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.

    Rose cottage has acceded our expectations in almost every aspect. Had it not been to a problem with one of the heaters* and the need to travel to next village for groceries - we would most definitely give the great experience a full 10 score! 10+ - if there was such a possibility! Thoughtfulness and welcoming in every single detail - positively heartwarming. *We managed so we didn't want to bother you-but please fix the control of the heater in the double bedroom on the second floor.

    Sadly not the cleanest house - especially the kitchen. Dirty cupboard doors, really dirty inside drawers and kitchen floor. We also had to wash down all the outside furniture before we could use it. Otherwise the house was great. Perfect location and very warm and comfortable. Oven gloves would be a huge bonus if we come again.
