Michaelmas Cottage is how you would imagine a quintessential English country cottage. Situated in the heart of The Cotswolds (an area of outstanding natural beauty) amongst rolling hills and fields with tumbling roses and honeysuckle growing from the cottage's honey coloured stone walls, if you are looking for peace and quiet, long walks and coming back to a the comforts of a well-equipped and cosy cottage with inglenook fireplaces and a woodburner; then put simply Michaelmas is for you.

Annað til að hafa í huga

1. Mind your heads and duck - please mind your heads as there are many low beams and doorways in the cottage especially if any of you are tall. Particularly watch the doorway and duck between the kitchen and the dining room and also the white beam on the 2nd floor landing sloping outside the single bedroom. Please also duck under both arched ends of the stone passageway leading to Michaelmas. They are very low.

2. Kitchen door - to unlock the kitchen door lift up the door handle and then turn the key.

3. Showers' control - both shower units are power showers. I've had a few problems with guests pulling the shower controls outwards and breaking them. To work the showers you simply need to turn the controls. Please do not pull them. Therefore, to turn on the water you turn the metal lever and to adjust the temperature you twist the circular control.

4. Dogs - if you have dogs please be respectful to other guests and to us (Michaelmas is our family cottage too) and please do not let your dog foul in the garden.

5. Towels/bed linen - All the beds will be made-up for you when you arrive. I also provide towels for our overseas' guests which will be left in the bathrooms for you, or on your beds. However, if you're not coming from abroad, whilst we do provide bed linen we do not provide towels. Even though you may see towels (and bed linen) left on the shelves in the boiler cupboard in the first floor bathroom, please kindly do not use. These are our own bed linen and towels for our own use when we come up to the cottage.

6. Boots - we remove our wellington boots or walking boots outside the kitchen door and then store them in the stone inglenook fireplace in the dining room. We strongly suggest you do the same as it stops mud and wet going all over the floors/carpets.

7. Lounge - you will notice that the red sofa with its back to the large radiator is pulled a few inches away from the radiator. This is for a reason. During the colder months, please do not push it back right against the radiator simply because you will just block all the heat coming out.

8. No smoking - Please note Michaelmas is a no smoking cottage. Smoking is absolutely prohibited.

9. Leaving the cottage - Please kindly leave the cottage respectfully, clean and tidy with your rubbish deposited in bin liners in the dark grey wheelie bin.

Moreton-in-Marsh, Bretland

Dear Guests,
Welcome to Michaelmas Cottage.
I hope your stay is comfortable, enjoyable and you experience the beautiful countryside, villages and historic sites here in the Cotswolds.
The Cottage
• There are lots of books dotted around the cottage and a selection of DVD’s are kept in the TV cupboard for you to enjoy. (Please do not take away any books or DVD’s with you but please leave them for us and other guests to enjoy).
• There are also tourist information leaflets in a purple plastic wallet in the lounge together with some tourist guides for local places of interest.
• Not least because Michaelmas is our family cottage before you vacate, please leave the cottage in a clean, tidy and respectful condition with your rubbish bagged-up in the black bin liners (bin liners are in the bottom drawer by the kitchen door) and put in the grey wheelie bin under the apple tree.
• If you have an urgent questions please contact my housekeeper, Ella on 07955 662983 or for my international guests 00 44 7955 662983.
Public Footpaths and Walking
• A good walk - If you fancy a good walk, walk back up the farm track you drove down, so you're back on the main village road. Cross over and walk down the road immediately opposite, past Owl Cottage on your left and then Sage Cottage. Carry on down the road and then follow the road around to the right just past Smithy Cottage on your left. Immediately after you’ve passed Smithy Cottage you'll see a public footpath sign, called "The Heart of England Way". (From Michaelmas to Smithy Cottage it's about a 2 mins’ walk; so very close). The Heart of England Way walk takes you across some stunning countryside past the stately home, Seizencote to the beautiful neighbouring village of Longborough, (which has a pub called The Coach and Horses) to quench your thirst or appetite. The walk from Michaelmas to Longborough there and back is about 6 miles.
Local Pubs for good food
• The Horse & Groom pub and restaurant (about a 5 mins’ walk up the hill from Michaelmas) in Bourton-on-the-Hill. Telephone number 01386 700413. Please note that the pub is closed on Sunday evenings. If you go up to the pub during Autumn/Winter please take a torch as the main street doesn’t have lights. There is a wind-up torch in the cupboard under the stairs.

• Good pubs just a short drive from the cottage which I’d recommend are:

The Ebrington Arms in Ebrington; 01386 593223 (full of character and good local food)

The Wild Rabbit in the pretty village of Kingham - 01608 658389. Again, fantastic food and a great ambience.

The Kingham Plough, again in Kingham -

The Porch House – Stow-on-the-Wold

The Mount Inn – Stanton – there is a beautiful (but very steep) walk along The Cotswold Way from Stanton up the hill to the top which gives you amazing views West across the valley towards the Malvern Hills. We did the walk (as I said not for the faint hearted) the other day, finished it at The Mount Inn and had a fantastic meal there. The Mount Inn also has fantastic views from its garden terrace. Stanton is also one of the prettiest villages in The Cotswolds. My advice would be to combine visits to nearby Broadway and Stanton in one day. Stanton in the morning with a walk and pub lunch at The Mount Inn, then into Broadway in the afternoon for a leisurely afternoon.

