Dating back to the early 18th century, this picture-perfect Grade II listed home has an abundance of character features including exposed wooden beams, natural stone flooring, stone mullion windows and a large inglenook fireplace with a cosy wood burning stove.

Location

Greenview Cottage is peacefully positioned overlooking the village green of Little Barrington, a quintessential English village in the Windrush Valley. Picturesque honey coloured Cotswold stone properties line the lanes and the award-winning village pub, The Fox Inn, has an idyllic setting alongside the River Windrush. Surrounded by the breathtaking scenery of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are many walks and cycle routes to explore, as well as popular attractions including the Cotswold Wildlife Park, a great day out for all the family including four-legged companions, Birdland Park and Gardens and Asthall Manor.

The chocolate-box medieval town of Burford is just three miles away, home to a number of independent boutiques, galleries, tearooms and restaurants. Considered the southern gateway to the Cotswolds, the High Street descends from the high Wolds down to the River Windrush, offering stunning views across the valley. Little Barrington’s central location within the Cotswolds makes it a good base for exploring the other lovely towns and villages in the area including Stow-on-the-Wold, Cirencester, Bourton-on-the-Water and Kingham. World famous destinations such as Blenheim Palace, Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon and Bath are also easily accessible for day trips.
