Anne Boleyn is a charming dog-friendly, 2 bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 1 double room and 1 twin room, with 1 family bathroom. The cottage is part of a terrace (between Queen Mary and Lord High Admiral), a two-storey property with a well-equipped open plan kitchen/dining area and spacious living room that leads out through French doors to a seating area with countryside views.
Guests staying at Anne Boleyn Cottage enjoy complimentary (other than separately ticketed events) day-time entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens during the open season.
Please be aware that under no circumstances are additional guests above the maximum capacity allowed at the property, for day visits or overnight stays. If you are found to be in breach of this, you will be asked to leave the property and reported.
This pretty, terraced cottage is named after Henry VIII’s second wife, Anne Boleyn, who spent a week at Sudeley Castle with her husband in 1535. The cottage sleeps four people, is dog friendly, and can additionally accommodate a cot.
Guests enter Anne Boleyn Cottage through the covered front door into the open plan kitchen/dining room. Beside the dining area is a handy under stairs cupboard housing baby, cleaning and ironing equipment.
The kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, crockery and glassware you need for a self-catering holiday, including a Neff oven & Hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, kettle and Nespresso coffee machine. A welcome pack of teabags, Nespresso coffee pods, hot chocolate, milk, biscuits, jam/honey mini pots, boiled sweets is provided for your first day at the Cottage.
A back door opens from the kitchen out to a small seating area. The kitchen overlooks the rear of the property towards the River Isbourne.
Off the kitchen/dining area, and down two stairs, is the living room with a large double sofa, two comfy arch chairs, a coffee table, occasional tables and a flat screen TV with DVD player, and French doors out to the seating area.
The main bedroom is entered via a large dressing area with a wardrobe and dressing table. Step down two steps to the bedroom, featuring a double divan bed with bedside tables and touch-dim bedside lamps, and a pretty window with countryside views.

On your Doorstep
Supermarkets and Shopping:
The town itself benefits from several small supermarkets, including The Co-Operative Food and Warner’s Budgens, both well-stocked with fresh produce and store cupboard essentials. Vale & Hills Family Butchers offers fantastic, local meat on the town’s high street, with a host of delicious goodies available at North’s Bakery for those in search of a fresh morning loaf.
Wesley House (200 metres)
White Hart Inn (200 metres)
North Street (300 metres)
The Winchcombe Way, a 42-mile figure-of-eight trail centred around the town, offers walkers a great way of discovering the surrounding Cotswold towns and villages section-by-section over the course of a stay, whilst there are plenty of options for those looking for a more casual, leisurely pace within a close radius of the cottage. We recommend the Sudeley Castle Circular walk for a relaxing stroll; a 2-mile loop setting off straight from the cottage’s front door, taking you into the grounds of historic Sudeley Castle - a must-visit for any guest. The 2.5 mile walk to Belas Knap, a Neolithic chambered long barrow sat atop Cleeve Hill, is also a great walk to try from the doorstep, providing you don’t mind the incline.
During your stay at Sudeley Castle Country Cottages you are entitled to free admission to Sudeley Castle and Gardens during the Castle’s open season (except for separately ticketed events). If you wish to visit the Castle and gardens during your stay, please take your room key or booking receipt with you to the admissions desk. Steeped in a thousand years of history, Sudeley Castle makes for a fascinating day out, not to mention the vast number of events also taking place throughout the year.

This is, by far, the cleanest property we have ever stayed in. The cottages are just gorgeous & perfectly decorated with all the necessary amenities. Great for young or older families or just with friends. It is quintessentially English! The location is just perfect to explore the Cotswolds with Broadway a 15 minute drive away. The village is literally a two minute walk & again is just delightful. We will definitely be recommending to family & friends & will return at a later date!
Tina - Sept 2021
Lovely cottage. Winchcombe is a good base to explore Cotswolds, Oxford, Stratford upon Avon.
A couple of minor issues were sorted extremely quickly
Yvonne - August 2021
As a family of 4, plus 2 dogs, the accommodation was everything we could wish for. Set in a lovely village, which is well worth exploring, the cottage was really well equipped with all modern facilities and premium appliances. Parking was just at the back, behind the small patio area. The beds very very comfortable with all bedding and towels provided The shower was great, plenty of storage in the bedrooms and full central heating for when it got chilly. My only niggle was the vacuum which was useless and no mop for the floors
Are already looking to visit again in October.

Lovely cottage in a great location just right for a short break. Very well appointed and spotlessly clean on arrival.
Had a lovely break here celebrating husbands 60th. Ideal location for walks and a short walk into town itself. Would recommend
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! See Local Amenities or the Winchcombe guidebook for more information.
