A Cotswold Getaway

Hey friends,

We’ve just been away sans kids for a birthday/Christmas getaway!  We practically ran out of the door, suitcase in hand for a night away in the Cotswold Regency Town of Cheltenham.

It’s a town we know well having many friends & countless visits over the years. We’ve always stayed with friends, this time we decided to find a hotel, rather last minute as a treat.  We didn’t take into account that is was a Race Weekend though & everywhere I tried was booked! Hubby took over & boy am I glad he did!

Ravenhurst B & B is new, I absolutely believe that’s the only reason we got a room here, because once the secret is out I guarantee it’ll be booked up months in advance!!

Ravenhurst House

Can you imagine my face when we drew up to this house? Uh huh, jaw to the ground moment, the boy did good.

I don’t think I’ve ever stayed anywhere so nice, the house is beautiful.

The home decor is tasteful, modern with a Banksy feel but not too cold, a lovely mix of personal & designer pieces! I especially loved the painted Ercol chairs. A look I’ll be stealing for my Ercol chairs so watch out for that next year!

The welcome here is very warm. Alex is the lady of the house & we met Andy soon after.

As it was such a busy weekend we hadn’t factored in getting a taxi to our restaurant to celebrate our friend Lady Corrie’s 30th (yup, a real lady). We alerted Andy & Alex to the fact that all the taxis were booked up & Andy immediately offered us a lift, no problems. You all know how much I appreciate above & beyond!

The room we were given is HUGE! We stayed in Fig Tree, with a little hall in the middle & a bathroom with underfloor heating, a massive shower head & Orla Kiely complimentary bathroom bits.  The bed was extremely comfortable & again massive, I lost hubby in it. Fantastic!

The hospitality continued with a fry up English breakfast, toast, juice & an endless supply of coffee & tea.  Very much needed after an evening celebrating with a lot of red wine!

We left feeling very happy that everywhere else had been booked. It’s a little gem!! Look at the website here or follow them on Twitter

Until the next time friends
Have a great day!
