Full Description

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. It is named after one of Sudeley’s most notorious figures, Oliver Cromwell, who ordered much of the destruction of Sudeley Castle towards the end of the English Civil War.

The accommodation is arranged over two floors. The first floor comprises of an open-plan lounge, dining area, and fully equipped kitchen, complete with a dishwasher and washer/dryer. For your entertainment, there is a flat-screen TV and DVD player. The apartment boasts views over the nearby river and cottage courtyard.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The double bedroom has a bathroom adjacent, with a large walk-in shower, washbasin and WC. The twin bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom, with a washbasin, WC, and bathtub with fixed overhead shower. Fluffy towels and bedding are provided for all guests.

Supermarkets and Shopping:

The town itself benefits from several small supermarkets, including The Co-Operative Food, which is 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.

Eating Out:
  • White Hart Inn (200 metres)
  • North Street (300 metres)
  • The Corner Cupboard (300 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.

Sudeley Castle:

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.

Lovely historic building beautifully converted. felt private and was quiet but within a short walk of Winchcombe centre with lovely pubs. Lion Inn and Indian restaurant well recommended! Cottage was clean and well equipped and a lovely space. the free entry to the castle was a bonus.

Oliver Cromwell was perfect for my friend and I. An easy walk to the shops and wonderful restaurants in Winchcombe and a walking path to the castle. It was very well furnished with everything needed for your stay. The lovely welcome pack was really appreciated as were the bath products. I wish I could have stayed longer.

Winchcombe is an elegant and timeless Cotswold town. Venture down the narrow side streets to find a mix of Cotswold stone cottages and black and white half-timbered buildings. The town is a famous centre for walkers, yet also boasts a number of traditional pubs and delicious cafes, galleries, boutique clothing, interior design, and antique shops to browse. With Winchcombe on your doorstep and the Cotswolds’ many market towns and villages just a short car ride away, you’re somewhat spoiled for choice when it comes to places to eat.
