The Chestnuts is an outstanding, traditional, yet chic, Cotswold Holiday Cottage, the main part of which dates back to the 1850s. It has many original features including a curved stone stairway, beamed ceilings and a large inglenook fireplace with bread oven. The original building has recently been sympathetically extended and today the property comprises four bedrooms, two lounges, large dining area, two luxury bathrooms and a separate spa style shower room. All the rooms are interior designed in soothing neutral colours with original art works and artefacts.
