  The Detail...

A real chocolate-box English country cottage, Asphodel Cottage in Tarlton near Cirencester is the 17th-century destination for a perfect romantic escape. A thatched roof, low-beamed ceilings, open brick fireplace if they gave awards for chocolate box charm, little Asphodel Cottage would win every year.

The cosy lounge is the place to settle on a cold winters evening, with the original inglenook fireplace, big velvet sofas and oriental carpets keeping you snug as you like. The lights are low and the walls lined with intriguing works of art. The TV is upstairs, so this is a room to talk, read and enjoy but you can still use the free Wi-Fi.

More space to lounge around is found in the pretty garden, with a covered seating area featuring comfy rattan sofas lining up alongside Cotswold stone walls. You might like to enjoy your breakfast outside when the weather permits; the garden is secluded, quiet and south-facing, with views down to the Bathurst Estate.

The kitchen has modern appliances but retains the old country charm. Prepare something life-affirming and enjoy it at the farmhouse-style dining table. Vintage china plates, crystal glasses and silver-plate cutlery are all provided to make your meals extra-special.

Youll find a decadent free-standing bath in the wooden-floored bathroom, with views out across the Gloucestershire countryside. Big fluffy towels and complimentary Molton Brown toiletries will make pampering each other even more fun.

The bedroom has an understated chic about it, where a smartly dressed double nestles under the beams. Theres an LCD TV with DVD player and choice of films too.

The ideal base to explore the Cotswolds, Asphodel Cottage is within easy reach of all the main towns and much more in-between. Cirencester and Stroud are 20 minutes drive, and Cheltenham, Gloucester and Burford are around 40 minutes away. With Worcester, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon little more than an hour from the cottage, you can make the most of your days and get to all the areas attractions with no problems.

If you just fancy a carefree wander down the lanes, the nearest pub, The Tunnel House, is only a mile away. For some award-winning country inn dining, its 10 minutes drive to The Bell at Sapperton even more good reasons to get cosy at Asphodel Cottage.

Julie says...
"We can't recommend a stay in beautiful 'Asphodel Cottage' highly enough! Such a gem of a 17th century 'gingerbread' cottage, situated close to the royal town of Tetbury, and Highgrove. The owners have paid such a high attention to detail with a mix of quirky and contemporary decoration, alongside some really beautiful, original art. Tarlton is based in a protected conservation area, and the views across the countryside are breathtaking."

Lola says...
"We enjoyed a fabulous stay in this pretty cottage. Tucked away from it all, and with everything you would need form a rental cottage, it was still only a short distance from everything we wanted to see in the Cotswolds. Evenings holed up in front of the fire (with the complimentary prosecco!) was heaven."
