Self catering cottages for groups of up to 34 people

Welcome to Upper Court – A Georgian manor built in 1760, with 15 acres of grounds, including a private lake, swimming pool, tennis courts, children’s play ground and beautiful gardens.

Four award winning, self-catering cottages are available which accommodate groups of up to 44 (including the Manor House bedrooms) for weddings, anniversaries, hen parties, family reunions and birthdays or team building activities.

The 5 bed and breakfast rooms in the manor house and the Attic flat sleep up to 13 guests. Breakfast is always available in the Manor dining room, but is optional.

The holiday cottages in the Cotswolds are the perfect place for weddings or to entertain friends and clients, enjoy a family reunion or celebrate a hen party. Cheltenham race course is only 7 miles away and so Upper Court is ideal for racing and the many festivals held in Cheltenham and surrounding areas.

The perfect retreat for a summer holiday, a family Cotswold Christmas or a romantic weekend hide-away.

  • We had a lovely multigenerational stay in three of the cottages. Children really enjoyed the pool, the tennis courts, play area, boating and the general freedom to explore the grounds. We all enjoyed the pottery workshop and learning how to use a wheel and the evening at the fire pit was a big hit for everyone. Beautiful surroundings and the dining tables and sitting areas were easily big enough for 16.

  • We first booked all the cottages at Upper Court in 2018 for a large family celebration. We enjoyed it so much we rebooked for another birthday celebration in August 2021. After considerable anxiety about the intervening Covid issues, our holiday took place! As a group of 24 people, with ages ranging from 7yrs to 80yrs, we all had an excellent time. All the accommodation was very comfortable and there were only one or two minor issues which we reported and hopefully will be dealt with. All the staff and the owners we met were very friendly and helpful and we used the swimming pool and games facilities every day. Best of all though were the beautiful gardens and surrounding grounds, providing a really peaceful haven ! We had a wonderful holiday and would go again if the opportunity arises.

  • Absolutely gorgeous grounds and the courtyard cottage we stayed in was well equipped. They put 4 single beds on the top floor for the children which worked a treat. Lots of activities to choose from on site and nearby but the highlight was the pool, although we were not lucky enough to have great weather the heated/ covered pool made this a suitable daily activity. Lovely and accommodating owners with no ask being to great. We will definitely be visiting again.

  • Beautiful location and grounds. Hosts extremely helpful. Excellent play facilities for children. We had a wonderful time. Thank you.
  • We absolutely loved the location of Dovecote. It's like a secret garden. Geese and goslings wandering past, ducks too. We were also kept entertained with ping pong and had a dip in the pool. The cottage itself has everything you need and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. A beautiful place in a beautiful area.

  • Everything about this place was wonderful. From the romanticism of a three storey cottage with a four posters bed and HUGE bath you can sink into and stretch out in, to the picturesque lakeside setting and on site facilities. The fact that we could take our dog and stay in such a lovely place was a HUGE bonus. Petra was so friendly and helpful, and there are so many beautiful walks right on your doorstep. I will be recommending to everybody who asks!
