Full Description
Woodland Cottage is tucked away in a peaceful setting in the village of Temple Guiting. A hidden oasis on the edge of a small woodland, it encloses you in its sanctuary. Walk past the wonderful wildflower garden buzzing with life, the wind rustling in the trees and gentle sounds of birds putting you at ease. Though you may wish to linger in the garden, the beautifully finished interior of Woodland Cottage awaits. The entrance hall has space to hang your coats and leave your bags before racing off to choose your favourite bedroom. There are two king-size rooms, one on the ground floor, and a triple room with three single beds, perfect for children or friends sharing. With three bathrooms you won’t be treading on each other’s toes while getting ready for the day.

The kitchen/diner is open to the sitting room giving this cottage a lovely flow so everybody can be together no matter their activity. The rustic wood dining table seats seven and you can gather in front of the decorative fireplace for evening games. Homely touches of modern country cottage style textiles add character to each room, alongside carefully chosen pieces of furniture.

A break at Woodland Cottage will recharge your batteries. Spend leisurely days in the garden, explore the area on dog walks or head deeper into the Cotswolds to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Perfect property for a wholesome cosy weekend. It was great for hosting a dinner party for family and a few friends who live locally. The property was very clean and comfortable with the comfiest beds!

A really lovely break a superb cottage, well kept and very comfortable. What put this above other cottages we have stayed with is the little extras-cleaning equipment, oil, salt and pepper, spare light bulbs etc. On arrival, there was also bread, milk and eggs which was a lovely touch! Great base to explore the Cotswolds, would recommend the 4 mile circular walk and a visit to Batsford Arboretum.5* highly recommended.

Woodland Cottage has only very recently been refurbished as a holiday cottage. The beds are extremely comfortable with cosy feather and down bedding and the showers are excellent (with deliciously-scented Bramley shower gel, hand wash and shampoo provided). The house is attractively furnished and decorated, all of the new blinds and curtains are lovely. The garden is attractively planted and secure for dogs. The village is very peaceful, with good walks from your doorstep and lovely local pubs in nearby villages.
