About the property

Welcome to Glebe House, brought to you exclusively by Character Cottages, local specialists in stylish Cotswold holiday rentals.



Please click More Details to read about the House Rules.

Glebe House is a beautiful country house, which sits in lovely grounds on the side of a hill, with fabulous views of the surrounding North Cotswolds countryside. This large Cotswold stone house is located on the edge of the popular and picturesque village of Naunton, which is set well away from busy roads and benefits from a good village pub, a golf course and many beautiful walks straight from the doorstep. The house also has views across to Grange Hill Farm, home of the the well known National Hunt trainer, Nigel Twiston-Davies, whose horses can be seen out in training most days. The well known market towns of Stow-on-the-Wold and Bourton-on-the-Water are both within six miles, with their wide range of pubs, shops and restaurants. Naunton is also within easy reach of many tourist destinations, including Oxford, Blenheim Palace and Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.

This grand house is laid out over three floors, with lovely views from all the principal rooms, and a wealth of character, including exposed Cotswold stone walls, oak floors and real fires in the drawing room, library and sitting room. The character of the house is complemented by its modern facilities, including wireless internet access, two flatscreen TVs and a stunning, recently installed kitchen.

Glebe House sleeps a maximum of 10+2 people in five bedrooms, with the +2 on a sofa bed in the snug. There are three ensuite bathrooms, a family bathroom and two cloakrooms. The property is surrounded by beautiful gardens and there is parking space on the driveway for at least six cars. Glebe House is perfect for a gathering of friends or families, seeking a relaxing break in a stunning property, with spectacular views of the surrounding Cotswold countryside.

House Rules

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

A security deposit of £350 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, including its grounds, is 12 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 12 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 two additional infants.


Regrettably, pets are not accepted.

Bed linen and towels

Bed linen and towels are provided for guests.

Child friendly facilities

Children are permitted, subject to the Health & Safety notice below. Please note that guests with infants will need to bring their own travel cots and high chairs, as required.

Initial consumables

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 is laid out over three floors, 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 owner wants to specifically highlight to potential guests that all young children within a party must be supervised at all times, as the house has many steps inside and the landscaped gardens have several hidden drops, steep flagstone steps, and some steep concrete steps down to the lower garden areas. This notice serves as a formal disclaimer and, by booking this property, you agree that the property owner cannot be held responsible for any accidents, trips or falls within either the house or its grounds.

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.

As noted above, the garden is terraced and could be unsuitable for guests with limited mobility.


No smoking is permitted throughout the property.

Hen, Stag and other same sex groups

Unfortunately, Hen, Stag and other same sex groups are not allowed at Glebe House. Please note that same sex family groups are welcome.


CCTV cameras are installed on outside of the property, for security purposes.


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.

Wonderful house and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful weekend with my extended family. Visited Stow on the Wold and Bourton on the Water which were both only a short distance away. The house is ideal for a large gathering and would highly recommend. Would now like to live there!

Other Activities:

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: Naunton is easily accessed by car, being located approximately four miles away from the A429 (Fosse Way) and approximately six miles away from the A40, which are two of the main roads running through the North Cotswolds.

Train: The nearest railway station to Naunton is Kingham (approximately 10 miles away), which has regular, direct services to London Paddington, with a typical journey time of less than 90 minutes.

Plane: Birmingham International Airport: 50 miles, approximately 70 minute drive; Heathrow International Airport: 78 miles, approximately 100 minute drive; Bristol International Airport: 60 miles, approximately 80 minute drive.
