Instantly recognisable by the original water pump in the front garden, High Pump Cottage is a gorgeous 17th-century Cotswold abode for four, in the pretty village of Ebrington. Surrounded by the rolling hills of the ‘wolds’ this is a walker’s paradise with footpaths leading in all directions. Filled with character and charm and plenty of original features, High Pump Cottage also boasts dreamy interiors, a wood-burning stove and a secret garden room, where you can relax, listen to music, or perhaps put pen to paper for your first novel, with this lovely escape as your muse. The highly regarded village pub is but a meander away.
Full Description
Tucked away in the northern Cotswolds, where country lanes fringed with cow parsley and buttercups meander through impossibly pretty villages and sheep-filled fields, you’ll find Ebrington and High Pump Cottage. The garden path leads you past the original water pump to the front door and into a cottage that is both stylish and elegant yet still filled with character and charm. A wood-burning stove brings warmth on cooler days, whilst the beautiful, decked terrace is a place for lazy afternoons and outside dining.

The interior colour scheme of pale greys, creams and mocha ensures a feeling of light and space. Polished flagstones, exposed stone and beams are the star features of the elegant sitting room, along with a wood-burning stove. This in turn leads you through to the rear of the cottage where you’ll find a ground-floor shower room and a beautiful kitchen and dining area. It’s a gorgeous space and the epitome of a stylish English country cottage. Upstairs is equally delightful, with two bedrooms, a king-size and a double, and a second bathroom with a slipper bath.

Behind High Pump Cottage is a pretty cottage garden with a stunning deck and a stylish set of garden furniture, creating a very usable outside space. Relax with your morning coffee in the sunshine or enjoy alfresco dining as the sun sets. Hidden in the garden you’ll also find the garden room, a second living space for the cottage with comfortable seating, a desk and a wood-burning stove. If you can’t leave work behind this is an ideal spot. There is no allocated parking but on-street parking outside the cottage is freely available.

Ground Floor

Entrance Porch:
The tiled floor of the porch is the ideal place to leave muddy boots, and there are two rows of coat hooks for wet weather gear.

Sitting Room:
This picture-perfect room has flagstone floors, ceiling beams and a wood-burning stove in the original fireplace. A comfy three-seater sofa, matching armchair and an upholstered ottoman beneath the window offers plenty of seating and there’s a Smart TV with streaming services for entertainment. Bookshelves in the chimney alcoves provide a little light reading. It’s a room that just invites you to relax and unwind.

Bathroom:
The first of the two bathrooms is a ground-floor shower room with a step-in shower cubicle, a rainfall shower and hand-held shower head, WC and hand basin and a large wall mirror. There is plenty of shelving to store toiletries.

Kitchen:
With pale units, white walls, a window and double doors to the garden, the kitchen is a light and airy room. Everything practical you could need is neatly housed behind the doors including a dishwasher and a washer/dryer. There is a fabulous retro-style fridge freezer, toaster, and kettle and a wooden dining table with seating for four.

First Floor

Bedroom One:
Delicate shades of dark cream, palest grey and white make this a peaceful and restful room. A large, low window overlooks the pretty front garden, and the king-size bed is made up with crisp white linen and soft throws. Two double wardrobes allow plenty of storage, the Lloyd Loom chair is a place to relax and there's also a chest of drawers which can double as a dressing table and a wall-mounted TV.

Bathroom:
The first-floor bathroom has a charming slipper bath for leisurely soaks, there is a central mixer tap with a handheld shower, WC and hand basin. Natural light flows in from the roof light. There’s a mirrored cabinet where you can store toiletries.

Bedroom Two:
There is a shallow step into bedroom two. This peaceful double bedroom overlooks the rear garden to the trees beyond. The vaulted ceiling and traditional radiator add character and there’s a Velux window letting in even more light. Storage comes in the form of a half-height wardrobe with drawers.

Outside


To the front of High Pump Cottage is a charming garden with the original water pump taking pride of place. The rear garden is accessed via the kitchen. Closest to the house is a stylish decked area with an elegant outside dining set. It’s a really lovely space for relaxing and just listening to the sounds of birdsong. Beyond this is the garden room and then beyond this, the rest of the enclosed garden, which is laid to lawn and where you will find the barbecue. There is no allocated parking for the cottage but on-street parking is freely available at the front of the property.

Fabulous 5* immaculate, stunning holiday cottage, beautiful location, amazing attention to detail. Absolutely cannot wait to book again, just didn't want to leave. Beautiful welcome hamper, everything you could possibly want and the cleanest holiday cottage ever. Quality linens, furnishings and beautiful flowers from the garden arranged in vases around the house. Thank you so much!

From the time of arrival until our departure, we felt so relaxed at High Pump Cottage. The rooms are tastefully decorated and to a very high standard. The bathrooms and bedrooms are both very well equipped and so comfortable. The kitchen and dining area is so welcoming that we dined in during our stay and enjoyed the peace and tranquillity of the cottage. We would certainly recommend High Pump Cottage and will return on a regular basis.

Location

The village of Ebrington is one of those wonderful Cotswold places that has retained a real sense of community. There is always plenty going on. The Ebrington Arms is renowned throughout the Cotswolds and is just a short walk from the cottage. Chipping Campden is just 2 miles away and Dover’s Hill, a must for panoramic views, is also nearby. This area is surrounded by superb walking, and it is an excellent location for exploring the wider Cotswolds.
