Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

Location Information

The property lies just to the south west of the popular village of Upper Seagry which has a pub within easy walking distance from the house. The nearby village of Great Somerford boasts a further two pubs, post office and village shop. Malmesbury and the local Waitrose lies 4.5 miles to the north and Chippenham with its main line station (London Paddington) lies 6 miles to the south. The cities of Bath and Bristol are also very accessible.


We stayed for two weeks for Christmas and New Year and it was fabulous. The house is gorgeously appointed and decorated, with all amenities for a cozy winter holiday. Family and friends all remarked how beautiful and yet homely the house is, and very convenient for some great pubs for dining plus Waitrose 8 minutes away in Malmesbury. Our dogs enjoyed the enormous garden plus the surrounding fields and woods, and never once did they catch the speedy guinea fowl after which the cottage is named. Thank you Richard and family and Stay Cotswold for our great holiday.

We are thrilled to hear you loved your time in the Cotswolds and particularly your stay at Guinea Farm and Cottage. From us at StayCotswold, and the owners, thank you for choosing to stay and book with us. We hope to welcome you and your guests back one day.
