About the property

Cottage in Fairford, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - Newly Renovated in a Contemporary Style

Originally a 16th Century bakery, Wishbone is a period Cotswold Stone Cottage in a row of terraced limestone property on Milton Street in the pretty market town of Fairford, which is situated in the beautiful Coln Valley and the Cotswold Water Park. Wishbone has recently undergone complete restoration, retaining the essence of a Cotswold Cottage blended with modern colour and current technology in a contemporary style. Comfortably furnished and well equipped to a high standard on the background of the original flagstone and wooden floors and exposed stone walls. It provides guests with an elegant relaxing stay. Everything is catered for in Fairford, and guests are able to walk into the town to shop and eat. You can easily join the many beautiful walks in and around Fairford. Further afield is the Roman town of Cirencester, the village of Bibury with its trout farm and the famous Arlington Row, Burford Wildlife Park, Westonbirt Arboretum, and the Spa town of Cheltenham are all close by.

Excellent Stay

We loved Wishbone Cottage and would recommend anyone to stay there. It was very clean and comfortable and we also loved the Summerhouse at the back. IT is walking distance to the pretty village of Fairford, and Karen the owner was extremely helpful with all the information she sent us. WIshbone cottage is an excellent cottage and I can't recommend it enough. Jane Pratt

Easter weekend 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely few days at Wishbone and all three of us felt totally at home. Such a comfortable and homely place, Karen certainly made us feel very welcome with the chocolate brownies and elderflower drink.

All her recommendations were very useful, we had some great meals in Fairfield and the vicinity.

We hope to be back one day.

Beautiful cottage, clean and comfortable with all you would need. Particularly loved the bed/bedding with cotton sheets and duvet which provided such a cosy night's sleep! Great location for exploring the beautiful Cotswolds. Karen is so friendly and helpful and we would definitely stay again.

Gorgeous cottage renovated with love and attention to detail.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Wishbone Cottage,we were reluctant to leave. On our arrival we were welcomed by Karen Simon and their two daughters, what a lovely family they are. Nothing was too much trouble for them to ensure our break was perfect - which it was! Cottage is furnished to a high standard and you want for nothing, they have thought of it all. Scrumptious welcome tray in kitchen for us, fab comfy bed with gorgeous linens and fluffy bath towels - we were spoilt. The village is quaint,lovely walks and nice coffee shop and pubs to tempt you. We will definitely return later this year. Would highly recommend this gorgeous cottage to anyone looking for "fab place to stay".
