Cosy 2/3 Bed Mews House (1) In Central Cirencester In The Cotswolds, England

Overview

Property

Updated: 02-Dec-2016
House in Cirencester, The Cotswolds - Central Location, Minutes Walk From The Town Centre and Local Attractions for 4 adults & 2 children

Battel Mews is a modern, yet traditionally styled 2/3 bedroom mews house set within a large, gated courtyard in the centre of the historic town of Cirencester for 4 adults and 2 children.

Inside the styling is luxurious, contemporary and comfortable, making this the ideal home away from home to relax in, but with all the convenience of the restaurants and shops nearby.

With all the comforts of home within easy reach of many Cotswold attractions this makes this the ideal place for families, couples and corporate lets alike. It sleeps up to 4 adults and 2 children; please note, we cannot accommodate 6 adults in this property.

THE ACCOMMODATION:

Inside there is a sitting room, leading through to a kitchen diner.

The living room has sofas and seating for six. There is a flat-screen, Freeview television, DVD player, CD player, Wi-Fi and a living flame gas fire.

Stairs from the living room lead up to a double bedroom with a king-sized bed and en-suite shower room, a twin bedroom, family bathroom with shower over the bath and a separate, secret mezzanine floor with beds suitable for up to two children or younger teenagers, but not adults as the beds are not full-sized. Access to the mezzanine floor is via a wooden ladder where there is very limited headroom. (If you are unsure about this part of the accommodation, please do ask for more details.)

The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge freezer, gas hob, electric oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, washer dryer, kettle, toaster and ample crockery and cutlery.

Linen and towels are provided and there is central heating throughout.

Outside, there is a gravelled courtyard with patio table and chairs where you can enjoy your morning coffee or relax after a day’s sightseeing. There is off-road parking for one car; although a second space can be made available by prior arrangement if required. The courtyard is shared by the owner's other property.

The minimum stay is 2 nights, except over the Christmas/New Year period, when it is 4 nights and mid-July to the start of September when it is 3 nights.

Competitive monthly rental rates available on request - please contact us for details.

THE LOCAL AREA:

Cirencester is often referred to as the ‘Capital of the Cotswolds’ and was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. In later years it became a very prosperous medieval wool town and today it still contains many interesting buildings with architectural styles spanning several centuries.

The award winning Corinium Museum, which houses one of the largest collections of Romano-British antiquities, is only five minutes’ walk away from the house.

A gentle stroll from the house brings you to the town centre, which has a pleasant mixture of independent and national shops. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from or if you want to stay in and cook, there are excellent independent butchers, fishmongers and delis in Cirencester and a large Waitrose within walking distance where you can stock up on provisions.

Within a short drive of Cirencester there are many other attractions to visit, including: Westonbirt Arboretum which is particularly stunning in autumn; the Cotswold Water Park for a range water sports and other recreational activities; Chedworth Roman Villa; the historic wool towns of Tetbury and Stroud and the beautiful countryside of The Cotswolds with stunning scenery, ideal for walking and rambling.

FURTHER AFIELD:

Cirencester borders the eastern edge of the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The area is well known for gentle hillsides (‘wolds’), outstanding countryside with river valleys, water meadows and beech woods, sleepy ancient limestone villages, historic market towns and for being ‘typically English’.

Throughout the area, the honey-coloured Cotswolds limestone features in buildings and stone walls acting as a common thread in seamlessly blending the historic towns and villages with their surrounding landscape. Offering breath-taking scenery ideal for keen walkers, the Cotswolds offers 3000 miles of public footpaths and offers one of the best kept ‘rights of way’ networks in the country.

The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty also contains a number of national and regional walking routes such as 'The Cotswolds Way Trail', 'Macmillan Way', 'Oxfordshire Way' and 'Shakespeare's Way'. Circular routes with self-guided leaflets are also plentiful.

The city of Gloucester is a short drive away, boasting a fine cathedral and the recently regenerated Gloucester Docks area. The spa town Cheltenham, is similarly nearby and is renowned for its many cultural festivals, elegant architecture, excellent shopping, and the racecourse which is the host of the internationally famous Gold Cup each March.

HOW TO GET THERE:

30 minutes from junction 15 on the M4

1 hour 20 mins from Bristol Airport

By rail:

1 hour 15 mins by direct train from London Paddington to Kemble railway station, only 6km away

BATTEL MEWS

  • 3 of 5

My family and I stayed in this property for 3 weeks last August. On the whole we enjoyed our stay and the property was located near to town. However, despite having sent two polite reminders for return of our deposit, we have yet to receive it and it is now 6 months since our stay.

Owner's Response: There was a mix up about the deposit which has now been resolved. We have sent the guest the money back.

Christmas Break

  • 3 of 5

1 Battel Mews is in an excellent location being in the centre of Cirencester and close to shops and restaurants. It has good car parking just outside the door of the property. We spent the Christmas week there and had a very pleasant time. However there were a few things that needed attending to - the radiators were not working when we arrived and we had to phone the owner who arrived within the hour. She was aware of the problem and informed us that she had put electric heaters in the rooms to use during our stay. The electric kettle in the kitchen worked intermittently and the second bedroom, which our children used, needed some attention - there was only one thin blind over the windows, the mattress on one of the beds was damp and the linen and duvets thin. On the positive side the rest of the accommodation was comfortable and pleasant and the owner had thoughtfully decorated the lounge and kitchen with Christmas decorations and left Christmas crackers and a bowl of satsumas for us which were all very much appreciated. With the above issues attended to I would recommend the property to family and friends as it is an attractive property, in a good location and excellent for touring the Cotswolds area.

Owner's Response: We are sorry about the problems that the guests encountered during their Christmas stay. We do take such feedback very seriously and are making improvements right away. We have had an engineer out to fix the heating already and the kettle has been replaced. Thank you for highlighting the damp issue in the second bedroom, it seems that a couple of roof tiles had come loose during the recent storms and that had caused a small leak. Thanks to this feedback we've been able to get that repaired too. The comment about the blinds has also been noted and we’re getting additional blackout blinds ordered to improve the situation for future guests, as it wasn’t a problem we’d been aware of before.
