Vendors' thoughts: "Hill Cottage has been a wonderful home for us in the Cotswolds. We travel a lot so it has been the perfect bolt hole for us. The drawing room is one of our favourite rooms in which to host and we have had many entertaining dinner parties in the dining room which is so lovely and bright during the day. The garden is delightful and with the fountain and decked area it has been perfect for relaxing summer days. Poulton is a great village and being so close to Cirencester has been ideal for us. We will cherish many happy memories of living in the cottage."
