Rose Tree Cottage sleeps up to six guests and is a pretty stone Grade II listed holiday cottage which affords a fabulous position in the very Heart of one of the Cotswolds' most desirable villages, Lower Slaughter. Overlooking the old mill, this detached cottage is just fifty yards from the River Eye and within walking distance of two hotels for a meal out - This truly is an idyllic Cotswold location and a perfect place for a relaxing holiday or to use as a base for exploring the area.
Lower Slaughter sits at the very heart of the Cotswolds, near to the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold and the pretty village of Bourton-on-the-Water. The River Eye winds its way through the middle of the village with small stone bridges acting as crossing points. The mill has a museum and gift shop, along with riverside tea rooms and a working water wheel (it serves fabulous ice creams!).
Lower Slaughter Manor is a grand country house hotel in the heart of the village, as is The Slaughters Country Inn which is a charming riverside hotel offering a restaurant, bar menu and in the summer months, drinks, tea and meals on the Riverside Terrace.
Bourton-on-the-Water is only five minutes drive away (or a pleasant half hour walk) with the local supermarket situated en route. A very pretty historic village with lots of interesting shops, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, it offers plenty of attractions including: Birdland Park and Gardens, Cotswold Motoring Museum and Toy Collection, The Model Village, Cotswold Perfumery, Fundays Play Barn, The Dragonfly Maze and Bourton Model Railway. The Cotswold Farm Park and Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens are also close by.
Also within the local area are the villages of Chipping Campden, Upper Slaughter, Broadway and Burford, along with the popular towns of Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. The Roman City of Bath is also within driving distance for a day trip out and the area has an abundance of country houses, castles and gardens including Blenheim Palace (the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill), Hidcote Manor Gardens, Painswick Gardens, Sudeley Castle and Kiftsgate Court Garden.
