Wash House Cottage, Old Baptist Chapel Court, Tewkesbury GL20 5RZ




** Wash House Cottage is a little hidden gem ** Believed to date from the 1500’s one of the original wash houses serving the famous Tewkesbury Abbey. During the 1970’s the whole building was re-built using original materials. The property is located along a small medieval alleyway which leads to the Old Baptist Chapel Museum (this is open to the public on Tuesdays and Saturday’s). There is a large oak timber door at the end of the alleyway which is closed off at night. There are only three residents along this alleyway including the residents of The Wash House Cottage. The court also famous for the little cemetery at the top of the court as William Shakespeare’s relatives are buried there.

Once inside this beautiful cottage it is light and airy and very tastefully decorated throughout. The property has original beams along with features you would expect in this type of property. The cottage offers a large kitchen with inglenook fireplace currently closed off (could easily house a large aga) a well fitted kitchen with built in appliances, solid wood work tops and Belfast ceramic sink. The lounge is spacious with a window to the front aspect and three small sky light windows to the rear. An original style feature fireplace with a multi- fuel wood burner takes centre stage in the room, one can only imagine how lovely and cosy this would be in the winter. In one corner of the room behind a solid oak door is a large cupboard housing the washing machine and tumble dryer. On the first floor is bedroom two and the bathroom. The main bedroom is located on the upper floor. Although there is no garden with this property there is the local Victoria Gardens with a very short stroll, the Abbey grounds with play areas, not forgetting the Ham well known for dog walkers.
