Smuggsbarn Cottage is a beautifully styled Grade II listed Cotswold holiday cottage which sleeps 6+2 guests, in three comfortable bedrooms, with the +2 option being a double sofa bed in the snug, with two contemporary bathrooms. This cottage has been tastefully renovated to blend the charming late 18th century original features of the English beech wooden beams and striking Cotswold stone inglenook fireplace, with modern decor and amenities. With ample living space downstairs, including the cosy snug and abundant storage in both the kitchen and the boot room, Smuggsbarn Cottage is a real home away from home with plenty of space for the whole group to relax. Every detail has been thoughtfully considered, down to a dog showering area for those muddy walks, creating a wonderful property for groups to escape to the country with your four legged friend!

Location Information

With much of Chedworth being deemed a conservation area, many of the houses are traditional Cotswold stone cottage style homes, allowing the village to retain its charm. This chocolate box style village benefits from a friendly pub, The Seven Tuns Inn, offering a delicious menu. The village is located on the steep side of a valley along the tributary of the River Coln. This wonderful location makes Chedworth ideal for those wanting to explore the countryside with multiple footpaths in and around the area including the Macmillan Way and the Monarch's Way. One of our favourites is a snippet of the Macmillan Way to the nearby Chedworth Roman Villa, managed by the National Trust, then heading on through Chedworth woods before returning back to the village.
For your shopping essentials, there is a Waitrose in Cirencester. Most larger supermarkets do offer delivery to this area.
Chedworth sits in South Cotswolds, just eight miles from Cirencester and 11 miles from Cheltenham. The much-loved towns of Stroud, Northleach and Withington are also within easy reach. As are the popular attractions of Cerney House, Sherbourne Park Estate and the village of Bibury.
