A charming cottage in the heart of the Cotswolds with superb views


The Old Grain House is located in the quintessential and picturesque Cotswold village of Lower Swell which supports a church, a primary school and a pub. It is situated just a mile from the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold which provides an excellent range of day to day facilities, including a Tesco store, along with several very good restaurants and an array of antique shops and boutiques; the stylish organic farm and lifestyle shop at Daylesford is also close by. The Regency Spa town of Cheltenham is easily accessible, as is the historic market town of Cirencester, both providing excellent further amenities.

Connections by road and rail are excellent with Kingham mainline railway station, about six miles away, offering a direct service to London Paddington taking about seventy five minutes. The A40 provides access to Oxford, the M40 to London and the national motorway network.


The Old Grain House is one of a cluster of farm buildings that used to form part of Rectory Farm and which were sympathetically converted to residential use in 1996.

The entrance to The Old Grain House is approached via a gravel drive and parking area. Beyond the garage, a wooden gate opens onto a path which leads across a pretty garden to the front door. The hallway is lovely and bright having glass doors and window panelling across the front and also serves as a dining area. Through double glass doors is the spacious drawing room with a central fireplace which houses a gas stove and has French doors to the garden. To the other side of the reception hall is the kitchen/breakfast room which has a utility area tucked away to the side. There is an electric hob and an oil fired Stanley boiler and range which not only cooks but also heats the hot water and runs the central heating. There is a cloakroom off the hall.

Up the stairs is a lovely light galleried landing off which is the characterful, beamed, master bedroom with steps leading down to an en-suite bathroom. There are two further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

Outside, the lawned garden is bordered by mature shrubs and beds and there is a lovely arbour in which to enjoy the stunning far reaching views. The property also benefits from a single garage and additional informal parking.

Dining hall, drawing room, kitchen/breakfast room, utility room, cloakroom, master bedroom suite, two further bedrooms, family bathroom.
