'Owlpen in Gloucestershire – Ah, what a dream is there!' rhapsodised Vita Sackville West in 1941. Later, Prince Charles called it 'the epitome of the English village'.

This fairy-tale Cotswold hamlet centres around a picturesque church, a Tudor manor house and nine holiday cottages, all set in an equally picturesque valley with 215 acres of woodlands and farmland. The distinctive cottages, which sleep from two to nine guests, at Owlpen lie scattered along the valley, several are listed historic buildings.

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 English 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". With three bedrooms, it can sleep five people (including children) with all the comforts of an easily-run home.
