Vendors' thoughts: "Coachman's House is a beautiful and stylish home in an unspoilt village that is protected by extensive National Trust ownership of the surrounding land. It is a special little community of nice neighbours and it has a very secure feel to it. The property it is well run, hassle free and impeccably maintained. All the external upkeep and structure is covered by the service charge and this includes window cleaning, chimney sweeping and gutter and drain clearing so it could also work well as a lock-up and leave. We have loved our time here!"

In a nutshell: An elegant and superbly maintained Cotswold home is a fabulous village.
