About The Garden House

Garden House is a sensational holiday rental in a tranquil location in the heart of the Wiltshire Cotswolds. The stylish property dates from the 1700s and was originally a dairy before a 21st Century revamp saw it become a wonderful holiday cottage sleeping six people in three bedrooms. A central glazed sunroom joins original Cotswold stone, oak beams and vaulted ceilings to create a unique and welcoming place where families and friends can enjoy exploring the beautiful English countryside. Garden House is in Nettleton Shrub, less than a mile from the Salutation Inn in the village of The Gib and two miles from the farmshop at Burton.

Nettleton Shrub is a small village in a gorgeous rural location only half an hour from Bath and within easy reach of Bristol and 4-miles from junction 17 on the M4. It doesn't take long to get here, but it certainly feels like you've escaped to somewhere really special. The Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is famous worldwide for its beauty and charm. Picture thatched roofs, cottage gardens and humpback bridges crossing lazy rivers, and you are almost there. However, the area around Nettleton has something extra. Take a 30-minute stroll through fields and countryside to reach Castle Combe, a place so photogenic that it has been used as a backdrop for films like Warhorse. Even more photogenic is the National Trust village of Lacock and Lacock Abbey, parts of which are instantly recognisable to generations of Harry Potter fans as Hogwarts' hallways and potions rooms.

The beauty doesn't stop with Lacock. A 15-minute drive from the cottage is Bowood House, home to the Earl of Shelbourne, who has an adventure playground your children will talk about for years. Unwind and relax in the Thermae Bath Spa's healing waters or get your blood pumping with a lap or two of Castlecombe Circuit. Westonbirt Arboretum is breathtaking in every season, especially in autumn. If you stay at Garden House over the first weekend in May, then you will be in perfect time to attend the prestigious Badminton Horse Trials.

Garden House is one of three stylish and comfortable holiday cottages at Fosse Farm beside the ancient Fosse Way Roman Road that stretches all the way from Exeter to Lincoln, covering 220 miles. When booked together, the properties sleep 16-22 people and are a wonderful choice for family reunions, milestone celebrations, or hosting guests from out of town if you are getting married at nearby Grittleton House or The Manor House. Please see the owner's website for details.
