A little about the history of this house. Built in the 1840's and known as "The Hill Studio", this house used to be split into two smaller properties before being combined. The unusual frontage of the house will give you a clue as to the history, as it was a paint shop and painters studio. We have two friendly cats who potter around, so you may bump into them from time to time. Please don't let them into your room if possible.

House Rules

This is a quiet house, so if you like that kind of atmosphere then this is the place to be. As this is a period property, floor boards creak as you may expect and there is a real sense of history. We hope that you will treat our house nicely!

It was an absolute pleasure staying with Gill and Mark. Gills communication was great and when I arrived I was greeted with a cup of tea and a slice (or two) of cake. Gill showed me around and the room and bathroom was just as beautiful as the pictures. Their home had great character and their company was delightful. Gills recommended a few restaurant spots and introduced me to her lovely cats. I loved the area and Gill was a fantastic host making me feeling very welcome and at ease. I would 110% recommend Gill and her home. Thanks again Gill. I hope to stay with you soon :)

Gill was an outstanding host - as well as being greeted with tea, cake and conversation, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast (and more excellent conversation) after a good night's sleep in a very comfortable bed. Who could ask for more?

More hospitable hosts you won't find. Gill and Mark are remarkable people; warm, welcoming and extremely interesting. Their home is delightful, beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. After a long journey, I couldn’t have wished for a more amazing oasis to rest and recuperate. Quality bedding, welcome cookies, coffee and tea, even little remote control beside your bed for the lighting options. Bathroom was exquisite, bubble bath at the ready… Gill left no stone unturned. Charming is an understatement, of both the room and the hosts. Could not imagine a better place to stay. Thank you very much Gill and Mark for making me feel so welcome.

What a great place! The front looks so unassuming but once inside you'll find it's such an interesting building and Gill was kind enough to give us a tour of all the various hidden spaces! Gill and her husband were excellent hosts. Nothing was too much trouble for Gill (she even gave me a whole shelf in her fridge because I had a picnic for the next day). The bedroom and bathroom were very clean and well equipped to meet needs of refreshment or relaxation. The proximity of the house to the main street through Harrow-on-the-Hill was fantastic and we strolled an easy distance up the road for dinner. Would heartily recommend.
