Well Furlong Cottage, a Luxury Cotswold Cottage

Charming Well Furlong Cottage is the ultimate Cotswolds destination for families seeking spoiling and luxurious self-catered accommodation with its own indoor swimming pool, astro pitch for tennis and football and a huge games room with pool table, table tennis and air hockey.

Located in the beautiful village of Little Comberton with its honey-coloured houses, a handsome church and rolling landscape, this dreamy Cotswold cottage with many period features is nestled in 80 acres of private land. Well Furlong Cottage is a fully modernised cottage complete with three large ensuite bedrooms, super kings or twins, offering flexibility for families or groups of friends. 

Well Furlong Cottage itself sleeps 6, with an additional 2 if you book out  the games room (twin beds) and accompanying bathroom exclusively for an additional fee, making it a very roomy and fun retreat for 8. (Details on booking page)

In a nearby field, you can also book Well Furlong Shepherds Retreat, which sleeps 2-4 and is a perfect place for grandparents to stay and have their own space. 

The Cottage is positioned at the bottom of Bredon Hill near Cheltenham – at the edge of the Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty – on the borders of Worcestershire and Gloucestershire. Few luxury Cotswold cottages are as beautifully appointed as Well Furlong with generously proportioned kitchen, reception rooms and three ensuite bedrooms. In addition, the charming cottage has its own large garden, facing out onto fields with stunning views of beautiful countryside.

A Luxury Cotswold Cottage in a picturesque Cotswolds village

If you’re comparing luxury cottages, then we think you’ll find our cottage’s specifications hard to beat. The delightful property has a Games Room and Spa complex with an indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi / hot tub & Astro Tennis Court. The Games Room, Pool and Spa are attached to the cottage, so you don’t have to go outside to access them and can come down in your dressing gowns to relax and swim. Should you need this is also a perfect place to work from with strong wifi and peaceful areas.

The Spa Complex and Games Room are shared between the guests in the Well Furlong Cottage and the owners of Well Furlong, who live adjacent. There are no other properties with access to the Spa, which makes it a Unique and Special offering. 

A Picturesque Cotswolds Village within Rolling Countryside

Well Furlong Cottage is situated at the end of a long quiet private drive, surrounded by beautiful rolling Cotswold countryside. The local pub is within walking distance (2 miles) in the charming next door village of Elmley Castle. The villages may have Roman origins and with many of the farmhouses and properties dating back to the 16th and 17th century, it is one of the most charming villages in south Worcestershire.

The Perfect Romantic Getaway

Explore the Cotswolds

Well Furlong Cottage is perfect as a relaxing base for the Cheltenham Literary and Cheltenham Race Festival. The Cotswolds has much to offer with fantastic walking with Bredon Hill on our doorstep and the Malvern Hills so close. For the more cultured, there are many National Trust Houses to visit including Croome Park and Hanbury Hall. Some of the local Cotswold visits to visit include Broadway, Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water and Burford. Bleinheim Palace is approximately a 40 minute drive away.

If you give us details about your group and / or family, we will cater your stay towards you and make every effort to provide extras such as toys, games,  baby equipment etc to help you bring less and enjoy your stay more. We are happy to help you organise babysitters, spa treatments etc.

All bedrooms can either be used with twin beds or Super King. All sheets are 300 thread 100% cotton.

As per the house rules, one well behaved dog in the uncarpeted areas per party. Dependent on the make up of the party, we may on occasions allow a 2nd dog but this needs to be approved in writing before you book the property.

This is the perfect place to come and cycle – mountain or racing bikes and we have a secure lock up to keep your bikes.

Finally, although our set up offers something similar to a boutique hotel offering – we are not a hotel and the cottage is part of our home and should be treated as such, we do the cleaning and changeovers ourselves and expect you to leave the cottage as you found it.

If you are looking for more of a spoiling hotel type stay and would rather have other people clear up after yourselves then we can recommend a lovely hotel called Dormy House (, just down the road in Broadway.

The Spa

The Spa is attached to Well Furlong Cottage, so you don’t have to go outside to access it and can come down in your dressing gowns to relax and swim. It is specifically for your use as guests in the cottage and for our family only, there are no other properties with access to the Spa, which makes it such a unique luxury stay!
As the host family have access to these facilities every day, you will find that although we do use the pool to swim, that you as the cottage guests will spend much more time enjoying the facilities and we will leave you to enjoy exclusive time with your family and friends in this wonderful spa setting.

The Spa has an Indoor Swimming Pool heated at 29 degrees and Jacuzzi with plenty of luxurious soft seating to relax and chill with a glass of wine. Because this is exclusive to your party staying in the cottage, you can use the Spa when you like, first thing if the kids are up or after supper for a romantic dip.

A small reminder that Well Furlong Cottage Spa and Tennis Court is exclusively for the Cottage guests with parties of up to 6-8 to enjoy and relax. If you would like to host additional families and friends, then Soho Farm House, which is set up as a Country Club to do just this, is only 40 minutes away.
