Ashdene - Severn Hampton, Lechlade, Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds, England - Sleeps 10-12


Ashdene sleeps up to twelve guests and is situated on the outskirts of the Cotswolds, within easy reach of a number of the country's most famous places. Shakespeare Country at Stratford upon Avon, Bath and Avebury the world famous stone circles, to name just a few - making this a place of interest for all ages with attractions for adults and plenty of great days out for the little ones on the doorstep.

Ashdene was originally two working cottages but today has been extended and converted into stylish modern self-catering accommodation of a high standard. It has a private enclosed indoor swimming pool and is ideal for large groups with five bedrooms (two which are en-suite) all with direct Wi-Fi access and plasma televisions. There is also a cinema/entertainment room in a seperate building within the grounds which consists of seating for twelve guests, along with a quiz machine with a built in juke box, table tennis, snooker table, football table, pinball arcade, sweet machines and toys/games.

The Cottage is furnished to a very high standard and is ideal all year round with an inglenook fireplace for an open fire during the cooler months and extensive grounds (apx half an acre) for relaxing during the summer.

Roves Farm is a short walk away and on the doorstep providing a fantastic place to visit for both the children and adults where you can enjoy a ride on a tractor, feeding the animals, the indoor play area and so much more. For those who enjoy golf, Wrag barn Golf Course in Highworth is just three miles away, Broome manor golf course is six miles and there are several in the local area.

Lechlade and Burford with many good pubs on the river are just six miles. Shakespeare country is twenty miles as is Longleat safari. Avebury and Stonehenge are within fifteen miles and the Roman city of Bath is forty five minutes and well worth a visit. There is a designer outlet shopping centre and an ice rink within six miles, and for those looking for excitement, you can try quad biking just two miles away.
