Pond House Cottage description

This detached holiday cottage is aptly named, located amongst the owner’s grounds, with several large ponds and a great variety of ducks and birdlife. Visitors have sole use of a fully fenced pond area to the side of the cottage, ideal for dogs and children. Just 1 mile from Cricklade, a small, historic, 9th-century Saxon town, lying at the edge of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and is the only Wiltshire town situated on the banks of the River Thames. It’s midway between Swindon and Cirencester, and is surrounded by lovely countryside ideal for walking, riding and cycling. At the north of the town is North Meadow, now a National Nature Reserve, and home to the rare ’Snakeshead Fritillary’ which flower in April. Nearby is the Cotswold Water Park which offers activities including sailing, water/jet skiing, fishing and bird watching. Travelling around the Cotswolds there are many places to visit, step back in time by wandering the streets of the Regency spa town of Cheltenham, as well as ancient market towns such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Campden and Anglo-Saxon Winchcombe, where you’ll discover Sudeley Castle. Beautiful ancient villages of note in this area include Broadway (’Jewel of the Cotswolds’), Bourton-on-the-Water (Little Venice), Stanton, and Snowshill. Some of the best Cotswold gardens include Batsford Arboretum, Hidcote, Kiftsgate, Sezincote and Bourton House. Leading visitor attractions include Snowshill Manor, the mysterious Rollright Stones and Chastleton House. Some particularly special historic towns include Cirencester (the Roman capital of the Cotswolds), Tetbury, Painswick (often called Queen of the Cotswolds), Burford, Malmesbury and Woodstock (home of Blenheim Palace). Some tourist attractions of special note are Westonbirt Arboretum, Woodchester Mansion, Kelmscot Manor, Malmesbury Abbey and Gardens, and the village of Bibury, which was once described by William Morris as ’the most beautiful village in the Cotswolds’.
