Sapperton, Gloucestershire | Cotswolds | Sleeps 6 | Dog Friendly
INTRODUCTIONDeep within the heart of the Bathurst Estate (or Cirencester Park, as it’s known locally one of Gloucestershire’s most historic privately owned estates covering about 16,000 acres of the County and family seat of The Earls & Countesses Bathurst since 1695, there lies a little gem.
Apsley Cottage is a beautiful Cotswold Stone ‘Arts & Crafts’ period building dating back to 1908, named after The 1st Baron Apsley (The 2nd Earl Bathurst) and originally designed by Lilias, Countess Bathurst, the wife of The 7th Earl and it nestles in the heart of the village of Sapperton, an area that remains very much part of the family concern itself.
Completely renovated in 2013 and launched in May, this gorgeous little 3 bedroom house has the feel of a real home from the moment you step through the door into the fabulous interior.

THE RED ROOM

The garden surrounds the cottage and the large stone ‘sunken’ terrace, with ample lighting, is accessed via double doors from the kitchen/living area – or the kitchen – or the front door! It comes complete with Cotswold Stone built-in barbecue, a large table with chairs, as well as a wooden garden bench that overlooks the garden and village countryside. It faces almost South and so enjoys unbroken sunshine nearly all day. Magical! The garden is well fenced, or has a solid Cotswold stone wall to the front – this means that, with the gates closed, Apsley Cottage enjoys a complete boundary.
There is ample off road parking for up to three cars – or even four!
Apsley Cottage Guest Book
It’s only natural that we’re going to ‘wax lyrical’ about how lovely the cottages are and of course we’re going to be positive, because we want you to fall in love with them! But there is nothing more powerful than the views of others, and so we thought you’d like to see what past visitors have said about their stay..
Over to our lovely guests...
Tom & Family - (January 2018)
A gorgeous cottage with everything we could wish for! Thank you for making us so welcome. The Bell Inn is wonderful, as is The Daneway Inn and the Jolly Nice very convenient! Beautiful bed sheets - so comfortable! Will recommend to all our friends! Thank you!
Natalie & Friends - Cheshire - (December 2017/January 2018)
Yet another fantastic stay at Apsley Cottage. Such a home from home feel with great surroundings. Shower is a great addition! Look forward to coming again! Thank you x
The Sheppard Family - Birmingham - (October 2017)
Lovely cottage, great little location, very pretty. Perfect cottage for the family - warm and clean. Plenty of space, local pub The Bell within walking distance but take a torch if dark! Thanks for having us! Forgot to say thanks for the lovely treats! x
Anthony, Sue & Finn - Altrincham - (October 2017)
The cottage has been perfect for us, as has the location. We have appreciated all the thought that has clearly gone in to renovating the cottage and to making it available for holidaymakers. If you ever decide to put it on the market - give me a call!!
Peter-John, Jolien, Silke en Julie - Netherlands - (September 2017)
This was the third time we stayed in your lovely cottage where everything is provided for! We really love the Cotswolds with its outstanding beauty and fun things to do for the children (like the Cotswolds Farm park). We hope to come back soon!
Jono, Vanessa, Anabelle, Phil & Sarah - St. Neots & Grand Cayman - (August 2017)
Lovely cottage and great location. We really needed more time to explore everything! A memorable vacation! Thank you! We also appreciated the welcome basket of treats.
Martin, Andrea and Family - Germany - (August 2017)
We had a nice stay here in this cosy cottage and luck with the weather. Our dogs liked it too.
The Edge Family - Twickenham - (August 2017)
Despite the weather, we've thoroughly enjoyed our week at this fabulous cottage. Every detail is spot on and provides for a very comfortable and relaxing stay. We've explored the Slad valley, Tetbury, Westonbirt Arboretum and loved being so close to Cirencester. Our dog thinks it's been a home away from home, especially with his own bed provided (in fact, far more comfortable than his one at home!) It has been a total treat here - thank you! P.S. The polo is a must if you get the chance.
