  • Stylish place in an beautiful little village

    Andrew2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very good host and cottage in winchcombe . Would thoroughly recommend for Cheltenham racing.

    Thomas2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little cottage with great personal touches throughout , making it the perfect stay . A welcome pack helped start us off , thoughtfully provided by the host along with top tips and local walking and F&B advice. Cosy bedrooms and top quality linen . Would definitely visit again

    Ann2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • It was a dream staying at the cottage! It was perfectly located and surpassed our expectations in coziness and thoughtful touches.

    Sarah2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • ...such a lovely cottage and perfectly located in the charming village of Winchcombe. Loved the welcome hamper and the Inglenook fireplace provided a homely comfort; the warm glow and crackle of log fire together with tea and chatter, books and cake made for another world whenever the weather closed in. Jan's 65th birthday found us in easy reach of high tea at the Manor in Lower Slaughter (a village of unsurpassed beauty) and within a two minute walk of the White Hart for evening dinner (one of those rare eateries where everything is quietly but exactly 'right'). This cottage has gone in Jan's 'little book of places to remember' and we shall be booking again when Sudeley Castle, Gardens and Grounds (a 5 minute walk from the cottage) strut their spring-come-summer glory.

    Nick2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Without a doubt I would recommend this property and host. My family of 4 stayed here for two nights. A quaint little cottage in a perfect location to explore the castle, pubs and footpaths around the area. Easy parking outside. Extremely clean throughout with a very cosy fire! There were beautiful extra touches which i wouldn’t want to spoil for anyone arriving here but loved the gin!

    Emma2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was a lovely cottage in a perfect location. Lots of lovely touches and very comfy. The only thing I would make people aware of is the ongoing building work at the property next door. Tradesman starting work one day before 8am which wasn’t ideal. Also taking up at least 3 of the parking spaces outside the property so not always easy to park.

    Debbie2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, spatious, beautiful location, with lots of thoughtful touches in the house itself!

    A stylish open plan barn conversion, with gorgeous uninterrupted Cotswold countryside views. It's in a private setting, perfect for couples or solo visitors. Situated on the edge of a beautiful village, it's an ideal base for enjoying all the Cotswolds has to offer, including great walking and cycling, lovely country pubs and famous cultural/sporting events in nearby Cheltenham (@10 miles). Alternatively you can just relax, enjoy the scenery and do nothing at all.
    We are perched on top of a hill on the edge of a beautiful and typical Cotswold village in an area of outstanding natural beauty. At the top of our driveway, tucked away from the main house, is our barn. If you are looking for something a little bit different but with a modern feel, gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside and privacy, then this will be for you. Our pool house was converted from a small stone barn and, as the name suggests, there is an outdoor pool and one side of the building looks out on to this (though it's only open June-August). The other side looks out on to uninterrupted views of magnificent rolling hills, complete with sheep, pheasants and birds of prey. Outdoor furniture is available. Inside it's a little non-conventional, and is open plan, with a mezzanine bedroom area that has a huge gable-end window and an 11-rung wall-fixed ladder to get you up to it. Up there is a low-level double bed and a cargo net that pulls across the mezzanine opening for extra safety, if needed. NB We are very sorry but this won't be suitable for anyone who cannot ably and confidently use a ladder to go both up and down. There is a separate toilet with a small hand basin and a walk-in overhead shower (please note no bath) with a connecting changing area where you can also store/hang things out of the way. The main room is open plan and has a kitchen area with an island and seating for 6. It's well equipped and includes gas hob, electric oven, fridge with small freezer box, dishwasher, microwave, toaster and kettle (no washing machine/dryer). There is a huge, very comfy corner sofa for relaxing and there's a TV with an Amazon Firestick with a small selection of channel apps including Netflix and Amazon Prime. It has under floor heating throughout. Please note we do not have curtains on the massive sliding doors on each side, however it is private where the barn is situated with no buildings overlooking it. There are removable blackouts that can be used on the gable-end window on the mezzanine/bedroom level, for those who prefer less light when sleeping. Outside there's a lovely deck and beyond the pool is a private garden area leading on to a paddock. Wifi works very well, mobile not very well at all, though you can hook-up to the wifi and use wifi calling, if you have it and that works perfectly.
    Our area is very beautiful, very green, very quiet and very rural. This makes for a relaxing and peaceful stay. It's also super-dark at night as we have no street lights. If you are looking for night-life you'd have to go to Cheltenham (15 mins drive, cab possible with a bit of pre-planning). Please note you will have to drive to get to a pub or shop.
  • Lovely and clean. Perfect getaway

    Chloe2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks Tina...it was a lovely barn and beautiful surroundings. Worth a visit.

    Razia2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was perfect! The converted barn was just what we needed and had everything for a lovely weekend. Views were amazing and the host left us to it but was only a message away. Highly recommend this place.

    Jordan2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great views and well insulated in winter.

    Christina2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Really lovely clean space with phenomenal views. Great base to explore the Cotswolds from!

    Rhys2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and accommodation and a very helpful host. We had everything we needed for a lovely stay. We hope to be back some time.

    Dan2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you for a very private, enjoyable stay in your pool house. The decor is modern and minimal as shown in the pictures- the bathroom and shower were functional and spacious. Even during stormy weather the views are beautiful and it’s very peaceful. We went to Cheltenham which is only a 15 minute drive. We didn’t go walking because of the weather but the pack in the barn is full of ideas. A pint of milk in the fridge would be my only suggestion. Otherwise everything was perfect.

    Alex2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, lovely veiws and good walks. Looking forward to staying again!

    Welcome to The Hayloft, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. The Hayloft is a stylish bolthole located in the peaceful village of Cold Aston. This unspoilt village has a real community feel, with its lovely church and primary school, as well as it’s popular country pub. Just a short drive away is Bourton-on-the-Water, one of the prettiest market towns in the Cotswolds, with its many tea rooms, pubs and restaurants, and the historic market town of Stow-on-the-Wold is also within easy reach. The location is also ideal for exploring famous tourist destinations, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace and Oxford. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    The Hayloft is part of a beautiful barn conversion, accessed via a gravel driveway. Steep stone steps lead up to the front door. The front door opens into the entrance hall, with all the rooms laid out on one floor: Living/dining room: This stylish living area is bright and spacious, with an eye-catching exposed Cotswold stone feature wall. This room has two sofas, a coffee table, a Freeview TV and DVD player. There is also a dining table and two chairs; Kitchen: The galley kitchen contains an electric oven with four-ring hob, a fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster and cafetière, as well as a washing machine/tumble dryer; Bedroom: Two steps lead down from the hallway into this characterful room with sloped ceilings, a king size bed and built-in cupboards for storage; Bathroom: Contains a bath with overhead shower, toilet and wash basin.

