Bothy, Arlington, Nr Bibury, Cotswolds - Sleeps 2 Guests in 1 Bedroom

Cottage in Cirencester with kitchen
As you pull through the wrought iron gates and up the driveway of Arlington House, a stone's throw from the popular village of Bibury, you'll see the Bothy straight ahead. At first view the Bothy seems like an unimposing Cotswold stone barn. However, the moment you open the front door you'll immediately realise you have chosen a luxurious and perfectly proportioned Cotswold bolthole for two.

This old stone bothy was originally used for cattle over the centuries and has recently been converted. It now offers a light, bright and stylish accommodation for two. Downstairs is an open plan, elegant sitting room with a well-equipped corner kitchen.
A spiral, contemporary staircase leads upstairs to a beautiful bedroom with an en-suite shower room. Outside, you are provided with a garden bench at the Bothy's front door, where you can sit and enjoy a peaceful beginning or end to your day in the Cotswolds.
Ground Floor

Living-Dining-Kitchen Area:
Step through the Bothy's front door into the delightful, elegantly furnished, open plan living area, with polished limestone floor tiles, a comfy sofa, and smart TV. A perfectly equipped corner kitchen, with a fridge, toaster, kettle, gas hob, and oven, is at the far end of the room, while a bistro table is provided for guests to dine at, with a window seat providing one of the seats. (Trays are provided should you wish to eat sitting on the sofa.) A fabulous, antique wall-sized mirror reflects light into the room, making this open-plan living area beautifully bright.

A narrow, contemporary spiral staircase winds upstairs to:
First Floor

Simple elegance best describes the Bothy's luxury ensuite bedroom, with its vaulted and exposed beams, grey and white colour scheme and combination of antique and contemporary furniture. The room is furnished with a king-size bed, reading lamp, a wardrobe and drawer, a small sofa, luggage rack and full-length mirror. A hair dryer, iron and ironing board are also provided for guests.

The door in the bedroom that leads to external stairs was originally used by the herdsman who lived above his cattle. The morning sun streams through the door's window, which can be enjoyed while lying in bed, but curtains are provided should you prefer to keep the light out for a lie in! (This door should only be used in case of fire. Please leave the keys in the door at all times.)

The elegant ensuite bathroom has a large walk-in shower, with handheld and overhead showerheads, a contemporary wash basin, a dual flush W.C. and a tall heated towel rail. All towels, shampoo and soap are provided for guests.

A bench to the side of the front door is provided for guests' use – a lovely pace to sit and contemplate the day ahead or the day just gone by.
Guest accommodation at this cottage offers a hairdryer and an iron/ironing board. This accommodation has kitchens with fridges. Bathrooms include baths or showers.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely little cottage for two with all you need
We loved the quirky nature of this old building and the great conversion into a little bolthole for two. Very comfortable king size bed. Recommended

5/5 Excellent

The most perfect getaway!
We couldn't have loved our stay at the Bothy in Bibury more! It was simply a dream. The cottage itself far exceeded our expectations. When you pull into the driveway you see an incredibly charming 300 year old Bothy, that has been incredibly well maintained, rose bushes and terracotta planters. The inside was completely renovated and very clean. It was tastefully decorated and cozy, yet spacious enough for the two of us. We appreciated the organic prosecco and treats that awaited us as well, as well as the fully stocked kitchen of supplies (since we cooked a lot). The cottage was also conveniently located – a few minutes walk from local attractions and breath taking footpaths and trails. We couldn't recommend it enough!
