Grade II listed Rosebank Cottage was once part of a larger farm building, standing proudly on the brink of a small hill, providing wonderful rural views. The cottage is located in the rural Cotswolds village of Ebrington, home to the highly regarded Ebrington Arms pub, and surrounded by beautiful open countryside, with numerous walks right on the doorstep. Despite the tranquil setting, the cottage is only two miles from the historic market town of Chipping Campden, with its many restaurants, shops and beautiful buildings, and only 12 miles from Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
Dating from the mid-18th century, Rosebank Cottage is full of traditional Cotswold character, including oak beams, exposed stone walls and a large original inglenook fireplace, with a wood burning stove. Complementing these period features, the cottage has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a Freeview TV and a well equipped kitchen. The cottage also has an enclosed rear garden. The size and layout of the property makes Rosebank Cottage an ideal retreat for a family, two couples, or a small group of friends.
The cottage sleeps up to five people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms.
Rosebank Cottage has three private parking spaces, at the end of the property's back garden. A path leads down the garden to the cottage's back door, which opens into:
•Sunroom: A small, relaxing room, overlooking the garden, containing a chaise longue.
The sunroom provides access to:
•Shower room/utility room: Contains a shower, wash basin and toilet, as well as a washing machine/tumble dryer and a freezer.
A stable door opens from the sunroom into the main cottage:
•Dining room: Oak beams and doors are complemented by a wooden table, with seating for six;
•Kitchen: A small, but well equipped kitchen, accessed from the dining room. Contains an oven, four ring hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, fridge and dishwasher;
•Living room: A beautiful room, full of character, with oak beams, exposed stonework and a grand inglenook fireplace with a large wood burning stove. Contains comfy seating for five.
A door from the dining room leads into a small hallway and the cottage's front door. Stairs go up from the hallway to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms:
•Bedroom 1: Contains two single beds OR one super king size bed;
•Bedroom 2: Contains a double bed;
•Bedroom 3: Contains a single bed.
(Please note that, due to the slope of the roof and the layout of the bedrooms, there are no wardrobes, however, there are clothes hooks and drawers in each bedroom)
•Bathroom: Contains a bath with shower attachment, wash basin and toilet.
Rosebank has a good sized, fully enclosed rear garden, mostly laid to lawn, with mature bushes and shrubbery around the edge. There is a patio area in the garden with an outdoor table and chairs, plus a barbecue.

About this location
The Cotswolds region
Ebrington is beautiful village, approximately two miles from Chipping Campden, with narrow lanes and tiny streets of Cotswold stone houses and cottages, many of which are thatched.
A manor has existed at Ebrington for several centuries, which was owned by the Fortescue family, who also had estates in Exmoor. The ancient church of St. Eadburgha shows many monuments to the family, including one to Sir John Fortescue in his robes as Lord Chief Justice. The church is mainly Perpendicular, with some Norman work remaining in the north and south doorways. It also has a 17th century canopied pulpit and medieval stained glass windows.
Chipping Campden is a small market town, notable for its elegant terraced High Street, dating from the 14th century to the 17th century (“Chipping” comes from the Old English word for a market-place and is found in other towns, such as Chipping Norton and Chipping Sodbury).
A rich wool trading centre in the Middle Ages, Chipping Campden enjoyed the patronage of wealthy wool merchants. Today it is a popular Cotswold tourist destination with old inns, hotels, specialist shops and restaurants. The High Street is lined with honey-coloured limestone buildings, built from the mellow locally quarried oolitic limestone known as Cotswold stone, and boasts a wealth of fine vernacular architecture. At its centre stands the Market Hall with its splendid arches, built in 1627.
Other attractions include the grand early perpendicular wool church of St James, with its medieval altar frontals, cope and vast and extravagant 17th century monuments to local wealthy silk merchant Sir Baptist Hicks and his family – the Almshouses and Woolstaplers Hall. The Court Barn near the church is now a museum celebrating the rich Arts and Crafts tradition of the area. Hicks was also responsible for Campden House, which was destroyed by fire during the English Civil War possibly to prevent it falling into the hands of the Parliamentarians. All that now remains of Hicks' once imposing estate are two gatehouses, two Jacobean banqueting houses, restored by the Landmark Trust and Lady Juliana's gateway. Hick's descendants still live at the Court House attached to the site.
In the early 20th century Chipping Campden became known as a centre for the Cotswold Arts and Crafts Movement, following the move of Charles Robert Ashbee with the members of his Guild and School of Handicraft from the East End of London in 1902. The Guild of Handicraft specialised in metalworking, producing jewellery and enamels, as well as hand-wrought copper and wrought ironwork, and furniture-making. A number of artists and writers settled in the area, including F. L. Griggs, the etcher, who built Dover's Court, one of the last significant Arts and Crafts houses, and set up the Campden Trust with Norman Jewson and others, initially to protect Dover's Hill from development.
Since the early 17th century Chipping Campden has been home to a championship of rural games, which later turned into Robert Dover's Cotswold Olimpick Games. The Olimpicks are held every summer on the Friday evening following the late Spring Bank-holiday, on Dover's Hill. Peculiar to the games is the sport of shin-kicking (hay stuffed down the trousers can ease one's brave passage to later rounds).
The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Cotswold towns include Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Burford, Chipping Norton, Cirencester, Moreton-in-Marsh, Northleach, Stow-on-the-Wold, Stroud and Winchcombe. The town of Chipping Campden is notable for being the home of the Arts and Crafts movement, founded by William Morris at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. William Morris lived occasionally in Broadway Tower, a folly, now part of a country park. Chipping Campden is also known for the annual Cotswold Olimpick Games, a celebration of sports and games dating back to the early 17th century. Famous places close to the Cotswolds include Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare, Cheltenham, home to the famous horse racing festival, and the beautiful university city of Oxford.
Food and drink
There are a number of well-regarded pubs and restaurants located a pleasant walk or a short drive away from the property, including The Ebrington Arms, in Ebrington, and The Horse & Groom, in Bourton0on-the-Hill. The nearby village of Blockley has two pubs and a shop with a cafe, and there are a number of bars, restaurants and cafes in the nearby market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Campden.
There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider North Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water, Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Broadway, Burford and Chipping Norton containing a wide variety of tea shops, pubs and restaurants, catering for most tastes and budgets. There are also many traditional Cotswold pubs located in the lovely villages throughout the North Cotswolds.
The list below is a very small sample to give you a flavour for the wide range of attractions and activities that are available in and around the Cotswolds. Tourist Information centres are located in all the main North Cotswold towns.
•Cheltenham race course
•Cotswold Farm Park
•Broadway Tower Country Park
•Snowshill Manor & Garden
Activities available in the Cotswolds include walking, cycling, horse riding, golf, swimming and rock climbing.

