Country houses for sale

A traditional stone house for sale with mature gardens, an adjoining cottage — and eight acres of glorious Cotswold countryside to call your own

Just three miles from Cirencester, Dower House offers plenty of space to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Annunciata Elwes takes a look.

A perfect Cotswold-stone house that seems quite magical on the approach through the mature trees of its eight-acre grounds, the Dower House at Daglingworth village, in the valley of the River Dunt, about 10 minutes from Cirencester, has been beautifully modernised.

Sat amongst eight acres of gardens, paddock and grounds, the property is currently on the market via Knight Frank at a guide price of £2.7 million.

There are eight bedrooms in total, including two in an adjoining cottage approached via a separate drive, a sizeable home office, indoor swimming pool, tennis court, vegetable garden, small stable block and three large paddocks currently grazed by sheep.

The cottage, which also has a private garden, could either be connected fully to the main house (subject to permissions) or let as a separate property.