There is one allocated parking space and further on-street parking is available in the village if needed.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Lovely stay. Unbelievably comfortable bed ! Beautiful original wood beams and stone walls, tasteful decor and a lovely place to unwind in. Came for a long weekend of total peace and quiet to relax and recharge ..... and pretty much got exactly that. Hosts left me all the details I needed and didn’t disturb me once , which I really appreciated. Thank You !

    Mitch2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely what you see on the photos - it is spotlessly clean, modern and on trend. The amenities leave nothing to be desired, even down to the little touches like dressing gowns on the bed and fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. The ‘check in’ was very quick and easy, all that was required was a key safe code. The property itself is in a perfect location, an idyllic little village with a pub straight across the road (that does amazing food!) and not too far from Bourton-On-The-Water which is beautiful and well worth a visit. Could not fault our stay and will definitely be recommending to our friends and family!

    Samantha2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Don’t hesitate to book The Hayloft if your travels take you to the Northern Cotswolds. Beautiful home, perfect location, serene surroundings.

    Philip2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay and perfect location for visiting the stunning Cotswolds x

    Georgia2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is absolutely gorgeous. Looks exactly as it does in the pictures. We really enjoyed the extra touches like biscuits in the kitchen and lovely smelling body washes in the bathroom. The apartment was also really warm and cosy. Location is great for general cotswolds exploring and the pub opposite (The Plough) is cosy and friendly. We were enjoying our stay so much that we requested an extra day, which the owner allowed us at no extra charge! We really couldn’t have been happier with our stay. I should also add that the bed is really comfy and everything felt sparkling clean.

    Emma2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a unique and beautiful location in the Cotswolds! Much bigger than I expected and we had a lovely time. Highly recommend.

    Amy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay and is in a really great location only a few minutes away from Bourton-on-the-Water, with lots of other walking stops nearby. Amenities are brilliant and the area the cottage is in is lovely and quiet. Would stay again

    Victoria2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a wonderful place to stay in the Cotswold, as being located within 45 min to 1 hour of main places to visit. Cold Aston is very quiet town with a family Pub across the street. We were able to rest a lot. No street’s sound, just the sound of birds to wake up to... The particular care and attention with a bottle of milk in the refrigerator and of bathrobes were much appreciated. Thanks a lot.. we have not left UK yet to get back to Canada, but we are already planning coming back to The Hayloft over next few years.

    Matt2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Unique and beautifully situated.

    Marion2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is stunning, classic castle gatehouse on the outside, modern and light on the inside. Beautiful clean rooms, with lots of space. well appointed full kitchen. Close to the town with all the restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the free access to Sudeley Castle. We will definitely return and stay here again.

    Phillip2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fabulous stay at the Castle Gatehouse. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and cosy. The Gatehouse itself is very well appointed. We spent a whole day at the castle and grounds which were magnificent. Winchcombe village is a few minutes walk away and has lovely quirky shops and plenty of dining options. There are also supermarkets etc if you need to purchase supplies. Would highly recommend a stay here.

    Anne2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • A most unique place to stay! We absolutely loved the gatehouse and everything that we experienced. Breakfast and evening drinks on the patio, walking into Winchcombe for dinner, and of course, walking the castle grounds. Our stay could not have been more perfect, even the weather cooperated!

    Lisa2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • This is a spectacular property - a real experience. Most fun is the approach, which feels like your own private castle, and the beautiful garden overlooking the castle grounds where we had breakfast every day. We loved how close it was to the shops and restaurants of Winchcombe and how convenient for an array of walks from the doorstep. The kitchen had all mod cons, the living room was cost, and the bed was lovely and comfy. Everything neat and clean. I hope to return.

  • Really more of an experience than just a place to stay. Amazing property just as described. Inside was comfortably furnished with all the amenities. Has a private yard perfectly maintained and sits right on the castle grounds. Couldn't ask for more.

  • We stayed here just for one night for my birthday and it was worth every mile from Colchester! It was so clean and stylish, the hosts were so lovely and quick to reply. They even suggested we go to the Green Dragon for dinner which was lovely! We took a walk in the countryside behind the property which was beautiful! Waking up to the rain on the window, looking out over the hills and countryside was perfect! And to top it all off, their dog that we got to meet was so handsome and friendly! Will definitely be staying again, hopefully for longer!!

  • Perfect place to go if you want the traditional feel of the Cotswolds! Very clean, and had all kitchen amenities and utensils. Couch is comfy and you can look at the beautiful view. Upstairs you can go out onto the porch and it is stunning. Good water pressure, they provided soap. Outside the bedroom window, you also have a gorgeous view of the rolling hills. Lots of natural light that comes in through the windows. It didn’t get too warm inside, but it just added to the traditional feel :) They provided us with fresh milk, which was a nice touch. It was cosy inside with nice decor and some books to read. Thank you!

    Shawna2020-03-07T00:00:00Z

The owners’ grounds cover five acres and guests are welcome to explore the luscious green lawns, woodland footpaths and paddocks at their leisure. Dogs must be kept on a lead when in the paddocks as sheep and chickens graze here. To the far left of Orchard Lodge lies a well-maintained communal garden with a wooden table and chairs, a parasol and three sun loungers which guests are welcome to use.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Really great, clean and homely cottage with very friendly hosts. So much information was provided about local things to do and see. On arrival there was bread, wine, tea and coffee all stocked up, with information about local shops etc. Stunning location to add to it all.

    Bethany2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely wonderful stay at Bramley Cottage. Pete and Liz and so friendly and welcoming. The house is warm, spotless and wonderfully comfortable. The thoughtful touches, flowers, fruit, milk and bread were so kind. Pete and Liz even got a bag of animals ready for our toddler-she had a fantastic time playing with them. Liz very kindly came out to feed Lucy the sheep so our daughter could see her. We highly recommend staying at Bramley cottage. We intend to visit again!

