Why JULIE BATTISHILL chose Kemble
It's not only the head of the River Thames, but our drive is the old Thames and Severn Canal - it's an interesting and pretty setting! The accommodation has the most comfortable bed, and it is a lovely spacious studio.

Beautiful little studio/ converted stables
We were looking for somewhere peaceful but close to a small town to stay in and found this little property.
It was a great size for the 2 of us with large comfy sofa, comfy bed and of course the hot tub.
We walked to the nearby pub one night for food (little bit treacherous on the dark and rain but we made it!) then got a cab to town the next night.
The hot tub was great. It did take some time to heat up but it was pretty cold outside, but once we got it going it was lovely!
The owner was really friendly and helpful and even gave us a lift to town one night.
Would love to come back

We had an amazing stay at The Stables! Communicating with Julie was a pleasure, and her and her husband popped over when we arrived to welcome us and walk through everything.
They have little baskets made up with local walking routes and local amenities. We took a walk to the head of the River Thames and then to a local pub.
The wood fired hot tub was beautiful - it took quite some time for it to get hot but it had also been incredibly cold! Once in, it was lovely!
Lots of cute little touches at the property, would definitely recommend to others!
This place was amazing , the owners very helpful and nothing was to much trouble, best place we've stayed, no faults at all, great little getaway great for walks/country pubs, hot tub was amazing. Whole stay was amazing
Lovely country break
Flawless property and excellent communication from very accommodating host
What we expected and more!
Fantastic hosts who were very accommodating, friendly and made our stay very comfortable. I would highly recommend this little gem!
Lovely little bolthole!
The Stables is ideal accommodation for exploring Cirencester and the surrounding countryside. It is down a long driveway, meaning the busy road is not a concern. You can also literally walk out the door and into the neighbouring fields for a long country walk. It has everything you need to enjoy a break plus it gives you the flexibility of being able to cook basic meals, keeping the costs of eating out down. The bed is lovely and comfortable and the icing on the cake is the AMAZING hot tub. Being able to enjoy the hot tub, even on rainy days and staring up at the star filled sky was just magical. The owners are also incredibly helpful and have lots of local knowledge. Highly recommend!
The head of the River Thames starts here! Can't promise water, as it goes up and down really quickly, but beautiful walk to the Source and also to the first well. We are convenient to explore Tetbury, Cirencester, Stroud, Bourton-on-the-Water, Bibury and attractions such as The National Arboretum at Westonbirt, Cotswold Water Park, Cotswold Wildlife Park, Sudely Castle and all that the Cotswolds have to offer.
