Absolutely beautiful cottage in an ideal location. It sits toward the end of the road, opposite a church, and is very peaceful - we could sometimes hear the church bells, but only just and it was lovely. We spent a few days away for our wedding anniversary and couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Yes, the stairs are a little steep, but it's an old cottage - there are handrails to help. Four poster bed was so sumptuous, I had the best sleep. Walk through the churchyard and turn right, which eventually leads you to the local pub/restaurant a few minutes walk (owner there was extremely friendly and we had a couple of fun evenings, live music on a Friday and great food). We visited Sudeley Castle, Chastleton House, Snowshill Manor, and the Cotswold Lavender Farm - all of which were around a 20 minute drive away from the cottage, so it was nice and central for us. Deb set out a great hamper on arrival (thank you) and was easily accessible if we had any problems. Thank you for a wonderful stay, and would definitely come back again.
Perfect cottage retreat in a beautiful area/setting. Amazing welcome hamper - the owner seems to have thought of everything. Beautiful interior, with real attention to detail throughout. Immaculately clean everywhere, lovely cottage garden, peaceful road which all enhance the property. Would we stay again? - in a heartbeat - love the idea of staying here for a few nights in mid winter. So glad we chose Bells Cottage!
We booked for two nights on our way down south. Its simply stunning. A chocolate box setting from the exterior and everything to match inside. Period features, a lovely garden and the most comfy bed I’ve had for a while. Our little girl and puppy felt most welcome with the owner supplying everything we all needed. The pub up the road perfect being dog and child friendly was a must for us. The extra touches and good contact from Deb were wonderful. It’s got every facility you would need. We’ll definitely be back, probably in the winter to try the beautiful fire. You must try this place
Location very good. A lovely village with church ,school, village hall and pub.
The pub,the Gardeners Arms is excellent . very welcoming, dog friendly, good food and lovely staff. Alderton is in easy reach of many places including Tewkesbury, Gloucester, Winchcombe, Sudeley Castle, Broadway, Bourton under water name a few.
The cottage has a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need. Good bathroom. Bedroom with four poster bed and tv. Comfortable lounge with Tv . Lovely garden with furniture, barbeque and enclosed. Conservatory with dining furniture.
very dog friendly. We had a wonderful ten day stay and it was perfect. Our dog, Sasha loved it. As she is only fourteen months old this was our first holiday with her and the cottage was ideal, lovely walks nearby and plenty of dog friendly places to see and eat at. My only comments for improvement would be that it could do with a non slip may for bath/shower. A bread bin for kitchen and the stairs to bedroom are quite steep. No problem for us but for some it could be difficult.
But other than that everything else was perfect. We especially enjoyed the welcome pack including homemade scones, jam and clotted cream.
This was our second visit and we just cannot wait to go back again, this place is a perfect haven for those of us who have hectic working lives. You can just chill out in that gorgeous four poster bed or sit in the sun in the secluded back garden with a little glass of something cheeky. We are both Vegan and Deb`s made us flapjacks that were delicious and stocked the fridge with vegan friendly goods. Cannot say enough about this little bolthole it is just so lovely and the facilities are fantastic. The village is a typical chocolate box Cotswold one with a little shop and a great pub called the Gardeners Arms which serves great food and allows dogs inside as well as in the beer garden.
We stayed at this amazing cottage for a wedding and I want to go back as soon as possible. The cottage was idyllic and full of character. Although only 1 bedroom it’s surprsingly spacious with lots of room and a beautiful cottage garden. Everything is to such a high specification and matches perfectly - white company linen and royal dalton crockery! The design, furnishing and finish of the cottage is so tasteful and fits perfectly within the character. Very welcoming with everything you could need for a short stay from condiments, cooking oils, huge selection of teas and cereals, welcome pack of bread, biscuits, crisps, milk, butter and even clean dog towels provided in the cupboard. The host was easy to get hold of, extremely accommodating, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend and love to go back.
