Local Pub
Stable Cottage is a converted stable block that forms a delightful, single-story holiday home sleeping 4 adults and 2 children, with one en-suite bathroom and one family shower room. Decorated and furnished in a contemporary-country cottage style with accents of greys and bright blues. The cottage has a large gravel courtyard, with parking and outdoor seating for al fresco dining, plus access to the historic, neighbouring Inn at Fossebridge’s 4-acre gardens and pond. Ideally located for visiting Bourton-on-the-Water, Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tetbury and Stow-on-the-Wold.
Full Description

Set back from the main Fosse Way, Stable Cottage is a long, single-story property that has been cleverly converted from the neighbouring Inn’s 17th-century, five-stall stable block, providing a cosy and comfortable, well-equipped bolthole in the heart of the Cotswolds.

The front of Stable Cottage has 11 windows all looking out over a large gravel courtyard with a table, parasol, and seating for six, directly next to the gardens of the Inn at Fossebridge. The gravel courtyard has two gates at either end, one leading to the Inn’s front courtyard and the main road and the other to the neighbouring Lakeside Cottage (a 4-bedroom, sleeps 10+1 holiday let also available through Bolthole Retreats).

Inside, the cottage is conveniently divided into bedrooms at the right-hand end and an open-plan living-dining-kitchen area at the left-hand end, with a family shower room at the centre. The living area has comfy seating, with a large Smart TV (with Netflix, iPlayer capability), a well-equipped kitchenette and a dining area to comfortably seat six guests. The cottage sleeps four adults across one king-size en-suite master bedroom and one twin, and two children in a bunk bedroom off the master bedroom.

Living & Dining Area:
The cottage’s compact but well-equipped living space has a seating area at the far end with a three-seater sofa, occasional tables with reading lamps, a large flat-screen TV, and two armchairs. The dining area comfortably seats six guests around a rectangular, wooden table.

The kitchenette is equipped with everything you need for a self-catering stay, including a dishwasher, oven, and hob, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, and fridge with a freezer compartment.

Family Shower Room:
Conveniently located at the centre of the cottage, for all to access, the shower room features polished limestone tiles, a cubicle-style shower, WC, washbasin with mirror, and heated towel rail.

Bedroom One:
The master bedroom, at the far end of the cottage, is furnished with a king-size bed, bedside tables with reading lamps, a wardrobe with hangers and hairdryer, a long mirror and a luggage stool. A wide window ledge provides plenty of space for personal items. The master bedroom is accessed via bedroom three.

The master bedroom’s en-suite features a full-size bath with a shower over, a double vanity unit that includes two sinks and two mirrors, a WC, and a heated towel rail.

Bedroom Two:
The cottage’s twin bedroom furnished with two single beds, a shared bedside table and reading lamp, and a single wardrobe with hangers. Sunlight streams in through a small window overlooking a garden to the rear of the cottage.

Bedroom Three:
The ‘+2’ bedroom of the cottage is furnished with a bunkbed, with two small single beds (2’6” wide) and a small wardrobe and is intended for children. An ironing board is stored under the bed. A wide window ledge provides plenty of space for personal items. Bedroom one is accessed via bedroom three.


Immediately outside Stable Cottage is a large gravel courtyard where guests can park two cars and relax at a large table, with a parasol and seating for six. A gate leads from the courtyard to the beautiful garden and lake belonging to the neighbouring Inn at Fossebridge, which guests have permission to explore and walk around. The River Coln flows to the side of the Inn, on its journey from Brockhampton to Lechlade, where it joins the River Thames.

The gravel courtyard has two large gates at either end, one leading to the Inn’s front courtyard and the main road (Fosse Way) and the other to the neighbouring Lakeside Cottage (4-bedroom, sleeps 10+1).

Lovely place in a good location to explore surrounding towns. Nice decor and felt very cosy. Reasonably well stocked kitchen. Accurate description of facilities and surrounding area- fossebridge inn was a perfect place to go for dinner, great atmosphere and such friendly and kind staff, their grounds are great for a wander. Main negative is that the main road is noisy (was included in the description already when we booked) and the accommodation is not set very far back from the road.

This apartment is in a convenient location with a nice pub on the doorstep (needs booking for meals). The apartment is lovely- a comfortable, converted stable which has been decorated tastefully. We were able to walk around the gardens of the Inn and easily get to bourton on water, upper/lower slaughter and Roman villa with convenient shops in Cirencester. Lizzie was very happy to help with anything we needed for which we are grateful. And on a cold evening, the mod cons in the flat and a nice big TV make for a cosy night in.

We really enjoyed our stay at Stable Cottage. It was perfectly located for our exploration of the Cotswolds and when we returned back each day it was to a beautifully decorated warm and cosy cottage. We would thoroughly recommend you stay here.
