Description from owner

Description

A Grade I listed Stuart garden house of 1620 in a private wooded valley in the heart of the Cotswolds. Sleeps 2 to 5 on three floors. Loggia on the ground floor has views over the listed gardens of the Tudor manor house.

The Court House with its romantic period charm is a favourite with history and architecture buffs. The front door opens directly into a garden loggia restored as an attractive dining room. The glass doors, divided by a simple Tuscan column, here frame the view of the east wing of the manor house and its yew trees immortalized by the etching of the famous Cotswold artist F.L. Griggs.

The small open-plan kitchen leads from the dining room. The bathroom lies beyond, with a bath and over-bath shower.

A narrow spiral staircase leads to a pretty sitting room in the old Justice Room on the first floor, with vintage horsehair sofa and charming brass nick nacks. The small main bedroom with zip and link queen-sized double bed (and a basin) are beyond.

The stairs wind up again to two cosy bedrooms on the second (attic) floor -- with low ceilings for Stuart statures. The first, with twin single childs' beds nestled under the sloping eaves, leads through the trusses to the larger one, curtained off, with a small 4ft double bed. The oval bull's-eye windows enjoy delightful views over the valley.

Location description from owner

The Cotswolds region

The Cotswolds are one of England's best known touring regions of picturesque hills, limestone villages and easy access. The magical deep wooded valleys at Owlpen form its most spectacular scenery.

Golf, gliding, riding, antique shops, historic houses and gardens nearby. But many visitors never leave the privacy of the Owlpen estate, with its miles of footpaths and 800-years of history.

"Is this the most beautiful place in England?"--Fodor's Britain Guide

Tetbury

The Owlpen valley has long been recognised as one of the most romantic places in England and provides guests with an exclusive and relaxing hideaway surrounded by private woods and hills many miles of walks--from a gentle stroll round the estate trails to a 20 mile trek along the Cotswold Way.

This is Laure Lee country, situated in the Royal Triangle in the heart of the Cotswolds hills. The historic cities of Bath, Cheltenham and Cirencester are all within an easy drive, as are the cultural and scenic attractions of Oxford, Blenheim and Stratford Upon Avon, which are popular day excursions. An ideal base for the Horse Trials at Badminton and Gatcombe Park and racing at Cheltenham.

National Trust's Newark Park and Woodchester Mansion are three miles away, as well as many historic houses, including Berkeley Castle, Chavenage House and Sudeley Castle. The choice of attractions and things to see and do is huge and you will need to return to see and explore it all.

“Peaceful retreat on a countryside estate”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2016

The Court House cottage on the Owlpen Manor was exactly what we wanted in our Cotswold escape: picturesque, historic, well-placed and welcoming. We had a party of four and while the cottage can be considered 'tight' on the inside, the split levels allow for privacy and quiet time. The gardens on the estate are lovely and well maintained, and the surrounding area is what you expect in the Cotswold - quintessential England. Bella was easy to coordinate with and made the admin aspects of our trip hassle free. Thanks!

It was a pleasure having you to stay at Owlpen and we hope you come back again in the future!
