An ideal location in a charming, not so touristy location, with a castle down the street, or is it up? As an interior designer I appreciated the thoughtful, aesthetic design of the home. Very roomy for 2 people and easily comfortable for four. We were greeted by a delicious cake which lasted us through our stay. For me, the highlight was the bedding. Plentiful down pillows and a comfortable mattress, warm covers. Note to Americans: we never had a top sheet anywhere we stayed and the duvets can get warm. Tons of reading material including so many guides to the area. Very quiet street. We had just come from a wonderful experience in a large manor and so loved the experience of this cozy cottage (which btw had better bedding than the "manor.") Thanks to our hosts for a perfect setting in the beautiful Cotswolds, heaven on earth.
The cottage is centered in Winchcombe making everything very accesible. The cottage has been updated with a modern kitchen and bathroom and is very lovingly decorated. The bed is large but a bit soft and the toilet is on the ground floor, whereas the bedroom is upstairs, but one gets used to it quickly and the cottage's location makes up for any minor inconveniences. There is no microwave, but the stove is easy to use and conveniently located. The cottage is well lit and comfortable. We would return to it should we return to Winchcombe.
