About this location

The Cotswolds region

At the northern end of the Cotswolds, Mickleton, home of the world-famous Pudding Club, is a pretty village on the B4632, just 3 miles north of Chipping Campden, 8 miles south west of Stratford-upon-Avon (birthplace of William Shakespeare and home of the Royal Shakespeare Theatre) and 8 miles north east of Broadway. With beautiful countryside on the doorstep, Elder Cottage is an ideal base for a Cotswolds walking holiday, touring the Cotswolds, or just relaxing. The Heart of England Way passes through the village, and the Cotswold Way begins and ends in nearby Chipping Campden.

Chipping Campden

Nearby attractions include Kiftsgate Gardens (1 mile), Bourton-on-the-Water (12 miles), Stow-on-the-Wold (12 miles), Warwick Castle (16 miles) and Blenheim Palace (35 miles). There are notable National Trust properties at Hidcote (1 mile), the Fleece Inn at Bretforton (5 miles) and Snowshill Manor (10 miles). Mickleton is ideally situated for trips into the Cotswolds to the south or the 'Heart of England' to the north and east. Worcester, Warwick, Cheltenham and Oxford are all within an easy drive of an hour or less.

Mickleton offers two pubs, a restaurant, Post Office and stores, village shop, traditional butcher, garage and farm shops. The nearest small town is Chipping Campden with its fine High Street, beautiful church and many ancient and interesting buildings.

"Beautiful cottage, great location, every need catered for"

We stayed for a week in March and the weather was perfect which just rounded off a wonderful stay in this beautiful little cottage which was like a home from home. Catherine was so nice and helpful and everything in the cottage was spotless and so well equipped. Extra luxuries such as huge fluffy white towels and chocolates and flowers on arrival just completed a fantastic holiday. We walked for miles all around and visited lots of NT properties too so the location is also great.
I would highly recommend this cottage for 2 people. Perfect.

"Elder Cottage is the perfect homebase to discover the Cotswolds"

Elder Cottage is perfect for 2 people (a couple) who are looking for a peaceful rest in a charming village. It's comfortable, all necessities are there and it's really spotless. The situation in the north of the Cotswolds is perfect to discover all the beautiful villages and monuments. The welcome was warm and we felt at home immediatly. Especially when considering a longer stay in the region (1 week or more), Elder Cottage is a very good alternative as you have all facilities to cook, wash/dry some clothing and enjoy some privacy.

"A piece of heaven on Earth"

We have been staying at Elder Cottage for the last ten years and it never disappoints. Catherine makes sure you are made very welcome with bread, milk etc all waiting for you. The cottage is very pretty, comfortable & cosy. It is in a lovely village with 3 very good pubs, a convenience store, butcher, & post office.You never need to go any further if you just want complete relaxation. Although you are only a few minutes from Chipping Camden, Broadway & Stratford to name just a few of the pretty places nearby.
