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.

Large, beamed sitting room with gas woodburner. Modern fitted, well-equipped kitchen with dining area. Double bedroom with en-suite shower room and toilet. First floor: Two pretty bedrooms; one double and one twin. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Swallow End was just lovely! There were flowers on the table along with some food in the kitchen! The cottage was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed. It was quiet and peaceful, yet we were just a stone’s throw from Cheltenham. The facilities were good - the pool was lovely and the children enjoyed the games room. The wi-fi was a bit hit and miss, but this gave us the opportunity to do other things! The Steam Train from the Racecourse was good fun and this cottage was perfectly located to explore the whole area. We had a lovely weekend and would love to come back with lots of friends to spend a weekend away from real life!! Aug 2012.
  2. Very helpful staff. Lovely accommodation. Good swimming pool and tennis court. June 2012.
  3. Excellent. Would use again and recommend to friends. Feb 2012.
  4. One of the best places we have visited.The owners’s hospitality and personal touch is beyond words to express. For us it was from home to home.Our family had great time and will visit again in summer. Although we did not use the swimming pool,but it was nice to know it was available. Dec 2011.
  5. We loved our holiday in Swallow End, the children are still talking about it. Owners very friendly, cottage was superbly equipped, the best we’ve ever stayed in. Great location, beautiful surroundings, would definitely visit again. Sept 2011.
  6. Grandma loved the downstairs bedroom and own bathroom, no stairs for her to climb. Kitchen beautiful and well equipped. Swimming pool great although tricky to get in the zip door, swam every day. Loved the games room too. Window upstairs dangerous as child could fall out, we kept it shut. April 2011.
  7. The downstairs bedroom is very tight for space but in all other respects this property is good.The kitchen is well equipped and we appreciated the milk, tea, coffee, and other provisions which were left which was a lovely thought. April 2011.
  8. Very well equipped andclean. Dec 2010.
  9. Bread, milk and even teabags were particularly welcome after a long journey. Oct 2010.
  10. We have been to this cottage complex for several years, and find the cottages well equipped, in a lovely and convenient location, and the swimming pool is a definite plus point. Aug 2010.
  11. Very convenient for the town centre, with Park and Ride within walking distance - but free parking there anyway. Excellent shared facilities - tennis court, swimming pool etc. Owners were very helpful. Aug 2010.
  12. The property is part of a working farm and includes a swimming pool, tennis court and games room. Although the pool was cold at times and the game room was past its prime, our young children made extensive use of all the facilities and we were very satisfied. Our cottage was quite basic, but clean and spacious and we were very comfortable. The staff were friendly and considerate and allowed us to stay until noon on our final day so that our boys could take one final swim in the pool. June 2010.
  13. Nice touch - flowers on the table and tea tray laid out with biscuits. june 2010.
  14. We loved the personal touches... the decorated tree, the crackers, the bread, milk and other provisions. The house was tastefully decorated and beautifully warm! We really enjoyed our stay! Dec 2009.
  15. Really well equipped and comfortable cottage - a real home away from home. Oct 2009.
  16. Very Good for big groups as ours was. (This reply covers four flats).The Swimming pool, croquet, games made group activities v enjoyable. Oct 2008.