    Rosalind2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

  • This cottage is in such a fantastic location in the Cotswolds. Naunton is right in the centre of everything and if you have a car you can arrive to Bourton-on-the-water in 10 minutes. There are also beautiful walks through the countryside on your doorstep and the town has a wonderful small community feel. The house itself is so quaint. We were there for Christmas and the hosts had left a huge basket of food including chocolates, wine, cheese and bubbly. We would definitely come back! They made us feel so welcome.

    Sam2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Dove cottage. Prosecco and chocolates on arrival was a nice touch. The cottage was very clean and you can see that the host goes to an effort to make it a nice place for visitors to stay in. The village of Naunton was also lovely.

    Emma2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This lovely cottage in beautiful Naunton is a great value and a perfect place to begin exploring the Cotswolds. This cool tiny village has broadband provided by fiber-optic cable. I live in Nashville, TN and I don't have fiber-optic. So needless to say Internet connectivity is fabulous. Loved it.

    Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London. This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible. The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement. One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877. Food & Drink Broadway has a number of places to eat and drink, with a range of cuisines and prices to suit most tastes and budgets. The list below is a sample of the options available: Russell's (www.russellsofbroadway.co.uk): Head Chef, Neil Clarke, serves modern British food in the award-winning restaurant, with local Vale of Evesham and Cotswold produce featuring throughout the daily-changing menus. The modern, airy dining room is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with friendly staff and laid-back service combining to create a relaxed and warm setting, day and night; The Lygon Arms (http://www.thehotelcollection.co.uk/hotels/the-lygon-arms-hotel-cotswolds/): A 17th century minstrel's gallery, a grand open fire and an imposing barrel-vaulted ceiling greet you as you enter The Great Hall, the main dining room of the famous Lygon Arms Hotel. A destination in its own right, people travel miles to enjoy the restaurant's 2 AA Rosettes for excellence sumptuous cuisine and warm friendly service of the highest quality. A few steps across the courtyard, Lukes Bistro offers a relaxing atmosphere serving traditional English cuisine with a contemporary twist, equally as imaginative and as fresh, using ingredients that are grown and reared locally, including a wide range of herbs and plums from the hotel's own orchards; The Potting Shed (www.dormyhouse.co.uk/potting-shed-restaurant): The Potting Shed is everything a Cotswold country dining pub should be. It's relaxed and inviting, with a large leather-and-oak bar and a rustic agenda. This is English pub grub as it ought to be: sticky ribs, great bangers, slow-cooked pork belly and fish that's been caught on our shores. Dress up and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail, or dress down and bring the kids.

    Notgrove Estate is one of the few remaining privately owned Cotswold estates offering 1500 acres of private rolling farmland. We have mapped out walks, around the estate and local area and can recommend longer walks if required.

    The Notgrove Estate is a 1500 acre family run working farm owned by Harry and Diana Acland. Set high up in the Cotswold Hills it has 400 acres of grassland in deep valleys and 100 acres of woodland and rolling arable fields. The farm has a mix of sheep, cattle and arable and has diversified with two horse livery yards and a holiday cottage business. In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds. The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
  • This place is everything you need and more. The pods are adorable and have a lot more room inside than you would think. We stayed for one night but wish we had stayed longer. Definitely order the fire pack if you can, it was pretty windy but we still managed to get the fire pit going and it was such a lovely way to end the evening. We met the owners when having brunch at the onsite café called the Nuttery. The food hit the spot and the staff and the owners were so welcoming and extremely hospitable. Definitely somewhere you will want to go back to in the future, we are already looking to book this place again! Thank you so much again! See you soon!

    Jennifer2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. Pods were a really neat idea. If you like getting away from hotels and fussy check in and check outs this is a good one for you.

    Joe2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely little pod on an equally lovely farm. The weather was cold but the pod was really cosy. We enjoyed walking around the estate and seeing all of the animals.

    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • We had an amazing time and Douglas and Penny are wonderful hosts. The home is beautiful and we were able to do some amazing walks right from the front door. We had everything we needed to cook and visited the local pub where we felt welcome and had a nice meal. Seeing the pheasants in the garden was a nice surprise! Highly recommend!

    Beth2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage, really cosy and full of character. We loved the log fire and thoughtful welcome pack of goodies. Couldn’t fault the location either — great local pub and within easy distance of many quintessential Cotswolds towns. We had an amazing weekend and will definitely be back!

    Alex2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cotagge, very comfortable, impeccable and perfectly equipped. We appreciate all the items for breakfast and cleaning. Property highly recommended.

    Oscar2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing cottage, close to so many beautiful Cotswolds villages. Very clean, comfortable and quiet- had everything we could possibly need! Great pub in village too.

    Maggie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • A great little cottage, perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. Naunton is a cute little village with just a local pub which served great pub food. Loved the little welcome touches such as croissants, bread and jam ;)

    Leo2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, perfect with the log fire in an evening. A great location for neighbouring towns like stow on the wold and boughton on the water and daylesford farm. Wouldn’t hesitate to come back next year, thank you.

    Rebecca2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Penny and Doug are the most delightful hosts; ready to offer advice and help when needed, but not intrusive. Oyster Barn is a spotless, well-equipped, beautifully furnished home-away-from-home perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. We loved the welcome gift of eggs, milk, bread and Penny's home made jam. The Black Horse pub, a 5 minute walk away, offers delicious food and hospitality. We would definitely recommend choosing Oyster Barn and the village of Naunton for your visit to this area!

    Catherine2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • As new inside - great location- fabulous Black Horse Inn a short walk away. 2 bed , 2 bath, plenty of space. Everything very organised. Brilliant hosts. 10/10 , 5 stars!

  • A very cozy, clean place just off the main road. The accommodations were well equipped with any items we needed, extremely clean, and comfortable. It was easy to get our key from the little lockbox and the instructions were crystal clear. We made great use of the local suggestions while we visited. We were able to walk to enjoy a few local pubs, a beautiful church, local coffee shops, and an amazing little local market for food and snacks. Northleach was the quaint, quiet country town that we were looking for and it was very convenient to local attractions such as Sudeley Castle. I hope we are able to stay here again the next time we visit England and the countryside.

    Bonnie2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Bolt Hole is a lovely cottage located in a beautiful part of the country. It had everything we needed with plenty of great pubs and restaurants close by. Communication was quick and there were no issues whatsoever. I would highly recommend staying here.

