À propos de ce logement
Come and enjoy a visit to the ancient city of Gloucester and stay in a comfortable double room in our lovely Edwardian townhouse.
We offer a spacious first floor bedroom with king sized bed and modern oak furniture. The room includes free wi fi, wardrobe space, drawers and writing desk area for your laptop/notebook/ipad. Towels and a hairdryer are included.
The price includes a continental breakfast, with cereals, toast (with home made bread) and an egg if you would like one.
This listing is for a room on the first floor however if you have restricted mobility I can offer a comfortable ground floor room with a double sofa-bed and downstairs wet room with WC (not ensuite but close by). We are not fully wheelchair accessible as there is a step up into the house at the front and back. Please ask about the other room when you enquire as it is not always listed.
Children: We are happy to accept babies and children but do not have a cot so you would need to bring your own. We can provide a child's high chair (the sort that fits to a dining chair). You need to be aware that we have a small pond in the garden.
Accès des voyageurs
You will be very welcome to share the family sitting and dining rooms.
We will provide breakfast each morning unless you request otherwise. You can use our kitchen to cook meals or make drinks or snacks but please be aware that we will be using it too. Please eat your meals in our dining room, not in your room.
The upstairs bathroom is shared with one or two family members and there is also a downstairs shower/wet room with WC for busy times.
Échanges avec les voyageurs
We love meeting people and have hosted many British and international guests over the years. We try to be around as much as possible and, as we have lived in the area for over 30 years, can give you lots of advice about good places to visit.
The historic City of Gloucester with its beautiful Cathedral and re-developed docks area with shops, restaurants and cinema is about a mile and a half away – 10 minutes by bus or a 25 minute walk. We are also a similar distance from Kingsholm Rugby Ground. The University of Gloucestershire Oxstalls campus is a 10 minute walk away.
Please note that we are on a road that gets quite busy with traffic queuing at the nearby traffic lights in the mornings and early evenings.
Elegant Regency Cheltenham, known for its shops and festivals is just 20 minutes away by car or 40 minutes by bus. There is a park and ride service on the outskirts that is very convenient to get to.
We are just one minute’s walk from the bus route for both Gloucester and Cheltenham.
From Gloucester train station (just over a mile away) you can travel to Bristol, Birmingham, Cardiff and London. The bus route near our house takes you very close to the train and bus stations in the City centre.
If you are arriving by car, train or coach please ask for directions to our house when you book.
Further afield our house will make a good base from which to explore the beautiful countryside around us. We are a short drive from many beautiful Cotswolds villages and the Forest of Dean and spectacular River Wye are to the West of us . Ideally you will need a car to explore as public transport outside the big towns is not great. I may be able to help with a suitable itinerary if you let me know in advance.
Bristol, Birmingham and Oxford can all be reached in under an hour by car with Cardiff just a little further away.
Try a stained glass taster day
I am a glass artist and can offer a stained glass taster day where you can learn to create a simple panel to take home. The day includes refreshments and a light lunch and the materials needed to make your panel. I can take a maximum of two students at a time in my small studio in the garden. The studio is heated with a wood burning stove in cooler months. Find out more on my website:
Take a private guided tour of Gloucester
With enough notice we may also be able to arrange a private guided tour of the city or the cathedral by a qualified city and cathedral guide who is also a friend.
Please ask about the price for these extras.
Please treat the house and occupants with respect and care. We do not allow smoking in the house and no pets please. Please take off your outdoor shoes when you go upstairs.
Si vous annulez jusqu'à 24 heures avant le voyage, vous recevez un remboursement intégral, frais de service compris.
