Just back from a long weekend break in 'Elinore Fettiplace' self catering accommodation, and wow.....the pictures on the website look great, but the reality of this place is absolutely stunning.
We were looking for a romantic getaway which would us allow us to relax and unwind, with the freedom of self catering to do exactly as we pleased. The hosts Melissa and Mark are superb in every way, with the right balance of privacy and availability if we needed anything.....thank you both for sharing your beautiful home. Melissa is like a Duracell bunny, always busy busy busy.......had to remind her to breathe!!!! A fabulous lady who cannot do enough for you.
The gardens are beautiful which you are able to wander around. There is a fabulous lake with swans and a marquee from which you can sit and while away the hours. Pauntley court is steeped in history, and is really a stunning part of the past which we have had the pleasure to experience.
We would recommend Pauntly Court without hesitation.
Nearly forgot to mention the cake.....which was waiting for us upon our arrival, which was as lovely a touch as it was to taste; the waistline may disagree though!! And a soap gift too (thank you Melissa) nothing lacked in the attention to detail.
Thanks again Melissa and Mark

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pauntley Court must be one of the most enchanting houses in which to stay. It is said to be the birthplace of Dick Whittington, who travelled from here to become Lord Mayor of London. Pauntley Court has beautiful formal gardens and is situated in a stunning position. The village of Pauntley is on the edge of the Cotswolds, two and half hours drive from London. Mark and Melissa welcome you. We have two beautiful Bed & Breakfast rooms in the main house and a third bedroom in our holiday let Elinor Fettiplace, which is a self catering wing off the main house. Pauntley is a peaceful and magical place to come and relax and enjoy the beautiful gloucestershire countryside away from the strains of modern day life. ... more less