Joanna, Penelope, Saskia & Mila - California - (July 2017)
A wonderful cottage for a family vacation.
Chris & Sam - Nottingham - (June/July 2017)
What a fabulous week - amazing weather, super cottage, sun all day in the garden, great walks, idyllic pubs. Fantastic! xxx
Fiona, Carl, Thomas & Charlie - London - (May 2017)
Thank you for a lovely stay in Apsley Cottage. The boys enjoyed playing in the garden and we had a very good rest. The cottage is very well equipped and we would definitely recommend it.
The Van der Meers - Netherlands - (April 2017)
We came from the airport and rented a car. Driving on the left side for the first time was both exciting and fun. We came into the lovely county and the 'Bathurst area' is just awesome. This lovely cottage felt like a home to me, Pien and the kids.
We enjoyed what the house had to offer. A fireplace, great kitchen, lovely couch and chairs to chill (like the kids like to say) and of course the bath and beautiful garden.
We stayed for a week and went to Cirencester, enjoyed Warwick Castle, got to see Oxford, did a beautiful tour in Bath with the Roman Bath house and enjoyed walking here in the forest.
A wonderful stay at a wonderful place and we met some wonderful people living in Sapperton. We will come back some day for sure!
Natalie, Claire, Daniel, John (Betty & Fern, the Pointer sisters) - Cheshire - (December 2016/January 2017)
Our fourth visit to Apsley Cottage, never fails to provide a fantastic base for us to celebrate New Year. Fantastic facilities and great garden + walks for the dogs. Hopefully be returning again soon. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
Chattle Family - Bucks - (October 2016)
Lovely cottage, lovely quiet setting - really enjoyed our week. Many thanks
The Ward Family - London/Kemble - (September/October 2016)
We have felt very at home at Apsley Cottage. We have stayed here on and off for 6 weeks and felt that the cottage was a perfect start to our new life in the country. Thanks for looking after us so well.
We loved the pub (The Bell - 5 mins walk), fab local walks, good coffee at Jolly Nice, friendly neighbours and postman!
Amazing sunsets outside the front door as well. Thank you!
The Gulliford Family - Newcastle upon Tyne - (August 2016)
We have had a lovely time in Apsley Cottage. I slept in the little pink room with the pull out bed. Also, I loved playing with doggie and bear although Bear did have a few accidents :( His leg fell off! So me and my grandma went to boots and bought him a bandage and wrapped it up :)
The Bianco Family - Italy - (August 2016)
We are very grateful for the lovely time we have spent in this amazing house! We have enjoyed the comforts of this home and we hope we'll come back next year! Thank you :)
Var, Jennifer, Vivie & Ivo - Florida, USA - (June/July 2016)
Vivie: This is our third stay at Apsley Cottage and we LOVE it! I like the small bedroom with the trundle bed and the big garden. But my favourite part by far is playing with the stuffed animals, Doggie & Bear.
Ivo: APSLEY COTTAGE IS AWESOME!!! I like Bear and Doggie. I made a shadow puppet show featuring puppets of them. They also created a band with our stuffed animals; Julius, Gaspard, Bunny, Turtley, Little sheepy, Little sheepy 1 & Totoro. It is called 'The Friendly Octet'
The Loader Family - New Zealand - (June 2016)
We have loved our time in this gorgeous cottage - so very peaceful and charming, thank you! Best tip - use the books on the bookshelf to help you navigate your way around the best of the Cotswolds and also divert off the well-worn tracks to enjoy 'the real' Cotswolds. 'The Bell' was very welcome after a day of touring. Hope to come back one day.
The Clarke Cowells - Kent - (April 2016)
We enjoyed a lovely few days of the Easter holiday here! A wonderful cottage equipped with everything you need. The decor made us feel really at home adding warmth and comfort. Great location to explore the beautiful Cotswolds. Would definitely recommend and we'll be back - Thank you xx
The Real Housewives of Warwickshire - (February 2016)
Booked this beautiful cottage for a special celebration for the 'Queen of Sheba' Claudia.

