We stayed at Ashton House for two nights September 23/24th. We had to come back to Painswick and Aston House after staying here while walking the Cotswold Way last year. Philippa and Steve are very welcoming, warm and connecting hosts. Their old home is beautiful with large exposed beams and natural aging in every nook and cranny. Breakfast is in... More

Philippa could not have been a more accommodating host, right down to bringing our forgotten phone charger to our next venue! She obviously loves meeting and engaging people, and she and her husband, Steve, seemed like old friends in less than 24 hours; we could not have felt more at home. Though what a "home"! A charmingly renovated, 400-year old... More

Philippa and Steve are fantastic hosts at Aston House. They treated us like old friends and shared stories of the area and town. I would love to spend more time there. The room was very comfortable and if you want to learn more of the history of the area, just ask Steve! Breakfast served with special attention to requests and... More

While walking the Cotswold Way we stayed at Ashton House for one night. The 400 year old home is simply amazing. On arrival, we were met by the lieutenant, Stephen who said that he was not the expert and that Philipa was out and he offered us tea. We wanted to get out and see the town of Painswick, so... More

This was my first experience staying at a B&B and I was not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed by Philipa. The tea that was waiting for us was much appreciated as we had just flown a long distance then drove on the narrow roads to Painswick. Philipa gave us recommendations for pubs that we could get something to eat. The... More

My wife and I had walked a comforable 12 miles from Seven Springs to Painswick on the 4th day of our Cotswold Way walk. At Painswick we stayed at Ashton House, which is a very old terraced house with lots of character. Our host Philipa was extremely friendly and welcoming. The facilities at the Ashton House are basic; creaky and... More

Ashton House is right on the Cotswold Way as it runs through the beautiful town of Painswick. Phllipa and Stephen were welcoming hosts, serving us tea in front of an open fire when we arrived on a rainy afternoon. Breakfast the next morning was also served in front of the fire. Our hosts directed us to a nearby pub for... More

We had one night in Painswick and stayed here. Fantastic! Our hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly, and the house is something else. It was filled with character and beautifully decorated. We even shared a celebratory glass of wine with our hosts following our son landing his first job. Lovely hosts and a fantastic house in a beautiful place. Highly... More

This was a true home away from home. A beautiful traditional stone Cotswolds house with large bedrooms and lovely hosts who were very helpful and made the six of us staying there feel very welcome. Breakfast was a highlight, we sat on a large table all together. There was everything you could think of including a full English breakfast every... More
