Reasons for trip

This is a secluded charming old house on Stinchcombe Hill above the small town of Dursley. The route is very scenic across the golf course with wonderful views across to the River Severn. Hosts Jane & Graham are most hospitable and made us welcome on arrival with a pot of coffee and scrumptious chocolate cake. Our “Room with a View” did indeed have a lovely view and although on the small side was cosy with a comfortable bed and a lovely modern bathroom. Not all rooms have en suite but work is ongoing in this respect.

The house is full of character from the comfortable lounge, where two friendly Jack Russells spend a lot of their time and are always up for a game of “Fetch”, to the large dining room overlooking the garden. All eight guests sat at one long table for breakfast and it was pleasant to converse with them about the places of interest nearby. The food was delicious with plenty of choice. They have pigs, ducks and chickens so there is plenty of fresh food and my husband really enjoyed his fresh duck eggs.

There are good attractions in the area. Dursley itself has a choice of pubs and cafes and the quaint town of Tetbury, home to Prince Charles, is not far away for antique lovers. Slimbridge is a really good day out but having already visited previously we didn’t go again, although it must be much improved now.

This was a quiet relaxing break and we enjoyed the homely atmosphere of this welcoming Bed and Breakfast.
