Places to visit



There are many local walks along footpaths and bridleways. See Ordnance Survey maps Explorer OL45 “The Cotswolds”, and Landranger 151 and 163. 

From Cosy Corner, Chastleton Manor (NT) is one of several local destinations easily accessible; approximately 2 miles away by foot – mostly on the flat. From Spring to Autumn home made tea/coffee and cakes are served in the adjacent church to fortify you for the return trip.

From Spa Changing Rooms, there are many local walks which take in the picturesque village of Lower Slaughter, or a circuit of the perimeter of the Abbotswood Estate (which is immediately behind Spa Changing Rooms). There is also a dedicated footpath up the gentle incline to Stow on the Wold (3/4 mile).

Both cottages have local maps, and walking guide books to help you plan your excursion.

Evenlode is on the national cycle routes 442 and 48. The surrounding countryside is ideal for cycling. There are two bicycles at Cosy Corner which you are welcome to use at your own risk. Helmets are available with the bicycles.

A Cotswolds Holiday

What our guests say


Time to book your autumn break in one of our cottages. Both cottages have modern wood burning stoves and offer well equipped accommodation. Relax with a log fire after a day exploring the Cotswolds, either walking the many paths and byways or exploring the Cotswold Towns, taking in the atmosphere of this classic area in the cooler days of Autumn. A short distance from both cottages is Batsford Arboretum where the glorious autumn tree colours can be seen in abundance.

Time to plan your Christmas getaway. What could be more delightful than spending time over the Christmas and New Year period in the Cotswolds. Enjoy one of many walks, explore the Cotswold towns and enjoy the evening in front of a log fire. And then spend Christmas Day or New Years Day in a typical Cotswold cottage.

Explore the individual shops in the typical Cotswolds towns. In the characterful streets you will find those individual gifts which stand out. The owners typically try to find stock which reflects the character of the area and whilst there is a broad range of gifts available, many are not commonly found elsewhere. Book your holiday to try Christmas Shopping in the Cotswolds.
