About this listing

An en-suite room in a 400 years old traditional English farm house, cosy and nice, breakfast included. Excellent reviews! Long-term committed hosts.

The space

Would you like to experience authentic rural England ?

There is not a better location than an old Saxon hamlet originally listed in the Domesday Book in the picturesque rolling hills of the North Cotswolds. There is not a better place there than a room in our 17 century farm house with its original features - beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace, AGA cooker.

Our house imaginatively called 'The Old House', was built just after the chaos caused locally by the English Civil War in the second half of the seventeenth century. It has been updated a little since then though. This is a place for those who appreciate and respect the "old".

This listing is for our Yellow Room with its own en-suite on a B&B basis.

If your party is of four, we can also offer our other listing the Pink Bedroom ie two double bedrooms. Please request a quote, if you are interested in this option.

In the summer you are welcome to enjoy our garden. We have more than 100 fruit trees in the garden of different sorts. These include many varieties of apples, pears, plums, gages, sour and sweet cherries, quinces - these are quite reliable croppers and sometimes we may have apricots, peaches and figs but that depends very much on the weather each year.

We are only 35 minutes away from Cheltenham, famous for other things the horse racing festival held in March every year - including of course the Cheltenham Gold Cup.

Interaction with guests

This is our home and so someone is likely to be around whenever you stay. We are more than happy to discuss the area and things to do as well as to point you towards things of local interest. However we do work full time and so our time is more limited during the week than at weekends.

Other things to note

We do our best to make every stay with us memorable and welcoming. Please ensure that you have the correct address for us which is The Old House, Hidcote Boyce, Chipping Campden, Glos, GL55 6LX and GPS coordinates (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Latitude and -(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) Longitude

We would ask that our guests keep us well informed, particularly about the time of arrival (to ensure one of us is here to meet you).

Our quite times are between 9pm- 8am. Living in the countryside it is difficult to keep carpets clean, so we don't enter the bedrooms with shoes. Your are welcome to leave yours in the hallway by the front door.

Please also remember that it is an old house and things may not always work in the way you expect - if you are in any doubt please just ask, we are more than happy to explain so that you have a nice relaxing time with us.
As with all shared spaces we have a no smoking rule for the house - any guest that wishes to smoke is most welcome to use the garden for this.

The Old House offers the perfect stay for a base in the Cotswolds! There is no other words to describe it, other than perfectly quaint. Very close to Chipping Camden and Hidcote gardens too. Jana's hospitality and home cooked breakfasts were extraordinary! Would definitely stay again!

This place is a delight! The farmhouse is stunning and the room is lovely with a comfy bed and an ensuite. There's not much room though so be aware if you've packed heavy. Tim and Konstantina are delightful hosts and I was very well looked after in terms of recommendations of where to go and eat. Breakfast wasn't cooked but was a great spread of cereals, toast, fresh yogurt, fruit salad and a selection of cold meats and cheese. Lovely. The house has car parking and you will need transport as it really is in the sticks. However it is a delightful place to stay and I will be back if plans allow!

From the moment we arrived Tim and Konstantina were very welcoming hosts. They have a beautiful house tucked away in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds which offers a rather splendid view. Although tucked out the way you are only a couple of miles from the local pubs which are easily accessible by car or taxi in less than 10mins. The breakfast spread was by far one of the best we have had. Great value for money, would highly recommend to anyone looking to stay in the Cotswolds.

Thanks for reading our profile.

We are Tim and Konstantina and our home has been lived in by Tim's family for more than 200 years. Probably built in the mid to late 1600's it has a long history and its own quirky charm.

We both work full-time at universities - Tim is an academic in a Business School, while I work in the Careers office. At weekends we both enjoy spending time at home with the children - just messing around is enough after a busy week. Tim loves creating things (the garden, the orchard, the pergola etc), while I love making things and making our house welcoming and cosy - I have been hooked on Pinterest for ages. We have two daughters (they are lovely!) and we love traveling with them.... although to be honest some of our most exciting trips have been without them..... Tim has been lucky enough to work in many countries and I will not list them here but we have been to many places together, including China, Peru, Turkey, the Greek islands and most of the countries in Europe. Our hope is that the next big trips will be to India, Mexico and North America.

We love having people around and our house is always open to friends and guests. It is a standard practice now to have 15+ people at home for Christmas. We are quite relaxed hosts and we do our best to give a warm welcome to all our guests.
