Stable Cottage was formerly the stables for the nearby 17th century coaching inn, and is located in the idyllic hamlet of Fossebridge, by the River Coln. Overlooking the lovely grounds of the Inn at Fossebridge, there are many stunning walks in the surrounding Coln Valley, and the property is ideally located for exploring the entire Cotswolds region, including the many picturesque market towns and villages, as well as day trips to places such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath.
The graded II listed stables were solidly built in Cotswold stone and have been converted to form a beautiful, single storey cottage. The character of the original stables has been retained via the incorporation of stable doors and original oak beams into the cottage, and enhanced by the quality of the finishings, including oak doors, windows and skirting boards. The character of the cottage is complemented by its facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV with a Sky package, including Sky Sports, as well as a well-presented kitchen.
Stable Cottage sleeps a maximum of 4+2 guests, in three bedrooms, with two bathrooms (with the +2 being bunk beds for children, which are in a small bedroom that connects the master bedroom to the rest of the cottage). There is off street parking and a private outside space for guests directly in front of the cottage. Stable Cottage is an ideal location for families or groups of friends, looking for a relaxing retreat.
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.
For bookings commencing more than 10 weeks in advance, a 30% non-refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking. The balance payment is then due 10 weeks prior to arrival.
All payments are made subject to the cancellation policy set out in the standard Booking Conditions.
A security deposit of £200 is payable, which is returned after the letting period, subject to an inspection of the property. For the avoidance of doubt, guests are requested to leave the property in a reasonable condition, consistent with the property's appearance upon arrival. In the event that the owners, or their appointed housekeepers, have to spend additional time tidying up after your departure, then the cost of this extra time may be deducted from your security deposit. The security deposit is payable prior to arrival at the property, via a bank transfer or a valid debit or credit card.
The maximum occupancy of the property is four adults and two children, 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 six 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 up to one additional infant.
Stable Cottage accepts up to two medium sized dogs, at a cost of £20 per booking per dog.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs stay off the furniture, including beds, and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests. These are laundered by Cotswold Linen Press to provide crisp fresh sheets, all lightly infused with lavender fragrance, for that perfect Cotswold touch.

A very limited quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. dishwasher tablets, bin bags, toilet rolls), however, you should not expect the quantity of these provisions to be sufficient for the duration of your stay.
Accessibility, health and safety

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.
