Welcome to Swan View, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals.

Swan View is a beautiful Cotswold stone cottage, set in the heart of the charming village of Southrop, surrounded by the stunning Cotswolds countryside. The River Leach runs past the village and there are an abundance of walks from the doorstep of the cottage. Southrop is also fortunate to have a very well regarded country pub, and is well placed for exploring the wider Cotswold region, with Burford, the “gateway to the Cotswolds” close by, and Cirencester, the largest market town in the Cotswolds, just 12 miles away. Slightly further afield places, such as Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are within easy reach, and day trips to London are also possible.
This lovely semi-detached property has wooden floors,...

Lovely location, quiet village with very little traffic. Although weather was not the best we managed some local walks from the books provided in the cottage. Cottage had all the utensils to cook your own meals and plenty of plates - so no need to be constantly washing up! Village pub was good and also several other pubs not far...

About the neighbourhood
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone 'wool churches'. The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
