Looking for a UK-based honeymoon? Greenside Cottage is a stunning 400-year-old thatched cottage from Boutique Retreats, situated in the picturesque countryside of the Cotswolds.
5 reasons to visit Greenside Cottage on your honeymoon
Greenside Cottage, with its unique original features, landscaped surroundings and super convenient location, is a sublime hideaway for honeymooners.
Here at Wedding Ideas, we’ve outlined some of the reasons to fall in love with this boutique thatched cottage…
This 400-year-old hidden gem displays its original features proudly, from its exposed stone walls and beamed ceilings to its spectacular wood-burning stove.
But of course, this is not a love nest that could ever be described as ‘old fashioned’; stylish, contemporary touches can be discovered throughout, from underfloor heating to super-luxe beds and fabulously deep, plump sofa.
The dual-aspect living area is a cosy, light space that’s perfect for curling up in on an evening, lined with a gorgeous Persian rug and wide oak floorboards. In the daytime, cosy up in the armchair next to the window, where you can enjoy a cup of tea as you gaze across the verdant village green. So blissful!
The sleep space
Sleep is one thing you’ll get plenty of here, especially when you feel this relaxed. The cottage houses two spacious bedrooms, including a grand master bedroom with a vaulted beamed ceiling and beautiful views.
Doze peacefully in the king-sized ‘Margot’ bed, with its sumptuous pillow-top mattress that guarantees a wonderful night’s sleep.
Planning to bring a couple of guests? The second bedroom is just as delightful, with a wrought-iron double bed, ornate oak furniture and a striking beamed vaulted ceiling.
With its handmade terracotta tiled floor, rustic vintage Welsh dresser and Victorian dining table, you’ll feel truly at home in this relaxed, country-style kitchen.
We adore the solid wooden work surfaces and elegant blue cabinets, combined with the Smeg induction range cooker and all the modern equipment you need to rustle up tasty dishes.
The outdoor space
Summer days are simply glorious here; enjoy al fresco meals on the sunny terrace, where you’ll find a large table, benches and chairs, as well as a barbecue.
Better yet, because the cottage is dog-friendly, there’s more than enough space for your furry friends to burn off any energy, too. Here’s to kicking back in the sunshine with a G&T and a good book…
The Cotswolds is of course famed for its stunning scenery, and around the cottage you’ll find there’s plenty of beautiful ground to cover.
Take a stroll across the Cherwell Valley, where there’s numerous footpaths that are perfect for long romantic walks. Or why not head into Oxford for the day? There’s museums, shops and some fabulous market places, not to mention the iconic colleges.
Less than two hours from London, Greenside Cottage is also easily reachable by car and train. So, what are you waiting for? Book in your visit now…