    Stephen2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at The Bolt Hole! It is in such a brilliant location for exploring areas of the Cotswold. The accommodation has everything you need and is very comfortable and clean - I would highly recommend.

    Sophie2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cosy place to stay. Joyce was very prompt and helpful. So much advice on local walks and places to eat and drink. Absolutely perfect for a weekend away.

    Harry2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you need for a few days in the Cotswolds. Great location for exploring. Plenty of parking on the street. Great kitchen facilities for cooking. Very comfy living and sleeping spaces.

  • Great location with a lovely town square with great cafe pubs and shop would highly recommend for two people

    Alison2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Joyce replied quickly to messages and was accommodating when we had to change the date. We got into the place easily with clear instructions, and we found the place clean, cosy and welcoming. Joyce had even thoughtfully left a bottle of milk and tea and coffee so we were able to have a cup of tea on arrival - the most important thing for a true Brit!!! Thank you for a lovely stay in a beautiful place :)

    St Stephen's Studio is in Tivoli, a popular area in the heart of Cheltenham. It is a self contained studio flat in a grade 2 listed building. Just a 10 min walk into the centre and 10 mins from the train station. An ideal base for Cheltenham festivals or the races. The flat is small but very modern and comfortable. We also have a rather unique Bluetooth fireplace which plays music and makes it warm and cosy!
    St Stephen's Studio is suitable for 2 guests.
    The flat is close to the town centre and also the train station. It is ideal for horse racing but especially convenient for festivals.
  • Great accommodation friendly hosts and clean comfortable place to stay, cant go wrong.

    Charlie2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thoroughly recommended. Nice accommodation in a quiet location but centrally located.

    Agnieszka2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a lovely place to stay not too far from town and amazing value for money. Will defiantly come again.

    Charlie2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • So accommodating with my arrival time. The place was modern, clean and tidy. Had everything I needed for my short stay. Location was great too. Will definitely book again.

    Joanne2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy studio flat, much warmer than expected and sofa bed surprisingly comfortable. Wendy was quick to reply to my messages and really helpful, would book again

    Vicky2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy's place is a great option for solo travellers wanting to take refuge in the quieter but more residential part of town. Plenty of fun, food and drinks are available not far from the apartment and the centre of town not much further than that. The flat itself is cosy and has all the amenities you could ever want, with helpful guides and information available to ensure smooth running. The fireplace doubling as a speaker is also a nice touch.

    Lysander2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Small and cosy but great value for money with a very helpful host!

    Euan2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you both for such an amazing stay. There were so many thoughtful touches! The place was great! As someone that comes to Cheltenham quite often I wouldn't want to stay anywhere but here! Will be back! Love to you both - thank you for everything 💕

    Welcome to Miller's Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish, Cotswold holiday rentals. Miller’s Cottage is one of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages in the heart of Winchcombe, an ancient Saxon town situated on the famous Cotswold Way. Boasting a thriving local community, the town offers excellent amenities, with independent shops, several pubs and even a Michelin starred restaurant. With an abundance of local walking and cycling trails, plus places of historical interest, including Sudeley Castle, Winchcombe has plenty to keep visitors occupied. The town is also within easy reach of the many charming market towns and villages of the Cotswolds, guests can ride the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Steam Railway directly to Cheltenham, and the beautiful cities of Bath and Oxford are easily accessible for day trips. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    From the pavement, three stone steps lead up to the front door of Miller’s Cottage, which opens into the entrance hall. This in turn leads into the following ground floor rooms: Living room: This is a stunning room, with exposed Cotswold stone walls, a flagstone floor, oak beams, and a large inglenook fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is a three-seater sofa and arm chair, plus a Freeview TV and DVD player, with well stocked book shelves offering a selection of games and DVDs; Dining area: Two steps lead up from the living room to the dining area, which is partially separated from the living room by the TV, which can be rotated to allow it to be viewed from either room. This lovely space has the same character features as the living room, including a second fireplace with a wood burning stove. There is an oak dining table that comfortably seats four people, and a stylish sideboard provides storage space and houses a DAB radio with Bluetooth speaker and iPod docking station; Kitchen: Behind the dining room, the well presented kitchen contains an electric oven, four-ring gas hob, slimline dishwasher, combined washing machine and tumble dryer, microwave, kettle and toaster. There is also a Nespresso coffee machine (pods are not included); Boot room: Accessed via the kitchen, this useful space leads directly into the garden and is ideal for storing coats and boots. It contains an American-style fridge freezer and a wooden bench. Stairs lead up from the entrance hall to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Bedroom 1: A beautiful room, tastefully decorated in a contemporary style, which contains a king size bed, dressing table and vanity mirror, plus a fitted wardrobe; Bedroom 2: Overlooking the garden, this lovely bedroom contains either two single beds or a super king size bed.

There is a summer house at the end of the garden, which is available to store bicycles. The cottage has an allocated parking space a short walk away and further on street parking is available in the town.
    Set above the River Isbourne, Winchcombe is arguably the hidden jewel in the Cotswolds crown. The town became prosperous from its Abbey (one of the largest Benedictine monasteries in England), its wool trade and as a producer of tobacco. Although the Abbey has gone there is still much to see of historic Winchcombe and the wealth of the town is reflected in many of the buildings, as well as in the surrounding countryside. No visit to Winchcombe would be complete without seeing four of the most prestigious historical sites in the area. Sudeley Castle (home of Queen Katherine Parr up to her death in 1548), Hailes Abbey (a Cistercian House founded in 1246 and owned by English Heritage), Stanway House (a Jacobean manor house with a world-famous fountain) and Belas Knap (a Neolithic long barrow dating from approximately 3800 BC) all offer a fascinating insight into the life of our ancestors. Known as the walking capital of the Cotswolds, Winchcombe sits at the intersection of the Cotswold Way, the Gloucestershire Way, the Wardens Way, the Windrush Way and the new Winchcombe Way. Alternatively, the GWR Steam Railway provides a fantastic fun day out for the family, running from Toddington through Winchcombe to Cheltenham Racecourse. Winchcombe has a mouthwatering selection of top quality restaurants, a wine bar, pubs, tea shops and a contemporary delicatessen/coffee shop. So whether you want a quick snack or a leisurely meal you'll be spoilt for choice. With a vibrant Music & Arts Festival in May/June, a Country Show in August and a Christmas Festival in December, Winchcombe also has a busy cultural calendar. Food & Drink Winchcombe is fortunate to be blessed with a variety of places to eat and drink, with the following being just a selection of the options available: Restaurant 5 North Street (www.5northstreetrestaurant.co.uk): A small family run Michelin starred restaurant. The cooking at North Street brings together the elements of traditional British cooking with the more sophisticated ingredients and techniques of classic French cuisine; Wesley House (www.wesleyhouse.co.uk): Set in a 15th century Merchant's House, Wesley House's restaurant has been awarded an AA two star rosette and has developed a reputation for excellent food, elegant surroundings and exemplary service. The vibrant Wine Bar & Grill offers a lively atmosphere, with an extensive cellar and delicious dishes in a relaxed setting; Wine and Sausage at The White Hart Inn (http://wineandsausage.whitehartwinchcombe.co.uk): The White Hart Inn is a charming 16th Century inn, with the Wine & Sausage Restaurant at its heart. Open daily for breakfast, morning coffee & cakes, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner and bar snacks.
  • This is a lovely cottage,the living space downstairs is particularly lovely,the wood burning stove was really wonderful.

