Inglenook Cottage is the epitome of a chocolate-box cottage, and has featured on postcards, in books and in the press. It’s bursting with character and lies with many other thatched properties in the idyllic village of Broad Campden.
300 years old, the Grade II listed cottage used to be the village smithy, and it has a huge inglenook fireplace, complete with seat and bread oven where you can cosy up in front of a roaring log fire. There are countless exposed beams, a stone staircase and ancient wooden floorboards. The property is sympathetically restored with top quality modern appliances, a beautiful fitted wooden kitchen, and a cottage-style bathroom with shower.
