Holiday Rental House /
4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7
The cottage is built of Cotwold stone in the local style of architecture, with gables and dormers. Decorated in very traditional style, it has a wood burning fire, Rayburn (Aga) cooker, and large garden. Yet renovated to include power showers, the latest central heating and other comforts. NOW UPGRADED TO 4* GOLD by the English Tourist Board.. The cottage has also been certified as suitable for families and cyclist holidays,

The village, Great Rissington, is at the centre of many scenic walks. Guide books are in the cottage. It's a great place to laze about in, a haven of tranquility, or as a touring base right in the middle of the Cotswolds, and then relax in the village pub in the evenings!

Management response:

It's the blend of peace and quiet in the village, but a lot of stuff nearby that makes it special for us. more

Fantastic and spacious cottage with four cosy bedrooms and wood burner in the lounge. Located in a quaint village with excellent local pub and access to nearby villages and walks in surrounding countryside. I would definitely recommend Easterleigh Cottage for a relaxing break away. more

Management response:

We spend an awful lot of time trying to find the "ideal" village, glad you thought so too. more

The cottage is lovely. It has everything you could need and everything is finished to a very high standard. Three showers avoid any morning rush and the kitchen, dining room and lounge and great spaces. There's also just about parking for two cars on the drive and there's always space on the (very quiet) road. The village is beautiful and... more

Management response:

As it's our own holiday home we equip it to a higher standard than the average self-catering place! more
