Bay Tree Cottage, Moreton-in-Marsh, Cotswolds - sleeps 5 guests in 3 bedrooms

Family-friendly cottage in Moreton-in-Marsh
Bay Tree Cottage is a stylishly furnished and decorated, quintessentially Cotswold, terraced cottage built of honey-coloured Cotswold stone, with a charming bay window, that sits between two equally pretty, neighbouring properties. The three-story cottage comfortably accommodates five guests but can sleep six (if two guests sleep in the small double bedroom). It is located down a quiet no-through road, immediately opposite St David's Church and its beautifully kept churchyard.

The cottage has a long, south-facing garden (approx. 25m x 5m), accessed through the kitchen at the rear of the house, which is predominately grass with planted borders and a raised gravelled terrace at the southern end where guests can sit and enjoy the sunshine, have a BBQ and eat al fresco. Adjacent to the kitchen is an attached outbuilding (private) and privy – the latter can be used by guests should they need to!

Step in directly from Church Street into the cosy living room, with seating around the open fireplace and a dining area beside the door into the kitchen. The kitchen is small but fully equipped for a self-catering stay. The back door leads from the kitchen out to the garden. Upstairs are three double bedrooms, with a standard double room, a small double room and a family bathroom on the first floor and king-size master bedroom with an en-suite shower room on the top floor. Throughout the cottage are its original mid-18th Century features, including exposed beams, flagstone flooring, beautiful wooden doors and a steep, narrow staircase – something to note for guests with limited mobility.Ground Floor
The Living – Dining Room:
This charming room, with its distinctive bay window, original stone floor (softened with a large sisal rug) and open fireplace, provides a cosy welcome for guests as they step inside. The seating area is furnished with a two-seater sofa, two armchairs and a large beanbag, all positioned to simply enjoy the fire or watch the smart TV. A dining table, with seating for up to six guests, sits at the back of the room beside the door into the Kitchen.

The Kitchen:
The compact but well-equipped kitchen features a butler sink, an electric hob and oven, a large fridge-freezer, a dishwasher and all the crockery, glassware and food preparation items you need for a self-catering stay.

The back door opens from the Kitchen to the south-facing garden and patio… ideal for taking drinks and meals outside for an alfresco drink or meal.First Floor
A door in the Living Room opens to the original (steep) staircase, which is carpeted and has a rope handrail, and leads up to a small landing and the two first floor bedrooms and family bathroom:

Bedroom 2:
Turn left at the top of the stairs through an original pine wood door into the first double bedroom overlooking the ancient roof tops of Church Street and St David's Church across the road. Furnished with a standard double bed, (against the wall), an antique velvet chair, an original fireplace (ornamental) and full-length mirror. A hanging area is provided with padded hangers.

Bedroom 3:
This light and bright bedroom, the smallest in the house, with a view over the garden, is furnished with a small double bed* (against the wall), a bedside table and reading lamp and hooks with padded hangers to hang clothes. You'll be reminded you're in a 17th-Century home by the low doorway into the bedroom… mind your head, but once you're in the ceiling height is perfectly 21st Century! (*The small double bed is 4ft /121cm wide and comfortably sleeps one adult but could sleep two smaller guests).

Family Bathroom:
The compact but fabulously quirky family bathroom features a full-size, roll-top bath, with an over-bath rain shower, a handmade washbasin and vanity unit with a mirror above, a toilet and a heated towel rail.Second Floor
A door off the landing leads to a steep, carpeted staircase with a rope handrail to the second-floor.

Bedroom 1 Master En-suite:
A loft conversion, Bedroom 3 is the largest bedroom in the house, with exposed timbers (note low beams to one side of the bed), a soothing, chalky-purple coloured walls and a great view to the front across to Moreton's ancient rooftops. Furnished with a king-size bed, with bedside tables and reading lamps to each side, and a small chest of drawers under the Velux window (with blind). A hanging and storage area is provided with padded hangers and a woven basket.

En-suite Shower Room:
The en-suite is cleverly fitted into a corner of the bedroom and features a cubicle shower with an over-head rain shower and hand-held shower fitting, toilet, hand-built washbasin and vanity unit.Outside
Head through the kitchen and out into the pretty, south-facing garden with a lawn, flower beds and a raised terrace at the far end – a real suntrap on a sunny day. Sitting by the fig tree with the charcoal BBQ alight, you'll truly be able to relax and enjoy your tranquil surroundings. Adjacent to the kitchen is an attached outbuilding with a washer/dryer, the latter can be used by guests should they need to!

5/5 Excellent

Excellent location, excellent property - exactly what we needed
Only a 3 night stay so largely wanted to chill but also be somewhere dog friendly. The property had a great outside space and great cooking facilities, with the weather so nice it meant we could eat in without being compromised. A stones throw away from the main town yet very very quiet. Perfect retreat - thank you! Gina and Lee
