The Hermitage is a romantic Cotswold stone cottage, located in the large grounds of a beautiful manor house in the picturesque village of Poulton, surrounded by beautiful countryside. Although small, Poulton has a well-regarded pub, a village shop and Post Office, and a nice park close to the cottage. The village is five miles away from the Roman town of Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds, and is also close to many other picture-postcard Cotswold villages, including Bibury, Barnsley and Eastleach, with the stunning Coln Valley just a short drive away. As well as being close to the many beautiful towns and villages of the Cotswolds, Poulton is also well placed for exploring further afield places, such as Oxford, Bath, or even a day-trip into London. This charming cottage was stylishly refurbished by an interior designer in early 2017, adding a lovely contemporary style that enhances the character features, which include stone mullion windows and a beautiful wood burning stove. This character is complemented by the cottage’s modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Smart TV and a well-presented kitchen. The Hermitage sleeps two guests in a king size bed, with a lovely bathroom. There is a beautiful garden at the side of the property, and off street parking is available. This is a perfect option for a couple looking for a relaxing break, in a stylish property. Manor Cottage, a lovely property that sleeps 4+1 in two bedrooms, is next door to The Hermitage, also in the grounds of the manor house. House Rules Security deposits Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions). Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property is two guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than two guests at the property. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant. Pets Regrettably, pets are not accepted. Bed size and configuration King size bed Bathroom Walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin Heating, fuel and logs The property has electric storage heaters. Electricity is included in the rental price. An initial basket of logs is provided for the wood burning stove and further log supplies can be purchased locally, or directly from the owner. Services provided The property has free wireless internet access and a Smart TV, plus a Bluetooth speaker. Mobile phone reception is generally limited inside the property, but is usually better outside. Parking There is a private parking space for one car outside the property. Housekeeping Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services may be available on request. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen) and a high chair are available on request. Initial consumables A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay. Accessibility, health and safety This is an old property and has many character features, including low door frames, a step down into the cottage and a step from the living area into the kitchen, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility. The smoke 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.More

About the neighbourhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
