Welcome to Shenley, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals.
Shenley is a beautiful Grade II* listed cottage, peacefully situated at the end of a short terrace that was once the Manor House in Broadwell, one of the most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds. The village is centred around a large green, which Shenley overlooks, and contains many period properties and a welcoming local pub, as well as being ideally located for exploring the stunning surrounding countryside. The famous market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is just over a mile away, with its wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, and Moreton-in-Marsh is three miles away, providing a direct train line to London. Shenley is perfectly placed for visiting the many towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
