About The Experience

Ah, the English countryside. So many wonderful words have been used to describe the atmosphere projected by this lovely landscape: peaceful, bucolic, pastoral... This English cottage in Windrush puts you within reach of it all. Bordering National Trust land where you can ramble to your hearts' content, this cottage for rent in England is also be within easy driving distance of Oxford and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Location Description

The village of Windrush, where this cottage is located, sits 7 km west of Burford, with easy access to the A40. The famous Fox Inn is 1.5 km down a winding country road; the nearest shop is 3 km in the opposite direction. For aviation enthusiasts, Windrush is also the location of an abandoned WWII airfield. The village itself is located mid-way between Gloucester and Oxford, both easily reachable from the A40. Stratford-Upon-Avon, birth and burial place of William Shakespeare, is just to the north.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed Most:
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived and found a welcome basket with fruit, cookies, cereal, and bread, and eggs, cheese, and milk in the refrigerator. This was a very thoughtful gesture that we greatly appreciated. We enjoyed coming home to our cottage after a day of sightseeing and being able to cook dinner and watch a movie, read a book, or play a game together. The cottage had a wonderful selection of entertainment! The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was fully equipped.
Enjoyed Least:
We didn't realize that the "bathroom" did not have a stand up shower - just a bathtub with a handheld shower. Also, the telephone was coin-operated and only worked for calls within England; no international calls.
Surrounding Area:
We absolutely loved driving to our property and seeing the fields of yellow flowers and the adorable sheep and baby lambs grazing in the green grass. The area was very peaceful and quiet and we enjoyed waking up to the sounds of birds singing. Our favorite nearby town was Bourton-on-the-Water, absolutely delightful!
Nearby Events or Locales:
The cottage is located in the town of Windrush, which consists of only a church and houses. Burford was the nearest larger town with shops, but it was not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
A mobile phone would be helpful.
Directions:
We did not have any trouble finding the property.
Check In Out:
We were supposed to call our keyholder prior to our arrival but we did not have a mobile phone. However the next door neighbor was home and generously called the keyholder when we arrived. She told us where to find the key and everything was fine. The keyholder did not meet us at the time of check-out either, so we left the key where we found it. Everything was fine though.
