Converted from a stable block are two delightful cottages built in traditional honey coloured Cotswold stone, originally a part of an 18th Century Coaching Inn, which was then called The Crown. The stables, were used to accommodate the extra horses required to help pull the coaches up Crickley Hil. The property was bought at the end of the 19th Century by Sir William Thistleton-Dyer who was a director of Kew Gardens. Whether he had renamed it or not we are unsure but at that time it was called “The Ferns” then Crickley Court and the sloping land at the rear of the house was apparently well looked after and contained many rare and unusual plants. The cottages are situated within this beautiful setting, surrounded by the vast gardens which are very picturesque. Each has its own private garde...Converted from a stable block are two delightful cottages built in traditional honey coloured Cotswold stone, originally a part of an 18th Century Coaching Inn, which was then called The Crown.

The cottages are situated within this beautiful setting, surrounded by the vast gardens which are very picturesque. Each has its own private garden and there is also a separate children's play area with swings, slide and trampoline. Crickley Court Cottages are situated on the side of Crickley Hill, an area of outstanding natural beauty. We have good links to ALL parts of the Cotswolds via the A417, M5, A46 and A40. We are also very close to Crickley Hill Country Park and also many parts of The Cotswold Way. They are ideally placed to visit the many attractions, villages and towns of the Cotswolds. Amber Cottage sleeps 4 & Jasmine Cottage sleeps 4 + 2, they can be booked separately or together to accommodate larger groups. The Living Space The accommodation is arranged over two floors. The downstairs area comprises of a hallway which leads you to the two very comfortable and tastefully decorated bedrooms and a bathroom with separate shower and bath. The contemporary open-plan living and dining area is upstairs accessed by a charming spiral staircase. The kitchen is fully equipped and the living room has a log burning stove, ideal for cosy winter evenings. For your entertainment, there is a flat screen TV and DVD player and WiFi.

An additional cleaning fee will be incurred should there be evidence of dogs having been on beds or furniture. We strongly advise you to bring your dog's own bedding with you. Dogs must be booked and paid for in advance. Any dogs arriving without prior arrangement will need to be accommodated elsewhere at your own cost. No dog must be allowed to remain in the cottage when you are absent unless they are happy to rest in their own cage and are unlikely to bark or become distressed. A comprehensive list of walks and dog-friendly pubs is provided within the cottage. Please wash off muddy dogs before entering the cottage by using the outside tap which is situated behind Amber Cottage between the greenhouse and rear garden. A dog towel is provided – guest towels must not be used on dogs. Dogs are welcome to use the garden at the rear of your cottage but must be under supervision always. Special care needs to be taken when a dog is near the lane. Please clean up after your dog. We do not supply doggy bags, but dog waste can be deposited in doggy bags in the wheelie bins by the parking area. Please obey the Countryside Code whilst enjoying the area with your dog. Please keep your dog under close control always for their own safety as well as the comfort of others. Much of the land around Witcombe is farmland and so close control of dogs is required always to ensure that no damage is done to crops and that sheep, horses and cattle are not distressed by the presence of dogs. Upon departure, please leave the cottage as you found it. An additional cleaning fee will be incurred should excessive cleaning or dry-cleaning be required following your departure.
