Boulsdon Croft Manor is an imposing Georgian house set within the grounds of our 24 acre livery yard near the foot of May Hill, Gloucs.

We are surrounded by horses, orchards & blackcurrant fields with footpaths for miles (2 dogs welcome) and even have our own 1.2km exercise circuit round the farm with picnic area half way. We have a large heated pool and grass tennis (Both 1 May-30 Sep) & all year hot tub (extra), croquet lawn & a games room with cinema & table tennis.

The space
** now taking bookings for single households from 12 April and 2 households from 17 May and hopefully normal from 21 June!**

From the large entrance hall, enter the kitchen and breakfast room with range cooker, Tassimo coffee machine (bring pods), breakfast bench, large table, TV and ample storage.

The spacious living room is complete with grand piano, 55 inch TV with Freesat and a cosy wood burner for those colder evenings.

The period table and chairs are at the heart of the majestic dining room, with large ornate mirrors and chandelier to make every occasion a special one.

Up the stairs, to the first floor landing, you will find a huge ceiling height mirror and the first of 4 colour co-ordinated & horse named bedrooms...

Palamino is a double, Piebald has 2 singles, Grey has full size single bunk beds for kids or adults and the imposing Chestnut has an Indonesian 4 poster king and an en-suite bathroom. There is also a large family bathroom on this floor over looking the pool and lawns.

If you picked your room early, you may be disappointed when you carry on up the stairs...

Shire has a hand crafted 4 poster king and just as you think you have found all of the bedrooms, go up a final flight to the mezzanine and you will find Shetland with a king bed.

Shetland overlooks the games and cinema suite where you can all chill out on the sofas and cow hide chairs, play table tennis or bring on the movie night with our big screen projector complete with sound bar. You have the choice of Netflix movies, TV or you can connect your own laptop. This floor is serviced by a further bathroom.

The enchanting arboretum complete with central fire pit for toasting marshmallows is to the front. The side and rear of the house overlooks the paddocks that are filled with around 15 horses and on the kitchen patio we have the hot tub if you would like to use it at an additional cost.
The rear lawn for croquet or other games leads you to the huge heated outdoor pool (1 May - 30 Sep) which has a changing room, fridge, lounger deck and a large BBQ deck with table for 12 & stunning views.

Finally, whether you want a brisk walk or a quick run, we have a 1.2km circuit track around our farm with a picnic area by the stream about half way round.

Guest access
You have the full use of the immediate gardens, arboretum, tennis court and pool.

Other things to note
Just a note to reassure you and guests over your stay at Boulsdon.

All of our laundry goes through a commercial process called OZONE which kills all known bacteria and virus known to man, and is the chemical being used to sterilise streets.

Additionally, the house is professionally cleaned between each booking and we are currently undertaking an additional top to bottom surface clean with disinfectant when the general clean is complete.

The size of our house and grounds affords you the benefit of determining your interaction with others, with plenty of footpaths accessible from the property for walks etc and I am sure you will find it a welcome break from the current level of stress.

We want you to feel at ease when your stay with us and whilst we live in the grounds and usually meet & greet guests we are more than happy to just leave you instructions / communicate over text/Whatsapp or even shout from a distance (!).

If you have booked the hot tub, rest assured that it is emptied and refilled for each guests and fully chlorinated which is known to deactivate a virus like COVID19.
