Jackdaw Cottage, Westley Farm.
England: Heart of England: Gloucestershire and the Cotswolds: Chalfont
ETB 3 Star
Beautifully secluded, stone built, and tucked into a bank on an 80 acre hill farm. Abounding with wild woods and banks of meadow flowers.
Surely the ultimate in romantic hideaway cottages. Situated on a quiet hill farm in Cotswold Country near Chalford. Jackdaw is 400 meters from the farmhouse down a farm track. The living room with staircase, kitchen, and second bedroom are on the ground floor, with the main bedroom and bathroom above. Locally there are a surprising number of pubs and restaurants with menus ranging from 'cordon bleu' to 'bangers & mash'.
Garden / Grounds:
There is a small paved yard in the front enclosed by a stone wall. Badgers have been regular evening visitors for the last five years and expect to be fed.
Views, wildlife and local environment:
Rural views as good as any in England. The Cotswold village of Oakridge lies just accross the valley, the unique village of Chalford is a mile, and Cirencester and Stroud are just fifteen minutes drive. As well as the badgers, buzzards and foxes are also common visitors, and there are numerous deer in the viscinity.
This is a romantic hideaway cottage.
