About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, river frontage, beautiful secluded garden with stream

Newly refurbished cottage with interior design by award winning designers. Fresh new contemporary look was completed in May 2016 in a luxury boutique hotel style. Spring Road Cottage is located in one of the prettiest and most undiscovered of the Cotswold villages, Winson, in the Coln Valley. Only a couple of miles away from Barnsley and from the small town of Northleach there are many nearby gastropubs and luxury hotels which offer great food and spa facilities. The cottage has a beautiful garden with stream and river frontage. There is a deck overhanging the river which gives amazing country views.

About Andrew Dutson

I'm a classical musician, I grew up in Herefordshire on a farm. We moved out of this beautiful cottage a year ago to a larger house in a different village just a little further up the River Coln.

The cottage was stunning, beautifully decorated and presented, with excellent quality linens, furniture and equipment. The welcome hamper was thoughtful and lovely, we were humbled by the attention to detail and the sheer perfection of the cottage and every inclusion. Thank you so much for the opportunity to stay in this wonderful cottage, it was a perfect luxurious base to explore the Cotswolds, we would happily recommend this property and would love to stay again.

Picture Book Charming

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was right out of a picture book. My first glimpse was of the lovely garden and the stream running along side of the property. The variety of plants and flowers were delightful. We were able to Bar B Q and have brunch on the outside patio. Our trip was spent touring historic homes in the Cotswolds and the location was perfect for our purposes. The Swan Hotel is nearby for an evening out but we preferred to have most dinners in and the kitchen and dining area worked out well for our needs.

A stunning house,beautifully decorated and the garden was breathtaking !!

  • 5 of 5

For a quiet relaxing holiday this is the place for you! The cottage is situated in the small beautifully maintained hamlet of Winson.

Inside is stunning ,with lots of quirky features and so much attention to detail makes it a very comfortable but an unusual place to stay.

The garden is full of hidden treasures with fantastic landscaping and there is a river at the back where you can see an abundance of wildlife including Kingfishers, swans and deer. We were greeted with a welcome pack of goodies which was a special touch.

It was a great location to explore the Cotswolds

A quintessential English cottage with a contemporary flare

  • 5 of 5

We are hard to impress but this cottage was absolutely amazing inside and out. The yard and gardens are gorgeous. The entire area is gorgeous and you are close to good pubs/restaurants. We could not have been happier and highly recommend it.
