  • "Lovely stay, great roof terrace!"

    ClaireMay 2021

  • "A lovely cottage full of character."

    Great location very close to the centre of Tetbury. Kitchen is well equipped but Tetbury is full of lovely places to eat out too.

  • "Had a fab week’s staycation in Tetbury in the lovely Elephant Cottage."

    Great location for all the amenities and some beautiful local walks. The cottage was perfect for a week’s relaxation, and we really enjoyed the luxury of sitting out on the terrace in the sunshine.

  • "We really did enjoy our stay and were very sad to leave yesterday."

    The cottage was the perfect size for my 3 friends and I and we loved the layout of the property - the kitchen-diner made for very sociable cooking/meal times; the snug upstairs gave us comfortable space to play card games and the decor and interiors were perfectly stylish. Brilliant location; we explored Tetbury and all the little shops, did a big food shop on Friday at the local Tesco and used one of the leaflets provided to do a 10km walk on the Sunday, finished off with a lovely roast at the Royal Oak pub. We were also very pleased to be greeted with a lovely little chocolate cake!

The property

Resting in the centre of the wonderful market town of Tetbury, is this stylish, Grade ll listed townhouse, Elephant Cottage.

Finished to a high standard with contemporary décor that blends with the original character features, it boasts a secluded roof terrace and is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful South Cotswolds for a gathering of friends or a family.

Three steps lead you up to the front door, which opens into the welcoming entrance hall with a rack to store your coats and boots.

The beautiful parquet flooring leads you into the sitting room that is bathed in natural light through its original windows and is finished to an exceptionally high standard, with exposed beams and an oriental silk rug; get the open fire crackling away to warm up the room and look forward to chilling out on the inviting seating of an evening.

A step leads you up to the open-plan kitchen/diner, where the stunning marble topped island takes centre stage.

Finished to a contemporary design, you can look forward to making use of the appliances to rustle up delicious home-cooked meals and retreating to the wooden dining table with your loved ones to tuck into your meal and toast a glass to the start of your holiday!

Music buffs will be delighted to find an antique piano located in this room.

Double doors lead you into the handy utility room, which benefits from a washer/dryer, and the final room on the ground floor is a useful cloakroom.

Upstairs, a beautiful Cotswold stone wall welcomes you onto the floor, as you enter into the delightful snug room, with a welcoming sofa that opens up to a 4ft double bed that is available on request, as well as beautiful décor and access onto the stunning roof terrace which is a peaceful spot for enjoying the sunshine, with tall walls lined with seating and a glass top table cleverly looking down into the dining room below.

About the location


Cirencester 10 miles.

Tetbury retains a wealth of character within its ancient streets. The town’s origins date back to 681, but it was during the Middle Ages that it flourished as one of the major markets for The Cotswold wool trade. Nowadays The Market Hall is still home to a busy general market every Wednesday, whilst the town as a whole is something of a mecca for antique hunters with several shops in the town and regular fairs in the vicinity. Closeby is the Forestry Commission’s Westonbirt Arboretum, one of the largest collections of rare shrubs and trees in Europe, whilst further afield (but still within easy driving distance) are the elegant Regency cities of Bath and Cheltenham, Shakespeare’s Stratford and other attractions such as the internationally renowned Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust.

Region Information

Note: An initial basket of logs is provided for the open fire between October and March, and further log supplies can be purchased locally. Note: There is a 4ft double sofa bed in the snug which can be set up on request. Note: This is an old, Grade II listed property with many character features including narrow and steep stairs, low beams and multiple floors, all of which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility. Note: The front door of Elephant Cottage has steps down onto the street and so guests with young children should take particular care to ensure that children are supervised when the door is open. Note: The roof terrace is enclosed, however children should be supervised outside at all times as there is a low wall at the end. Note: The smoke and CO detectors operate on a sound only basis and, therefore, those who have serious impairment of hearing may not be able to hear the alarm systems and could be at risk. Note: Barbecues are not permitted on the roof terrace due to the fire risk they pose.
