Unique & Unusual Places To Stay.

From boutique hostels & narrowboats, to castles & temples. Never stay anywhere second rate again!

Gloucestershire comprises of part of the Cotswold Hills, part of the flat fertile Valley of the River Severn, and the entire Forest of Dean, so understandably full of things to do, places to stay, good food to eat and many, many places to explore! Take a look at our unique & unusual places to stay in Gloucestershire and be inspired by some really fabulous retreats, still focused on luxury and memorable experiences.

The West Banqueting House in Chipping Campden has a large barrel vaulted chamber on the ground floor and a hearth at either end, with underfloor heating makes it particularly comfortable.

The first floor chamber yields the only fragments of Jacobean frieze of the rich and elegant plasterwork and panelling that must once have adorned all the buildings on this site. Yet this banqueting house was converted at an early stage for humbler domestic accommodation and it may well have been the house of William Harrison, steward to Lady Juliana Hicks and a key player in the mystery known as The Campden Wonder. It is a two-storey building with external doors at both levels. One of the many unique places to stay in Gloucestershire.
