17th century cotswold cottage

Lechlade is a small town on the edge of the Cotswolds. Our stone house was built around 1660 and has beams and crooked floors and ceilings. It is cosy with good accommodation and a pleasant garden for outside eating with greenhouse and large productive veggie patch. We can walk our terrier dog from the back door without a lead and the village, which is easily walkable, has many cafes and two small supermarkets as well as butchers, chemists etc. There are also some very good gastro pubs close at hand with excellent restaurants. Oxford, Cirencester, Cheltenham and Bath are all within an hours drive. Trains from Swindon mainline station take approximately 1 hr to London Paddington.

Our house is not smart but very cosy and comfortable. If you like country life with small town attractions I`m sure you would be happy. Enjoy putting your feet up on the squashy sofas. The kitchen has a table that seats 10 at a push and the separate dining room has a large table. Lighting the open fire after a pub lunch and a long walk in fabulous Cotswold countryside. That`s what we enjoy! As we will probably not find people wanting to exchange in middle of winter we can offer our house for a non reciprocal exchange. May or September are lovely months in England and we can leave the house for you then. This might work for you.

About the location

We are within an hour from Oxford, Bath, Cirencester and Cheltenham for good entertainment and tourism. The infant Thames is five minutes walk down a track and trains to London are 48 minutes from nearby Swindon. We can walk, either across the field, or the road to the village, 10 minutes away. Lechlade is the highest navigable part of the Thames and has a small amount of summer tourism... lots of cafes, a handsome church and shops to browse. Burford is less than 10 minutes away with antique shops and lots of tourism!
