We are happy to share our grade 2 listed 16th century former Coaching Inn in the centre of the delightful Cotswold village adjacent to Minchinhampton Common.
The ceilings are low and the floors are uneven and there is barely a straight line in the building. All the stairs are spiral, there are oak beams everywhere and many quirky nooks and crannies. It's apparently the oldest house in the village, has a welcoming and warm atmosphere and oozes character.

The space

The bedroom is cosy with a comfy bed and welcoming light.
The double bed is placed against the wall so access only from one side, worth bearing in mind if two of you are staying?
The private bathroom is right next door, standard shower over bath arrangement with loo partitioned to one end.

Guest access

Apart from your bedroom and bathroom you might choose to have breakfast in our dining room or more informally in our large farmhouse kitchen.
Consuming food in the bedroom is discouraged.

Interaction with guests

We are happy to interact (or not) with our visitors and can offer plenty of local information should that be wanted.
We are aware that we are all different and we are still fairly new to this so will try to be flexible. We will certainly help you when necessary with any difficulties or queries you have.
Quality breakfasts will always be available, from continental tea/coffee, toast and jams (as standard and inclusive), through to eggs, bacon, tomato, sausage, mushrooms, fried bread or toast, (wholemeal bread by default).
Gluten free and other options are available as we will be happy to buy any extras from our superb local farmers' market given enough advance notice. (NB average £8 cash cost for full breakfast)

Other things to note

The spiral stairs are not suited for those with mobility problems.
Mobile phone reception is limited in the village centre, we have a device that enables those on EE to get good reception in the house. O2 and vodaphone can be accessed in the street outside - texts from the guest bedroom window. Fast broadband is freely available.

I had such an incredible stay here. Katrina and Patrick are such a smart, kind and interesting couple. I had a wonderful conversation with them over breakfast. Speaking of breakfast- wow! Best breakfast of my trip. Ask Patrick for his delcious scrambled eggs. Their place is so unique and cosy, the bed was warm and comfortable. The garden was so beautiful and sunny. I highly recommend it- it will be something special. They think if every detail and are so hospitable.

I very much enjoyed my stay with Katrina and Patrick. It felt fitting to be staying at was once Minchinhampton 's oldest pub. My hosts couldn't have been more accommodating and it was a great central location to explore the local area.

Wonderful stay in this quaint little village in the Cotswold. The room was beautiful and really cosy! With such a comfortable bed! Katrina and Patrick were really lovely and welcoming too. We loved the area and had a great day shopping in Stroud which has lots of quirky shops. Would definitely return if wanting to stay in the area again!

Katrina and Patrick's home is a charming old coaching inn with a beautiful garden you might sit in on a warm day, and good walks from the doorstep; a great weekend retreat. It's the perfect spot to explore the wide-open spaces of Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons, to drop into Stroud to shop at the fantastic Farmers' Market, to enjoy plentiful local walks and views, to tramp till you're hungry and then return home for tea and cake. Excellent fish & chips at the local shop if you're not in the mood for a full restaurant meal, but Patrick's generous breakfasts will set you right for the day!

Response from Katrina & Patrick:
No apology needed, thanks so much for your lovely review. I'm so sorry you have not been well, hope it is over now. You are absolutely right about the drawers, I think we should have done that straight away and forgot when doing the rest of the room prep. It was a pleasure hosting you and it would be great to see you again some day if you do make it back to Gloucestershire. All the best. P and K.

An absolutely gem! I had a wonderful stay with Katrina and Patrick in their beautiful Cotswolds home. They made me feel so welcome. I so enjoyed my time there and would highly recommend. The room is lovely, with a charming private bathroom just next door and comes with everything you need. Brilliant experience all round.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely stay at Patrick and Katrinas place. It is a very beautiful house with a lovely peaceful garden in a very picturisque town. Patrick made us breakfast each morning with organic produce from the garden and was very friendly and welcoming. The house was quiet and very clean.

My husband, Patrick, and I love the local countryside and Cotswold architecture, both enjoy good food, gardening, conversation, and small p politics, such as equality, justice, green living, even philosophy...
He has always said that any subject can be interesting depending on the level of interest of the person talking about it.
