The cottage is full of traditional character features, including oak beams, flagstone floors, exposed Cotswold stone walls and a lovely wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a well presented kitchen.

Hope Cottage sleeps a maximum of six people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.
As noted above, there is a small pond in the garden and young children should be supervised at all times.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Hope Cottage's garden and front door are accessed by a short right of way through the next door neighbour's garden.

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
