This spacious two bedroom semi-detached period cottage full of character features is right in the heart of the beautiful, sought after, Cotswold village of Somerford Keynes . It's in a fabulous location, the peaceful village is surrounded by Gloucestershire countryside and the lakes and nature reserves of the Cotswold Water Park. Great for walking, cycling and water sports, but it's only an 8 minute drive to Kemble railway station where you can get to London in as little as 71 minutes, giving you the best of both worlds! This stunning property is very well priced would be ideal as either a primary residence or second home/holiday let.
The vibrant market town of Cirencester, known as the capital of the Cotswolds, is only 5 miles away. Cirencester has a range of independent interior and fashion boutiques, and enough delis, cafes and restaurants to keep any foodie very happy.
For second homers, you could be at your Cotswolds country cottage on a Friday evening enjoying a drink and a meal at the village pub followed by a walk in the Cotswolds countryside on Saturday or pottering around the lovely independent shops in Cirencester. Maybe a trip to the arboretum or to the Beaufort or Cirencester Park Polo club to watch a game of polo, or a pampering day at the Barnsley House Spa. If golf is your thing, a round of golf at Minchinhampton or Cirencester golf club. It's a 10 minute walk to the Cotswold Country Park and Beach if you fancy some water sports or a wander around the lakes or coffee and cake at the cafe. For Sunday, maybe a walk and a roast dinner in a proper country pub.
If you are thinking of using it as a holiday let Sykes holidays have projected a gross income of up to £25, 206 (based on 20 week long bookings and 15 short breaks).
