About this location

The Cotswolds region

This region of England has many historic building & places of interest to visit no matter what the weather! It's also a 'walkers' paradise, with some amazing views from the surrounding hills over Warwickshire & Gloucestershire. Armscote lies just off the Fosse Way, an old Roman road which runs from Bath northwards. The beautiful town of Stratford upon Avon ( just 8 miles away) has its own special charm, with its riverside location. Take a boat out for the afternoon, or enjoy afternoon tea at the many special tearooms dotted around the area. Or why not visit Shakespeare's Theatre for that special treat. Warwick Castle is only 20 mins. drive away where you could spend a whole day exploring the ancient town. Very picturesque!

Travelling the opposite direction, you'll find yourself in the COTSWOLD VILLAGES, just 8 miles away, or just walk from The Cottage & enjo the peaceful surroundings.

Stratford has riverside markets every Sunday which adds to the atmosphere, and every Thursday in December, there are street Christmas Markets.


You'll find many quaint english tea-rooms & coffee-shops in this area plus great boutique shops for the ladies! At Stow-on-the-Wold you'll be amazed by the unusual antique shops & little shopping arcades. Locally in Shipston-on-Stour & Stratford,there is a wonderful leisure centre with large swimming pool, ideal for rainy days for the children. If you want to treat yourselves, there are numerous good eating places within just a few miles of The Cottage, the nearest being THE FUZZY DUCK just 2 minutes walk away in the village. They serve good food. You'll be spoilt for choice of where to eat in this area!

"Cosy, comfortable and relaxing."

Lovely little cottage for a quiet getaway. It has everything you need. Kettle, comfy chairs, bed and a warm fire. Short walk to a nice pub and open fields.
Would definitely use again.

"Excellent, well-appointed base for visiting Stratford and the Cotswolds"

This is a very well converted group of former farm buildings, equipped and furnished to a high standard with emphasis on comfort and quality. The village of Armscote is a picturesque settlement very … More

Thank you for taking the time to review this pretty Cottage. Sometimes we need reminding of what a beautiful part of England we live in! Being a barn conversion, The Cottage has a lot of character & charm but still maintaining modern comforts. So pleased you enjoyed this special retreat.

"Lovely stay in a cosy cottage"

My 2 friends and I only had a weekend, but really enjoyed staying in the cosy, well equipped cottage. The owners were very welcoming and we would certainly book it again.

The Cottage is ideal for long or short breaks at any time of year. Being a typical Cotswold stone Cottage, it exudes warmth & charm, making it an excellent base for that quiet relaxing break or time to visit local places of interest. Maybe you can visit for longer next time! We love to welcome guests old & new! Thank you for your comments.

"The ideal Cotswold cottage!"

Armscote cottage was very cosy, (and the bedrooms are upstairs and the bathroom down a spiral staircase, just in case thats important), it is beautifully done and very comfortable.

It would be perfect for one, or two, couples and is ideal for a touring holiday of the Cotswolds, being situated as it is just 7 miles south of Stratford-on-Avon. Because there are so many things to do nearby, we visited about 8 National Trust or English heritage properties during our 5 day stay, and went to the RSC twice.

It has a real country cottage feel, and everything you could need for a comfortable stay, and was surrounded by real thatched cottages!!

Gill and Ian were the perfect hosts, and very kindly phoned round to access an evening meal for us on our first night.
We loved our stay and would highly recommend this cottage.
Thank you Gill and Ian.

Thank you for taking the time to write a few words about The Cottage. It is in a wonderful location, both for visiting Warwick Castle, Stratford upon Avon, Oxford etc, or just to appreciate the beauty of the. Cotswold Villages nearby. We like to make our guests feel welcome & relaxed, hoping they will return home & spread the word of what a fantastic holiday home they have found! See you again soon.

"Perfect setting for Christmas"

My husband and I stayed at the Cottage for Christmas week and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The cottage was just right for our needs, cozy, comfortable and inviting after days of exploring the area. It was convenient to area attractions and great as a base for exploring Stratford Upon Avon. We would definitely recommend the Cottage.

We are so pleased you enjoyed Christmas at The Cottage in Armscote. The log fire stove invites you to relax at the end of a busy day, & regardless of the weather, there is always plenty of things to do & see in this area, knowing that you will have a warm comfortable Cottage to come back to. We welcome guests at any time of the year & would love to see you here again sometime soon.

"A lovely cottage for couples and families situated in a very pretty village"

Although quite small, the cottage was very clean and comfortable and ideally situated for many places of interest. The extensive courtyard and lawns provide an excellent space for the children to play, and for any entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us & always welcome children here. The Cottage is a cosy relaxing place at any time of year.....always something new to see & do in the area. We hope you can return again sometime.

We are sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. Firstly I would like to point out that we were away during your visit & the people who appeared on your departure day were not us, but the cleaners.We always leave toilet rolls, soap, milk, teabags & homemade cookies to welcome guests on their arrival. We are very particular about the standard of cleaning in The Cottage & we have taken your comments on board & will look into these matters, as this is of great importance to us. As to the gardener appearing, we DID tell him not to tend the gardens while guests were in residence which is not always possible with bad weather.

"Perfect spot for a mother-and-daughter break."

The cottage is charming and very well equipped, and Armscote was a good base for exploring Shakespearian locations and the Cotswolds. The nearest town, Shipston on Stour, was attractive and we had a good meal at the White Hart, Newbold. Our hosts kindly offered to drive us there and back which was much appeciated! We particularly enjoyed Warwick. Everyone seemed very pleasant, and we loved Lord Leycester's Hospital, an ancient half timbered structure, and Hill Croft, a set of charming Victorian gardens near the racecourse. Another delightful garden was reached down Mill Street (I think) with spectacular views of the Castle.
