Lady Jane Grey Cottage is a charming and carefully restored, 3-bedroom cottage that sleeps 5 guests in 1 double room, 1 twin room and 1 single room, with 1 family bathroom. The cottage is a semi-detached (alongside Princess Elizabeth Cottage), two storey property with a fully-equipped modern kitchen and a spacious living and dining area that leads out to a private courtyard with seating. Upstairs are three comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms and a modern bathroom with a fixed shower over a bathtub.
Guests staying at Lady Jane Grey Cottage enjoy complimentary (other than separately ticketed events) day-time entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens during the open season.
Lady Jane Grey Cottage is one of Sudeley Castle’s largest Country Cottages, and is named after Lady Jane Grey, who lived at Sudeley Castle before her brief nine-day reign as Queen of England. This lovely cottage was originally part of a paper mill, which was restored to make two cottages (Lady Jane Grey and Princess Elizabeth) and two apartments (St Kenelm and Oliver Cromwell), preserving the original exposed walls and beams throughout. (St Kenelm sits directly above Princess Elizabeth and Oliver Cromwell sits directly above Lady Jane Grey.)
The accommodation is arranged over two floors. Guests enter from a covered porch into a small hallway, with handy coat hooks, and pass through to an open-plan area with a desk and chair, under stairs storage (baby and cleaning equipment) and a very well-equipped kitchen. The kitchen windows look out on to the private courtyard.
Off the kitchen, and down three stairs, is the dining area with a large oak table, comfortably seating 5 guests. At the end of this large open plan space is the living area, which leads out to the private courtyard.
Upstairs (via a carpeted staircase with handrail) there is one double bedroom, one spacious twin bedroom, a single bedroom and a family bathroom with full-size bath and over-bath shower.
The kitchen at Lady Jane Grey is very well equipped, with plenty of storage space in the distinctive, off-white cabinets with wooden work surfaces. The kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, crockery and glassware you need for a self-catering holiday, including a Neff cooker, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, washing machine/dryer 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.
Step down from the kitchen area to the dining/living area which is dominated by the paper mill’s original stone wall. The dining area has a large circular oak table, seating five, while the other end features two large, sink-in sofas, a flat-screen TV and DVD player and oak coffee table. Double doors lead out to the courtyard with a table and seating, the perfect place to relax in the evening sun after a day exploring the Cotswolds.
The largest bedroom in the Lady Jane Grey is a spacious twin room, with the beds arranged to provide some privacy between guests. This rear-aspect bedroom features original oak beams and the mill’s exposed stone wall. Guests share a hanging cupboard, while each bed has its own bedside table and dimmable reading lamp.
This pretty bedroom features a standard double bed with oak bedstead and headboard. Facing the front of the property, with a large double window, this bedroom is light and bright with plenty of storage space in a hanging cupboard and bedside cabinets. An original mill shelf with a mirror acts as a handy ‘dressing table’, while dimmable bedside lamps provide perfect reading light.
This cosy, single bedroom has a large window with views to the rear of the property and out towards woodland. The room is furnished with a hanging cupboard and bedside table and lamp.
The pretty bathroom with Shaker-style panelling and exposed stone wall has a full-size bath with over-bath shower, a large sink with a mirror and shaver point, a dual flush toilet and heated towel rail. Handy hooks on the door are provided for your clothes or robe. Complimentary toiletries are provided including hand soap, shower gel, hand wash, vanity kit, shower cap and toilet paper.
Guests have access to Lady Jane Grey’s private, gravelled courtyard with a table and seating for five.

Again a lovely stay at Sudeley cottages - on my 4th cottage and the standard is again top notch and very good value for money !
Lovely cottage in a fantastic location. The property was very clean and well equipped. Would thoroughly recommend. We enjoyed the town of Winchcombe and visiting Sudeley Castle. Great nearby walk and several other Cotswold towns and villages only a short drive away.
We had a last minute booking and have had a wonderful week of walking and loved the opportunity to spend time visiting Sudeley Castle and it's beautiful gardens. Lady Jane Grey is a perfect cottage with lots of space, very well equipped and excellent heating for the cooler evenings!
Lovely homely place in a beautiful location.
We really enjoyed our stay in the cottage which is in an excellent location 500 yards or so from the Main Street of Winchcombe. Would definitely visit Winchcombe again with its excellent range of amenities &amp; so many walks to do.
Lovely period apartment in a great location. The cottages are renovated beautifully, they look amazing and are really well placed with free entry to the castle. Loads of parking and an easy walk to winchcombe. My only small complaint is that the taps, showers, toilets and sinks are a little bit low quality for the price of the apartment. But this really is splitting hairs. You won’t be disappointed if you book this cottage.
We had a great holiday with our toddler and baby. The cottage was very spacious for 4 of us. The location was fantastic being only a short walk into Winchcombe centre and the castle being a pleasant walk across a field of sheep. Beautiful setting and would love to come back to visit
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.
