Almsbury Farmhouse - sleeps 14 guests in 7 bedrooms

Family-friendly cottage in Cheltenham
Almsbury Farmhouse is one of the largest properties on the Sudeley Estate, accommodating 14 guests comfortably across the main farmhouse and the separate self-contained annexe, which is complete with its own kitchen and living area. Surrounded by open, expansive garden and within just a short walk of both Sudeley Castle and the town of Winchcombe, Almsbury's location is idyllic. Bursting with unique period features, hidden staircases, surprise rooms and all the utilities and equipment you will need, Almsbury is the ideal property for larger groups and families looking for a little more space.

Spread over three floors, on the ground floor guests have use of a cosy sitting room, impressively large dining room, kitchen, utility room, children's playroom, downstairs WC and snug/breakfast room. There is access to the first floor via two separate staircases, where three sumptuous king size double bedrooms can be found, two with en-suite bathrooms as well as one family bathroom. Go up a smaller staircase to the second floor, and you will find three twin bedrooms, one is very large with plenty of beanbags – making for a great alternative playroom! There is also another family bathroom on the second floor. The annexe is self-contained, featuring a downstairs kitchen/living area and upstairs double bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Outside, guests have access to a large garden, as well as a raised decking area with outdoor dining furniture.

Lady Ashcombe has taken a special interest in the design and furnishing of the farmhouse and has personally selected works of art, objects and furniture that reflect the history and unique character of the building. Some of the contents come directly from the Castle's collection, others from local antique shops and auction rooms.

5/5 Excellent

Superb property for a family or group gathering.
Almsbury Farmhouse is tucked away on the drive to Sudely Castle but within easy walking distance of the town. It had plenty of accommodation and facilities for our family group and the large garden was ideal for our young grandchildren and dogs to run around in. The kitchen is extremely well appointed including a range cooker, a fridge freezer plus another fridge, dishwasher & nespresso machine. There is plenty of crockery, glassware, cutlery, bakeware, cooking utensils - everything one would need. The utility makes a good place for dogs to sleep. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with plenty of cupboards and wardrobes. All bathrooms have good quality shower gel and body lotion. Towels are plentiful. A real plus is free entry to Sudely Castle which has beautiful gardens, an adventure playground, shop and cafe. All the family, even the grandchildrem, throughly enjoyed visiting.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely farmhouse

5/5 Excellent

Autumn weekend
We had a lovely time at this warm, welcoming house. It was so nice not to touch the cars all weekend as the walk to the castle, the stroll into Winchcombe, as well as a good, muddy walk on Sunday meant there was plenty to do in the immediate area.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful weekend in Winchcombe!
Had an amazing stay in this beautiful cottage, plenty of amenities, amazing grounds and great that access to the local castle is also included!

5/5 Excellent

Excellent house and location for a family get together
Comfortable and well equipped property. Sudeley castle is well worth a visit and Winchcombe is a very pleasant.
