Honeysuckle House is an elegant family home which sleeps 11+1 guests, in five beautiful bedrooms (with the +1 option being a pull out bed in bedroom 5), with three bathrooms. Recently refurbished to a high standard, the property exudes style throughout, and the owners have cleverly designed the ground floor rooms so that they flow seamlessly into one another yet can be separated with glass doors if desired.

Every room has been tastefully decorated in a contemporary style and there is an abundance of modern facilities including wireless internet access, two TVs with Netflix subscriptions, and a well-equipped kitchen. These facilities are complemented by stunning features ranging from the glass roof lantern in the dining room, down to smaller touches like the pretty radiator covers and artwork. There is an enclosed garden with a trampoline, and a private driveway provides off-street parking for up to five cars.


Honeysuckle House is located in the hamlet of Ewen, a peaceful rural setting with a well-regarded country pub, The Wild Duck Inn (please note that the pub is currently closed for refurbishment and will reopen early next year). Just a mile from Ewen is the village of Kemble, with its general store, post office, Inn and direct train line to London. The Roman town of Cirencester is four miles away, with a variety of boutiques and restaurants to enjoy, and many more towns and villages of the Cotswolds are just a short drive away, including Tetbury, Nailsworth and Burford.

Ewen is surrounded by beautiful countryside, with many cycle routes and walks on its doorstep, including the Thames Path which starts in nearby Kemble and heads Eastwards following the course of the river towards London. The Cotswold Water Park offers many interesting activities for all ages, and further afield destinations such as Bath, Cheltenham and Oxford are within easy reach for day trips.
