Summary

Fleur de Lys is a beautiful Grade II listed Cotswold stone property which sleeps eight guests, in four well presented bedrooms, with two stylish bathrooms. Set over three floors, this period property dates back to the 17th century and has retained a wealth of character features including stone mullion windows, exposed wooden beams, exposed Cotswold stone and a stunning inglenook fireplace with a gas stove.

The property has been lovingly furnished in a contemporary style with a cleverly designed ground floor layout where each room flows into the next, giving an open plan feeling to the entire level.

Location

Fleur de Lys is situated in the heart of the vibrant market town of Winchcombe, an ancient Saxon settlement known as the walking capital of the Cotswolds. The town benefits from a variety of independent shops, pubs and restaurants, and also plays host to many regular events, ranging from open gardens and tea dances to festivals and fundraisers. As well as eateries and events, it is also home to popular tourist attractions including the historic Sudeley Castle and the Gloucestershire Warwickshire Railway which makes a stop in Winchcombe to pick up passengers on its 28 mile round trip.

Winchcombe is surrounded by breathtaking countryside with a vast number of walks and cycle routes on its doorstep to discover. The renowned Cotswold Way long distance walking trail passes through the town and features on many circular walks in the area, including an energetic hike up to Belas Knap. It is also well placed for exploring the many other picturesque towns and villages of the North Cotswolds such as Cheltenham, Chipping Campden, Broadway and Snowshill, the latter being home to Snowshill Manor and the Lavender Fields, a must see in the summer months. Further afield destinations such as Warwick Castle, Stratford-upon-Avon and Oxford are easily accessible for day trips.
