The village of Lower Slaughter is often the top destination recommended by tour guides when directing visitors to the Cotswolds. This quintessential English village is featured on travel documentaries, magazine covers and post cards around the world and has garnered numerous awards, including 'Most Beautiful Village in England,' 'Most Beautiful Village in the Cotswolds', 'Most Picturesque Towns & Villages in Gloucestershire' and 'Most Romantic Street in Britain.' River Cottage is the largest home at the center of the village in 'the Square' on the banks of the River Eye. This beautiful home is unmatched in terms of it's stunning, picturesque riverside setting as well as the huge variety of nearby amenities & activities, many within walking distance or a 2 to 10 minute drive.

This quintessential English village is featured on travel documentaries, magazine covers and post cards around the world and has garnered numerous awards, including 'Most Beautiful Village in England,' 'Most Beautiful Village in the Cotswolds', 'Most Picturesque Towns & Villages in Gloucestershire' and 'Most Romantic Street in Britain.' River Cottage is the largest home at the center of the village in 'the Square' on the banks of the River Eye. This beautiful home is unmatched in terms of it's stunning, picturesque riverside setting as well as the huge variety of nearby amenities & activities, many within walking distance or a 2 to 10 minute drive. Don't be fooled by many other Cotswold listings - set in rural isolation, where you are forced to drive 10 minutes to reach a ship or pub. In contract, from River Cottage you can stroll outside your front door past the ducks and swans on the river and host a children's paper boat race. Then at break time, 100 yards away you can visit the Old Mill for a cup of tea and scones, and maybe an ice cream cone for the paper boat race contestants. You can wander by the stables for a horse ride or take a 15 minute walk through the flower filled meadows, past the small island with the swans next through the field with grazing sheep to the sister village of Upper Slaughter. There you will pass the award winning 'Lords of the Manor' restaurant. Or walk along the river in the other direction & in to Bourton-on-the-Water. The historic 14th century market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is a 5 minute drive, while Blenheim Palace, Sudeley Castle & Stratford-upon-Avon (Shakespeare's birthplace) are a short drive away. There are numerous dining options for coffee, lunch, or dinner, many within walking distance. The grand 'Slaughters Manor House' is a 5 minute walk and 'The Slaughters Country Inn' pub and restaurant is a 2 minute walk across the bridge over the River Eye. A variety of other lovely gastro pubs are a short drive away. The house has been fully refurbished from 2013-17, has cable TV, high speed internet & Sonos sound system. As owners we have an outstanding reputation with our various properties listed.More
