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. We have plenty of parking here at Thames Head Wharf, no need to book or reserve. Best is to arrive by car but we have a train station (Kemble) nearby or the National Express bus stops off in our nearest town, Cirencester. Taxis are plentiful for train and bus arrivals....or if we are available and with notice, we may well be able to pick you up instead of calling a taxi. Located 3 miles from the Roman town of Cirencester. We 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.
