>> CLEANING PROTOCOL: Every owner of a property listed with Bolthole Retreats has undertaken to implement a series of additional cleaning measures in order to minimise the risk of infection between stays. Housekeepers have been instructed to follow a 30-point guide which involves cleaning first to remove germs and other impurities, and then disinfecting to kills germs with chemicals while wearing disposable gloves and facemasks. All laundry will be washed using a bleach or other disinfectant-based laundry detergent containing active oxygen bleach at a temperature of at least 60 degrees. At least one pot of hand sanitiser, and for the larger properties 2 or 3 pots, will be provided. Implementing these measures will necessarily result in an increase in the time taken to undertake a clean. Therefore, we ask that guests respect the advertised check-in and check-out times, and we will regrettably be unable to agree to any exceptions.

THE SPACE>> Introduction

This picture postcard, early-1800s Cotswold stone cottage has a very welcoming, cosy feel, with its original oak beams, flagstone floors and inglenook fireplace beautifully restored and conserved by the current owners. Holly Cottage is bright and airy too, with modern facilities and plenty of entertaining space provided by the large fully equipped Kitchen, Living-Dining Room, fabulous Garden Room and covered outdoor dining area.

The cottage is decorated and furnished in a contemporary style with soft white and grey paintwork, providing the perfect setting for the traditional features and the modern facilities, which include underfloor heating throughout the downstairs area (beneath the flagstone flooring), a Smart TV with Apple TV connection and a DVD player and a fully equipped Kitchen with everything guests need for a self-catered holiday. Eight guests are comfortably accommodated across four bedrooms, including two king-size double rooms, (one can be set up as a twin), 1 twin room (with 2 standard single beds) and 1 standard double. The cottage has a large ensuite to the Master Bedroom, with a shower and bath and a Family Bathroom with a walk-in shower and full size bath.

Framed by a front garden stocked with mature bushes, trees, climbing roses and jasmine, Holly Cottage sits on a quiet country lane leading to the 12th Century church of St John the Baptist. The front garden wraps around both sides of the cottage, leading to a large courtyard area with grassy knolls, mature trees and borders, a covered seating area, charcoal barbecue, rotary clothes dryer, a summer house/wood store, and private parking for up to three cars.

Coln St Aldwyns is steeped in history, dating back to Roman times. Unusually, and one of the reasons why Coln is such a great find for visitors who want to see the real Cotswolds, there isn’t a modern development in the village, with most of the cottages built in the 17th and 18th Century. Opposite Holly Cottage is a stunning 16th Century manor house, once a home of the wealthy Fettiplace family and a gathering place for non-Conformist thinkers, later becoming part of Hatherop School and later still purchased by Sir Michael Beach Hicks, the 1st Earl St Aldwyns. Just up the lane is the 12th century church and two-minutes’ walk down the lane is the village community store, once the village poor house. Close to the shop is the old bakery and bathhouse, the baths were heated by the bakery’s ovens!

Coln Saint Aldwyns, England, Великобритания

Coln St Aldwyns is steeped in history, dating back to Roman times. Unusually, and one of the reasons why Coln is such a great find for visitors who want to see the real Cotswolds, there isn’t a modern development in the village, with most of the cottages built in the 17th and 18th Century. Opposite Holly Cottage is a stunning 16th Century manor house, once a home of the wealthy Fettiplace family and a gathering place for non-Conformist thinkers, later becoming part of Hatherop School and later still purchased by Sir Michael Beach Hicks, the 1st Earl St Aldwyns. Just up the lane is the 12th century church and two-minutes’ walk down the lane is the village community store, once the village poor house. Close to the shop is the old bakery and bathhouse, the baths were heated by the bakery’s ovens!

Local amenities

The thriving Coln Community Stores is in the centre of the village, two-minutes’ walk from Holly Cottage. Here you’ll find an excellent range of provisions, a cafe, Post Office, off-license, laundry service and lots of local information. There’s even a small cinema in the village (details at the shop) and a bus service (one bus per day) to Fairford and Cirencester, should you want a car-free day trip.

There are two pubs in walking distance of Holly Cottage: The New Inn, a beautiful 17th-century coaching inn with restaurant, bar and gardens, and The Keepers’ Arms in the neighbouring village of Quenington (1 mile away) - an award-winning pub, locally famed for featuring in the Camra Good Beer Guide since 2011.

The closest bigger food shops are in Fairford (4 miles) and Cirencester (9 miles).