Hope to return in November for more of the same in this fabulous cottage! xx

Lauren, JoAnn, Ethan & Winston (Golden Retriever) – London/Birmingham/Alabama – (March 2015)
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were blessed with the warmest day of 2015 and glorious sun! It really felt as though we were staying in a close family or friends home rather than a holiday cottage. The attention to detail and extra comforts were noticed and very much appreciated. My son (19 months) and dog were in heaven in the garden, and very secure. We were beyond impressed with Apsley Cottage as well as the area and would very much like to return for an extended stay in the future. Thank you for opening your doors, it is such a gem! We are so pleased we discovered it!!

Apsley is a delightful cottage, cosy and welcoming. The setting has been perfect with beautiful walks close by. Bentley is heading home quite exhausted. A lovely stay – thank you!
Patti & Richard Winter – Canada – (August to October 2014)
“The proof is in the putting”. We are returning in 2015 for another eleven week stay. If one does not appreciate Apsley Cottage, then one is a sad person. Ginny, Lady Bathurst’s PA is a constant help. Lady B even puts up with ‘colonials’, plus she is a charming person. The off street parking is amazing! The Cottage and the gardens speak for themselves! The ornamental grass garden is a plus!
Var, Jennifer, Ivo & Vivie Thelin – Florida, USA – (June 2014)
We’ve had a wonderful time here! We particularly liked the alcove bedroom. This cottage has a very nice yard!
Martin, Jane, Charlotte, Sam, Elizabeth & Amber the Dog – Suffolk – (May 2014)

Nigel & Deborah Duce and Millie & Minnie the dogs – Essex – (May 2014)

Tim & Emma Phipps – Wales – (March 2014)

What a wonderful cottage! Possibly the best we have stayed at. The decor is tastefully done and to a high standard. Very cosy! A lovely touch was the welcome hamper full of local produce (the doggie’s loved the treats)! Luckily we were blessed with wonderful weather which meant we could enjoy the beautiful countryside. A return trip is definitely on the cards, thank you to Lady Bathurst and her team.
Malcolm, Jill & Susanna Gould – London (November 2013)
A delightful cottage in the most beautiful location. Welcoming and thoughtfully decorated to the point that one feels completely at home! The food hamper and bath bombs much enjoyed. We do hope to come again!
Maddalena & Tim, David & Elena, Paolo & Gina – London & Italy (November 2013)
What an AMAZING place! We cooked, we walked, & we enjoyed it all! So many details are right in this amazing cottage – champagne glasses to a blender. We enjoyed everything and were pleased to show our Italian friends what the English countryside is like – and how to live like a King! Thanks so much! x
John & Daisy, Milly & Daniel McAndrew – London (November 2013)
What a wonderful weekend – despite grotty weather on Saturday!

Anita Jackson & Family (October 2013)
Love the cottage, especially the little extra touches! Wonderful location too, didn’t want to leave! Wish we had more time at Apsley Cottage – thank you! By the way ‘Mr Apsley Bear’ was a huge hit with two little girls!! And the ‘Welcome’ food hamper was yummy! We’ll be back at the first chance!
Fenella & Jeremy – and Purdey (October 2013)
Just wonderful! A home from home.
Stuart & Valerie Perry – and Lucy The Labrador (September 2013)
Our second visit this year. Yet again the cottage lived up to all our expectations. We were delighted to visit some stunning attractions locally. We would especially recommend Crickley Hill Country Park, amazing views towards the Severn, and Wales. This was our first experience of watching polo and we were so pleased we took the opportunity given to us. Look forward to a return visit again sometime in the future.
The Turner Family (September 2013)
We returned to the Cotswolds having lived and worked in the area from 1974-1984. So many changes and memories! Apsley Cottage is a delightful conversion to modern and considered living in the heart of a beautiful area of England. Every possible touch given for the visitor’s comfort. Thank you for providing this all too brief opportunity to enjoy Cotswold Life in style.
Ian & Anne Miles, London (September 2013)
The house name should be changed to ‘Tranquility’ Cottage. Perfect for relaxing & renewing your energies. Perfect location for all the local amenities lovely Cirencester has to offer. A great deal of thought has gone into the planning of the cottage and for the comfort of it’s guests. Thank you. A & I x
The O’Keefe Family, Alfie & Tilly too. London SW18 (September 2013)
What a lovely week we all enjoyed in this charming cottage. Lots of walks for Alf & Tilly – fun for the kids. Great to be able to explore and stroll to The Bell too. Perfect family time.
Chris & Christine Edwards, Iraq; and Stuart & Sherry Edwards, Richmond, Virginia USA (September 2013)
Wonderful view at each window, sitting on the patio was a delight. The location let us visit everywhere in The Cotswolds AND London. The bedroom linens are luxurious. Thank you for all the special touches.
Ken, Dawn, Liberty, Seren & Pickle pup – Rotherfield, East Sussex (August 2013)

