Situated on the eastern fringe of Moreton-in-Marsh, Old Wellington Court is a sympathetic conversion of a Grade 2 Listed former Coaching Inn. The former Inn together with its adjacent outbuildings has been creatively enhanced and embellished to provide seven high-calibre dwellings set around a landscaped courtyard.

No. 2 is the former gateway into the courtyard, and has been converted into a cosy single story cottage with vaulted ceilings and exposed stonework.

Old Wellington Court enjoys a superb position within easy walking distance of the town centre. It is set in the picturesque Cotswold countryside renowned for its country walks and flawless scenery.

Great hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in a lovely cottage in Moreton in Marsh. Everything was very convenient and after one week we got fresh towels and bed duvets. Everything we needed was in the cottage. Everything was clean. Thanks to Jonathan and Yvonne Hill!

We found the property to be as much as one could wish for our holiday.The decor was tasteful as well as the furniture,etc. All that was needed was provided,to make it an enjoyable weeks holiday for us. Unfortunately we did find the traffic noise to be somewhat disturbing,so early early in the morning.

Absolutely beautiful home away from home !!!

  • 4 of 5

My Mum and I stayed in this glorious cottage for 2 weeks. We certainly were not disappointed. The Cottage was just how I imagined from the photos, if not better!! Such a lovely comfortable cottage to enjoy the Cotswolds. Great Location, Great area, as it was two ladies travelling alone, we felt very safe and secure within the cottage and the beautiful surrounding area.

Everything we needed/wanted was in the cottage. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone travelling around the Cotswolds and wanting a cosy, comfortable place to stay.

good

  • 4 of 5

everything was nice and as described so thanks for that. a good location and a well presented property. would recommend to others to go there. The only thing that was not good was that the summer temperature was quite warm at night and the bed has a very warm winter duvet on which somewhat spoilt my sleep each night as it was very warm. it would be useful to have a lighter duvet option also available.

Well Furnished Cottage In A Centrally Located Cotswold Town

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our five night stay at Jonathan’s cottage. It was clean and well furnished with lots of amenities. We especially appreciated the washer/ dryer. The welcome package included a delicious chocolate cake. Two well stocked grocery stores are located in the town center which is a less than a 15 minute walk from the cottage. We had no issue finding street parking near the place.

Moreton-in-Marsh made an ideal base to visit the nearby picturesque Cotswold villages and other attractions in the area such as Blenheim Palace and Hidcote Manor Garden. Day trips to Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon were easily manageable. We used the Park & Rides in these towns and avoided the hassle of finding parking in the town center. The drive to Heathrow when we departed was straight forward. We left the cottage mid-morning and were able to return our rental car, check in and have a leisurely lunch with plenty of time to spare before boarding our 3:00 flight to Chicago.

There is some street noise but it quiets down later in the evening and did not disturb our sleep.

Would return again.

Fantastic location at a fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage, with all its amenities and comfort. We did not hire a car, so the proximity to the tiny--but super-- train station plus the bus just blocks down the road at the "turnaround" really helped. We used this wonderful Moreton-in-Marsh to travel to villages then hike many miles on the trails.

We so appreciate the timely response from our hosts to our questions, and the "goodies" that were left for our arrival. We valued the extreme cleanliness of the cottage and the change of towels and tidy-up since we stayed three weeks. Also, the organization of information and travel advice was helpful. We used the 3 day Cotswolds Explorer pass three times and now have memories of its amazing countryside.

The bed was comfortable, and yes, there is a little traffic noise, but it quiets down at a reasonable hour. (By the way, the pictures do not do this cottage justice.)

You should book this cottage now! If I could, my husband and I would have booked for months!

Location

From the Owner

Looking ahead to retirement, we were keen to put down some roots back in the UK. We have no real association with the area, but it is a short drive from our daughter and other family. We are happiest in a rural community and were attracted by the stunning beauty of the Cotswolds. At the moment, our visits back to the UK tend to be short and infrequent, so we decided that others should benefit from the delights of Moreton-in-Marsh and the local area when we are not 'in residence'

Activity and Interests

Travel:

Moreton is on the mainline railway from London to Worcester. Direct trains to London Paddington leave from Moreton at least every hour.

Distances:

Birmingham airport 45 miles approx 1 hour and Heathrow airport 68 miles approx 1.5 hours hour by car. Moreton-in-Marsh main line railway station is 10 minutes walk away and there are several local bus routes.

Further Details:

Moreton-in-Marsh is a traditional North Cotswold market town steeped in history. It offers a perfect balance of amenities. Of particular note are the library, post office, sports Facilities along with many pubs, hotels and restaurants.

Moreton-in-Marsh, situated on the northern extremity of the Cotswolds on the Fosse Way, and some of its low-lying countryside was used as an airfield during World War II, famous for the Wellington Bombers that were based there. This gives a clue to the history of Old Wellington Court. The popularity of the Wellington Inn with local RAF officers and staff, along with its connection with the Wellington Bombers has always been seen as a pivotal point in the building's history.

The Wellington Bomber was the longest-serving of the trio of medium bombers with Bomber Command at the outset of World War 2, and was affectionately known as the 'Wirnpey' by its crews. It flew on many of the defining operations until its last bombing mission over Germany in October 1943, although a few aircraft soldiered on with specialist units within the Command until January 1945. Moreton-in-Marsh's connection with the Wellington can still be seen today at the local Wellington Aviation Museum.

The town abounds with historical connections. It developed during the thirteenth century as a market town with a wide main street, narrow burgage plots and back lanes. Moreton has been a traveller's town for at least 1700 years and was used as a coaching station before the coming of the Oxford to Worcester railway in 1853.

In more recent times, the town's Tolkien connections have been recognized by the J R R Tolkien Society and the various landmarks in the town are thought to have inspired Tolkien's works. The Bell Inn is thought to be the inspiration behind The Prancing Pony, Middle Earth's most famous pub in the book 'Lord of the Rings'. Moreton in Marsh might well be the town of Bree, where the hobbits find the Prancing Pony on a cold, rainy night.

Facilities

From the Owner

We love the convenience of Old Wellington Court. It is lovely to be able to walk into Moreton, either to the market, or for a drink or a meal in the evening. We are golfers, so the numerous good courses in the area were a definite bonus, and there is so much else to do in the general area.
