Sixpenny Cottage is a large, Cotswold stone property, which sits on the gentle slope of a hill, with spectacular views over the Windrush Valley. The cottage is located in the peaceful hamlet of Clapton-on-the-Hill, three miles south of the famous village of Bourton-on-the-Water, with its wide range of pubs, shops and restaurants, and close to many of the other well known Cotswold towns and villages, such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Burford and The Slaughters. There are many beautiful country walks straight from the cottage and the central Cotswolds location makes it ideal for exploring the entire region, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Oxford and Bath. The detached cottage has been beautifully furnished by its owners, with a mix of traditional and contemporary furnishings complementing the traditional character of the property, which includes exposed Cotswold stone walls, oak beams, flagstone flooring and a lovely wood burning stove. The character and style of the cottage is enhanced by modern facilities, including wireless internet access, two Freeview TVs, a DVD player, and a spacious, well presented kitchen. The cottage sleeps a maximum of 10+2 people, in five bedrooms, with the +2 option being a double sofa bed in the ground floor snug. There are four bathrooms, off-street parking for two cars and a peaceful garden, with stunning countryside views. Sixpenny Cottage is an ideal choice for family gatherings, or for groups of friends looking for a luxurious holiday cottage, surrounded by the beautiful Cotswold countryside. House Rules Security deposits A security deposit of £300 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is 10+2 guests (with the +2 option being a sofa bed in the ground floor snug), 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 12 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 up to two additional infants.

This is an extremely well organised place to stay at - there is ample communication in advance, with instructions on how to let yourself in and whom to contact if there are any questions. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped for at least 10 people....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.
