Over its vivid and expansive history, Sudeley Castle has played host to many of England's reigning Queens, from Anne Boleyn to Queen Elizabeth. Named in commemoration of all its regal visitors of the past, Queens Cottage is an elegantly converted old engine house that offers guests an open-plan cottage experience.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors. Guests enter from the raised patio/dining area into the long, open-plan living/dining/kitchen area. The living area features a flat-screen Freeview TV and two large sofas, of which one converts into a bed. Further into the property you will find a dining table that can seat 6 and a well-equipped kitchen. To the left of the kitchen is a downstairs bathroom.
Upstairs (via a carpeted staircase with handrail) there is one double bedroom with a king size bed and one very spacious twin bedroom, as well as a large family bathroom with a walk-in shower.
Queens Cottage may be accessed by wheelchair. There is a ramp up to the entrance of the cottage and the downstairs area is spacious and open plan. One of the sofas can be converted into a double bed and there is a downstairs bathroom.
Situated just a short walk from the beautiful Cotswold town of Winchcombe, guests will be spoiled for choice when it comes to things to do and see and places to eat while staying at one of Sudeley's cottages! See ‘Local Amenities' or the Winchcombe guidebook for more information.
