About the property

Cottage in Tarlton, Nr. Cirencester, Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - In a Peaceful and Idyllic Rural Location in the Heart of the Cotswolds

[Please note changeover days are Friday/Monday before booking i.e. Weekends ONLY Friday to Monday Weeksays ONLY Monday to Friday]

Dating back to 1624 and immaculately restored this beautiful little one bedroom designer cottage oozes character. With its own large garden and country views it is located in the peaceful village of Tarlton whilst being close to chic Cirencester and Prince Charles' Tetbury. The owners, an art advisor and writer, have taken great care in creating a unique interior of great style in a restoration of the highest quality. All the original features have been retained with natural floors, beamed ceilings and an inglenook fireplace. There are velvet sofas, beautiful oriental carpets, fine art and classic books. Lighting is discrete and atmospheric whilst a log stove provides a delightful atmosphere.

About Martin & Julie

We have been visiting the Cotswolds for many years and loved it so much that we decided to move here with our retired guide dog - Lola the Labrador.

Why Martin & Julie chose Cotswold district

Asphodel Cottage was our own Cotswold retreat for several years before we decided to move to the area. Since then we have been pleased to rent it out to careful and discerning holidaymakers.

We bought the cottage as a very run down and neglected property and carefully restored it from earth and bare walls using traditional materials and methods.

Using our design and art consultancy experience we added a stylish and comfortable interior together with top quality appliances, satellite TV and unlimited wifi.

We hope that you enjoy the cottage as much as we still often do.

What makes this cottage unique

We think that we have the only detached thatched cottage for two persons in the Cotswolds.

Together with its private garden, peaceful rural location and it is a pretty and unique property.

It is a perfect romantic retreat - so much so that we have lost count of the honeymoons, mini-moons and marriage proposals at the cottage. We already get regulars coming back for anniversaries of their special stays.

And all within 90 minutes of London and in the heart of the Cotswolds…!

The "thatched roof cottage" as we referred to it, is beautiful!

  • 4 of 5

The "thatched roof cottage," as we referred to it, is beautiful! The cottage itself is full of character and comfort (and full of modern luxuries). The grounds and garden are beautiful--full of herbs and apple and plum trees to augment your meals. We were thrilled to have the time to relax at the cottage.

This was a beautiful cottage set in a picturesque village .

  • 5 of 5

We had a five day stay and found the little touches of wine , fresh flowers and biscuits lovely . The gardens were beautiful and it was great to be able to sit out and take in the county air on the outdoor settees . The local pub was a 15 minute walk across the fields and the staff were so friendly and food great ! Felt utterly relaxed and hope to come back very soon

Amazing cottage

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely immaculate little cottage! Romantic and peaceful it was a perfect bolt hole for us to get away for a few days. The design has been given lots of thought and it is very modern and tasteful whilst still showing off the history. Local area great too with lots to see. Along with all extras and a bottle of Prosecco on arrival (thanks!) this was a magical place - will be back.
