were good to go

 Beautiful Cotswolds

Lantern House is a charming spacious period cottage situated in the heart of the lovely village of Sherston in the Cotswolds, which is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Our holiday home provides you and your family with self-catering accommodation at an affordable price in a great location. 

Take the opportunity to relax and recharge through experiencing the wonders of the beautiful Cotswolds.  We're just 90 minutes by car or train from London, but it is totally different from our capital city and offers some of England's best countryside and honey-colour stone centuries old picturesque Cotswolds villages and towns like Sherston and Bath.

Coronavirus Safeguards

For flexibility over guests' arrival and departure time and social distancing we have self check-in and check-out arrangements, which are emailed in advance together with helpful information on staying in the cottage and area.

We have also introduced a number of important safeguards to help protect our guests from Coronavirus.  These include a risk assessment process and taking proactive actions to minimise the risks, such as, an enhanced cleaning and laundering regime - a signed cleaning checklist will be left for confirmation this has been done.  
Extra cleaning supplies are provided under the kitchen sink and in the bathroom cupboard for guests to use as needed.  

Please note non-essential frequently handled items have been removed, such as, the welcome folder, reading and local area books/ leaflets, magazines, scatter cushions (but not sofa cushions), and toys. 

If a guest tests positive for Coronavirus or exhibits symptoms please refer to UK NHS information about what to do.

In recognition of 
following government and industry Coronavirus guidelines, and ensuring processes are in place to maintain cleanliness and aid social/ physical distancing, we have been awarded the 'WE'RE GOOD TO GO' certificate by our National Tourist Organisation.


We have enjoyed offering Lantern House for rental since 2007 and look forward to continuing to help our guests have wonderful stays, here's a typical testimonial...

"A fabulous cottage everything fantastic, very well equipped.  You have thought of everything.  We had a super time here." 

Please take a look at ALL the feedback kindly left by guests in the visitors' book, many of whom come back again and again and again...

Lantern House Master Bedroom

Relax also in the comfy lounge seating around the traditional inglenook fireplace and why not use the wood burner already set, and with a complimentary bucket of logs to keep extra snuggly during the colder months.  For Christmas & New Year the cottage is tastefully decorated to help give that extra sparkle for a thoroughly enjoyable and memorable visit to the Cotswolds.
