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.

If dogs could describe their idea of the perfect holiday, they would describe the Oxfordshire Cotswolds.

After a day playing in the countryside, there is plenty of room in the kitchen or living area for your pet’s bedding and favourite toys and the gentle warmth of the Eco fire heating will lull them into happy dreams.

We love animals, and please ask our guests to observe the following rules:

      • Our cottages are cosy, so no more than 1 x medium sized or 2 x small dogs are
      • Dogs must remain within your control at all times, either on a lead or in a carrier if
        directly outside the cottage.
      • Dogs may remain alone in the kitchen if they are well behaved.
      • Dogs that are disruptive to neighbours or our staff or causing damage, cannot be left
        alone and must remain in your control.
      • With the exception of service dogs, upstairs is out of bounds.
      • In consideration of all guests, please clean up after your dog and keep them within
        your control at all times.
      • We expect you to prevent your dog from making excessive noise, being disruptive or
      • If the cottage requires excessive cleaning, or if damage is incurred because of your
        dog’s actions, then we may have to charge for additional services and repairs.


Welcome to the Cotswolds, a very special, very wonderful place. A short break or even an extended holiday in the Cotswolds will leave you wanting more and you’ll be booking your next Cotswolds holiday as soon as you return home!

The Cotswolds covers a huge area – almost 800 square miles – and runs through five counties (Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire). One of the delights of visiting the Cotswolds is exploring the different areas, each with its own identity, yet all with those defining Cotswold features: golden stone and rolling hills, the ‘wolds’.

Explore quintessentially English villages of honey-coloured stone; take in splendid, lively market towns; visit some of the country’s greatest palaces, castles and country houses; marvel at the natural world in acclaimed reserves and at some of the most famous arboretas in Britain; walk through breath-taking landscapes along historic trails; or make a splash in our lake-land area with its own inland beach.

There’s a vibrant buzz in places like Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tewkesbury, Stroud and close by in Witney. And an arty heartbeat too – which extends to the wealth of festivals that are testimony to the creative vibe of the region.

The Cotswolds is also richly rural: more than 3,000 miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore; ancient woodlands and wildflower meadows; 4,000 miles of historic Cotswold stone walls dividing up the landscape.

Unsurprisingly this landscape provides a rich harvest of with local cheeses, meats, and drinks appearing prominently on the menus of the gastro pubs, old inns, colourful cafes and fine dining restaurants scattered generously across the region.

From fabulous gardens to amazing shops, we could go on … but why not come and see for yourself?
