This simple, cosy cottage is situated on the edge of renowned beech woodland and is part of the working Ebworth estate. It provides an ideal as a base to explore the beautiful Cotswolds with its steep valleys, exhilarating views and beautiful limestone grassland and villages where time seems to stand still.

There are plenty of walking trails and recognised cycle routes which gives you the chance to explore all the features that make the Cotswolds so special.

The pretty villages of Sheepscombe and Cranham are within easy reach with their traditional pubs, and the vibrant cities of Gloucester and Cheltenham are a short drive away.

These three counties are a chance to get closer to traditional English life, gentle rolling hedgerows alive with wildlife and wide open green spaces to relax in. Best bits include exploring the green chalk hills and woodlands of the Chilterns and discovering the history of Warwickshire, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

    Interesting location

    We stayed at the Tack Room cottage, Ebworth Centre, and we found the location very interesting. We went for several long walks around the Cotswolds plateau, over the commons and through the woods. We had a very nice lunch one day at the Butcher's Arms in Sheepscombe. Also as usual we enjoyed the cottage because of the timeless appeal of its architecture and interior fittings.

    Beautifully kept cottage

    The Tack House in the Cotswolds was a 'bijou' experience. Lovely location with walks from the door. It was all dog friendly too. The Cottage was beautifully kept, clean and the kitchen had everything I needed. Thank you to the caretaker for keeping it all so nice. The bedroom was very pleasant and plenty of storage spaces. We loved the fact that some of the original features had been kept and exploited.
