Lantern House - Sherston, Malmesbury, Cotswolds, Wiltshire, England - Sleeps 5+2

Lantern House

Lantern House is a Four Star (Gold Award) period holiday cottage that offers spacious holiday accommodation for five adults plus two infants/babies. It is located in the pretty Wiltshire village of Sherston in the Cotswolds - a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Situated five miles West of Malmesbury and five miles South West of Tetbury, the cottage is ideal for a relaxing holiday or to use as a base for exploring the many attractions that this central part of the country has to offer.

Sherston village has a Post Office/grocery shop that stocks great local produce which is just a short stroll down the high street from the cottage. There is an excellent farm shop selling meat, bread and vegetables, a wine shop, two excellent pubs serving food and a large children's playground and playing field - all within easy walking distance.

The village sits in the southern part of the Cotswolds and is ideally positioned for visiting the picturesque village of Lacock (NT) which has been used as the filmset for a number of productions including Cranford, Harry Potter and Pride and Prejudice. Castle Coombe is another of the area's pretty villages and a must to visit (popular with 'setjetters' and featured in Dr Dolittle and War Horse); as is Westonbirt National Arboretum with one of the world's most spectacular tree gardens (close by and a pleasant drive along the country lanes).

A little further South and just a thirty minute drive is the Roman City of Bath and Bristol, a historic harbour city. The traditional market town of Tetbury is a little closer and just ten minutes away and is England's premier destination for antique hunters and also the home of Prince Charles's much visited Highgrove Shop.

To the North you can explore the beautiful Cotswolds countryside; historic towns such as Cirencester, Cheltenham, Stow-on-the-Wold and Gloucester and also beautiful villages including Bibury, Bourton-on-the-Water, Chipping Campden, Burford and Broadway.
