The Experience

This Georgian townhouse on a leafy street is a five-minute walk from the centre of Cheltenham. Views at the back look onto the Montpellier Gardens and Cotswold Hills. Sit outside on balmy evenings on the garden terrace – it’s peaceful next to the small pond. Inside all is cosy with books, boardgames, an honesty bar and a merry fire.

Each bedroom has tea, coffee and homemade sloe gin. Most are large enough to have comfortable seats, and two separate suites in the garden are more modern. Breakfast is served downstairs in the dining room or the conservatory – the full works, muffins, porridge, fruit, yogurt… Cheltenham is at your feet for dinner, so stroll to smart brasserie The Ivy, French L’artisan, Thai or Indian restaurants.

Beata and her small team look after you well and can help with tips about things to do. Find a fine collection of Arts & Crafts at The Wilson, discover the Montpellier Gardens or visit The Pittville Pump Room, the largest spa in town.

The neighbourhood

Cheltenham, on the edge of the Cotswolds and the region’s major town, owes its graceful Regency buildings and manicured squares to its heyday as a spa resort in the 18th century. These days it’s better known for its racecourse, come in mid-March for the Cheltenham Cup.

Local points of interest from Beata Seidler

  • Pump Room is the grandest survival of the town’s many spa buildings. Overlooking the sweeping lawns and ornamental lakes of Pittville Park it is the perfect place to step back in time: imagine the swirling dancers in the ballroom, when the music playing
  • Cheltenham's famous Promenade dates back to 1818 at the height of the Regency period, when the avenue of elms and horse chestnut trees was first planted.
  • Drive north out of Cheltenham, traversing Cleeve Hill, visiting Winchcombe, Stanway, Stanton, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Blockley, Moreton-in-Marsh, The Fosse Way, Stow-on-the-Wold, Upper and Lower Slaughter,back to Cheltenham.
  • Sudeley Castle, which sits nestled in the Cotswold Hills on the edge of the historic town of Winchcombe.
  • Sitting in the heart of the Cotswolds, Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park has a long-standing reputation for a fun-filled day out. Visitors of all ages can interact closely with the animals and learn about farming, past and present.
