Summary

Dolly's Cottage is a converted outbuilding, privately located in the large grounds of Nineveh Farm, on the outskirts of the picturesque Cotswolds village of Mickleton. The location is ideal for exploring some of England's finest countryside, towns and villages, being just three miles from Chipping Campden and eight miles from Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon. Many beautiful walks can be taken directly from the doorstep of the cottage.

This former farm building has been lovingly and luxuriously renovated by its owner, to create a cosy and peaceful cottage, with glorious views over open fields. The peace and tranquility of the cottage are complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access (currently being installed – please check availability), flatscreen TV and a well equipped kitchen.

Dolly's Cottage sleeps a maximum of two people, in one bedroom, with one bathroom. Off street parking is available and there is a large private garden, with lovely views over fields. The cottage is an ideal retreat for a couple looking for a peaceful getaway.

Dolly's Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Dolly's Cottage and would recommend a stay here to any body.

We were met by the lovely Donna who I might add made us feel very welcome.

The cottage is finished to a very high standard and ideally located, home from home, brilliant.

We enjoyed our stay so much, that we would not hesitate in going back.

Mickleton

Mickleton is the northernmost village in Gloucestershire, lying close to the county border with Worcestershire and Warwickshire. The village lies in a fine setting in the Vale of Evesham, at the western edge of the Cotswold escarpment, just three miles from Chipping Campden and eight miles south of Shakespeare's Stratford-upon-Avon. Overlooking the village is Meon Hill, which is said to have provided inspiration for Tolkien's 'Weathertop' from The Lord of the Rings.

The village contains several attractive stone houses and cottages, in addition to those of thatch and half-timber. The little Victorian Memorial Fountain is an interesting feature by William Burges, the architect of Cardiff Castle and Castle Coch, two excellent examples of the High Victorian Gothic. Medford House is a handsome 'Cotswold-Queen Anne' style building and the church has a fine 14th century tower and spire, plus a most unusual 17th century two storey porch. Inside the church can be found a 12th century crucifix or rood over the north aisle chapel alter.

Chipping Campden

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.

Shakespeare Country

Shakespeare Country is a loosely defined region, centred on the world famous town of Stratford-upon-Avon, home of William Shakespeare. With magnificent castles, glorious gardens, stately homes and a historic palace, Shakespeare Country offers everything you need for a relaxing short break or a longer holiday. Visit historic Warwick and Kenilworth with their magnificent castles, enjoy regency Royal Leamington Spa and step back in time in Stratford-upon-Avon, or delve a little deeper into Shakespeare Country and you will discover some delightful smaller towns and villages.

The Cotswolds

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.

Food and drink

For a small village, Mickleton is fortunate to be blessed with a number of places to eat and drink:

•The Three Ways House Restaurant (Home to the world famous Pudding Club, which was founded in 1985 to prevent the demise of the traditional great British Pudding)

•The King's Arms

•The Butcher's Arms

Mickleton also has a local butcher, a farm shop and a well stocked convenience store.

There are many excellent places to eat and drink in the wider Shakespeare Country and North Cotswolds area, with the major towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Royal Leamington Spa, 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 pubs located in the lovely villages throughout Shakespeare Country and the North Cotswolds.
