Honeysuckle Cottage is a beautiful grade II listed thatched cottage, located in the north-east of The Cotswolds, looking out over the village green in the peaceful little village of Sutton-under-Brailes. Many lovely walks can be accessed directly from the cottage and a number of local pubs are a pleasant walk away. The village is close to the famous Cotswold market towns of Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Norton and Chipping Campden, as well as being within easy reach of well known tourist attractions, such as Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle and Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.
The traditional cottage has a lovely character feel to it and is built from Cotswold stone, with a thatched roof and wooden windows and doors. Complementing the character of the cottage are modern facilities, including wireless internet access, a flatscreen TV and a well presented kitchen.
Honeysuckle Cottage sleeps a maximum of four people, in two bedrooms, with a family bathroom and a separate shower room. There is an enclosed garden to the side of the property, with a right of way through to the neighbouring cottage, off-street parking for one car and on-street parking directly outside the cottage. The cottage is an ideal retreat for couples, friends or a small family looking for a traditional cottage in the heart of some of England's most beautiful 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.
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.
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, including its grounds, is four 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 four 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.
One medium-sized dog, or two small dogs, are accepted, at a cost of £20 per booking per dog. Unfortunately, cats are not accepted.
For the comfort of future guests, we ask that dogs remain downstairs, stay off the furniture and that no trace of a dog remains after your departure.
Please note that, although the back garden of the cottage is enclosed, there is a right of access through the garden for the neighbours and the postman, therefore dogs should be kept under control at all times.

A small quantity of initial consumables is provided for your convenience (eg. tea, coffee, sugar, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, soap, washing powder, 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
The property has two floors, which could pose difficulty to guests with limited mobility, or carrying babies, in terms of their ability to quickly exit the house in the event of an emergency.
The smoke 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.

The Cotswolds are a range of hills in west-central England, sometimes called the "Heart of England". The name Cotswold means "sheep enclosure in rolling hillsides".
The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
Car: Sutton-under-Brailes is easily accessed by car, being located within fifteen miles of the M40 and close to the A429 (Fosse Way) and the A44, which are two of the main roads through the North Cotswolds.
Train: The nearest railway station to Sutton-under-Brailes is Moreton-in-Marsh (approximately eight miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of approximately 90 minutes.
