Set amongst the beautiful countryside of the Cotswolds, this is a delightful dog friendly retreat away from it all, less than three hours from London. Sleeping four lucky people, step inside Shepherd's Cottage and you'll find exquisite interiors and a warm welcome ensconced in butter-coloured Cotswold stone and a secret, rose-scented garden for outside lounging. With flexible sleeping arrangements, this is a perfect getaway whether you're a family, friends or a couple seeking a little more space, and with baby equipment available and a dog welcomed, no one is left out! Set moments away from an excellent pub and just a mile from the pretty market town of Chipping Campden, this is wonderfully located to explore the best of the Cotswolds, whether its exploring National Trust treasures such as Hidcote Manor, woodland walks at Batsford Arboretum or discovering pretty towns and villages such as Moreton-in-Marsh, Broadway and Bourton-on-the-Water.


Living

The beautiful sitting room is the perfect space to retire to at the end of a day's exploring, with stunning oak floorboards, large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, sumptuous sofa and two armchairs. During winter months, curl up in front of the flickering fire, whilst in warmer weather open the French doors that lead out onto the Cotswolds stone patio and secluded garden. For entertainment, there's a Smart TV with Amazon Prime and Netflix, whilst a smart speaker is available to play your favourite tunes and create a playlist to your holiday.


Eating

Cooking is a dream in the wonderful country kitchen, with pristine white quartz worktops, Belfast sink, and dove grey cupboards housing everything you could possibly need to rustle up meals. With a stunning Everhot electric range oven, there's also a dishwasher, fridge and freezer so you're all set. In addition, there's a beautiful stone floor and lovely beamed ceiling.

For dining, the farmhouse kitchen table easily seats four people.


Sleeping

Take the gorgeous oak staircase up to a galleried landing where you'll discover two delightful bedrooms to choose from.

The king size bedroom has a gorgeous vaulted and beamed ceiling, making the room oh-so light and airy, whilst the mullion window is simply stunning. The second bedroom has a delightful super king-sized zip and link bed meaning it can also be made into twin beds for flexible sleeping arrangements as well as a vaulted ceiling and a super pretty window seat.

Both beds come swathed in 500 thread count luxurious cotton bedding, cloud-soft anti-allergy duvets and pillows and sumptuous cushions and throws to ensure a blissful nights' sleep.


Bathing

There's a delightful beamed and vaulted shower room with walk in shower and a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy.


Outdoor space

Step through the French doors in the sitting room out to the garden, where you'll discover a gorgeously serene and secluded sunny terraced garden with box hedging, brick pathways and beautiful roses, surrounded by Cotswold stone walls - the perfect spot to relax and get away from it all! There are two lovely spaces for dining, a very comfortable sofa area for early morning coffee and breakfast al-fresco, or sundowners at the end of a busy day out exploring. As well as teak garden furniture for more formal dining.

In the Area

Perfectly positioned to make the most of the Cotswolds, there's plenty to see and do should you be able to tear yourself away from the comfort of Shepherd's Cottage. Just a few steps from the cottage is The Bakers Arms, a fabulous pub with a great garden for summer drinks. Further away you'll discover an array of independent shops, deli's, restaurants, and pubs in Chipping Campden, just one mile from the cottage.

Of course, being in the Cotswolds there are lots of lovely walks on your doorstep (including the Cotswold Way and Dover's Hill), so make sure to pack your walking boots, whilst there are a host of places to visit too, from beautiful Hidcote Manor, the arts and crafts garden located at Chipping Campden, fascinating Snowshill Manor, verdant Batsford Arboretum and of course Daylesford Organic Farm with its restaurant, shop, spa, cookery school and annual events.

If you have little ones with you, make sure to visit the Cotswold Farm Park, whilst Broadway Tower offers majestic views over the countryside. If time allows a visit to Sudeley Castle in Winchcombe, home to the last wife of Henry VIII, is a must.

See above. A thoroughly exceptional experience for us...we'll be back!

A truly wonderful place to stay and relax in superb surroundings.

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

Shepherd's Cottage is a lovely retreat, perfectly placed for a peaceful break. Chipping Campden is an easy walk away, so you can park the car and forget it!

What a fabulous place, so cosy, lovely interior and location and perfectly equipped with quality kitchen equipment! We had a fantastic week here and we stay in the Cotswolds regularly, this was our favourite place by far! The owner is super helpful if needed… we had a small malfunction of the coffee machine and they couldn’t have been more helpful and apologetic. Thank you we will be back!

The Kitchen was beautifully equipped, I cooked a few times and there was everything I needed. The Everhot was simple to use too. Walking into Chipping Campden either across the fields or by road was great and having a good drinking pub close by at the end of the day after touring the beautiful Cotswolds was a bonus. Great dog friendly cottage, our pup loved the big warm radiator in the lounge!

This is a beautiful house and location. The owners have done a fantastic job. We will definitely stay again as was perfectly tucked away but walking distance to everything. Loved it.

Delightful bijou country cottage, simply and tastefully decorated. Cottage was spotlessly clean, well equipped and incredibly comfortable. Lovely welcome basket on arrival. We felt quite at home! Perfect for a quiet get away. I would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.

Truly beautiful cottage in a perfect location for a relaxing weekend away from it all.

I don't want to say too much as this place will get so booked up!! It's just as the pictures and in a beautiful and peaceful location. Perfect size for a small family like ours. The welcome hamper was a lovely surprise, with tasty fresh treats. Everything was so clean and set up ready for us to enjoy our stay. It is tucked away and parking is a very short work away. The outside space is lovely too.