Mark, Sally, Chris and Rachel Aston and Jess – Teddington, Middlesex (August 2013)
What a wonderful cottage! We all had a brilliant time. The area has so much to offer, many places to walk and explore and several excellent pubs.

We hope to come back again.
Philippa, Gavin & Rufus (the springer spaniel) Taylor – West Kirby, Wirral (August 2013)
This has to be the best cottage we’ve stayed in. Thank you so much for thinking of everything. It’s been a true pleasure all week, even the sun shone brightly! We recommend ‘The Bell’ for a drink or a meal – the coconut and chilli mussels are fantastic! For those who love getting away from it all and enjoy leisurely walks in the countryside we’d recommend you find ‘Cotswold Pub Walks’ by Colin Handy on the bookshelf! In particular walk 4, 5 and 20! This has been our first trip to The Cotswolds and we’ll definitely be back. Many thanks.
Camilla Sugden – Kuala Lumpur (July 2013)
A lovely visit – feet dragging as I head back to Kuala Lumpur. Chudleigh, my sister’s cocker thought the section under the barbecue was a specially built dog kennel. Many thanks for all the hospitality and look forward to the next visit.
Maria, Richard, Laura, Mark, Sarah, Richard II & Adam Kowenicki – Guernsey (July 2013)
Perfect accommodation in a perfect location. These were some of the best days. If we visit the area again, Apsley Cottage will be the first place we look for. Many thanks.
John, Pat, Chris, Victoria & Harry Rusz – Gerrards Cross, Buckinghamshire (July 2013)
I’m in heaven! What a wonderful rental cottage, a real home from home, everything and more one could want. From the warm and wonderful welcome from Ginny to the beautiful refurbishment of the cottage to the supply of every requirement you could possibly need. Jugs of fresh flowers everywhere, a dog basket fit for a king (Bramble, our Cocker spaniel puppy loved it!). The attention to detail was exemplary. The Countess and her team can be very proud of the project that they have delivered and we hope to return soon or visit one of the other cottages on the Bathurst Estate. Thank you and see you & Mr Apsley soon!
Di & Andrew McGavin – Sapperton (June 2013)
Simply a wonderful time, thank you. We have really enjoyed our stay at Apsley Cottage. Lovely cottage and location. We were made to feel very welcome throughout our stay and we would love to come again – highly recommended.
Valerie, Stuart & Lucy Perry – Cambridgeshire (May 2013)
Adorable Apsley Cottage has warmly welcomed us to The Cotswolds. We are hoping to return and explore many more of its charms.
The Bishop family – Windsor, Berkshire (May 2013)
Beyond a doubt, one of the loveliest and most welcoming cottages that we have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in a lot!) From the warm welcome on arrival, the basket of delicious local goodies, the cosiness of the rooms to the complete attention to detail that cannot but make any family feel at home and relaxed. The walks around Sapperton on a sunny spring day were loved by all. This is a very special place. Thank you for all you have done to make us feel so welcome. Our children also made some lovely friends on the Village green.
