A fine house and a big B&B, but one that retains a deeply homely feel; Duncan and Jo are hugely well-travelled and have filled it with pictures and artefacts from all over the world. Bedrooms differ (three are in a neat annexe) but all are cosy and well decorated with lovely colours, good fabrics, pocket sprung mattresses and bright bathrooms with thick towels. Breakfast – locally sourced, cooked on the Aga and brought to round tables – sets you up for fabulous walks: you are a mile from the Cotswold Way. Return to a basement sitting room with comfy armchairs and lots of books, and a bustling town full of restaurants and shops.

"At Moda House we found a warm welcome from Jo & Duncan who are exquisite hosts and the charm of a three hundred year old house full of character and beautifully kept. We were billeted in rooms 7 (double room) and 4 (single room) with a fantastic view of Chipping Sodbury's main street. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, spacious with great en-suite facilities. The breakfast made from locally sourced produce was feshly cooked and fortified us for the day. Our hosts were extremely gracious to our requests and we thank them. We certainly hope to make a return visit some day."

"Such a great find in Chipping Sodbury. We had a superb weekend at Moda House, very welcoming, lovely decor and the room was very comfortable with everything we needed to hand. Duncan and Jo couldn't have been more helpful, and seemed to know everything local we needed to know. Definitely we will return. Excellent breakfast too!!"

"We visited the Moda House recently. We found it very comfortable. Jo & Duncan are very friendly we had a great welcome. Our room was large with a fabulas comfy huge bed. The room was very clean and tidy. Moda House is a really interesting building and has been decorated beautifully. The art work is great and the lounge comfortable. I would have no hesitation in going back"

"After a long drive from home, it was a pleasure to be given such a warm greeting and welcome by Jo, who took great care in ensuring my stay was comfortable and relaxing. The Moda House has great character with the owners having decorated it to reflect their extensive worldwide travels, a welcome change from the bland, standardized hotels that I so often forced stay in on my travels. My room was beautifully decorated with good quality linens and amenities which contributed to a relaxing and comfortable overnight stay. My visit was topped off by a scrumptious breakfast served by Lizzy who was charming and hospitable."
