Welcome to Friesland Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals.

Friesland Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold stone cottage, dating back to the 1700s, which is located on the edge of the picturesque Cotswolds village of Shilton, and surrounded by stunning countryside. Shilton is well known for its attractive ford across “The Shill” brook, its open village green and its pretty stone cottages, all of which are much photographed and provided the setting for the Old Forge in Downton Abbey. The village also has an award winning pub, The Rose and Crown, which ensures that Shilton provides a true Cotswold experience. The beautiful market town of Burford is just two miles away and can easily be walked to across the fields from the cottage, and the many other lovely towns and villages of the Cotswolds are all within easy reach, as are famous places such as Blenheim Palace, Oxford and Cheltenham. London is also easily accessible by train or car.
