Luxury Cottage Bed and Breakfast

Cotswolds Cottage B&B

Our Summerhouse provides a little oasis for guests in the pretty gardens of our traditional Cotswold stone cottage.

We welcome B&B guests to Yew Tree Cottage in Turkdean in the heart of the Cotswolds - an ideal base for exploring this beautiful district.

This cottage B&B is a quintessential Cotswolds home providing every modern comfort in a very traditional setting.  A perfect 'cottage break'!

Teas in the pretty gardens in the Summer and open fires in the Winter ensure a warm welcome all year round.  Yew Tree Cottage provides new age comfort with old world charm. The emphasis is on an informal relaxed atmosphere and English home cooking with fresh home-baked breads and cakes and real local produce.

All in all, a beautiful Cotswolds B&B.

B&B Accommodation

Cotswolds accommodation beamed bedroomWe have only two double bedrooms: one has an 'en-suite' bathroom, the other has a private bathroom, less than 1 yard (or 1 metre) from the bedroom door. Both bedrooms have 4' 6"-wide (137cm) double beds, televisions, DVD-players, tea and coffee-making facilities and free wi-fi. The comfortable beamed bedrooms have modern bathroom facilities and well-lit, pretty rooms.

TripAdvisor Hall of Fame

We were chuffed to be elected to the Trip Advisor Hall of Fame in 2015 after receiving a Certificate of Excellence for the last five years. We received another Certificate of Excellence for 2016 too and we have just passed the 200 TA reviews mark as well.

Teas and Dinners

As well as traditional Cotswolds B&B we also enjoy producing kitchen suppers for guests who would prefer to stay at home some evenings. These may be traditional roasts, casseroles, or steak & kidney pie followed by hot choc puds. Click here for a sample menu, but don't hesitate to ask if there's something else you fancy.

Local pubs and restaurants cover just about every cuisine and price range imaginable. We have a reasonably comprehensive listing of our local recommendations.


Just two miles from Northleach, with its unspoiled village atmosphere and historic "Wool Church", Yew Tree Cottage is very well placed for touring all the local Cotswold villages. We are equidistant some 30 miles from both Oxford and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Trips to either Bourton or Stow can be supplemented by an almost infinite variety of meandering tours of beautiful local villages.

Local Attractions and Activities

This is excellent walking country with well-marked local paths as well as the longer-distance Cotswold, Macmillan, Diamond, Windrush, Gloucestershire and Warden’s Ways all in close proximity. Yew Tree Cottage is just 45 minutes walk from the local pub, or five minutes by car. (We find that guests quite often like to walk to the pub and get us to pick them up later.) 

Batsford, Hidcote and Kiftsgate Gardens are all close by. Antique hunting in both Stow-on-the-Wold and Moreton-in-the-Marsh can be particularly fruitful. Cirencester and Regency Cheltenham should not be missed and visits to the Cotswold Farm Park and the Roman Villa at Chedworth (NT) are popular too. Day visits to Stratford-upon-Avon, Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle and Oxford are all easy from Turkdean.  Overseas visitors often astonish us by including Stonehenge and Windsor in their itineraries too.

Canine B&B

Cotswolds B&B puppies Yew Tree Cottage is currently home to two black labradors, Bee and Bumble and Atticus - a rather handsome cocker spaniel. They are all exceptionally friendly and enjoy the company of guests, both human and canine - but if you are not keen on dogs, or if you are sadly afflicted by pet allergies, Yew Tree Cottage may not be the best place...

We don't allow dogs in bedrooms, but we do have a kennel "suite" where your dogs are very welcome to stay for some canine B&B too.
