Painswick Hill House holds a fabulously tranquil location nestled amongst beautiful Cotswold hills, it makes the perfect base for those seeking a relaxing stay in the heart of one of the most special areas in the UK. The Georgian country house is positioned on a hillside overlooking Painswick, a quaint market town which is considered by many to be the “Queen of the Cotswolds”.

The house has been recently modernised and today seamlessly blends its original Georgian charm and character with updated, contemporary interiors and all the amenities guests could possibly need for a wonderful stay. Painswick Hill House can comfortably accommodate up to fourteen guests across five plush bedrooms, two double rooms, two triple rooms and a family room with both a double bed and bunk beds. The triple rooms can either be set up with a double bed and additional single or with three single beds making them ideal family rooms or simply a children’s room. On the ground floor is the main entertaining space, the cosy living room with its large comfy corner sofa and log burner makes the perfect place to snuggle up with loved ones and enjoy a movie night after a busy day spent exploring the Cotswold countryside. Budding chefs will relish the chance to cook up a storm in the state-of-the-art kitchen which boasts all the tools one could possibly need including an induction hob and 4 oven AGA as well as a luxurious semi-circular breakfast bar. The modern kitchen leads through to the bright morning room, the floor to ceiling glass windows allow light to stream in and enable guests to admire the great outdoors, whatever the season.

Upstairs, on the first floor, is the super-king master bedroom, those staying in this room will make use of a well-appointed bathroom with free standing bath tub. Also, on this level is the first of the triple rooms which boasts its very own private bathroom with bath and overhead shower as well the family room with en-suite shower room. On the second floor, are a further double and triple room, each of which come complete with en-suite bathrooms which benefit from baths with overhead showers.

The outside space is just as remarkable, sliding doors from the morning room lead out on to the terrace, guests will enjoy dining al fresco on a warm Summer’s evening while watching the magnificent sunsets over Painswick and the Cotswold hills. The children will love exploring and playing games in the extensive gardens, while the adults are bound to desire a soak in the luxury hot tub after a busy day spent discovering the surrounding countryside on foot.

***Please note that groups of 10 will not have access to the fifth and final family bedroom, groups of 12 will be able to use the double in this room. Groups of 14 can use all 5 bedrooms and the bunk beds. ***

What you should know…

  • There is a small pond in the garden and while there is a safety mesh in place, we recommend that small children are not left to explore alone
  • While the location is excellent, a car will be needed to reach local amenities and attractions

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

    The house and views was beautiful! It was the perfect house for my best friend’s hen do. All the rooms were lovely and the fact that there are so many bathrooms was great for all the girls!

  • Everyone was blown away with the accommodation

    on 08/08/2023

    This stay was even better than expected. We had a group of 12 for a hen party and Richard was incredibly accommodating and communicative throughout. Each bedroom had the luxury of a bathroom, the shared spaces were large and accommodating of all the guests being in the same space and Richard has thought of everything that could possibly be needed - hot tub towels, lots of kitchenware, outdoor cushions, to name a few. Richard was incredibly responsive and gave very clear instructions for every part of the stay, including useful information on how to get to the property - I would highly recommend this accommodation for anyone looking for a comfortable house with exceptional amenities and views for a large group. Thank you, Richard, for a great stay - everyone was blown away with the accommodation and it certainly made for a special hen weekend!

    on 11/06/2023

    Such a beautiful home and I’m so glad we found Painswick Hill House for our hen weekend for 11 of us girls. It’s a beautiful home with incredible views.
    House was very clean with very comfortable beds and we were also welcomed with some very thoughtful gifts which was very appreciated as well as dishwasher tablets and milk etc which is always helpful for a short stay.
    Each room had its own bathroom and every room was very spacious and Richard even catered for us all to have single beds if we wanted to.
    I’ll miss my morning coffee with the amazing view over Painswick. Definitely recommend! Thank you!

  • Gorgeous, spacious, clean and modern

    on 30/05/2023

    We organised a stay at Richard's place for my dad's birthday and it was absolutely wonderful. The house is gorgeous; well decorated, spacious, clean and modern. The garden is well manicured, big and beautiful. The hot tub was a great addition as everyone in the family loved using it during the stay. Richard and his son were very friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend this host and home for large groups of people! We will be back.

  • Amazing location

  • Wonderful stay

    on 02/04/2023

    We had a wonderful stay here and it was everything we'd hoped for and more! Beautiful surroundings with gorgeous views, very comfortable bedrooms and living spaces for inside and out. We went for a lovely walk to a nearby pub for lunch one of the days - everything was easy and relaxed. Thank you.

  • Wonderful stay

    on 14/11/2018

    We had wonderful time at Painswick House. The huge patio doors opened out to views of the picturesque Painswick and the bubbling hot tub was enjoyed almost every night! Good times were had by all.

  • Perfect birthday party

    on 20/10/2018

    We booked this house to celebrate my father’s 70th and it was the perfect location for it, nicely tucked away in the Cotswolds. The décor is to a very high standard and had everything we needed to throw a good party.

  • The House is just amazing

    on 02/10/2018

    Arrived on a Friday, 10 of us plus small child. Hot tub is fab, lovely to spend an evening in there. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. Very impressed and very happy. Amazing stay.

  • Perfect hideaway

    on 26/09/2018

    Painswick Hill House is the perfect hideaway, miles away from any huge town or city. The interiors were very modern and the kitchen/bar area was a great place to socialise.

  • Laura’s 50th

    on 11/09/2018

    The house exceeded all expectations with plenty of room for us all. The views and gardens are spectacular and the hot tub was a lovely bonus.

  • Katie’s Hen Do

    on 11/09/2018

    Thank you so much for a fabulous stay. The house is absolutely gorgeous, stunning views and had everything we needed and more to have a fun filled girlie weekend. Hot tub and grounds are absolutely perfect and Bramble the goat just was the icing on the cake ❤
    Thank you again, would definitely recommend.

  • Wonderful stay

    on 08/08/2018

    Thank you for a lovely house with a great view of Painswick. We really like going in the hot tub after breakfast and sometimes before bed. We also liked going to see the goat and feeding him the left over vegetables. We loved stroud for dinner with plenty of child friendly food and Go Ape around an hour away. That was really fun. We all loved using the Sky TV box.

  • Definitely a place to come back to.

    on 17/07/2018

    Everyone had a wonderful time in your beautiful house. Thank you for the Prosecco welcome, which we enjoyed in the hot tub. It was delightful with lovely places to eat and drink and plenty of beautiful Cotswold walks. Amazing views and OMG sunset was stunning.
