Culls Cottage is located in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a listed building dating from 1670. It has been lovingly restored to retain all of its character and brought bang up to date with contemporary luxuries.
The flagstone floors, oak beams and inglenook fireplace exude old world charm, while stylish furnishings, original artworks and modern conveniences such as underfloor heating make it a welcoming and relaxing place to be.
Women and Home magazine said 'Culls is a stylish old charmer, with its roots in the 17th century. Stand by for a 'group gasp', as you walk into the stone-floored living room. Bathed in bright light until evening, it's the perfect place to catch up over a glass of something sparkly.'
Culls Cottage sits in the original part of the ancient village of Southrop and was originally home to the village cobbler - Mr Cull.
Culls comprises a lounge, kitchen / dining room, snug and utility room and can sleep up to six guests in three double bedrooms, one of which is downstairs (with an en-suite toilet and shower wet room nearby).
The lounge comfortably seats six with a 4K television and sound bar. Enjoy the Bose iPod dock, digital radio or Instagram your holiday pictures with the complimentary WiFi
You will want for nothing in our kitchens, which are equipped for the keenest chef: Global knives, White China, a range of cookery books and glasses for all drinks from Champagne to G&T. For coffee lovers there is an espresso machine. You can cook up a storm with local produce purchased from one of our nearby markets or farm shops such as Daylesford.
The master bedroom with king-size bed, overlooks the rear garden.
The upstairs bathroom is somewhere to linger with a drenching walk in shower, double ended bath and indulgent toiletries, giving it a spa-like feel.
We like to welcome everyone and if you are travelling with little ones we can supply (free of charge) cots, highchairs, baby bath and stair gates and we have a tiny tots box of toys.
The Cotswolds are superb whatever the season and our luxury cottage is equipped for all weathers; the roaring fire, woollen throws and goose down duvets (non allergenic bedding is also available) will keep you toasty in winter and our stunning garden has numerous places to sit and relax and is a haven in summer. The large 1/4 acre garden is a special place to enjoy a barbecue or evening drink.
There is off street parking for up to four cars at the rear of Culls and more parking on the village roadside with no restrictions.
Watch the red kites soar over the cottage during the day or look up at the Milky Way stars at night, while the owls hoot to one another. You may never want to leave the cottage.
If you do decide to venture out however, you could take a walk over the fields, enjoying the wildlife, ancient churches and have refreshment at picturesque nearby Eastleach or Fairford. Try cycling our lush lanes; you can hire cycles nearby and the peddling is easy over the gently rolling countryside that surrounds Culls.
