Here & Now
If you have been looking for pet-friendly cottages that are set in idyllic places and yet within a reasonable drive from London, you should click through to Beachspoke Cottages. Whilst it is a relatively new company, its inventory is growing and already there are some delightful finds. Check out Ivy Cottage, a 2 bedroom property in the heart of the Cotswolds, close enough to allow you to drive to some of the key sites of the area, like Burford or Bibury. The cottage is simply furnished and has very smart and sleek bedrooms and bathrooms – there is a lovely copper bath in the master room as well.
The cottage has a well-stocked kitchen to allow your country creative juices to flow. On opening the fridge, you are welcomed with a bottle of champagne and there are some bottles of local spirits to sample so you are likely to curl up in front of the fire and talk the night away.
