Great location

Formally a candle making workshop and then the village surgery, Heron Cottage has recently been completely refurbished and extended to create a modern, light and comfortable cottage. Sitting in beautiful countryside and conveniently located between Cheltenham and Cirencester, the cottage is perfect for romantic breaks and those that want to escape from busy city life.

The space
Having been unloved since the doctor moved to a new surgery in the 1950s we have entirely refurbished the cottage and retained many of the original features such as the old beams, the bread oven and an ancient fireplace. We have also added on a modern sitting/dining room complete with a stylish wood burning stove (all wood provided). The old and new sections have a glass link so light floods in and the views down the Churn Valley are magical with sheep grazing and our hens pecking in the fields.

Heron Cottage has two large individually designed double rooms, both with luxury super king-sized beds. The bed in the upstairs bedroom can be converted into two singles upon request. This bedroom has a private bathroom with a rain shower over the bath while the downstairs bedroom has a spacious ensuite shower room. Both bedrooms have free-sat TVs, hairdryers and all linen and towels are from The White Company. We are now pleased to be able to offer 100 Acres Apothecary, beauty products produced locally which have 100% natural ingredients.

As well as a comfortable living area with a Smart TV with Sky and a table seating 6 people, there is a new fully equipped kitchen and a separate WC. The cottage is extremely warm with underfloor heating downstairs and there is Wi-Fi throughout the house.

Large bi-fold doors open onto a terrace which is great for breakfast in the garden or evening barbecues. Guests are welcome to use our tennis court by arrangement. There is a boiler room next door where laundry facilities are available and it is perfect for drying your coats after a damp, muddy walk!

The aim is to provide you with everything that you could possibly want for a break in the Cotswolds.

Where you’ll be

Rendcomb, England, United Kingdom

The village of Rendcomb is 10 miles from Cheltenham so perfect for a weekend's racing or a day perusing the shops. In the other direction is the historic Roman town of Cirencester which has a variety of independent shops as well as most of the well-known supermarkets.
We are in the centre of the Cotswolds and other interesting places to visit such Burford, Bibury, and Tetbury are all not far away. The countryside is stunning and in all directions there are glorious walks, villages and pubs to explore. The village itself has a Post Office and very well stocked shop offering freshly cooked pastries in the morning. There is also a surgery in case of emergencies.

I live in the beautiful Churn Valley with my husband, Rupert. We've been here in the village for 25 years which shows how much we love it! I enjoy spending time in the garden, playing tennis, walking our 2 black labradors to the pub, and having long lunches with friends. I hope you will enjoy your stay at Heron Cottage.
