Stroll into Southrop village and visit the award winning Swan Inn. Try out the Thyme Cookery school. Explore the Cotswolds.

Beautifully renovated, grand and slightly quirky

A stay at The Courtyard is a special country experience. Super stylish cottages nestle around the courtyard designed by Bunny Guinness.  Take over the whole courtyard for 14 guests and enjoy a super stylish setting to relax and entertain in and plenty of privacy and space to spread out in the cottages.

And a good night’s sleep awaits wth Vi-Spring mattresses, goose down quilts and the finest Egyptian cotton.

The Tallet is the biggest for eight with space for 14 to relax and dine together in sophisticated comfort.  There are three gorgeous smaller cottages in The Courtyard, each sleeping two and named after their past – The Dairy and the Ox House East and West.

With the River Leach’s crystal clear waters, wild brown trout and stunning water meadows, there’s a chance to see swans, kingfishers or maybe the occasional water vole. And a real treat is a short stroll away at The Swan at Southrop inn – awarded The Good Pub Guide Restaurant of the Year 2010 with impeccable service and fantastic food in stylish surroundings.

Living Spaces

The Courtyard offers the ultimate in country luxury and a private world all of your own. There are four extremely stylish and comfortable cottages, converted from the barns of Southrop Manor. You are welcome to stay in the Tallet or book one of the smaller cottages too.  Or book the whole courtyard for fourteen.

You can all get together in the Tallet to relax and dine in the amazing kitchen and still have your own private living space in each cottage.

The Tallet has a huge living space leading out onto the Bunny Guinness courtyard.  A wonderful entertaining space for up to fourteen to get-together in luxurious comfort.

Chop and chat away in the award winning kitchen – a perfect space for relaxed, entertaining. For a special occasion, we can arrange for a fantastic chef to spoil you!
