  • "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.

  • "We had a fabulous week staying at Sixpenny Cottage."

    It is a little tardis and comfortably housed nine people for the week. The property works particularly well for cooking and entertaining inside. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas are all open and work really well together and are beautifully decorated and presented - as is the rest of the Cottage. In spite of an atrocious week as far as the weather was concerned, we had a great week - and Sixpenny Cottage more than played its part in that. Neil and Rachel Everyone was impressed with the kitchen and how well it was stocked for entertaining a large number of people

  • "We had a lovely stay at Sixpenny Cottage."

    We enjoyed the downstairs area in particular; the kitchen was well equipped, and the area was very spacious. The location was also great, and we were able to walk into Bourton in the Water directly from the property. Thanks for a great stay!

  • "This was such a fantastic trip!"

    We booked for 11 of us for a weekend to celebrate a friend's 30th. The house is super comfortable, eccentrically decorated and was perfect for what we wanted - a good hideout for sitting around, playing games, watching rugby and country walks. The kitchen - important because we cooked mega meals - is equipped with EVERYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF. Honestly, it has absolutely everything you could need - even an old fashioned waffle iron! It's also generous with space, lots of storage for food and drinks, and still open plan so those who are cooking can still be involved in the rest of the house. Beds are exceptionally comfortable, house was warm and dry, and the neighbours were very kind when one of us accidentally (in the dark) slid into the grass entrance to a farm and helped tow his car out. Would definitely book again!

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage, it was an ideal setting for a winter weekend away."

    Really beautiful and you can see that the owner/ character cottages has spent a long time making this space what it is. All the small details make this cottage so special and we loved how open plan the ground floor was. The views in the morning were stunning as were the stars in the night!

  • "Superb cottage in the Cotswold - It was perfect for 10 people."

    Highly recommend it

  • "Great location as the entire Cotswolds is in touching distance."

    The village is not a tourist location and you will get the proper feel of living in a reclusive village-style environment together with the period styled property all in all is a great experience. The drive off the main road to the property is in itself very enjoyable. Great views just as the pics described. The impressive size of the property as we were a party of 9 and had ample living area.

  • "Very comfortable and stylish."

    We loved the open plan living space as it meant the whole family could spend time together for the weekend. The view on the patio is beautiful too. Very quiet and peaceful. We’d highly recommend staying here!

The property

Sixpenny Cottage is a luxurious, detached Cotswold stone property, which has been lovingly renovated to create a stylish blend of contemporary and character features.

Resting on the gentle slope of a hill, with spectacular views over the Windrush Valley, in the peaceful hamlet of Clapton-on-the-Hill, this cottage is the perfect retreat for a large family or group of friends to enjoy a relaxing holiday in the stunning Cotswolds.

Park up in one of two off-road parking spaces before unloading your bags and soaking up your spectacular surroundings, before making your way through the front door that opens into a handy hallway where you can store coats and muddy shoes, wash down in the cloakroom, and make your way through the property.

You will find stunning traditional character features cleverly complimented by contemporary décor and furnishings in the bright and sociable open-plan living space, which is complete with a well-equipped and smart kitchen, and a welcoming living/dining room that contains an ornate stone fireplace, home to a warming woodburning stove.

The chef of the group will have no trouble rustling up the evening meal in the kitchen before the whole group retreats to the large dining table, which offers beautiful views over the Windrush Valley.

A handy utility room is located at the rear of the kitchen and contains many facilities including a large fridge/freezer and double electric oven, giving access outside via an external door.

For some peace and quiet from the group, head into the relaxing snug room where you will be able to catch up on your favourite shows on the Freeview TV from the comfort of the double sofa bed.

When sleep is calling, make your way up the lovely staircase and onto the first floor where you will find four beautiful bedrooms and the bathroom; the master bedroom is elegantly decorated, has high vaulted ceilings and offers stunning views over the Windrush Valley which comes with a luxurious, large en-suite bathroom with an inviting freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower.

Bedroom two has wonderful Valley views, contains a welcoming king-size bed and has an en-suite shower room.

Bedroom three is perfect for children and contains twin beds, with an en-suite shower room.

Bedroom five contains a double bed which is made up French style (two single duvets).

A further steep staircase leads up from the first-floor landing to the beautiful eaves of the cottage on the second floor where you will find bedroom four, with whitewashed Cotswold stone wall and lovely beams, this room contains a king size bed.

On warmer days, enjoy your morning coffee in the spectacular garden that has unspoilt views over Windrush Valley and is home to a patio terrace which contains an outdoor table set and a barbecue, with steps leading down into the well-kept lawn area which has an unprotected ledge at the end, with a short drop down to a privately owned field in the open countryside.

The small church of St James dates back to the 11th century, which holds services twice a month and in the summer months, hosts a Benefice service attracting around 100 people, which is held in a local barn with lunch served afterwards.

The neighbouring village of Sherborne is home to a popular village shop and tea room, which provides locals and visitors with a vital social hub, offering locally sourced groceries and everyday essentials, as well as serving coffees, breakfast, lunch and home-made cakes and more.

For your wider needs, Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as the ‘Venice of the Cotswolds’ due to the low arched bridges that cross over the River Windrush, offers a range of independent shops and restaurants such as Cotswolds Antiques and Tea Room and the lovely Kingsbridge riverside pub, as well as Birdland Park and Gardens where you can enjoy the wildlife.

For an enchanting stay in the Cotswolds, make Sixpenny Cottage your base.

About the location


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.
