An enviable picturesque waterfront position directly overlooking the River Coln with views over the private garden patio to the river and water meadows.
The private garden terrace is perfectly located to pour yourself a cup of tea or a glass of wine; relax on the garden bench and watch the idyllic Cotswold village life and Bibury's many swans flat by!
Stackville House's ground floor has an open plan lounge/dinning space and kitchen area for common use (sofa bed also provided in the lounge space). Here you can curl up in front of the fire* after a walk around Bibury or the surrounding Cotswold's; relax playing board games or enjoy a fantastic meal provided or our personal Chef Mike or the village Pub or Restaurant after waning away an afternoon sightseeing or exploring the beauty of the Cotswolds right on your doorstep.
Climb the original 17th century stair to the first floor (rope handle rail and restricted space mean that this maybe be unsuitable for those with restricted mobility) where the Master Bedroom with king size bed and luxury mattress makes your sleep as comfortable as your stay - wake up to the Cotswold birdsong and light pouring through the open windows in summer with uninterrupted views out across the water meadows and Arlington Row.
The good sized cottage bathroom with beautiful roll top bath encourages you to light some candles and enjoy a long luxurious soak after a days walk. A modern electric shower is also provided over the bath for ease of use.
The attic and second bedroom are accessed via a characterful 18th century spiral stair (again suitability for those with restricted mobility may pose a challenge). This oak beamed space with picturesque iron frames windows allows views out over Bibury and beyond and has been renovated into a large 2nd bedroom with another luxury double bed and mattress. Sleeping space for an additional double mattress is available here also.
