A beautifully restored 2-bedroom cottage in the heart of Winchcombe. This property cannot fail to impress. It has been sympathetically restored with the highest standard of fixtures and fittings you would come to expect from our previous cottage - The Vine. Everything has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Situated in the heart of the Anglo-Saxon town of Winchcombe you are only a stone's throw from the magnificent Sudeley Castle Esate.

N.B. For Stays during November and December you will receive a free basket of logs and enjoy festive touches such as Fairy Lights, Wreath and Foliage over the FirePlace.

As you enter the cottage you walk into the flagstoned floor sitting room with large hearth and log burning stove. Up two steps you walk into the brand new kitchen with four ring induction hob and electric oven, fridge freezer, slimline dishwasher and washer-dryer. To your right is the bathroom with Bath Store bath, shower enclosure, WC and sink. Towards the back of the kitchen is a pretty recess area for dining with upholstered bench seating and dining table. From the back door you climb three steps into the sunny garden terrace complete with patio furniture. A perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine while the sun sets over the town.

Upstairs is the first floor bedroom with king size John Lewis bed, a wardrobe and recessed shelving complete with lined storage baskets. The White Company linen and towels are provided for your comfort.

From this bedroom a narrow staircase leads up to the second floor bedroom which has two full size single beds and a pretty dressing table. Under bed storage is also provided.

Please note that this property is not suitable for people with mobility difficulties due to the number of steps at the property and the twisting narrow staircase. The property was built around 1800 and has many period features.

About Amanda Houghton-Brown

Paul and I had been looking for an investment purchase for a couple of years following the success of our holiday cottage The Vine. Property: 8147381 This is our second holiday cottage in Winchcombe and we have been delighted with how popular the cottage has proved to be in 2016. Whether for tourists visiting The Cotswolds for the first time or regular visitors who join one of the many walking groups we are looking forward to providing a comfortable bolt hole for guests throughout 2017 and beyond. Please email us or request to book for further information.

Amanda Houghton-Brown purchased this house in 2015

Why Amanda Houghton-Brown chose Tewkesbury district

Vineyard Street is the most photographed street in Winchombe and even features on the We LOVE England website. It is a beautiful row of 18th Century cottages and when number 6 came to the market in 2015 we couldn't wait to invest in it. The property has been carefully restored and renovated to live up the expectations of 21st Century guests with free wifi and satellite television.

What makes this house unique

At The Feathered Nest you are on the doorstep of some of the most beautiful Cotswold villages such as Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway and Chipping Camden. The magnificent Sudeley Castle Estate is a short walk away. Within 500yards you are at the gates to the castle and a beautiful driveway leads to the castle itself.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful cottage. We loved everything about it. The kitchen is well equipped, bathroom stylish (with a powerful shower!) and sitting room cosy with a comfy sofa. The bedroom is beautifully decorated with a very comfy bed. The stairs are rather steep which wasn't a problem for us, but maybe for the less mobile.We spent lazy days relaxing in the cottage, afternoons lazing in some of the lovely pubs and even managed the odd walk. Cheltenham is a short drive away and is worth a visit as well as the usual Cotswold villages. Booking was smooth and efficient. We would highly recommend 6 vineyard and would not hesitate to visit again.

charming cottage in a charming village.

  • 5 of 5

6 Vineyard Street is an absolutely lovely place ; from the bright airy kitchen, to the warm living room with wood burning stove, to the cozy bedrooms, it is an ideal get away. The location is fantastic, a non- touristy " real town" with great pubs and charming streets. It is a story book cottage in a story book village.

A charming little gem, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a family trip (three adults) over New Year and had a great time. Winchcombe is a lovely town, although sadly we did not have much time to explore it in full or to try out the local restaurants and pubs. For us the location worked very well as a base to explore Stratford-upon-Avon, Broadway Tower, some of the famous Cotswolds villages and Blenheim Palace. We found parking just outside the cottage (in Vineyard Street) every time we tried. The cottage was very atmospheric and cute but also very well appointed with a fantastic bathroom and modern kitchen (with dining area) as well as the characterful, beamed living room with wood-burning stove. Excellent use of natural light in the bathroom and dining area by way of the roof windows and we would love to come back to the cottage in the spring, summer or autumn to make use of the delightful little courtyard garden. The owner was very helpful and the whole booking and payment process was very easy.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the cottage on Vinyard Street. The restoration of the cottage has been done to a high standard. We especially enjoyed the wonderful bright kitchen. Location could not have been any better. The Cotswolds Way and Winchcombe Way are right outside the door as is Sudley Castle. We took daily walks and spend time in the village. There are several excellent pubs and many shops to explore. We would highly recommend staying at The Feathered Nest.

Winchcombe is a pretty Anglo-Saxon town in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the heart of the Cotswolds. Slightly off the beaten track for many tourists you are not faced with coach loads of tourists each day and this Fair-trade town is exceptionally welcoming to visitors. You are only 10 minutes from Cheltenham and Prestbury Park RaceCourse which holds the Gold Cup each March. The magnificent Sudeley Castle is at the end of the street and many of the cottages are still owned by the Sudeley Estate. Winchcombe has a fantastic number of good pubs and restaurants as well as coffee shops and a brand new Budgens to cater for all your needs.
