Find cottages in Gloucestershire

There are a lot of reasons that make Gloucestershire the perfect place for a self-catering cottage holiday. Take for example the areas of outstanding natural beauty like the Cotswolds with its ‘picture postcard’ limestone villages and tranquil countryside and The Forest of Dene which has been a national park since 1938.

Gloucestershire’s natural beauty is enhanced with a backdrop of historical towns and cities including Gloucester itself; home to Gloucester Cathedral with its stunning stain glass windows and cloisters and 1,000 years of history. Thanks to its appearance in the Harry Potter films, it should also appeal to younger visitors.

Also of historical interest is Tewkesbury, situated between the rivers Severn and Avon this town has some of the best medieval architecture in England and a wonderful abbey that goes back to Norman times. Coming slightly more up to date the regency town of Cheltenham Spa is beautifully presented and famous for its open parklands and floral displays.

Like most of Gloucestershire the Forest of Dene and Wye Valley is perfect for gentle walks and countryside cycling and has plenty of places of interest including castles and museums. The forest covers some 50 square miles of ancient woodland and has activities suitable for all ages from forest canopy zip-wires and paint-balling to butterfly zoos and the Dene Valley Railway. For those who enjoy our great British wildlife a visit to Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetland Trust must be at the top of the agenda. The trust was the vision of the renowned naturalist Sir Peter Scott who created one of the world’s most significant conservation projects which now manages to attract huge populations of swans, geese and ducks every year.

Family holidays can be enjoyed in this region with plenty of days out and things to do; For example The International Centre for Birds of Prey at Newent has a great collection of hawks, falcons and eagles from around the world and the Cotswold Motoring Museum and Toy Collection at Bourton-on-the-Water takes you on a fascinating journey of the 20th century and is sure appeal to both children and adults. The Perrygrove Railway is a lovely little heritage railway runs to the edge of the Forest of Dene and offers plenty to keep the family entertained.

  • The Barn Reborn

    Winchcombe

    Grade

    Ref: NRP


    In the grounds of Grade II listed Charingworth Court can be found this delightful, spacious, timber framed barn, restored to make a perfect base for exploring the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The centre of historic Winchcombe is just a short stroll away with its restaurants, pubs and shops. The hills around are rich in well-signed footpaths, including the Cotswold Way at the bottom of the drive. The towns of Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-Marsh are all worth exploring, while Regency Cheltenham is just 8 miles away.
    The Barn itself is a really special conversion. Part of it dates from about 1650 and is mentioned by the renowned Nikolaus Pevsner in his Gloucestershire guide. Much of the original structure was gutted by fire in the 1960s, when a car stored inside caught fire. The rest was patched up then, but not much used. The main house and barn came into new ownership in the 1990s. After finishing restoring the main house and creating new gardens, the owners turned to the barn as the final element of their restoration work. Only part of the shell remained, including some original red bricks and some striking oak beams. Fortunately the owners had an old photograph of the barn before the fire. This showed how much bigger the barn had been prior to the fire. After seeing the old foundations, the planners agreed to proposals to rebuild the lost part. So, in 2010 work started on rebuilding, and a timber framed section was added to the existing part using traditional techniques and materials, and also meeting the requirements of modern building regulations. The original timber frame was repaired and restored, and the poor quality 1960s materials were replaced where necessary. New sections of timber frame were then lifted in by crane and put together like a giant three-dimensional jigsaw puzzle.
    Inside, contemporary furnishings blend elegantly with traditional features and modern fabrics. While the living room is part of the new structure, the wood frame on display gives the room a period feel. The double height kitchen/dining area has a warm mellow feel, with the original timber framed brick wall making a striking feature. The kitchen units match the rosy brick colour. Glazed on each side where the original barn doors would have opened, the hallway opens to the roof 8 metres above, where a beautiful Italian glass chandelier hangs. The wood-burning stove and underfloor heating keep the barn warm and comfortable throughout the year. The upstairs landing displays original 1600s oak beams, while the oak floors and exposed oak timber frame all add to the period charm. The en-suite bedroom has open oak framework filled with glass, and 6ft oak bed in keeping with the traditional oak framing. Shops, pub and restaurants 400 yards.

    Double aspect entrance hall. Large living room with wooden floor, beams and French doors to small garden. Kitchen/dining room with wood-burning stove and stone tiled floor. Wet room with toilet. First floor: Double bedroom with 6ft bed and en-suite bathroom with toilet.
