Overview

About the property

Fully furnished and equipped apartment in beautiful village with pub and walks.

The Space:

Double bedroom, en suite shower room, fully equipped kitchen/living room with sofa bed, courtyard garden. WiFi, underfloor heating, freesat TV. Bed linen and towels are provided. On-drive parking is available for two vehicles.

The property is adjoined to the owner's family house, but is completely self-contained with its own access. There is space to store bicycles securely (behind a locked gate). To the rear there is a small, private courtyard garden.

The property is compact but well-equipped and newly decorated and furbished throughout. Everything is new and clean: the conversion was completed in 2016. It will sleep two comfortably. There is also a double sofa bed which will sleep a further two people, but floor space is very limited when the sofa bed is extended, and please be aware that access to the shower room is through the bedroom.

The Studio is self-catering, but breakfast provisions (milk, cereal, granola, porridge etc) as well as coffee and tea are provided.

Babies and children of all ages are very welcome.

The Area:

The village of Poulton has a shop, a well-equipped children's park, a church and a fantastic dining pub, The Falcon Inn, which is renowned for its quality food (booking for dinner, particularly at weekends, is advised, as they are often fully booked in advance). Poulton is also home to Performance Cycles (cycling club), and the area is very popular with cyclists at all levels.

The village is well situated 5 miles from Cirencester, 3 miles from Fairford, 4 miles from Bibury, and within a half-hour drive of Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford, Malmesbury and Bourton-on-the-Water. Kemble train station is 10 miles away, with the journey to London Paddington taking just under an hour and a half. Beautiful countryside is on the doorstep - just step outside and start walking!

Nearby attractions include the Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cotswold Water Park (with watersports and a beach), the famous village of Bibury (described by William Wordsworth as "the most beautiful village in England") with its trout farm, Cirencester with it boutique shops, spa hotel, gastropubs and historic architecture, Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park, and Swindon's Steam Museum and designer shopping outlet centre. National Trust attractions include Chedworth Roman Villa, Buscot Park and Hidcote Manor Gardens, and the fantastic Westonbirt Arboretum is also nearby.

Local events include the Royal International Air Tattoo in July, the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Cheltenham Festival in March, Cirencester's Phoenix Festival (family music weekend, usually the last weekend of August), and WOMAD world music festival which is held in the summer at Malmesbury. Westonbirt Arboretum holds autumn colour events, and Colesbourne Park holds snowdrops walks in the winter.

About Phil and Debbie Smith

We are a family of four living in the house next door to the Studio. We are often around if you have any queries. We both work, look after our children between us, and are also working to bring our home, which we bought as a project in 2015, back to its former glory.

The first thing we did when we moved in was converted the Studio, which we're now letting out to bring in some income to enable us to complete the main house. We love hosting people from all over the world in the Studio, and are happy to offer advice on local attractions and amenities.

Phil and Debbie Smith purchased this house in 2015

Why Phil and Debbie Smith chose Poulton

We think it offers the best of both worlds: the Studio is completely self-contained, with its own access and enclosed garden so you don't need to see us if you don't want to, but our main house is just next door, so we're often around if you do need anything or want any tips on the local area.

What makes this house unique

Fantastically positioned for exploring the Cotswolds, the Studio is warm and comfortable and offers a fully equipped kitchen and all the home comforts, such as feather duvet, underfloor heating, powerful shower, WiFi and freeview TV. You also have the benefit of your own courtyard garden and there is plenty of parking right outside. The village pub, the Falcon, is a typically Cotswold dining pub, a beautifully furnished stone building with plenty of character and amazing food - highly recommended if you don't want to cook every night!

Very nice property - good location

  • 5 of 5

The property is compact, but was fine for 3 adults and had absolutely everything we needed (hot water, clean towels, wi-fi, tv... even cereal and milk for breakfast). Good location in the Cotswolds and Poulton itself has pubs to eat at.

Necesita mejoras

  • 3 of 5

La casa esta bien en general, aunque es un poco pequeña. La cama del salón necesita ser cambiada ya que es imposible dormir en ella debido a que te clavas los hierros del armazón. Cocina y baño bien. La wifi se cortaba continuamente.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. We have just ordered a brand new sofa bed, table and chairs for future Studio guests. The wifi intermittency was a problem with BT which has now been fixed.
