    “This is an absolutely beautiful cottage.”

    We loved our stay. It is so well located, spacious, with amazing facilities. You had thought of everything to make it a perfect stay! Thank you for all the lovely treats. It was so peaceful and a perfect place to switch off and reconnect as a family. We will definitely be back and for longer next time!

About the location

MICKLETON, GLOUCESTERSHIRE

Chipping Campden 3.5 miles; Shipston-on-Stour 8 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 8.5 miles.

The charming village of Mickleton in Gloucestershire lies on the western edge of the Cotswolds Hills, close to the borders of Warwickshire and Worcestershire. Boasting many attractive black and white buildings, Mickleton offers a good selection of village amenities including a well-stocked shop, farm shops offering a taste of the area and two traditional pubs. Mickleton village is home to the famous Pudding Club at the Three Ways House Hotel, Definitely worth booking ahead for a full on 'Pudding Club experience'. Mickleton lies just south of the infamous Meon Hill, said to have inspired Tolkien's Weathertop from The Lord of the Rings. The small market town of Chipping Campden is close by, boasting an elegant terraced high street dating back to the 14th century. Here you can discover old inns, specialist shops, tea rooms and a splendid 17th century market hall. Also nearby is Shipston-on-Stour with its magnificent 17th century church. Stratford-upon-Avon can be reached within a pleasant drive, and is alive with character with its famous theatre, medieval buildings, cafes, charming riverside walks and boating trips. The magnificent medieval castle at Warwick makes a great day out for all the family, or why not visit the National Trust house at Charlecote Park with its graceful gardens, intriguing maze and deer park? Many unspoilt Cotswold towns and villages are dotted about this wonderful rural area, making Mickleton a superb holiday destination at any time of year.

Note: For the comfort of future guests, please ensure that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Note: An initial supply of logs is usually provided for the woodburning stove and further supplies can be purchased locally, though please note that the initial supply of logs is normally available, however, on rare occasions, there may be situations when the previous guests have used up all the logs and the log supply cannot be replenished immediately.

Note: We are not permitted to provide candles or tea lights and we are required to prohibit their use by guests.

Note: No smoking, vaping or use of e-cigarettes including in the front courtyard garden and small outside area to the rear due to the cottage’s exposed timber frame.
