About Arlington House

Arlington House is, in the words of Mary Poppins, practically perfect in every way, although even Poppins would struggle to find fault with this gorgeous stone cottage in the most desirable village in the Cotswolds. With space for six guests to sleep in three bedrooms, Arlington House is within walking distance of the River Eye and the Slaughters Country Inn Pub and Restaurant.

The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is incredibly pretty with lush countryside and charming towns and villages. Buildings made from local Cotswold stone line original streets, the layout of which dates back centuries. Lower Slaughter is a small collection of charming period cottages, of which Arlington House is one. Two small stone bridges span the river, and there are photo opportunities at every turn. Not even Hollywood could dream up a place as lovely as this!

One of the loveliest ways to experience the beauty of the Slaughters is with a relaxing stroll from the cottage past The Church of St Mary the Virgin (which has medieval origins) alongside the river, past Lower Slaughter Manor, before reaching Upper Slaughter. One of the highlights of staying at Arlington House is that you can leave the village to tourists during the day while you go out and explore, returning in the evening when it is quiet and peaceful.

Some favourite Cotswold towns to see include Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold (walk there across the fields!), where the market square has been a place to buy and sell for centuries, and Bourton-on-the Water (again within walking distance) which is home to the Model Village, the Cotswolds Motor Museum, Birdland and the Dragonfly Maze. Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park and the Cotswolds Wildlife Park for the more exotic varieties are always a hit with younger guests, while adults may enjoy a tour of the Cotswold Brewery. Don't miss the yew trees at St Edward's Church in Stow, which are so old that they have grown to become part of the fabric of the medieval church.

The Cotswolds is a beautiful place to visit regardless of whether you are escaping for a romantic weekend or taking the family for a week of discovery and fun. There is miles of countryside to walk and cycle through, tea rooms and antique shops, National Trust properties and quirky landmarks that make this area one of Britain's favourite holiday destinations.

Location (The Cotswolds)

Accommodation Comprises:

Arlington House is a detached period property set back from a quiet lane behind wrought iron gates. It has a traditional layout with the living areas and kitchen on the ground floor and the bedrooms upstairs.


  • The generous proportions of the entrance hall, complete with beautiful wooden flooring, allow it to be used as an extra seating area.
  • Spacious sitting room with exposed oak beams, original parquet flooring, and dual aspect windows that let in lots of natural light. Comfortable sofas and armchairs are positioned around the fireplace with its log burner. There is a television with a DVD player, and the owners have provided a selection of books and information about the local area.
  • Dining room with an extendable dining table that can seat eight people with ease. Its sunny yellow walls and large window framing views of the garden make it a pleasure to be in, even on a cold winter's morning. The dining room extends into the kitchen, with the areas partially separated by a countertop.
  • Fitted kitchen with a dishwasher and washing machine, as well as the usual complement of appliances and equipment you would expect from a high-quality self-catering property. Dual aspect windows look out on to the garden.
  • Downstairs cloakroom with WC and handbasin.


  • Two bedrooms each with kingsized bed, bedside tables and reading lights, and a built-in wardrobe.
  • Third bedroom with two single beds and proper storage.
  • Family bathroom with a deep roll-top bath, walk-in shower, WC and handbasin.

Outside: Arlington House sits behind private gates with parking for up to four cars at the front of the cottage. There is an enormous garden to the rear, which is flat and mainly lawn, and a paved patio with a table and chairs.

Additional Information: All utilities, sheets and towels are included, as is WiFi and a basket of fuel for the log burner. Short breaks are possible - 3 night minimum stay 'off peak' (from £120/weekday night) and 4 nights during 'peak' from £130/weekday night (short breaks including a weekend have a £10-£15/night surcharge added). Arlington House is strictly a non-smoking property.
