Description

In the perfect location to discover the delights of the Cotswolds. Surrounded by countryside, ideal for walking, riding and cycling.

This detached holiday cottage is aptly named, with several large ponds, a great variety of ducks and birdlife in the area and the owner’s living on-site. Visitors have sole use of a fully enclsoed pond area (temporary fencing for pond available on request) to the side of the cottage, ideal for dogs and children. Just 1 mile from Cricklade, a small, historic, 9th-century Saxon town, lying at the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is the only Wiltshire town situated on the banks of the River Thames. It’s midway between Swindon and Cirencester, and is surrounded by lovely countryside ideal for walking, riding and cycling. At the north of the town is North Meadow, now a National Nature Reserve, and home to the rare ’Snakeshead Fritillary’ which flower in April. Nearby is the Cotswold Water Park which offers activities including sailing, water/jet skiing, fishing and bird watching. Travelling around the Cotswolds there are many places to visit, step back in time by wandering the streets of the Regency spa town of Cheltenham, as well as ancient market towns such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Anglo-Saxon Winchcombe, where you’ll discover Sudeley Castle. Beautiful ancient villages of note in this area include Broadway (’Jewel of the Cotswolds’), Bourton-on-the-Water (Little Venice), Stanton, and Snowshill. Some of the best Cotswold gardens include Batsford Arboretum, Hidcote, Kiftsgate, Sezincote and Bourton House. Leading visitor attractions include Snowshill Manor, the mysterious Rollright Stones and Chastleton House. Some particularly special historic towns include Cirencester (the Roman capital of the Cotswolds), Tetbury, Painswick (often called Queen of the Cotswolds), Burford, Malmesbury and Woodstock (home of Blenheim Palace). Some tourist attractions of special note are Westonbirt Arboretum, Woodchester Mansion, Kelmscot Manor, Malmesbury Abbey and Gardens, and the village of Bibury, which was once described by William Morris as ’the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds’. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

Ground floor: Living/dining room. Kitchen. Shower room with toilet. First floor: 2 bedrooms: 1 double (6ft) with additional pull-out single, 1 twin. Separate toilet.

    Really great cottage and very helpful and welcoming owners. Modern decoration, well maintained and great finishing touches. Not the most idyllic location, Cricklade itself isn’t as quaint and remote as I thought it might be, but I maybe should have researched that myself before! Kids and dog loved it too, considering dogs are allowed it did not smell ‘doggy’ at all, it was incredibly clean. Lovely wood burning fire and great TV options with Netflix, which was handy as the weather wasn’t great. The property itself is fantastic, no complaints at all. Thank you!

    We spent a lovely family Christmas at Pond House while visiting one of our daughters in panto at Swindon. The cottage was clean and comfortable- we loved the sofa and the beds and bedding were lovely! We enjoyed a great walk in the local area country park. The cottage was well equipped and the owners even provided a decorated Christmas tree😊 Had lovely views of the surrounding countryside and of the ducks and little pony too! We would definitely stay again and would recommend Pond House to others.

    We had a great time lots for our two teenagers to do. Plenty of walks for the dog. And as we only booked the day before it was so easy to book and the lady who met us was friendly and gave some advice on where to walk. Super holiday
