About the property

Whitsun Cottage - a cottage that sleeps 6 guests in 2 bedrooms

Welcome to Whitsun Cottage, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.

Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Whitsun Cottage is a beautiful, double fronted Cotswold stone cottage, clad in Virginia creeper. The cottage is larger than many other properties of its age, with a separate living room, dining room and kitchen, two bathrooms, and higher ceilings than in many comparable properties. The cottage also benefits from an enclosed courtyard garden and its location in the heart of the picturesque market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, which has a wide range of bars, restaurants and cafes, as well as being ideally placed for exploring the wider Cotswold region.

The cottage dates back to the 19th century and has been beautifully refurbished, whilst retaining numerous character features, including wooden floors and beams, two exposed stone fireplaces with wood burning stoves, ledge and brace doors, and a lovely oak stair-rail. Complementing this raft of character features, the cottage has modern facilities, including wireless internet access, Freesat TV and a well equipped kitchen.

The cottage sleeps a maximum of 4+2 people (see bed configuration below), in two bedrooms and a large landing space, with two bathrooms. It is an ideal retreat for a family or a group of friends.

Flexible arrival and departure days may be possible - please contact us to discuss your requirements.

Booking and payment

Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.

All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.

Security deposits

Security deposits are not required at Whitsun Cottage (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).

Occupancy

The maximum occupancy of the property is six guests, including infants and babies.

Pets

Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

Arrival and departure times

Arrival time is after 3pm and departure time is by 10am. Access is via a key safe, therefore it does not matter if you are arriving late at night.

Bed sizes and configurations

Bedroom 1: Double bed

Bedroom 2: 2 x 75cm wide single beds

Landing: Day bed + trundle bed

Fuel and logs

Electricity and gas are included in the rental price. An initial supply of logs and firelighters are provided for the wood burning stoves and further supplies can be purchased locally.

Services provided

The property has free wireless internet access and a Freesat TV with DVD player.

There is no telephone at the property. Mobile phone reception is generally OK, although it can be variable on some networks.

Parking

Free on street parking is readily available a short walk away from the property (luggage can be unloaded directly outside the cottage).

Housekeeping

Where a letting exceeds nine nights, a mid-stay clean, bed linen and towel change may be included in the price. Please check with us to confirm. Additional housekeeping services are not available at this property.

Child friendly facilities

A travel cot (without linen), high chair and safety gate are provided. There is also a small selection of games and DVDs.

The property's courtyard garden is fully enclosed.

Initial consumables

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.

Accessibility, health and safety

The property has two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.

The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk.

The front door of the property opens onto the street and guests with young children should take particular care to ensure that the children are supervised when the door is opened.

Smoking

No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Other

The property is located on one of Stow's busier roads and some guests may be aware of traffic noise at night. The cottage is, however, relatively close to a junction, so traffic speed is limited past the house.

Photographs

In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas. If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
