Welcome to A Cotswold Cottage!

The Cotswolds boast some of the most picturesque villages in the UK and is a designated 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. A Cotswold Cottage offers a high quality, self catering cottage to rent as the perfect base from which to experience this wonderful part of the country.


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 15 minutes 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.

Local amenities and attractions

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.

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 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?
