Cottage Details

The Coppice is a dog-friendly rural retreat with room for up to ten people. It is Grade II listed and is beautifully furnished in a traditional country style. It nestles at the foot of Bredon Hill in Worcestershire, from where you can enjoy views for miles across five counties.

Up to three well-behaved dogs are welcome, and there is ample off-road parking. Sorry, no smoking is allowed at the property.


Tastefully decorated and furnished in a country style, this property has exposed wooden beams and elm floors. It has been extended and renovated over the years. The living area has plenty of space for numerous guests to spread out, with its cosy drawing room and living rooms, both with open fires. The dining area is in the light and airy conservatory, with steps leading up to the kitchen.

The spacious kitchen with its island unit is well-equipped, with a Rangemaster electric cooker, microwave, large fridge, large freezer, Nespresso machine and dishwasher. A separate laundry room houses the washing machine and tumble dryer.

There are five bedrooms: four doubles (two on the ground floor) and a twin, all with homely touches and decorated to an excellent standard. There is a shower room on the ground floor, two bathrooms upstairs both with separate bath and shower, and a further wet room shower.

Free WiFi is available for guest use.


The quarter-acre garden is large and well-established, perfect for excited dogs on holiday. There is also a patio area with seating, where you can relax after a day of exploring the area. A Webber barbecue is available on request. The cottage also has a paddock and stables, and guests are welcome to bring their own horses, subject to arrangement.

Location and surrounding area

Set at the foot of Bredon Hill, one of the outlying hills of the Cotswolds, there are many opportunities for walking, horse riding and mountain biking.

The Georgian town of Cheltenham is nearby, where there are often festivals on, celebrating everything from classical music to science, and the racecourse is just out of the town centre with the Gold Cup held around St Patrick’s Day.

Broadway is a Cotswolds town also well worth a visit. It is known for its picturesque horse chestnut trees, honey-coloured houses and iconic Broadway Tower.

Other sights in the area include Sudeley Castle which was once the home of Henry VIII’s last queen, Catherine Parr, the Jacobean manor of Stanway House, and Snowshill Manor, a National Trust property with its owner’s eccentric collections on display.
