Description

Full of history, this Grade II listed property is perfect for guests wishing to explore the Cotswolds and its many attractions.

Built as a pair of cottages between 1629-1635, Rose Cottage, adjoining The Old Shop, is a 17th-century, Grade II listed building. In 1842, Charles Keyte, or Schemer Keyte as he was known, brought fame to himself, the village and to Rose Cottage itself, with his invention of what is thought to be one of the earliest sewing machines (now housed in Birmingham Science Museum). Guests will see a link to this historic fact with two antique sewing machines that decorate the living and dining rooms of this holiday cottage. The cottage has its own garden, which offers a quiet space for guests to enjoy an alfresco glass of wine in the most pleasurable of surroundings. Snowshill, which means ’snow on the hill’, is a small settlement which is situated between Broadway, Buckland, Laverton and Stanton. The name is well fitting due to the propensity for snow to linger in the folds of the hill, making for some magnificent scenery in the winter months. The village is an historical one, which links dating as far back as Edward II and Henry VIII. Perfect for walkers, Rose Cottage is the ideal base from which to really explore the magnificent beauty of the Cotswolds, using one of the many public footpaths that lead directly through the village and then onwards into many of the other nearby Cotswold villages and towns. Broadway, a 5-minute drive, is referred to as the ‘Jewel of the Cotswolds’ and has a high street filled with quaint tea shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and cafes, as well as an outdoor children’s activity area. There is another children’s play area and picnic site in Chipping Campden, a 10-minute drive away. Evesham, Moreton-in-Marsh, Bourton-on-the-Water, Stow-on-the-Wold, Chipping Norton and Burford area a 30-minute drive. Stratford-upon-Avon is also 30 minutes away, with historical buildings, sites and attractions related to the world-famous William Shakespeare. Within a 45-minute drive, visit Cheltenham Racecourse, historic Warwick, Leamington Spa, Worcester, Tewkesbury and Alcester. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

Beamed living room with wood-burning stove and leather sofas. Cosy beamed dining room with exposed Cotswold stone. Kitchen with electric range (for cooking) and wooden floor.

    Super cottage with great character. Very tastefully furnished and decorated. Loved it. Snowshill is beautiful and there are great walks from the village.

    This cottage was the worst that we have ever encountered in 13 years of booking cottages in the Cotswolds. A truly awful experience. We could not and would not recommend Rose Cottage to anyone. Beware of the extremely worn, steep and twisting stairs, (there's no warning about them on the website/cottage description or on the confirmation e-mails/notes about the stairs) that quite a few people would have difficultly negotiating. Dusty, badly cleaned, blown lightbulbs everywhere, faulty electrics, worn out, sagging and uncomfortable mattresses, no curtains or blinds at all downstairs and, in the longue in particular, dark. Very poor value for money. Rating, 0 out of 10.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Our guests reply is we believe in part a reaction to their discussions with Wyndham Staff. Immediately issues had been reported to Wyndham's and passed on to us and they were dealt with, two light bulbs (not as described by the guest as “lightbulbs everywhere had blown”) only had failed, these were replaced. It is interesting that the guests complained about the dark interior and the original period steep stone steps inside. The interior and stone steps are 17th century Grade II listed features which are clearly illustrated on the website, as is the window dressing. Given that they saw the website illustrations of the interior of the cottage with all its period features, one does wonder why they decided to book it. A more modern light and airy let would have been appropriate. Rose Cottage, a quintessentially typical Cotswold Stone Cottage, is full of charm and character features. The cottage is well lit with a selection for mood or full lighting. Historic period mullioned cottages are inevitably going to be less bright inside than modern housing with casement windows. Our guest also failed to add that they found the garden delightful! It is interesting that our other guests find the cottage cosy, charming and in a wonderful position. The other reviews tell a totally different picture.

    We had a fabulous weekend at Rose Cottage. It's a beautiful little cottage with lots of character. Everything was perfect with logs provided for the cosy log fire, fully equipped kitchen and beautifully prepared bedrooms. Snowshill is a lovely village but with only one pub, you'll have to go to Broadway for you amenities. Highly recommended though!

    Nice village and property but it's in need of some updating, especially the bathroom. Wasn't as clean as it could be and issues with heating meant it was cold in some rooms. Disappointing for the price.
