Elinor Fettiplace at Pauntley Court

A half-timbered house, part medieval, part Elizabethan and with an early 18th Century addition, Pauntley Court is now painted a pinkish earth colour, reflecting the iron-rich soil of the area. Wrapped around a central courtyard and surrounded by a series of fascinating formal gardens, the house glows in the evening sun, surrounded by tranquil meadows filled with cows and sheep.

"A place of great beauty and strangeness" - John Masefield, Poet Laureate. Believed to be the birthplace of Dick Whittington, Pauntley Court is magical, quite the most romantic and luxurious bed and breakfast home. Steeped in history, boasting its own dovecote, mill house, Norman church and trout pond, and set in a valley of unimaginable beauty with views towards the distant Cotswold hills, Pauntley Court offers guests an opportunity to stay in a place of rare beauty, high romance and utter tranquillity.

With its one beautiful, super king size double bedroom, Elinor Fettiplace offers spectacular views across the Old Mill Pond and the Leadon Valley below. 

Your Hosts

Having taken over the house from her mother, who created the breathtaking formal gardens, Melissa, her husband, Mark and their three children (now at boarding school) have lived at Pauntley Court since 2008.  With ponies, Flotsam and Jetsam, the Kune Kune pigs , chickens,  Batman the cat, and Wilma the terrier, this is a quintessential English family home with a difference. Melissa has thought of everything to ensure the most luxurious stay.
