Sitting in the heart of the picturesque town of Tetbury, Midsummer Cottage has been completely and lovingly refurbished to welcome you into an idyllic, romantic retreat for two. It is a private paradise for your next countryside getaway. With one dreamy bedroom, a smart ensuite, a beautiful living room, a fabulous kitchen diner and a gorgeous furnished courtyard garden, it is a wonderful pick for a break away.
 
Tetbury, the second largest town of the Cotswolds, sits in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is the home of King Charles III and Queen Camilla, and their sensational gardens at Highgrove are a must-visit. Tetbury was an important market for Cotswold wool and yarn during the Middle Ages. Today it is famous for its royal connections and is sprinkled liberally with boutiques, independent shops, cafes and restaurants.
 
Midsummer Cottage is a gorgeous, honey-coloured stone cottage that is nestled in the central conservation district. The cottage dates back to the 1800s and enjoys much traditional charm and top-notch modern comforts. Its sleek, contemporary designer interior boasts attractive wallpapers, a romantic four-poster bed under historic eaves, a sumptuous sofa and bang-up-to-date fittings. It only takes five minutes to stroll into the historic centre of the town, so it is a fabulous base for exploring the town, visiting Highgrove and touring the southern Cotswolds.
 
Midsummer Cottage’s stunning interior pays respect to this wonderfully historic building. Its mellow stone is warm and inviting, and the walled courtyard garden is a great bonus, the perfect spot for some alfresco dining or picking up your holiday books. The cottage has been refurbished from top to bottom and is seriously comfortable. Midsummer Cottage is built over three levels with a wonderful modern kitchen diner on the ground floor with access to the garden, a living room on the first floor and your bedroom and ensuite bathroom on the top floor. An attractive spiral staircase takes you between floors. The kitchen boasts excellent appliances for your self-catering stay though you will almost certainly want to sample some of Tetbury’s excellent restaurants. The living room is smart, elegant and thoroughly modern with its lavish velvet sofa, trendy wallpaper, wooden flooring, wall-mounted television and contemporary electric log effect fire. It is a great place to cosy up for a movie.
 
Upstairs, your bedroom suite is perfect for long lazy lie-ins with its pretty four-poster bed, adorned with luxury linens and quality soft furnishings, its television and its immaculate ensuite bathroom. This comes with fluffy towels too. You will not want to rush to leave this romantic pad!
 
The charming private courtyard garden enjoys quality outdoor furniture, perfect for winding down in the evening and enjoying the fresh air.
 
There is unlimited free parking outside the door and an off-road reserved parking space. You can even bring your furry friend to join you at Midsummer Cottage.

Midsummer Cottage is nestled in the heart of the historic town of Tetbury, home to Highgrove and King Charles III and Queen Camilla. The town is beautiful and brimming with boutiques, shops, pubs, restaurants and spas. Suppose you require a little rejuvenation and relaxation during your romantic stay. In that case, you can visit the fabulous Mayfair & Grace spa in Tetbury, The Beauty Spot at Cherish, the award-winning Calcot Manor Spa, or the super luxury Whately Manor Spa.
 
Tetbury has retained many of its ancient buildings. The Grace I listed Market House, built in 1655, is the hub of the town and home to twice-weekly markets. Numerous craft fairs and art exhibitions are also held in the upstairs room of the Market House. Tetbury is an architectural gem, with many of the wool merchant’s houses remaining the same as in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Parish Church of St Mary’s has one of the UK's tallest and most elegant spires. Tetbury is famous for its independent shops, including antique shops, vintage and interior shops, exclusive boutiques and the Highgrove shop.
 
Tetbury is a brilliant location to tour the Cotswolds. It is ten miles from Cirencester, five miles from Malmesbury and enjoys easy access to Bath. There are plenty of super houses, including the Elizabethan Chavenage House and Rodmarton Manor. Other popular excursions include The National Arboretum and Cerney House Gardens.
 
Westonbirt is home to the National Arboretum and is breathtaking in the autumn. There are walking trails, events for children and a programme of excellent summer concerts.
 
Another popular excursion is a polo experience day at Beaufort Polo Club. You can learn to hold a mallet, balance with a wooden horse and stick and ball on one of their beautiful ponies. There are options for delicious picnic lunches, and you can watch the professionals play their Chukkas.
 
Cirencester is the largest town in the Cotswold District. Its notable attractions include the Corinthian Museum with its huge collection of Roman relics, the 12th century Church of St John The Baptist, and its numerous lush green parks.
 
Gloucester is nestled between the Cotswolds and the Forest of Dean. It boasts a history dating back to Roman times and is home to many museums and attractions. Gloucester Docks is a vibrant leisure destination for shopping, dining and drinking set against the backdrop of the beautifully restored Victorian warehouses and the Gloucester Sharpness Canal. Sports fans enjoy the roar from ‘The Shed’ at Gloucester Rugby and at Gloucester City AFC’s new stadium.
 
Painswick is a historic wool town called ‘The Queen of the Cotwolds’. It is surrounded by some of Gloucestershire’s most wonderful countryside and features many gorgeous buildings built with the mellow Cotswold stone from the local quarry on Painswick Beacon. It sits halfway along the Cotswold Way National Trail with marvellous hikes. Painswick hosts an annual Arts Festival and the Art Couture Painswick Festival. The Rococo Garden is a short walk from the centre of the town, a flamboyant garden designed in the mid 1700s with carpets of snowdrops and other gorgeous plants and flowers.

The Birdland Nursery is endearing, where children can watch eggs hatching and chicks taking their first steps.
