  • "Perfect! This hidden gem of a flat is right on Tewkesbury High Street, but feels peaceful and private."

    Beautifully furnished in keeping with the Tudor architecture, really clean, with good WiFi, security, kitchen equipment and pet-friendly. Helpful hosts available on text, so much to do locally - you'll feel really rested and relaxed.

  • "Excellent accommodation and very clean and well equipped we had a very enjoyable week there, the accommodation is quirky and the interior furnishings is matching the accommodation, the location is very good for exploring the area, we went round the Malvern hills and Cotswolds, Tewksbury is also well worth a visit with pleasant walks and good shopping, we never had a problem parking right outside, the parking restrictions are from 9 - 5 so you are allowed 1 hour either side so as long as you are out from 10 till 3-30ish you can leave your car overnight, so we would recommend the accommodation and area unreservedly."

  • "Hi We had a lovely stay in Tewkesbury and the property is very nice and was exceptionally clean."

    Unfortunately we had issues with the bed which was very soft and sagged in the middle a sign that it now needs replacing and also one of the sofas too was in a poor way and that too was very uncomfortable with the frame of the sofa digging into your legs when sitting on it. I did take a pic of the sofa as it had seen better days. I do believe that a good bed and a comfy sofa is a must when renting out a property to paying guests.

  • "We had a wonderful stay at Burrows Court."

    The accommodation was exactly as described and was super clean and ready. Very quaint and had lots of character but obviously has been updated and perfect for a holiday. Tewkesbury is a lovely town and anybody we met were really friendly. We were a group of 4 who came for the Cheltenham festival and communication with the owner was really good and very friendly. We would highly recommend this property.

  • "What a Beautiful, well equipped apartment."

    So convenient for walking, history and culture. We would definitely recommend. The. Bedding was of incredibly high quality as were the furnishings and fittings. We used the sofa bed rather than one of the beds in the little room however as there was a patch of damp/dead plaster next to the bed that could do with a bit of attention. This on no way detracted from the experience and I would highly recommend this little gem of a place.

  • "Overall The Burrows is a lovely, characterful and cosy cottage in a very convenient central Tewkesbury location."

    We enjoyed our week there very much - the only thing preventing 5 stars for comfort is that the mattress on the main bed is fairly soft and so not great for anyone with a susceptibility to backache. Otherwise we found it very comfortable and appreciated the abundance of thoughtful touches and interesting items throughout the property.

    The beds and sofas are very comfortable and there's a lovely courtyard area too. Tewkesbury itself is an historic town and the Abbey has lovely gardens for a picnic or just to sit and relax.

The property

Located on a main road in the heart of Tewkesbury is Burrows Court, a fantastic first and second floor property, accessed via an alleyway between the cottage and the museum next door.

This property is ideal for a small family or couple wanting to explore the incredible countryside, idyllic villages and remarkably well-preserved buildings the Cotswolds has to offer.

Access the main entrance at the back of the property, via the alleyway, where you will find a large and enclosed shared courtyard garden, offering multiple seating areas, including a shed that has been converted into a 'pub' with cinema-style folding chairs, so you can enjoy some fresh air no matter the weather.

Enter the property at ground floor level, hanging your coat on one of the provided hooks and kicking off your shoes, before heading up the staircase to the main accommodation.

Discover a contemporary well-equipped kitchen with a range of appliances to support your self-catering needs, while the utility hosts a washing machine, should you need to clean any clothes after a day's hike.

Dinner can be enjoyed together at the dining table in the living/room, where traditional meets contemporary with beams, an exposed brick fireplace and original doors, plus the modern convenience of a Smart TV, which can be switched on for a family film night to round off the day.

When it's time to catch up on rest, move up to the second floor to the king-size double, which offers access to the small twin room via a set of steps across a large beam.

The twin room rests under sloping ceilings and would be most suitable for children, while adults can retain full privacy by drawing the large curtain at the end of the bed.

Start each new day with a refreshing shower in the first-floor shower room, before making your way outside to explore your wonderful surroundings.

Tewkesbury boasts some of the most remarkable architecture in the UK, with more than 350 listed buildings, plus a host of Black & White, half-timbered Tudor and Medieval character buildings.
