The Chestnuts - Luxury Cottage In The Cotswolds
Situated in the beautiful village of Shilton, this award winning cottage is a perfect Cotswolds Hideaway. The Chestnuts has been lovingly restored and refurbished throughout to preserve the traditional whilst being lavished with contemporary luxuries. Stone floors, oak beams and inglenook fireplaces exude old world charm, while stylish furnishings, original art and a kitchen equipped for the keenest chef, make this an ideal base whatever the season.
From your very first step into the cottage you are aware of the perfect blending of old and new. A modern kitchen leads through to the newly added garden room with direct access to the rear garden. The spacious dining area has beautiful exposed Cotswold stone walls and enough seating for eight guests. The main sitting room, with inglenook fireplace, wood burning stove and exposed beams offers a perfect place to retire to of an evening as night draws in. The garden room doubles up as a movie/entertainments room with a Sony 4k television, Bluetooth soundbar, DVD player, library of books and plenty of board games to keep all ages amused.
Each first floor wing of the house is accessed by its own staircase leading to two double bedrooms and a family bathroom. The master bedroom of each wing has a king-size bed and floor to ceiling windows complete with Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens and woodlands.
Outside is a private landscaped garden looking out onto the meadow and the village ford. With plenty of outdoor seating this is the perfect place to enjoy a morning coffee or an early evening drink after a long day exploring the Cotswolds.
The village was used as a location in the popular television drama, Downton Abbey: the Old Forge, beside the ford, became the Red Lion pub and the delightful little 18th century hump-backed bridge also featured. With its attractive ford across ‘The Shill’ brook, a traditional village green, pretty stone cottages and the popular Rose and Crown village pub (just across the road form The Chestnuts), the village of Shilton is a truly wonderful Cotswold experience.
