Tarlton is a pretty and sleepy hamlet, off the beaten track but within ten minutes of the historic market towns of Cirencester and Tetbury.

A mile away via country path or dirt road is the local pub, the Tunnel House, originally built to house workers on the canal tunnel, whose 19th century classical entrance is adjacent.

For excellent gastro-pubs The Bell at Sapperton, Trouble House Inn, Potting Shed and Village Pub Barnsley are within 10 mins drive. For fine dining try Barnsley House, Calcot Manor or The Rectory.
From the doorstep there is excellent walking through the Bathurst Estate with the source of the Thames about a mile away.

The fine house and garden at Rodmarton is just down the road with Prince Charles’ Highgrove, Westonbirt (Arboretum and Beaufort Polo Club) and Bibury not much further.

There is of course much more and with Cotswolds towns like Stow, Chipping Camden and Burford and destinations like Bath and Cheltenham all within about 30 minutes drive Daffodil Cottage is your perfect base.

  • Lovely

    Posted by Richard on 15/03/2020

    The cottage is beautiful. Has a lovely old feel but the way it’s been refurbished makes it feel new as well. Was lovely and warm. Couldn’t fault anything about it in any way. The owner Martin was a great host.

  • Beautiful

    Posted by Katy on 05/03/2020

    We would highly recommend Daffodil Cottage. It is even more beautiful than in the pictures. We were staying for 2 nights on the way down to Cornwall for our honeymoon and it was the perfect romantic stop off on the way.

  • A dream...

    Posted by Roxanna on 25/02/2020

    Perfect postcard cottage located just minutes from Cirencester centre. The place was a dream and was a perfect place to relax, unwind and forget about reality. We went with out 5 month old and dog and loved every second. We will be sure to visit again!

  • We can't wait to visit again!

    Posted by Sally on 04/02/2020

    A beautiful, idyllic cottage. The perfect place to relax and take in the beautiful scenery. The cottage is ideally located to several places of interest and award winning eateries. The garden is absolutely beautiful and so incredibly peaceful. We loved the little touches waiting for us on arrival, the local produce basket, logs and kindling for the open fire and the most stunning roll top Bath. We can’t wait to visit again!

  • A wonderful place to stay

    Posted by Carolyn on 30/07/2018

    The cottage was a wonderful place to stay. Lovingly cared for and thoughtfully decorated. The owners brought out the perfection of this perfect home. We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend to anyone who wants to know what it is like to experience the cotswolds for which it is famous. Just use the postal code for the cottage and you will arrive to make your own special memories.

  • Ideal place for relaxation.

    Posted by Karen on 12/03/2018

    If you’re looking for relaxation and peace then this is the ideal place to stay. The cottage is compact but has everything you need. It is full of character with exposed beams and a wood burner and it’s comfortably and stylishly furnished. There are some great walks nearby and the local pub serves delicious food. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quite country break.

  • Magical stay!

    Posted by Adam on 24/11/2017

    We had an absolutely magical stay at this beautiful cottage and fell in love with the Cotswolds in the short time we were here. The cottage was very cosy and luxurious, we loved having breakfast in the garden seating area and having the log burner on during the evenings. This is a very special property and we will definitely be back! Thank you for making our stay so welcoming

  • A hub to explore the Cotswolds

    Created on 02/11/2017

    We stayed at Daffodil Cottage for 2 nights towards the end of October 2017. We were looking for a cosy cottage with a log burner which we could use as a hub to explore the Cotswolds. And that is exactly what we found at Daffodil Cottage.
    The cottage itself has been beautifully restored without losing its charm. The owner Martin provided us with very clear instructions and a very helpful guide to allow us to explore the area. The cottage was very clean and tidy throughout. And is also well equipped should you wish to cook the odd meal at home but we found the local pubs and restaurants a lovely treat. The Tunnel House Inn is a short walk from the cottage but you would need a car to explore beyond that.
    We hope to return to the cottage in the Summer so we can enjoy the beautiful gardens. October weather was a little too cold for that! We would definitely recommend Daffodil Cottage to friends and family looking for a country break.

  • Quaint!

    Posted by Janice on 18/08/2017

    The cottage was quaint, amazing, private & peaceful with beautiful surroundings. Very friendly neighbours.

  • Truly beautiful

    Posted by Richard H on 17/08/2015

    I would like to take this opportunity to say how truly beautiful the cottage is, with the thatched roof and exquisite surroundings.
    In just the short time we were in Tarlton, we were able to relax and take in the fresh air, pop into Cirencester and sink a couple of pints at the Tunnel House Inn (and wander back across the fields at dusk).
    Finally, the one thing with which we struggled with was the bluntness of the knives (we ended up purchasing a cheap knife and board which we left there, and hope will prove useful to others) Given the style and class of the cottage, may I respectfully suggest either a steel or a whetstone might be a suitable addition to the kitchen.
    That aside, it was a real pleasure to be able to stay in such a beautiful cottage, in such peaceful surroundings and my thanks and congratulations to you and Oliver's Travels on such a wonderful abode.
