Stable Cottage was formerly the stables for the Inn at Fossebridge, an historic family run 17th century coaching inn, and the cottage sits in the Inn's beautiful four acre grounds. Fossebridge is in the heart of the Cotswolds, located between Cirencester to the South and Stow-on-the-Wold to the North. Stable Cottage is ideally placed for exploring the surrounding countryside, including the picturesque Coln Valley, or visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds.

The graded II listed stables were solidly built in Cotswold stone and have recently been converted to form a beautiful, single storey cottage. The character of the original stables has been retained via the incorporation of stable doors and original oak beams into the cottage, and enhanced by the quality of the new finishings, including oak doors, windows and skirting boards. The character of the cottage is complemented by its facilities, including wireless internet access, a flat screen TV with DVD player and Sky, and a well presented kitchen.

Stable Cottage sleeps a maximum of 4+2 guests, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms (with the +2 being bunk beds for children, which are in a small bedroom that connects the master bedroom to the rest of the cottage). There is a private outdoor area with a table and chairs, and the grounds of the Inn at Fossebridge are open to guests. Off street parking is available. Stable Cottage is an ideal location for families or groups of friends, looking for a peaceful retreat.

The cottage benefits from having access to all of the Inn's services, including private dining facilities.

Fossebridge

Fossebridge is a small hamlet, situated on the historic Fosse Way, a Roman road running all the way from Exeter to Lincoln. The location is perfect for exploring the entire Cotswold area and beyond, being eight miles north of Cirencester and 11 miles south of Stow-on-the-Wold.

The area around Fossebridge showcases rural England at its very best, with many beautiful walks right on the doorstep, in particular through the stunning Coln Valley.

Chedworth

The village of Chedworth is in the County of Gloucestershire, seven miles from Cirencester, five miles from Northleach and eleven miles from Cheltenham. It is close to the Roman Fosse Way and is roughly 600 feet above sea level. Chedworth is an attractive Cotswold village, with old and modern Cotswold stone houses hugging the steep sides of the valley, which extends for almost two miles along a tributary of the River Coln. The village remains unspoilt and off the beaten track, with the exception of the famous Chedworth Roman Villa, which is less than a mile from the village, as the crow flies, but approximately five miles away by road.

Northleach

For many, Northleach is a Cotswold secret. Tucked away from the busy A40, between undulating hills, it stands at a crossroads on the Roman Fosse Way, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The streets in and around the ancient market place are rich in architectural interest, ranging from half-timbered Tudor houses and merchants' stores to the great House of Correction, (formerly 'The Cotswold Heritage Centre'), built in the 18th Century.

Most of the shops in Northleach are owned by independent proprietors and you will find something for everyone, from fresh bread and cakes, newspapers and magazines, to specialist wines, fine quality meats and cheese, dolls houses and furniture, music boxes, cosmetics, cards and souvenirs. Northleach also has a variety of eating places and public houses.

The Cotswolds

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the 'Heart of England'. The name Cotswold means 'sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides'.

The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.

Food & Drink

The Inn at Fossebridge:

The property benefits from being located in the beautiful grounds of the Inn at Fossebridge, providing guests with access to all the Inn's facilities, including its excellent eating and drinking options. The Inn's traditional Cotswold bar and integral restaurant are located in the oldest part of the building and are a wonderful retreat, rustic and cosy, with flagstone floors, beamed ceilings, two open log fires, a log burning stove and mellow Cotswold stone walls. In the spring and summer months the four acres of gardens around the lake offer a wonderful spot to enjoy a drink or two, lunch on a sunny afternoon or dinner on a balmy evening.

The Inn also has two adjoining Georgian dining rooms, overlooking the gardens and lake, which offer private dining facilities, as well as facilities for larger parties. The Inn is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There are different menus for lunch and dinner, as well as a Sunday lunch menu that changes weekly and separate children's menus.

Northleach:

For a small town, Northleach is fortunate to have a number of eating and drinking options, including:

•The Wheatsheaf Inn

•The Ox House Wine Company

•The Red Lion Inn

•The Sherborne Arms

Central Cotswolds:

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider Central Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Northleach and Burford containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets.
