Sleeps 12 in 6 bedrooms with 3 shower rooms, 1 bathroom and a WC

Bridge Cottage:
A superb example of a historic Cotswolds house that has been updated and sympathetically restored to provide the perfect country experience.

Ground Floor:
The large sitting room at the front of the house has exposed beams, flagstone floors and a woodburner set in an inglenook with plenty of seating for a games night or a relaxing evening in front of the fire.
To the right is the dining room with flagstones with underfloor heating and a dining table that can expand to seat 12 comfortably.
A low doorway at the back takes you through to the expansive kitchen also with underfloor heating as well as an Everhot cooker plus a fan oven and induction hob, two whisper quiet dishwashers and an American style side-by-side fridge freezer.
The coffee station beyond the fridge leads through to the downstairs WC.
At the other end of the kitchen, the boot area and larder have double doors to the garden which are perfect for indoor / outdoor living on summer days.
The snug, just beyond the kitchen, has a four meter long built in sofa and 55" TV (as well as another woodburner) for film evenings or general mooching.

First Floor:
Upstairs, the primary bedroom has a superking bed and an ensuite with a rolltop bath and enormous walk in shower. (Sleeps 2)
The second bedroom has a king bed and a small but surprisingly spacious ensuite. (Sleeps 2)
The third bedroom (double bed, sleeps 2) and fourth bedroom (king bed, sleeps 2) share the family shower room at the end of the corridor, which has an even more enormous shower built into the curve of the original stairwell (removed long ago) and a rooflight directly above the showerhead.

The Old Laundry:
What it lacks in size it makes up for in history and charm!

Ground Floor
The main room on the ground floor comprises a small sitting area alongside a dining table and a kitchenette. There is a small sofa for lounging, watching a film or enjoying a glass of wine and while the kitchenette may not suit a three-course meal, it’s perfect for breakfast and lunch or simple dinners (refrigerator with freezer compartment, two burner electric hob and combination microwave/oven/grill).
Also on the ground floor is a shower room, a corridor with coat storage and a vaulted bedroom with a king-size bed, beautiful oak floors and a stable door leading directly into the shared garden.

First Floor
The second bedroom is upstairs above the sitting room with two single beds as well as another small sitting area.

The walled courtyard garden is shared between the house and the cottage and has a dining terrace with a table that can expand to seat 12. There is further seating in the middle of the circular raised veg bed, as well as a few comfortable chairs dotted about and a gas BBQ. There is parking for two cars in the gravel area to the left of the house and further parking is available on the lane opposite, along the church wall.

There is off-street parking available for two cars, and additional on-street parking can be found nearby. Bridge House has a Type 2, EV charging point available to use on request.

Location Information

Bridge House & The Old Laundry is situated in a rural village in Broadwell near Lechlade and Burford. It provides the perfect base in the heart of the Cotswolds from which to explore the wider area.


As a party of 13 (including 3 children under 10) and a dog the layout of this house and the annex suited us perfectly. It is in a very peaceful location with plenty of walks on the doorstep and the local pub about a mile away but you need a car to get to shops etc. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting to visit the Cotswolds and thank the owners for their extremely speedy response to our contact.
The house was absolutely beautiful and catered for all our needs. It was large enough for 12 of us. The tasteful decor was amazing. The location was peaceful with lovely country walks on your doorstep. Can't wait to book again.
Bridge House & The Old Laundry is a rural idyll. It is a peaceful retreat perfect to experience some extraordinarily beautiful walks from!!
