The cottage is ideally located for touring the area with Cheltenham, Gloucester and Cirencester nearby. The beautiful Cotswold villages of Chipping Campden, Broadway, Winchcombe, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, BIbury, Burford and Northleach are all close by. The cottage is easily accessed by car from the A40 or A436, which are two of the main roads through the North Cotswolds. Shipton Oliffe is situated 5 miles east of Cheltenham just off the A40. The cottage sleeps up to 6 people in two bedrooms, with a sofa-bed in the sitting room. There is a private patio area with table and 6 chairs and a rear patio overlooking the beautiful Church with a small table and chairs. There is a gas-fired bar-b-que and a fire pit on the patio. There is ample off-road parking, next to the cottage for 2/3 cars. Planning conditions required the cottage to resemble a traditional Cotswold barn externally but internally it is modern and contemporary in every way with full double-glazing throughout and exceptional levels of insulation. The cottage has ultra high-speed broadband and Wi-fi, excellent mobile phone reception with 3 flat-screen TVs (one being a 40” smart TV) with a DVD player and Bluetooth stereo system as well. The cottage is heated by gas-fired central heating, with underfloor heating throughout downstairs and radiators in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The sitting room has an electric, wood-burning stove which creates a lovely ambience without the hassle and aggravation of a traditional wood-burner.
