If you’re looking for chic, modern and dog-friendly accommodation in the Cotswolds, look no further. With Rural Residence, you’ll be sure to enjoy a relaxing break in beautiful countryside with wonderful walks and amazing food.

Whether you’re planning a weekend break, an extended holiday or are looking for a home-away-from-home, our properties are the perfect venue for your next retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Visit The Cotswolds


The Cotswolds is one of the most beautiful areas in England, where a short break or even an extended holiday will leave you wanting more. Its vast rolling hills, golden stone walls and picturesque country villages make it the ideal location for a relaxing and cosy countryside break. 

From amazing food and beautiful national trails to lively market towns, wildlife parks, palaces, castles and country houses, the Cotswolds offers unlimited opportunities for exploration whatever the weather.


Pet-Friendly Holiday Cottages


When your pet is part of the family, it’s only right that they come on holiday with you. That’s why we are pet-friendly. From a warm welcome and the freedom to explore the UK’s amazing Cotswolds, your pet will love you for bringing them along. 

Your dog will be in heaven, snuffling through the leaves, collecting sticks, splashing in streams and of course, finding every muddy puddle. After a day playing in the countryside, they’ll love snuggling up in their warm beds with their favourite toys.

Welcome To Orchard Barn

Places To Visit


As well as the fantastic places to eat and drink and walk in the Cotswolds, the area also offers an abundance of activities for families, couples and individuals come rain or shine.

From shopping and sightseeing in iconic cities such as Bath and Oxford and enjoying the area’s many historical marvels, you might also wish to visit the local wildlife parks, water parks and picture postcard villages such as Burford and Bourton-on-the-Water.
