  • About the Property

    Bay Tree Cottage offers you the best of both worlds during your holiday in The Cotswolds. It’s conveniently located near the centre of one of The Cotswolds’ most popular villages with shops and cafes a few minutes on foot, yet is set on a quiet road just far enough away from the crowds to enjoy sanctuary. It’s also a great choice for a family, a small group of close friends or two couples, especially if some of you like to do your own thing every now and again. The cottage is handy for individuals to come and go for an hour or so as they please, whether that’s teenagers wanting to escape their parents and explore on their own, or the shopaholic amongst you that can’t get enough of the charming shops. Very homely and finished to a high standard, this detached cottage is perfect for a leisurely long weekend or an active week of exploring.

  • The space

    Bay Tree Cottage has plenty of curb appeal with its double-fronted, creamy-coloured Cotswolds stone facade and delightfully-scented lavender plants and bay trees either side of the doorway.

    Step inside and you’ll find a luxurious lounge with two comfy leather sofas, tasteful feature lamps and a limestone fireplace with an electric stove-style fire that gives a cosy glow on a chilly evening. When you return from a day out or dinner in the village, it’s the perfect place to retire to, have a chat and settle down to watch a film on the 32-inch television, which has Freeview channels and Netflix.

    The kitchen/diner is light and bright, and has everything you will need to prepare meals ‘at home’ and self-cater with ease, including an oven and hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and washing machine. There is also a compact dining table and chairs that seats four guests.

    Being of a dormer bungalow style, the cottage’s first bedroom is on the ground floor and features a king-size sleigh bed, a 32-inch television and French doors that lead into the small garden. The bedroom also has an en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower, a heated towel rail and a demisting, illuminated mirror.

    Upstairs is the second bedroom which has a zip-link bed, meaning that it can be set up as either a king-size or two singles for you. The bedroom also has a 24-inch television and an en-suite bathroom with a large roll top bath, a heated towel rail and a demisting, illuminated mirror.

    Outside there is a courtyard garden with a patio area furnished with a bistro table and chairs. It’s a lovely spot to sip your morning tea or coffee in peace, or fire-up the BBQ for a delicious lunch of local meats and grilled veggies. There is also driveway parking.

Local Info

The neighbourhood

The cottage is within a few minutes’ walking distance of the village high street where you can pick up groceries, shop for local crafts in small independent shops, grab an ice-cream and walk alongside the river, or dine at tea rooms and restaurants. Attractions including the Model Village, Cotswold Motoring Museum, The Dragonfly Maze and Birdland Park and Gardens are also within walking distance.

Set at the edge of beautiful countryside, you can begin long, circular walks to neighbouring Cotswolds villages from your doorstep. Try the picturesque walk to Little Rissington which takes in fields, the river and the historic Rissington Mill. Or, walk to Upper Slaughter and Lower Slaughter, stopping en route at Naunton. Whichever you choose, you’ll be rewarded with picture-perfect scenes of quaint cottages, cobbled lanes, pretty churches and places to grab a coffee or refuel with lunch and a pint.

Getting around

For convenience, we recommend travelling to the cottage by car. However, the nearest train station is Moreton-in-Marsh on the Cotswolds Line which is about 8 and a half miles away. Direct train services operate between Moreton-in-Marsh and London and Worcester. You can pre-book a taxi to take you from Moreton-in-Marsh to the cottage.

Once at the cottage, if you would like to explore by public transport, buses run from Bourton-on-the-Water to Moreton-in-Marsh and also to Cheltenham (about 20 miles away), where you can connect with buses or trains to take you further afield.
