We are

Rather Good Stays

Think….Great locations . Chic interiors . Divine bedding . Cosy lighting .  Roaring fires . Interesting books . Quirky design . Feeling at home . Planning a return visit…

  And if it rains? It’s a pleasure to stay indoors.

What makes for a Rather Good Stay?

KNOWLEDGE: Our combined experience of almost 50 years in restoring period properties has given us a very special understanding of preserving buildings of architectural importance…without forgetting 21st century comfort.

It is often a very difficult balance to achieve, but those who stay with us agree we have cracked it. 

UNDERSTANDING: We have an instinct for the character of period buildings. No sterile interiors here…our properties speak homeliness and love. A truly soulful building should welcome you when you step through the door and stay with you when you leave.

STYLE: Our love for the aesthetic creates a true home from home. We offer you welcoming sanctuaries in areas of outstanding natural beauty such as the wild, mountainous landscapes and deep river valleys of the Welsh Border, and the pretty townscapes and honey stone villages of the Cotswolds.

Whatever appeals to you most, we hope to welcome you to a Rather Good Stay soon.
