    We stayed for 7 nights with our 2 young children in the beautiful town of Winchombe. We'd definitely stay here again. The cottage is renevated really nicely and the kitchen diner area is so nice. Be sure to bring bun bags, dishwasher tablets etc. There were some issues, there were quite a lot of dog hairs and clothes were covered. The lights in living room flash non stop. Parking is an issue, be prepared to have to pay £4 per day to park in short stay a few minutes away. All minor issues for us and overall everything with excellent. Thank you so much for a great holiday.

The property

Abbots Cottage is a beautifully presented Grade II listed property which sleeps four guests, in two stylish bedrooms, with a modern family bathroom.

Dating back to the 17th century, this wonderful home away from home retains a traditional façade and a wealth of character features including a lovely inglenook fireplace with a cosy wood burning stove in the living room.

Limestone flooring, exposed beams and exposed stone walls have been beautifully complemented by contemporary interiors and modern facilities, such as wireless internet access, a Smart TV with an Amazon Prime and Netflix's subscription and a well-equipped kitchen.

The enclosed terrace provides a tranquil setting for al fresco dining, and free on-street parking is readily available close by.

Abbots Cottage is situated in the heart of the vibrant market town of Winchcombe, an ancient Saxon settlement known as the walking capital of the Cotswolds.

The town benefits from a variety of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, and also plays host to many regular events, ranging from open gardens and tea dances to festivals and fundraisers.

As well as eateries and events, it is also home to popular tourist attractions including the historic Sudeley Castle and the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway which makes a stop in Winchcombe to pick up passengers on its 28-mile round trip.

Winchcombe is surrounded by breathtaking countryside with a vast number of walks and cycle routes on its doorstep to discover.

The renowned Cotswold Way long distance walking trail passes through the town and features on many circular walks in the area, including an energetic hike up to Belas Knap, a Neolithic long barrow managed by English Heritage.

It is also well placed for exploring the many other picturesque towns and villages of the North Cotswolds such as Cheltenham, Chipping Campden, Broadway and Snowshill, the latter being home to Snowshill Manor and the Lavender Fields, a must see in the summer months.

Further afield destinations such as Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford are easily accessible for day trips.

About the location


Cheltenham 8 miles; Broadway 9 miles; Gloucester 17 miles.

The bustling Fairtrade town of Winchcombe, a conservation site, lies above the River Isbourne, midway between Cheltenham and Broadway. Visitors can sample a mouthwatering array of local produce in the town's restaurants, wine bars, tea shops and deli's, or stroll around the eclectic range of local shops, all located along the three main streets, which remain full of character with their honey coloured stone and timbered exterior. The town also plays host to music and arts festivals, country shows and farmers’ markets. Guided walks around the town are on offer throughout the summer months, while Winchcombe lies on the intersection of the Cotswold Way, Gloucestershire Way, Warden's Way and Windrush Way, providing ample walking to suit all abilities. The quintessential English village of Broadway is just a short drive away and offers individual shops and boutiques, art galleries, restaurants and hotels, including the world-renowned Lygon Arms, popular for centuries and now offering spa facilities. The regency spa town of Cheltenham boasts beautiful Georgian architecture and a delightful range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions, including the famous racecourse. Many unspoilt Cotswold towns and villages lie to the east, whilst to the west is the waterfront city of Gloucester and the magnificent Royal Forest of Dean. The beautiful World Heritage city of Bath, Shakespeare's birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon, and Warwick, with its magnificent castle, are all within an hour’s drive.
