Delightful 1670’s renovated cottage in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds - seriously sleek design with eco credentials too.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
Culls Cottage is absolute proof that a self-catering break with superb environmental credentials can also score top marks for style and luxury too. This traditional but stunningly renovated cottage dates back as far as 1670 and resides in the village of Southrop in the Cotswolds.
The renovation of Culls Cottage has in no way striped the place of its old charm, with many original features remaining, the undoubted highlight of which being the original fireplace in the sitting room which exudes warmth and stature. The remainder of the sitting room complements the old fireplace nicely with enough sofa space for a full complement of guests to relax after a full days’ holiday making. Also situated on the ground is the kitchen housing every modern convenience a holidaying chef could ask for and the dining room which offers the perfect arena to enjoy the fruits of any kitchen labour undertaken.
As a property swimming in eco credentials Culls Cottage holds a gold award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme and is entirely carbon neutral. Don’t let this conjure images of dated frugality however as the cottage is home to two large plasma TV’s and WiFi throughout
Upstairs at Culls Cottage are three lovely double bedrooms all playing host to fabulously comfortable beds, ideal for a weekend spot of breakfast in bed. The double sofa bed in the sitting room completes the sleeping arrangements if that could come in useful for you.
The garden is one of the most exciting features of Culls with guests implored to utilise the full quarter acre they have to themselves. Whilst beautiful during the day, it really comes into its own at night when the lack of local light pollution transform the garden into the perfect star gazing stage.
The village of Southrop, in which Culls Cottage sits, is one of the few remaining unspoilt villages of the Cotswolds and certainly worth a stroll around. Listed buildings abound, none more so than the church, which having been dedicated to St Peter when built in 1100 displays absolutely stunning masonry. The village is also home to The Swan pub, a real foodie haven and a staple of any Culls Cottage to do list. They are a popular bunch down at The Swan though so if dinner is what you're after booking is recommended. The River Leach that skirts around the village is also certainly worth meandering down on a quiet afternoon. If your party like to explore the great outdoors on foot or by bicycle then Culls would be a fantastic base, with a huge array of stunning walks and cycles to be had around the Cotswolds. If visiting as a family the Cotswold Wildlife park makes for a great family day out.
Sitting in one of the UK’s areas of outstanding natural beauty Culls Cottage manages to combine eco kind heartedness with holiday luxury effortlessly making it a fantastically feel good British holiday.
