Vendors' thoughts: "Set back from the village road we, as a family, have been privileged to enjoy the cottage’s peace and privacy, whilst being in the heart of the village. We have loved being able to allow our children to roam free in the enclosed garden. We love the village and nearby Cirencester, both for the people and everything they offer. This is a very special spot that we have been lucky enough to call home. "
