About this property
Next door to the owner’s own delightful home is this beautifully finished holiday home, The Stables, found in the village of Little Somerford on the Wiltshire/ Gloucestershire borders. Enjoying a great spot nestled in the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, of the Cotswolds, this property is perfect for a couple who love getting out and about outdoors. Wander up the path to the front door past the pretty patio where outdoor seating lies, and enter your new home for the next several days. Step onto the beautiful tiled floor that warms you with underfloor heating and take in the attractive décor, noticing first the bright and quirky green glass kitchen worktops, contrasting well with the sleek white units, and within this compact space you can still whip up some great dishes using the quality appliances including a 2-ring hob and an electric oven. Tucked in the corner next to the classic kitchen dresser is a dining table and chairs, overlooking the window, so a perfect spot to sit down for breakfast and a coffee as you wake up with the morning sunlight flooding in. A lovely mix of old and new creates an interesting decor with an amazing mural of abstract woodlands adding further vibrancy. Beneath the exposed wood beams and the modern glass light fitting, a brown leather sofa awaits you to get snug with your feet up before the wall-mounted TV, while the electric stove adds extra warmth on a winter evening. Tucked past the mural is the double bedroom area, with a calm ambiance and ample storage for your belongings, you will take pleasure in winding down at the end of the day here. Feel refreshed after a long hot shower in the walk-in shower within the wonderfully finished shower room, with everything completed to a fantastic standard. In the evening why not head to the back of the property for a meal or a barbecue, which you can enjoy outdoors for alfresco dining within the patio area at the front to make the most of a balmy summer evening. In the day time, head onto the owner’s tennis court at no extra charge, you can borrow some rackets and balls and delight in your very own Wimbledon. There is also an apple orchard with a paddock with a wild flower meadow to enjoy. Venture into Malmesbury, where you will be spoilt for choice by the pubs and restaurants that await you, as well as the selection of shops for picking up the essentials as well as Malmesbury Abbey on the fringes of the Cotswolds, a 12th century abbey with an on-site cafe to enjoy. Discover the nearby towns of Tetbury and Cirencester with its fine shops and eateries, as well as the larger cities of Bath and Bristol. There are also several important country houses close by including Badminton, Highgrove and Cirencester Park. The Cotswolds itself offers a wealth of opportunity for avid walkers and cyclists. The Cotswold Way winds itself through rolling countryside and past a host of timeless villages. The Stables will provide you with an idyllic holiday home, a perfect retreat for you and your partner to enjoy at any time of the year.
