Property Description

"Fine cottages and facilities – just a mile from one of England’s finest Regency towns . . ."

Occupying a superb position with wonderful rural views, yet within a mile or so of Cheltenham’s elegant town centre, these delightful holiday cottages have been created from a range of 19th-century barns and are furnished and equipped to high standards. All cottages enjoy a good choice of shared facilities including a covered heated swimming pool, an all-weather tennis court and a croquet lawn. The cottages are well equipped, with an automatic washing machine, microwave oven and dishwasher, and each cottage has its own sitting out area with patio and furniture.
All the fascinating corners of the beautiful Regency spa town of Cheltenham are immediately to hand: there is an art gallery, a museum, tempting boutiques, antique shops, plentiful restaurants and inns. Only a short walk away is Cheltenham’s racecourse, famous as the home of National Hunt Racing, which stages the Cheltenham Festival in March, as well as several other top quality race meetings between October and the end of April. The Pittville Pump Room, a magnificent Grade I listed building opened in 1830, has a museum on its top floor. In the ballroom it is possible to taste spa water from the original pump. Historic illustrations, photographs and small displays tell the story of Cheltenham from its beginnings in Anglo-Saxon times. The building is surrounded by attractive parkland with a lake and children’s playground, public tennis courts and golf course. Number 4 Clarence Road, built in 1832 by James Creed, is the house in which Gustav Holst was born on 21 September 1874, and where he spent the first seven years of his childhood. The Holst Birthplace Museum is a memorial to the composer and a rare treat for lovers of music. On the summit of nearby Leckhampton Hill above the Devil’s Chimney, a teetering rock column, is the site of an Iron Age fort; keen walkers can follow the Cotswold Way.
Hunting Butts Cottages provide a perfect base to explore the beautiful countryside and villages of the Cotswolds as well as the attractions of the Heart of England. The Cotswolds cast their spell on artists, naturalists, walkers and everyone with a love for rural peace and tranquillity: Broadway – the ‘Venice’ of the Cotswolds; delightful Chipping Campden; Blockley, described as the most beautiful village in England, and Stow-on-the-Wold boasting England’s oldest pub, are all within half an hour’s drive. The variety of attractions is almost endless. Exploring this region at any time of year is a rewarding experience, each season throwing a different light on the changing scene. Heritage attractions in the area include Sudeley Castle (7 miles), once home of Catherine Parr, containing Europe’s largest collection of toys, arms and armour. Forest of Dean 23 miles. Birmingham, Bath, Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon are all within one hour by car. Sailing and wind-surfing on 15,000 acres of lakes near the ancient Roman town of Cirencester are available within 30 minutes’ drive. Shops ½ mile.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Our little house for two was really excellent! The location was ideal for Cheltenham and the Cotswolds generally. We really felt at home and enjoyed the peace and quiet. The owners were very welcoming and all in all, our stay was one of the best in our years of self-catering holidays, we hope to return in 2013. Oct 2012.
  2. Great little cottage with cosy, country furnishings and a welcome pack left including fresh flowers, butter, bread and milk, fruit. Clean and tidy, pool available on site. A little too small though for us two plus our 11 month old as hardly any room for a travel cot in the bedroom and not much space for him to roam around indoors. Great location for exploring the Cotswolds. Sept 2012.
  3. This is a lovely cottage - comfortable, well appointed, enjoying fantastic facilities (pool especially but also games room, tennis courts and grounds). A very warm welcome is to be had (nice finishing touches of fruit etc from the owners). I can only find fault with the weather which no one can really account for! July 2012.
  4. A lovely little cottage which has everything you need. A minor criticism would be the positioning of the bedroom door which swings back to hit the wardrobe door when you are trying to get clothes out. July 2012.
  5. Excellent accommodation, with great welcoming touches. Covered pool is also an extra facility. Location is ideal for the Cotswold and the Wye Valley. M & S food hall Cook Shop and Sainsburys nearby for any home cooking. Highly recommended. June 2012.
  6. Excellent location; delightful, comfortable and well-equipped accommodation. Lovely welcome and worthy of a repeat visit, provided the facilities are as advertised. May 2012.
  7. Beautiful cottage, great location. Nov 2011.
  8. Set in a pleasant location. A nice starter pack with the basics provided, plus some fruit and flowers - a good start to the holiday. A cosy cottage with everything you need. The pool an added bonus to enjoy. Aug 2011.
  9. A beautifull little cottage with lots of lovely added touches like fresh flowers a bowl of fruit fresh bread milk and butter. Everything was spotlessly clean and in a lovely peacefull location but only minutes from Cheltenham town centre - 5 stars. May 2011.
  10. The cottage was wonderful on all levels listed here. The additional touches of milk, biscuits, coffee and tea provided, and the extras like the games room, swimming pool were brilliant. Perfect size for two people, and would love to return. Aug 2010.
  11. Beautiful property, excellent location and superb service. May 2010.
  12. Excellent first class accommodation with lots of additional special touches by the owners. Sept 2009.
  13. The accommodation was comfortable, light and airy and very clean. The bowl of fruit, bread and milk on arrival were a nice touch and the kitchen was stocked with tea, coffee and sugar as well as cleaning materials which was a surprise and saved a trip to the shops immediately on arrival. The accommodation is well sited for the Racecourse and town centre and well placed for travelling around the area. July 2009.
  14. The little touches like milk, coffee and tea were very nice. Every time we asked the owners anything they were very accommodating. June 2009.
  15. The owner of the property included many extras in the accommodation which we found to be very beneficial. May 2009.
  16. Very well presented property. Sept 2008.
  17. A wonderful, cosy little cottage. A place to relax and get away from it all whilst still within easy reach of all the beauty of the Cotswolds. Oct 2006.
