Princess Elizabeth Cottage is a charming and carefully restored, 2-bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 1 king size double room and 1 twin room, with 1 family bathroom. The cottage is a semi-detached (alongside Lady Jane Grey), 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 two comfortable and well-appointed bedrooms and a modern bathroom with a fixed shower over a bathtub.

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

Full Description

Named after Princess Elizabeth, who visited the castle on several occasions and who would later in her life become the infamous Queen Elizabeth I 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 and very well-equipped kitchen with under-stairs storage (baby and cleaning equipment). The kitchen windows look out onto the private courtyard. Off the kitchen, and down three stairs, is the dining area with a large oak table, comfortably seating 4 guests. At the end of this large open-plan space is the living area, which leads out to the private courtyard. Upstairs there is one double bedroom a king-size bed and one spacious twin bedroom, as well as a family bathroom with a full-size bath and over-bath shower.

Ground Floor

Kitchen:
The kitchen at Princess Elizabeth 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.

Living/Dining Area:
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 4, while the other end features a large, sink-in sofa + 2 armchairs, a smart TV, 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.


First Floor:

Bedroom One:
This pretty bedroom features a king-size double bed with an oak bedstead and headboard. Facing the river at the rear of the property, with a large sash window, this bedroom is light and bright with plenty of storage space in an ornately carved hanging cupboard and bedside cabinets with reading lamps, and a lovely dressing table with a large fixed mirror.

Bedroom Two:
A spacious twin room, with the beds arranged to provide some privacy between guests. This front-facing bedroom features original oak beams, a decorative original fireplace, and the mill’s exposed stone walls. Guests share a dressing table with a fixed mirror, while each bed has its own bedside table and dimmable reading lamp.

Family Bathroom:
The pretty bathroom with Shaker-style panelling and the exposed stone wall has a full-size bath with an over-bath shower, a large sink with a mirror and shaver point, a dual flush toilet, and a heated towel rail. Handy hooks on the door are provided for your clothes or robe. Complimentary toiletries are provided including hand soap, shower gel, handwash, vanity kit, shower cap, and toilet paper.

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.

  • North Street (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.

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.

Reviews

We stayed because we were going to a wedding at Sudeley Castle. Location was perfect, a few minutes drive away. The cottage had everything we needed and was a peaceful retreat at the end of the day.

A charming cottage in the grounds of Sudeley Castle less than a 5-minute walk from Winchcombe. For walkers, it is a perfect location as a base. Close to many interesting towns and great for sightseeing.

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.
