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. Lovely cosy cottage with good facilities. Really appreciated all the extras laid on ie welcome pack of food - this is the only English Country Cottage we have stayed in which has been so generous. Good games room with appropriate equipment in it and lovely tennis court. Only slight downside was the pool which although lovely and clean was housed in a "bubble" which was a little off putting. Other than that all great. Oct 2012.
  2. The cottages are very well furnished. Provisions for when you arrive are really useful, e.g. coffee, tea, milk, biscuits, fruit, sugar, bread butter. Plenty of cooking pans, cutlery, plates etc. Overall excellent presentation of accommodation. July 2012.
  3. Fantastic, have booked again for next year. July 2012.
  4. Was very impressed by the level of cleanliness throughout the property and the quality of beds and the linen. We were all particularly struck by the welcoming touches: the bowl of fresh fruit; the biscuits; the butter, bread, tea and coffee. As we had been on the road for most of the day these small gestures made us feel very welcome. The staff on-site were all very friendly and helpful and our holiday was lovely - just the break we needed. The pots, pans and kitchen equipment were all good and we were able to provide cooked meals for our family with no difficulty. The children loved the swimming pool and the tennis court, which had the most wonderful views. The pool was warm and clean and we all enjoyed our daily swims. I felt that the absence of views from the property was its biggest drawback, but maybe that’s just me. The kitchen was small for six people and in the photo it seemed bigger. June 2012.
  5. Beautiful weather helped a lot but the property was excellent in every way and the swimming pool was perfect at the end of a hot day. May 2012.
  6. We were really pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the accommodation. A nice welcome pack - tea, coffee, bread, milk, fruit and everything needed for a relaxed stay. All very clean and tidy really made the holiday feel home from home. The indoor pool a winner for the children. Would definitely go back again. Oct 2011.
  7. The property itself could not have suited us better. The courtesy and care of the owners as always were greatly appreciated by the whole family. Aug 2011.
  8. It’s been a perfect holiday destination for our children and grandchildren. April 2011.
  9. The presentation on arrival was excellent. The provision of a bowl of fruit was the most impressive. The facilities were also good. Swimming pool, games room, tennis court. Sept 2010.
  10. Met all the needs of our stay. July 2010.
  11. Personal welcome by owner (provision of tea, biscuits etc much appreciated.) July 2010.
  12. I chose this cottage because my father suffers from Parkinson Disease. The ground floor self contained bedroom was excellent for him and the rooms were big enough for him to move around with his frame. The cottage was enchanting and very comfortable. May 2010.
  13. Heating, both central and the gas fire, very effective. There was a quite cold spell while we were staying at Hunting Butts Cottages. April 2010.
  14. Good size kitchen and upstairs lounge. Dec 2009.
  15. The rooms were nicely laid out, everything we needed was there. Even on discovering something was not working it was replaced immediately. Oct 2009.
  16. Well decorated, spacious, clean, nice touches e.g. fresh milk, tea, bread, flowers etc. Aug 2009.
  17. Very well equipped property. Welcome pack of groceries including flower, fruit, bread and butter on arrival. Tea, coffee and sugar also included. On site facilities excellent. Aug 2008.
  18. Excellent facilities attached to the accommodation, games room, internet access, pool etc. July 2006.
