Bowles Cottage is a stylish, detached holiday cottage which lies on the edge of the village of Southrop, in the county of Gloucestershire. The village is skirted by the River Leach and is in an unspoilt Cotswolds location with many walks directly from the cottage to surrounding towns and villages, this cottage is a real delight to stay in. The characterful market towns of both Lechlade and Fairford are close by, with many quintessential Cotswold villages to explore including Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold, and plenty of sporting activities to indulge in including water sports, boating on the Thames, fishing, golf, walking and horse riding. Numerous museums are also nearby, such as the fascinating Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford and the Ashmoleum with its Egyptian collection of mummies and other world treasures. Interesting days out can be had at many working farms and bird sanctuaries. The Cotswold Farm Park near Guiting Power specialises in rare breeds of animals and offers seasonal demonstrations include lambing, shearing and milking. Slimbridge Wetlands Centre is an internationally important reserve and home to the world’s largest collection of rare and exotic water birds. Only a short distance from the cottage is the Cotswold Wildlife Park. This 120-acre park is home to a collection of animals from all over the world, many of which are threatened or endangered species in the wild. Visitors will also find gardens, a café, an adventure playground and a narrow gauge railway. Shop, pub and restaurant 1½ miles.

First impression was a modern bungalow in a quiet rural setting . Looking further the place needed a good clean .The dishwasher was greasy and smelly with food pieces in the greasy filter .Some cutlery and crockery were not clean . Only one very thin tea towel and one j cloth . Bathroom had mould in the shower and no cleaning cloths . Beds were very comfortable. The heating was excellent keeping us warm and cosy . There were no instructions for recycling rubbish and the bins were full to overflowing . We couldn’t use the WI FI the password didn’t work . Apart from my moans we had a lovely week in a beautiful setting .
