Hillside Cottage B&B
Hillside Cottage dates from the 17th century and still retains many of its original features, including stone mullioned windows, beams, low doorways and inglenook fireplaces. It has two guest bedrooms, a double room on the first floor with an en suite shower room, and a twin room on the second floor with a separate private bathroom. Both rooms have comfortable beds (as our guests frequently remark!), coffee and tea making facilities, and flat screen TVs. (Please note that both rooms have low beams, with clearance under them of 5'10' and 6'.) Breakfast is served in the dining room overlooking the cottage garden.
There are several country pubs nearby serving good food at lunchtime and in the evenings, including the Puesdown Inn (1 mile), the Wheatsheaf (in Northleach 3 miles), the Fossebridge Inn (at Fossebridge 4 miles), and the Seven Tuns (at Chedworth 5 miles). Larger restaurants are to be found in Cheltenham and Cirencester.
The village of Hazleton is within a conservation area in an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), surrounded by traditional farmland, yet is within very easy access of Cheltenham (10 miles) and the Cheltenham Racecourse (15 miles). Cheltenham is famed for its racing calendar, but also hosts a number of festivals throughout the year, including the Jazz, Folk, Music, Science and Literature Festivals. It is an attractive spa town with a good range of shops and restaurants.
The historic market town of Northleach is just 3 miles from Hazleton. It is known for its magnificent 'wool church'. There are several other interesting churches - some of them very small - in the surrounding villages.
Cirencester is about 14 miles away, and also has a beautiful old church. In contrast to this ancient building the Corinium Museum has been recently redesigned to national acclaim, and records the Roman origins of the town. Cirencester also hosts weekly farmers' markets, and crafts and antiques markets in the renovated Corn Hall. The Brewery Arts Centre houses a number of craftsmen's workshops and studios which welcome visitors.
Ramblers and riders will enjoy exploring the numerous footpaths and bridleways that criss cross the countryside around Hazleton. The Cotswold Way National Trail and other long distance footpaths pass nearby, and transport can be arranged for walkers following these routes.
There are several National Trust properties and historic houses within a short drive of Hillside Cottage, including Sudeley Castle, Hidcote Manor, Kiftsgate Court, Snowshill Manor, Sezincote, and Lodge Park. If this is your first visit to the Cotswolds we would be delighted to suggest daily touring itineraries to include these attractions.
