Almsbury Farmhouse is one of the largest properties on the Sudeley Estate, accommodating 14 guests comfortably across the main farmhouse and the separate self-contained annexe, which is complete with its own kitchen and living area. Surrounded by open, expansive garden and within just a short walk of both Sudeley Castle and the town of Winchcombe, Almsbury’s location is idyllic. Bursting with unique period features, hidden staircases, surprise rooms and all the utilities and equipment you will need – Almsbury is the ideal property for larger groups and families looking for a little more space.
Spread over three floors, on the ground floor guests have use of a cosy sitting room, impressively large dining room, kitchen, utility room, children’s playroom, downstairs WC and snug/breakfast room. There is access to the first floor via two separate staircases, where three sumptuous king size double bedrooms can be found, two with en-suite bathrooms as well as one family bathroom. Go up a smaller staircase to the second floor, and you will find three twin bedrooms, one is very large with plenty of beanbags – making for a great alternative playroom! There is also another family bathroom on the second floor. The annexe is self-contained, featuring a downstairs kitchen/living area and upstairs double bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Outside, guests have access to a large garden, as well as a raised decking area with outdoor dining furniture.
Lady Ashcombe has taken a special interest in the design and furnishing of the farmhouse and has personally selected works of art, objects and furniture that reflect the history and unique character of the building. Some of the contents come directly from the Castle’s collection, others from local antique shops and auction rooms.

House was really clean, with fresh linen laid out. Kitchen is really well equipped and there is plenty of space for everyone to relax/eat and enjoy the house
The house is in a perfect location, beautifully presented, with a lovely garden and everything you could possibly need. Paul had left us a few lovely treats and a pint of milk on arrival. A perfect weekend getaway for us to recharge our batteries. We had a lovely dinner at the Rose Tree Inn restaurant, definitely worth a visit. Lots of lovely walks right from your doorstep. Highly recommend.
Lovely 4 days spent at Almsbury Farmhouse, perfectly located just a short walk to Winchcombe where there’s takeaways, pubs, shops etc Great place for a family get togethers as there are lots of rooms and also separate lounges and dining rooms. Lovely old rambling farmhouse.
The team who manage the estate were incredible, they were so helpful and available to help. My mother has limited mobility and the farm house was comforting, nurturing and provided all what we needed for a healing retreat. I can’t wait to come again.
Perfect location set within a large village, but also the countryside and nearby Castle. The house was the perfect size for us, with beautiful gardens, and small touches such as free Castle access were great. Would definitely return.
Amazing house with everything we needed. Nice and clean ! Perfect
Ideal for a getaway with the kids. The house was lovely, perfect setting, clean and safe. Massive bonus of having the castle at the end of the road. Really appreciated the “welcome pack” in the Kitchen. Will definately use again
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.
