Culls Cottage in Lechlade
Sleeps 6

Culls Cottage in Lechlade

Dating back to the 17th century, this traditional Grade II-listed Cotswold eco-cottage near Lechlade-on-Thames in Gloucestershire is the complete luxury escape package for families or groups of friends at any time of year.

Culls Cottage has three double bedrooms, enabling it to comfortably accommodate up to six guests for short breaks and long holidays in the countryside.

One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor and has access to a ground floor toilet and wet room, making it very suitable for 1-2 guests for whom stairs would represent a challenge. Flagstones prevail throughout the ground floor, all level apart from one 2-inch step into the kitchen area.

The cottage offers contemporary interiors and special touches, such as Flatscreen TVs in the Lounge and master bedroom. The former space also has a DVD player, an iPod dock, a small library of hand-picked holiday reading books, and many local guides and games for all ages. WiFi is available throughout the house. For families with young children, in addition to a cot, highchair and stairgate, a changing mat and toy box are also available to reduce the contents of your boot space.

The kitchen is equipped to keep even gourmet chefs content with the range of appliances and utensils available. Facilities include a cooker, hob, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, freezer and washing machine.

The indulgent bathroom with a double-ended bath, separate 'raindance' shower and underfloor heating includes a soothing range of luxurious body spa products and towel sets, meaning you can totally relax here and travel light. Then there are the 'little things' such as the finest wine glasses, white bone china crockery, and that all-important espresso coffee machine.

If you wish to keep in touch, the cottage has free WiFi.

On sunny days, relax outdoors in the large sunny garden with lawns, shrubs, flower beds and a large weeping willow, all maintained by our RHS-trained team. Outdoor benches, tables and chairs allow dining under the stars on balmy evenings. There is ample off-road parking at Culls for up to 4-cars (depending on size).

Booking for a wedding weekend

We booked both Culls Cottage and nearby Chestnut Cottage for the weekend of our wedding at Stone Barn. Both cottages were perfect for the occasion - each near a village pub so we could have dinners with our respective families and friends the night before with plenty of parking.

Culls Cottage is both cosy and light and very equipped with everything you might need for any eventuality! The owners had kindly put out some dried lavender from the garden to burn in the woodburner and more than enough logs were supplied to keep the fire burning all evening. The owners were also incredibly accommodating with the additional bedding and have been incredibly helpful in the retrieval of a bluetooth speaker which was accidentally left behind.

The cottage is expensive but the amenities, beautiful location and quality of service all justify the cost. Thanks very much for having us - we will definitely be looking to stay again!

Comfort in every sense

Located in a picturesque village, this cottage provided an ideal base for our family's pre-Christmas escape. It is a soothing place, comfortably furnished and fully equipped yet retaining its character. The location was ideal for us, permitting easy day trips to Bath, Oxford, and Stratford in various directions. We also had brief, very nice experiences with nearby Thames Path segments and farm markets, which could fill a stay in their own right. And the lovely garden behind the cottage made us wish to return in a warm season as well.

Faultless Cotswolds stay

We loved Culls Cottage as a getaway weekend break. Not that a weekend was enough to take in the area and the pubs/restaurants, the easy walks and the lovely villages. Try the stroll to The Swan, five minutes' walk rewarded with great food, wine and beer. Thames footpath at Lechlade was a super walk on crisp sunny day. Burford town has amazing high street of beautiful old buildings and a classic, proper, butcher...Castles.
Cottage had all we needed to cook our dinner. Hooray for proper sharp knives in a self-catering cottage. We will come back likely in warmer months to lounge in inviting garden.

An ideal holiday cottage

We had a wonderful break at Culls Cottage which was warm and welcoming on our arrival. When we lit the wood burner in the evening this added to the cosy ambience. Everything we could ever need was already provided, so much attention given to detail, fresh flowers everywhere - even in the superb bathroom and the shower room. To open the curtains in the morning and see the lovely extensive garden is a delight - we even caught a glimpse of the first snowdrops pushing through. The Swan is recommended for dining out but we equally enjoyed cooking our own meals in the well equipped kitchen. Southrop is a lovely village and also within reasonable driving distance we were able to enjoy time in Oxford with lovely shops and the Ashmolean Museum, Lechlade on Thames, Witney and the Cotswold Wollen Weavers at nearby Filkins. We know there is so much more to see and do and so a return visit is a must. I highly recommend this first class holiday accommodation.

