Crafty Fox Cottage is a stylish, Cotswold stone cottage, located on a peaceful country lane in the hamlet of Foxcote, surrounded by beautiful rolling countryside. There are many scenic walks easily accessible from the cottage, including the well known Gloucestershire Way, and a traditional local pub is within walking distance. The nearby village of Andoversford contains another lovely pub, as well as a village store and a Post Office. Despite the cottage’s stunning rural location, it is only five miles away from Cheltenham, with its wide range of shopping and dining options, and lively calendar of events, including the famous horse racing festival every March. The famous market town of Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as the “Venice of the Cotswolds”, is also only 9 miles away, and the many charming villages and towns of the Cotswolds can be easily explored from Crafty Fox Cottage. Recently refurbished by its owners to a high standard, the cottage combines a lovely, contemporary style with character features, which include exposed beams in many rooms, tiled floors, and a large inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove. The traditional character of the cottage has been complemented by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV, and an electric Aga in the spacious, well presented kitchen. Crafty Fox Cottage sleeps four people, in two bedrooms, with one bathroom. There is a well-established garden at the rear of the cottage, which backs onto open countryside. The cottage is perfect for a family, or friends, seeking an idyllic rural retreat in the heart of the Cotswold countryside, whilst still being close to the beautiful spa town of Cheltenham. House Rules Security deposits Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions). Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property is four guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than four guests at the property. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant. Pets Regrettably, pets are not accepted. Bed linen and towels Bed linen and towels are provided for guests. Arrival and departure times Arrival time is after 3pm and departure time is by 10am. Access is via a key safe, therefore it does not matter if you are arriving late at night.

Electricity and oil are included in the rental price. An initial basket of logs is provided for the wood burning stove and further log supplies can be purchased locally.

Mobile phone reception is generally OK. Parking The property has a driveway with parking space for two cars. Housekeeping Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services may be available on request. Child friendly facilities A travel cot (without linen), high chair and stair gate are provided. Young children should be supervised at all times in the garden, as there is a drop between the lawn and the patio area. Initial consumables A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay. Accessibility, health and safety This is an old property with character features, including steep stairs and low doorways, which is laid out over two floors, and could therefore 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. The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.More

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.
