April Cottage is a period cottage with three homely bedrooms for six guests, in Mickleton, Gloucestershire.

Tucked away down a quiet street in Mickleton is this beautiful, period property, April Cottage. It is the perfect getaway for a family or group of friends alike to spend a relaxing holiday in the beautiful countryside. The stunning property is be is believed to date back approximately three hundred years and combines a mixture of traditional timber frame and Cotswold stone building styles.

On arrival park up on the off-road parking space, before entering into the sitting room that exudes traditional character with oak beams and frames and exposed Cotswold stone walls, where you can relax of the inviting seating whilst watching a film on the Smart TV, as you are kept warm and toasty by the woodburning stove and underfloor heating. Moving through the property on the beautiful flagstone flooring you will come to the kitchen/dining room, where you can cook delicious meals using the contemporary appliances as you retreat to the beautiful dining table to indulge in your meals and toast to an exciting holiday that lies ahead. Adjacent to the kitchen/diner sits a handy utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer as well as a cloakroom with a basin and WC.

Relatively steep stairs wind up to the first-floor, where you will find three lovely bedrooms all beautifully set in the eaves of the cottage; there is a king-size bedroom with an en-suite walk-in shower basin and WC, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, all with storage space. In the morning, enjoy a long soak amongst the bubbles in the bath or have an invigorating rinse in the power shower, before moving downstairs to make you and your guests a steaming mug of coffee using the Nespresso coffee machine, to be enjoyed in the enclosed garden at the front of the property, to delight in the peaceful views down the lane towards the church, where you can also make use of the charcoal barbecue during the warmer months. The cottage is located on a quiet lane, close to the beautiful local church, Church of St Lawrence.

The location is ideal for exploring some of England's finest countryside, towns and villages, such as Chipping Campden where you can start your day with a delicious breakfast at Campden Coffee Co before heading over to Dover's Hill to enjoy the stunning views over the Vale of Evesham where you can join the Cotswold Way, which is a 100-mile walking trail, taking you through picturesque villages, breath-taking countryside and famous ancient sites and finish off your day with a heart-warming meal at The Swan in Broadway ? the second stop on Cotswold Way! Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford-upon-Avon, is within easy access, and is a well-known tourist destination, where you can visit an array of attractions including Magic Alley, Stratford Butterfly Farm and The MAD Museum, and finish off with a lovely dinner at one of the many restaurants in Stratford-upon-Avon. For a wonderful holiday that all the family will cherish, stay at April Cottage. Note: Two dogs welcome at an additional charge of £20:00 each.

Cancelled with less than 24 hours notice
Myself and my family were due to stay here for a family wedding last weekend. The holiday company left me a message to say the owners had cancelled due to no hot water. I have since read a review on Character Cottages website praising the owner for getting an emergency plumber at such short notice. There was no offer of alternative accommodation or apology from the owners. We had nowhere else to stay, were not offered an alternative or asked if we would like an alternative to be found. I am absolutely disgusted with this service. I was very suspicious when I contacted Sykes to be told that the booking reference was linked to another surname but then they backtracked and denied this. We were given a pitiful amount of compensation that doesn?t come close to making up for the additional costs incurred and huge disappointment that an opportunity to spend a weekend together was ruined. I would not recommend this cottage and will never use either Sykes/Character Cottages again.
