There are few better examples of an English country cottage than No. 1 Bobble Court, Little Rissington, Gloucestershire.
It's in the heart of the beautiful Cotswolds region, one of England's loveliest yet within about an hour of Heathrow.
The area is filled with picturesque villages, quaint pubs, great historic houses, stately homes and gardens to visit. In little more than an hour's drive, you can reach London, Oxford, Cheltenham, Bath, Stratford-on-Avon, Gloucester and Worcester.
It's one of the best located areas in England.
The cottage exudes history. Around the time it was being built sometime in the 1600s, the last great battle of the English Civil War was being fought just up the road in Stow-on-the-Wold. The old stocks in Stow village centre are a vivid reminder of those times.
But the house has known many happy times, too. It sits in the heart of a village surrounded by beautiful English countryside.
The house is a comfortable, elegant 3-bedroomed cottage with a beautiful sitting room and separate dining room. Breakfast can be taken in the kitchen and coffee, in the garden where little Cotswold stone walls filled with lavender plants, provide a lovely backdrop. The garden is modern yet fits the traditions of the cottage and its very low maintenance.
