GRADE 1 LISTED LIVING
The Birdwood family have spent decades creating an English idyll. Our large party arrived for a self-catering weekend celebration, the animal lovers immediately adoring Hugo's dog Sherlock, who lapped up the attention. Lapping sounds were also made by those who delighted in the outdoor pool, bathed in summer sunshine. The rustic charm of this location and its group of buildings is impossible to deny, when you find yourself in the presence of roof timbers dating back to the Battle of Waterloo. Repeat visitors will see the continued growth of this property, described as a work in progress. Venturing out, Shipton Moyne is ideally placed for Tetbury, Highgrove and elsewhere in the Cotswolds. Sunday lunch at the unforgettably named The Cat & Custard Pot was an enjoyable experience, concluding our lovely weekend. Attentive hosts ensured enjoyment was assured!
Thank you so much for the lovely review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Very pretty, comfortable cottage with a great pool and lots of character
We enjoyed staying in the cottage. The pool was great.
It was very comfortable and clean.
Only minor point was some of the showers appeared to be electric but wouldn’t provide hot water unless the hot water was on and 2 of them cut out after a short shower and we had to wait for 10 minutes before they would work again.
Thank you for your review and letting us know about the showers. I will get them checked out and make sure they are working properly for our next guests.
Really lovely house. Looks even lovelier than the pictures suggest.
Peaceful and pretty
We used this property to celebrate our Golden Wedding with family and friends
The cottage was very comfortable everything was provided for our stay we only had to take our food, and personal things lovely bed linen and towels for inside and outside use, we would recommend this property as a good place to stay and some lovely places to visit, we had our celebration meal over the road at the Cat & Custard Pot very good food and not expensive.
Lovely barn conversion, great stay
Sherwood was just right for an extended-family weekend. Downstairs bedroom and wet room for my in laws and lots of space upstairs and down for the remaining 9 of us. Great showers apart from one downstairs. Lovely quirky layout and very well equipped (apart from the WiFi which just wasn’t adequate for a large group). The pool area is beautiful and we were very glad to be able to use it after a hot afternoon at Westonbirt Arboretum.
The directions got us to the property but after the owners showed the first arrivals to the door, the rest of us couldn’t find it - definitely needs some signage or even a name plate on the gate.
Great stay and would definitely visit again for a large group.
Very Nice accommodation
Great base for exploring the Southern end of the Cotswolds
Our property is located between the two beautiful market towns of Malmesbury and Tetbury on the Wiltshire/Gloucestershire border. Malmesbury Abbey is well worth a visit as is the outstanding Georgian Gothic Parish Church of Tetbury and Chavenage House, setting for may scenes of Poldark. Our nearest large town is Cirencester, heart of Roman England. Bath with its recently renovated Thermal Baths, Bristol, home of Brunel's SS Great Britain, Cheltenham with it racecourse and Gloucester are all within easy driving distance and is Swindon with the famous Outlet Shopping Centre. Shipton Moyne is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with easy walking from the village. There is easy access from us to the Fosse Way and the Cotswold Way. Westonbirt Arboreteum is a couple of miles away as is the Beaufort Polo Club. Day trips include Warwick Castle, Longleat House and Park, Cotwold Wildlife Park and Bowood. Gatcombe and Badminton Horse trials are also within easy reach of our cottage.
