A Little About The House and the Area
Oak House No.1 is situated n the heart of Tetbury, voted the best market town in the Cotswolds and is perfectly placed for local events like the internationally famous Badminton Horse Trials or Polo at either Beaufort or Cirencester Park Polo Clubs.

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 small tour in your car (one day) which takes in some lovely Cotswolds villages we have a hand written guide of the best places to go, things to see and do, good places to eat etc. As we are situated right in the heart of Tetbury there’s a choice of restaurants just a few moments from our door, but Oak House No.1 is quiet and peaceful in the corner of a fine Georgian square. The main street is full of individual boutiques interior design and antique shops, indeed Tetbury has long been regarded as the antiques capital of the Cotswolds.

Tetbury and the Area
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. 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. No other Cotswolds luxury hotels can provide the same level of opulence and style of Oak House No.1 making us the perfect choice to make your Highgrove visit even more special. In fact one guest commented on Trip Advisor that the real gem in the Cotswolds is not Prince Charles’s Highgrove House but Oak House No.1, high praise indeed !
Cotswolds luxury hotel, 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. We have enjoyed several concerts here and must say that it’s a wonderful experience and so perfectly English ! We saw Paul Weller and others, the event was so relaxed with families having picnics and people just lazing in deckchairs in the fields enjoying the early evening summer sun, a great way to spend the evening in glorious countryside with great music.

For us the opinions of our guests is what really matters :
Most Cotswolds luxury hotels are not really like Oak House No.1, this guest review briefly sums up just what Oak House No.1 is 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.
