Pear Tree Cottage
Poulton Village, Cotswolds
Just a stones throw from Bibury, right in the heart of the Cotswolds, Pear Tree Cottage is an idyllic spot to totally unplug and unwind from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It’s easy to spend days at a time indoors with a cup of coffee and a great book, since this wonderful, eco conscious cottage has such a magical sense of relaxation to it.
With organic cotton bedding, eco household products and toiletries and natural fabrics, this much-loved home transports you back to the romance of country living. If you’re looking for a real Cotswolds experience, Pear Tree Cottage certainly delivers.
At the rear of the cottage they have constructed their very own garden spa bathroom from cedar and oak, based on the Japanese onsens that Pear Tree Cottage’s owners absolutely adore, which looks out onto a secluded Japanese inspired courtyard.
This absolute gem of a cottage is a wonderful 400 year old original stone farmhouse full of huge wooden beams, gently curved stone walls and stone mullioned windows. Simply sit back and relax, after cooking up your favourite meals in its fully equipped farmhouse kitchen. Pear Tree Cottage can sleep 4 adults and 1-2 children.
Please be warned, there are some height restrictions (low ceilings and very low door frames) due to the natural age and style of Pear Tree Cottage.
– Door Frames: lowest heights are 5’5′ (main bedroom) / 5’10 (snug) / 5’11 (living room)
– Beams: lowest heights are 5’11’ (living room)
– Spiral Staircase: Pear Tree Cottage has a spiral staircase with limited head height at one point which leads down onto the flagstone floor in the kitchen.
– Children: whilst children are welcome this is on the basis that you acknowledge and accept the inherent risks of staying in a historical building.
The cottage can sleep 4 adults and 1-2 children. Children over age 6 are welcome to stay, do be aware that this is a historical home with lots of uneven surfaces, so please use your own judgement when booking.
You have full use of the whole cottage and garden with sunbeds.
The owners of Pear Tree Cottage kindly ask that all outdoor shoes are taken off at the inner door and left in the shoe rack (you may wish to bring your own indoor slippers). All outdoor coats are left in the entrance porch on the hooks.
There is free parking on the main road directly at the entrance path to the cottage.
There is a local bus service into Cirencester or Fairford just past the village hall which runs once a day in either direction.