"Beautiful period cottage"
With regards to our stay at Rosebank cottage we had a great week, the cottage was very comfortable and had everything we could have required. The location was superb with good pubs serving excellent food nearby.
We even made use of the garden having unusually good weather for March.
Also there were plenty of good walks from the doorstep for our dog.
We will definately consider staying at this property again.

"Beautiful Cottage from a very helpful agency"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rosebank Cottage and would certainly be interested in booking with Character Cottages again if we were looking to stay in the Cotswolds area.
We thought the standard of the accommodation was excellent with many pleasant little extras (including the first ipod docking station we have had in any accomodation) and we appreciated the agents quick response whenever we had a query or a problem. The local pub was only a minutes walk away and was just perfect. We would definitely recommend the cottage and the agent to our friends in the future.

"Wonderful stay in a fabulous cottage"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Rosebank. It's a lovely cottage and the setting is perfect. The cottage was extremely clean and very well presented. Rosebank is just how a cottage should be. We are planning on returning for another stay in the future.

"A cosy cottage in a lovely Cotswold village"
We recently returned from another delightful stay at Rosebank Cottage. We are convinced this comfortable cottage can't be beat! The cottage itself is idyllic with and an inglenook fireplace and charming garden. We have no worries on arrival knowing that the cottage will be clean and well equipped, particularly the kitchen, which makes cooking a pleasure. The cottage is located in the small, traditional Cotswold village of Ebrington which boasts an award winning gastropub, The Ebrington Arms. While it would be easy to spend time in this comfortable cottage, the surrounding area beckons with its numerous public walking paths, lovely Cotswold villages to visit and, even the theatre to attend in Stratford upon Avon, and much more.
From the easy to navigate website to their responsiveness to questions, the accomplished team at Character Cottages makes renting and staying at Rosebank Cottage simple. It is obvious that the staff cares about the client and wants us to have a most positive experience. Our experience over several rentals has always been Five Star. Of course, we will return.

"Rosebank Cottage - a fairytale location"
Words cannot express how perfect this cottage is. We arrived in the dark, and when we woke to see the dawn in the village we were captivated. Ebrington is just like a fairytale. The cottage was perfect for our arrival - the cake was just what we needed after an international flight and long drive. Many thanks for the attention to detail, the cottage was so old world and cosy, and yet so functional for our family. We loved every minute of our stay, and were very sad when we had to leave. We would absolutely recommend this cottage to anyone.

"We really enjoyed our stay at Rosebank Cottage once again!"
We stayed at Rosebank last summer, for a fortnignight. We loved it so much that we decided to go back this summer as well, and we extended the stay by one week. It was so nice to arrive in the evening, quite exhausted, and find flowers on the tables and two bottles of good white wine there, together with all you need for a nice nightcup! And we never had to think about the weekly household, as a nice lady came everyweek, and saw to it, that everything was clean and tidy. It was really holiday!
This time we brought our bikes, and thus got to see much more of the surroundings and the nearby villages than last summer. It's really a very nice area! Everything about Rosebank, Ebrington and the surrounding areas delight us, and we will be back!
We live in Norway, and these two summers in Ebrington and Rosebank have made us even more "anglophiliac" then we were to start with. Our youngest daughter (aged 11) has stated that she wants to study in England, preferably in Oxford, and that she is going to work very hard to achieve that! Our son (aged 9) has decided that English is not such a difficult language after all, and he's even got a nice Brittish accent now!
So, to say it shortly: We by all means recommend you to treat yourself (-ves) with a stay at Rosebank!
