About this property

  • Field Cottage is a charming period cottage which has been extended over time. The stylish interiors combine luxury, period features and a modern Cotswold country style with a muted palette of colours throughout. Being elevated the cottage is perfectly situated to take full advantage of the spectacular far reaching views.

    Field Cottage is approached through a timber gate which opens to a large area providing ample parking for several cars and a garage. A porch leads into a welcoming entrance hall. To the right double doors open to a light and airy garden room with a large roof lantern, fireplace housing a wood burning stove and bi-fold doors which open to the rear terrace and frame the fabulous views towards the Malvern Hills. At the rear of the property is a generous and well-proportioned sitting room with fireplace and windows to three aspects. Both reception rooms enjoy wonderful views across the countryside. The bespoke kitchen/breakfast room is full of character and is fitted with an excellent range of cabinets and an Aga. There is ample space for dining, relaxing, entertaining and cooking. There is a bedroom on the ground floor accessed from the garden room.
    Completing the ground floor accommodation is a shower room and utility.

    On the first floor are three bedrooms, all of which are en suite. The principal bedroom, which features exposed timbers, benefits from a dressing area with built in cupboards.
    A mature landscaped garden lies to the rear of the property. The garden is principally laid to lawn with well-stocked borders and mature specimen trees. A paved terrace lies along the rear elevation and is the perfect place to sit with a coffee or cocktail and enjoy the view and sunsets.

Local information

  • Saintbury is a very attractive hillside village situated on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment with far reaching views towards the Bredon and Malvern Hills and beyond. The village, which is perhaps one of the most charming and totally unspoilt of the smaller North Cotswold villages, lies within the Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Lying between the historic wool town of Chipping Campden and the pretty village of Broadway, the village is comprised of many period houses and cottages and the Grade I Listed Church of St Nicholas.
  • Nearby Chipping Campden is perhaps among the most beautiful and unspoilt of all the Cotswold market towns and the High Street was described by Nikolaus Pesvner as “the best piece of townscape in Gloucestershire, arguably one of the best in England”.
  • The equally famous village of Broadway lies approximately three miles south west. Both provide a very good range of shops and other services catering for most day-to-day needs.
  • There is a first class and highly rated secondary school in Chipping Campden which has built a deserved reputation over the years and in addition there are several preparatory and independent schools in Cheltenham and Stratford-upon-Avon for both boys and girls.
  • The larger centres of Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham are easily accessible and provide more comprehensive shopping, leisure and cultural facilities with the latter being renowned for its selection of educational establishments, both state and private.
  • The mainline railway station at Honeybourne about 3 miles distant, provides access to London Paddington, whilst the M5 (J9) provides swift access to the Midlands and the South-West of England.
  • For those interested in country pursuits the general area provides excellent riding and walking within countryside designated as a Special Landscape Area. There are excellent sporting opportunities in the region, including golf at nearby Broadway with further courses at Naunton Downs, Stratford-upon-Avon and Cheltenham. National Hunt Racing at Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick and Worcester and Polo at Cirencester. Other sporting venues include Premiership rugby at Worcester and Gloucester, County Cricket at Worcester and a first class cricket festival at Cheltenham is held every July. Stratford-upon-Avon is home to the world renowned Royal Shakespeare Company and the Memorial Theatre.
