The Old Coach house is an attractive early c19th Cotswold Stone building which was originally a stable with trap house above and an adjoining Victorian potting shed.
The furnishings are in keeping with the cottage; comfortable, pretty, homely and spotlessly clean but it is neither luxurious nor over-spacious!
Visitors tell us how much they love our cottage and the surrounding area, and many return year after year.
