This little cottage is a perfect retreat for couples.
Fladbury is on the Avon, has good riverside walks from the door, 2 great pubs and the best Pie Shop in the UK!
There are also many lovely villages and towns within easy reach.

The space

We are not sure just when the cottage was built but it shows on a map of Fladbury dated 1789 so its at least 228 years old! The row of cottages may have belonged to the Church at one time and housed local families.
It is difficult to believe that a whole extended family with numerous children were brought up here, there does not seem to be enough space and the scale is very different to our modern homes. It is commonly termed a 'one up one down' cottage with a small kitchen and yard to the rear. There is no garden.
The staircase leading to the bedroom and bathroom is particularly narrow - beware those with broad shoulders!
The gas-fired stove gives a cosy glow and instant heat on chilly mornings and evenings
St John's Church dominates the centre of the village and summer Saturdays are often punctuated by pealing bells and bridal parties, a typical picture-postcard English village scene!

Guest access

The accommodation is completely self-contained with on-street parking outside. Although we live only a few miles away we have a key safe on the door so that guests are not kept waiting when they arrive in the village.

Interaction with guests

As a general rule we respect our guest's privacy. However we are always available to sort problems or give advice on great places to visit in the area.

Other things to note

You will find tea, coffee, sugar and fresh milk awaiting you.
We also make sure that salt/pepper and olive oil/vinegar etc are always available.
The kitchen is small and has a fridge, kettle, toaster, microwave oven and a plug-in single induction hob and small cooker for use on the worktop. Although the cooking facilites are limited, anyone who is used to cooking on a boat or a caravan etc, will have no problem.
There is a tiny yard behind the cottage with a rear entrance where cycles can be stored although some guests have found this to be 'tight'! We ask that cycles are not brought into or through the cottage.

Absolutely lovely accommodation. Pretty village, plenty of information in the house of places to explore and all communication with the owners was quick and pleasant. Will definately return.

Hilary and Malcom have a beautiful small cottage. It is everything you need and so nicely decorated. We had a wonderful stay.

A really pleasant stay. The village is peaceful and quiet. It's a good starting point for walks and for visiting Worcester, Gloucester, Stratford-upon-Avon and the villages in the Cotswolds.

Great little cottage and value for money. Check-in & out was very hands-off and easy-going which was appreciated. The refund policy was great, as we had to change the dates.

We loved the quaint little cottage! It has everything you need and felt homely. It also didn't feel pokey with the high ceilings upstairs and great design choices. The village was very peaceful and would recommend this cottage to anyone staying in this area.

My partner and I stayed at this cottage for 2 nights. We had a pleasant surprise walking into this lovely little cottage. It was very clean, cosy, quiet and the hosts provided a really helpful folder full of activities/suggestions, which we made good use of. We ate at one of the 2 pubs within the village one night, which was reasonably priced and the food was good. As this cottage is just on the outskirts of the cotswolds, we did have to travel if we wanted to go anywhere but this was to be expected. There were several pretty villages located within a half hour drive (especially Broadway, this place was brilliant). We would definitely stay here again, both of us could not recommend this cottage enough. Thank you.

Cottage was beautiful, perfect size for the 2 of us. The area was lovely and Hilary and Malcom's home drawn maps were great for novice map readers like us! Would definitely book again.

Malcolm and I have been living in this area for over 30 years. We are very sociable, enjoy meeting up with friends, skiing and walking, especially long treks like Offa's Dyke, Cotswold Way and the Coast to Coast. We also enjoy travelling and our favourite destination so far is New Zealand!
