Luxury Cotswolds Hotel
Oak House No.1, is a luxury hotel in the Cotswolds, Gloucestershire, situated in beautiful Tetbury & offers guests a completely unique stay. Whilst there’s no disguising the sumptuous and opulent styling of the interiors of our award winning boutique hotel, our main wish is that guests feel comfortable in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and, most importantly, leave with an experience to remember.
The Sunday Times 2018 said … “luxury hotel in the Cotswolds, Oak House No.1 has become a celebrity bolt hole”. It has included us as one of their “100 ULTIMATE hotels in the UK”. Our boutique hotel has hosted many actors, rock stars, politicians and even royalty over the years, but we hope that no matter who the guest, your stay here is as wonderful for each and everyone.
TATLER 2019 says … “this flamboyant gem is like nowhere else. A little bit rock’n’roll, a little bit country classic, it’s a full on surprise in the prettiest market town in the area. Everywhere you look there is some eye catching candy: origninal Andy Warhols on the walls, traditional English antiques, Phillippe Starck taps, decorative treasures fro world travels, put together with flair by owner Gary Kennedy and his partner Nicola, who make impeccable and fascinating hosts. Eat breakfast communally with other guests; the atmosphere they have created is like a boho continental party of which Gertrude Stein would approve (guests have included The Stereophonics and Sir Tom Stoppard). Smart but outrageously fun”.
A Luxury Cotswolds Hotel in Tetbury
Oak House No.1 is set in the heart of beautiful Tetbury, which was voted the best market town in the Cotswolds. Not only will you experience service worthy of our 5 Star ‘Certificate of Excellence’ Award, you’ll soon discover we’re one of the best places to stay in the Cotswolds being perfectly placed for local events like the internationally famous Badminton Horse Trials and Polo at either Beaufort or Cirencester Park Polo Clubs. Of course Tetbury is known for being near to Highgrove, Prince Charles’ home and the very popular ‘Highgrove Garden Tour’ (which needs to be booked in advance).
Our hotel bedrooms have been re-designed and furnished to an exceptionally high standard and feature the world’s finest quality Italian Frette sheets, cashmere throws, free WiFi, full SKY TV package, including Sky Movies and Sky Sports Channels, a bluetooth speaker system, DVD/CD player, silver tea sets with choices of teas, coffee and hot chocolate.
You can choose the type of pillow that you prefer from the finest Siberian goose down to hypo allergenic plus choose a movie to watch in your room from our DVD library in the sitting room, after all sleep quality is of the utmost importance to ensure a good night away from home. Our rooms deliver everything that you could want and more from a boutique hotel, including tea making facilities, with a fridge including fresh milk, complimentary bottled water, soft drinks and a safe in each suite.
Our private walled garden is a quiet and secluded cosy oasis, even though we are in the heart of Tetbury. In the summer months, weather permitting you can take afternoon tea in a cosy secluded area. We’ve made the garden just as interesting as the interiors of the hotel, with different areas to relax with objects collected from as far away as Bali. For more information and photographs please select the ‘News’ heading and then scroll down and select ‘Garden’ at the top of our website.
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. HRH Prince Charles 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”.
