Spring Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold stone property, located on a quiet lane in the peaceful and picturesque village of Ebrington, which is well known for its award winning local pub, the Ebrington Arms. The village is approximately two miles away from the famous market town of Chipping Campden, with its wide range of shops, pubs and restaurants, and is also well placed for visiting the other well-known market towns and villages of the North Cotswolds, as well as further afield places, such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Blenheim Palace. Ebrington is also surrounded by the stunning, rolling Cotswold countryside and numerous lovely walks can be accessed directly from the cottage.
This spacious cottage has a wealth of character features, including oak beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls, a traditional Aga and a large inglenook fireplace, with a wood burning stove. The character of the cottage is perfectly complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a recently converted ground floor shower room and a beautifully presented kitchen.
Spring Cottage sleeps five people, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms. There is a beautiful mature garden at the back of the property, which is lovely in all seasons, and quiet on street parking is readily available. The cottage is perfect for friends or families looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful village, surrounded by the stunning Cotswolds countryside.
Booking and payment
Character Cottages is a marketing agency and we do not own or manage any of the cottages listed on our website. Bookings made via us form a legal agreement directly between you and the property owner.

Security deposits are not required (please note that guests are still liable for any damage or additional cleaning required as a result of their actions).
The maximum occupancy of the property is five guests, at any point during your stay. Unauthorised over occupancy is a breach of our terms and conditions and may result in the cancellation of your booking and additional charges. Please consult us prior to booking if you wish to discuss the possibility of having more than five guests at the property.
Infants who sleep in a cot do not count towards the occupancy figure, however, due to space restrictions, the occupancy figure may only be exceeded by one additional infant.
Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

A travel cot (without linen) and high chair are provided, with the cot fitting best in bedroom 2. A gate is also provided that fits in the door way of the bedrooms.
Parents with young children should note that the Aga in the kitchen remains on all the time, so it will always be hot to touch.
A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, toilet rolls, etc), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety
This is an old property and has many character features, including some low doorways and steps between rooms, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, both in terms of their general movement and their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency. The first floor landing space is also quite small, with bedrooms 1 and 2 opening directly onto this small space, close to the stairs.
The path to the cottage's front door is a shared path, running alongside a neighbouring garden, and guests should therefore be considerate of the cottage's neighbours when entering or leaving the property.
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.
No smoking is permitted throughout the property.
In order to provide you with as much detail of our properties as possible, we sometimes use wide angle photography, which can make certain rooms, or spaces, appear larger than they actually are. Wherever possible, we try to include a floorplan, with detailed dimensions of rooms and areas.
If you have any queries regarding the size of any rooms or spaces, please do not hesitate to contact us.
