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.
“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”.

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 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 house, with different areas to relax with objects collected from as far away as Bali.
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.
For each of the day tours you will be collected by our uniformed chauffeur outside Oak House No.1 in the morning (at a time that suits you) and dropped off and collected as you wish throughout the day.
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.
Do remember if you are visiting Tetbury for Prince Charles’s Highgrove House Garden Tour Oak House No.1 is near – very close in fact, 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 your visit even more special.
Chavenage House is just 2.5 miles away from Oak House No.1 and we can highly recommend the tour of the house and grounds, indeed many guests that have stayed have really enjoyed the guided tour, praising the homeliness and expert knowledge of the family. Poldark fans will be delighted to see the house and grounds where so many of the scenes were filmed. Tours do get booked up quickly so we would recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment.
Our hotel is near Westonbirt Arboretum. located just a few minutes away from which is fame its Autumn Colours and the biggest Japanese Maple collection in the UK.
Princess Anne’s home Gatcombe Park is a few miles away and annually hosts the Gatcombe Horse Trials
