The simple, Nordic-feel kitchen has wonderful white worktops whilst cupboards hold all the equipment you'll need to rustle up feasts for your loved ones including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher and the all-important coffee machine.

We just love the dining table with four chairs, bench and overhanging lighting - it's the perfect spot whether you're enjoying a lazy brunch or Christmas dinner with the family, and the SONOS sound system will help create the perfect atmosphere for you.

In addition, there's a washing machine and tumble dryer in the utility room as well as a sink and an area for coats and shoes.

The house is most comfortable for up to six adults and two children, as there is one en suite shower room plus one family bathroom with rolltop bath and separate shower. There is a cloakroom with WC downstairs.

The en suite master bedroom is very pretty, with an eye-catching floral feature wall, king size Loaf bed, area for hanging clothes, chest of drawers and a Smart TV so you can catch up on your favourites in peace.

Bedroom two has a zip-and-link king size bed, meaning it can either be a 5' king size bed or made into two 2'6" twin beds, perfect for little ones. With a hanging rail for clothes, chest of drawers and a Smart TV, this pretty bedroom benefits from warm, calming tones throughout.

Bedroom three has a lovely wooden king size bed, romantic dark floral feature wall, hanging rail for clothes, bedside tables with drawers and a Smart TV.

All the bedrooms benefit from shuttered windows, gorgeously luxurious Egyptian cotton linen, sumptuous bedding and beautiful cushions and throws. There's also a hairdryer in each room.


The en suite to the master bedroom is a luxurious shower room, whilst the family bathroom has a fabulous roll top bath for long soaks, plus a separate shower and double sink.

Downstairs, even your four-legged friend isn't left out - there's a dog shower too! Just perfect for washing off muddy paws.

There is also a cloakroom with WC.

Outdoor space

There's a bijoux courtyard leading off of the kitchen with built-in bench seating - perfect for morning coffees with the papers or an early evening tipple or two.

In the Area

Located in the eastern part of the Cotswolds, Lower Oddington is a hamlet of golden limestone cottages, one of the more hidden away spots compared to its more well-known neighbours. It's also home to The Fox, a fabulous inn and restaurant that's just a short walk from the retreat. The unmissable Daylesford Farm is within walking distance too through beautiful Cotswolds countryside and is a must-visit for excellent local produce. The chocolate-box pretty villages of Stow-on-the-Wold with its huge market square and great shops is a few minutes' drive away, whilst Bourton-on-the-Water (known as 'the Venice of the Cotswolds') boasts plenty to do such as Birdland Park and Gardens, the fascinating Model Village, Cotswold Motor Museum and Cotswold Perfumery. Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park (of BBC Countryfile fame) is a firm family favourite whilst further afield you'll find the Cotswold Wildlife Park and gardens and the pretty villages of Burford and Moreton-in-Marsh. Larger places such as the gorgeous Roman town of Cirencester and Regency Cheltenham Spa are well worth exploring. Other places of note include the impressive Snowshill Manor, Sudeley Castle, Broadway Tower, Blenheim Palace, Chedworth Roman Villa, Chastleton House and The Rollright Stones.

Exquisitely charming, our golden-hued Cotswold home is perfect for family gatherings with simple yet luxurious interiors, surrounded by wonderful countryside...

Very comfortable, stylish and fabulous location Loved the doggie shower!

Gorgeous cottage, very comfortable and beautiful throughout, lovely location and the wood burner was a bonus. The arrival hamper was a lovely unexpected surprise

We had a fabulous stay at Earby House, it was so much bigger than we anticipated and a fantastic location. The Fox pub - a 2 minute walk away was great, lovely food and excellent service within a really nice modern rustic interior. A great long weekend for us - location is ideal for walking and touring the beautiful Cotswolds.

Earby house is a beautiful perfectly located cottage. I stayed there with my family and my two young children absolutely adored our stay. We stayed three weeks and could’ve stayed longer.

Fantastic house and great location.

It was excellent and we would like to stay again next year

A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. I would highly recommend this property for your special break away.

This cottage is so comfortable and cosy, loved the big bathroom. With two little ones it was absolutely ideal, with stair gates and cots being available

Earby House is the perfect Cotswold escape in an idyllic location. The house is beautifully furnished and has ample room for relaxing and entertaining. Boutique retreats made the trip very special and arranged balloons and a gift for my birthday. We will definitely be rebooking!

Earby House is beautifully decorated and maintained, and it's a great layout for two families! We absolutely loved the location––for the local walks, the ease of nearby Daylesford and Stow, and the friendly vibe.

A wonderful cottage to stay in. Superb environment, and everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. We'll be back for sure.

A very comfortable, spacious and stylish retreat.

The cottage was lovely and well equipped. Location ideal for exploring the Cotswolds .

Lovely location , well equipped property and we had a great holiday, thank you

Beautiful cottage in a lovely quiet village
