Prince Rupert is a dog-friendly apartment cottage, which sleeps 3 guests across one double and one single bedroom. The accommodation is arranged over two floors, with a living area, dining area and fully equipped kitchen downstairs and the two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Prince Rupert is in the converted Old Forge, and has an outdoor terrace with table and chairs to dine al fresco and read a book on sunny mornings.

Guests staying at Prince Rupert enjoy complimentary (other than separately ticketed events) day-time entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens during the open season.

Full Description

This apartment cottage is named after Prince Rupert of the Rhine, a nephew of King Charles I, who commanded the Royalist cavalry during the English Civil War and made Sudeley his headquarters. Tucked away at the back of the Sudeley Castle cottages complex, Prince Rupert is a charming choice for exploring this historic area. The ground floor has a bright and light open plan living area, dining area and fully equipped kitchen overlooking the main courtyard. A pretty, divided staircase leads up to the double bedroom and family bathroom to the left and the single bedroom (with under-eaves space for a ‘folding’ bed) to the right.

Ground Floor

The living/Dining/Kitchen area is open-plan.

Stepping into the dining area from the decking and outside seating area, you’ll immediately be struck by the light and airy feel of this apartment cottage.


Dining Area:
The dining area is furnished with a round, oak dining table and chairs to comfortably accommodate 4 guests.

Kitchen:
The fully equipped kitchen, overlooking the main courtyard, has a country-cottage feel, with fresh off-white coloured and wooden work surfaces. The kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, crockery and glassware you need for a self-catering holiday, including a, oven/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle, Nespresso coffee machine and a washer-dryer.

Sitting Room:
A comfortable sofa, sink-in armchair with a footstool provide plenty of seating for 4 in the carpeted living area. In addition, the living area is furnished with an oak coffee table, occasional tables and a smart TV. An understair cupboard in the living room houses a travel cot, stair gate, highchair, iron, ironing board, and airer, as well as the dog basket (with stainless steel bowl and blanket).

First Floor

There is a divided staircase to reach the first floor.


Bedroom One:
The master bedroom is furnished with an oak frame standard double bed, small chest of drawers, bedside tables and individual overbed lights with reading and room lighting. This dual aspect bedroom, with windows to the front and back, has a small hanging cupboard and hooks to store guests’ clothing.

Bedroom Two:
Furnished with an oak frame single bed, bedside table and individual overbed light with reading and room lighting, this is a cosy bedroom with views to the rear over the garden and decking area. Hooks in the main bedroom area are provided for hanging clothes, while an under-the-eaves extension off the main sleeping area houses a chest of drawers and hanging hooks.

Family Bathroom:
Adjacent to Bedroom 2 is the family bathroom, with a large walk-in shower (with a fixed over-head rain shower and detachable handheld showerhead) toilet, sink with shaver unit and heated towel rail.

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)
  • North Street (300 metres)
  • The Corner Cupboard (300 metres)
Walks:

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.

    We had a fantastic stay here, we loved Sudeley Castle and it's grounds. It's such a beautiful place and in a fantastic little town with everything you need. We also enjoyed trips to nearby Broadway and Cheltenham we thoroughly recommend visits to both places. We will be back!

    The cottage is extremely comfortable, beautifully furnished and very fully equipped. Such a great place to stay in the centre of Winchcombe with free access to the wonderful Sudeley Castle.Lovely pubs, cafes, delis etc. in short walking distance. We recommend 'The Corner Cupboard' and 'William's'.Sudeley Castle is amazing. It's really worth timing your visit to hear the talk, as it gives you so much background with which to explore the castle. Take a picnic!

    The cottage was absolutely lovely, cute but also very comfy. Further everything you needed was provided. We felt very lucky to stay in this cosy perfect cottage and would always come back to it.Being able to visit Sudeley Castle during our stay without paying was a nice surprise.The pubs in Winchcombe are very open to visitors so that we had several chatty evenings. We recommend the White Heart Inn for its food, its ales and of course for its top atmosphere.

    Lovely cottage and surroundings, Nicely done up with comfy furniture, books, painting and great kitchen facilities. Free entrance included to Sudeley Castle which is well worth visiting. Winchcombe is a lovely place and there is a lot to do and see nearby.

    Location

    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.
