Old Fox Cottage is a traditionally thatched Grade II-listed 'chocolate box' cottage perfect for families, or for couples looking for a luxury self-catering weekend break away in the Cotswolds. Guests are welcomed by Old Foxy who proudly keeps watch alongside his waddling of ducks atop the eaves. The charming interiors boast oodles of traditional period features, with quirky splashes of character throughout to create a very special family home indeed.
Old Fox Cottage exudes a whimsical charm all its own, and is perfectly located for exploring the surrounding countryside and charming Cotswolds villages nearby. This luxury self-catering cottage is just a hop, skip and a jump to the renowned olde worlde 13th century village pub (one of the oldest pubs in England and owned by the National Trust) which is the perfect spot for a real ale and a spot of lunch after a countryside walk!
Bedrooms and Bathrooms
The double room with original beamed ceiling has pretty views across the village, a king-size marshmallow bed, and a window seat to sit and ponder a while. The fresh linens and squishy pillows promise an uninterrupted night's sleep. The sweet twin room is ideal for both children and adults. The ground floor bathroom has a delightful claw foot tub and separate shower.
The split-level enclosed bloom-filled patio garden is a perfectly positioned sun-trap and an idyllically private spot for al fresco BBQs and quiet reading time. Perhaps a genteel afternoon tea is more your style; sit and enjoy a slice of homemade cake as you watch the butterflies flutter around the bewitchingly-scented lavender. In the spring the fruit trees in blossom locally are a beautiful sight; go on the 'Blossom Trail' and you'll go through some of the prettiest spring landscapes anywhere.
Enjoy a relaxing breakfast in the conservatory with the weekend papers and a supply of hot fresh coffee, or kick back in the garden with a good book and steal yourself some extra zzzs...Just a short drive away is the Regency town of Cheltenham with its bevy of stylish shops and historic promenade, or explore the surrounding countryside and neighbouring Cotswold villages with their farmers markets, traditional pubs, and friendly locals.
There is parking available in front of the cottage for several cars depending on availability. Additional parking is available in the village square just opposite the cottage.

AROUND THE PROPERTY
Style: Old Foxy has a delightful charm and spirit all its own. The calming hues reflect the relaxing ambiance, whilst quirky interiors such as the wooden beams and crooked walls and ceilings add a dose of sugar and spice.
Chief Operations Officer Kahdine says
The cottage is cute-as-pie, and has a really personal feel with interesting artefacts scattered throughout. I made the most of the nearby town of Cheltenham and relished delving into the boutique shops, I also particularly loved the promenade where I enjoyed a yummy ice cream in the sunshine!
