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.

Built at the turn of the century, this is a semi-detached former lodge cottage standing on the edge of the estate village of Sherborne. An intriguing and unusual holiday haven for two with an enclosed courtyard garden to the rear and good for walking, especially when the snowdrops or bluebells are out on the estate.

As well as an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds the beautiful city of Oxford is within easy reach.

The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire and Warwickshire

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.

If not the heart of England, the Cotswolds and the neighbouring county of Warwickshire, are surely its soul - an uplifting vision of breathtaking scenery, with gently rolling countryside of hills and valleys, picturesque stone villages and fine houses. This beautiful area offers the visitor a glimpse of traditional English life, and is attractive throughout the year. There is no better way to enjoy the splendours of the Cotswolds than to stay in one of the Trust?s many holiday homes .

    Good location

    The cottage was very clean and well equipped. The housekeepers do a good job. The location and being able to walk straight from the cottage makes this place special.

    Enjoyed a very pleasant week in this cottage

    Enjoyed a very pleasant week in this cottage, helped by the beautiful weather. The cottage itself was very cosy but we both found it terribly gloomy, with its huge black fireplace and dark green painted woodwork throughout. However, the location was great and we enjoyed some lovely walks on the estate. There was a spectacular show of wood anenomies behind Sherbourne House and the Church. Thanks to the caretaker for the welcome tea tray and flowers. Anne & Michael
