This section of the page features an image gallery, so if you're using a screen reader you may wish to jump to the main content.

Bog Cottage is set within the wonderful grounds of Upton House and Gardens. Originally a banqueting house in the eighteenth century, this warm red brick building was converted to a cottage by Viscount Bearsted in the 1930s. It overlooks the pretty bog garden, also created in the 1930s with lush green plants and streams running through it. With the views from the large sash windows and its lofty interior it gives a jolly garden party feel. It is also the ideal location to explore everything Warwickshire has to offer.

    Made enjoyable...

    Peace and quiet. WiFi. View of the bog garden even though it was closed for the Season. The cottage was nice and warm to arrive to, and the facilities and equipment were very good.
