This is a 400 year old town house that is on the Cotswold Way long distance path, and close to the centre of this Cotwold market town. It is convenient for walkers tackling this delightful section of the Cotswold Way.

The space

This is a very old house, at least 400 years old, which adds charm and quirkiness to its features. The attic bedroom and en-suite are, as you can guess at the top of a steep flight of stairs. Sadly these stairs and the uneven old floorboards and the many changes is level, mean that this house is not suitable for anyone with mobility problems.
The room is light and comfortable and warm but has restricted headroom at the sides of the room. It has a great view from the roof window. Tea and coffee making facilities are available in the room. There is plenty of storage space for clothing, equipment and bags. In this house I am familiar with muddy boots, so that is no problem and would like to extend a special welcome to all walkers and ramblers.

Guest access

You are welcome to share of use the kitchen and its facilities if you want to provide your own meals.
If you would like a soak in the bath at the end of the day, that is fine, but this is a shared bathroom.
You are welcome to use the downstairs sitting room area with TV, radio, and wood burning stove to keep you cosy.
There is a small patio and garden which would be a pleasant place in the summer, but should be considered a work in progress currently.
I would prefer to welcome you to the house myself as it is not so easy to leave a key, so approximate eta would be helpful. You can then have your own key and come and go as you like.

Other things to note

I share my house with an old cat who keeps out of the way mostly, and a friendly, happy dog. It may be possible to accommodate another well behaved dog by arrangement.

We had a very warm welcome and were fascinated by the beauty of this atmospheric house. Helen made our stay very special, breakfast was lovingly prepared and so was our room! A place and a person to return to!

About Helen

As I live in this delightful part of the Cotswolds I enjoy walking the hills and valleys with my dog Rupert or with the local Ramblers. I have spent time renovating this old house trying to restore some of its original character and make it a congenial space to live in. I look forward to others enjoying this space too.
