About the property


Upper Court is a stunning historical estate in the pretty Cotswold village of Kemerton in Gloucestershire. The Herfords have been welcoming guests to Upper Court for over 40 years and, although we are always up-dating things, we hope our original guests still find the special atmosphere they first came for. Our five self catering holiday cottages are set in 15 acres of magnificent grounds and gardens. Sleeping between two and eleven guests individually and greater numbers in combination, they offer superb self catering holiday accommodation for a couple, family, extended family or large group wishing to stay in the Cotswolds. Excellent fun for hen parties with plenty to do in the area and our pottery onsite. Coach House can seat up to 28 for dinner or we are now proud owners of our village pub which is just a 3 minute walk up the lane.

About Diana Herford

Bill and Diana Herford welcome guests to Upper Court. This has been their home now for over 35 years and seen their family grow up here. They live in the Manor House in the centre of the grounds. Bill is still an active gardener and Diana is certainly busy with the upkeep of Upper Court whilst being actively part of village life here in the conservation area of Kemerton.

Why Diana Herford chose Cotswold district

Upper Court Estate is at the foot of Bredon Hill. Escape in to the country and be refreshed by the open space and wonderful wildlife. Kemerton is a small village but a busy one and Upper Court is the perfect place for a family get together or a quiet romantic weekend for two. Not far from the M5 and only 10 miles from Cheltenham it is wonderfully situated.

What makes this cottage unique

The 5 self catering cottages are of varying sizes and guests can find the one to suit them. We have on site pottery, tennis courts, croquet lawn, outdoor pool and wonderful grounds. As the seasons change, you can wake to birdsong, see foxes trotting along by the lake, seasonal migrants coming to the lake in winter and enjoy all that our quiet conservation area has to offer.