    Ilona2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage, super clean with a lovely garden. Gorgeous spacious bedrooms, comfy beds! Bathroom is gorgeous & so clean as was kitchen. Perfect location for exploring Winchcombe. Sofa is quite small in the living area for 4 people but perfect for 2. Private parking space near the property is great as parking can be tricky in the village. Can’t wait to come back!

    Amy2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little place in Winchcombe which acts as a great base for exploring the Cotswolds. Owner was very responsive to questions we had. We had our 10 month old baby with us which was great although the hard stone floors downstairs did mean we had to keep a more careful eye on him rather than let him crawl on his own. Thoroughly recommend overall.

    Simon2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • A truly wonder character cottage in the heart of town. Ok, so parking for 1 car is 3 mins walk away - but you can quickly unload outside the house. So not a big deal. Any additional cars will need to go in the long stay (£1 per day. About 5 min walk). Lots of internal steps - so not somewhere for someone with mobility issues - but we absolutely loved it and wouldn’t stop us from recommending. Low doors - banged our heads - but again, isn’t that part of the charm!? For those with dogs - the back garden is enclosed - so no need to worry about escapees! Albeit when returning from a walk you do need to carry your muddy pooch through the front door and out of the side door and up the steps to access the garden (where there is a hose to shower them down). Other thing of note/warning to dog owners - the only “enclosed” area on the ground floor is the boot room to the rear - but this is cold with no heating - so not suitable for a dog in winter if there are any issues with house training....not applicable to us - but thought it worthy of note. Log burners were delightful. Only had 6-8 logs provided for our 3 day stay - but had seen other reviews so took plenty with us. All facilities were great (note there is not an electric shaving/toothbrush point - so go with them fully charged). Lovely decor, nice and clean! Literally have nothing negative to say. We really hope to return as we barely scratched the surface of local walks (but well done us - we did manage to try all the pubs - very nice!)

    Laura2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Millers Cottage is a beautiful property in an amazing location. Our whole trip was beyond our expectations and we will definitely be returning. Throughout the trip the communication was exceptional, there’s not a single thing we would have changed.

    Ben2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Miller's Cottage is a fine choice in Winchcombe -- well-located and equipped, quiet, and with responsive and considerate owners.

    Thomas2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

It would suit a couple who wants privacy or someone who would like a longer stay in Cheltenham in particular as it is self contained, by arrangement it can be rented as part of the main house also which has a further two bedrooms, two reception rooms, full kitchen and family bathroom. As much or as little as they require. Some of my guests prefer their privacy, others want company. I have gone out for dinner or coffee with some guests and invited them to come along with me to events in The Cotswolds and other guests prefer their privacy which is highly respected. It is completely down to you the guest. The proximity to the town centre and everything it has to offer whilst having the added bonus of being on a quiet street. The character features of the house and it's sunny south facing position. A beautiful walled South facing garden coneye with pond, fish, ducks, wisteria, plum trees, decking, smoking area and sunbathing area and outdoor glass covered living/dining room. You could not ask for a better location for access to town. It's a one minute walk. Also a very private and quiet location. We are in the town centre. There are plenty of local buses and the train station. The nearest airports are Birmingham, Bristol and Cardiff. I have a small and friendly dog who is allergy tolerant as he does not malt No children under the age of five No smoking indoors No smoking indoors, however there is a nice seating area in the garden designated for smoking. We can organise a " welcome" food hamper for your arrival, just let us know what you will need and it will be waiting for you. Please note we only supply washing powder for a few washes for the washing machine. We do allow pets by prior arrangement. From the 10-16th of March the price of the room is higher than normal as I have to stay outside of the Cotswolds as the hotels/ rooms are all fully booked and very pricey. To cover my costs I have to raise the price for me to travel elsewhere and stay in a hotel myself and board my dog. However I try to keep prices reasonable to simply cover my overheads and not charge the silly prices that most accommodation establishments charge at this very busy time in Cheltenham. For the dates 10-16th of march inclusive the self contained annexe, complete with en suite bathroom, kitchenette, private entrance and private garden, tv and wifi, within a 10 minute walk must be booked in their entirety for the entire races week. You are getting your own mini cottage with all amenities within a short walk to the races. The holiday inn ( also near the racecourse ) is charging £450 a night. ( parking is extra) for a standard room on the same dates and lacks the privacy, charm and character of the cottage with free parking thrown in.

  • A real hidden gem. Lyra goes to huge lengths to personalise your welcome and make sure you have everything you need upon arrival. A great place to snuggle up for the evening after a long day. Very well located for the brewery end of the high street. Can't wait to stay again.

    Paul2018-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lyra’s home is such an inspiring place. The Nest is a cosy little pad with quirky interior details some great amenities and a super comfy bed. So comfy, I found it very difficult up from it. I really enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend it.

    Shepherds View is a brand new Shepherds Hut with one double bedroom, shower room, toilet, microwave, sink and hob. Outside there is a decking area with table,chairs and bbq. It is set in glorious countryside with it's own parking
  • We came for a weekend stay, prior to this we said we probably would need a late check in so Linda left the key on the table for us. Upon arriving there were some little jams, milk in the fridge and some chocolate bars which was a lovely touch. Communication was great, Linda told us some lovely places to see and eat. The cabin itself is so cute and cosy and was just what we wanted, the horse fields surrounding it was amazing, waking up and looking out the window to horses was so lovely. It’s about an 8 minute drive to a lovely village with plenty of places to eat however you have a hob and microwave you can cook in. Highly recommend this place. I saw Linda before leaving and she showed me the horses in the stable after learning I was horse mad.

