Claypot Cottage is owned and managed by Karen Gerges.
In the heart of the Cotswolds, a rural area renowned for its beauty and sense of village life, stands Claypot Cottage, a lovingly refurbished Grade II Listed self catering holiday property. Benefitting from a large private garden and accommodating six guests in three bedrooms, Claypot Cottage is a truly exquisite place to stay, marrying quintessential Cotswolds charm with high-end contemporary luxury, all just an hour from London by train.
As you step from the award-winning gardens, replete with two sun-trap patios and a wicker outdoor furniture set, you’ll instantly appreciate the care and expertise which went into updating this architectural gem. Internally, the cottage is characterised by a contemporary farm house aesthetic, and the recent renovation has allowed the owners to install a number of twenty first century luxuries, while emphasising the original craftsmanship which this area is celebrated for.
With hardwood floors, exposed timber beams, and whitewashed finishes, the downstairs area feels comfortable but luxurious. Natural light pours into the space through the windows, which also offer generous views of the gardens. The high-spec kitchen has direct access to the garden; ideal for al-fresco dining. Next-door, an expansive living room with ample soft furniture faces a flatscreen television and open fire, with free logs and kindling for the duration of your stay. A shower room is also found on this floor. Upstairs, the master bedroom benefits from a king size bed and private half-bathroom en-suite. The second bedroom contains twin single beds which can easily be converted to a double, with a third bedroom containing a double sofa-bed.
Visitors to the Cotswolds will be enchanted by the strong sense of village life and the emphasis on local skilled artisanship. The region is home to a thriving community of makers and producers, and guests staying at Claypot Cottage can expect a flavour of this in the welcome pack, soaps, and even furniture found in this beautiful house. The majority of the artwork found in the cottage comes from with a ten mile radius, with the complimentary toiletries coming from the local Little Goat Company and the staircase having been designed and built by a local carpenter.
While guests will struggle to tear themselves away from the tranquillity and hygge of the house and gardens, the Cotswolds is well worth exploring. Cirencester, the ‘capital’ of the Cotswolds, is particularly worth a visit for those interested in art, crafts, or local provender, particularly on the market days of Monday and Friday. For a real culinary treat, visit The Village Pub, in nearby Barnesley, or Upton Smokery for a Sunday lunch. If you fancy making use of the high-end kitchen, pop into the Jesse Smith, a butchery-cum-deli packed with excellent local food.
