I fell in love with the beautiful Cotswolds on my first visit almost 20 years ago. Since then I have been back many times, staying at a variety of hotels, pubs, guest houses and friend’s homes and I hoped that one day I would be able to live there myself. When my family circumstances changed I decided to take a new direction in my life and set up a business in the Cotswods where I have always enjoyed spending so much time. I am so thrilled to be able to bring my dreams to a reality and to share this with my guests.


The first time I stepped up to The Loft, I was bowled over by its quirkiness and charm. I really enjoy how it offers both the chance to be in the middle of stunning Stow-on-the-Wold with its antique shops, restaurants, pubs and also to be able to get away from it in the hideaway that is The Loft. It had already been lovingly updated so I set about furnishing it with the kind of quality furnishings, bedding and equipment that I appreciate when I am a guest.

Little Gem cottage was in a very bad state of repair and so I was able to put my mark on it and turn it into a delightful home from home with every mod con. I put in a brand new kitchen and log burner for cosy dinners and a bathroom with roll-top bath and walk in shower for maximum relaxation upstairs. I wanted to create a simple oasis in the enclosed patio garden so that guests (and their dogs) could make the most of any good weather as well as a comfortable bed and top quality bedding for a wonderful nights sleep.


Finally came The Bolt Hole. I fell in love with its unusual history, fabulous views, and sense of space With a wealth of walks on the doorstop and in the heart of Winchcombe, it just needed some additions and updating to turn it into a delightful bolt hole. I have tried to create a special place to stay that provides the facilities and luxury you would expect on your holiday.
