Swallow End is perfectly located for visiting bustling Cheltenham or peaceful Cotswold villages.

"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.

Large, beamed sitting room with gas woodburner. Modern fitted, well-equipped kitchen with dining area. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. First floor: Two pretty bedrooms; one double and one twin. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

    We thought Swallow End was fabulous: the cottage was comfortable, warm and welcoming, and, very importantly at the end of a long drive, easy to locate. We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed the use of the pool (ample size for teenage children), game room, tennis courts and football area, all of which were well maintained and available for personal use throughout our stay. The bedrooms and living area were a decent size, and although the kitchen was not large enough for 2 adults and 3 adult-size teenagers sit at the dining table, it was easy to use and very well equipped. Larger mugs for tea/coffee would have been useful, but we could always bring our own. The surrounding countryside is beautiful, and the cottage is situated overlooking Cheltenham Race Course. As we were are the cottage over the New Year, we took advantage of the location and had a day at the races. For those who, like us, enjoy running, a Park Run takes place within walking/running distance of the cottage, and there is plenty to see on a longer run. WiFi was a little temperamental, with some days being better than others, but this wasn't too much of an issue, as we had so many other things to do and enjoy. We loved our time here, and would thoroughly recommend it.

    Thank you for the lovely stay. We are a family of 5 and we really enjoyed our stay and enjoyed using the pool twice during our stay. My 3 young kids loved the swimming pool. The complimentary milk and fruit was appreciated. We would not hesitate to stay again. X love The Tangs x

    Lovely cottage in quiet location but only five minutes drive from town centre and five minutes walk to racecourse. Swimming pool good but not overly warm. Tennis court for the energetic.

    This is one of the best equipped cottages I have ever stayed in - and I have stayed in plenty! Great to have tea, coffee, milk and bread there when we arrived. It is well designed, comfortable and has great facilities. It was lovely to have a swim on a hot afternoon.
