Allow me to plagiarize from the website offering my cottage for rent.
“The Old Reading Room is an exceptionally well presented, personal and romantic country cottage set in the heart of this lovely and tranquil village. The cottage which itself is contemporary and light, and fantastically located to explore the Cotswold’s, has been meticulously restored (and maintained) to a very high specification from what was originally the old school room where local children would have practiced their reading and music.
The cottage provides light, airy and extremely welcoming accommodation set across two floors, with a number of traditional features balancing out a clean and modern feel, including traditional Cotswold stone walls, open-log burning fire and pretty beams. Externally the property has access to a peaceful, secluded country cottage garden. The Old Reading Room is situated in the heart of Bledington, an archetypal Cotswold village with a quintessential village green, attractive stream with Bledington ducks, together with the acclaimed The Kings Head, which serves real ale as well as good food.
The Old Reading Room sits about a 3 minute walk from The Village Green and (more importantly!) the village pub. The village of Bledington is a truly quintessential village in every sense, a quiet spot in the countryside filled with attractive cottages and houses and views. It is located in the valley of the River Evenlode, close to the famous Cotswold towns of Stow-on-the– Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford all of which are between 5 and 15 mins drive away.
Bledington lies on the Oxfordshire Way walk which is a super trail which takes you up on the wolds (hills) via Wyck Beacon and then down to Bourton-on-the-Water.”
Let’s see……contemporary, stone walls, fireplace, Village Green, and pub only five minutes walk….what more can a man ask?
