The Coppice holiday home details

With exposed wooden beams, an Inglenook fireplace and elm floors in some of the rooms, The Coppice has been extended and renovated over the years to create a delightful holiday property. With its elegant furniture, the drawing room wouldn’t look out of place in a period drama, yet there are lovely modern touches too, such as the light and airy conservatory looking out onto the mature gardens or the well-equipped kitchen with its Nespresso machine and Loewe sound unit.

The Coppice is set at the foot of Bredon Hill, which was immortalised in the poet A E Housman’s ‘A Shropshire Lad’. Bredon is one of the outlying hills of the Cotswolds, and the opportunities for walking, mountain biking and horse riding are endless. You can explore for hours without coming across a road! Guests are welcome to bring their own horses if they wish, subject to arrangement.

With mature gardens and a paddock beyond, you could spend many a happy hour just looking out on the views from the conservatory, then perhaps wander out to The Star Inn is nearby Ashton under Hill for some great pub food. If you want to stroll further afield, the villages of Conderton and Elmley Castle also have welcoming pubs, so wherever your walk or adventure takes you, you’ll be able to quench the thirst in a lovely country inn.

Attractions and nearby amenities

  • As you’re staying right beneath it, a walk up Bredon Hill is a must while you’re here. From the summit you can see the Malvern Hills, the Cotswolds and the Welsh Hills, not to mention five counties. Keep your eyes peeled for fallow, munkjac, roe deer, foxes, badgers and lots of bird life too. In the springtime, the woods are a riot of colour as the bluebells burst into flower.
  • Tourists used to come to Cheltenham to take the waters in the Regency period, hence the attractive Georgian architecture throughout the town. Yet this is twenty-first century destination too. There’s always plenty going on, with festivals for everything from science to classical music, and if you’re a horse racing fan then the racecourse is just to the north of the town centre. The Gold Cup is held every year around St Patrick’s Day.
  • The town of Broadway is one of the Cotswolds’ most picturesque attractions, with horse chestnuts swaying in the breeze, honey-coloured houses along the wide main street and the iconic Broadway Tower. There’s a local museum and art gallery here too.
  • Chipping Campden was a thriving wool town and you can still get a feel for the opulence and wealth of its former days. The architecture is beautiful, and you’ll find independent boutiques, a second-hand bookshop and plenty of delicatessens and coffee shops to explore.
  • Once the home of Katherine Parr, Henry VIII’s last queen, Sudeley Castle is a breathtaking destination with some special treasures, including a Van Dyck portrait. The gardens are a tourist attraction in their own right and change throughout the year.
  • Stanway House is a Jacobean manor house that still has a large collection of original furniture but is anything but a museum, as this is very much a lived-in property. Guests are welcome – and this really is the place to come if you’d like to see the UK’s tallest fountain – all 300 feet of it!
  • Snowshill Manor is a National Trust property with a difference. The reason people flock here is not the house or gardens, although both are lovely, but because of what you can find within the house itself. The owner gathered together an eccentric collection of just about anything that took his fancy, including Samurai warrior armour, and it is all still on display today.
