Vendors' thoughts: "My family and I have loved living at Old Dower House. From the moment I first stepped through the door, I have felt a sense of peace and calm within its beautiful Cotswold stone walls. Guests who stay with us always say they sleep better here than anywhere else! We have all worked from home over the last year, whilst enjoying walks through the stunning countryside right from our gate. The villagers are incredibly kind and friendly with an active Whatsapp group, where help is offered within minutes of a request. All this and only 15 minutes drive to either Winchcombe or Charlton Kings. It has the perfect balance of being surrounded by gorgeous countryside with the convenience of facilities nearby."

In a nutshell: Exceptional Cotswold charm in a fabulous village location. The countryside views are superb!
