Live in the Cotswolds like a local. Upper Slaughter is a beautiful location with stone cottages. It is very peaceful and great for walks and enjoying the scenery. You need a car as the nearest town with shops is 5-10 minutes drive.
The cottage is gorgeous in every way. The best word to describe it, is idyllic. The owner had thought of everything to make our stay amazing, even down to some groceries in the fridge and games in the cupboard for our boys. Upper Slaughter is a quiet village, just perfect for exploring the nearby towns. We loved walking Wardens way to Lower Slaughter. Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water were our favorites.
We had a superb stay in this gorgeous cottage, planned as a surprise trip for my husband's birthday. Like the Tardis, it seems much bigger on the inside and we had plenty of room to relax in. The groceries awaiting us on our arrival were most welcome. The village is beautiful and we could easily access walks from the doorstep. Highly recommended all round.
We loved this cottage ideally located for all the most beautiful Cotswold villages. Booking was easy and the owners left us a wonderful welcome pack of groceries which we hadnt anticipated . You wont need to take anything for the arrival day! We loved the wood burner which quickly warmed the cosy lounge and there were radiators in all rooms . The bedrooms were at times chilly for the older members of our group (though the younger visitors were fine), but the beds were so comfy and the bedding so heavy and warm that all warmed up. It was really handy having the downstairs double room for elderly parents. Our American neice loved the house- 'so cute' !
The area is simply stunning with plenty of places to visit and an abundance of eateries in easy distance . We would have loved to be able to walk more- the Wardens Way route, passing through the village and on to the splendid Bourton on the Water, was an easy hours stroll and in the opposite direction extended much further.
We only wish we could have stayed longer.
One of the nicest holiday lets we've stayed in - bigger than it looks in the pictures and well-equipped. Great base for exploring the Cotswolds. Beautiful quiet village. Would definitely recommend this place - we really enjoyed it.
