This cute little pied-a-terre is situated in a great location near the centre of Winchcombe - in a small courtyard with three other properties. It consists of three rooms - lounge/diner, bedroom and en-suite room.
The standard of decor is great - imaginative pictures and art works. The bed is comfortable and the rooms are adequately sized. There is a TV, DVD player and free satellite system.
The bathroom has a full size bath with a shower over.
Access is fine but I would not bring a big car - the entry road is tight and twisty. The parking is really close - a few yards...
Overall this is a good place to stay in this beautiful Cotswold town, which just needs a little bit of a spruce up in the kitchen area and a tad more cooking equipment provided to get it up to five stars.
We enjoyed our stay at Anvil cottage in Winchcombe. The cottage was comfortable and clean and provided all the facilities we needed (including a bottle of milk and wine!) The parking was ideal and was private and the local area was very pleasant. The places we would highly recommend to visit are Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water. It was our first visit to The Cotswolds and we would go again and stay at Anvil cottage. Thanks to Julia for a great stay.
Stayed for 2 nights. Nicely decorated. Bottle of wine and milk in fridge was great touch. Julia was very quick to respond to emails and gave good directions an tips on where to eat in winchcombe. The bonus is an allocated parking space (however a tight turn into the property-glad I have a small car-although there was an estate car parked also). A lovely little village to walk around am score all back streets (I like looking at all the old architecture). Had dinner at Corner Cupboard -great find. Food fanatics on north street also lovely. I would definitely visit this lovely town an atayvan Anvil cottage again.
This, to us, was a perfect little find, and a perfect little getaway after work on a Friday. We stayed for two nights, and it was perfect for what we needed. Cottage perfectly located for the local bars, inns, restaurants, shops, and general mooching. Tucked away in a very quiet courtyard (quite a tight turn for a larger car into the courtyard itself). Unfortunately it rained all weekend for us, but our umbrella came in use, and with everything in short walking distance didn't worry us one bit. Cottage was light, airy, lovely decoration, comfy, and smelt gorgeous. We visited Sudeley Castle, within walking distance, and dined at Lion Inn Friday night (is a must! - maybe try and book - we were lucky to get a table Friday evening) we also treated ourselves to No5 North Street on Saturday evening, which had an amazing chef, and awesome dining experience. I would totally recommend this little cottage, and its location, and i think we will most certainly be returning soon. The owner was very helpful with her information of how to find, and location / local areas. Thank you.
My boyfriend and I stayed at Anvil Cottage for a long weekend.
The pictures accurately describe the cottage. It is a good size for a couple. Well furnished. The kitchen is well equipped which was ideal for us, as we like cooking meals in. Very clean and well maintained. Shower works very well indeed. We slept well too as it is very nice and quite.
The cottage is well located within Winchcombe. Charming pubs are only a few minutes walk away. There are also a great number of walks in the area.
Julia was a great host. Her instructions, particularly on how to get to the cottage were great. Very prompt at replying.
A superb deal, particularly given the price. I would recommend Anvil.
