Little Maunditts Cottage 3 en-suite bedrooms, South Cotswold
Little Maunditts Cottage 3 en-suite bedrooms, South Cotswold. Little Maunditts Cottage is situated in a conservation area in a quiet lane in the heart of the delightful and friendly village of Sherston within walking distances of all the village facilities including the pub, the church, the village store and a wine shop.
The cottage was originally the barns and stabling for a long-gone pub and when it was lovingly brought to life in 2014 the conversion allowed the property to have the character of an old building with all the benefits of modern facilities.
The interior of Little Maunditts Cottage is modern, bright and airy but still has a wealth of characterful features including handsome oak doors reclaimed from a Cotswold Manor House and unusual Italian marble radiators in the bedrooms.
Little Maunditts Cottage is ideal if you are several couples holidaying together as all three bedrooms are roughly equal in size with comparable facilities and all have en-suite bathrooms. Nobody in your group will have to settle for a less comfortable room! The large kitchen/dining/living room is a sociable venue in which to prepare supper and enjoy each others’ company rather than someone being stuck in the kitchen whilst others relax elsewhere. There is also an additional comfortable sitting room.

Sherston and the local area……
The historic village of Sherston was voted by The Times newspaper as being the 5th most desirable place to live in the UK. With it’s elegant wide main street, excellent pub, wine shop and friendly village shop with post office, it is easy to see why! In July Sherston hosts a very popular Boules Tournament and Carnival and the wide high street is converted into a series of boules courts.
There are fabulous walks, both leaving directly from the cottage or a short drive away and there are plenty of guide books and maps on hand to help you choose a route.
Little Maunditts Cottage is 5 miles from the historic town of Malmesbury, the oldest borough in England, with it’s magnificent part-ruined Abbey and winding lanes and riverside walks. (www.malmesbury.gov.uk/tourist-information-centre)
Also just 5 miles away is Tetbury, renowned for its 17th century market hall and wide selection of antique shops. (www.visittetbury.co.uk )

The National Arboretum at Westonbirt is also very close by. In addition to the magnificent parkland and impressive and varied tree specimens, Westonbirt hosts a series of special events and open air concerts. ( http://www.forestryengland.uk/westonbirt-the-national-arboretum )
The Stroud Valleys, Bath, Cirencester, the Marlborough Downs, Castle Combe and Lacock are all easily accessible and it is a scenic drive to the charming (but much busier) popular Cotswold tourist destinations of Stow-In-The-Wold, Bourton-On-The-Water and Moreton-In-Marsh.
Castle Combe is often referred to as the prettiest village in England and Lacock, almost entirely owned by the National Trust, is regularly used as a film location – among it’s credits are Harry Potter, War Horse and the drama series Pride and Prejudice and Cranford.

Closer (and some say more interesting) than Stonehenge is the ancient stone circle, museum and manor house in the heart of the Avebury World Heritage Site (www.nationaltrust.org.uk/avebury )
