The Hayloft is a beautiful, well equipped and cosy character cottage situated in the lovely grounds of the owners and is opposite the Plough Inn in Cold Aston, which is itself a very small and very quiet rural hamlet in the Cotswolds. Cold Aston is perfectly situated for exploring all parts of the Cotswolds and combined with The Hayloft makes for a totally relaxing and peaceful place to stay, especially if you're looking to escape the crowds, enjoy the countryside and recharge your batteries. The Hayloft comes with all the creature comforts and equipment that you will need for a really comfortable stay however the only slight negative is that you need to be aware of the low beams in the bedroom (especially when it's dark) as these cannot be avoided however they certainly add to The Hayloft's character!! As this was our first Cotswold's holiday, we have no hesitation in recommending both The Hayloft and Stay Cotwolds to all of our family and friends and we would certainly come back again.

Thank you for your recommendation. The Hayloft is a beautiful, comfortable apartment and perfectly located for visiting the Cotswolds. We are really pleased to hear that you would like to come back again and look forward to welcoming you back to the Cotswolds
