ALDERTON NEAR WINCHCOMBE
Bells Cottage is a beautiful Grade II listed timber framed building which has retained its original thatched roof. It is located adjacent to St Margaret of Antioch’s medieval church, which dates to the 14th Century, and sits directly on the Winchcombe Way hiking route in the heart of the village of Alderton. The cottage is perfect for a romantic break, a getaway from from the daily grindstone, or for those wishing to take advantage of the many hiking routes and picturesque villages the Cotswolds have to offer.
The character and charm of this 500-year old cottage is evident even before you enter. For a start, Church Road is a no-through road, so there is no passing traffic or traffic noise to bother you or your guests. The cottage boasts beamed ceilings and walls, a large fireplace that has a gas fired, log burner style stove for fuss and mess free real flame instant heat.

Couple that old world charm with contemporary furnishings, gas central heating, on demand hot water, a well-equipped kitchen, two 32-inch Smart televisions and high-speed fibre broadband; it guarantees to make for a very comfortable stay.
The kitchen and conservatory dining room is very well equipped, the whole house has undergone a complete refurbishment, which was completed December 2017. The kitchen is equipped with a Nespresso machine, fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, microwave and many other appliances. The china, cutlery and cookware are all high end. You will find that the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a romantic meal for two.
The sitting room has sumptuous seating, two matching armchairs and a matching two-seater sofa that turns into a double bed. There are wrought iron lights on the wall, and lamps aplenty to light even the darkest night. The walls are hung with original artworks in watercolour for a home from home feel. The 32-inch Smart flat screen TV has numerous Free View channels and a myriad of radio stations available for your viewing and listening pleasure.
The bathroom is also located on the ground floor and has everything you need. The bath has a shower fitted with a large glass splash screen, and there is, of course, a sink and a lavatory. Like the rest of the house, this room is centrally heated, so you can remain snug and warm as you soak in the tub with a glass of champagne. The towels we supply are large and fluffy, so you can remain pampered even after stepping out of the bath or shower.
When you make your way up the original wooden staircase you will discover a stunning first-floor bedroom with beamed ceiling, offering a luxurious four-poster super king-size bed, small chest of drawers, fitted oak wardrobe, with luxurious bath robes. A large wool rug sits on the polished oak floor and there are views of the church to the front and garden and hills beyond to the rear. There is a 32-inch Smart flat-screen television should you wish to watch TV from bed. The bedside tables have lamps, and there are wall lights either side of the bed too. Wi-Fi reception is excellent in the bedroom.
Bells Cottage has the added benefit of an enclosed rear garden, a great advantage if you have brought pets or children. The pretty and mature garden is a great place to sit and relax on warmer days, or to dine alfresco on a summer’s evening. We have equipped the garden with teak furniture: a garden table, four chairs and two bench seats. There is also a lockable external bicycle store, for those who have come on a cycling holiday and a small summer-house. We have designated a small area at the back of the garden for re-wilding and have sown a Cotswold wildflower grass mix which we hope will mature in years to come.
