A delightful period cottage in a highly regarded North Cotswold village


Believed to date from 1867 Sutton Cottage is a semi-detached Cotswold stone cottage with well-presented accommodation set out over three floors. The current owners have invested considerably in the sympathetic improvement and extension of the cottage to create a charming family home which retains some period features including exposed timbers and stone walls, flagstone floors and window shutters. Great care has been taken to ensure a high-quality finish including light fittings from Jim Lawrence Lighting and hardware From The Anvil. The property has been decorated in a palette of calm colours throughout.

On the ground floor is a well-appointed kitchen situated at the heart of the home between the sitting room and dining room. The sitting room enjoys a view over the front garden and has a fireplace housing a wood burning stove. To the right of the hearth is a bespoke shelf and cupboard unit which incorporates a desk. The dining room is vaulted and has floor to ceiling glazing to the rear elevation. This room also has a fireplace with wood burning stove and a flagstone floor.

On the first floor are three charming bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a family bathroom. There is a fourth bedroom on the second floor and access to extensive loft storage.

To the front is off road parking for several cars and an electric car charger. Steps lead down from the parking area to the enclosed front garden which has well-stocked beds. A paved path leads to the front, side and rear of the cottage and to a newly built studio that lends itself to a multitude of uses (subject to planning consent). Water and electricity are connected. To the rear of the property is a paved terrace which is accessed from the dining room, a perfect spot for al fresco entertaining.


Darlingscott lies on the northern edge of the Cotswolds. It is close to the sought-after village of Ilmington, which offers a wide range of amenities, including a parish church, a community shop and café, a village hall and two good pubs. The market town of Shipston-on-Stour is just two miles away. It provides all the facilities required for day-to-day needs, whilst there are more extensive shopping and leisure facilities in the nearby towns of Stratford-upon-Avon, Leamington Spa and Cheltenham.
There is easy access to the national rail and motorway networks with direct trains running to London from Moreton-in-Marsh, 6 miles away and the M40 junctions at Warwick and Banbury. There is a wide range of schooling locally to suit most requirements, including an excellent primary school at Ilmington and a highly regarded secondary school in Chipping Campden.
