    “What a great place for us all to celebrate my Dads 85th birthday.”

    So spacious and well appointed with lots of great touches including bowls of fruit and lots of logs for the burner. The place was fully equipped and immaculate, with lots of towels and very comfy beds throughout. ...

    So spacious and well appointed with lots of great touches including bowls of fruit and lots of logs for the burner. The place was fully equipped and immaculate, with lots of towels and very comfy beds throughout. The owners were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The only thing we would change is to make the fire alarm in the kitchen (very loud and tied to all the other alarms) less sensitive to food cooking as it went off frequently. It needs moving from above the cooker.... Otherwise this was a fantastic stay in a huge well appointed house and we will definitely stay there again...

About the location

CHELTENHAM

Tewkesbury 5.9 miles; Cirencester 14.7 miles; Stratford-upon-Avon 30 miles;

Cheltenham is a town in Gloucestershire and lies beneath Cleeve Hill, the highest point in the Cotswolds and above the vale of the River Severn. It is known as 'The Western Gateway to the Cotswolds'. This edge-of-the Cotswolds spa town is hard to beat for refined elegance and Regency terraces, annual festivals, Ladies' College and racecourse. Also fortnightly farmers markets, classy shops and restaurants all surrounded by glorious countryside. The town is home to the renowned Cheltenham Festival, 4 days of horse jump racing culminating in the Gold Cup, held annually in March at Cheltenham Racecourse. It's also known for Regency buildings, including the Pittville Pump Room, a remnant of Cheltenham’s past as a spa town. There's fine art at The Wilson museum, and the Victorian Everyman Theatre has an ornate auditorium.
