Tredington Mill Puddle Cottage

In this peaceful retreat, French windows open onto a courtyard garden with a table and chairs - the perfect spot to catch the sun and enjoy an evening drink with an unspoilt view of the river and its island, teeming with wildlife just a few feet away. The mill stream means that Puddle Cottage is not suitable for unsupervised children, but well behaved pets are welcome.

The centrally heated, non smoking accommodation retains many original features including exposed beams. It is on three floors. There is a fully fitted kitchen (electric hob and oven), dining area seating four, and lounge space with a widescreen TV on the ground floor.

We are very happy to help with any enquiries and local information, and will always respect your privacy. In addition to basics, you will find a welcome hospitality gift including fruit and flowers.

Puddle Cottage is available for long and short stays. Changeover is on Fridays for weekly and weekend breaks. Mid-week breaks are Monday to Friday. Please do ask if you have any special dates that need accommodating. When possible we are happy to be flexible.

Pool View

This historic mill is in a spectacularly beautiful part of the River Stour and is built over the mill stream which forms a charming island. There's a weir, a huge weeping willow, and visiting wildlife that ranges from swans and kingfishers to a heron and even the occasional otter. It's all in the conservation area of Tredington, a peaceful Warwickshire village surrounded by quiet countryside and Cotswold Hill walks. There is a mediaeval church filled with reminders of centuries of history, remarkable period architecture, a children's playground, and a pub with a garden and comprehensive food menu.

Tredington is a convenient base for exploring the towns and villages of the north Cotswolds, nestling between Shakespeare's birthplace and many of the Cotswolds most popular attractions. This part of England is famed for its beautiful landscape and pretty stone-walled villages, many of which have historic churches and pubs selling local beers (three local breweries!).

There are ten National Trust Properties within 20 miles: Hidcote, Snowshill Manor ... There are many independent houses, gardens, and attractions which are privately owned and open to the public: Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, Batsford Arboretum, Stanway House with the tallest gravity-fed fountain in the world. . .

The historic market town of Shipston-on-Stour is two miles away for restaurants, take-aways, pubs, supermarkets, banks, post office, chemist, a leisure centre, and a wide variety of small shops. There are also two delicatessens, an independent wine merchant, a fresh fish shop, butchers, and bakers.

Visitors can choose between world-class theatrical performances in Stratford-on-Avon, antique shopping in Stow-on-the-Wold, arts and crafts in Chipping Campden, and the many visitor attractions of Bourton-on-the-Water. Or just go for a walk. The countryside is steeped in history, from Neolithic sites like the Rollright Stones, to places rich in the history of the English Civil War. Edge Hill, site of the famous battle, is not far away - and Tredington too can show its own turbulent past. The front door of the church still has musket-balls lodged in it from a disagreement between Roundheads and Royalists!

There are many local art attractions - from the three little art galleries in Shipston-on-Stour just a couple of miles away, to the impressive Compton Verney Art Gallery. There are many local potteries - Whichford Pottery is a Must.

Arriving on a Friday night you might like to start your stay with a champagne happy-hour at The George or The Old Mill in Shipston-on-Stour, both of which serve food. For award winning pubs try The Peacock in Oxhill, The Ebrington Arms in Ebrington, The Howard Arms in Ilmington, or The Horse and Groom in Bourton-on-the-Hill.

If you enjoy cooking there are many outlets nearby for locally produced food from a wonderful nearby farm shop at Talton Mill, to foodie heaven at Daylesford Organic Shop. Many local towns have regular Farmers' Markets.



Newly restored to combine traditional charm with up-to-date comfort. Pool View retains many original features - exposed beams, steep staircases, and large mill windows that make the most of the exceptional views.

We are happy to help with enquiries or local information, and welcome Pool View residents to enjoy our garden, a river island that splits the River Stour to feed the mill stream. It has a weir and a huge weeping willow, and other visitors can include anything from swans and kingfishers to a heron, and even the occasional otter. Children are welcome, but they do need to be supervised!

The non-smoking, no-pets accommodation is on two floors. The living room, fully fitted kitchen/dining room, and WC are on the first floor. Upstairs there are one double and one twin/double bedroom. The bathroom has a shower over the bath. In addition to basics, you will find a welcome hospitality gift including fruit and flowers.

Pool View is available for long and short stays. Changeover is on Fridays for weekly and weekend breaks. Mid-week breaks are Monday to Friday. Please do ask if you have any special dates that need accommodating. When possible we are happy to be flexible.
