About the property

Holiday Home in Lechlade-on-Thames, Cotswolds, Gloucestershire - Peaceful Location Yet Close To Amenities, Pretty Walks By Thames, Year Round Pursuits

Kent Place is a short footpath with four old semi-detached cottages just a stones throw from the centre of this beautiful historic village with its shops, pubs, restaurants and most interesting places to browse for antique and collectible items. Beneath the famous "Halfpenny Bridge" lies the Riverside Restaurant which is a great place to watch for water birds, have a relaxing drink or meal or hire a boat for a trip up the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

June 2010. Definitely the best place we have stayed in in England. Sharon Young-Lai (Canada).

July 2010. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Julie Ahay Cornwall.

Nov 2009. It has been such a pleasure staying in such an old cottage: an old path off an old street with lovely walks along the river Leach (and a kingfisher!) Thank you for the personal and friendly feeling and provision of extras. Tony Coombs London and Yorkshire.

Ideal bolt hole

  • 4 of 5

My American family stayed here for the second time and thoroughly enjoyed it again. They were very comfortable and particularly enjoyed being in the middle of Lechlade but well away from the bustle. It is a real home from home.

Perfect all the way!

  • 4 of 5

We had the most wonderful week in Lechlade. Walking distance into this cute little town. From the day we arrived we felt at home and welcomed. Great ammenities for a family, close to Swindon with a definite Cotswold feel.

Highly recommended.

Lovely old cottage, well equipped and clean.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this property, it was clean and well equipped. The owner left wine, sweets and milk, plus tea, coffee and sugar.The only let down was the on street parking. It was not plentiful and we often struggled to park close to the cottage. This made loading and unloading luggage and shopping difficult.

A Wonderful Weekend in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful couple of nights in this cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds. It was perfectly located within reach of a number of local attractions, which were suitable for adults and children. The town of Lechlade is lovely for a wander around as there is a nice riverside walk and a number of pubs to enjoy the afternoon/evening in.

The cottage itself was perfect for our needs. We found it to be very clean and everything we needed was supplied so it was very comfortable. The two bedrooms were very cosy and the garden was absolutely beautiful for an afternoon of sitting in the sun.

I would definitely recommend this cottage and would certainly visit again.

Our second stay in this lovely cottage.

  • 4 of 5

Delightful cottage tucked away from the village and in a very peaceful location.

On our arrival there was flowers, wine, milk and biscuits! These were appreciated.

The cottage was clean and tidy.

The owners were extremely helpful when my husband left behind his wallet. They quickly located it and arranged for the safe return of the item and the cash that was inside; very honest owners.

We love the open fire and so did our dog who fell asleep on the floor near to the fire every evening!

We intend to revisit the cottage next year.
