Oliver Cromwell is a lovely bright apartment that was completely refurbished in February 2017, including a new kitchen, two new bathrooms, and soft furnishings throughout. The apartment was restored from a paper mill to make spectacular accommodation with exposed stone walls and original beams.

On your Doorstep
Supermarkets and Shopping:
The town itself benefits from several small supermarkets, including The Co-Operative Food and Warner’s Budgens, both well-stocked with fresh produce and store cupboard essentials. Vale & Hills Family Butchers offers fantastic, local meat on the town’s high street, with a host of delicious goodies available at North’s Bakery for those in search of a fresh morning loaf.

White Hart Inn (200 metres)

The Winchcombe Way, a 42-mile figure-of-eight trail centred around the town, offers walkers a great way of discovering the surrounding Cotswold towns and villages section-by-section over the course of a stay, whilst there are plenty of options for those looking for a more casual, leisurely pace within a close radius of the cottage. We recommend the Sudeley Castle Circular walk for a relaxing stroll; a 2-mile loop setting off straight from the cottage’s front door, taking you into the grounds of historic Sudeley Castle - a must-visit for any guest. The 2.5 mile walk to Belas Knap, a Neolithic chambered long barrow sat atop Cleeve Hill, is also a great walk to try from the doorstep, providing you don’t mind the incline.
During your stay at Sudeley Castle Country Cottages you are entitled to free admission to Sudeley Castle and Gardens during the Castle’s open season (except for separately ticketed events). If you wish to visit the Castle and gardens during your stay, please take your room key or booking receipt with you to the admissions desk. Steeped in a thousand years of history, Sudeley Castle makes for a fascinating day out, not to mention the vast number of events also taking place throughout the year.

We were very pleased with the apartment and enjoyed our stay very much. We certainly would return especially because of its position, close proximity to the town and to the castle. We also enjoyed visiting the castle.

Great place to stay to explore the Cotswolds. Sudeley castle is great to visit and the pubs in the local area are really good.
Brilliant property, everything you needed and location was spot on for walks and visiting the local town
The apartment is spacious and has a lot of natural light. It is well presented and very clean. The kitchen has everything you need to cook and serve family meals. Location is excellent for both local walks and short trips to Cotswolds highlights. Booking was very simple and communication with the local staff was excellent. We're looking forward to our next stay there!
Not the first time we have stayed in the properties and won't be the last. Clean, great location what a bonus to have brilliant weather for the time of year. Loved it, thank you.
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 the Winchcombe guidebook for more information.
