Converted from a stable block are two delightful cottages built in traditional honey coloured Cotswold stone, originally a part of an 18th Century Coaching Inn, which was then called The Crown. The stables, were used to accommodate the extra horses required to help pull the coaches up Crickley Hil. The property was bought at the end of the 19th Century by Sir William Thistleton-Dyer who was a director of Kew Gardens. Whether he had renamed it or not we are unsure but at that time it was called The Ferns then Crickley Court and the sloping land at the rear of the house was apparently well looked after and contained many rare and unusual plants. The cottages are situated within this beautiful setting, surrounded by the vast gardens which are very picturesque. Each has its own private garden and there is also a separate children’s play area with swings, slide and trampoline.

Amber Cottage is a very nicely-presented, clean and well-equipped cottage with great character. Although located on the owners' property the cottage has its own pleasant garden. While there is some road noise from the nearby A417 this does not spoil the cottage, which is situated off a very pleasant country road with minimal traffic and plenty of nearby footpaths. Highly recommended.

Fantastic cottage in the Cotswolds. We loved our stay at Amber cottage. The location is perfect for exploring the area. We loved sitting out in the garden and using the bbq. Highly recommend staying at Amber Cottage.
A great place to stay, total relaxation with great amenities.
Great stay in Amber Cottage. Used it for a couple of nights whilst visiting the Flyup bike park, which is extremely close. Everything as, or better than expected. Facilities great, very clean, super easy.
A lovely cosy stable conversion in a rural location but still only 15 mins away from Cheltenham. Comfy beds. Clean and well stocked kitchen. Would return in the future.
