Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than 8 guests at the property.

We do not recommend this bedroom for young children, due to the absence of spindles between the hand rail and the stairs up to this room.

A stair gate which fits at the top of the stairs is also provided. Accessibility, health and safety Bridge Hill Cottage is an old property, located on a hill, which has many character features, including low beams and two sets of stairs, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to exit the house quickly in the event of an emergency.

Absolutely great cottage. Was a bit tricky to find and I can see that car parking might be tricky at times. If arriving after dark you will need a torch to see the dials on the key box. But one we got inside the place...More

We loved the charm of Bridge Hill cottage! The kitchen was modern, yet the cottage still had the character from when it was built! So much thought went into the decor, and we immediately fell right in with the village, having everything at our fingertips.

About the neighbourhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
