Jasmine Cottage is a charming, converted barn built in local Cotswold stone and furnished in a country cottage style. It was originally part of the stables to the once adjacent, 18th-century coaching inn called The Crown, and its exposed beams are a reminder of its rich history. The cottage has a reverse-living design with two bedrooms (one ensuite) and a family bathroom on the ground floor, and an open-plan kitchen, living and dining area, with a log burning stove and double sofa bed, on the first floor. There is a private garden, with an outside dining area and shared use of an outdoor swimming pool (open mid May to mid September 10am-2pm - weather dependant), separate children's play area with swings, slide and trampoline. The location is perfect for walkers, cyclists and visitors exploring the wider Cotswolds.

Full Description

Jasmine Cottage is approached along a winding lane surrounded by woodland, which follows the edge of Crickley Hill. Turn off the lane into a green oasis created at the end of the 19th Century by the then owner Sir William Thistleton-Dyer, who was a director of Kew Gardens. Jasmine Cottage is the larger of two semi-detached cottages straight ahead. The sloping land to the side of the cottage has been well looked after for well over a hundred years and was planted with many rare and unusual plants, which the current owners of Crickley Court – Jasmine Cottage’s parent location – continue to maintain with great care.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors. On the ground floor are two bedrooms, one ensuite super-king double and one twin (both rooms can be either super-king or twin on request) and a family bathroom. Head up a wide, carpeted staircase to the light and contemporary, open-plan living-dining area and fully equipped kitchenette. The living area has a comfortable, 4-seater corner sofa, which can be converted into a double sofa bed on request. Guests will find a log burning stove for winter evenings and a Smart TV, DVD player and sound system to relax to after a day out exploring the Cotswolds.

The cottage has its own pretty and private garden with planted borders, and mature trees forming a backdrop. On a patio area, there is a large, six-seater table, chairs, parasol and charcoal BBQ. A separate shared swimming pool (open 10am-2pm), children’s play area, with swings, slide and trampoline (with security net), sits to one side of the garden and is shared with guests at the adjacent Amber Cottage.

A rug is provided over the wood-effect floor to keep toes cosy.

The contemporary kitchenette forms an L-shape, with a double oven and grill, a dishwasher, microwave, washer/dryer down the long side and all the crockery and cooking equipment needed for a self-catering stay. The short side of the ‘L’ forms a breakfast bar, with three bar stools to one side and cupboards and a fridge and freezer to the kitchen side.

The living area is furnished with an L-shaped sofa, that comfortably seats five, an armchair, a coffee table and a reading lamp. A wood-burning stove, with a log basket and fire tools, makes this a super cosy space on winter evenings. For guests’ entertainment, there is 47” Smart TV and DVD player, with plenty of family-friendly DVDs. The whole room is flooded with light from three Velux windows. The sofa can be set up as a comfortable double sofa bed on request.

We loved our stay at Jasmine Cottage. The cottage was very clean and provided all the amenities including baby-related items a high chair, a cot, a stair gate etc. It felt like a home away from home. The kitchen is fully equipped. The owners are very responsive and addressed any questions and requests that we had during our stay. Highly recommend for families with kids or elderly parents.
