The Cobblers Cottage holds a fabulous locaion in the pretty village of Southrop, close to the popular towns of Burford, Lechlade and Fairford. It makes a fantastic base for those wishing to stay-in-style while exploring the wonderful Cotswold region and all that it has to offer.

The cottage has been beautifully modernised, retaining its original features including the beamed ceilings and inglenook fireplace. The neutral colour scheme used throughout helps to give it a sophisticated feel and create a relaxing environment. Cobblers Cottage can comfortably accomodate up to six guests, however, for bigger groups it is possible to make use of the sofa bed in the living room to sleep an extra two. On the ground floor is the main living accomodation which comprises of a cosy lounge, a dining room and a fully equipped kitchen. Also on the ground floor is the first of the double bedrooms as well as a seperate shower room. Heading upstairs guests will find the king-size master bedroom, a second double room and a luxurious family bathroom.

Outside, there is a large garden, approximately a 1/4 of an acre in size with manicured green grass for the children to enjoy. There is also a terrace complete with dining facilities, the perfect spot for enjoying your morning cup of coffee or for dining al fresco on a summer's evening.

The owners have won a number of awards for their responsible, ethical and sustainable approach to tourism. The cottage is sustainable due to their "small steps approach", from insulating the properties, installing underfloor heating, LED lighting, purchasing LED lighting, purchasing green electricity to composting and recycling.

****2021 - The owners are thrilled to have received Listed planning permission for a new kitchen and dining area at the Cottage. They started work on the project during the lockdown and envisage that it will be completed in spring 2022.
The area of the new build is where the outside table and small patio area were. Work is only taking place when the Cottage is vacant. The area is secured for guests safety with a screen to blend into the garden. The vast majority of the garden and the Cottage is unaffected by this work, the two elements being joined together in spring 2022.***

  • Perfect little cottage

    Posted by Caroline on 04/07/2022

    We had the most amazing weekend, the cottage is gorgeous, all little details thought of from robes to fresh flowers in the rooms and the collection of teas….highly recommend.

  • A terrific place for a winter getaway

    Created on 10/01/2022

    We had a wonderful stay for a pre Christmas get together. Cosy, welcoming and brilliantly positioned to explore all of the Cotswolds. The garden looked amazing and so we would love to return in the summer. Thank you Louise and Chris for a great stay.

  • Really great

    Posted by Julia on 17/07/2018

    Thank you for having us. We have absolutely loved our stay, especially as we booked at such late notice. We loved the touches like the fire being ready to burn and the herbs in the kitchen.

  • Thank you !!

    Posted by Franny on 17/07/2018

    We have had a lovely week at your excellent cottage. Came for a family ‘surprise’ birthday and everyone has loved it here. Been to Blenheim Palace, Bampton, and Highcleve Castle. We especially enjoyed the garden and we hope to come back again soon.
