The Central England/Cotswolds region
Cheltenham, the very mention of this grand old town conjurs up not only images of gracious georgian houses but also of superb thoroughbred horses thundering round the town's famous Prestbury Park race-course. Cheltenham is never more alive that it is each March when the race-course plays host to the famous Gold Cup horse race. Then, many thousand of visitors flock to the town and especially racegoers from Ireland, all hoping that this illustrious meeting will indeed bring them - the luck of the Irish.
The life of this town began as a typical Cotswold village but owing to the discovery on a mineral spring a Pump room was built here in 1738. The town then received the personal approval of George 111 and within a few short years architects were commissioned to build a new town. The result was wide boulevards and gracious houses that attracted many people of wealth and education to settle here. They came as much for the medicinal properties of the waters as for Cheltenhams' fashionable elegance. Many of the beautiful buildings in the town are attributed to Papworth, and Forbes designed and built the Pump room - both these men were celebrated Architects of their day.
The composer, Gustav Holtz, was a pupil at the towns Grammer school. His family home still exists today and is instantly recognised by the brass commemorative plaque displayed to the front of the building.
Cheltenham has wonderful gardens, flowers bloom here in great profusion presenting the visitor with a riot of colour. There are wonderful expanses of grass on which to sit and while away an hour or two enjoying the music played by visiting bands.
The famous promenade is full of intoxicating shops, all with a vast array of merchandise. In fine weather many of the cafes and pubs place tables and chairs outside thus giving the town a 'continental' atmosphere.
From its humble origins Cheltenham has developed into a busy, thriving, cosmopolitan town which is a joy to visit at any any time of the year.
Charlton Kings is just off the main A40 and is the London road side of Cheltenham. There are fantastic walks all round this area, with the Cotswold Way a main feature. There are some great pubs in the old part of the village and a new Indian restaurant on the main A40.
Dowdeswell Reservoir is literally just up the road from the chalet and in Springtime you can see the toads crossing the road, look for the special road sign!
The tourist villages of Bourton on the Water, The Slaughters, Stow and Cirencester are easily reached from this side of town.

"Beautiful setting, quiet, well-equipped... but near to town."
I booked this place for my wife and I to have a weekend in Cheltenham. Instead of a B&B I wanted something a little different and this was lovely. It is really quiet and it feels like you're in t… More

"Small but beautifully formed!"
An excellent stay in a perfect location. Just what I needed when visiting the UK for just 3 days. The Lodge was clean, tidy and well equipped, perfect for me alone. The owners were helpful but unobtrusive. The location was a delight for me.......countryside, chickens and horses-wonderful! I would definitely look to stay again if I were to return to Cheltenham for any reason.

"Lovely place for a city/country retreat."
Great little backyard cottage. Close to town but far enough away to get away from it all. Cosy and warm. Owners were lovely!
Thank you for your positive comments. We will be happy to welcome you back.

Very cosy place with everything you need for a nice weekend away in a stunning countryside. The landlords were very helpful but also very laid back. We even enjoyed eggs from the chicken behind the cottage :-)
Thank you for your kind comments. Hope to see you again soon.
