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.

  • We feel so fortunate as an extended family group to have been able to enjoy an idyllic Christmas at Upper Court. Booked Courtyard Cottage and the Dovecote, and then Omicron arrived - but happily it didnt stop us, and we had a marvellous weekend. Festoons of festive lights as we drove up to the Cottage, and a beautifully decorated, very clean and welcoming space, with a dining room where we could all sit down and enjoy home-cooked Christmas meals. Even in damp weather, we appreciated the beauty of the grounds, and our tractor-obsessed toddler loved the play equipment provided - the adults were able to play table tennis under the shelter too! Everyone we encountered walking around was so friendly. Thank you, Upper Court.
  • We had a lovely time and we were well looked after. The rooms were great and perfect for our needs. We will definitely go back.

  • Absolutely loved everything about my hen do weekend spent at the beautiful Upper Court cottages. We were a group of 20 and occupied the Coach House, all cottages and the Manor House Flat for the duration of the weekend. The properties and grounds are all beautiful and immaculately kept. The surroundings are so peaceful and the cottages all have such quirky individual characters which makes everything super charming. The Coach House provided ample entertaining space and this is where we spent the majority of our time as a group. From start to finish, the level of customer service was faultless. Emily, Martina and the team were fantastic at answering our queries in a timely manner, no matter how big or small. The hen do weekend was postponed by over a year thanks to Covid and there was always the worry that it wouldn't end up being as good as originally planned. However, everything more than exceeded expectations. The cottages were super well equipped and the possibilities for activities were endless. Not only was there so much on site to do (boating on the lake, croquet on the lawn, dip in the pool, pottery at Kite Studios - Auriol and her son Callum made this a real treat for us!) but they also allowed us to accommodate delivery of breakfast and afternoon tea spreads and an animal encounter experience in the grounds. Upper Court is truly beautiful and we would recommend to anyone for a special occasion, big or small or just for a trip away. My hens and I have been talking about it ever since and we hope to be back!! Thank you so much to all of you at Upper Court for making it the most memorable experience! Xx

  • 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.

  • 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!
