Staying in the cottages gives you a glorious Cotswold village experience, with beautiful walks on your doorstep, along with fishing, shooting or horse riding by special arrangement.

The River Leach runs through this angelic Cotswold village. With its crystal clear waters, wild brown trout and stunning water meadows, the river offers the chance to see swans, kingfishers or maybe the occasional water vole.
