The Details...

Escape to a Cotswold village in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty at Yew Tree Barn Holiday Cottage. This Grade II listed holiday home sits on a former dairy farm in Upper Slaughter.

The cottage has been lovingly restored to blend the charm of country design with modern touches. Sleeping two guests this is the perfect romantic getaway in one of the most beautiful and desirable areas of the United Kingdom. The interior has been carefully designed to complement the history of the building and its surroundings. Vintage furniture has been handpicked to take pride of place throughout, with the living room having a comfy sofa and armchair in front of the wood burning stove - perfect for those cosy nights in. There is also a flat screen TV, DVD player, and WiFi.

The open plan kitchen comes complete with an electric Aga, Belfast sink, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, washer/dryer, and microwave. There is also a rustic dining table and stairs leading up to the first floor. Here guests will discover the bedroom with vaulted ceilings. This pretty room adds further luxury with a king size bed and built in wardrobes. Also on this level is the bathroom with its double ended, freestanding, claw footed bath, which is the perfect place to relax after a day exploring the surrounding area.

Stepping outside will reveal the courtyard garden. Surrounded by traditional Cotswold stone walls that match the cottage and flowers growing all around, guests can sit back and relax in the wicker chairs over breakfast or perhaps a glass of wine.

Upper Slaughter itself is a charming village that sits on the banks of the River Eye, which leads all the way down to Lower Slaughter around a mile away. The Slaughters are the perfect starting point for a number of walks, finding historic landmarks, amazing gardens, and a number of quirky cafes and shops en route. There are a number of market towns nearby, including Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water, as well as many other charming Cotswold spots. Meanwhile, Stratford-upon-Avon - the home of Shakespeare - and the Roman city of Bath are less than an hour's drive away.
