Little Maunditts Cottage
Sleeps a maximum of: 6
Pricing From: £510.00
This sympathetically restored barn has the charm of an old building but with the benefits of all modern facilities, whilst being tucked into a quiet lane in the historic village of Sherston. A perfect base for exploring the area, just five miles from Malmesbury and the National Arboretum at Westonbirt.
The property benefits from three double bedrooms, all of which are en-suite (so no squabbling over the best room!). Little Maunditts Cottage was completed to a very high standard in early 2015. The sympathetically restored barn has the charm of an old building but with the benefits of all modern facilities.
It has a wealth of interesting features including fabulous marble radiators and handsome oak doors reclaimed from a Cotswold Manor House. The large modern kitchen has a range cooker, dishwasher, etc and the dining table comfortably seats eight. An additional seating area means the kitchen is the sociable place to hang out whether cooking or relaxing and pouring the wine! South-facing triple bi-fold doors open onto the delightful enclosed garden bringing the outside indoors and making al fresco dining an easy option.
All three en-suite bedrooms are equally well equipped so couples and families travelling together can all enjoy a master suite each. The additional cosy sitting room is well equipped with local maps and guidebooks for you to borrow during your stay. The cottage is heated with underfloor heating throughout the downstairs area & also in all the bathrooms so it is always warm underfoot.
The bedrooms have central heating. Tucked away in a quiet lane in the very centre of the historic village of Sherston, voted by The Times newspaper as the 5th most desirable place to live in Britain! This delightful and friendly village hosts many traditional events and is especially renowned for the annual Boules Tournament weekend in July which attracts teams from all over the country - and even from France. Little Maunditts is within easy walking distance of the village centre where you will find the excellent Rattlebone Pub, a wine shop, Tucks Farm shop & florist, and the community run Post Office and Village Stores.
There are plenty of wonderful scenic Cotswold walks both direct from the doorstep of the cottage or a short drive away.
