Queen Mary Cottage is a charming, 2-bedroom cottage that sleeps 4 guests in 1 double room and 1 twin room, with 1 family bathroom. The cottage is a semi-detached (alongside Anne Boleyn Cottage), two-storey property with a well-equipped open plan kitchen/dining area and spacious living room that leads out through French doors to a seating area with countryside views.
Guests staying at Queen Mary Cottage enjoy complimentary (other than separately ticketed events) day-time entrance to Sudeley Castle & Gardens during the open season.
Please be aware that under no circumstances are additional guests above the maximum capacity allowed at the property, for day visits or overnight stays. If you are found to be in breach of this, you will be asked to leave the property and reported.
This pretty, 3-bedroom, semi-detached cottage is named after Queen Mary (the wife of King George V), who visited the Dent-Brocklehurst family at Sudeley Castle in 1944. The cottage sleeps four people and can additionally accommodate a cot.
The accommodation is arranged over two floors. Guests enter from a covered porch into the open-plan kitchen/dining room area with a large under stairs storage (housing baby and cleaning equipment). A back door opens from the kitchen out to a small seating area.
Off the dining area, and down two stairs, is the living room with two large double sofas, a coffee table, occasional tables, and a flat-screen TV with DVD player, and French doors out to the seating area.
Upstairs there is one double bedroom with a large dressing area, one twin bedroom, and a newly refurbished family bathroom with a large walk-in shower.
Guests enter Queen Mary Cottage through the covered front door into the open plan kitchen/dining room. Beside the dining area is a handy under stairs cupboard housing baby, cleaning and ironing equipment.
The kitchen has all the appliances, cookware, crockery, and glassware you need for a self-catering holiday, including a Neff Oven & Hob, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer, microwave, toaster, kettle, and Nespresso coffee machine. (See ‘Facilities’ above for further details.) A welcome pack of teabags, Nespresso coffee pods, hot chocolate, milk, biscuits, jam/honey mini pots, boiled sweets are provided for your first day at the Cottage.
A back door opens from the kitchen out to a small seating area. The kitchen overlooks the rear of the property towards the River Isbourne.
2 large double sofas, a coffee table, occasional tables, and a flat-screen TV with DVD player, and French doors out to the seating area.
The main bedroom is entered via a large dressing room with a window over the main courtyard and furnished with a built-in cupboard, antique dressing table, and mirror. Step down two steps to the bedroom, featuring a double divan bed with bedside tables and touch-dim bedside lamps, and a pretty window overlooking the cottage courtyard.
The newly refurbished bathroom with Shaker-style panelling has a large walk-in shower, a large sink with a mirror, a dual flush toilet, and a heated towel rail. Complimentary toiletries are provided including hand soap, shower gel, hand wash, vanity kit, shower cap and toilet paper.
This twin room with rear views towards the River Isbourne has two single beds, a hanging cupboard, and a shared bedside table with touch-dim bedside lamps.

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.
Wesley House (200 metres)
White Hart Inn (200 metres)
North Street (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.
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.

Queen Mary cottage was just perfect, Having stayed at a lot of cottages in the past this was by far a 10/10. Perfect location. Great pub within walking distance and the High Street. The cottage was fantastically equipped. Little touches like hand santiser, dog bowl & towel, fan, extra towels, milk in the fridge, tea/coffee etc....All very very clean too. Would absolutely recommend Sudeley Cottages and would be happy to return. Thank you!

We had a great girls’ trip to Sudeley Castle, where we enjoyed a very homey stay in the Queen Mary Cottage. Super close to Winchcombe and Sudelely, as well as a great location for walking and visiting the surrounding Cotswold villages. The cottage itself was clean and very well equipped; beds were comfortable and we felt right at home.

Lovely quaint cottage in excellent location, can walk up the street to the pubs and shops etc. Also a great location for exploring the nearby towns. The cottage had off road parking and the amenities inside were excellent. Would happy return again.
Oriane - August 2021
Lovely clean and well equipped cottage in great location close to Cheltenham and Broadway, will definitely be coming back!
Anna - August 2021
Exceptionally clean and modern, great facilities - had everything. Great walk-in-shower. Short walk into Winchcombe (200 yards to pub). Country walks from the door. Nice little enclosed table and chairs at the back by the parking spaces, just enough for an evening drink.
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.
