The
Experience

Oak doors open to a stylish contemporary interior, filled by light and space. 

Under-floor heating keeps the slate floor warm on cool days, while the high ceiling helps the airy feel. A lime-washed staircase leads to a mezzanine bedroom of uncluttered simplicity with long views across the valley – and there’s a day bed for an extra guest. Stay on a B&B or self-catering basis, with breakfast ingredients delivered as you wish: local eggs and honey, organic milk, jams, good bread, muesli, granola, fruit and juice. 

Beautiful walks start from the door – join the Cotswold Way, or cover the three miles to Laurie Lee’s favourite pub, The Woolpack Inn, Slad. If you fancy a spin, Stroud is a ten minute drive, with its famous farmers market every Saturday. Cheltenham and Gloucester are close, too. In summer, open the tri-fold doors and let the sun pour in; in winter, relax on the sofa, play games, read or watch one of the many DVDs.

Reviews

A very cool space that was both impressive to look at but also very comfortable. The studio was just a short walk from all the amenities in Painswick and a great base to explore further. Recommended for whatever weekend you might be after.

Steve

Sara's place is absolutely brilliant - beautiful location, stylish apartment and a lovely breakfast. Sara was so helpful giving us tips about the local area. Painswick is the perfect location to stay for exploring the Cotswolds. Highly recommend!!

Anna & kim

Thank you for a brilliant stay in such a relaxing and stylish environment! From when we arrived we felt welcome and appreciated your recommendations within the local area. The added little bits for breakfast were a lovely touch. Will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Lewis & lilley

Whether you're walking the Cotswold Way or just fancy a quiet weekend to yourselves in a classical English town, look no further than Mayfield Studio. Sara will welcome you with open arms into her modern yet homely converted outbuilding, whilst you relax before heading to a fantastic local pub for dinner.

Sarah, Sawday's inspector

Thank you for a wonderful stay Sara! We had such a comfy and relaxing time in the Studio although it has only increased our love of Ercol! The Studio is beautifully decorated and has everything we needed. We loved all the tasty bread, juice and other treats.

Nancy & rob

spotless, tastefully designed modern studio in the most beautiful and unspoiled village; Sara was attentive to all we needed to settle in for a few days of amazing walks; and we left with plenty more to explore at the next visit; highly recommended

Anne

Wonderful experience all round. Beautiful space, fantastic, friendly and helpful owner located in the most fantastic walking country. we took our dog and could not have been made more welcome. we will 100% revisit, simply sublime

Richard

If you like the look of Mayfield Studio from the photographs then just go ahead and book. It's even better than it looks. Sara has thought of everything you could possibly need and then added a few more bits and pieces for extra measure! All of this and it's dog friendly too. We intend to return!

Elaine

A lovely place to stay in a beautiful village. Everything the description said and more, and reality even better than the pictures. We loved staying here and it made the Painswick visit even more special.

Sue

Wonderful bolt-hole in the Costwolds. Painswick is a delightful village, with lovely cafes, a beautiful church, and fabulous views in all directions. Mayfied Studio is a funky, comfortable self-contained space next to Sara's beautiful home. She has created a soothing and relaxing space, and filled it with generous touches aplenty. We particularly liked the ability to cook our own breakfast when we wanted, with goodies supplied by Sara. A really special place and one that we hope very much to return to.

David

We had a lovely break. Sara was very welcoming & helpful & The Studio is a great base for exploring Cirencester, Cheltenham & Stroud. Painswick is a beautiful little town with a good choice of eating places & lots of good walks straight from The Studio's doorstep

Jean

We had a magnificent weekend at the Studio. Sara coudln’t have been more welcoming, accommodating and helpful. She has all the local knowledge and the studio was cosy and warm despite the cold weather. Attention to detail is superb and hence breakfast was wonderful. We are already planning our next visit.

Phoebe

We had an amazing weekend staying at the Mayfield studio. Sara is the perfect host and the BnB set up is stunning, your own perfect little bolthole with the added bonus of cooking your own 'B' when you want. Sara stocks the fridge full of delicious breakfast items and every detail has been thought of including a stash of biscuits to go with your tea! We really didn't want to leave. Painswick is the perfect weekend escape too, no need to leave the village there is so much to see and do! Thanks again Sara, we will certainly be back!

Cat

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Mayfield Studio. Our host, Sara, greeted us with a very warm welcome and instantly made us feel at home. The accommodation itself is very absolutely beautiful - spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and with great attention to detail (right down to delicious fresh coffee and a stack of DVDs for when you want to relax and unwind). We wouldn't hesitate recommending Mayfield to anyone looking for a place to explore the local area. Thank you for making our trip away so special.

Location

The neighbourhood

Painswick is a beautiful Cotswold stone village dating back to the 1100s. It was made prosperous as a wool town and is known as 'The Queen of the Cotswolds’. Pubs, restaurants, a cafe and convenience store are within easy walking distance. The Royal Oak is a five-minute walk, The Falcon and The Painswick Hotel are both a ten-minute stroll. The Cotswold Way passes through the village. The artistic town of Stroud is three miles away where there’s a train station and famous farmer’s market. The Regency town of Cheltenham, for horse racing and festivals, is ten miles.
