After a dreadful (6 hour!) journey from London we arrived at Pauntley Court to a warm fire, the most delicious luxury fish pie and a freshly baked Victoria sponge, just what we needed! We were the first to stay in the out-house and it was absolutely beautiful, so homely and so many sweet touches (hot water bottles in the bed- which were UNBELIEVABLY comfortable, water at the bedside, table laid, fluffy White Company towels). After an early night, my boyfriend spent the morning at the Lake and caught six rainbow trout while I went out walking across the beautiful, tranquil countryside (take a map!). We then had a massage in the bedroom by the local masseuse and went for a great meal at the Butcher's Arms.
We could not fault the house and Mark and Melissa could not have been any more accommodating, we will definitely recommend to others and return. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Pauntley Court must be one of the most enchanting houses in which to stay. It is said to be the birthplace of Dick Whittington, who travelled from here to become Lord Mayor of London. Pauntley Court has beautiful formal gardens and is situated in a stunning position. The village of Pauntley is on the edge of the Cotswolds, two and half hours drive from London. Mark and Melissa welcome you. We have two beautiful Bed & Breakfast rooms in the main house and a third bedroom in our holiday let Elinor Fettiplace, which is a self catering wing off the main house. Pauntley is a peaceful and magical place to come and relax and enjoy the beautiful gloucestershire countryside away from the strains of modern day life. ... more less
