A beautifully appointed, two-bedroom, two-bathroom, dog-friendly*, Georgian townhouse, with an air of French elegance, tucked in the heart of one of the Cotswolds’ most famous market towns, renowned for its royal connections and antique shops. New Church Cottage has a private, enclosed patio and secure, off-street parking for one car.
You’d be forgiven for missing New Church Cottage as you wander the bustling streets of Tetbury; arguably the most stylish market town in the Cotswolds, thanks to its boutique shops, designer delis and distinctly royal connections. Nestled in a terrace of classic honey-coloured Georgian townhouses just a stone’s throw from the town’s centre, New Church Cottage is distinguished by its quintessential duck-egg blue front door and pretty bay trees framing its front sash window; an elegant touch, setting the theme for the property as soon as you step inside.
Walking straight into the cosy living space of the cottage, you’ll get a sense of its rich heritage, dating back to the 18thCentury. An antique-surround open fire acts as the centrepiece of the room, with tasteful historic artwork, Sanderson fabrics and antique furnishings giving the room a timeless, elegant feel. Through the living room sits a small but well-formed kitchen, hand-painted and stocked with all that you’ll need during your stay, with a handy dining space tucked at the rear for comfortable dining.
Up the winding staircase, lined with eye-catching Lewis & Wood wallpaper, you’ll find two bedrooms for up to four guests, each individually-designed with a twist of antique French sophistication. Bedroom two boasts a beautiful antique French double bed, complete with billowing fabric draping, plus pretty, painted antique furniture and views out onto the street beneath. Up another winding staircase (cleverly concealed behind a frosted glass door) sits the master bedroom, with show-stopping features emanating a real feeling of historic luxury. In here, guests will find a vaulted ceiling with chunky painted beams, a sparkling crystal chandelier, a sink-in French “Empire” style king-size bed and plenty of antique touches. There’s even a small but incredibly handy en-suite shower room; a great addition to the cottage’s main bathroom located just off the staircase on the first floor.
With the sights and sounds of Tetbury quite literally on your doorstep at New Church Cottage, you’ll have plenty on hand to keep you entertained with a host of fantastic cafés, restaurants, shops and pubs to discover. After a busy day exploring, the cottage’s perfectly petite courtyard garden offers a welcome respite from the hubbub of the town, where guests can unwind with a sundowner or fire up the BBQ for charcoal-cooked feast.
