Windfall Cottage

Beckford

Windfall Cottage 1

This architectually designed cottage will seduce you with its unfussy contemporary style, all wrapped up in a modern take on a medieval inspired construction comprising an immense green oak aisle frame and fronted with an oversize porch.

Just the place to kick of your wellies/heels! Before putting the kettle on the Aga or settling in front of the wood burning stove with a glass of wine.

Windfall’s luxurious blend of old and new with sumptuous free standing baths and even its own baby suite, fully equipped for the youngest guest, is situated in its own private gardens within the grounds of our grade II listed 16th century house on the edge of the village of Beckford, sitting under the leigh of the North Cotswolds largest outlier, Bredon Hill.

Enjoy uninterrupted views South towards the Cotswold escarpment over our adjoining orchard, home to our ducks and hens — they may even lay you a few fresh eggs to enjoy at breakfast.

Altogether Windfall Cottage is an idyllic and indulgent retreat that once found can be very hard to leave.

Bedrooms
  • Master Bedroom – Parents with babies or toddlers in tow will particularly like the king-size master bedroom with its vaulted ceiling set into the oak aisle frame, luxury en-suite bathroom with walk in wet room shower and romantic free standing bath for two and its very own adjoining “baby suite”.
  • 2 Double Suites – Windfall sleeps up to 6, in addition to the master bedroom you will find 2 more double suites each with their own luxurious bathroom facilities so families or groups of friends can all enjoy their own privacy.
Kitchen
    • Kitchen – The kitchen overlooks the back of the property, and is spacious with a table big enough to comfortably seat ten. Generously equipped, the facilities include single oven, full-size fridge/freezer with water and ice dispenser, Tassimo coffee machine, large 5-ring gas hob, plenty of crockery/cutlery/utensils, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, blender and juicer.
       
       
Living Space

Lovingly crafted using an age old aisle frame construction technique, comprising more than 12 tonnes of sustainably grown green oak, all set over a natural and locally quarried Cotswold stone plinth. The interior is a blend of high quality natural oak and limestone floors and contemporary luxuries in the form of under floor heating, decadent free-standing baths, powerful showers and a stunning bespoke oak kitchen with Aga.

With a separate lounge area to relax by the fire in the colder months, parents will be very impressed with the spacious childrens den located beyond the open plan kitchen through the separate utilities room. 

Dining Area
