New Church Cottage is a gorgeous townhouse with an air of Georgian elegance. The cottage is in the heart of Tetbury, one of the Cotswolds’ most famous market towns that's renowned for its royal connections and antique shops. The house has two stunning, double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a beautiful living room with a wood burning stove, a small but perfectly formed kitchen-dining area and a charming courtyard with a BBQ.
Full Description
Nestled in a terrace of classic honey-coloured, Georgian townhouses, just a stone’s throw from the town’s centre, New Church Cottage is distinguished by its quintessential duck-egg green front door and pretty bay trees framing its front sash window; an elegant touch, setting the theme for the property as soon as you step inside. Tetbury is arguably one of the most stylish market towns in the Cotswolds, thanks to its independent boutiques, fantastic antique shops and royal connections.

Walking straight into the cosy living space of the cottage, you’ll get a sense of its rich heritage, dating back to the 18th Century. An antique-surround wood burning stove is the centrepiece of the room, with tasteful historic artwork, Sanderson fabrics and antique furnishings giving the room a timeless, elegant feel. Through the living room sits a small but well-equipped kitchen, hand-painted and stocked with all that you’ll need during your stay, with a handy dining space to the rear.

Up the winding staircase, lined with striking Lewis & Wood wallpaper, you’ll find two individually designed double bedrooms. The first-floor bedroom has a beautiful, king-size double bed, painted antique furniture and views out to the street below. Up another winding staircase is the ensuite master bedroom, with show-stopping features radiating a feeling of historic luxury. In here, guests will find a vaulted ceiling with painted beams, a sparkling crystal chandelier, a sink-in king-size double bed and plenty of antiques. The cottage’s main bathroom is between the ground floor and first floor.

Outside, there’s a small courtyard with a table and four chairs where guests can enjoy alfresco dining and relax after a day exploring Tetbury and its surroundings.

Ground Floor

New Church Cottage is set in the middle of a classic Georgian terrace, just off Tetbury’s historic High Street. Step through a classic, duck-egg blue front door, into the cottage’s living room.

Living Room:
A true slice of Georgian elegance with just the right balance of mod-cons, New Church Cottage’s living room manages to expertly blend classic, elegant interiors with plenty of cosy touches to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Decorated in an attractive, classic palette of Cotswold creams, in here you’ll find sisal flooring, Georgian-era artwork, antique trinkets and a comfortable two-seater sofa and two armchairs. The centrepiece of the living room is the wood burning stove with its antique surround - the perfect spot to warm up in the cooler months after a busy day in the great Cotswold outdoors. Timeless, elegant and charming in equal measure, the living room offers a real home away from home feel for guests in search of a touch of luxury.

Kitchen/Dining Room:
Through the living room to the rear of the cottage sits the kitchen and dining area, a galley-style space with seating for up to four. In here, the refined feel of the rest of the property continues thanks to plenty of traditional touches, including hand-painted units, Iroko wood worktops and a deep Belfast-style sink. The thoughtful nods back to yester-year, unique seating and clever uses of cupboard space (hidden behind hand-made fabric doors) give the kitchen an authentic, homely yet very stylish feel. It is equipped with everything needed for a self-catering stay. The delightful dining area has a table and seating for four. Just off this area is a utility cupboard and a back door that opens to the cottage’s enclosed courtyard.

First Floor

Head up a winding staircase, lined with beautiful, floral Lewis & Wood wallpaper, to the family bathroom, then and up three further steps to the first bedroom.

Family Bathroom:
Half-way up the staircase to the first floor is the family bathroom, complete with a full-size bath and overhead shower. The gorgeous bathroom has a bespoke, marble vanity cabinet, wood panelling and polished limestone tiles and is flooded with light thanks to a long skylight.

Bedroom One:
Sitting on the cottage’s first floor, this double bedroom, with a king-size bed and bedside tables with reading lamps, is an homage to antique elegance that’s sure to make any guest feel as though they’ve stumbled into a luxurious yet understated boudoir. Farrow & Ball-hued walls in classic grey tones give the room a feeling of relaxation, contrasted with the pinks and greys of the curtains and blinds, which frame the original, sash window. The bedroom is furnished with a wardrobe, dressing table and a small dresser, plus there’s a wall-mounted, Freeview television tucked behind the bedroom’s doorway.

Second Floor

Head along the landing and through a glass-paned door to a winding staircase, with a handrail, up to the ensuite master bedroom.

Bedroom Two:
This hidden gem of a bedroom will certainly surprise you, with its impressive, vaulted ceilings and beautiful exposed beams. A luxury, king-size bed is the centrepiece, with an elegant chandelier above, giving the room a luxurious mood. The room is furnished with bedside tables and reading lamps, a chest of drawers, dressing table, full-length mirror and a luggage rack, plus all the refined touches of the rest of the home, with a pretty window overlooking the roof tops opposite.

Ensuite Shower Room:
The stylish, spa-like en-suite shower room features limestone flooring and tiling with a cubicle shower, a toilet, washbasin with a mirror over it and a heated towel rail.


A real bonus of this townhouse is its compact courtyard, located through the kitchen to the rear of the property. The courtyard is south-west facing and so receives a good amount of sunlight. It is completely private thanks to the pretty Cotswold stone walls that frame it. Guests will find a bistro dining set for four and a charcoal BBQ, making the space ideal for relaxed al fresco dining. Entirely enclosed, little ones and dogs are perfectly safe.

We loved everything about this cottage. We often visit Tetbury and usually stay in one of the local hotels but this time we travelled with friends and therefore chose a cottage. The cottage is absolutely gorgeous with wonderful decor throughout. The beds were so comfy with luxury bedding. We arrived on the Friday and we actually arranged for a private chef to come and cook for us at the cottage which was a wonderful experience. The cottage is prime location close to all pubs, shops and antique dealers, with a great little market on a Saturday in the square. We will 100% rebook this cottage in the future, we had such a fabulous time.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at New Church Cottage. The cottage was spotlessly clean and well-equipped. We really appreciated the lovely touches of flowers, milk and an apple pie. It was warm and cosy and the beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the location in the centre of Tetbury.

We travelled from Chicago. The main reason I chose New Church Cottage for our visit to the Cotswolds was that it was within walking distance of restaurants and pubs. The cottage was very convenient for exploring the charming village of Tetbury.We were able to get rides back and forth from Kemble train station for excursions to Bath and to and from Paddington. The cottage was very clean, the furniture was comfortable, beds and bedding were all great. Many thanks for a memorable stay.
