Settled on the edges of the Cotswolds Hills, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, in the charming village of Mickleton, Gloucestershire, is this superb, mid-terrace, Cotswold stone cottage, Laburnum Cottage. Enjoying a central location with easy access to all amenities and its own private front garden with further access to communal gardens, Laburnum Cottage is an idyllic dwelling for two couples or a family of four wanting to escape to the Cotswolds. Park up in the convenient off-road parking space, before unloading your bags and taking in your peaceful surroundings. Be welcomed into the living/dining room, where you can look forward to cosying up on the sofa with loved ones as you select your favourite film from the Smart TV. If you are staying in to eat you can make your way through to the well-equipped kitchen, where you can rustle up flavoursome meals with the help of the electric oven, gas hob and microwave, as well as a dishwasher for ensuring an easy cleanup! Gather around the dining table for four to savour a delicious meal as you open a bottle of wine and toast to a wonderful holiday. The ground floor also has a cloakroom with coat hanging area and also a cupboard under the stairs where there is a handheld vac always on charge. The airing cupboard is located in the bathroom, where you will find the washing machine and gas central heating boiler making it warm and easy to dry any washing. Make your way up to the first floor where you can indulge in a blissful soak in the bath or wash away the day in the walk-in shower, before getting your rest in one of two well-presented bedrooms, a king-size, or a twin bedroom which can be found on the second floor. After a comfortable nights sleep, begin your day with a leisurely stroll through the local village, where you will find a well-stocked convenience store & farm shops, where you can pick up fresh and local produce for cooking up your favourite holiday meals. If you fancy an evening of no cooking, there are two welcoming pubs, the Kings Arms which serves excellent food worthy of a top class restaurant or if you would like something more traditional try the Butchers Arms. Nearby, you will find the National Trust site of Hidcote, superb 20th-century gardens where lawn games can be played and offering exceptional views and two on-site cafes. Next stop is the market town of Chipping Campden, home to the Court Barn Museum where you can learn more about the town’s local artist school and the history of the artists, and the magnificent National Trust Market Hall, where you can wander through the 17th-century open market hall and soak up the town’s history. Walkers needn’t feel left behind as a visit to Chipping Campden is the perfect spot to join the scenic Cotswolds Way, a 102-mile-long footpath that boasts some of the best views in the area. Further afield is Stratford-upon-Avon, famous for being the birthplace of playwright, William Shakespeare, here you can walk the footsteps of the great literary at his former home and schoolroom, visit the MAD Museum, or step back in time at Tudor World. For an unforgettable adventure to the Cotswolds, choose Laburnum Cottage.

A lovely cottage , well equipped , clean and comfortable A lovely area to stay to explore the Cotswolds a good local shop and 2 local pubs serving good food
The cottage stayed cool in the very hot weather by keeping the blinds and curtains closed during the day. Sykes information was incorrect in that there is no tumble drier and arrival time is 4pm. We had a lovely holiday and highlights were the GWSR steam train rides from Broadway, and the excellent viewpoint at Dover's Hill. The local shop is good, and the pub opposite has a huge garden with sunshades, menu quirky. Lots of National Trust places nearby too. Other good pubs "Pheasant" Toddington and "Bell" Welford on Avon.
The cottage is situated behind a high wall so not directly on the main road, which meant that it was lovely and quiet. Finding it was a little tricky though. It is on the corner just after the red telephone box- it is on the opposite side of the road and not opposite the pub as it reads on the instructions. The cottage is well equipped for 4 persons and is over 3 floors, the lounge area is very comfortable. The bathroom is huge and has a huge shower this was the reason we chose it as we needed a separate walk-in shower due to mobility issues within our party. The main bedroom is opposite. The twin room is on the top floor and is airy, there is no toilet on this floor. The cottage has the added benefits of a dishwasher and washing machine(which we didn't use). The dishwasher made life very easy. There is no freezer box in the fridge, so a bit tricky if you are taking freezer blocks for a cool bag. We had a lovely stay and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a well-maintained, clean, conveniently located property from which to tour the Cotswolds.
