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 and onsite pottery and printmaking studio for those who want to get creative.

Award winning accommodation, to cater for groups up to 43 and a lakeside retreat (sleeps 2+2).

We cater for small weddings, anniversaries, hen parties, family reunions and birthdays or team building activities.

The 5 rooms in the manor house and the Attic flat sleep up to 14 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 had the best time at Upper Court. The team were incredibly welcoming and made every effort to ensure we had the most relaxing holiday. The setting is incredible, with stunning views over the lake and wonderful walks in the countryside on the doorstep. The perfect family escape.

  • Our second time here and couldn’t fault anything. So beautiful, peaceful and loved every minute. The homemade flapjacks were such a sweet touch. Nick & Katherine

  • Myself and some friends stayed in Courtyard Cottage and it was perfect for us...a very warm and comfortable home from home. The cottage is 18th century and has a lovely, gentle atmosphere. I only had time for a brief walk around the grounds, but they were beautiful. It's a lovely, tranquil place and I really hope I can stay here again!

  • The property and the surrounding facilities were wonderful. We had an amazing stay, and even ran out of time. The property is ideally located near lots of places o visit as well as having amazing stuff to do on site. The swimming pool was a particular highlight. The accomodation is also very safe and secure.

  • The property and the surrounding facilities were wonderful. We had an amazing stay, and even ran out of time to do some of the activities we wanted. We were a large family group covering ages 5 to nearly 80, and everyone had a great time. The property is ideally located near lots of places o visit as well as having amazing stuff to do on site. The swimming pool was a particular highlight. The accomodation is also very safe and secure.

  • I originally booked the Upper Court for May 2021 to coincide with my 65th birthday but this had to be postponed due to covid. Unbeknown to us at the time, the rescheduled date ended up as the Platinum Jubilee weekend. I invited my 4 daughters and their families plus my Mother, Brother and Sister. In the end there were 22 of us over the weekend (Thursday to Sunday) ranging in age from 1 to 92. we used the Courtyard Cottage, Dovecote and 3 rooms in the Manor house as well as the Coach House. The attraction of the Upper Court was that it was just about the right size for my party and it offered the opportunity of both separate spaces (for my daughters with children) and a space for mixing. It meant my guests could do their own thing if they wished or join together for meals and activities. I had visited the site about a month before our stay and looked around the grounds. I'd recommend a visit in advance but if anything, it only confirmed my original decision. The weekend itself made for a wonderful family gathering and I don't think it could have gone any better. The house and grounds are beautiful and the village is quiet. The accommodation worked well. It took a number of attempts to find the best combination of rooms and cottages for the various groups but the accommodation is quite flexible and in the end we arrived at a very good solution. If anything, the rooms in the Coach House felt bigger than they looked on the website. We managed 4 "home-cooked" meals all together in the lounge of the Coach House and ate at the Crown Inn in the village on the Saturday evening - which had the benefit of being in walking distance. We had a minor changeover of rooms on the Friday, due to the combination of rooms and arrival dates but it worked well and the rooms were made up exceptionally well with the minimum of fuss. During the weekend, we spent time in the grounds, the village, visited Hidcote Manor and climbed over Bredon Hill. The feedback from everyone who went is very positive and I'm really pleased with my choice.
  • This was a beautiful cottage and we had a lovely stay. Only issue being a skylight making the room too light for my children to settle to sleep. Thank you for a lovely stay!
  • We booked all of the cottages and the gallery for a hen party and had an absolutely amazing weekend. The properties themselves were lovely, clean and had all that we needed, the grounds were incredible and the gallery room was perfect for what we needed. We also paid to have the pool heated and enjoyed two lovely afternoons in the pool. The properties, location, grounds and owners/staff were all amazing from start to finish! We also thought it was great value for money and would definitely return. Our hen said it was the perfect venue! We've made memories we will treasure, thank you!