The Churchill Arms, Paxford – again a very good gastro pub. Paxford is about 10 mins’ away by car from Michaelmas.

Things to Do and Local Places of Interest
• The renowned Batsford Arboretum is on your doorstep. (You will see the entrance on the right hand side of the A44 as you come up the hill to Bourton-on-the –Hill from Moreton-in-Marsh). This is well worth a visit and you may want to take a look at the official website before you arrive. It includes a 55 acre garden (including approximately 1,500 species of plants) which is absolutely stunning, a falconry (we’ve been to the falconry display and loved it), a garden centre and a very good cafe serving home cooked food and a wonderful variety of freshly baked cakes. In the summer months you can sit out on a large decked area overlooking the garden centre. Batsford House which you will see when you walk around the gardens is also where the infamous six Mitford sisters (the daughters of Lord Resedale) grew up in the early 1900’s.

• As well as Moreton-in-Marsh, Longborough and Blockley, if you have time you may want to consider visits to the nearby quaint and quintessentially Cotsolds’ villages of Stow (on –the-Wold), Bourton- on- the Water, Upper Slaughter, Lower Slaughter and Broadway. I suggest you avoid Bourton-on-the-Water at weekends though as it gets very busy and crowded. It’s just full of coach parties.

• The villages of Broadway, Lower Slaughter and Upper Slaughter, Stanton and Snows Hill are in my opinion an absolute must. (To get to Broadway you just turn right out of the farm track and just follow the A44 up the hill. You basically stay on the A44 and follow the signs for Broadway, down the very steep Fish Hill and at the bottom of the hill take the left hand turn at the roundabout into Broadway. It’s about a 20 minute drive. For The Slaughters, turn left out of the farm track, down the A44 to Moreton-in-Marsh. At the roundabout turn right and then keep going straight past Stow-on-the Wold until you see The Slaughters sign-posted on the right. Again, it’s about a 20 mins’ drive). Park in Lower Slaughter, walk through the village alongside the stream to the old water mill and then behind the mill is a public footpath across beautiful countryside, alongside the stream to Upper Slaughter. As you approach Upper Slaughter on your left hand side you’ll see lawns sloping down to the stream from an old manor house. This is Lords of the Manor Hotel and the hotel does a really good English afternoon tea, (tea, coffee, cakes, scones etc), which during the summer you can enjoy on the lawn. Do walk around the whole of Upper Slaughter though because it’s stunning. Go up the hill from Lords of the Manor Hotel and then branch right which will take you down a hill to where the stream cuts through the valley surrounded by beautiful stone cottages. This scene is often pictured on the front of magazines.

• In Bourton-on-the Hill itself you also have Bourton House whose gardens are open to the public on specified days of the week. It’s literally 3 mins’ walk from the cottage. It’s not a huge garden but it’s a nice way to spend a couple of hours and they have a little café selling tea, coffee and cakes too.

• Also down the A44 towards Moreton-in-Marsh is the entrance to Seizencote (on the other side of the road from the entrance to the Batsford Arboretum) the stately home I’ve mentioned above. You can visit the house and the gardens.

• Do try and visit Chastleton House, just a few miles away in Chastleton which was one of the locations for the recent and acclaimed BBC adaptation of the Booker Prize winning novel “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantel set during the reign of King Henry VIII. This is such an interesting property as it’s never been updated since it was built in 1607. So you really get a feel of how they lived then. We went there last summer and found it absolutely fascinating.

• Moreton in Marsh - Tuesday is market day in Moreton-in-Marsh and there is also a large supermarket (Budgen) in Moreton-in-Marsh. Turn left out of the farm track, go down the A44 to Moreton-in-Marsh, turn left at the roundabout into the main street and it’s about 200 metres along the high street on the right (after the main parade of shops peter out). There is ample car parking at Budgen. I also recommend the butcher’s in Moreton-in-Marsh for good quality meat, vegetables and freshly made bread. (R & D Walker Ltd t/a Checketts, 24 High Street, Moreton-in-Marsh).

• Daylesford Organic Farm and Shop – just outside Kingham - For those of you who are into healthy eating and organic food, Daylesford Organic Farm and Shop is very near; just outside Kingham. Definitely worth a visit.

Heating and appliances
• You will find instructions for electrical items, the central heating and the wood burning stove in the lounge in the Guest Folder referred to above. There is also a hairdryer in one of the drawers in the dressing table in the top bedroom.

• Wi-fi is available and the details are: Wireless network name: BTHomeHub2-SMJK. Wireless key c99f4347a4. Admin password 84CPSCYZ.
• When you have filled your bin bag (black bins bags are in the bottom drawer by the kitchen door) please tie-up and take them to the grey wheelie bin under the apple tree. Any pure food waste can go straight in the green wheelie bin.
• If you turn right out of the farm track and drive up the hill past the Horse and Groom there is a petrol station on the left (about 1 minute after the Horse & Groom).
• If you turn left out of the farm track, go down the A44 into Moreton-in-Marsh and take a right at the first roundabout that takes you onto the Fosse Way. There’s a petrol station on the right hand side about 3 minutes down that road.

Finally, sit back, relax and please enjoy the peace and quiet of Michaelmas.
With Kind Regards,
Dear Guests,
Welcome to Michaelmas Cottage.
I hope your stay is comfortable, enjoyable and you experience the beautiful countryside, villages and historic sites here in the Cotswolds.