    Tasha2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second stay at the hut and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time round. Great location and beautiful grounds. Thanks very much to Linda for a very enjoyable stay!

    Nicole2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time in Naunton, the cabin is super cute and the local pub (the black horse) had amazing staff and food. All the local horse trainers drink in their too so if that's your thing, and maybe want to pick up tip or too this is the spot for you!

    Matthew2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Incredibly clean and cosy. Linda was very helpful. Great for a quiet getaway

    Daniel2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic stay. Had to be cut short due to weather and Linda was understanding and has messaged me privately on the matter. Amazing little glamping style hut that I would highly recommend

    Edward2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described 🙂

    Felicity2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed a lovely couples holiday in this shepherd's hut. It is cosy and clean, and the pictures do it justice. The location was excellent for being able to visit all of the prettiest towns and villages within half an hour's drive. The hut was nice and private, with a lovely view of the fields. We had everything we could have needed in the hut, including a hot water bottle, extra blanket, and even a bottle of milk in the fridge for tea and coffee. It may be small, but we still had enough space for the two of us to move around in without getting in each others way. I highly recommend this for couples looking for a quiet getaway.

    Rosie2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • The shepherd's hut was a fantastic place to stay for our weekend in the Cotswolds! It has loads of character and is very cosy, with a comfortable bed and everything we needed for a comfortable weekend stay - even though we picked the weekend of Storm Dennis to visit! Lovely views and a peaceful location. It's a great base for exploring the surrounding countryside and the local pub (10 minutes walk) was cosy and served tasty food and drinks. We would definitely come back!

There are many beautiful walks accessible directly from the cottage, including a lovely mile long walk through the fields to the pretty market town of Northleach, which has a well-regarded pub and a number of shops. Hampnett is in the heart of the Cotswolds, and is within easy reach of the many beautiful towns and villages of the region, as well as being perfectly placed for exploring many other popular destinations, including Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. London is also easily accessible for a day trip.

    Willow Cottage is one of a short row of cottages located on a quiet lane, surrounded by lovely countryside. The front door opens into a small porch area, with the following rooms on the ground floor: Living room: This large room has been beautifully furnished, with stylish sofas and chairs complemented by various antique pieces, plus a feature stone fireplace with wood burning stove and alcove book cases on either side. There is a three-seater sofa, two matching arm chairs and a leather wingback arm chair, plus a 60" Smart cinema TV, with Apple TV box and Roku streaming for Amazon Prime, as well as a Sonos surround sound system; Kitchen/dining room: Steps lead up from the living room into the stylish kitchen, which contains a two-oven electric Rangemaster with a grill and six ring electric hob, a fridge, freezer, dishwasher, kettle, toaster, Kitchen Aid and Nespresso coffee machine (pods not included). There is a large wooden dining table in the centre of the room, which comfortably seats four, and a lovely Welsh dresser. The kitchen looks out over the back garden and has a door leading outside; Utility room: Accessed from the kitchen, this convenient room contains a microwave, washing machine, tumble dryer, food mixer and juicer; Stairs lead up from the kitchen to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master Bedroom: Steps lead up to this stylish room, which overlooks the garden, and contains a king size bed.

At the front of the cottage is a small garden with a wooden bench, and also at the front there is a parking bay, with space for one car.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Great place set away from traffic. But still pretty close to the main road. Looks quaint outside, but very well done inside with all the amenities you could want.

    Hamza2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is steeped in character, lovingly furnished, and super cosy. It had two well appointed bedrooms and bathrooms, and as two couples travelling we had plenty of room. We enjoyed walks directly from the property and would definitely recommend it for a quintessential stay in the Cotswolds.

    Emma2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We have stayed in this gem of a cottage before so I knew our stay would be a very comfortable one. The cottage is deceptively spacious and very welcoming. It would be my ‘go to’ cottage booking in the Cotswolds.

    Lj2019-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for families. Quite , well located.

    Kim2018-10-04T00:00:00Z

    Marco2018-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful cottage in a beautiful village. Very peaceful and cosy.

    Lj2018-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Willow Cottage exceeds expectations - it's a perfectly gorgeous gem of a Cotswold cottage in a picturesque village - really just a church and a handful of homes. The pastoral surroundings and the cottage itself could not have been more lovely. Thank you for being the anchor of our stay and we''ll look forward to a return visit.

    This apartment is within walking distance of the town centre and even closer to the new Brewery complex which offers bars restaurants and a cinema . You’ll love my place because it is self contained and fully kitted out with everything you'll hopefully need for your stay. It's good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers.

    ** I always clean the shepherd hut with antibacterial solutions anyway, but in the current situation with Covid-19, I am also now leaving the shepherd hut empty for at least 72 hours between bookings, allowing for a period of time to deep clean and to reduce any spread of the infection. I hope these are words of reassurance. Kind regards ** Our lovely self-contained Shepherd Hut is fully equipped with a comfortable double bed which easily converts into a relaxing seating area with TV and optional dining table. An oil-filled wall mounted radiator warms the Hut and keeps it cosy all year round.

The hut is set in a beautiful half-acre wild flower paddock where you are free to wander. In summer a BBQ is available for your own personal use and sun loungers available on request! The Shepherd Hut is located in an elevated position within our large part-walled paddock. From here you can appreciate extensive Cotswold hillside views towards Cleeve Hill and Winchcombe. The area is neatly mown around the Shepherd Hut, with some newly sown wild flower areas. The immediate locality is abundant with wildlife including roe deer and muntjac. Sheep and cattle graze in the fields nearby.

    Hannah2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed for a weekend to get away from ‘reality’ and the shepherds hut certainly delivered beyond my expectations. The space was clean and tidy with all the little things you would need for a short stay. The bed was comfortable and the finishing touches throughout were thoughtful. I would highly recommend staying here and would do so again in the future to visit more of the areas I didn’t get round to this weekend! Kate was quick to respond to any questions I had and very helpful!

