With 5 bedrooms sleeping up to 10 guests comfortably, this two-story cottage is ideal for family gatherings or groups looking for a countryside escape with amenities on the doorstep. What's more, the cottage's ground floor is completely accessible for wheelchair users thanks to a spacious ground-level bedroom, wide hallways, and dedicated wet room downstairs, making it a great choice for those with additional mobility needs. A Craftmatic rise and fall single bed with electric controls and a basic push wheelchair are available. (Please request in advance). Adjacent to the owner's home, the property is only 250 yards from the town's shops, restaurants, and ancient inns, whilst a footpath leads across fields to the romantic Sudeley Castle. Full Property Description The Living Space Greeted by a beautiful mosaic Kingfisher on the doorway handmade by owner Di, a warm, welcoming tone is set from the moment you enter the front door. Opening up into a light, bright hallway, the cottage's main living areas can be found at the cottage's rear, offering plenty of space for groups of all ages to unwind in. The heart of the home is the cosy living room, decorated in an attractive palette of country-cream plus pops of purple, boasting sink-in sofas, a statement stone fireplace, and wall-mounted TV, plus sleek stone flooring complete with underfloor heating. Leading through the living room is a large conservatory with fantastic countryside views, well-equipped for entertaining evenings thanks to its 10-seater dining table, additional sofa, and pool table. Pretty French doors lead directly from the conservatory into the garden, blending indoor/outdoor living perfectly when the weather calls for it. Also sitting at the rear of the cottage is the country-style kitchen, well kitted-out for group catering. In addition to the conservatory's 10-seater dining table, the kitchen homes a smaller 4-seater diner and breakfast bar for 3; great for casual breakfasts, quick snacks, or for groups who like their own space at mealtimes. A large range cooker rounds off the stylish country feel to the kitchen, plus there's a large integrated fridge, dishwasher, and microwave at your disposal. A larger freezer can be found in the cottage's separate utility room, accessed through the kitchen, where you'll also find a handy washing machine, tumble dryer, and ironing board. Bedrooms 5 well-equipped bedrooms are found throughout the property, sleeping up to 10 adults with ease (please bring your own linen if you are using a cot): Bedroom 1 Found just off the entrance hall on the cottage's ground floor, Bedroom 1 homes twin single beds making it a great for choice for kids or adults who don't mind sharing. Unique patchwork headboards and pretty floral prints bring the room to life and, thanks to its wide doorway and accessible wet room and lavatory just down the hall, it's perfect for wheelchair users, older guests or those with mobility issues. This bedroom has a Craftmatic rise and fall single bed with electric controls. (Please request controls in advance.) Bedroom 2 Upstairs, alongside three further bedrooms, is the master of the house: a spacious double room with bright skylight windows, attractive oak flooring and bright pops of purple. There's a handy en-suite complete with bath and full-height shower, plus your own TV, wardrobe and chest of drawers. Young families can also make use of the two travel cots available to them here, with plenty of space for both. Bedroom 3 Just shy of a double, Bedroom 3 homes a comfortable 4ft bed, making it ideal for couples who don't mind getting a little cosy. Boasting the same attractive wooden flooring and calm, neutral colour palette as the rest of the house, the bedroom feels spacious thanks to light, bright dual aspect windows and even benefits from its own en-suite shower room and wall-mounted TV. Bedroom 4 With views to the rear of the property, Bedroom 4 offers a sink-in double bed, chic wooden dressing table and en-suite shower room, emitting the same ‘home away from home' feel that's evident throughout the property. Attractive wooden floors and soft, white bed linen give the room a modern yet cosy vibe, brought to life with clever hints of colour in the unique artwork and patchwork blanket box found at the bottom of the bed. Bedroom 5 With twin single beds and beautifulMore
