Sudeley Castle Cottage Self-Catering
If your trip to the Cotswolds needs a bit of decadence, then visiting Sudeley Castle should be a top priority. Seeing as Sudeley Castle Cottage is right next door, visiting the beautiful castle grounds will be easy, and thanks to your hosts, you'll also get free admission to the castle and its beautiful gardens. Staying in this fairytale cottage offers you a taste of the high life and a gorgeous view of the green rolling hills and unspoiled landscapes. The historical centre of Winchcombe is only a short fifteen-minute walk away as well, which should set you up for at least a few days of sightseeing – there's so much to discover, from chocolate-box buildings to cute-as-button tea rooms. The home itself is furnished with antiques, original paintings, high-quality soft furnishings, and a lovely collection of books chosen by Lady Ashcroft herself – and you'll love curling up with one of them on the comfy armchairs – we especially love the rustic fireplace that keeps things ultra-cosy. Ideal for large groups, this country-style house offers the usual mod-cons for a comfortable stay, with a sociable kitchen-come-diner for convivial meals together, and homely bedrooms with heaps of Cotswolds charm, so you can wake up feeling fresh and ready for a morning walk around the scenic country estate.
