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.
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.

Really nice accommodation and close to Bath. Really nice place to get away for a few days..and my 1.5 year old absolutely loved the friendly dogs, chickens and lambs!
Gorgeous place to stay in the Cotswolds, and perfect location. 15 minute drive to Cirencester or 10 minute drive to Bourton-on-the-water. They had even decorated for Christmas which we think was a lovely touch. Looking forward to going back in the Summer!
A lovely place to stay, with a pub right next door! Good location as a base to explore the local towns/villages. A great family getaway and the dog loved it too!
This is a great countryside retreat with everything you need. The pub next door is an absolute bonus! If you are staying be sure to go to the Wheatsheaf top food and outdoor garden and the stump an outdoor pub pizza place (stone baked) is lovely too.
"Great place to stay! Right next door to a Hotel/Pub called the Inn at FosseBridge. This was a great base to explore places like Cirencester, Bourton, Broadway and to do plenty of Cotswolds walks and activities. Plenty of space to park and you have your own privacy to come in and out of the Stables without as you please. Thank you
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.
