The Experience

This smart first-floor studio, attractive in reclaimed red brick, is reached via its own wrought-iron staircase; you are beautifully private. Find a clever, compact, contemporary space with a light and uncluttered living area, a mini window seat opposite two very comfortable boutiquey beds, fine linen, wicker armchair, and a patio area for balmy days. John and Annette live next door, and you stroll over to their friendly home for a tasty, locally sourced breakfast: artisan bread, homemade jams, marmalade and muesli, a traditional full English. It’s a 20-minute easy walk to the centre of Cheltenham and you’re a quick canter from the races.

We enjoyed the most perfect stay with Annette and John. The exquisite Studio has everything you need for an extremely comfortable and peaceful weekend in Cheltenham. The Studio is very well-designed and equipped with many thoughtful and generous touches, like fresh milk in the fridge and delicious scones on arrival. The breakfasts are absolutely superb too. It is a pretty and easy walk into town and there are frequent buses at the end of the road too. We look forward to many future stays here.

This has to be one of our favourite places. The accommodation was perfect - pristine, modern, comfortable and little extra touches, like coffee/tea making facilities, a fridge and china/cutlery made it exceptional. On arrival there was home-made cake and a bowl of fruit with milk in the fridge. The owners were delightful, very friendly and sociable and we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in their own beautiful home. Highly recommended.

Carol, Haywards heath

What a fabulous little find! Everything was just perfect and immaculate - a cosy little studio with all you need for a very comfortable weekend away. Scones on arrival and the most fabulous home made breakfast. Great attention to detail from the lovely hosts, Annette and John. We’ll be back :)

Charlotte, Poole

Impressive comfort, cleanliness & attention to detail. Great welcome & excellent breakfasts. Convenient & safe car parking area. This accommodation has my recommendation.

Wayne, North wales

The Courtyard Studio is attractive and well-appointed with everything you need for a 2- or 3-day stay. It is in a built-up area, but quiet, close to the race course and open countryside, and conveniently situated for easy access to the centre of Cheltenham. Everything in both the studio and the breakfast room is well chosen, with the needs of guests uppermost in mind. Breakfast is immaculately presented, with a wide choice of dishes. John and Annette are ideal hosts, discreet, attentive and a rich source of information.

Barrie, Hampshire

Annette and John were just the most perfect hosts, we were welcomed with homemade scones and tea, there was everything in the studio you could want, very clean, beds great and a perfect position for Cheltenham which you could walk to, and the Cotswolds are right on the doorstep Annette and John serve you the best breakfast ever and help you with all your questions We returned home very relaxed and would very much like to return soon

Angela, Weston super mare

Fabulous! Although it looks good on the website, it does not do justice to the studio - its probably the best B&B accommodation we have ever stayed in. Wonderful hosts, really good breakfasts with some variation each day. We cannot recommend this highly enough!

Graham, Norwich

Just the best B and B ever! Wonderful accommodation and incredibly helpful and kind hosts. We cannot recommend too highly.

Lucy, Taunton

Annette and John do everything to make your stay special. The accommmodation is self contained, warm and comfortable, with twin beds, shower room, fridge, microwave and small sink. Every care is taken over the preparation of breakfast and as the only guests Annette and John will cater for all preferences. Near Cheltenham city and handy for the Cotswold villages, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Recommended.

Christine, Highlands

A very warm welcome from kind and generous hosts! The accommodation was first class' - the best B&B we have ever stayed in. The studio is beautifully furnished and equipped. What a pleasure to be greeted by freshly baked scones and a bowl of fresh fruit! Breakfast was extremely enjoyable and nothing was too much trouble. John and Annette were so helpful and generous of spirit.

Jennifer, Stroud

Excellent accommodation, very hospitable hosts, would thoroughly recommend. It was a pleasure.

Hiary, Nr. wells, somerset

This is a lovely studio flat, comfortable, well equipped and beautifully decorated, perfect if like us you are going to the racesfor, or visiting in and around Cheltenham. Kind friendly hosts who are happy to give you as much or as little attention as you need. A great choice at Breakfast and perfectly cooked poached eggs . Highly recommended.

Mary, Ely

We stayed here for four nights last week while we attended the Cheltenham Literature Festival. We had planned to walk the one mile or so to the Festival every day but my wife had recently chipped an ankle bone and found walking painful. The Gills were marvellously kind giving us car rides in in one occasion and rides home on three dark and damp evenings. They made our holiday. They are well-read, active people with a wide range of interests. The guest room is lovely. You are completely self contained and it is quiet. Not only is it clean, everything seems brand new and fresh.
