Hidden within a working farm on the outskirts of the sleepy Cotswold village of Weston-sub-Edge lies Sundial Cottage; a traditional farmhouse escape for up to four guests, named in honour of the unique sundial sitting proudly above the front door.
Step inside the stable oak doorway and you immediately get a feel of the cottage's history thanks to the lovely selection of original and traditional features that are thoughtfully placed throughout the property. Oak beams adorn the ceilings, exposed Cotswold stone lines the ground floor walls and the floors are traditionally tiled; this really is a property bursting with old-world charm.
Sleeping up to four guests across two well-appointed bedrooms, this is a cottage for those in search of a taste of Cotswold farming life, with working stables and a busy farm sitting directly across the courtyard from its front door. With a small, enclosed lawned garden and perfectly petite outdoor dining patio, it's great for those who want privacy without the feeling of seclusion - the buzzing market town of Chipping Campden just a 5-minute drive away! This cottage is also great for larger parties when booked alongside its sister properties, Field House and Milliner's Barn, just a short walk down the road, with the total of all three properties sleeping 14+2.
An impressive oak stable door acts as the welcoming entrance point to Sundial Cottage, a real nod to the history of the property and its time as a working farm home. As soon as you arrive, the cottage's rustic charm is evident!
To the left of Sundial Cottage's entrance hall lies the charming farmhouse-style kitchen. Spacious and well-equipped for catering, rustic pine units give the space a genuine country feel, whilst the exposed Cotswold stone wall and beams lining the ceiling add to the rustic charm. At one end sits a dining table for up to four guests, plus a highchair should you need, whilst at the other end, a window allows the kitchen plenty of natural light and is also the perfect viewing spot to observe the daily running of the farm.
To the right of the entrance hall is the living room. In this room, the cottage's history can really be felt. Dual aspect windows overlooking the farmyard to the front and greenery to the rear give this room a bright and airy feel, while also boasting original cosy features such as low beamed ceilings, a large stone fireplace with gas fire, and an elegant, Edwardian-style patterned carpet. You'll also find a TV and plenty of cosy seating - making it the ideal spot to unwind in no matter what the weather is doing outside.
A handy addition to the cottage is the downstairs WC, tucked to the left of the entrance hall as you step through the door.
Head upstairs and you'll find the cottage's two bedrooms and a family bathroom, all boasting the same Cotswold country charm of the property's downstairs living spaces.
Bedroom One is the master bedroom, delicately furnished to offer an olde worlde charm with plenty of contemporary comforts. Decorated in an attractive palette of country creams, in here you'll find a 5ft bed, built-in wardrobe, dresser, and handy seating area with coffee table. Curious souls will love discovering the secret outdoor staircase leading from the bedroom through a private glass doorway along the cottage's exterior; great for views of the garden and surrounding farmland, plus easy garden access for lovers of the great outdoors!
Opposite Bedroom one sits Bedroom Two, a spacious twin that's great for kids or adults who don't mind sharing a room! Furnished with twin beds (which could be pushed together should you prefer), the room benefits from a wardrobe, dresser, and views over the shared courtyard; perfect for little ones who want to watch the farmyard activity!
Sat between the two bedrooms is the cottage's main bathroom. Traditional in style, you'll find a bath with full-height overhead shower, toilet, and basin, plus pretty green floral tiling which gives it a charming country feel.
To the side of the cottage, you'll find its own private enclosed garden, a spacious, lawned area with patio, complete with outdoor dining furniture, ideal for those wanting to make the most of the charcoal BBQ. Enclosed by wooden fencing yet easily accessible from the cottage's front door, and younger guests will be free to stretch their legs to their hearts' content here, with the suntrap patio offering a great spot for adults to enjoy a drink or two in the great outdoors.
