Welcome to Thames Head Wharf, a former Thames & Severn Canal building, now restored as a stunning historical Cotswold home, originally built as a warehouse in 1784, we have lovingly brought this once neglected building back to life.
Chris & Ann would like to welcome and invite you to have a relaxing and peaceful stay in our country Cotswold home.
Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) with glorious and stunning open countryside views, away from the hustle and bustle of town life.

The bedroom offered in this listing is a quiet peaceful comfortable warm space complete with a modern en suite facility.

The room has a full wooden beamed ceiling with timbers reputed to be over 500 years old, beautiful to look at when relaxing in the sumptuous, cotton linen, king size bed. Available at bedside is plenty of electrical and USB sockets and also bedside lamps and main lighting switch options. The room has a large array of storage and hanging space as well as large mirrors and a small sofa. There is a large flat screen monitor/TV with wifi internet connection.

Views from the room windows overlook our gardens and the stunning countryside with gentle rolling meadows and hills.

If the British weather allows (!) you are welcome to relax in our gardens and enjoy a beer or glass of wine and maybe spot in the adjoining fields roaming deer, foxes, wild rabbits and other wildlife in the evening south west facing sunset.

Where you’ll be

Gloucestershire, England, United Kingdom

We are an historic Cotswold building being built in 1784 as part of the now disused Thames & Severn Canal inland waterway. Located 3 miles from the Roman town of Cirencester and look out to the area known as the Source of the River Thames and also the Thames Path.

Note - The spring, lake and beginning of the River Thames is viewable during rainy periods throughout the year but then mostly dry and below ground during the drier summer months.

The first property on the River Thames !
