The Old Swan

Set in the picturesque Cotswold village of Sherston, close to the pretty towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury, is this charm-filled, Grade II* listed former coaching inn, resting peacefully on the highly sought after main street. Boasting much character and period details, this spacious property is perfect for families or groups of friends looking to explore the delightful Cotswolds and surrounding areas. Spread over three floors, the interior is thoughtfully decorated to contrast with the style of the property, from the mullion windows, high vaulted ceilings and exposed country beams, to the quirky household accessories and bright and cheerful colour schemes. The shades of white cast over the rooms upstairs add a sleek, quality finish to the property. The blue sitting room showcases a luxurious sofa and elegant seating arrangement, focusing on the charming woodburner in the inglenook of the room. The quiet cottage comfortably sleeps 8 people spread throughout 4 bedrooms. On the first floor there are 2 bedrooms, both of which have en-suite bathrooms. The spacious master bedroom has a luxurious super king bed and the second bedroom has the option of 2 single beds or a super king size bed. The top floor has a further 2 bedrooms, sharing 1 large bathroom. Again, one of the top floor bedrooms has a super king size bed and the other has the option of 2 singles or 1 super king size bed. Concluding the interior in a fashionable manner is the large farmhouse kitchen and breakfast table; combined with contemporary fixtures, white units and modern artwork; the room entices you with a homely feel. Step out into the west-facing courtyard garden, enclosed by a stone wall, it is beautifully presented with a flourish of wild plants. The Cotswolds offers a glorious landscape of unspoilt villages, well-tended woodlands and houses that look as though they're made of creamy fudge. The area is particularly popular with walkers and cyclists and equestrians.

Yet again last year the village of Sherston came in the top 10 most desirable places to live in Britain. The village boasts a fantastically well stocked village shop, 2 pubs, 2 wine shops and a number of other small businesses including the Angel Hotel and Café (which serves delicious breakfasts and coffee). Discover the local area and nearby towns of Tetbury and Malmesbury, as well as the larger cities of Bath and Bristol, which are less than a 30 minute drive from the village. There are several important country houses close by including Badminton, Highgrove and Cirencester Park. The Westonbirt Arboretum is also a particular highlight. The Old Swan is a delightful cottage to base your relaxing break in the south-west of England.
