The detail

Buried in the beautiful town of Shilton, deep within the Cotswolds, sits The Chestnuts - a stunning cottage where beautifully chic renovation meets quintessential British rurality all under one marvellously eco-friendly roof.

Looking upon the cottage from the outside one is unlikely to predict just quite how stylish the interior of The Chestnuts is, the fact is quickly impressed upon visitors from the moment they enter however. Plenty of space downstairs with a stylish living room which is home to huge French windows that bathe the room in light throughout the day and also a separate dining room also with french doors to the garden. Both these rooms enjoy enough seating for a full complement of guests with the living room including a double sofa bed bringing the total number of guests luxuriously slept at The Chestnuts to ten.

Also on the ground floor is the kitchen, which houses near enough every conceivable modern accoutrement, the chef amongst your group will find themselves very much at home here. With the earliest parts of the cottage dating back as far as the 1850’s The Chestnuts retains some lovely period features. Along with the original wooden beams one of the highlights is a wonderful rounded stone staircase up to the first floor. The winner in the period feature stakes however is the original inglenook fireplace complete with its very own bread oven. Completing the ground floor is a spa style shower room and separate toilet.

Up to the first floor you will find four luxurious double bedrooms that maintain the sleek neutral feel from the floor below. These each contain big sprawling beds that beckon beguilingly after a long days holiday making. Amongst the bedrooming the upper levels of The Chestnuts offer two decadent bathrooms increasing yet further the feeling of luxury emanating throughout the house.

Out into the garden at The Chestnuts and the beautiful views of the adjoining meadow really bring home the English countryside feel. One absolute must whilst visiting is to stay out in the garden past nightfall and bask in the stunning glow of the stars. Shilton offering such a slim amount of light pollution you really are as likely to see a glittering nights’ sky as anywhere in Britain. One weekend in June all the gardens of Shilton are opened up for public appreciation, if you’re lucky enough to be visiting over this week you will get to experience some absolutely stunning idylls that are usually reserved just for their owners.

The village of Shilton first appears in the annals of time back in 1205 and it maintains many of its medieval features. The River Shil runs through the centre, indeed very close to The Chestnuts, and offers a lovely afternoon stroll. Simply put the village of Shilton epitomises the stunning Cotswolds in which it sits, with fabulous dated features (the pub’s been about since the 1600s) blended with beautiful wildlife.

Any visitor to the Cotswolds would be foolish not to sample one of the many markets on offer, the farmers market at Stow on the Wold is a great way to get ones teeth into the local produce. Stroud Farmers Market also teems with fantastic produce locally sourced and delightfully offered. The Cotswold Wildlife Park is only a two and a half mile drive from The Chestnuts and is a fantastic family day out, as is Westwell Manor which boasts staggering gardens well worth a look. Cyclists and walkers will also find the cottage a fabulous base offering delightful trails in every direction.

If an idyllic countryside cottage set in stunning natural surroundings with all the style and sophistication of a renovated property is what you’re looking for, then The Chestnuts is just right for you.
