses are a challenge for us as people's tastes differ so much - what one client likes another dislikes. All the mattresses were replaced this year and now also have thick toppers which will hopefully accommodate all tastes.
