Woodwells Farm Cottage at Owlpen Manor Uley
An introduction to Woodwells Farm Cottage at Owlpen Manor Uley
Woodwells Farm Cottage is a dog friendly, self catering Cotswolds holiday cottage in Gloucestershire sleeping 5 or 6.
This lovely, spacious Cotswold stone farmhouse is approached up a long and sometimes bumpy private drive. It leads behind the church and manor house, past Manor Farm and Over Court cottages, into the heart of the beech woods.
Here is a hideaway that must be about as remote as you can get from the twentieth century in southern England, yet with all the comforts of Owlpen's ever-popular cottages. A farmstead at Woodwells is recorded in 1280. Today you will find, in a sunny clearing of the wooded hills, a picturesque farmhouse built in 1877.
Downstairs a porch leads to the front hall, with an elegant dining-room seating eight to the right and a pretty Victorian sitting-room to the left. There is a modern farmhouse kitchen/breakfast room, fully equipped with a microwave, fridge/freezer and dishwasher. Beyond is a back door and hallway with space for country clothes, coats and boots. There is a shower room (with wash basin and lavatory), making the twin-bedded room here independent.
Upstairs are two spacious double bedrooms, both with double beds (one with a fine Victorian brass bed), and a large bathroom.
The whole house is especially cosy - with pictures, antiques and chintz. It is set in a large private garden.
