Looking for an ideal country escape, just for two?

The Bolt Hole is exactly that. Handily placed between  Minchinhampton and the extensive Commons, it offers a quiet and luxuriously comfortable place to unwind and sample the delights of The Cotswolds. 

The owners, Biddy and Tony, ran a 5 Star Gold rated bed and breakfast business close to Salisbury for 10 years, and have used their considerable experience to design and equip The Bolt Hole to ensure that guests have a really enjoyable stay.

We were delighted to have been awarded 4 Star Gold for self-catering in 2013, as an indication of the extra effort which we make on our guests’ behalf.

The conversion of The Bolt Hole was completed in Spring 2013, and it has now completed several seasons as a self- catering holiday cottage. It offers a modern ground-floor kitchen diner with adjoining shower  room, and a very spacious sun-soaked open-plan sitting room and bedroom on the first floor.

Guests have sole use of a private garden for dining, or just soaking up the sun, as well as off-street parking.

Minchinhampton is one of The Cotswolds’ best kept tourism secrets, offering all the charm of a small market town without coach loads of tourists The picturesque centre of the old town is just a five-minute walk away.

We are delighted that The Crown Inn has reopened in the middle of the village after a five-year closure, providing food and drink within a short walk

A  welcome basket of home-produced and local produce will be provided for guests, containing fresh milk, bread, butter, cheese and eggs, and a few extra treats.

If you want to pre-order food from a supermarket for delivery the morning of your arrival, just let us know and we will unpack it for you. You can then settle in quickly.

Tony and Biddy live in Box Lane Barn, right next to The Bolt Hole, and are on hand seven days a week to answer questions and to help you plan your stay so that you make the most of your vacation in The Cotswolds.
