Tiesel is a traditional Cotswold cottage in Brockhampton, a peaceful village that appears undisturbed by the passage of time. Together with its sister property next door, the cottage is the first in a small terrace of equally charming cottages and offers a wonderful base from which to discover the surrounding Cotswolds. Sleeping four guests in two bedrooms, a spacious living room with a cosy wood burner and a welcoming village pub moments away, Tiesel Cottage is perfect for exploring Cheltenham Spa, Winchcombe and further afield.
Full Description
The country lanes leading to Brockhampton are winding and narrow, conveying a real sense of rural England and this tranquil village is much the same, offering a handful of traditional Cotswold stone houses and a friendly pub, serving good food, just across the road from Tiesel Cottage.

This pale stone cottage dates from 1810 and offers a homely and welcoming place to stay. Many of the cottage’s original features remain, including fabulous deep-set stone mullion windows and a huge fireplace in the living room. The stylish kitchen is both traditional and modern and has everything you need for a self-catering stay, whilst upstairs there are two comfortable bedrooms and a huge bathroom with a fabulous clawfoot foot bath, perfect for a lazy soak after a day of exploring.

To the front of Tiesel is a cottage garden with a cute bistro table, four chairs and a charcoal barbecue. It’s a lovely spot to sit with your morning coffee or an icy gin and tonic and just watch the world pass by. There’s a parking space for one car tucked away by the backdoor.

Ground Floor

Dining Room:
Guests enter Tiesel Cottage through the back door, which leads into the dining room, a light-filled extension at the rear of the cottage. The stone flooring runs throughout the cottage, perfectly in keeping with the style of the property. The dining room features a large, circular dining table, handy storage cupboard and a little nook suitable for use as a workstation if needed. The fridge-freezer can also be found in the dining room.

Entrance Hall:
The hallway runs from the dining room to the front door, the kitchen is on the left, as is the living room, whilst the stairs to the first floor are on the right, there is also a ground floor cloakroom by the front door.

This modern, stylish kitchen is fitted with mid-grey cupboards and contrasting wooden work surfaces. It has everything practical for a self-catering holiday with an electric oven and hob, dishwasher, and a microwave. Listen to some holiday tunes on the Roberts radio and maybe try creating a new dish from the selection of cookery books on the windowsill. A large window looks out to the side of the cottage.

Living Room:
Light and airy, the living room is charmingly traditional, the huge fireplace takes centre stage complete with a cosy wood-burning stove. A comfy three-seater sofa and two armchairs flank a large wooden coffee table, perfectly placed for playing one of the numerous games provided or resting tired feet after days tramping the Cotswold hills. The large, original stone mullion window looks out to the front garden and is framed with stylish, heavy curtains.

By the front door, you’ll find a ground floor cloakroom with a W.C, hand basin and coat hooks.

First Floor

The stairs to the first floor are original and therefore winding and steep, you might also notice the odd creek or two!

Bedroom One:
This spacious room boasts a king-size bed with nightstands and reading lights on either side. The cast iron fireplace (not in use) is a lovely, original feature as is the deep-set, stone mullion window overlooking the front of the cottage, offering views across the valley and surrounding hills. There are hooks with coat hangers in one corner (there’s a hairdryer hanging in a bag here too) and an antique, five-drawer chest of drawers for further storage, topped with a triple stand dressing table mirror.

Bedroom Two:
With a brass-framed double bed, this is a cosy bedroom overlooking the front garden. There are nightstands on either side of the bed and one reading lamp, wall hooks with coat hangers and there’s also a vintage-style freestanding wooden towel rail.

Bathroom / Shower Room:
Enjoy indulgently, bubble-filled soaks in the freestanding, claw-foot bathtub. Overhead is a rainfall showerhead. This spacious bathroom has a wood floor, twin hand basins with mirrors and a WC. The large window to the side lets in plenty of natural light, and there are several shelves and a heated towel rail keeps things toasty.


Tiesel Cottage has a pretty front garden, shared with Truffles Cottage next door but separated with a newly planted parterre. There’s a bistro-style table and four chairs, along with a charcoal barbecue, so you can relax and enjoy the sunshine listening to the birds singing in the trees. There is parking for two cars by the backdoor to the cottage.

Tiesel Cottage is surrounded by superb walking, right from the front door. One of our favourite circular walks is to turn right from the gate and walk down the lane. At the bottom, it becomes a steep track which you follow down the hill, through a gate and over a stream. Cross over and walk diagonally left bringing you to the village of Sevenhampton via the churchyard of St. Andrew’s Church, a beautiful 13th-century church. From the church, cross the lane, hop over the stile, and walk left completing the circle back to Brockhampton. Alternatively, for another pretty walk. turn left from the cottage and then right up the hill. At the grass triangle turn right towards Sevenhampton, Halfway along the lane turn right through a gate and follow the sheep track down the hill into the valley, cross the stream over the old stone bridge and follow the path back up into the village.

Both properties are dog friendly and accept a maximum of two dogs each, with a fee per pet payable on booking.


Ideal Cottage for walking in the Cotswolds. We found the kitchen very well equipped and a welcoming starter pack with yummy things. The fire was laid and a good amount of logs were left in the basket. Parking is easy with a gravel area for 2 cars. The cottage is spacious enough not to feel cramped. The pub opposite did excellent lunch. The pub like many these days is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, otherwise, we would have visited it daily. We visited Chedworth Roman Villa and Winchcombe but the cottage is also within easy reach of other Cotswolds towns such as Stow, Moreton and Cirencester in under 30 minutes. Nicely furnished and decorated but as you’d expect with stone walls and original single glazed mullion windows a bit chilly out of high season so the wood burner was a necessity.

Brockhampton offers the best of both worlds, it’s tucked deep into the countryside yet within easy reach of Cheltenham Spa and Winchcombe, both within a 20-minute drive. The village is surrounded by a network of footpaths offering some wonderful walks, and the nearby wood is a haven for barn owls, grey owls and short-eared owls, it is definitely worth the stroll up the hill at dusk to spot them.
