Why we love it

The charm of the ancient Cotswolds cottage and surrounding hills, the big enclosed garden and a few treats to discover for both dogs and their humans

What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • Snuffling round the enclosed garden, with walls that will keep most dogs in
  • Discovering the treat jar
  • Walks right from the door into quiet countryside

Humans will love

  • Hunkering down together by the woodburner
  • Exploring the prettiest villages in the Cotswolds
  • Picking apples, plums and herbs from the garden

The place

Asphodel Cottage is the sort of calm, dreamlike place where you could spend a few days without really knowing where the time had gone. You could let an afternoon slide by lazing in the cosy lounge, soaking in the big roll top or foraging in the garden for apples, plums and fresh herbs to flavour dinner, and there’s a great dog-friendly pub 20 minutes’ walk away if you don’t fancy cooking at all. The surrounding countryside keeps the casual feel going, with gentle strolls in the Cotswolds and along riverbanks mixed with visits to the peaceful villages of golden stone that the area is famous for.

You should know

  • This is a traditional cottage that isn’t great for anyone with limited mobility. There are steep stairs, an uneven path, low door frames, a 'moat' around the property and low thatch
  • There is no shop in the village but there is a walkable pub
  • The garden walls will hold most dogs, but a determined runner could get free

In the neighbourhood

  • Asphodel is very peaceful and secluded yet also convenient for visiting Cirencester, Tetbury and Prince Charles' Highgrove
  • There are beautiful country walks right from the door, including Thames Head and Monarchs Way, both of which are great for dog walking and not too challenging for humans
  • The Tunnel House Inn is a 20-minute walk away and so dog friendly that some dishes are only available to your four-legged friend
  • There are several award-winning gastro pubs within 10 mins drive, with The Bell at Sapperton a great choice. It’s not only dog, but also horse friendly!
  • Lechlade boat rentals can set you up for a lovely day on the river. They're fine with dogs on the boats, but you’ll know if yours is up for it!
  • Some of the prettiest spots in the Cotswolds are yours to explore, and just wandering the streets is a treat. Stow, Lower Slaughter, Moreton and Bourton, plus cities like Bath and Cheltenham are all within 35 miles
