Absolutely superb situation with magnificent scenery, this impressive mellow stone Cotswold farmhouse offers cosy, comfortable, well equipped and spacious accommodation.
Bedrooms are en suite or with private facilities, TV’s, beverages, armchairs and many other homely extras.
There is a beautiful guest lounge, attractive dining room and a large well tended garden to relax in and enjoy the views across the countryside towards Winchcombe.
The farm itself is just south of Winchcombe. You approach it down a half mile tree-lined drive from the tiny Hamlet of Postlip with its 14th century Manor House and Tythe Barn. Absolute peace and quiet are guaranteed, yet we are less than five minutes from Winchcombe, in itself a beautiful yet unspoilt small cotswold town.
Sudeley Castle, reputed to be one of the finest small Castles in the country, is only five minutes away on the edge of Winchcombe. There are numerous eating places in the locality, all serving great food. We are very centrally placed for visiting all that the Cotswolds have to offer. Stanway, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and The Slaughters are just a few of the villages close by.
Further afield and to the north we have Stratford upon Avon and then on to the medieval castle of Warwick, only a 50 minute drive away.
To the east lies Blenheim Palace the home of the late Winston Churchill and now the home of the present Duke and Duchess of Marlborough. Both this and Warwick Castle give two terrific days of sightseeing.
To the south we have the lovely town of Cheltenham, noted for its beautiful regency buildings and great shops. Further on is Bath, another city noted for its Georgian architecture, and Roman baths.
To the west lies Tewkesbury with its Abbey and ancient alleyways and beyond that the Malvern Hills. The whole area has to be one of the most scenic in England.
ostlip is very much a family farm, run by sons Richard and Edward. The Farmhouse B&B side is also a family affair with myself (Valerie) and Richard and Edward also taking a very active part.
We have excellent off road parking and guests are welcome to walk around the farm, lambing time is between February and April and is always popular with the visitors.
Sheep and a Beef suckler herd graze the surrounding pastures which slope up to the top of Cleeve Hill. Also adjacent to the farm are 2000 acres of ancient common land, giving superb walking and also boasting the local 18 hole Golf Course. Horse riding is also very close at hand, all through fields and woods (no roads).
Good traditional english breakfasts are served with plenty of atmosphere.
We look forward to meeting our visitors from all over the world as well as the United Kingdom and judging from the number of repeat booking and recommendations, we feel that guests must have thoroughly enjoyed their stay at Postlip Hall Farm. Why not come and try for yourselves?
