A 1930’s, 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom cottage, with a refined, classic feel, in the heart of Coln St Aldwyns, one of the Cotswolds' prettiest hidden villages. It has been recently modernised and is immaculately decorated and maintained, sleeping 4 across a spacious double bedroom and a large twin room. Benefitting from front and rear gardens with an outdoor entertaining area and easy, free parking, this property is ideal for 2 couples or a young family. Accepts up to 2 well-behaved dogs (£30 per dog).

>> CLEANING PROTOCOL: Every owner of a property listed with Bolthole Retreats has undertaken to implement a series of additional cleaning measures in order to minimise the risk of infection between stays. Housekeepers have been instructed to follow a 30-point guide which involves cleaning first to remove germs and other impurities, and then disinfecting to kills germs with chemicals while wearing disposable gloves and facemasks. All laundry will be washed using a bleach or other disinfectant-based laundry detergent containing active oxygen bleach at a temperature of at least 60 degrees. At least one pot of hand sanitiser, and for the larger properties 2 or 3 pots, will be provided. Implementing these measures will necessarily result in an increase in the time taken to undertake a clean. Therefore, we ask that guests respect the advertised check-in and check-out times, and we will regrettably be unable to agree to any exceptions.

THE SPACE>> One of the undiscovered Cotswold villages, Coln St Aldwyns will delight anyone who wants to be immersed in the Cotswold countryside, have a memorable Cotswold experience, yet avoid the hustle and bustle of the Cotswolds’ tourist hot spots. As with most Cotswold villages, Coln (as the locals call it) is steeped in history, with a perfectly maintained, 13th-century Norman church and 17th-century coaching inn, the New Inn (due to re-open early Spring 2019). As you stroll around the village, you’ll find endless photo opportunities to capture beautiful, honey-coloured, Cotswold limestone cottages backed by pastoral, rolling countryside.

Meadow View 2 is an immaculately decorated and maintained, bright and airy cottage, with lots of pretty windows affording views on all sides, sweeping across the Williamstrip and Hatherop Estates - acres of meadow, parkland and farmland - and the undulating Coln Valley and rushing waters of the River Coln.

Step out of the front door and you’re straight into miles and miles of walking, including an idyllic 4- or 6-mile route to Bibury (famed for its Arlington Row cottages, possibly the most photographed tourist location in the Cotswolds!), where you can have a bite to eat at The Swan, The Catherine Wheel or in the café at Bibury Trout Farm.

If you’re staying with littles one, simply cross the road to a safe, secure and immaculate adventure playground, complete with picnic tables and benches. Then wander downhill to the River Coln, flanked by rolling hills that are home to flocks of sheep and herds of cows – a truly bucolic scene. If you’re lucky enough to catch a sunset, it’ll be one of the most beautiful you’re ever likely to see!

Head back up the road to the Coln Community Shop for a cuppa and a slice of some of the tastiest cake in the Cotswolds!

At the end of your day exploring the Cotswolds, return to Meadow View 2 and Coln St Aldwyns, far from the madding crowds, with easy parking, peace and quiet and an immaculate and cosy home-from-home.

Rear Entrance Hall

To the right…


Dual-flush toilet with handbasin. (The cottage’s water stop cock and fuse box is located here.)

Through inner door to...


Stepping through the cottage’s side door, you’ll enter the well-equipped kitchen, overlooking the large back garden, with the tall trees of Williamstrip Park peeking over the drystone wall. Decorated in a classic farmhouse style with oak worktops, French-grey wall tiles and wooden flooring, in here you’ll find all you need for a self-catered stay, including an electric hob and oven, dishwasher, microwave, integrated fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster and lots of immaculate cupboards with all the crockery and utensils you’ll need.

Through to...

Dining Room

The double-aspect, bright and airy dining room has a light-oak dining table to seat 5 comfortably (plus a highchair), and matching side board. Meadow View 2’s dining room is the perfect space to enjoy a relaxed breakfast, light lunch or a special evening supper.

On through to...

Front Hallway

Here you’ll find the front door (the key to this door is hanging on the wall next to the door), hooks for coats and hats, a large coir floor mat (ideal for muddy shoes and boots), the entrance into the living room and the staircase (with handrail) leading upstairs.

Straight ahead to…

The Living Room

Both cosy and bright, the sitting room has views to the cottage’s front and rear gardens. Comfortably seating 4 guests on 2 deep, curvy sofas the room is elegant and welcoming’ with William-Morris-style curtains and cushions adding elegance yet maintaining the Cotswold-cottage ambiance. You’ll also find a light-oak coffee table, blanket box, BT router, Samsung TV and dimmable lighting to help create a cosy retreat.

Back to staircase…


Well-lit, carpeted staircase with handrail up to…


At the top of the stairs is a light-oak desk positioned so that you can look out over the back garden and Williamstrip Estate as you sit and gaze through the window. You’ll find 2 double power points, making this an ideal spot for connecting devices, working on a laptop, reading or relaxing.

