The property

Moreton-in-Marsh 4.2 miles Star Cottage is an immaculately presented Cotswold stone property which sleeps four guests, in two elegant bedrooms, with two bathrooms. Dating back to 1845 to house the family of a worker at the local brewery, there are many wonderful character features such as the exposed Cotswold stone feature wall, exposed beams, flagstone flooring and cosy wood burning stove. These features have been complemented by contemporary design and modern facilities including wireless internet access, a Smart TV, DVD player and Bluetooth speakers. Two picturesque gardens lie to the front and rear of the cottage and free on-street parking is readily available. Star Cottage is one of a row of six traditional cottages on a quiet lane in the peaceful village of Little Compton. With little traffic besides the occasional horses, this idyllic village benefits from having an attractive Manor House, a historic Norman church and a popular country pub, The Red Lion, just a five minute walk from the cottage. Little Compton is surrounded by glorious countryside which forms part of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with many lovely country walks and cycle routes on its doorstep. There are also a number of tourist attractions nearby including The National Trust owned Chastleton House and Garden, The Rollright Stones, the Cotswolds Distillery and Batsford Arboretum. The village is close to the popular Cotswold market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Moreton-in-Marsh, and the much loved Daylesford Organic Farm shop is only six miles away, selling fresh local produce and offering a number of dining options. Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Cheltenham and Oxford are easily accessible for day trips. The front door of Star Cottage is accessed from a quiet lane via a pretty front garden. The front door opens into the dining room and the following rooms are on the ground floor: Dining room: With a flagstone floor, antique pine furniture, wooden dining table with seating for four, and a Bose Bluetooth speaker; Living room: This spacious, cosy room has a cosy wood burning stove, three-seater sofa and two armchairs, wooden desk and chair, wall-mounted Smart TV with Netflix access for account holders only, DVD player, small selection of books and board games, plus a dog bed; Kitchen: Overlooking the lovely private back garden, with a breakfast bar and stools for two, the kitchen is equipped with a double electric oven with four-ring electric hob, fridge, microwave, dishwasher, Nespresso coffee machine, kettle, cafetière and toaster; Shower room/utility room: A convenient room, which contains a walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin, fridge and freezer and a washing machine/tumble dryer; There is a hallway in the centre of the ground floor, from which stairs lead up to a first floor landing. The following rooms are on the first floor: Master bedroom: Contains a king size bed, freestanding wardrobe, chest of drawers and luggage rack, wooden chair, wall mirror, small selection of books and a Roberts DAB radio with Bluetooth; Bedroom 2: Also contains a king size bed, chest of drawers, storage chest and wooden clothes rail with two storage drawers, comfy chair, two wall mirrors, small selection of books and a Roberts DAB radio with Bluetooth; Family bathroom: Contains a bath with handheld shower attachment, toilet, wash basin and heated towel rail. The bathroom also has beautiful stone flooring and an original trompe d'oeil mural, which was painted by a friend of the owners. At the rear of the cottage lies an enclosed and secluded garden, a sun trap in which to relax after busy days exploring the Cotswolds. This beautifully presented outside space comprises a paved patio which houses a stylish outdoor table with seating for four, and a charcoal barbecue, and around it there are gravelled areas which are brought to life with colourful flowers, leafy shrubs and a raised pond whose gentle fountain adds to the peaceful atmosphere (there is a safety grill available for the pond). In the spring the stunning wisteria comes into bloom, and within the shed two bean bags can be found, perfect for making the most of the warm summer sunshine. At the front of the cottage there is another delightful garden, complete with bistro table and seating for two. Free on-street parking is available on the quiet road outside the property.

The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh lies on the Fosse Way Roman Road in the northern Cotswolds and boasts many elegant 18th century buildings, which are home to traditional inns, serving real ales and home-cooked food, tea rooms, restaurants and individual shops to suit all tastes. It also boasts it's own train station and lies on the intersection of the Paddington rail line from London. The town hosts the Moreton-In-Marsh Show, one of the UK's largest one-day agricultural shows, as well as the Moreton Beer Festival, an annual French Market, and a large outdoor market every Tuesday. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of the town, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close by. Less than five miles away is Stow-on-the-Wold, the highest town in the Cotswolds. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly farmers' market. Close by is Bourton-on-the-Water, which is known as the Venice of the Cotswolds as the River Windrush runs through the centre. It lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. Also within reach is the spa town of Cheltenham. This town boasts an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, and is famous for its horseracing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. Oxford, Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within driving distance. A convenient base for exploring the Cotswolds and the wider area.

Note: Logs for the woodburning stove are provided between October and April; guests must purchase their own outside of these months. 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: There is a telephone at the property (with a bar on international calls). The phone is for occasional use only and the owners reserve the right to charge for additional phone usage. Note: Guests should be aware that mobile phone reception can be very poor, particularly inside the property. Note: The property’s garden is enclosed, however please note that it contains a raised pond and children and dogs should be supervised in the garden at all times - a safety grill for the pond is available. Note: This is an old property that is laid out over two floors and there is a slight slope from the road to the pavement outside the cottage which can become slippery when wet, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility however there are steps immediately outside the front gate which can be used to get from the pavement to the road.
