Holiday cottages near a train station
If you don’t own a car, or don’t want the hassle of driving through the traffic to get to the Cotswolds, don’t despair you can come to visit too… by train.
Imagine it’s Friday evening and you’re heading off for a weekend in the Cotswolds, or perhaps it’s the last day of term and the start of the school holidays. Ahead lies unknown traffic jams and delays… but not for you because you’re heading to the Cotswolds by train, flying past the queues and stroppy drivers with a G&T in hand and a smile on your face as you relax into the beginning of your break.
But wait, perhaps you’re picturing a cottage close enough to a train line to rattle the windows? Well, think again. Our cottages near a train station are as beautiful and quiet as those that are miles away. They just have the added convenience of being in walking distance of a local train station, but not so local that there aren’t many train services to choose from!
And if you’re worried that you won’t be able to bring the food you need for your stay, worry not. All our cottages near a train station will accept deliveries from the major supermarkets – just make sure you book a delivery time when you’re at the cottage.
