Full of historic charm this is a perfect base for a Cirencester stay. Located in a quiet spot in the heart of Cirencester, just moments away from the historic Market Place.

An atmospheric living area has a soft velvet sofa, antiques and original art beneath ancient beams. For cold nights there is a log stove. On sunny days relax in your own private courtyard.

The space
The owners, an art advisor and interior designer, have taken great care in creating a unique interior of great style in a restoration of the highest quality. Original features have been retained with beamed ceilings, exposed Cotswold stone walls and old fireplaces.

The idyllic bedroom has a 19th century brass bed with a romantically themed painted headboard and footboard. There is a ultra comfortable Caspar mattress with crisp white Soak and Sleep linen.

Gold anglepoise lamps sit on antique 'Arts & Crafts' side tables. Overhead a vintage French crystal chandelier illuminates the 17th century beams and a cotswold stone wall.

The second bedroom has a John Lewis bed and luxury Eve mattress.

In the lounge there is a velvet sofa, antique Persian rug, 18th century dining table and chairs, interesting antiques, fine art and classic books. Lighting is discrete whilst a log stove provides a delightful atmosphere. The lounge windows overlook Cricklade Street and there is occasional modest street noise.

The kitchen is all new, fully fitted and has all usual facilities plus extras like a Nespresso machine and frother, Nutribullet, dishwasher and washer/dryer.

The bathroom features a full bath, stand-up shower with glass screen, loads of hot water, deep-pile towels and quality toiletries from Cole & Lewis White Collection.

The latest Sony LED TV, with freeview is located in the living room together with a bluray DVD player and lots of varied films. There is unlimited free wi-fi. For music there is a full choice with digital Roberts radio, bluetooth stereo speakers, CD player and a CD collection

For storage the main bedroom has wall hooks and some drawers. The 2nd bedroom has a small wardrobe. When one bedroom only is booked for a 2 person stay guests have access to the 2nd bedroom for storage but we ask that the bed is not used in any way.

The nearest parking is available at The Old Brewery Car Park about 3 minutes walk away. This is free of charge 3pm to 8am and until 10am on Sundays (cost ave appx £1 per hr 8-3). A large private courtyard garden is available for the sole use of Cotswold Place.

For free parking there are some residential areas outward from the centre farther along Cricklade St/Watermoor Road. At weekends there is some free council owned parking with over 200 spaces available just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Cirencester on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays at the council offices, Trinity Road, GL71PX and the Tetbury Road offices of St James's Place, GL7 1FP.
Access is by key safe. We do not usually meet our guests.

The apartment is located on a quiet road within a minutes walk of the very heart of historic Cirencester and all of its varied shopping and dining facilities.

Close to town, country pub dining is available at The Bell at Sapperton, Wild Duck, Trouble House Inn, Potting Shed and Village Pub Barnsley, all within 10 mins drive. For fine dining try Barnsley House, Calcot Manor or The Rectory.

Within half an hour are the widely varied attractions of the entire Cotswold region. The cities of Bath, Bristol & Cheltenham are all within one hours drive.

A car is not necessary if you are just enjoying the town, but is recommended to explore more of the Cotswold region. There is a direct London rail service three miles away served by a taxi service.

Babes in arms and small well behaved pets possible upon request. There is a pet charge of £30 per pet per stay, payable upon confirmation and subject to acceptance. No child facilities of any sort are provided.

Guest access
Guests have private and sole access to the whole of the property and courtyard garden.

Location

Gloucestershire, England, United Kingdom

Cirencester – or for locals simply Ciren - lies on the River Churn, a tributary of the Thames, and is the largest town in Cotswolds.

In Roman times, there was a thriving wool industry, and roman ruins can still be visited. When a wall was erected in the 2nd century Corinium was, in area, the second-largest city in Britain. A great abbey church was dedicated in 1176 but in the dissolution of the monasteries in 1539, Henry VIII ordered its total demolition.

Today only the Norman Arch and parts of the precinct wall remain above ground, forming the perimeter of the Abbey Fields. The tombs of medieval merchants can be seen in the magnificent parish church, while their fine houses are still standing around the town.

Ciren lies close to the heart of the scenic Cotswold region with major attractions like Stow, Chipping Camden and Burford and bigger destinations like Bath and Cheltenham all within about 40 minutes drive. Only slightly farther afield are Shakespeare's Stratford, Stonehenge, Blenheim Palace and the dreaming spires of Oxford. Asphodel is a perfect base to relax or explore.

But you don't always need 'destinations'. One of the delights of the Cotswolds is touring the picturesque country lanes and discovering picture postcard villages where the tourist buses never venture. Relax in the garden of the village cafe or by the fire in the historic pub. All our local recommendations and secrets are revealed in your cottage welcome guide.
