The Old Surgery

The Old Surgery at Tetbury is a contemporarily styled luxury holiday house owned by photographer and artist Maria Stengard-Green and hung with her original work. This Elizabethan townhouse has been called ‘the grooviest house’ by Conde Nast Traveller, been selected forCountry Life’s ‘What to do and Where to Go in 2013’ guide as well as being acclaimed in Red MagazineThe Guardian and The Times. Ideal for holidays, breaks or civilised hen parties it is only 1hr 30m from London. The Old Surgery features an original Dining Hall with a magnificent working open fireplace, cozy sitting room and vaulted drawing room that opens out onto a sunny high-walled Provence style courtyard garden; and with great walks on the doorstep, it is pet friendly.

A rare townhouse in a prime Cotswolds location with an imposing stone fireplace in the dining hall provides manor-house grandeur. The Old Surgery is a subtle blend of its unique heritage and 21st-century design flourishes – from the Dalsouple rubber flooring in a cool monochrome bathroom to the neatly stacked showpiece logs in the dining hall room. But according to one generous reviewer “it’s the impressive modern artworks scattered throughout that really give the decor gravitas.” The Old Surgery has featured on Escape to The Country and in 25 Beautiful Homes, The GuardianRed Magazine and Country Life.

The Old Surgery boasts an elegant vaulted drawing room that opens out into both the beamed dining hall and onto the Provence style courtyard garden. The kitchen breakfast room features a six-ring double oven range cooker and is equipped for even the most ambitious amateur chef.

There are four bedrooms, two doubles with their own en-suite facilities, a twin bedroom and a fourth bedroom with a small double bed and a single bed. We also have a Guest Bed that can be placed in either of the two doubles. There is a family bathroom and separate downstairs cloakroom. We are baby-friendly providing two cots and two high chairs.

The Old Surgery is equipped with iPod docks, flat screen televisions and DVD players, unlimited WiFi Broadband, a DVD, CD and book library, children’s toy box, Wii and a great selection of traditional games.

The Provence style high walled courtyard is planted with climbing Rose and Clematis, Box and Lavender. The German beer-hall table seats ten and the charcoal painted settle and wicker sofa are set around the contemporary fire-pit.