Fairford Shops: Well known for its RAF base, the site of Concorde’s maiden flight, and the site of the Royal International Air Tattoo, Fairford is an interesting market town with a selection of small supermarkets (Co-Op, Londis), coffee shops, a Post Office, fuel station, a butcher, Boots pharmacy, and other local-interest stores.

Fairford town dates back to AD 850 when it developed as a safe place to cross the River Coln. Later it became a mill town (wool), with the mill still standing today, but not in operation. Today the River Coln is known for its excellent trout fishing.

The town has an impressive church, St Mary's, known as a Late Perpendicular 'wool' church, with beautiful medieval stained glass and interesting wood and stone carvings.

The Market Place and High Street are where visitors will find most shops, cafes etc, with impressive 17th and 18th century stone houses lining the streets, including 7a Coffee Shop and Linwood Café
There is free parking in the Town Car park, in the Market Place and at the top of the High Street; other streets have one-hour restrictions.

Fairford is a 'Walkers are Welcome' town, the local council provides several walking suggestions and routes taking in the pretty park, water meadows and riverside trails.

Cirencester, 9 miles from Holly Cottage, is the closest major town with lots to see and do. See the ‘Visitor’s Guide to Cirencester’ (below) for more details of amenities there.

Burford, known as the ‘Gateway’ to the Cotswolds’ is just 15 minutes’ drive and has lots independent shops, pubs and cafes, plus great walking nearby.

Cirencester supermarkets: Cirencester has a well-stocked Waitrose and Tesco Extra, as well as an M&S Simply Food, ALDI and Lidl.

Local Eating Out Suggestions

Here are a few of the local places to eat and drink as recommended by the owners of Holly Cottage (further suggestions are provided in the Cirencester guide below):

The New Inn - Coln St. Aldwyns
This pub is only 800 yards from Holly cottage and has an excellent reputation for delicious food.

Barnsley House – Potager Restaurant
Barnsley House is in the village of Barnsley, about 5 miles from Holly Cottage, and is one of the most famous boutique hotels in the Cotswolds, with award winning gardens. Booking is essential.

The Village Pub – Barnsley
This pub is considered one of the best in the Cotswolds. It is owned by Barnsley House and is always very busy, so if you plan to visit be sure to make a reservation.

The Swan at Southrop
Set in a 17th-century village inn, The Swan has a simple motto: ‘home grown, homemade’. Thus, seasonal produce inspires the menu, with ingredients coming fresh from the Southrop Manor Estate’s farm every day.

Daylesford Farm Shop – near Kingham
Hailed as one of the most sustainable organic farms in the UK, Daylesford is a 30-minute drive from Holly cottage and definitely a 'must visit’ for foodies.

The Wheatsheaf Inn – Northleach
A 10-minute drive from Holly Cottage, the Wheatsheaf has the best “snug” area – perfect for post Sunday lunch relaxation in front of the open fire!

The Bell at Sapperton
A charming pub and restaurant that sits between the towns of Stroud and Cirencester in a sleepy little village called Sapperton. Roaring log fires and cosy corners in the winter, and a beautifully landscaped garden and courtyard for summer means the Bell has something for all seasons

Jessie’s Bistro – Cirencester
A fantastic seasonal restaurant – a good option if you find yourself in town.

Made by Bob – Cirencester
Buzzing bistro and deli with chrome and modern art decor serving chic, Euro-English
cuisine – a great lunch venue when out and about in Cirencester.
Local Walks

Step out of the front door and you’re straight into miles and miles of walking. You’ll find a handy leaflet at the cottage describing three circular walks, which all start from the New Inn pub, including an easy 1-mile village walk, a fairly easy 4-mile walk through the Coln Valley to Quenington and an idyllic, moderate 6-mile route to Bibury (famed for its Arlington Row cottages, possibly the most photographed tourist location in the Cotswolds!), where you can have a bite to eat at The Swan, The Catherine Wheel or in the cafe at Bibury Trout Farm. Just a short drive away is the Bathurst Estate in Cirencester and the beautiful National Arboretum at Westonbirt – two great places to walk without having to plan a route.

If you’re staying with little ones, head out on foot past the village shop and on down the hill straight ahead (Hatherop Road) to a safe, secure and immaculate adventure playground, complete with picnic tables and benches. Then wander downhill to the River Coln for a splash in the stream and say hello to the sheep and cows – a truly idyllic scene. If you’re lucky enough to catch a sunset, it’ll be one of the most beautiful you’re ever likely to see!
