Room to relax

The spacious living room offers you the perfect opportunity to curl up with a comforting hot drink or refreshing glass of something stronger after a busy day exploring the Cotswolds. Here, you can relax with a book, catch up on your favourite television programme or settle down to watch a DVD of your choice. There is plenty of room for everyone to spread out with sofas, armchairs and handy footstools. There are also some throws for wrapping up in to help make your evenings even cosier.

Dining at home

Ideally placed between the kitchen and the sitting room, the dining room is at the heart of the cottage where you can share meals around the lovely wooden table that also extends if you want to play board games or try your hand at one of our more challenging jigsaws! Here you can also spread out maps or pour over travel guides to help plan your holiday activities. There is even free wi-fi for those all-important internet searches.


The spacious kitchen is very well-equipped for all your self-catering needs, from a quick cuppa to a three course meal. But if you don’t feel like putting your pinny on then pop in to the delightful 17th Century former coaching inn that’s just around the corner from the cottage for some traditional pub fayre. When you arrive you’ll find fresh milk in the fridge and a welcome tray with coffee, tea, sugar and biscuits to help settle you in to your new ‘home from home’.


All three bedrooms are on the first floor. The comfortable beds are made up with 100% cotton bed linen to ensure you get that perfect night’s sleep. You should awake with fully re-charged batteries, ready for your next ‘grand day out’.

Family bathroom

The bathroom is on the first floor. After a full day exploring the beautiful Cotswolds you can take a well- earned and relaxing hot soak in the bath or freshen up under the walk-in shower. There is also a handy downstairs cloakroom.

Outside space and parking

Gable Cottage is an end-terrace Victorian cottage on a quiet no-through road. There is a private driveway with room for up to two cars. To the side of the cottage the stable doors open out from the kitchen onto a pretty courtyard garden where you can relax with a cup of tea in the morning or a glass of bubbly in the evening. 

Pet Friendly

As dog owners ourselves we understand how important it is that your pet is happy and well looked after while you’re on holiday. There’s no better way to make this happen than to take your pet with you. We have plenty of great walks in the area which our own two family dogs, Molly and Tara, always enjoy. We can welcome up to two dogs (£25 per dog) and we will do our best to make your pet feel at home, here at Gable Cottage.
