Well-travelled Toushy looks after you with warmth – homemade brownies and tea, an elegant drawing room, inviting bedrooms with perfect white linen, and a quiet garden with pretty places to sit in the sun. Her cottage is full of beautiful things: polished antiques, portraits, flowers, lovely old beams. Breakfast is usually in the family room, with doors onto the terrace: eggs and marmalade from friends, fruits, award-winning sausages, continental choices… You’re on the edge of the Cotswolds: head out for Bredon Hill walks, Cheltenham’s festivals, shops and races, Stow’s popular Gypsy Horse Fair. Amiable Raffles the terrier is a treat too.

The room was very comfortable with a large bathroom. It would have been easy to spend all the time in the spacious room but there is also a sitting room with a welcoming stove and a breakfast room with an open fire. The location is convenient for both access and for exploring the whole of the Cotswolds. The owner is delightful company and shows impressive attention to detail and generous help with visit planning.

Pepper Cottage and Toushy are both delightful. The cottage is beautiful: thatched roof, oak beams, big comfortable bed, lovely views. Toushy takes great care of her guests and I felt well-rested and revived.

Our recent stay at Pepper Cottage was a delight. The house and gardens are beautiful, the setting retired and peaceful, and Toushy’s welcome could not have been warmer: she went out of her way to make us feel at home. The breakfast was excellent. It was a shame we could not spend longer there. We certainly hope to return the next time we are in that part of the country.

We had a wonderful stay at Pepper Cottage. Toushy is a fabulous host who cooks a fantastic brrakfast. We highly recommend staying here!

David, London

Pepper Cottage epitomises why Sawday is the "Bible" for the discerning traveller. Quite simply the best hospitality we have experienced in forty years of travelling in the U.K. Toushy is a charming host and the cottage is absolutely delightful. We will certainly be back.

Mary, Castlebar

The warmest of welcomes awaited us from Toushy and Raffles. After showing us to our large room we were invited for a refreshing cup of tea in a drawing room we could use whilst there. Unfortunately it was dark on our arrival so we were unable to fully appreciate our accommodation location until the following morning. Our breakfast was cooked to perfection and the local sausages were delicious. We could not have asked for a better hostess in Toushy and look forward to returning.

Celeste, Derby

Toushy could not have been more welcoming. Her house is beautiful and the bedroom large and very comfortable with a good bathroom and shower. The sitting room had a fire and we relaxed there in front of the fire before popping out to the nearby pub for a good dinner. Breakfast was delicious with all you could want. We would like to have stayed longer!

Fantastic B and B. Beautiful cottage, wonderful host, great in every way. We would certainly visit again.

Jill, Hertfordshire

This was a wonderful place to stay. The room was lovely and we were made to feel very at home. All the little extra things touches were brillant, buscuits,chocolate sweets and still and sparkling water in the room as well as tea and cake in the afternoon when we arrived back from our days out. The surrounding area is very pretty and can go for walks from the cottage and recieve some amazing views. I have stayed in quite a few BnBs and this one has been by far my favorite and I would definitly recomend it to family and friends and stay there again myself.

Wonderfully relaxing weekend break. Beautiful cottage and very peaceful. Toushy was an excellent hostess and we came away refreshed and rejuvenated.

Marguerite, Birmingham

Toushy is a delightful hostess and Pepper Cottage is simply idyllic. The house is a 15th gorgeous thatched cottage, the beds sublime and the gardens are a dream- beautifully landscaped with swings and slide in the orchard. Toushy made us a delicious breakfast. I wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks very much

Vanessa, London

Pepper Cottage is a gorgeous, lovely place! We (my mum, my sister and I) spent 2 nights there exploring the Cotswolds and enjoyed it so much! The rooms are cosy and incredibe lovingly decorated. The host is very nice and made us feel very welcome. I can really recommend it :-)

Sabina, Bonn

A wonderful cottage in a beautiful Cotswold village. Toushy is a charming hostess who is more than happy to entertain us with interesting stories and provide lovely tea and cakes. Breakfasts were delicious and included locally sourced produce. The cottage was homely yet exquisitely presented with every home comfort. We only stayed for two nights, but would love to return to such an original cottage and it's delightful owner.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Toushy Squires

  • Pepper Cottage nestles down a hidden lane between two orchards so we are deliciously quiet yet within a few minutes of the village. Our bubbling stream just might send you off into a deep, refreshing sleep after a good walk up the hill.
  • We are in an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ in the West Cotswolds, near Cheltenham. Enjoy meandering through charming villages of honey-coloured stone, castles full of history and inspiring gardens. Capability Brown's first commission is nearby.
  • The history of this area is told by the sheep, by cathedrals, churches and castles, and by the odd battle or two. Tewkesbury's Abbey is a bastion against time ignoring the scars of history. A key battle of the War of the Roses took place under its nose!
  • The Festivals of Racing at Cheltenham, of Literature, Science, Music and Jazz are immensely popular and enriching. Discover our version of the Chelsea Flower Show at Malvern, or watch a Morgan being made or, even, race a car up Prescott Hill!
  • The Vale of Evesham is one of England's great food producing areas where pride in its production is high. Visit Food Fairs and sample homegrown and homemade delights: new cheeses, jams and chutneys, sausages, game birds and venison!
  • Relax in an old walker's pub, perched on a hilltop with long views and amazing skies or go down to the river to find the fisherman's delight and gulp down your oysters! For something special, look for a Michelin starred restaurant - well hidden away.
