Map & Local Information

Mad Molly's, sits right in the heart of Winchcombe, a true gem of a Cotswolds' town. It's truly historic and has a wealth of places to visit and enjoy. We've often found that Winchcombe surprises us each time we visit and can sometimes be overlooked as a place to visit. Well we say it is definitely worth coming to. Packed with beautiful architecture it is a place where time has stood still, where wonky buildings and cute alley ways with hidden shops are everywhere. Perhaps most famous is the Sudeley Castle a fine historic house with beautiful gardens and something we'd certainly say is a worthwhile visit - it's about 5 mins away after all.. The castle's most famous resident was Katherine Parr, Henry VIII's sixth wife, who is buried at the chapel. More recently it is used for weddings for the famous!

Winchcombe is ideally located for walking the Cotswold Way with routes varing from undulating tracks to quiet out-of-town circular routes, in fact Winchcombe has its own walking festival every year! One of the team here at Manor Cottages believes that the walks around here and especially those 'behind' Sudeley Castle and towards Brockhampton are amongst the finest in the Cotswolds. It really is spectacular here. If you decide to bring your bike, you will be rewarded if you take some of the little lanes along side the Cotswold hills - especially the one up Cleeve Hill (into Cheltenham) which has a spectacular view towards the Racecourse.

Cheltenham Spa town is approx 10/15 mins drive away where there is a wealth of places to visit and shop. The Literary is and annual event and which is now world renowned. Montpellier is particularly attractive. Cheltenham Racecourse, of course, is one of the biggest draws to the area and region. The world famous Cheltenham Festival incl the Gold Cup is literally just up the road from Winchcombe and while this is the biggest event of the year in horse racing (arguably), there are a regular number of racing events through the year that the keenest racing fanatic will enjoy. Plus many, many antique fairs too.

In terms of other tings to do how about Cotswold Farm Park approx a 15 min drive from Winchcombe which is run by BBC countryfile presenter Adam Henson.This is a wonderful day out for adults and children with over 50 flocks and herds of rare breed farm animals. Winchcombe Pottery all of the pottery is available from the factory shop is within walking distance. Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway have a station at Winchcombe. The steam trains run to Cheltenham racecourse and Toddington. Thomas the Tank engine has been known to visit. A great day out for all the family.

Prescott Hill Climb is a 10 minute drive from Winchcombe and is the home of The Bugatti Owners Club and one of the worlds most prestigious racing venues.

"Lovely cottage, very good use of space. Nicely appointed. Only thing missing was some outdoor space."
Star Star Star Star Star young 2017-09-06
"Cottage was great. Wondered if there might be a way to call attention to the two steps leading into kitchen, slightly dangerous because they are so unexpected. It was pretty noisy on bull's lane with people walking back and forth from pub, but I'm not sure there is anything to be done about that. Good water pressure, great showers, nice kitchen amenities (coffee maker and milk steamer ). "

"Lovely property, only issue was the master bed was so squeaky that if you even moved it woke the other person up, which was a shame because the room was lovely."
