About Oakhouse No.1 Hotel

Best Luxury Hotel CotswoldsWe decided to end our business and go travelling with our young son, in all for 11 years. We eventually returned to settle back in the beautiful Cotswolds after living in many different parts of the world.


Oak House No.1 is alive with things that reflect our interest in art, decor and style, interesting objects gathered from far away places like India, Bali, Bangkok, France and Italy, as well as many special pieces from London galleries. If your interests are in art and decor your eyes will be bombarded with many amazing things, old and new, contemporary and antique.


Oak House No.1 is not just a luxury hotel in the Cotswolds, but a place alive with unusual artefacts, pictures, interesting tales, fun and wonderful memories.
