A perfectly appointed cottage within a few paces of the elegant and royally connected Cotswold market town of Tetbury, Old Stables No. 2 sleeps 5 guests across 3 bedrooms (1 king-size, 1 double, 1 single), with 1 family shower room and a private, enclosed courtyard garden. The cottage has beautiful walks from the doorstep and is situated between two great local pubs and a stone’s throw from the town’s vibrant art centre, Tetbury Goods Shed. A great location for visiting Highgrove, Badminton, Gatcombe, Westonbirt, Cotswold Water Park and Malmesbury.
Perched on the side of The Chipping, above the picture-perfect green that lies at the bottom of the infamous Gumstool Hill, sits Old Stables No.2, an attractive, semi-detached Cotswolds holiday cottage. Offering both excellent amenities and a fabulous location, Old Stables No. 2 provides a warm welcome for visitors looking to explore this enchanting area of the English countryside.
From the outside, Old Stables No. 2 epitomises a typical Cotswold holiday home, with its natural Cotswold stone and pretty Cotswold green window frames. The cottage has a large, shared front patio and a private, enclosed courtyard patio to the rear, accessed via a gated side path, where guests can relax and enjoy dining al fresco. In the warmer months, the courtyard is filled with colour from the blooms of an array of wall-climbing plants.
Inside, the cottage is well-equipped and comfortably furnished. A cosy living room and spacious, well-equipped kitchen/dining area comprise the ground floor. Upstairs, guests have use of three bedrooms, including a master bedroom with king-size bed, a double bedroom, and a small single bedroom, with a family shower room between the three bedrooms.
Old Stables No. 2 can be rented with its neighbour 1, Old Stables (sleeps 5 guests in 3 bedrooms).
Step through the front door into an enclosed porch – a handy space to remove your coats and footwear before heading inside.

This is such a lovely place. Super clean, close to everything you could need. Thanks.
Great Location to explore the Cotswolds. Cottage was perfect for our family and had everything we needed.
Great place to stay and straight forward check in etc.
Great little cottage, lovely space to unwind after exploring the Cotswolds and local area.
If you’re a lover of all things vintage or antique, Tetbury is undoubtedly the place for you - the town regularly features in Drew Pritchard’s Salvage Hunters - with several antique stores on the high street. There’s an abundance of stylish and arty cafes, boutiques and pubs, and Prince Charles’ Tetbury residence-inspired shop Highgrove. There are some wonderful walking routes to explore right from the front door and the Tetbury Goods Shed, with its eclectic mix of music, art and theatre is a minute away.
In addition, there are several local places of interest within a 10-mile radius, including Nailsworth, the National Trust’s Newark Park, Westonbirt Arboretum, Owlpen Manor, the Matara Centre, Woodchester Mansion, Highgrove House, Badminton, and Gatcombe Park.