The Culls cottage team were very accommodating and helpful.

The cottage is beautiful and comfortable and very well stocked with all the essentials - we would love to return when we're not working to fully appreciate it!

Gemma Porter

Beautiful village and delightful cottage and garden

We've had a wonderful short break and just sad it couldn't be longer. Beds were comfortable, kitchen really well equipped, bathrooms spotless and the garden is glorious. The communal space is quite small for 5/6 people but the good sized garden is wonderful. Village is beautiful as is the surrounding countryside. Choose a sunny day to walk across the fields to Eastleach for lunch at the Victoria Inn. Chris is so helpful. We do hope to return... for longer next time!

Lovely cottage in Cotswolds

Lovely and luxurious cottage, with beautiful garden, in stunning location. The owners should be proud. Lots for adults and kids to do nearby. Made for a special holiday.


Lovely cottage

We stayed just three nights at Culls Cottage. It's a beautiful cottage with a stunning garden. Sadly the weather was cold and inclement so we were not able to enjoy the garden, but it's idyllic, with lovely garden furniture in a few different places to help enjoy the best bits of it. It's been well designed and planted beautifully.

The cottage is also lovely, although I personally found the furniture/furnishings too modern for the era of cottage. For a cottage that purports to be eco I would have thought that old/antique furniture would have fitted the brief and the character of the cottage better. Nice thick traditional curtains, squishy sofas, indulgent beds, feather pillows and muted colours would look amazing in Culls Cottage, but that's my personal opinion.

The toiletries and champagne was a nice touch, as were the flowers in many vases dotted around. To meet the eco credentials though I would have also liked to have seen no light/air coming in (=heat escaping) around the back door (add draught proofing etc) and despite the cottage being listed there could be secondary glazing on many/all of the windows (I know as we have it in our listed cottage). An air source heat pump would also work well with the under floor heating, and give the owners the RHI income.

The bathrooms were very nice as was the kitchen. Sadly we were working so we spent very little time in the cottage itself. However, we did spend a lot of time exploring the area which is stunning. Dinner at The Swan in Southrop was excellent and I can also recommend the Five Alls at Filkins.

Anniversary weekend

Culls cottage was a wonderful location for a celebration weekend with friends. The cottage is beautiful and kitted out just as if you were at home. We really enjoyed the lovely garden and having the various seating areas outside. Dinner at The Swan in the village was excellent. South top is charming. All in all a perfect combination! Highly recommended.

Lisa Harlow

A wonderfully relaxing stay in a fabulous cottage in picturesque countryside - perfect UK getaway!

We had a fabulous stay at Culls Cottage; thank you to Chris and the team. The cottage is gorgeous and welcoming and we felt at home the moment we walked in. It is in a perfect Cotswolds location with beautiful surrounding villages. We will definitely come again!

Amber Sharman

Peaceful Weekend

We have stayed at Culls cottage many times and It's always a pleasure. The garden is beautiful and the cottage very comfortable. We love the eco friendly focus and the considered way the cottage is furnished and presented. For those who want to stay connected we found the broadband an added bonus, with impressive speeds given the rural setting. There is a fantastic pub within walking distance (the Swan) with a great menu, quality ingredients and cooking to match. Culls also has a lovely wood fire to accentuate the cosy cottage feel when the evening draws in. Great place.

Daniel Hennessy

Lovely break

Cull's Cottage is situated in Southrop, a quaint Cotswolds village. The cottage itself is very nice, its well-maintained and very comfortable and the kitchen has absolutely every utensil you need. My wife loves cooking, and she was impressed. Moreover, we were lucky with the weather as the sun was out almost every day!

Julian G. Davies

Cosy cottage in a fantastic location

Great location, cosy cottage, beautiful garden, very clean, extremely well equipped, fantastic customer service.

Claire Stone

Long weekend at the Cotswolds

Our third stay in the cottages - warm, cozy and beautiful with some snow in the garden! As always had a fantastic dinner at The Swan and walks in the crispy winter mornings!

