"...Close to ridge and furrow rolling down to the River Isbourne... amidst 58 acres of Cotswold farmland."

Set in glorious countryside with outstanding views towards the Cotswold Hills and Vale of Evesham, Cottons Farm enjoys a truly peaceful setting at the end of a long tree-lined drive,
300 metres from the road. It is just a mile from the pretty, unspoilt village of Dumbleton, easily accessible by road or footpath, and 5 miles from Broadway, the ever-popular ‘capital’ of the Cotswolds. The holiday cottages are surrounded by 58 acres of working farmland, with ridge and furrow rolling down to the River Isbourne, which lies 150 metres away from the cottages (toddlers beware!). Visitors are welcome to walk in the fields surrounding the farm and many public footpaths run nearby. Very tastefully converted from 150-year old farm buildings (including cart-shed, stable and dairy), these comfortable cottages are well equipped and furnished to a high standard.

Cool in summer, warm and welcoming in winter, they are all centrally heated and well insulated. Set near the owners’ home, yet retaining complete privacy, each cottage has its own individual character with many original features, and enjoys its own area of garden and patio. A perfect place to relax, they are ideally situated for walking and touring the Cotswolds.
Broadway with its old stone houses and fascinating shops also boasts Broadway Tower, now the centre of a country park and home to an observatory and exhibition. The market town of Evesham (5 miles) has tree-lined streets and pretty walks along the River Avon. Only a few minutes’ drive, on the edge of the Cotswold hills, is Toddington, where visitors can board a train on the Gloucestershire–Warwickshire Great Western Railway (mid March - mid October) and enjoy a ride through picturesque villages.
In nearby Winchcombe there’s Sudeley Castle, while the Cotswolds Farm Park/Adam’s Farm (with its rare breeds of animals) and the bird sanctuary at Bourton-on-the-Water are easily reached, as are Stanway House, Hidcote Garden, Snowshill Manor and Cheltenham. Stratford-upon-Avon and the cathedral city of Worcester are within an hour’s drive. The neighbouring villages boast traditional pubs and many excellent restaurants. Riding, swimming, golf, tennis and fishing are all close by. Shop 1 mile.

Adjoining Elm End, this comfortable single-storey barn conversion has an attractive beamed interior. Cosy sitting/dining room with gas log-effect fire. Well-equipped, farmhouse-style kitchen. Two pretty bedrooms; one double and one twin. Large bathroom with shower cubicle with toilet.
