This gorgeous detached cottage on the edge of the pretty Cotswold market town of Fairford, a short stroll to a selection of pubs and the market square for restaurants, shops and Lynwood’s, the best barista in the Cotswolds! The town and surrounding area is crisscrossed with many footpaths, to enjoy lovely walks in the Cotswold countryside and to explore the nearby Cotswold water park lakes. The nearby villages of Eastleach, Bibury, Hatherop, Quenington, Coln St.Aldwyns and a wealth of other beautiful Cotswold villages offering wonderful scenery and fantastic pubs and restaurants, all within a short walk, cycle or drive.

The town sits on a pretty stretch of the River Coln and is famous for its parish church of St Mary’s, which is perhaps the finest ‘wool church’ in the country – being the only church with a complete set of 28 medieval stained glass windows telling the story of the Bible.

Every Wednesday the market square is busy with a traditional market, and a continental market twice a year and a magical Christmas market on the first Friday of December.

For three days every year RAF Fairford hosts the world’s largest military air show – the Royal International Air Tattoo – book early as tickets sell out quickly.

Location Information

Fairford sits on the river Coln in the heart of the Cotswolds. The beautiful church of St. Mary’s is famed for having the only full set medieval stained glass windows. Market towns of Lechlade and the Roman capital of the Cotswolds, Cirencester, are in easy striking distance.


My wife and I are of a certain vintage and have stayed in many cottages up and down the country, Wood Cottage is by far the best. Although small, it was perfect for us, decorated to a high standard throughout. Holiday lets are usually furnished and decorated with the emphasis on low cost, this cottage is quite the opposite with the feel of staying in someone's home. All appliances, crockery, cutlery etc high spec and immaculately clean. The owners have also taken the trouble to explain every appliance in detail and lots of information on pubs, restaurants, walks etc. Good WiFi and we were able to watch Netflix and Amazon on the Smart TV. Location is perfect, a 10min walk from the centre of the village. Could not speak more highly of the cottage or the booking agents - Stay Cotswolds. We'll be back!!

Thank you for your wonderful review. We are delighted to hear that Wood Cottage was perfect for you and your wife's break in the Cotswolds and that you loved the homely feel and the location. We look forward to welcoming you back with StayCotswold again in the future.
