Tetbury, Cotswolds, England
A Grade I listed Stuart garden house of 1620 in a private wooded valley in the heart of the Cotswolds. Sleeps 2 to 5 on three floors. Loggia on the ground floor has views over the listed gardens of the Tudor manor house.

The Court House with its romantic period charm is a favourite with history and architecture buffs. The front door opens directly into a garden loggia restored as an attractive dining room. The glass doors, divided by a simple Tuscan column, here frame the view of the east wing of the manor house and its yew trees immortalized by the etching of the famous Cotswold artist F.L. Griggs.

While the cottage is charming and the location is stunning, I would not recommend it for a winter stay as it is very cold and draughty despite the heating being on. We got off to a bad start because the keys were not in the arranged collection place and we had to locate the owner and wait in the car...

The cottage is on the Owlpen Manor estate which owns much of a very beautiful valley. Some of the most enchanting English countryside I have encountered. Long walks can begin from the front door and guests can wander around the estate. The local countryside is really quite exceptional. The house is not huge but is a unique old building and...
