Description

The Vine is a warm haven from which guests can enjoy the beauty of the Cotswold villages and walking paths. We have enjoyed welcoming guests to our home over the last six years and all guests have been impressed by the attention to detail and luxurious appointment of this property. Enter via you own entrance onto the limestone floored sitting room, slip your shoes off and enjoy the underfloor heating whilst resting on the Heals of London hand made sofa catching up on the sport via the wall mounted 50 inch TV. The stairs lead to the bedroom suite, the inviting John Lewis King Size Bed is topped with the finest thread count Egyptian cotton sheets and quilted covers, view from the window is toward Cleeve Hill the highest point in the Cotswolds. The Bathroom has a slipper bath and separate shower, underfloor heated Travertine tiles will keep you warm with views to Langley Hill. Fancy cooking or a takeaway, you can dine at the granite topped dining table with wall lighting by Jasper Conran, no need to do the washing as a dishwasher is provided. The landscaped terrace is yours to enjoy with a bbq or just relax with a glass of wine from the fridge; beyond the terrace the lawn backs onto open country fields and Cotswold Hills. Winchcombe is one of the most genuine and pretty Cotswold villages. Fortunately, Winchcombe is not not the main tourist trail and therefore it is less busy than some of the most well trod Cotswold villages. What is does have is all the beauty but with none of the crowds of day visitors. Winchcombe's origins go back as far as Anglo-Saxon times and it was once famous for its wool industry. The stunning Sudeley Castle is located in Winchcombe and well worth a day visit. Home of Lady Ashcombe and once home to Katherine Parr, Sudeley is indeed a must on your to-do list. The town is blessed with numerous pubs and restaurants with a good range of food from traditional pub grub, gastro pubs and first class elegant dining. You can eat in a different place every night of the week all within walking distance of the cottage. Access to Cheltenham Racecourse is just 10 minutes over Cleave Hill. Cheltenham is home to the most famous jump racing circuit, Prestbury Park. The famous Cheltenham Festival takes place in March each year and is known as the shining jewel in the jump racing calendar. If you can't make it in March there are many other race days to attend during the year. Cheltenham Spa should definitely be on your "to do" list, with its café culture and wide boulevards, excellent shopping and impressive Georgian architecture. Now home to The Ivy restaurant, but remember to book ahead. Cheltenham is lucky to be the location of many 'Festivals' each year. These are often advertised on the BBC. The Jazz Festival in May, Science Festival in June, Music Festival in July and the Literature Festival in October. It is worth booking tickets if you are staying during one of these peak periods. All events are well worth attending and take place in and around the impressive Montpellier Gardens.

If you like classic cars you will love Prescott. Prescott Hill Climb is just a short drive away in a neighbouring village and if the weather is fine there is nothing better than a day with a picnic on the hillside watching the classic cars race up the circuit. If Steam Trains take your fancy, we are well positioned with Winchcombe's very own steam train and station. The Gloucestershire Steam Railway website will have more information and a timetable of events. A little further afield but all within an hour's drive is Stratford Upon Avon, Warwick Castle, Blenheim Place and the beautiful city of Oxford.

Please note we do not accept dogs or long term let enquiries. The property is adjoining our family home and the garden is shared with ourselves although you can enjoy your own private terrace.
Next Availability is 3rd - 10th September. Booking Autumn breaks now with a low deposit.

One of the best stays we have had so far.

By Shweta on 19-Mar-2022

One of the best stays we have had so far. The apartment was meticulously done, with a well kept garden. We loved so many things about the apartment - the daffodils, the beautiful garden, the outdoor seating overlooking the green open fields, the skylight, the artwork in the house, spotlessly clean bedroom, bath and kitchen. The kitchen had a microwave, an induction heater and enough utensils for cooking. It was like a dream house. Couldn''''t have asked for a better stay. Very thoughtful and kind of the hosts for the welcome drinks. The location was perfect. Winchcombe is a sleepy little town with beautiful hiking trails and some really good pubs - far from the madding crowd, yet not so far from the bustling town of Cheltenham where one can find numerous restaurants and supermarkets. Absolutely loved the stay and highly recommend it. Thank you Amanda and Paul for making our stay so beautiful. Regards Shweta and Jay

The Vine is a real gem!

By Iain on 04-Mar-2022

The Vine is a real gem! Great location for exploring the Cotswolds and the wonderful trails. Spacious, well presented and very clean, we couldn’t have asked for a nicer apartment backed up with a great host in Amanda who was very quick to respond in helping organise our break and communicate all the details for a smooth visit. Totally recommend the Vine if you need a clean, well appointed base for the Cotswolds!
