    “We loved our stay at Sixpenny Cottage, a sweet small name for a large and accommodating house.”

    Our stay at Sixpenny Cottage went above and beyond our expectations. The house is so beautifully decorated, so warm, and supplied with everything a large family could need, we were free to enjoy ourselves over Christmas 2021.

About the location

CHELTENHAM

Tewkesbury 5.9 miles; Cirencester 14.7 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 30 miles;

Cheltenham is a town in Gloucestershire and lies beneath Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds and above the vale of the River Severn. It is known as 'The Western Gateway to the Cotswolds'. This edge-of-the Cotswolds spa town is hard to beat for refined elegance and Regency terraces, annual festivals, Ladies' College and racecourse. Also fortnightly farmers markets, classy shops and restaurants all surrounded by glorious countryside. The town is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. It's also known for Regency buildings, including the Pittville Pump Room, a remnant of Cheltenham’s past as a spa town. There's fine art at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre has an ornate auditorium.

Note: Parking for two cars is available: one space is in front of the property, with the second space on the driveway, however the driveway is quite steep, so it is only suitable for a 4x4 vehicle; further quiet on-street parking is available in the village.

Note: The property is on a hill and has a terraced garden, which has some unprotected ledges therefore young children should therefore be supervised outside at all times.

Note: This property has multiple floors and there are steep stairs to the second floor, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility.

Note: No stag/hen or similar parties.
