Stables Cottage

Gloucestershire, England

spacer line

This is a comfortable 2-story cottage which was once part of the stables and a hayloft.  There is a bedroom downstairs and one on the  upper level which provide excellent privacy in a small space.

The stables has a very nice sitting/dining room, done in traditional English style, with comfortable furniture, colorful fabrics, a large corner fireplace with a gas stove insert. The dining table seats 6. The kitchen, small , but excellent,  has a new Zanussi stainless steel stove.

The ground floor bedroom has a canopied double bed. There is a hallway bathroom with a tub and separate shower.

Up a steep stairway, there is a bedroom with a double bed and a single bed (under the eaves) and a WC with basin. Views of the Bredon Hills are framed by the windows.


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.
