Marlings End is a cosy hideaway cottage, sleeping up to 5 in 3 bedrooms - with antique furnishings, pictures and decorations, and all the comforts of an easily-run home. Set in its own walled garden, there are stunning southerly views over the Owlpen valley.
Popular with families, especially those with dogs, this friendly cottage housed one of the 'thirteen weavers of Owlpen' before the decline of the Cotswold woollen cloth industry in the 1830s. It is built of Cotswold stone and has magnificent southerly views and an old cottage garden, set about with traditional Cotswold dry-stone walls.
Nestling below the hanging beech woods, it lives up to the name ‘Fiery Lane’ which leads here, from Old English words meaning "a wooded hill".
Downstairs a porch leads to the hallway and a cosy English mid-Victorian sitting-room with an open fireplace. The farmhouse dining-room has antique furniture, including a traditional English country settle, pine dining table, and Hogarth prints.
The fully-equipped kitchen features a fridge/ freezer, microwave, dishwasher, walk-in larder and tumble drier.
The cloakroom downstairs has a wash-basin and lavatory, and a utility area with washing-machine next door. The cottage is centrally-heated.
Upstairs are three bedrooms. The main bedroom has a double bed with lovely views over the valley. The second bedroom has twin beds, and there is also a third small single bedroom. The bathroom has a bath with over-bath shower.
The cottage is situated on the lane to the village, above the farm pastures on the left of the valley. It has a large, enclosed private garden with gorgeous views over the valley and a table for al fresco dining.
Wander the gardens of the Tudor manor house at your leisure, and enjoy miles of walks in private woodland in this hidden corner of the Cotswolds.
