Room very small, no wardrobe or TV and cold shower. Being located directly over kitchen...More

An open fire, comfy seats and cold outside. It was just what we wanted. We'd wandered round WInchcombe and wanted to sit and chat and warm up. This was perfect, Cotswold stone at its best

I’ve been many times but never written on TA. It’s a lovely friendly, smart but cosy atmosphere. Little cosy lounge area with a log fire for coffee or tea. Busy bar area. A dinning room and large garden which is fab in the summer. I...More
