Courtyard Cottages

Gloucestershire, England

spacer line

This 2-story cottage, opposite the Stables, is located just through the stable block's  dramatic entrance arch. The Courtyard Cottages' interiors are steeped in history.  

The pretty living room has bow windows, an antique pine fireplace with a gas stove insert, beamed ceilings, nice, comfortable furniture and fabrics with traditional designs.  The dining room has two tables that can seat up to 16. 

The excellent kitchen, on two levels, has a Belfast sink, pine cupboards, antique touches. The breakfast area has a door leading onto the courtyard which allows for dining outside. 

Upstairs, the former hay loft has 3 bedrooms, one with a double bed and nice cupboards, one with twin beds and one, on the top floor, with a double bed and two single beds.  All rooms have floral fabrics and nice antiques.  There are two hallway bathrooms on this level, one with a shower.


The gardens are beautiful.  There are many specimen trees and plants and deep borders that change with the seasons.  The lake is home to swans, heron, ducks,  geese and other waterfowl.  There is a dovecote and a Doomsday watermill dating from 1086.  The village church, with its ancient graveyard, is next door.

The outdoor pool, heated in July and August, is open during daylight hours with a quiet time set aside each mid-day for elderly or "shy" guests to enjoy the pool in relative quiet.  There is an all-weather tennis court, croquet, table tennis and a billiard room (adults only, please).

Children are warmly welcomed here.  Special occasions are given special attention.  Mid-week cleaning and baby sitting can be arranged with advance notice at an additional charge.  The local pub will cater meals for you with advance notice.  Sorry, dogs are not allowed.  Smoking is not allowed in the cottages and non-smoking guests are preferred.

This is a beautiful property for a wedding.  You can have a marquee by the lake.  Guests can stroll amid the 15 acres of National Garden Scheme gardens.  You can use your own florist, marquee people, photographers and caterers or the owners will provide this for you.  For weddings, you have to take all five B&B rooms in the main house plus the Coach House, Courtyard Cottage and Stables.   These are all close together.  Watermill and the Studio Flat can be booked also, of course.   There is plenty of parking.  Please contact us for more information.
