Beehive Cottage is a beautifully presented, Cotswold stone cottage, in the picturesque village of Poulton, near Cirencester. The interior designer owner has combined country style with modern facilities to create an inviting and elegant cottage, perfect for families or friends seeking an idyllic holiday in the Cotswolds.




Beehive Cottage is a quintessential Cotswold stone cottage, which is beautifully presented and is located in the small, picturesque village of Poulton, close to Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds. Although small, Poulton has a well-regarded pub, a village shop and Post Office, and there is a children's playground and playing field directly across the lane from the cottage. The village is very well placed for exploring the surrounding countryside, visiting the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, or visiting famous places such as Bath, Oxford or Stratford-upon-Avon.

Beehive Cottage has been lovingly renovated by its interior designer owner, who has brought out all the traditional character of the cottage, including the stunning inglenook fireplace with a secret spiral staircase behind it, old oak beams and exposed Cotswold stone walls. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Smart TV and a well presented kitchen.

The cottage sleeps a maximum of 6 people, in three bedrooms with two bathrooms. There is a beautiful, enclosed garden and off-street parking for two cars, with free on street parking readily available. Beehive Cottage is an ideal retreat for friends, couples or a family, looking for a luxurious holiday in a peaceful Cotswold village.


The front door of Beehive Cottage opens into the living room. The ground floor has flagstone tiling throughout and cast iron radiators. The following rooms are on the ground floor:

  • Living room: As with all the rooms, the dual aspect living room has been beautifully renovated to highlight its character features, in particular the wonderful inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. During the renovation, a secret stairway was discovered behind the fireplace, which provides an alternative route up to bedroom 3 (this staircase is narrow and steep). There is comfortable seating for six adults in the living room;
  • Study: Conveniently located between the living room and the kitchen, the study has a two-seater sofa and arm chair and can be used either as somewhere quiet to relax, or a sociable place to sit and chat to friends in the kitchen. Additionally, there is a smart desk providing the option to catch up on work;
  • Kitchen/dining room: A bright and spacious dual aspect kitchen/dining room, with lovely French doors out to the garden. The kitchen contains an electric range cooker, with a double oven and seven hobs, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, kettle, toaster and small Nespresso coffee machine. The large dining table seats up to eight adults in comfort and style;
