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 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.
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.
From Mar 10 - 17, 2018 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
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.
