Most luxury hotels in the Cotswolds are just not like Oak House No.1, this guest review sums up what we are all about :
“ When Alice arrived in wonderland and Doctor Parnassus invented his imaginarium, they must have been here. Where designer opulence collides with creature comforts, where art, creativity, rock and roll and inspiration drips from the walls, where glitz and glamour meet tradition and taste. Receive the warmest of welcomes from the wildest and most wonderful couple. A stand alone experience, second to none”. Jon, Uckfield.

In a wonderful part of the Cotswolds, Oak House No.1 is perfectly placed for events like Badminton Horse Trials or Polo at Cirencester Park Polo Club. We have memberships at Cirencester Park Polo Club which we are happy to loan guests who would like to sample a match. More often than not you will see Prince William at close quarters playing a match, whilst Prince Charles plays at the Beaufort Polo Club just a few minutes away. In the winter we have Hunter wellies and thick woolly socks available in all sizes for lovely winter walks across the fields to the warm fire of a local country pub. If you wish to take a gentle day trip in your car around the local Cotswolds villages (a must) we have a hand written guide taking in the best places to go, things to see and do, good places to eat etc. We are situated right in the heart of Tetbury, though we are quiet and peaceful in the corner of the finest Georgian square with a choice of restaurants just a short stroll away.
A recent feature in the Guardian newspaper goes a long way to explain why we feel Tetbury is a great place not only to visit but also to live.
“What’s going for it? As a vision of Britain, Tetbury is terribly seductive. I could fall for Tetbury. We could all fall for Tetbury. A town like they used to make them. A town untroubled much by the travails of modern life, like suburbs. A town seemingly composed entirely of the kind of picturesque, biscuit/fudge-coloured Cotswold buildings you see on biscuit tins and fudge packets. A town seemingly without troublesome poor people: Tetbury has been rich since the 15th-century wool trade. A town of antiques shops, boutique B&Bs and purveyors of chutneys and biccies: with cheese shops, butchers, bakers – is that a candlestick maker? ….. Yes, that’s Prince Charles’s shop, the Highgrove deli, over there. HRH Charlie is lord of the manor, though, alas, rarely on the tills at the shop. Some say Tetbury inspired Poundbury: both seem to exist in some kind of lovely la-la land”.
HRH Prince Charles’ Highgrove Garden Tour near to Oak House No.1
Remember, if you are visiting Tetbury for Prince Charles’ Highgrove House Garden Tour, we are perfectly placed just a few minutes away and other luxury hotels in the Cotswolds simply aren’t like Oak House No.1. The wonderful Garden tour at HRH Prince Charles’ home is available from May through to September – you can even book a “Champagne and Afternoon Tea Package” to make the afternoon even more special. Tetbury itself has a fine choice of restaurants and plenty of antiques shops and foodie emporiums to keep most visitors busy and all just a moments walk from our door. As Prince Charles is our near neighbour he is quite often seen here in Tetbury, sometimes driving himself (with plain clothed police nearby) and Charles and Camilla recently turned on the Tetbury Christmas lights followed by a casual walkabout through the town shaking hands with the locals and visiting the local shops.
Oak House No.1 is also just a few minutes away from Westonbirt Arboretum, famed for its Autumn Colours and the biggest Japanese Maple collection in the UK. The arboretum plays host to music concerts during the summer months and recent artists have included, Catherine Jones, Paul Weller, Jesse J, Blondie, JLS, Jools Holland and in 2016 Sir Tom Jones..
If you are looking for a luxury Cotswolds hotel that is packed with intriguing objects, wonderful artworks, fabulous furnishings and a warm welcome, Oak House No.1 is the choice for you.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
