The Old Laundry at Bridge Cottage is a charming stone cottage which is more than 300 years old and what it lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in history and charm! Comprising of a cosy living area, kitchenette, shower room and two bedrooms, this recently refurbished property features Fired Earth and Lefroy Brooks alongside exposed beams and flagstone floors. This delightful dog friendly holiday cottage, located on the border of Broadwell and Kencot, set across the road from a Grade II listed Norman church, it is quintessentially Cotswolds, with as many horses trotting down the road as cars on most days.

To make for a comfortable setting in the living area, this two-bedroom property with one king size bedroom and a twin bedroom can sleep up to two guests. Located in Broadwell near Burford, The Old Laundry is a wonderful retreat for friends and family, or ideal for a romantic getaway. The accommodation is laid out as follows:

Ground Floor

The cosy main room on the ground floor includes a small sitting area alongside a dining table and 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. There is a refrigerator with freezer compartment, two burner electric hob and combination microwave/oven/grill, toaster, kettle and filtered coffee machine. The corridor also provides coat storage.

Master Bedroom (Sleeps 2)
A vaulted bedroom with a king-size bed, side tables, chest of drawers, beautiful oak floors and a stable door leading directly into the shared garden.

Shower Room
Walk-in-shower, basin and loo.

First Floor

Bedroom Two (Sleeps 2)
The second bedroom is upstairs above the sitting room with two single beds as well as another small sitting area.

The walled garden is shared with the owners of the main house and their two dogs. There is a small garden to the side of the house with a blue table and four chairs amongst the raised vegetable beds, which is available exclusively for guests of The Old Laundry to use.

Free on-street parking is available nearby.

We recently spent a long weekend at the Old Laundry. What an excellent find! The cottage was small but beautifully decorated in a traditional Cotswold village. There are excellent walks all around, even from your front door. The host, Eric, was delightful and extremely informative of the local area. We look forward to returning soon.

Thank you for your excellent review Natalie! We are delighted to hear you had a great stay and we look forward to welcoming you back to The Old Laundry again soon.