Off the landing…

Bedroom One

Overlooking the front of the house is Bedroom 1, the master bedroom, with its inviting, king-size bed and oak headboard; large, 3-door wardrobe (with plenty of covered hangers); bedside chest of drawers and lamps; full-length mirror; a dressing table (with Remington hairdryer), stool and mirror; dimmable lighting; and space for a baby’s travel cot (should you need one). You’ll also find a fitted cupboard housing the water heater and immersion tank. The large window, with its wide window sills, provides a beautiful frame for views of Coln St Aldwyns and the valley beyond.

Back to landing and across to…

Bedroom Two

A pretty, brightly lit twin dual-aspect bedroom with windows providing beautiful views over the cottage’s front and rear gardens and out towards the wider Cotswold countryside. This twin room has 2 sink-in single beds, a large oak wardrobe (with covered hangers) and an oak dressing table with stool and mirror. With accents of sunny yellow, this room is a very pretty second bedroom that couples or children will enjoy.

Family Bathroom

The cottage’s family bathroom sits off the landing, at the rear of the house, next to Bedroom 1, yet still convenient for Bedroom 2. Polished limestone tiling, wood-effect flooring and a window to the rear (with Venetian-style blind for privacy) creates a lovely space to relax in. With a large, walk-in Grohe shower, full-size bath with mixer taps, heated towel rail, dual-flush toilet, and sink with large mirror, plus a small selection of toiletries, there’s everything here you’ll need for your stay.


Meadow View 2 is framed by a lawn area to its front and large private garden to its rear, affording it a wonderful feeling of privacy. A wooden fence separates Meadow View 2 from the neighbouring Meadow View. It’s in the back garden where the cottages’ magic really comes alive, thanks to the adjoining Williamstrip Park, making the garden feel larger than it is thanks to the adjacent, sweeping countryside views. The cottage has an elevated patio area with garden table and chairs, making it perfect for al fresco sundowners after a busy day exploring the Cotswolds. (Please note: patio furniture will be placed outside from mid-Spring.)

To the side of the cottage is a large Utility Room housing the Hotpoint washer/dryer. This is also the perfect space to securely store walking gear, bicycles or a pushchair.

Servicios y zonas comunes
Guests have access to the entire cottage and its gardens.

Otros aspectos destacables
The entrance path from the road has a short (approximately two metre), steep section. However, there is a handrail to aid guests with reduced mobility. The interior staircase has a full-length handrail. Guests with small children should take note that the front garden is not fully enclosed.

Meadow View 2 is the smaller, semi-detached partner to Meadow View (sleeps 6). Together they share an entrance path and front garden, but each has a private rear garden that’s laid to lawn with patio areas fully equipped with outdoor seating and individual BBQs. The 2 cottages can be rented individually (4+1; 6+1) or together, making it a great venue for family gatherings or friends’ reunions.

Coln Saint Aldwyns, Inglaterra, Reino Unido


Nestling in the Coln Valley, Coln St Aldwyns is a traditional estate village made up of pretty cottages and houses in the Cotswold tradition. The main street starts at the valley river bed, cuts up through the heart of the village and ends at the central focal point which is a large horse chestnut tree planted on a raised circle of grass. It boasts a Norman Church and is one of the most unspoilt villages in the area, the parish being within a Conservation Area and Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. 

Coln St Aldwyns is 3 miles from Bibury and Fairford and 9 miles from Cirencester. The village boasts a 13th centuary church, a popular 17th century pub – The New Inn at Coln, a village shop and post office and many beautiful walks in and around the area.

Coln Community Shop is in the centre of the village, 2-minutes’ walk from Meadow View 2. Here you’ll find a wide range of provisions, a café, Post Office, off-license, laundry service and lots of local information. There’s even a small cinema in the village (details at the shop) and a bus service (one bus per day) to Fairford and Cirencester, should you want a car-free day trip.

The closest supermarkets are in Cirencester, a 20-minute drive from Meadow View 2. Cirencester has a well-equipped Waitrose and Tesco Extra, as well as an M&S Simply Food, ALDI and Lidl. Ocado, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Morrisons all deliver to Meadow View 2. There is a Coop Food in Fairford (GL7 4AB) just 10 minutes’ drive from the cottage.

There are 2 pubs in walking distance of Meadow View 2: The New Inn, a beautiful 17th-century coaching inn with restaurant, bar and gardens, and The Keepers’ Arms in the neighbouring village of Quenington - an award-winning pub, locally famed for featuring in the Camra Good Beer Guide since 2011. (Note: The New Inn is due to re-open in the Spring of 2019 following refurbishment.)

Fishing on the Williamstrip Estate can be organised during your stay. This is a rare opportunity to have an exceptional day’s fishing on the Broadwater of the beautiful River Coln in Coln St Aldwyns. Day Ticket: £84 per rod; limit two rods per day. Book through The Water Bailiff

Cirencester is the closest major town with lots to see and do. See the ‘A Visitor’s Guide to Cirencester’ (below) for more details of amenities there, and Burford (‘Gateway’ to the Cotswolds) is just 15 minutes’ drive.
