Yarrow’s eclectic design and attention to detail offers a different take on the typical thatched Cotswolds holiday cottage. Sleeping up to four people in two double bedrooms, the two-storey self-catered property is a dream destination for couples or a small family.
Upstairs, you’ll find the master bedroom with a super-king custom-built bed and the exposed wooden beams of a traditional English country cottage. The second bedroom also has a bespoke bed for two and a large bathroom with a giant copper roll top bathtub — a particularly welcome way to relax after a day of walking or a week of working.
Downstairs you will find a well-furnished living room with a bespoke corner snug seat and sofas opposite the log burning stove. There room feels exotic yet cosy thanks to its wooden walls, sliding doors, Balinese furniture and bold paintings, which all ensure the interior is as beautiful as the rolling hills outside.
The dining room, meanwhile, has seating for six is the ideal setting for an intimate dinner party, surrounded by candles and creative lighting. And the kitchen makes eating and drinking a pleasure, thanks to its fully equipped with a range cooker, Nespresso coffee machine and complimentary spirits bar. The kitchen back door opens onto a small garden space with a table and chairs—the ideal spot for a country breakfast or drinks in the sun.

Things to do nearby
Food & Drink
In a cottage this pretty, we only suggest leaving home for the very best restaurants and pubs. Establishments that merit a journey include The Chequers Pub, which is moments away from Yarrow. While for brunch and local farm produce, there is nowhere better than Daylesford Farm.
Immerse yourself in the grandeur of Blenheim Palace, sip on local ales at Horton Nook Brewery and get up close and personal with the lions at the Cotswolds Wildlife Park. The Haybarn Spa at Daylesford farm is particularly lovely for those in need of a spot of pampering.
