Jasmine Cottage - Luxury Cottage In The Cotswolds

A 300 year old Cotswold stone cottage nestled in the quiet, unspoint village of Windrush, Jasmine Cottage is surrounded by National Trust land, there are numerous walks in the stunning Windrush valley leading to water meadows and idyllic villages. Wildlife and birds are abundant and you will often see foxes, badgers, hares, deer and many beautiful species of birds and wildflowers. It is a perfect cottage to relax by the fire and unwind.

Your home-away-from-home is equipped to make your stay is as relaxed as possible with antique furniture, designer sofas, a claw bath and comfortable beds. This is the perfect cottage to escape from the pressures of the world without having to climb into a car.

Enter this pretty cottage into a light-filled hallway with stone flooring, mullion window and plenty of space for muddy boots and coats. Through the latch door is a cosy sitting room, with exposed beams, two mullion windows, a window seat to watch the world go by, and of course, the beautiful stone fireplace with wood burning stove laid up and ready to light on your arrival. The cottage kitchen is to the rear of the property and, although small, is filled with light and well-equipped with everything you’ll need to prepare and enjoy the wonderful local produce on offer. A small dining area in the kitchen leads you out to the charming patio with garden furniture where you can enjoy al-fresco meals on warm summer days whilst admiring the wonderful garden foliage and flowers which surround you. Climb a few steps up to the main garden area, mostly laid to lawn with herbaceous borders with a bistro table and chairs. Parents will need to be mindful here of a 5′ drop back down to the patio area, shielded by a hedge.

Upstairs, two cosy bedrooms (a king-size and a single room) share the attractive bathroom with a roll-top bath.

When you want to eat out, the historic Fox Inn is a 20 minute walk across the fields. Walkers will enjoy the two mile ramble along the valley to the National Trust village of Sherborne, where the village shop serves excellent breakfasts, lunches and delicious homemade cakes.
