Access Statement

Access Statement for Seven Springs Cottages
Seven Springs Cottages have been reconstructed around what was once a stable yard. Built in 1985 in traditional Cotswolds stone, the properties have a tiled roof and double glazed windows. The cottages are built around a central courtyard and the owners live in the adjoining property.

The cottages are set in grounds of one acre. These are largely laid to lawn. The driveway and grounds are steeply sloped. There is a children's climbing frame and a children's playhouse.
