The House and Gardens

The House

Dating from the mid-17th century, Swan House is a beautifully furnished Grade II listed country house in a charming secret village. Sleeping 12, it is the very best Gold Award 5-Star self-catering holiday cottage accommodation.

Hidden away on a no-through road, the house is set in two acres of well tended gardens, with its own spring-fed trout lake and river frontage. The Coln Valley is reputedly the loveliest in the Cotswolds and Winson is the most exclusive village in it. With credentials such as these, Swan House can genuinely claim to be the most luxuriously furnished holiday home in the prettiest valley in the Cotswolds.

The Gardens

The gardens, extending to two acres, are idyllic, with a formal long herbaceous border, wild garden, orchard, trout lake and a river frontage.

There is a large terrace for informal summer dining and a gas-fired barbeque. Sitting in the hammock, listening to the river bubble by, is guaranteed to diminish stress!

The setting of the house is a walkers’ paradise, with countless local walks and longer walks to lovely local pubs. Bicycles are also available and, for the less energetic, there are fly-fishing rods for use in the lake.
