There is not a better location than an old Saxon hamlet originally listed in the Domesday Book in the picturesque rolling hills of the North Cotswolds. There is not a better place there than a room in our 17 century farm house with its original features - beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace, AGA cooker.
Our house imaginatively called 'The Old House', was built just after the chaos caused locally by the English Civil War in the second half of the seventeenth century. It has been updated a little since then though.
The accommodation is flexible but we offer two main options. On the first floor the largest bedroom is called the 'Pink Bedroom' - pink rose not pink Barbie! It sleeps two on a king-size bed and if needed we can provide a baby cot for a small child. We also have the Yellow Room, which is smaller but also has a double bed. If your party is of four, we could offer the two rooms. Please request a quote, if you are interested in renting the two bedrooms.
Please note that we only have one group of guests at a time and there is a large screen TV in the front room if you would like to catch up on the news - or alternatively use the wifi for catch up TV on your own device.
We have various options for breakfast and supper, particularly on your night of arrival if that is helpful. We send a sample menu to our guests before they arrive, so they can make their choices. There is a small additional charge for those. Alternatively we can direct you to one of the many eating options less than 10 minutes drive away.
From here you can access the beautiful North Cotswolds. In less than 20 minutes driving you can get to any of the following - Chipping Campden, Stow on the Wold, Bourton on the Water, Moreton in the Marsh, Upper and Lower Slaughter. In the other direction there is Shakespeare County of Warwickshire and Stratford on Avon, Warwick, Leamington Spa. Hidcote is about 15 minutes by car from Stratford where you can enjoy the theatre, the restaurants or just a lovely walk by the river.
We provide free parking space if you come by car. You can use our kitchen, washing machine and sit, if weather permits, in our garden. There is a big trampoline for children and a slide. We have more than 100 fruit trees in the garden of different sorts. These include many varieties of apples, pears, plums, gages, sour and sweet cherries, quinces - these are quite reliable croppers and sometimes we may have apricots, peaches and figs but that depends very much on the weather each year.
If you travel by other means, we are happy to meet you (from a bus in Cheltenham or Stratford or from a train in Moreton in Marsh or Honeybourne) for a reasonable extra charge.
We are only 35 minutes away from Cheltenham, famous for amongst other things the horse racing festival held in March every year - including of course the Cheltenham Gold Cup.
House rulesWe would ask that our guests keep us well informed, particularly about your intended time of arrival (at least 24 hours is preferred so that we can ensure one of us is here to meet you) and when you will eat breakfast (so that it can be freshly prepared). Latest Check In on day of arrival will be 7pm unless there is a prior agreement.
Please also remember that it is an old house and things may not always work in the way you expect - if you are in any doubt please just ask, we are more than happy to explain so that you have a nice relaxing time with us. We will appreciate your feedback - formally through Airbnb or informally direct to us. We also welcome any suggestions for improvements that we could make.
We have two cats but they live mainly in the garden, at times they come in but never in the bedrooms.

Reviews of this property
My first stay with Wimdu and when we booked we wondered why this lovely looking room was so cheap. Konstantina was very helpful in giving advice on how we get to her place and when we arrived we had a warm welcome. The yellow room was so lovely and comfortable we would always come back! It was all clean and big enough for sleeping two. The bathroom was recently refurbished. Even breakfast was included in the price. There was so ,uch choice we couldn't even eat all. We would definitely come back and strongly recommend this cosy house!
