Property

Updated: 05-Dec-2016
2 Bedroom Cottages near Bibury, Cotswolds, - Peaceful Location with Private Gardens

Lilac and Lavender Cottages are 200 yards from our farmhouse home. Until the 1970's they were farm-workers cottages but have now been transformed into two comfortable holiday cottages. Each cottage has its own private garden with lawn, trees and shrubs, garden furniture and barbecues so you are able to relax at home in this peaceful area. The cottages are on the southern edge of the Cotswolds, facing south, 6 miles from the market town of Cirencester with its Roman history and 2.5 miles from Bibury, described by William Morris as the most beautiful village in England.

Charming, cozy cottage surrounded by open countryside

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very well appointed with good quality fixtures and fittings. It has everything you need for your stay (except a dishwasher!). The garden is very large for children or dogs to play. It could not be in a more quiet or secluded setting. If you want relaxation this is the place to be, yet only 5 or 6 miles from Cirencester. Loved staying here.

We had a very nice stay. The cottage although in a quiet area was well placed for visiting other places of interest. Our westie enjoyed the garden which was very secure. We would recommend it.i

Ideal for two people. Comfy and warm.

  • 5 of 5

Lilac Cottage was in a beautiful situation and was so cosy. It was well equipped, only thing missing was a dishwasher but as we didn't do much cooking, washing up wasn't an onerous task. Lots of lovely pubs/restaurants in easy reach as were Cirencester, Burford etc for supplies. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend it.

Hopefully 1st of many stays at Lilac Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lilac Cottage is in an excellent location - only 5 miles from Cirencester so don't bother taking food supplies with you as you can stock up at supermarket in the town. Only 2 miles from Bibury (delicious ice-cream from Trout Farm). Main bedroom is very big with comfy king sized bed, water pressure is superb, large enclosed lawned garden with table/chairs and sun loungers, well equipped kitchen, easy access into useful utility/downstairs w.c., beautiful views from front of property and pleasant walks from the door. Owners Caroline & Rory are on hand and helpful if you need any assistance. We're hoping to return summer 2016.

Maison charmante. Endroit idéal pour rayonner. Les propriétaires sont disponibles et accueiillants. Les enfants ont apprécié le vieux court de tennis.

Notes:

  • Notes on accommodation: In both cottages fresh flowers from our garden, crisp white bedlinen and large towels are provided each week. A tea tray is available on your arrival. The beds are always made up with duvets with a suitable 'tog' value for the time of year. Hairdryers are in the master bedrooms. Although we ask you leave the cottages clean and tidy, we take pride in ensuring the cottages are always cleaned and checked thoroughly before your arrival. All electricity and night store heating are included in the price. We provide enough wood for your first evening then you can either buy more locally or from us. Outside: The large private enclosed gardens are a great favorite with families with dogs or children or couples looking for a bit of peace. There is ample garden furniture and shade to sit under. Each cottage has its own barbeque. In Spring the gardens are full of blossom, and many visitors have commented on the bird-life. We have a tennis court near our house which visitors may use by arrangement. The field in front of the house are often grazed by horses and sheep and our pet pig, Clarissa is a great attraction! There is parking for 2 cars per cottage. The gardens have connecting gates if friends are renting both cottages.
