The property

Will’s Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold stone property which sleeps 4+2 guests, in two bedrooms (with the +2 option being a double sofa bed in the living room), with a contemporary family bathroom. Once the farm’s granary, this charming home away from home features high vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms and boasts exposed wooden beams in every room. These character features have been complemented by modern facilities such as wireless internet access, a Freeview TV with a DVD player, and a well-equipped kitchen. The attractive patio garden offers uninterrupted rural views, and guests are encouraged to explore the grounds the cottage sits within, ranging from farmland to wildflower meadows and woodland. The conservation work carried out on the farm attracts many species of birds, and barn owls can regularly be seen flying around the cottage. There is off-street parking for up to four cars on the driveway. Will’s Cottage is located on a working farm close to picturesque Horsley, a peaceful village on the south-western edge of the Cotswolds. This unspoilt village is home to a number of amenities such as the community shop, village hall, children’s playground and sports field, together with a 15th century parish church and popular country pub, The Hog. Just two miles away is the bustling market town of Nailsworth, known for its high quality restaurants, modern art gallery and independent shops. Horsley is surrounded by breathtaking countryside, with many walks and cycle routes on its doorstep to discover. Kingscote and Horsley Woods, along with nearby Woodchester Park, are Sites of Special Scientific Interest and the latter is owned by the National Trust and includes a play trail, walking trails and a Mansion with its own café. The region offers a range of tourist attractions including Chavenage House, a stately home which features in many period dramas, The Royal Gardens at Highgrove, Westonbirt Arboretum and the Cotswold Country Park and Beach. The village is also well-placed for exploring the many historical towns of the South Cotswolds including Stroud, Cirencester, Painswick, Minchinhampton and Tetbury, and further afield destinations such as Bath, Cheltenham and Oxford are within easy reach for day trips. Will’s Cottage is the perfect country retreat for a gathering of friends or family who are seeking a relaxing break surrounded by the glorious Cotswold scenery.

About the location

HORSLEY

Wylam 2 miles; Heddon-on-the-Wall 3 miles; Corbridge 7 miles; Newcastle upon Tyne 8 miles; Hexham 12 miles.

The parish of Horsley is situated in one of the most scenic parts of east Tynedale, and forms part of a World Heritage Site. The Hadrian’s Wall long distance path is situated one mile north of the village of Horsley and is connected by existing rights of way, one of which travels through Horsley Wood, a woodland dating to the medieval period. Horsley village is steeped in history, and many of the buildings have strong architectural features and are of great historical significance, while Horsley is close to the village of Wylam, the birthplace of George Stephenson, one of the early pioneers of the railway industry. Along the road is Heddon-on-the-Wall which sits on the line of the old Hadrian’s Wall, still visible at the edge of the village, and the lovely town of Corbridge, which has history dating back to Roman times, is also nearby. Just a little further on is the Tyne Valley town of Hexham with its abbey, old gaol and old town centre. The vibrant city of Newcastle upon Tyne with its many pubs, shops, eateries, museums and other attractions is within driving distance and has something for everyone. Horsley is an ideal base for exploring this part of Northumberland.

Note: Due to health and safety reasons, guests are not permitted to walk through the farmyard. Note: The property’s garden is not enclosed, and due to the close proximity of the farm, young children should be supervised outside at all times.
