About the property

Cottage in Mickleton, Chipping Campden, The Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, England - Peaceful Location But Very Close To All Amenities

Ostlers Cottage has been completely refurbished to a high standard, including 2 new ensuite shower rooms for 2014. The emphasis is on quality and comfort which is reflected in the decor, furnishings and facilities throughout this lovely cottage. Original exposed beams, oak flooring and an Aga wood burner in the sitting room all provide the character iuand atmosphere you would expect from a cottage in the Cotswolds. Efficient electric radiators and heated towel rails keep the cottage warm and cosy even if the woodburner is not lit. Bed linen, towels, kindling and logs are provided, as is a barbecue for when the weather is kind. The courtyard garden is secluded and sheltered providing a lovely place to sit and relax at any time of day. Well behaved dogs are welcome (max 2 at a time) and storage for bicycles is available upon request. Dedicated off road parking for 2 cars is included within Greyrick Court just outside the cottage.

About Keith Walby

Keith and Jacquie have lived in Mickleton for over 23 years where they farm 140 acre organically. They have owned rental property for a number of years and prefer to manage the properties themselves so that they can be sure that their guests are receiving the very best service. As they live only a mile from Ostlers Cottage they are nearly always at hand if there are any queries or help is needed with anything. An added service offered with this cottage is B&B for your horse or horses. Keith and Jacquie run a small livery yard at their farm and are able to offer stabling and turn out for guests' horses from April to November.

A welcome tray including homemade cake will be awaiting you, fresh flowers throughout the cottage and in the winter the wood burner will be laid ready to be lit.

Why Keith Walby chose Chipping Campden

The Cotswolds and Shakespeare Country meet at the village of Mickleton, immediately beneath the Cotswold escarpment and overlooked by the infamous Meon Hill. It is therefore perfectly situated, with Chipping Campden only 3 miles away to the south and Stratford upon Avon only 10 miles to the north.

Mickleton is the most northerly of the Cotswold villages containing a mixture of attractive Cotswold stone houses and cottages, thatch and half-timber buildings, and the Norman St Lawrence’s Church, dating from the 12th century.

The village is home to "The Pudding Club" at the Three Ways House Hotel (featured in many TV shows). Membership is not required so it is easy to sample their wonderful desserts only a few steps from the cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

As well as the hotel Mickleton has 2 pubs (The Kings Arms and The Butchers Arms), a well-stocked village shop (mini supermarket) plus a post office, a butcher and several farm shops for fresh local vegetables and other produce, including local artisan bread.

There are plenty of walks in the area, including a picturesque 30 minute up-hill walk via a footpath from the village church to Kiftsgate Gardens, with the National Trusts’ world renowned Hidcote Manor Gardens a couple of hundred yards beyond.

If you enjoy cycling there is a traffic free cycle path to Stratford–upon-Avon via 'The Greenway' and numerous quiet lanes to explore. With Stratford upon Avon so close, why not enjoy an evening at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre?

Perfect spot for taking in the Cotswolds

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights in this cosy cottage, comfortable and very well equipped. Handy for visits to Stratford or Cotswold villages like Bourton-on-the-water, Chipping Campden & Stow. Local bus service plus amenities like a well stocked shop and three places to eat all in easy walking distance. Would also recommend a visit to Batsford Arboratum especially at this time of year with the leaves changing colour. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. I might just suggest a stronger reading light in the lounge as it can be quite dark in the evenings with the current lighting.

We provide a holiday let and appreciate the work that goes into making our stay so enjoyable.

A lovely location with everything you want on the doorstep.

Thank you and we hope to return.
