Yew Tree Cottage
Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Yew Tree Cottage is a charming Cotswold stone period cottage, set in the beautiful village of Willersey which was the winner of the ‘Cotswold Life’ Village of the Year 2005 (click here to see more).Dating from approximately 1850, this is an ideal family retreat set behind a pretty front garden with mature trees and shrubs overlooking the attractive village green and duck pond. Mallards and their offspring can be seen waddling around the footpaths and settling in villagers’ gardens - a lovely sight.
Within a short stroll there are two local inns serving excellent food, a general store serving most needs including your daily newspaper and freshly baked bread and buns!
The cottage is within yards of open countryside and ideally placed to visit the surrounding Cotswold villages of Broadway (just over a mile away), Chipping Camden, Stow on the Wold and Stratford upon Avon (with the Royal Shakespeare Company theatre) is approximately 10 miles away. Artists, ramblers and cyclists will find plenty to see.

"Comfy and cosy cottage!"
This was a perfect cottage for a family birthday get together. Such a beautiful location; we enjoyed a great walk up to Broadway Tower and were ready for a cosy sit round the fire on return. The kitch… More

"Beautiful cottage that made for a magical weekend break"
We arrived at the cottage at night and felt at home the second we walked through the door. There was a welcome cake which was much appreciated after our long journey (!) logs to make a fire in the cosy sitting room and more generally the house had a warm and welcoming feel. All the beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped.
All in all a great stay. I would definitely book Yew Tree Cottage again.
We are delighted to hear you had a good time and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

"Cleanest and cosiest cottage I've ever rented."
What a fabulous cottage, very clean, warm, inviting....lovely gift of chocolates on arrival too which pleased the 5 girls I had with me. The cottage had everything we needed and plenty of crockery which I have often found shortage of in others I've been in. The girls all loved it and although we were plenty in numbers there was still lots of space. We did use the heating and the house warms up very quickly and retains heat so we were very cosy in the evenings. Having 2 bathrooms was great due to 6 sharing and the bedrooms were a good size. As for the beds...I have never slept as well in a rental property as I did at Yew Tree. Fantastic comfy mattresses and good duvets, not something you normally find away from home.
All in all a great holiday was had at Yew Tree Cottage surrounded by beautiful countryside and lots to do. Would definitely go again. Thank you.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. I'm delighted you loved the cottage and had a good holiday. You left Yew Tree in a beautiful condition and I could hardly believe you had 5 children as company!! I look forward to welcoming you again soon. Many thanks Collette and Gerry

"A perfect cottage in a picturesque setting."
We had the most wonderful weekend at Yew Tree Cottage during the early May Bank Holiday this year when we surprised our mum for her 60th birthday. On arrival we found it extremely clean and tidy, we could tell instantly that it had been painted throughout. The welcoming goodies were such a lovely touch too and started our perfect weekend off nicely! The cottage was very well equipped, especially in the kitchen, including the fantastic dishwasher which was much needed for the entire weekend as we had hungry mouths to feed and pots to wash! The beds were extremely comfortable and having the two bathrooms was great. Yew Tree Cottage has a very warm, comfortable and homely feel to it, the living room and dining room were both spacious and our two year old nephews loved toddling around them as well as in the private, secure rear garden, which we were lucky enough weather wise to be able to make good use of. The communication of the owners, Gerry & Collette was second to none, from the enquiry to when we arrived back home, they made they whole process smooth and were extremly organised.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Cotswold gem and hope one day to return again as a family.

Yew Tree cottage was perfect for a weekend with girlfriends! The location is really central to all the attractions in the area - we visited Snowshill Manor and Broadway -
but spent most of weekend in the sunshine-bright kitchen, eating and drinking, or cosied up in the warm lounge, gossiping.
We had everything we needed - including a complimentary bottle of wine and welcome note from the owners when we arrived. The bedrooms deserve special mention - I had the best night's sleep in ages!
Thoroughly lovely property, and I'm hoping I can take the family there later in the year.
Hi Katherine, girls seem to be so good at arranging weekends away to catch up. Imagine how tempting it is to jump in and have a quick sleep before I continue cleaning the rest of the cottage...those beds are so good!!
I will have to find something fizzy and none alcoholic for when the whole family come to stay.
Thank you for taking the time to add a review.

"FANTASTIC, RESTFUL COTTAGE"
My partner and I fell in love with the cottage, it had everything that we needed and more. It was a pleasure dealing with the owners and they left the cottage so beautiful, clean and fresh that we will definitely stay there again and will bring our friends and family with us.
The village was extremely friendly and the two pubs were so handy for meals out.
We would highly recommend this as a peaceful retreat for anyone.
Thank you so much for taking the trouble to write a review. It was lovely to meet you and I'm delighted you had a great time. We look forward to welcoming you again one day very soon.

"Unloved cottage in beautiful location in need of serious TLC"
We have recently returned from a weeks stay at "Yew Tree Cottage". The location is perfect and he beds were very clean and comfortable Willersey is a very friendly and beautiful village but… More
The cottage has been fully redecorated and the dishwasher was repaired immediately after these guests departed. Their stay coincided with a hugely traumatic period for our family with our son critically ill in hospital. We are a husband and wife team who pride ourselves on very high standards of cleanliness and have always received excellent feedback. It's a great shame that these guests could not show a little more understanding of our situation, thankfully our son is recovering and our standards of cleanliness will remain at the highest level.