Pedro Grayde

Culls is Cool

For a very very old property it has a really cool, contemporary feel. The spaces are light and bright and the property is equipped to such a high standard, we wanted for nothing. We were impressed by so much in the cottage, but the super comfy beds and underfloor heating made the cottage such a great place. The owners have clearly paid a lot of attention to detail here and we can't wait to come back to enjoy the huge garden in the summer. Supper at the local Swan pub just a short walk from the cottage was superb. A great find and our new holiday favourite: Culls is Cool

Phil Reedman

We Loved it

Culls Cottage: so much to say about it. We want to come back. We loved the kitchen - proper sharp knives, a coffee maker, and wine glasses galore. Excellent beds, so comfortable and cosy. Underfloor heating is uber luxe, I'm sold on it but the fire is nice too even if we didn't really need to light it...nice atmosphere. Southrop is a great village, quiet but with the essential Swan pub for drinks and a top meal. The suggested walk to the Victoria in Eastleach was easy, but a good excuse for exercise and the lunch menu there is worth going back for more. Birds in the garden, the "supermoon" and stars at night- you've really laid it all on. Thanks....and yes, we will be back.


Stunning Cottage for a romantic getaway

Perfect spot to explore and go for long walks and long pub lunches - that is, if you can bare to leave this adorably chic country hideaway. Everything you need has been thought of!

April Showers

A marvelous stay in the wonderful Culls Cottage. The showery weather didn't deter us and Culls' drenching shower room is the best shower I've enjoyed in a holiday cottage. My wife preffered the 'luxe bath where she read this month's Vogue. Like the shower the cottage is supremely spec'd. The kitchen seems to have enough crockery and glassware for double the number of guests and a dishwasher to wash it all up too. Thank you for the advice on where to eat. We loved both Kelmscott Plough and the village Swan. A glass of Champagne on the garden terrace in evening sunshine set us up for dinner and gave us a chance to admire the garden's fabulous planting...orange and black tulips high visual impact. We will be copying that look next year.


The best holiday cottage and amazing garden

Thank you so much for an amazing stay, the cottage is fantastic with so much character and so stylishly presented. It’s the home we would love to have. We stayed during the village open gardens weekend, which was special treat. We didn’t expect Culls garden to be so large and well tended - loved the fresh herbs and the weather was so great we even got to relax on the loungers. Had a great meal at The Swan, so lovely not to have to drive. Southrop village is so pretty. We will definitely get back as soon as we can. Your our new favourite place to stay.


Wonderful cottage

Extremely well equipped cottage in a beautiful location with a fabulous garden. The village pub The Swan is highly recommended.

Karina Brennan

Nice cottage

Very clean cottage, very welcoming.
Super nice garden
Very well equiped
Though the entrance for the car is stretched and the cottage height is low, I bumped in doors several times.

Virginia Rodriguez

Stylish cottage with beautiful garden

The cottage is very stylish and renovated in a sympathetic way. The equipment and facilities provided are excellent. The garden is a dream with a small meadow, roses, a weeping willow etc.

The sofas are a little uncomfortable with two having no back to them. The bathroom has a stylish bath but a little impractical with no overhead shower and the wet room is rather small. However, in all other ways this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in.


Fantastic Cottage

Fabulous cottage in a great location for exploring the cotswolds. Gardens were amazing and perfect for outside dining with the family. Would recommend a stay here!

Anthony Wilkes

Relaxing stay

Lovely cottage with beautiful garden. Every need catered for inside and out which makes for a truly relaxing stay. Southrop is a very quaint, classic Cotswold village for an afternoon or evening stroll, as well as boasting the excellent Swan gastro pub only 2 minutes walk from the cottage. Loved it!

Karen Jenkins

Lovely break

We were very impressed with the cottage and all it had to offer. Everything has been thought of. The weather meant we were also able to enjoy the beautiful garden. We will be back!

Tessa Whitehead

Lovely stay

We enjoyed our stay in Culls Cottage very much. We loved the cottage, the garden and the location in beautiful Southrop. One minor point of critique; the matrasses in the master bedroom were not very comfortable.

Michael Wijffelman

A real Cotswold Gem

Wow what a beautiful cottage and so perfectly decorated and equipped. Had everything we could possibly need. The garden is amazing - such a large and clearly well tended space.

There is so much to do in the area and we loved all the information left at the cottage.

The village pub The Swan is convenient, just a short walk through the picture postcard village. We will definitely return to this gorgeous Cottage and The Cotswolds.


Lovely Cottage in the heart of The Cotswolds

Wonderful weekend stay at Culls Cottage which was cozy and very comfortable with a well-stocked kitchen and lovely garden. The welcome champagne, fresh flowers and books detailing local walking maps and notable landmarks were an added bonus.
Culls Cottage is perfectly situated to enjoy walking and visiting the Cotswolds, which is a walker’s paradise in any weather.


