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. What a great cottage, lovely touches too, the owners were great, very friendly, and those extra touches like bread, milk. tea, coffee, sugar, butter, lots of fruit and lovely flowers. Already booked for next year. July 2012.
  2. Eleven of us enjoyed a good holiday there for a week and the owners were extremely helpful. Would certainly recommend it. April 2012.
  3. It is a lovley cottage with enough space for our group of 11. The kitchen is well equiped but small for cooking so we have take aways when we stay. This is our 3rd year and will be back as the extra amenities just add to the chilled out nature of the stay. March 2012.
  4. Very comfortable overall. Kitchen was very small for such a large property and a long way from the dining room. Swimming, games room and outdoor activity areas very good. Very conveniently situated for Cheltenham and the racecourse. March 2012.
  5. What a fabulous cottage, this is the third time we have returned to walnut tree house and continues to exceed our expectations. There are a few improvements with new highchairs, extra beds and travel cots but most of all a refurbished kitchen. We love the swimming pool and games room. Playground and park about 1o minute walk and cheltenham shopping about 20 minute walk. Brilliant location. We are going back next year. Feb 2012.
  6. Very comfortable, beautifully restored barns for a 3 generation get together. Downstairs twin room with walk in shower was much appreciated, and the conservatory was great for a family party seating 13 of us. We enjoyed the tennis, table tennis, etc and Great Uncle won the croquet! The Royal Oak at Prestbury is a must - a proper pub and the food is sooo lovely! The steam train ride was fun from the race course. Oct 2011.
  7. Nice location, the swimming pool was a nice feature. Feb 2011.
  8. Very clean and well maintained property. Bedrooms were all a good size and very comfortable. The swimming pool and tennis court were excellent, the games room though functional could do with a little TLC. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Jan 2011.
  9. Location to Cheltenham town and races. Kitchen was on the small side but was very well equipped. The house was warm, clean and cosy we had a great weekend. Jan 2010.

  15. Spacious accomodation, very well equipped with a secluded garden and use of a pool. May 2010.
  16. The cottage is lovely and the facilities very good. The kitchen and lounge are smaller than you might expect but still adequate even for 11 people to sit around and cook a meal. Feb 2010.
  17. The cottage was more than we expected, it was my 65 birthday and we worried about weather but the snow was perfect. Over all everything was just perfect, we cant wait to go back. Jan 2009.
  18. The property was very well equipped with ample crockery and glassware. The conservatory/dining area was spacious. The games room, swimming pool and tennis courts provided plenty to occupy younger members of our party. Dec 2009.
  19. Fantastic stay, lovely property, everybody had an enjoyable stay, would recommend. Nov 2009.
  20. The whole property was excellent, the only one little thing was that the kitchen was a bit small with no place to store any food, but was compensated for in that as well as a small fridge in the kitchen there a much larger frigde/freezer by the back door. Oct 2009.
