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!

"Absolutely Wonderful"

My friends and I stayed for two nights and wished it could have been longer. Gorgeous cottage in the beautiful picture postcard village of Armscote. The cottage had everything that you needed, including very comfortable beds. We visited Shipston-on-Stour and Stratford. Gill & Ian were extremely welcoming and helpful. I am hoping to visit this cottage again next year. Definitely recommended

Thank you for taking the time to say a few words about your visit. We enjoyed meeting you all too, & we're pleased you found the beds comfortable....a 'must' when you're on holiday! We do welcome feed-back from our guests as it helps us to keep the good standards expected.

"A very complete and cozy cottage at one of the finest locations in Brittain"

We really enjoyed our stay at the Cottage at Armscote! Every room is elegantly furnished. The kitchen is rather small, but contains all you might need during your stay (although we could do with a larger fridge...). The gas log fire heats the living room very fast and comfortable - which (early spring) was very pleasant. The large windows in both the living room and dining room give an impression of "outside". It is very quiet, especially in the evenings - and although the cottage is located next to the road, there's hardly any traffic!! We visited Oxford (1h drive), the Leicester Space center, Stratford upon Avon and Warwick Castle, which all are great day-trips with the family. All-in-all, we would definitely recommend this cottage to others!!

Thank you for giving us your thoughts & we're pleased you enjoyed your stay at The Cottage. The only difficulty with converting an old barn is that you have to fit everything in with the space given, hence all the character, but as you say, the kitchen is well equipped with every modern convenience for your needs. We'd love to welcome you back here sometime soon.

"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.

"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.

"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.

"Just perfect"

What a wonderful quiet, clean, comfortably and peaceful cottage. From the minute we walked in we felt at home. The cottage is a real good base to explore the heart of England. We went to lots of great houses and gardens - with a membership of the National Trust for one week - and our time weren't long enough to see everything we wanted. Stratford-Upon-Avon is a nice little town and we enjoy everything of Shakespeare. Me and my nineteen-years-old daughter enjoyed the wifi-internet at the cottage, it helped us to stay in touch with our friends. And we used it as well, for instance to check if the less well-known gardens were open. All in all, we wished we could have stayed longer and I hope I can come back.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your time spent at our Cottage. It is a character property with that 'homely' feel & so cosy during winter months too. We'd love to welcome you back again at any time of the year. There's always something new to see & do in this beautiful area.

"cosy cottage with fire- excellent!"

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. We had been quite nervous about travelling with a young toddler, so this was just what we needed. A self catering cottage, two good sized bedrooms, a lounge with a fire, a dining room, kitchen and bathroom. Great for families, as Ian and Gill were so welcoming. I would highly recommend this cottage to couples or families as a fantastic, cosy retreat.

Many guests enjoy the beautiful gas-log fire. It is so like the real thing, gives out terrific heat, & is instant! Just perfect for the holiday maker. As you say, our location is very peaceful & ideal for small children. We enjoy seeing families relaxing & having fun here, even helping collect eggs from our chickens.