    Noemi2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

  • Lesley’s guest suite was charming and cosy. It had everything we needed, along with lovely little touches such as duck eggs from the farm & bread, butter, jam, milk, tea & coffee etc. There’s lots of leaflets of things to do in the Cotswolds, along with a helpful document with local supermarkets etc. The guest suite was easy to get to and had lovely views.

    Double bedroom overlooking quiet garden. We are approximately 25 minutes walk away from the bus station, and 45 minutes walk away from the train station. Busses are rare; so we would suggest taking a taxi, especially if you have luggage. Unfortunately we do not offer breakfast.
  • It was great to stay at Andrew & Suz's place for the Cheltenham festival. Lovely clean place in great location made our trip very pleasant.

    Darragh2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Room was immaculate and very comfy, which was greatly appreciated following my operation. The bathroom was also very clean, and the hosts were extremely friendly and helpful wherever they could be. The dogs were lovely too, so couldn’t recommend this place more!

    Nicolas2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • I absolutely recommend this lovely house. I wasn't able to see Andrew & Suz, who had such a good accommodation, good conditions, cleanliness and a great host as I was on Airbnb. The best experience is at Cheltenham. I am traveling to England with my father and it's perfect. You can expect. Really nice and nice. It's an environment that feels good. At night, he went to Andrew and Pub to watch his performances and bought beer. Close to the Cotswolds, you can get around the Cotswolds by bus if you are in the crowd. Thank you for staying at such a nice property. Andrew & Suz thank you very much. Have a nice day :)

Bordered by a Cotswold stone wall and mostly gravelled, the garden includes a raised patio area with a table and four chairs, and an elegant wrought iron garden bench. There is also a stone bench at the front of the cottage, which catches the afternoon sun. Free parking is usually available for one car at the end of the quiet lane adjacent to the row of cottages.
    Broadway is a beautiful village in the North Cotswolds, steeped in history and surrounded by stunning countryside. The village gets its name from the wide street, or broad way, that runs through the centre which was once the main road from Worcester to London. This attractive High Street is bordered with chestnut trees and honey coloured stone cottages dating from the 16th century and is one of the most picturesque villages of the Cotswolds. The broad way is thought to be especially wide because at one time there used to be streams running each side of the main drive. These streams were eventually hidden in underground pipes where they would emerge at 'dipping' points, but sadly they are now almost completely invisible. The village has artistic links with famous dwellers including J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson and William Morris, who were drawn to the tranquillity of Broadway. It was here that Morris and John Ruskin pioneered the idea of the Arts and Crafts Movement which made its home in the area and went on to be an international movement. One of the iconic features of the village is Broadway Tower which was built in the late 18th century by the Earl of Coventry. It is said that the tower was erected so that the Countess could see if her Cotswold estate was visible from Croome Court in Worcestershire, which it was. The folly stands some 1,024 feet above sea level, making it the second highest point in the Cotswolds after Cleeve Hill. In fact, on a clear day, visitors are able to see 14 counties from the top! William Morris was so taken by the tower that he went on to establish the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings in 1877.
  • Lovely warm and cosy cottage. Even in the middle of December we were warm and toasty with the log burner, piping hot showers and lovely bedding. Perfect location for pottering around Broadway with its beautiful Christmassy atmosphere and wonderful places to eat and drink.

  • Great place to stay for walks on Cleeve Common, good location with everything you need there and friendly hosts. Would recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Cotswolds

    Nick2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! A huge thanks to Jenny for having us this weekend when she clearly had lots of other things going on. Sadly we didn't get to meet Tony but Jenny made sure we were all set up and was incredibly welcoming. The Posh Shed was sparkling clean when we arrived, everything you could want (and more) was available and the local area is lovely. We booked last minute and did not regret... we had a lovely weekend and stay and will definitely be back in the summer to enjoy some sunshine! If I could give 12/10 as my rating I would!

    Jade2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is the 2nd time I have stayed in the posh shed and it was just as good as I remember. Tony and Jenny are excellent hosts and the full cooked breakfast was lovely!

    Claire2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Posh Shed is great...the perfect place to stay in a lovely part of the world. Tony and Jenny were great hosts, def say yes to the breakfast. Would certainly stay again. Highly recommended.

    Edward2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • We booked to stay in the 'Posh Shed' as we had an event at Cheltenham Racecourse. In the first instance it was the location that attracted us but very quickly we realised that Tony and Jenny have created a very 'special' place to offer on Airbnb. Unique in its design and clever in how stylish the space has been furnished. There are so many thoughtful touches that make it too long to list in this review..... I suggest that you book a stay and discover them for yourself. Tony is a very welcoming host and together with Jenny they are very giving people - no request is too much and they go out of their way to make sure you have everything that you need. We found the accommodation spacious, warm, welcoming and clean plus it represents exceptional value for money. 5* from us.

    Mike & Rosie2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a little (or not so little) Gem in a beautiful location. The accommodation is great, providing everything you could possibly need. The hosts are extremely friendly and nothing is too much. If you like a hearty warm breakfast my son and I can certainly recommend Jenny's cooked breakfast! Will certainly be returning.

