We spent a few days at The Padd in February and were really impressed with how comfortable and clean it was. Despite the exceptionally cold weather it was warm and homely unlike some other holiday homes we have stayed in. The location is excellent and it makes a good base to explore the area. Nick and Tracey were very helpful....

A very comfortable, well-equipped cottage with plenty of room, two large ensuite bedrooms and parking just outside the door. Of the fifty-plus U.K. cottages we have stayed at over the years, this would rate in the top three. Well located in the southern Cotswolds for visiting lovely villages, National Trust properties, historic sites and the rolling countryside.

A cosy holiday let with everything you could need and set in a picture perfect village for a holiday exploring all the attractions the Cotswolds have to offer. Can't recommend it too highly.

About the neighbourhood
Ampney Crucis is at the heart of the Cotswolds. Only three miles from Cirencester, the capital of the Cotswolds. Ampney Crucis is neighboured by Ampney St Mary and Ampney St Peter. Ampney Crucis gets its name from the river (Ampney Brook), a tributary of the Thames, and the church (Church of the Holy Cross). The village has a popular pub The Crown of Crucis. Just a short walk away is the Red Lion, situated in Ampney St Mary. Just a couple of miles away are the popular village pubs of The Falcon and Village Pub in Poulton and Barnsley respectively. For those keen to learn more about the history of Ampney Crucis please visit the village website.

How to get there
If approaching the village from Cirencester on the A417 take the 3rd turning on the left after the Crown of Crucis pub. This turning is opposite the Ampney St Mary church (there is a grass verge in the middle of the road). Proceed up the lane but do not take the left turn into the village. The Padd can be found at The Old Mortar Mill immediately left after the turning into the village. We are the last house in the village and found behind a row of conifer trees.

If approaching from London take the M4. At junction 15 exit the motorway and take the 3rd exit, following signs for the A419. Continue along the A419 for about 15 miles. At the turn signposted Driffield and Cirencester Industrial Estate take the exit. At the roundabout take the 2nd exit. Then take the 1st turning on the right, si...
