Great Rissington, Gloucestershire GL54 2LP
Delightful self-catering accommodation for two.
Daisy’s Cottage is in a tranquil and delightful setting in the grounds of Kate and Richard’s home. This old barn has been lovingly and tastefully renovated to provide cosy, self-contained accommodation, offering couples the chance to share this wonderful area while enjoying the privacy of their own luxurious and characterful cottage. The extensive gardens can be used by guests and there is a summer house which is also available for guests to use, along with seating outside the front of the cottage.
Great Rissington is a quintessential Cotswold village, built on the slopes of the Windrush valley with the pub a very short walk from the cottage and it is a perfect base from which to explore all the delights that the Cotswolds can offer and only 3 miles from the popular village of Bourton-on-the-Water. The village has been the home of Kate and Richard Cleverly for over 25 years.
Whilst still retaining the original beams and stonework, Daisy’s Cottage has a light, airy interior; the stable door to the front and French doors to the private patio area at the back allow you to savour the peace of the Cotswold countryside even when indoors.
The wonderfully equipped kitchen at Daisy’s Cottage lacks for nothing. Everything has been considered to make self-catering a joy, including high quality cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery, a washer-drier, electric fan oven and hob, microwave, toaster, fridge with freezer compartment and of course, a dishwasher.
The cosy sitting room has a TV/DVD and a CD/radio for those wishing to listen to music, and an ipod dock. For those more bracing autumnal breaks, the whole cottage benefits from full thermostatically controlled central heating and is wonderfully insulated.
The beamed double bedroom is furnished in antique pine with a comfortable king size bed, and has a window opening onto the patio. There is a hanging cupboard and a chest of drawers for clothes storage. Daisy’s Cottage has a sparkling white bathroom featuring an over-bath shower (also shower attachment) and a pretty window with views over the gardens of Meadow Barn.
