An 1820 Cotswold stone townhouse in the middle of bustling Tetbury with a little paved courtyard at the back. There’s a beautiful sitting room on the ground floor with a lovely stone fireplace (kindling and first basket of logs on the house) plenty of space for lolling, sisal carpets, neutral colours and shelves of books. Cooks won’t be disappointed with all the paraphernalia in the spick-and-span galley kitchen – there’s a dining area at the rear from which you can escape to the outdoor space. Up the staircase with its elegant wallpaper to the first bedroom with a rather sumptuous French feel, a dainty chandelier and an antique bed chock full of crisp cotton and goose down comfort. The second bedroom is one floor up and equally boutique with rooftop views; period style bathrooms have modern touches and natural stone. This is an excellent place to stay for those who want to walk to everything, but there is one parking space included and lots to explore: Westonbirt Arboretum is just down the road, Bath is 35 minutes away and there are National Trust gems at Lacock, Dyrham Park and Castle Combe. The Cotswold Way is nearby for proper yomps.
