Charles I - sleeps 3 guests in 0 bedrooms

Sudeley Castle Country Cottages are the perfect choice for family holidays, reunions and wedding guest accommodation. The cottages are in an Area of Outstand Natural Beauty, surrounded by glorious rolling Cotswold countryside, yet are only a few minutes walk from the historic town of Winchcombe, with its many pubs and a Michelin Star restaurant. This small attractive complex of 11 Cotswold stone cottages is set around a central courtyard with landscaped gardens and ample parking.

The cottages each have their own individual charm. Most have been cleverly restored and converted from existing properties, retaining many original and unique features. The newer cottages are sympathetic in their design and architecture, seamlessly blending into the complex. Sudeley Castle Cottages are the ideal choice for a walking or touring holiday, or simply as an escape into the Cotswold countryside.

Accommodation is carefully prepared for your arrival, with towels and bedding provided. The cottages are comfortably furnished and have well equipped kitchens. A new WiFi system was installed in 2014, enabling guests to stream programmes onto their smartphone or tablet.

The cottages have access to shared gardens and each has its own garden furniture. Travel cots, high chairs and stair gates are available on request free of charge and a laundry service is available. Guests enjoy complimentary admission to Sudeley Castle & Gardens for the duration of their stay (during normal opening hours in the season).

Sudeley Castle Cottages are available all year round for weekend breaks, mid-week breaks or longer stays. Pets are welcome at five of our cottages, although we do ask that you respect our “Pets Code of Conduct”.

            • Sleeps 3; Pets allowed This apartment, which sleeps 3 people, is converted from the old forge. It is named in memory of Charles I, who took refuge at Sudeley Castle after his failed siege of Gloucester during the English Civil War. Guests staying at Charles I enjoy complimentary entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens (during the season). The accommodation is arranged over two floors. Downstairs it comprises a lounge, dining area and fully equipped kitchen. For your entertainment, there is a flat screen TV and DVD player, whilst a new WiFi system provides you with access to the internet. A pretty divided staircase leads upstairs to each bedroom, one of which is a double and the other is single bedded. The bathroom was completely refitted in winter 2016 and has a hand basin, WC and walk-in shower. Fluffy towels and bedding are provided for all guests. Charles I shares a decking area with Prince Rupert and George III, with each apartment having its own seating area. Pets are allowed, although we do ask that you respect our “Pets Code of Conduct”.

              Great location but poor customer service and expensive for what it is

              Steve N.Cheddar, United Kingdom

              Great location. Bathroom heating not working (we went early april) and shower temperature too low. Asked for it to be fixed but nothing happenned. No microwave in kitchen.

              Outside is decking area you have to walk across to get to apartment. Looks good but very slippery when wet. I had a bad fall so watch out!

              Expensive for what it is, but may be the location that causes that.

              Sudly Castle self catering

              The grounds of the Castle are fantastic, the Castle imposing. The village near by picturesque The houses new but need maintenance. For example where we stayed the lamp cover near the bed was broken. It was dangerous as it was hanging on top of my head. No one had noticed, neither we bothered to ask any one.

              The people in the castle attentive. We had a problem with the heavy curtains and came fixed it at once.

              Usually in self catering accommodation the host provides a little something on arrival i.e. a bottle of water, milk, a few biscuits etc. The kitchen was well equipped BUT had NOTHING.

              If you go you must take something with you cause ~Cheltenham is a little far to go shopping if you arrive at 11pm as we did.

              All in all however a nice place to stay for a couple of days certainly if you like walking.

              A Delightful Break

              Helen S.Nottingham, United Kingdom

              The cottage was perfect as a base for exploring the Cotswolds. An additional bonus was an excellent pub within easy walking distance. Being able to visit Sudeley Castle whenever we wished also made the whole experience special.

              Our only complaint was on our arrival. We had booked well in advance and the instructions we had received to access our cottage were no longer relevant. Thankfully the office at the castle was still open and a phone call gave us the correct code to open our door. Had we arrived an hour later we would have been forced to book into a hotel. Apart from that hiccup the stay was delightful.

              Lovely Cottage

              Patricia T.Brackley, United Kingdom

              Lovely cottage and location.

              Would happily stay again and definitely recommend.

              Thank you Sudeley Castle Cottages.