    A pretty and private little Cotswold stone bakehouse converted to a bedroom and shower room with beautiful Cotswold views set in rolling farmland on edge of historic hamlet of Hailes. We are right on the Cotswold Way and an ideal stop off after the first leg or walk the myriad of footpaths around us straight from the door. Within easy access of Cheltenham racecourse and the lovely villages of the Cotswolds, the many country pubs or a visit to the amazing Giffords Circus.
    The Bakehouse is certainly unique, a quirky ensuite bedroom in the garden, pretty and very comfortable! Set in rolling farmland , this is a rural location with views up to Hailes Wood. The Bakehouse was constructed of beautiful hand cut Cotswold stone on the early 1800's with old hand split roof tiles. Originally used to house the bread ovens for the cottages, the coal house and the privy ! We have furnished the Bakehouse with vintage furniture to create a really attractive individual space with the things I like to find when I go away....white Egyptian cotton bed linen, large fluffy towels, fresh milk, a teapot! some homemade cake, interesting books... Please look at the Overview for my suggestions for your visit Double bed, shower room and sitting space.( please note there is no kitchen) Fresh for 2020 Complete shower room refurbishment A lick of paint all over New carpet New mattress New more private entrance with a stable door overlooking the view Breakfast is not included...we suggest Hayles fruit farm ( see our map) which is a stroll away or Winchcombe has lots of choices
    We are located on the edge of the north Cotswolds near the very pretty villages of Stanton, Wood Stanway, Broadway and the small historic town of Winchcombe. Cheltenham racecourse is a 10 minute drive . Sudeley Castle (where Catherine Parr lived ) is 5 mins drive away, or a 3 mile walk! We are right on the Cotswold Way trail, head either NE to chipping Camden or SW to winchcombe. The fascinating ruins of Hailes Abbey (1246 AD) are a 5 min walk away, falling into disrepair after the dissolution of the Monasteries. Legend has it that Thomas Cromwell watched the Abbey from a hill veiwpoint ( Cromwell's Clump please see photo) now on the Cotswold Way. Opposite the Abbey is the pretty Hailes church with stunning medieval wall paintings revealed in the 1970's Suggestions.. 1. An early evening walk on the Cotswold way for 2.5 miles to Winchcombe, eat at the Lion on North street or the White Hart on Hailes Street, Taylor's taxis back. 2. Walk over hills through Hailes wood and Guiting woods to the Pub..... The Half Way House At Kineton..5 miles. 3. Pick up the steam train at the Hayles Halt and see the scenery in comfort, the train now goes to Broadway and it’s a lovely walk back. 4. Visit Hidcote and Kiftsgate gardens , stop in beautiful chipping campden on way back 5. Drive through Didbrook, Wood Stanway, and Stanton villages. Stop for coffee in gorgeous Buckland village at Buckland Manor Hotel. ( pop into Buckland church to see the painted beams) Drive on to Broadway and Wander Broadway's high street, have lunch in the bar at The Broadway Hotel. Drive up the hill and visit Snowshill Manor and see its extraordinary collections. 6. Wander around Hailes, coffee at Friut Farm Cafe, look around Hailes Abbey and Hailes Church. Wander the footpaths up into Hailes wood to see Farmcote church and the beautiful views over the valley from there hike up to Cromwells Clump! 7. Visit world famous Giffords Circus, a traditional 1930's feelgood experience, eat at circus sauce for some serious fun with the performers! 8. Ride the lovely horses from Stanton ( Jill Carenza Equestrian) over the Cotswold hills, the views are spectacular. Have a drink and relax and look over the valley from The Mount at Stanton afterwards. 9. Drive over the hill to Sudeley Castle ( turn left out of our drive and follow salters lane up the steep hill, looking right over the valley at the castle) and visit the house and gardens, lunch in Winchcombe at The Lion or Food Fanatics deli."
  • Kathy’s place was perfect for a weekend in the Cotswolds. The cottage was very clean and tidy, with lovely views, brilliantly located just off the Cotswold way. Couldn’t recommend it enough. Thank you Kathy

    Will2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Charming little place in a lovely area. Thank you for your hospitality.

    Robert2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Let me tell you ! this place was a gem. My sister and I still feel lucky to have found this air bnb. First, the place was easy to find...well thanks to our taxi Guy.. You just have to tell the taxi person that it's on the way to Hailes abbey passing the train track (Kathy will send you a guide to find the house). The place was just absolutely beautiful. The b&b is at the back (guest house) of the owner's place. We got there at like 2am so we couldn't see how beautiful the surroundings were (although we did see so many stars!). We woke up to the green back yard and the nice breeze in the morning through the windows. We were there end of august so it was a bit cold but their heating system worked really well to our likings! Kathy and her family members were all so nice and generous, We were so lucky to meet them and get to know them as well at another level! My sister and I walked to the hailes abbey and the walk to it was just absolutely stunning ... make sure to try the blueberries on the side.. SERIOUSLY SO GOOD. but don't eat too much of it.. lol Unfortunately we stayed there for 2 nights only, I would definitely be back there to see more of cotswold. I wish I can post up pictures that my sister and I took at their backyard since it was picture perfect ! One thing I do really care about it the cleanliness of the bathroom and theirs was sparkling clean!! Gosh, I wish I was back there. Note: no separate room .. it's just a guest house... the train station cheltenham station was like 13 minutes away from the bnb by taxi.

    Eugina2019-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful stay in beautiful surroundings and a very comfortable little home.

    Rob2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • The Bakehouse is a beautifully quaint little getaway. The views of the fields and farmland were serene. We thoroughly enjoyed the location as there was a lovely walk to Winchcombe through the farms and a short walk to the forest. The accommodation was exactly what my wife and I wanted. A quiet little house in the country away from the city. The amenities were great and we had everything that we needed. I highly recommend the Bakehouse.

  • We stayed here following a day at Cheltenham Festival and we were not disappointed! We loved the studio with its modern looks and superb views of the surrounding countryside - The perfect place for a couples weekend away. The host, Nicki, was very accommodating and couldn’t do enough to make our stay perfect. Nicki even dropped us to the racecourse on our arrival, which was much appreciated on a busy Gold Cup Day. We would highly recommend and will hopefully be returning again next year.

    Luke2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Joseph2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you book with Nicki, you won’t regret it! It was my first time booking with Air B and B, and was a little nervous with what to expect. But she was fab! Offered us an alcoholic beverage on arrival and gave plenty of info on things to do around the area. She’d also left us bread, cereal, milk and orange juice for breakfast, which was great! The apartment was beautiful and just perfect for what we were looking for. Thank you again Nicki!!

    Amy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Nicki was an excellent host - considering she had to stand on the side of the road in the rain with a torch to help us find the right house, she would have been forgiven for being a bit off with us! She wasn't at all however and, after showing us around the gorgeous studio, gave us a bottle of wine to enjoy on our first night. Had a wonderful stay (despite Storm Dennis) and would recommend to anyone wanting a weekend away.

    Ami2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely studio, easily one of the best we have ever stayed in. Really thoughtful touches made our stay lovely, DVDs and a games compendium! Really well located for exploring the cotswolds and the Malvern hills. Lots of national trust places around. Would happily visit again!

    Joseph2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Nicki and the studio are lovely! Very responsive and attentive, with lovely touches of detail. Great shower with hot water and comfy bed. Overall a great experience and would definitely stay again!

    Pari2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Spent a wonderful weekend in this delightful space! It was exactly what myself and my partner were looking for. Located perfectly with great links it really does tick all the boxes. Hosts were fantastic and accommodated is so well and loved the personal touches they put in place.

It is in a great location for the local area and has everything you need for a very comfortable stay, plus Nikki is a lovely host and very helpful!
