Upper Court offers this wonderful historic cottage for 6+2 guests, on the edge of the Cotswolds in the small village of Kemerton.

Pass under the impressive high courtyard archway and stand in awe at the beautiful cottage in front of you. Inside you can discover a drawing room with beamed ceiling and antique pine fireplace with iron stove. The cerise sofas offer a splash of colour to this spacious yet cosy room. There is a separate dining room with refectory table and from here a door leads outside to your own private seating area - perfect for your morning cuppa or summer BBQ lunch. The kitchen comes with all essential items including a washing machine and dishwasher. 

Up on the first floor you can find 2 bedrooms, the first has zip and link beds that can be either a double or twins, whilst the second has a double bed. There are 2 bathrooms on this floor, one with a shower cubicle, bath and loo and the other with a shower and loo. 

Climb the steps to the second floor, which once a hayloft, is now a stunning family room with a double bed and 2 single beds. The double bed can be split into single beds if required, offering a great children's bedroom if 2 families are holidaying together. 

On site there is plenty to enjoy including a covered swimming pool, tennis court and children's play area. Alternatively take to the lake and row a boat for a while, before enjoying a picnic in the beautiful grounds. Treat yourself with a beauty treatment or massage or try your hand at pottery!
