Description

This rurally located holiday cottage is ideally located for family activities in Cheltenham or amongst the property’s surrounding grounds.

"Fine cottages and facilities – just a mile from one of England’s finest Regency towns . . ."

Occupying a superb position with wonderful rural views, yet within a mile or so of Cheltenham’s elegant town centre, these delightful holiday cottages have been created from a range of 19th-century barns and are furnished and equipped to high standards. All cottages enjoy a good choice of shared facilities including a covered heated swimming pool, an all-weather tennis court and a croquet lawn. The cottages are well equipped, with an automatic washing machine, microwave oven and dishwasher, and each cottage has its own sitting out area with patio and furniture.
All the fascinating corners of the beautiful Regency spa town of Cheltenham are immediately to hand: there is an art gallery, a museum, tempting boutiques, antique shops, plentiful restaurants and inns. Only a short walk away is Cheltenham’s racecourse, famous as the home of National Hunt Racing, which stages the Cheltenham Festival in March, as well as several other top quality race meetings between October and the end of April. The Pittville Pump Room, a magnificent Grade I listed building opened in 1830, has a museum on its top floor. In the ballroom it is possible to taste spa water from the original pump. Historic illustrations, photographs and small displays tell the story of Cheltenham from its beginnings in Anglo-Saxon times. The building is surrounded by attractive parkland with a lake and children’s playground, public tennis courts and golf course. Number 4 Clarence Road, built in 1832 by James Creed, is the house in which Gustav Holst was born on 21 September 1874, and where he spent the first seven years of his childhood. The Holst Birthplace Museum is a memorial to the composer and a rare treat for lovers of music. On the summit of nearby Leckhampton Hill above the Devil’s Chimney, a teetering rock column, is the site of an Iron Age fort; keen walkers can follow the Cotswold Way.
Hunting Butts Cottages provide a perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside and villages of the Cotswolds as well as the attractions of the Heart of England. The Cotswolds cast their spell on artists, naturalists, walkers and everyone with a love for rural peace and tranquillity: Broadway – the ‘Venice’ of the Cotswolds; delightful Chipping Campden; Blockley, described as the most beautiful village in England, and Stow-on-the-Wold boasting England’s oldest pub, are all within half an hour’s drive. The variety of attractions is almost endless. Exploring this region at any time of year is a rewarding experience, each season throwing a different light on the changing scene. Heritage attractions in the area include Sudeley Castle (7 miles), once home of Catherine Parr, containing Europe’s largest collection of toys, arms and armour. Forest of Dean 23 miles. Birmingham, Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are all within one hour by car. Sailing and wind-surfing on 15,000 acres of lakes near the ancient Roman town of Cirencester are available within 30 minutes’ drive. Shops ½ mile.

    A very lovely base for a wide variety of places to visit nearby with our children. Plenty to do at the cottage too with large play area, swimming, tennis etc. Would definitely recommend.

    We found the cottage to be very well equipped & clean; but the beds were uncomfortable & in need of new mattresses, particularly the bunks. Unfortunately, being so close to Cheltenham, near busy roads, was not the right location for us. We also found Friday arrival/departure difficult as Friday is the busiest day on the roads & will avoid it in future.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We are so pleased that you found Little Barn to be so well equipped and clean. I am sorry that you found the beds uncomfortable as we realise a good nights sleep is so important when on holiday. On arrival we did show you where reception was and asked you to let us know if there was anything at all that you needed, we keep extra mattresses specifically for times like this as we appreciate not every one likes a firm/soft mattress and we could easily have changed these for you. The farm is 3 miles from the centre of Cheltenham and the drive is half a mile from the nearest road. The reason we do a changeover on a Friday is so that our guests can enjoy the Cotswolds for a weekend break, mid week break or a full week.

    We had a lovely first holiday with our little baby. The cottage was perfect for our needs, with a well equipped kitchen and thoughtful extras-tea, milk, biscuits, bread, butter and fruit all there for our arrival!
