Overlooking the village green in Lower Slaughter, Gloucestershire, is River Cottage, a beautiful Cotswolds village home which has undergone extensive restoration and extension during recent years.

With three bedrooms and three reception rooms, River Cottage represents the perfect country home for a small family. Constructed out of Cotswolds stone, it is a typical cottage for the area, and the renovation programme has been sympathetic and thorough, leaving many period features including open fireplaces with fine stone chimney pieces, flagstone floors, and original timberwork. Outside is a beautifully maintained and fully landscaped walled garden.

The property overlooks the village green and part of the Windrush River. Lower Slaughter is on of the prettiest and most peaceful villages in the Windrush Valley, which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Stow-on-the-Wold, a small but bustling market town, is situated just four miles away, and provides for most everyday shopping needs, while Cheltenham is just 16 miles away.

The nearest mainline station is located eight miles away in Kingham, ?England?s favourite village? as chosen by Country Life last year. The direct service to London Paddington takes around one hour and fifteen minutes.
