The cottage sits in a quiet Gloucestershire lane surrounded by beautiful countryside on all sides. With a private drive and garden, this cosy 1800's cottage has many original old features combined with all the modern amenities you could need. It's a wonderful place to relax while cut off from the hustle of busy life. A short car journey from the historical cities of Cheltenham and Gloucester, the cottage has many local rural delights right on the doorstep.

The space
Located near the end of a very quiet country lane, ‘Blenheim Cottage’ is a wonderful rural retreat. Ideal as an alternative to long distance holidays after government restrictions have lifted to enjoy some finer family time together. The cottage has old and quirky features with parts of it dating to the early 1800's. We have extended it over the years to suit modern living while keeping all the great old features. An oak ships keel supports the older part of the cottage and a log burner and cosy furnishings make it a relaxing home from home. A twisty staircase leads to the three upstairs bedrooms, 1 en suite and a main bathroom. Reliable superfast fibre broadband connects this old cottage to a modern world. The cottage is ideal for working from home and entertainment.

The garden is enclosed by fencing to try and keep the rabbits out and the children in. The patio area is surrounded by fields stretching out to the back and one side of the property. Wildlife is all around. A net covered fish pond house our only pets but squirrels, pheasants, the neighbours chickens and a huge assortment of birds freely visit from the surrounding countryside. Please take care around the pond and we recommend all children are supervised at all times in the garden.

There is parking for three cars only on the drive. 2 further car parking spaces are available on the neighbours property but are at the owners discretion at the time of your stay so cannot be guaranteed and will be at a cost of £10 per car per night. There is no further parking anywhere down the lane.

Hartpury Equestrian College is a 5 minute footpath walk across a couple of fields, their horses are often in the fields to the front of the property. Our neighbours are very important to us so we ask that you stick to all the designated footpaths and respect their distance especially as we continue to grapple with the virus.

The world famous Cheltenham Race course is a 20 minute car journey so ideally located to appeal to race goers enjoying a week away at the races.

There are many places to visit, from the cities and the River Severn and its tributaries, to fantastic walks and cycling on the doorstep.

After a day trip and exploring, the cosy armchairs and fires make the cottage a wonderful place to return home to, curl up and relax.

The wonderful walks from the house can vary in length, from short hill walks, to longer walks to the River Severn, to visit the pub on the river. 'May Hill' and the town of Malvern can be seen from the hill behind the cottage. They offer fantastic views when the weather is clear and day trips out with the family.

I have a wonderful young family who keep me very busy. When not busy doing all the things families do I enjoy walking, cycling and motorsports. We especially love Gloucestershire and the Forest of Dean and hope to welcome our guests to our beautiful old cottage and so they can share in the relaxing and cosy feel when they stay
