With an abundance of local walking and cycling trails, plus places of interest including Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe, The Cotswold Brewing Company and the Dragonfly Maze in Bourton-on-the Water, there are plenty of things to do nearby to keep visitors occupied.

Note: Laurel Tree Cottage does not accept hen, stag or similar parties. Note: Laurel Tree Cottage does not accept corporate, commercial or work-related bookings. Note: The second-floor super-king-size bed is zip/link and can be twin beds on request. Note: Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by up to three additional infants. Note: Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than 11 guests at the property. Note: For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure. Note: At the owners' request, we ask that guests do not park on the tarmac driveway located just outside the electric gate as this belongs to a neighbouring property. Note: The property’s garden is enclosed, however young children and dogs should be supervised outside at all times. Note: This is a period property and has many character features including some low doorways, multiple floors and steps from the driveway down to the kitchen, all of which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility. Note: The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk. Note: The AGA is lit between October and April, and can be requested for the summer months during the booking process; though please note, in the summer, the kitchen can become quite hot due to heat from the AGA, so guests may prefer to leave the AGA unlit and use the electric oven, two-ring induction hob and microwave as alternatives.
