Location Information

Railway Cottage is situated in the market town of Lechlade-on-Thames, a vibrant town home to a number of pubs, restaurants and tearooms. With the River Thames on its doorstep, you can pick up the Thames Path to enjoy a scenic walk, or perhaps rent a boat or canoe and enjoy the countryside from the water itself.
For your shopping essentials, there are supermarkets and smaller retailers in Lechlade-on-Thames.
Lechlade-on-Thames is perfectly placed for exploring the many picturesque towns and villages of the Cotswolds such as Cirencester, Burford, Bibury and Bourton-on-the-Water.


As 3 ladies who walk together regularly we wanted a comfortable base to walk some of the Thames path. The cottage fitted the bill perfectly. It was centrally located within easy walking distance to pubs and shops. The kitchen was very well equipped with a huge range cooker. The lounge was cosy and warm, and the bedrooms had very inviting plump duvets and pillows! The cottage had the feel of a real home from home not a rental property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it .

Jane, thank you for your glowing review. We are so thrilled to hear you and your guests enjoyed your stay and the cottage. We hope to welcome you again to enjoy more walks across the Cotswolds.

- StayCotswold, 13 April 2022

The cottage was spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The location was good as it is near most local attractions.
A family holiday with 5 adults and 2 pooches. The cottage felt a bit more like staying in someone’s house rather than a holiday home. There were lots of pieces around the property that showed that someone is obviously a keen baker, cooks and likes plants. A bonus as a family were the three double bedrooms with immaculate bedding, the large dining table in the kitchen and the enclosed garden. An extra bonus would be to have a mirror in each bedroom by an electric socket. The property is based on a very busy main road and the traffic noise was noticeable while sleeping in the two front bedrooms. The cottage is located in a central point to be able to travel to neighbouring villages and a walk along the river.

Many thanks for your feedback Caroline. Railway Cottage is a family home perfect for those that like to feel a sense of home from home, the owner does enjoy baking and hopes those that stay in the property will enjoy whiling away the hours in the pursuit of the perfect loaf of bread!The location, whilst very central, does allow for easy access to all the wonderful surrounding delights of the Cotswolds.We hope to see you again soon!
