Built in the 18th Century and Grade II listed, Little Orchard is the quintessential detached Cotswold stone cottage which, from 1931 to 1933, was the home of Graham Greene, the prolific English novelist, playwright, short story writer and critic.

This thatched cottage is full of character with many exposed beams throughout. The lounge has a log fire (logs provided), flatscreen TV with Freeview, DVD player and Bose ipod dock. The dining room boasts a large inglenook fireplace (no longer working) with salt box and flagstone floors. Upstairs the two luxurious bedrooms include a Super King (6 foot wide) craftsman built bed in bedroom one, and a Bateau style double bed (4'6" wide) in bedroom two, with an ensuite bathroom. There is also a separate shower room.

A small stream with steep sides trickles through the rear garden. A garden table, chairs and umbrella are provided for sunny days or al fresco dining. There is private, off road parking for two cars. The cottage is situated in a quiet, residential lane less than 5 minutes walk from the High Street.  The lane is a cul de sac that continues as a footpath and is the start of the Cotswold Way, leading up to Dover’s Hill.

Free Wi-Fi. Full gas central heating. Cot and high chair available on request.
