Perks for the Parents

This cosy and chic cottage has everything you need as a jumping off point to explore the Cotswolds. It sleeps 7 + 1. Parents will appreciate the stylish interiors of this residence with all the convenience of modern life mixed with Cotswolds charm. The kids’ room is on the top floor so there’s plenty of peace and quiet when they’re in bed to relax in front of the woodburner in the living room. The kitchen has all modern conveniences and is a pleasant space to dine in or whip up a family feast, plus there is a small garden with outdoor seating for alfresco dining in the summer For those wanting an escape from family life, The Meadow Spa at The Thyme Hotel (under 10 minutes’ drive) offers deep tissue massages, body rituals and a (kid-free) outdoor pool.

Why Kids Love it

Kids will love the bunk room at the top of the house where there are 3 in-built single beds, each with its own reading light and USB outlet. It’s a special space that they’ll enjoy having all to themselves. In the living room is a smart TV that offers all the usual streaming services including Disney+. A crib and highchair are available on request for the smallest of visitors. There are many kid-friendly attractions nearby including the Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens (12-minute drive) where kids can get eye to eye with giraffes, reptiles, penguins and more, or experience thrills in the adventure playground.

About the Location

Lechlade-on-Thames is at the southern edge of the Cotswolds and approximately 2 hours from London by car. There is a grocery store, pharmacy, playground, and coffee shops within a few minutes’ walk of the cottage. Within a short drive are many family-friendly country pubs including the quaint, whitewashed Bell Inn at Langford and The Trout Inn, perched right on the weir pool at St John’s Lock, the first lock on the Thames River.

Accommodation Details

Proceed into the eat-in kitchen and through to a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer, and fridge, and a bathroom with shower and underfloor heating. Upstairs you'll find the first 2 bedrooms, which both have kingsize beds. The front bedroom features an exposed Cotswold stone wall with decorative fireplace, and the back bedroom leads into a private ensuite bathroom with a roll-top cast iron bath with shower and a double vanity.

Style Notes

Country chic. This honey-stoned cottage oozes character with an original medieval fireplace, wall nooks and antique floorboards. Exposed beams and white washed walls sit beautifully alongside modern renovations of the sleek white kitchen with brass handles and the sage green bathroom, complete with Jack and Jill sinks in a vintage sideboard. Little touches like the hand wash and hand cream give it a luxury feel. The living room has a deep sofa and blankets for cuddling up in front of the fire. We love the clawfoot tub in the bathroom for an indulgent soak, the ancient fireplace in the living room, and the wonderfully fun children’s room with beds tucked into the eaves.

Lechlade, The Cotswolds

Graceful swans and gastropubs

On the southern edge of the Cotswolds, 90 minutes from London, Lechlade is a popular town on the Thames with graceful swans, gastropubs and chocolate box-style houses. There are lakes nearby promising Swallows and Amazons-style family adventures on kayaks, row boats and little islands, along with cycling routes.
