Stable Cottage is a converted stable block that forms a delightful, single-story holiday home sleeping up to four adults and two children, with one ensuite 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 gravel courtyard, with parking and outdoor seating for al fresco dining, plus access to the garden of the historic Inn at Fossebridge, and a privately-owned lake. Ideally located for Cirencester, Bourton-on-the-Water, Tetbury, Burford and nearby Cripps Barn wedding venue.
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, holiday home).

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 flat screen TV, a well-equipped kitchenette and a dining area to comfortably seat six guests. The cottage sleeps four adults across one king-size ensuite master bedroom and one twin, and two children in a bunkbed room off the master bedroom.

Living-Dining Area-Kitchen:
The cottage’s compact but well-equipped living space has a seating area at the far end with two sofas, occasional tables with reading lamps, a large Flatscreen TV and an armchair. The dining area comfortably seats six guests around a rectangular, wooden table and sits next to the kitchenette, which is equipped with everything you need for a self-catering stay, including a dishwasher, oven and hob, microwave, 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 a 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, a long mirror and a luggage stool. A wide window ledge provides plenty of space for personal items.

En-suite Bathroom:
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 compact twin bedroom is 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. (Note: guests sleeping in Bedroom One must pass through this bedroom.)


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 lovely garden belonging to the neighbouring Inn at Fossebridge, which guests have permission to explore, walk in and enjoy a drink and meal at from the Inn. The River Coln flows to the side of the pub, 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. There is parking for 2 cars on the gravel courtyard immediately outside the property.

Lovely little spot for exploring The Cotswolds. The cottage is very stylish and comfortable. Having the pub on the doorstep is also very convenient.

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.

The hamlet of Fossebridge, with its own pub (the Inn at Fossebridge), is on the Fosse Way (the A429), an impressive Roman road that runs in and out of a steep wooded valley and over the River Coln. It is surrounded by some of the most beautiful, rolling countryside that the Cotswolds has to offer, with walks up the Coln Valley to the Roman Villa at Chedworth and downstream towards beautiful Bibury and the famous Arlington Row.
