1. The romantic bolthole in ancient woods
Sure this is your classic Cotswold-stone cottage, but beyond that (and that's good in itself) the location is prime walking territory. You see, this is right in the heart of Owlpen Valley. Full of woodlands, lush green fields and a very fancy manor house that's well worth a visit. And after you’ve got your walking boots nice and muddy? Settle in your own littler manor house of sorts, in front of the wood-burning stove. Or out on the patio. Lovely stuff.
