Press Review: We are delighted to have been included in the Guardians top ten Hotels and B&Bs in Bristol. Please read the article here >

‘The Boutique has had an exciting makeover and now all three of our gorgeous Bespoke Double rooms are en-suite’.

The Boutique is a beautiful and rare combination of style, quality, and glamour mixed with warmth and comfort. A meticulously crafted and carefully thought out guesthouse with all the luxury of a boutique hotel, it is a special place lovingly created by Sadie, an artist, designer and collector, to give inspiration and sanctuary. Interesting and unexpected, it has been designed to delight with its attention to detail, boutique style, and collection of wonderful curios and retro finds. An extraordinary place that has been built by Sadie and Peter, inspired by their upbringing in the generation of ‘den builders’, the ethos has been simply to build somewhere, we would love to go; Somewhere bespoke and extra special, friendly and relaxed, tranquil and visually exciting… (An extra bonus if it has you coming away rejuvenated and reconnected to humanity a little bit!)

The Boutique has expanded over the past two years to include its three beautiful sisters, our trio of showman trailer caravans, on a farm in Wiltshire for the ultimate unwind and escape; gathered and restored with the same attention to detail and love that has been poured into The Boutique, whilst at the same time carefully maintaining their character and soul. They provide the ultimate getaways to indulge in silence, sky, laughter, and peace, each one with a warming wood burner for a wonderful retreat.

Please see the retreats page for more information: soon to be updated with more images and info or make an enquiry, we are currently taking bookings for May 2015 onwards.
