The Leigh

Family Friendly
No Pets

Cyder Press House is an idyllic, traditional English farmhouse that sleeps up to 8 (+2) guests, with plenty of garden and outdoor space and sociable features such as a ping-pong table, croquet lawn and games room with 55inch flat-screen TV and Xbox/DVD player. Sleeping 8 guests across 4 bedrooms (2 camp beds available) with 3 bathrooms (2 ensuite) and 2 cloakrooms, this secluded Grade II listed farmhouse is perfect for a family gathering or get-to-together with friends.

Full Description

Built in 1667, Cyder Press House offers both an opportunity to immerse yourself in olde worlde England from centuries ago, while providing the 21st century home comforts that ensure a comfortable stay. As you drive up to the property, you will be struck by the property’s attractive exterior, featuring Tudor-style paneling, a beautiful lawn + patio area, and, if you’re visiting in the spring/summer months, you’ll see the farmhouse in full bloom – shrouded in climbing foliage and rose bushes.

Cyder Press House is ideal for families and larger groups, particularly those looking for plenty of open space where they can explore and relax. This is a great place for those wanting to holiday together with plenty of activities on-site, including ping-pong, a playroom and a games room with foosball and Xbox. The House sleeps 8 guests in 4 bedrooms, 2 of which are en-suite, 1 family bathroom and 2 additional WCs. Children will love the winding gardens at Cyder Press House (perfect for a game of hide and seek!), with plenty of outdoor games to choose from such as a covered ping pong table, swingball, croquet set, hula-hoops and much more! Weather permitting, guests can enjoy a BBQ and dinner al fresco with a complete patio outdoor dining suite and comfy rattan furniture, as well as multiple seating areas around the gardens and property.

Inside, Cyder Press House is everything you may expect of a 17th Century farmhouse, with fine craftsmanship, wooden beams, large fireplaces, flagstone floors and lots of wonderful little nooks and crannies. However, you haven’t completely stepped back in time, there is also every convenience you would expect from a 21st Century home. The kitchen is spacious and very well equipped featuring an AGA and double fronted American fridge, while a beautiful period dining room sets the scene for entertaining. There are two games/playrooms for both little and big kids, one offering more traditional toys and games, and the other providing a large, flat-screen HD television and Xbox One.

Ground Floor

Entrance Hall:
Enter into a small covered porch area (you may notice some nesting birds above your head in the outdoor porch!) and then straight through to the…

Dining Room:
Located in the oldest part of the house, the beautiful dining room has a deeply historic and traditional feel to it thanks to the flagstone floor, rich wooden beams, and large original fireplace, now for decorative use only. Featuring a grand wooden dining table with seating for up to 12 guests, it’s the perfect space for everyone to get to together!

A lovely farmhouse kitchen with plenty of space and facilities. Featuring a breakfast table for up to 8 guests, cushioned window seat, and lots of worktop space, it’s a great place to cook and socialise. Featuring a double fridge/freezer, AGA, conventional hob and oven, dishwasher, washing machine, toaster, kettle, microwave and plenty of pots, pans, and utensils – there’s everything here that you will need! There is a WC and washbasin in a room connected to the far end of the kitchen.

A perfect little room for children to let loose in! Filled with toys, games, bean bags, a sofa, and a foosball table that can be converted into mini pool, ice hockey, and ping pong – this space will be a guaranteed hit with the younger members of the group! There are even patio doors with direct access to the patio/garden.

Sitting Room:
A light, creamy-hued room with white-washed beams and original oak features, the sitting room is a great place to relax, either in front of the wood-burning stove or on one of the sumptuous sofas. With a carpeted floor, a TV, and plenty of books + a beautiful marble solitaire set, this room has a deliciously warm and cosy feel.

A real feature of this bedroom is its elegant, white-washed, curved beams, that would have originally been part of a hull of a ship in Gloucester docks.

Supermarkets and Shopping:

The nearest major supermarkets are on the outskirts of Cheltenham. Sainsbury's is approximately 3 miles away while a large Waitrose and M&S Food Hall are in the centre of Cheltenham (6 miles). Coombe Hill Farm Shop (GL19 4BH, 1.7 miles) is open seasonally selling a wide range of essentials, and Coombe Hill Garage Shop (GL19 4BD, 1.5 miles) has a Morrisons Daily store selling basic groceries, beer and wine and seasonal items such as firewood.

Eating Out:
  • The Swan at Coombe Hill (1.5 miles)
  • Gloucester Old Spot (2 miles)

If you would like an easy walk, turn left out of Cyder Press House, turn right just after the barn and before the village pond and follow the track until you come to a gate. Go through the gate and into the field and follow the fence in front of you in a left-hand direction until you reach another gate at the other end. Through this gate you will pass over a small waterway and then a small dogleg bend until you reach the old canal. If you go right, you will eventually get to The Swan Pub at Coombe Hill and if you go left you will eventually arrive at The Red Lion. You can continue from the Red Lion to The New Dawn Inn at Norton and then from there walk along the main road back to the village. In all it is about 4.5 miles with an uphill climb between the two pubs.

  • Leckhampton Hill (9 miles)

We had a lovely time in this quirky period house. The rooms are beautifully decorated with lots of nice touches. The garden is a particularly nice feature and the kitchen is well equipped. I would recommend this place to any large groups, particularly anyone with children.

The cottage is lovely and full of character. The kitchen was the hub, we loved it and it had all you needed for a comfortable stay. It was very private, warm and cosy. The beds were comfy and the space was great. The cottage was exactly what was described. Beautiful beamed cottage with heaps of character and served our needs brilliantly. Highly recommend

Located off a very quiet lane in the sleepy hamlet of The Leigh, Cyder Press House is secluded enough to feel like a rural retreat while only a 10-15 minute drive from both the centres of Cheltenham and Gloucester, making it a great base from which to explore all that the Cotswolds has to offer!
