Middle Gable The Old Hall is one of the most picturesque and historic properties in the Cotswolds, forming part of an original 17th century manor house, dating from the time of the English Civil War, over 350 years ago. This grade II* listed property sits in peaceful gardens, in the heart of the famous Cotswolds market town of Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds'. This lovely town has numerous shops, restaurants and pubs, and is ideally located for exploring the entire Cotswolds region and beyond. The house has been sympathetically refurbished and retains a wealth of character features, including dovecotes (square holes on the outside wall, originally intended to house doves or pigeons), stone mullion windows, wooden beams, a grand fireplace, original wooden flooring and a “wig and gown” cupboard, to store the wigs and gowns worn by people of the period. Complementing these period features, Middle Gable The Old Hall has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, two satellite TVs, a Blu-ray home theatre system and a well equipped kitchen. Middle Gable The Old Hall sleeps up to five people, in two bedrooms: two in a spectacular four-poster bed in bedroom 1 and three in single beds in bedroom 2. There is a bathroom and a shower room. The living room and both bedrooms look out over beautifully maintained gardens, which include a paved seating area for Middle Gable The Old Hall guests, and there is off-street parking for two/three cars, a distinct advantage in Bourton-on-the-Water. The layout of the house makes Middle Gable an ideal retreat for a family or a group of friends. House Rules Security deposits A security deposit of £150 is payable to the property owners, which is returned by the owner after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property less any deductions for breakages or damage incurred. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. Guests are specifically requested not to move furniture, or beds, around within the property and material failure to abide by this rule may result in a deduction from the security deposit. For UK based guests, the owner's preferred payment method is via a cheque (for arrival dates more than 14 days in advance). Overseas guests must pay the deposit via Paypal. Further details of how to pay the security deposit will be provided with your booking confirmation. Occupancy The maximum occupancy of the property, including its grounds, is five guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant. Pets Regrettably, Middle Gable The Old Hall does not accept pets. Bed sizes and configurations Bedroom 1: Four poster super king size bed; Bedroom 2: Three full size single beds. Two of the beds can be pushed together (although they are not zip and link beds) Fuel and logs Electricity and gas are included in the letting price. Logs for the wood burning stove can be purchased locally. Parking Middle Gable The Old Hall has a double garage with off street parking directly outside the garage for one additional car.

About the neighbourhood
Bourton-on-the-Water is arguably one of the most popular villages of the Cotswolds, especially amongst overseas visitors. Having been nicknamed the 'Venice of the Cotswolds', its scenery is the main draw for travellers. The River Windrush meanders through beautiful English countryside before passing over rapids next to the Old Mill and arriving at Bourton.
Getting around
The Cotswolds is a rural location and whilst there is access to public transport, it is highly recommended that you have a car.
