Mill Stream Cottage is a fabulous property which sleeps 5+1 guests, in three bedrooms (with the +1 option being a single pull out bed in bedroom 3), with three ensuite bathrooms. Dating back to the 19th century and built from Cotswold stone, this delightful cottage has combined traditional features with contemporary décor and includes a cosy open fire, stone mullion windows and exposed stone. These character touches are complemented with modern facilities including wireless internet access, a Smart TV with Netflix subscription and a well-equipped kitchen. There is a secluded courtyard garden at the rear of the cottage and off-street parking is available for up to two small cars on the private driveway.


Mill Stream Cottage is situated in the chocolate-box village of Lower Slaughter, widely regarded as one of England's most beautiful villages. Picturesque cottages line the banks of the River Eye which flows from Upper Slaughter through Lower Slaughter and on into Bourton-on-the-Water. Standing proudly by the river is the 19th century flour mill which features a giant working waterwheel and an imposing chimney, an eye-catching landmark which is popular amongst keen photographers as it contrasts against the village dwellings. No longer operational, the mill building has been converted into a museum with a popular tearoom, and the village also benefits from a well-regarded country inn and a fine dining restaurant.

Lower Slaughter is surrounded by the stunning countryside of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Beauty, with many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep. The Wardens’ Way passes through the village and offers a pleasant stroll to the nearby villages of Upper Slaughter and Bourton-on-the-Water. Bourton is home to a range of pubs, restaurants, tearooms, shops and tourist attractions, including Birdland and the Cotswold Motoring and Toy Museum. The many other lovely towns and villages of the North Cotswolds are within easy reach and further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford are accessible for day trips.
