Newton Cottage is a Cotswold stone property built in the 18th Century offering all the architectural features of the period and area with stone mullion windows, Cotswold stone tiled roof and dry stone walls. It is detached and set off a single track lane in the small village of Amberley situated on the edge of Minchinhampton Common, the largest National Trust common land in the country.
The front door opens directly into a large sitting room with stone fireplace and wood-burning stove. There is a dining area and stairs leading up the bedrooms upstairs. These are situated off a landing. There is a double room and a single room with bunk beds (full size singles). Both bedrooms look out across the valley with lovely views across the countryside to Nailsworth and beyond. Downstairs there is a fully fitted kitchen and bathroom with a stable door leading out the private south facing garden.
The cottage offers guests a peaceful retreat away from the stresses of modern life. It has been beautifully appointed with deep pocket sprung mattresses and Egyptian cotton sheets ensuring a good nights sleep, antique furniture and thoughtful detailing. The area offers wonderful walking and hiking opportunities with excellent pubs and restaurants in the vicinity. The larger towns of Cheltenham, Bath and Cirencester provide wonderful shopping and cultural opportunities.
Newton Cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the Cotswolds. The owners live nearby and are only too happy to answer any queries and to ensure guests have a relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

What a find!
What a find!
Spent a week in this beautiful Cotswold cottage in Amberley, UK, it is a jewel. We were there in May, drizzled rain on several days, but the cottage was warm and comfortable inside. For American visitors, the road to the cottage is very narrow, but once navigated a few times, it is no problem and so worth it. Pictures are accurate, but much better in person. Garden is lovely. The owner was handy by phone when we needed additional directions to the cottage and she lives nearby. Up the hill you can walk to the Black Horse Pub and the Amberley Inn, both with wonderful food. Bath is 40 minutes away and there are several sites nearby that are well worth your time. We hated to leave.

My adult daughter and I recently spent five nights at Newton Cottage. It was all that we had been hoping for. It was charming, cosy, comfortable, clean and with all the amenities we might wish for. The location was an absolute delight: hilly terrain, lovely views, traditional stone houses, winding narrow lanes and stone fences, an old-world atmosphere. It took us a while to get our bearings so every walk around the district became a journey of discovery. We were well served by the local "Black Horse" pub and the nearby town of Nailsworth. The location was also convenient for day trips to other parts of the Cotswolds, to Oxford and Blenheim Palace, and to Bath.

My husband and I recently spent a week at Newton Cottage. Jayne was extremely helpful. The cottage is as beautiful and charming as depicted in the pictures! We were greeted by snow and bitter cold our first morning. The woodstove was a wonderful addition! Jayne and other guests left plenty of information on local sites, grocery stores, etc. We included these tips and destinations in our daily wanderings about the Cotswolds. The Black Horse Pub offered great food and a very friendly atmosphere. The view of the snow-covered hills and valley was magnificent from there! Newton Cottage felt like home and we do hope to retun one day, soon!

Stayed in cottage for one week. Everything was wonderful. Very charming! The cottage is decorated beautifully. The photos and descriptions were accurate. Beds, linens, everything was top notch. Immaculately clean. Owner thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. I would highly recommend staying here. There are also two excellent pubs within easy walking distance. One of our favorites was the Black Horse.Also gorgeous views from lovely back garden. The owner was helpful answering all of our questions prior to arriving. We had a wonderful stay.

About the owner: We are Peter and Jayne Davie. We have lived in the Cotswolds for nine years and feel very lucky to be bringing up our two sons in such a beautiful part of the country. Peter works for a large wine and spirits company and spends a lot of his time in London and abroad leaving Jayne to run our two holiday cottages (see our other cottage VRBO listing: 236070). Peter is a keen gardener and maintains the cottage gardens himself. Jayne spends much of the summer finding different recipes to use the glut of vegetables Peter grows. Our guests often benefit from our productive harvests! We are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the Cotswolds and are only too happy to help our guests get the best from their stay in the area.
Why the Owner Chose Cirencester:
We had been looking for a while in the area for another cottage to offer as a holiday rental when we came across Newton Cottage which was in need of much refurbishment and renovation. We spent the autumn and winter of 2009 carrying out all the work necessary to offer it as high quality self-catering accommodation. We are familiar with the area and live nearby ensuring we were on site most days whilst the work was being carried out. We love the architecture of the area and Newton Cottage is typical of the weavers/agricultural workers cottages found all over the Cotswolds. We hope you will agree that we have restored the cottage sympathetically and are delighted to offer this as a holiday destination.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Newton Cottage offers peace and tranquility. It's situation in the heart of the Cotswolds is an ideal place from which to explore the area. It is a particularly good area for walking and hiking. Minchinhampton Golf Course is only two miles away where we are members and can offer guests access to any of the three courses.
