Hope Cottage is tucked away in the quintessentially English village of Longborough, an unspoilt village just two miles north of the famous market town of Stow-on-the-Wold. Longborough benefits from having a popular country pub, a community owned village shop and café, a historic parish church and even an opera house which puts on classic performances during the summer months. Situated in the heart of the North Cotswolds, the village is well-placed for exploring the many chocolate-box towns and villages nearby including Chipping Campden, Chipping Norton, The Slaughters, Bourton-on-the-Water, Blockley and Broadway.

Longborough is located on the side of a hill and offers glorious views over the Evenlode Valley. Surrounded by fantastic scenery, there are many walks and cycle trails on its doorstep to explore, including a pleasant circular route over to Moreton-in-Marsh and back via Bourton-on-the-Hill, passing close to the attractions of Batsford Arboretum and Sezincote House, the latter being home to a Mogul Indian Palace. Further afield destinations such as Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are easily accessible for day trips.
