Cotswold cottages for Christmas

Posted: Mon, 3rd Oct 2022

With less than three months to go until the festive season is upon us, there is still time to sprinkle a little yuletide magic on the proceedings with a Christmas staycation. Gather your nearest and dearest around you and book a holiday cottage in the Cotswolds for Christmas. Think crisp winter days, bracing countryside walks and rosy cheeks. Roaring log fires, cosy pubs and where you just might catch a glimpse of Santa’s sleigh dashing across a starry night sky.

Decamp with the extended family to Kington Grange, a glorious country house filled with colour and personality. Deep in the heart of Shakespeare’s country, you are invited to celebrate this Christmas in style.

This is all complemented by seven beautiful bedrooms.   

Tyndale House

With six bedrooms, two living rooms with log burnings stoves including an elegant drawing room and a games room, Tyndale House is a wonderful place for a memorable Christmas celebration.

Afterwards, linger over long, leisurely meals under the vaulted, beamed ceiling in the atmospheric dining room.


Location: Kineton, near Stratford-upon-Avon

Sleeps: 8

This gorgeous village house has everything you need for the perfect family Christmas. Oak beams and inglenook fireplaces, enough twinkling fairy lights to make Ebenezer Scrooge smile and a large garden where little guests can play and run off the sugar rush. For the grown-ups, there’s a ‘garden pub’. Last-minute panic-present buying is undeniably simple with Stratford-upon-Avon,  Warwick and Banbury all within easy reach.

33 Percy Street

Location: Stratford-upon-Avon

Sleeps: 6

Enjoy a traditional Christmas in the birthplace of William Shakespeare, arguably the most famous playwright England has ever known. 33 Percy Street is a stylish and contemporary 1930’s home just a short stroll from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre and the cosy pubs and vibrant restaurants of Stratford-upon-Avon. Walk off Christmas lunch with a meander along the banks of the River Avon, head to the Stratford Playhouse for the time-honoured ritual of a Christmas pantomime or relax with a warming drink by a roaring fire, in one of the town’s timber-framed inns.

Apple Store Cottage

Location: Charlbury

Sleeps: 2

Hidden away in the heart of Charlbury, Apple Store Cottage is an utterly enchanting Cotswold cottage for Christmas, perfect for a romantic and memorable festive escape. Cosy up for a Christmas movie in front of the double-sided log burner, mingle with the locals for a festive tipple in one of the nearby pubs and enjoy exhilarating countryside walks from the doorstep.

Christmas Cottage

Location: Tetbury

Sleeps: 4

Tucked away in historic Gumstool Hill, in the heart of Tetbury who could resist a Christmas escape at the aptly named Christmas Cottage. This delightful Cotswold cottage is filled with character and charm and even though there is a well-equipped kitchen, the many dining options of Tetbury are within an easy stroll. This means you can relax and hand over the pressured reins of cooking the Christmas lunch, to someone else.  

Corner Cottage

Location: Bretforton

Sleeps: 4

This magical cottage fuses 17th-century character and charm with contemporary facilities making it a perfectly splendid spot for a cosy Christmas sojourn.

The award-winning National Trust Fleece Inn is around the corner and always offers a warm and very festive welcome.

Outbak Shepherds Hut

Location: Hailes, near Winchcombe and Broadway

Sleeps: 2

Whilst you won’t need to follow ‘yonder star’ take inspiration from the three wise men this Christmas with a stay in a beautiful shepherd’s hut. Outbak has all the creature comforts you need including central heating. Therefore, even if you wake up to a magical white Christmas, you’ll still be warm and toasty. Rather than a hay-filled manger, there’s a super-comfy king-size bed with countryside views. Outside, there’s a wood-fired hot tub,  the perfect place for a little Santa-spotting.
