The simple and traditional red brick exterior of Chestnut Cottage hides a beautifully stylish and modern interior, where contemporary styling and thoughtful furnishings have created a sophisticated and welcoming rural retreat. Lying in the beautiful countryside within walking distance of Winchcombe’s medieval charms, this delightful property sleeps four guests in two spacious king-size bedrooms. With a fabulous bathroom including a standalone bathtub, plenty of parking and a peaceful terrace to the rear, this is the perfect place from which to explore the Cotswolds.
Full Description
Surrounded by trees and the sound of birdsong, with gently rolling hills in the background, Chestnut Cottage offers a stylish place to stay within walking distance of Winchcombe. As you turn off the main road onto the tiny tree-lined country lane, the scene is set perfectly for your stay.

The entrance door leads into a long hallway, which runs in both directions, the wooden flooring creates a warm feel and multiple windows let in plenty of natural light. There are two spacious king-size bedrooms, with windows overlooking a green paddock to the rear, a beautiful bathroom with a double-ended bathtub, perfect for lazy bubble-filled soaks and a large, separate shower, plus a sunny kitchen-diner and a living room, with double doors out to a private patio.

Outside there is an enclosed private patio, with an access gate into the large paddock, surrounded by trees. Enjoy relaxed meals from the barbecue and soak up the rural landscape that surrounds you. The owners have rescue hens and lovely fresh eggs will often be available to purchase from an honesty box.

Ground Floor

Entrance Hall:
The long entrance hall runs in both directions from the front door with a wooden floor underfoot and plenty of windows letting in natural light. The natural lay of the land is sloping and the hall is multi-level, with two steps down towards the bathroom, two steps up to one of the bedrooms and two further steps up to the living areas. A long full-length mirror hangs at one end and the walls are lined with cupboards, providing useful storage.

This bright, sunny room has a warm wooden floor, windows looking out to the courtyard at the front and paddock to the rear and has everything you need to prepare delicious meals. The well-equipped kitchen includes a range of built-in appliances with a washer-dryer, dishwasher and fridge with a small freezer box hidden neatly behind the smooth grey cupboard doors. A traditional butlers sink is set beneath the window looking out over the countryside beyond. The round wooden dining table seats four comfortably and is a cosy spot for sunny breakfasts and relaxed evening meals.

Living Room:
From the kitchen, there is a door into the living room, which is a light and airy space with windows on two sides and double doors out to the private patio. Bright pops of colour come from the two velvet sofas, one cobalt blue, the other moss green and a honey-hued rug covering the wooden floor. There’s further seating with a mid-century leather chair set by the patio doors. Industrial style shelving highlights the rural, yet modern feel as does the stylish wall mirror, lighting, circular glass coffee table and wooden TV unit which houses the smart TV.

Bedroom One:
With a super-soft carpet on the floor and a comfortable king-size bed, strewn with woollen cushions and a William Morris design bedspread, this spacious room is warm and inviting. Beautiful rural views add to the feeling of calm and a glass pendant light adds a touch of glamour. Twin bedside tables stand on either side of the bed with reading lamps and storage comes in the form of a chest of drawers. There are also three hanging hooks on the wall and further storage can be found in the hallway cupboards.

Bedroom Two:
Boasting the same lovely rural views as bedroom one, this is a beautifully light and spacious room. The king-size bed has a William Morris bedspread and print cushions and two bedside tables with on-trend pineapple reading lamps sitting on either side. There’s a chest of drawers, a dressing table and two hanging hooks, plus a wardrobe with hanging space can be found in the hall opposite the bedroom door.

Bathroom/Shower Room:
After a day tramping through the countryside retreat to this stylish and spacious bathroom, pour a glass of something chilled, fill the standalone bathtub with bubbles and relax. There’s also a separate rainfall shower, WC, and a vanity unit with a handbasin and a well-lit mirror.


To the rear of the property, accessed through the double patio doors in the living room there is a private patio, enclosed by a picket fence and overlooking a grassy, tree-lined paddock. Guests are welcome to enjoy this space and there is an access gate from your patio. There’s a wooden table and bench-style seating, perfect for alfresco meals or simply enjoying a drink as you soak up the countryside views around you. A charcoal barbecue is also provided and there is parking for two/three cars in the courtyard at the front of the cottage.

Winchcombe itself is a “walkers are welcome” town, a special status awarded to towns and villages which go above and beyond with their walking amenities, making it a fantastic destination for groups in search of a walking break.

The small lane leading to the entrance to Postlip House is also a public footpath that leads to the Cotswold Way and Winchcombe. Turn right out of the black double gates until you come to the River Isbourne. At the river, turn left and follow the footpath to a local road junction. Follow this road to the right. You will shortly come to the Cotswold Way which takes you into Winchcombe and joins with the Winchcombe Way. Trace your footsteps back or make a large loop eventually back to Postlip House Cottages via a combination of the Winchcombe Way, Cotswold Way, and local footpaths.

Newly refurbished property finished to a high standard. Stylishly and comfortably furnished. Quiet and peaceful area. Overlooks a large, fenced grass area at the back which is great for the dog. Excellent location to explore the Cotswolds. Only a short walk from Winchcombe. Lovely place to relax and unwind.

The cottage is absolutely beautiful and the location is perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. The beds are so comfortable and the quiet idyllic location meant it was a perfect respite. The hosts were very responsive to a question I had, cannot wait to go back!

The chestnut cottage is fantastic. It’s in a lovely location. The whole building is well thought out and very spacious. The bathroom is superb and the underfloor heating in there makes a hell of a difference. The equipment supplied is everything that you need. We even purchased eggs from the egg store opposite! The bed we used was lovely and comfy and the decor throughout is perfect. It’s so quiet and this makes for a good night's sleep. The TV is great and has all the channels you need, Netflix etc. Winchcombe is a fair walk away, a car is best. To be fair once we were snuggled up inside the cottage with provisions we didn’t want to go out anywhere. All in all, this is a brilliant place to relax and unwind, the gated entrance makes you feel safe and secure. Many thanks to the owners for a wonderful stay!

The accommodation was in pristine condition when we arrived and beautifully clean. We were welcomed with a starter pack of milk, sugar, tea bags and coffee which was greatly appreciated. The rooms were a really good size and the lounge opened out to an excellent patio area with fabulous views. I can highly recommend a stay at this cottage!
