Sudely Castle cottages are a lovely place to stay: picturesque, comfortable, in an excellent location for the village and for the many walks from Winchcombe. And the staff are rally helpful and friendly.
Excellent location for walking and close to the town with the added value of Sudbury Castle Included in the price . Will stay here again.
Loved everything about the cottage. Had a few days just before lockdown. Spacious, warm very clean, well equipped. Really loved it, great shower, comfy beds. Appreciated the tea and coffee and cleaning materials. Great small dishwasher. No complaints!
beautiful cottage in a beautiful location. very handy for the castle and shops and restaurants. the cottage was very well equipped, perfect size, lovely patio, a real sun trap. free visit to the castle was very lovely touch. Would definitely come back and recommend the property in a heart beat. In fact I wish we were back there right now
Cottage was perfect for a family (2 kids aged 10 and 12). Open plan worked really well as did the WiFi. The welcome pack was one of the best we’ve had with self catering, and cottage was very clean and had everything you could possibly need for a short break. The village was a short stroll with local butchers / bakery etc. Would definitely visit again.
"The cottage was beautifully furnished to a very high standard throughout. The cleanliness was superb. The cottage is located within easy walking distance of local shops, pubs and an excellent Thai restaurant. Ii have booked my next stay already.
Excellent cottage very well done has everything you need for your stay. 5 star place had a Xmas tree when we arrived very nice touch would of liked to stay longer.
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.
