This was our third visit to Byfield House and our only regret is that it will be our last as Jill and Brett are moving on shortly. We stayed in the Garden Room each time and took full advantage of the courtyard and glorious (and slightly quirky) garden. The room remains full of interesting (and again, slightly quirky) objets d'art... More

Brett and Jill are fabulous hosts and great to spend time with. I've never experienced service like it - they were kind, generous and fun what more could you need? Byfield House is beautiful and in such a great location - we had a lovely weekend and cannot speak too highly of the place. If you need to stay in... More

From the very first we knew we were in for something special. We arrived to be shown into our room and invited into the garden so the property/area could be explained. Around 1 hour later after 2 bottles of wine and the most engaging conversation with Jill & Brett we couldn't believe our luck at being able to stay in... More

From the first meeting until leaving we were made to feel so welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and Brett and Jill went way beyond any normal expectations. Ideally placed to tour local Cotswold beauty spots, we can't speak too highly of Byfield House.

We have a rule in our travelling lives that we won’t visit any place more than once lest we should be disappointed the second time. But this time we just had to break our own rule. We couldn’t resist coming back to Painswick to soak up more of Brett and Jill’s marvellous hospitality. Having promised ourselves one frosty morning back... More

Compelled by the incredible reviews & intrigued to meet Jill & Brett! Quite simply the warmest & most welcoming response I've ever had - before we'd even booked. Our intended dates were busy but Jill went above and beyond to accommodate my partner and I with our 10 month yr old Vizsla. We stayed in the garden room - which... More

I was slightly puzzled when I decided to book Byfield House how they managed to have had 375 or so reviews, and not a single one negative, neutral or in fact less than excellent. Having stayed there now for three days, I now understand. First of all the hosts, Brett and Jill, are wonderful. They greet you like old friends,... More

Byfield House is a lovely two room B&B in Painswick. The hosts, Jill and Brett, go out of their way to make you feel special in every way. My wife and I stayed in the main floor suite, King bed, in room shower, fully supplied with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc. Jill and Brett stock the full kitchen with all sorts... More

I really can't think of anything to add about how amazing it is here that hasn't already been said over the last 6 years including our previous reviews. We love to holiday & rest here and look forward to staying at Jill & Brett's new venture around the corner. Sad that this is the last time we will stay at... More

I have titled this "LOVE" because that is what has permeated the whole experience in the Cotswolds. It is essential to show an area in its best light to love it and to have an exceptional bed and breakfast experience to love people and Jill and Brett exhibit those traits in abundance. They are the most gracious of hosts to... More