Lovely Stay

We enjoyed our stay in Culls Cottage very much. We loved the cottage, the garden and the location in beautiful Southrop.


Great for our pre christmas get together

Culls cottage was all we wanted for our pre Christmas family get together - great style, warm and cosy. Loved the underfloor heating and the wood burner.

Thank you for dressing the house for Christmas it made all the difference.

Very Special Place

The cottage is very well equipped you won’t want for anything

Great location lots of information in the house about surrounding areas


Lovely Cottage

A well appointed cottage in a good location. A good base to explore the Cotswolds and a short walk to the local pub.


Loved the Cottage

Every detail covered; easy to find thanks for instructions email, keybox arrival, really lovely beds and duvets. Thrilled to hear the dawn chorus: country living at its best. Swan pub really good and so close....a few minutes walk away. The garden is great and the cottage has all that we could dream of. Nice books to read....we booked too short a break to read them....next time


Beautiful cottage in a perfect location

We were fortunate to have perfect weather over the weekend we stayed at Culls Cottage. The village was quiet and peaceful. The Cottage has a large garden that is well looked after. Country birds everywhere. Indoors a very practical layout with a good mix of modern with the old fixtures. It will be a very nice cottage to visit during winter and enjoy the low ceilings and the fire place. We were able to spend most of our time outdoors enjoying the views and nature in general. The walk to the next village had a well mapped route and easy to navigate. The area in general is really beautiful and very relaxing.


Another great weekend

Another great weekend in the countryside. Beautiful weather and an amazing cottage in a peaceful village. We really enjoyed our time here and will be back in winter to enjoy the fireplace.. Thank you.


Summer sunshine

Had a wonderful time exploring the Cotswolds and of course the summer shine in the beautiful garden here. Many BBQs (and quick drinks at The Swan) have been had. Best kept secret further afield was Sudeley Castle - stunning place to visit. Thank you.


An excellent week

An excellent week in an excellent cottage. The garden is fabulous & thankfully the weather was too! We have really enjoyed our time here and hope to return - Thank you.


Another lovely stay

Another lovely stay – this time we visited Hidcote house and gardens, Adam hensons farm and sudely castle. They were all amazing. No wonder your beautiful cottages are five star.


A terrific place to talk, cook, laugh

A terrific place to talk, cook, laugh, relax and just spend quality time together. The cottage is so cosy and well equipped. The kitchen wants for nothing, the lounge has a terrific wood burner and cosy throws. The underfloor heating was a lovely surprise for a winter’s morning and the beds were really comfortable. Didn’t use the garden but the sky at night was full of stars and we even spotted a barn owl on our drive out of the village. Culls is a special place and we will return.


Working in the area

We were working in the area, so not able to go exploring the area but the cottage was the perfect retreat after a long day at work. You have really thought of everything and it was very relaxing.


Beautifully decorated

Lovely cottage – The cottage is beautifully decorated and a lovely house. We really enjoyed our stay – everything was thought of from the flowers to kitchen utensils – beautiful soaps and fluffy towels. Luxury. Chris was superb and very helpful. We can’t fault the exceptional cottage in any way.


Wonderous retreat

Our second visit to this wondrous retreat. When we need calm but all the amenities of home this ticks all the boxes. Surrounded by quiet but with choices galore of places to eat or get take outs. A top dinner at the Swan, Kushi Indian in Lechlade and the Linwood café in Fairford is uber good latte-land



Charming, delightful, perfect


Thoroughly enjoyed our stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in culls Cottage, our only wish was could have stayed longer. I am already looking into bringing my girlfriends back.


Amazing cottage with an awesome garden

Culls cottage was amazing, clearly very old but with such modern amenities. It suited us perfectly. The garden was a real surprise, very well kept and with the great weather we were able to enjoy it every day. Thank you Chris and the team, we really hope to be back.


Beautiful cottage

We had a very pleasant stay in this beautiful cottage and garden. We also enjoyed our trips to Sudely castle and Highgrove as well as walking locally.


Our second visit

Our second visit here - we loved it and will be back again. Particularly enjoyed the garden flowers fresh from your wonderful garden - a joy.


Wonderful Stay

A wonderful stay catching up with family and friends back in the UK. The cottage is delightful and cosy and the garden beautiful and relaxing. We loved the Swan pub and the walk up to Eastleach to The Victoria. We really hope to return.
