Explore the accommodation further...
Melksham Court sits nestled on the side of a Cotswold escarpment in the village of Stinchcombe. This unique miniature estate is exquisitely situated, facing West, framed in mature parkland, sheltered by wooded hills above. This ancient hamlet, which dates back to the 12th century, consists of a number of farm buildings surrounding a principle manor house.
The house itself is predominantly 17th century much of it having been burnt down during the civil war although parts are believed to be from around 1360. It is purportedly the birth place of William Tyndale, who translated the bible into English.
Melksham Court is steeped in history, yet provides lavish 21st century amenity, an ideal place for large groups of up to 30 to come and stay, relax and play, party, and use as a base explore all the Cotswolds have to offer.
