Originally a 16th Century bakery, Wishbone is a period Cotswold stone cottage in a row of terraced limestone properties on Milton Street in the pretty market town of Fairford, which is situated in the beautiful Coln Valley and the Cotswold Water Park
Wishbone is a very traditional Cotswold stone cottage in a row of terraced limestone property in Gloucestershire...
but tradition stops there because Wishbone has been completely renovated in a current contemporary style retaining the old Cotswold cottage charm but blended with modern colour and current technology such as free wireless internet, constant hot water and central heating
In the sitting room is a wooden floor with a rug for your comfort, a wood burner, with wood provided should you wish to light fires during your stay. There is a leather sofa, leather armchair and 2 individual chairs, good lighting with plenty of lamps, soft throws and lots of cushions. A digital TV with Freeview Television channels, iPod dock with radio, DVD player, books, DVD's, board games and toys
The kitchen has the original flagstone floor and is very well equipped with a large 6 burner range style cooker, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave, toaster and many pots, pans and cooking utensils. A good selection of crockery and glassware, a washing machine and tumble dryer, along with an iron and ironing board. There is a lovely pine kitchen table with painted chairs enough for 5 people
Upstairs, you will find all floors fitted with Sisal flooring, a King size bed in the main bedroom, hanging space and cupboards with a dressing table and stool, a hairdryer, bedside cabinets and table lamps. A standard double bed is in the 2nd bedroom - this room also has a sofa bed which can be made up to provide either a twin bed set up or as an extra bed for the 5th guest. When the sofa bed is not made up, it serves as a fabulous individual sofa. The bedroom has lovely exposed stone walls and has a real 'hide away' feel. On the landing is a shabby chic style console table - great for lap tops, with a desk lamp and a long wall mirror. The landing looks out on to the cottage garden at the rear of the property
All beds are made ready for your arrival with lovely crisp white bed linen, soft quilts, pillows, throws and bolster cushions for your comfort. Both bedrooms have good lighting from lamps and ceiling lights
The bathroom is set in stone walls with travertine tiles and contemporary fittings in the bath, overhead shower, basin and a soft close lid on the w.c. A lovely deep window sill gives a great space for toiletries, oak framed mirror, wall mounted shaving mirror, heated towel rail, plenty of soft towels and bath mats. Toiletries are provided including soap, hand cream, shower gel, body lotion, loo roll etc
The cottage garden is private and very secure, it looks out over toward the c.13th Century Church of St Mary's - church bells can be heard at the cottage, but they are not overly loud! There is a stone built summer house which is great for relaxing, reading, playing outdoor games. Directly outside the back door is a lovely set of metal garden furniture with a sun shade for the summer months and a gas BBQ. We have mature wisteria growing on the stone walls providing lovely soft green shading in the summer months
Wishbone provides it’s guests with an elegant relaxing break, beautifully renovated limestone internal walls which add such great character to the building and a lovely feel throughout the cottage
Whatever you have in mind, we’re sure that Wishbone can provide the perfect base for it!
There is on street parking at Wishbone
We do not recommend the cottage for wheel chair users as there is a step in to the cottage from the pavement and 2 sets of stairs to the bedrooms and bathroom
Guests have exclusive access to the whole of Wishbone including the private cottage garden at the rear of the property - we live away from the cottage - a few minutes drive - but still in the boundaries of Fairford.

I find it very important to keep in touch during your booking process, giving you any more detail you need for your stay. Should you need to know anything in particular, I am always happy to help where I can
I meet Guests at the beginning of their stay, you are then left to your own devices and given all privacy for the duration of your stay. I am always contactable if help or assistance is required. I live close by in Fairford only a few minutes away
