COVID - 19 UPDATE:
Stay Safe from Coronavirus.
The Hidden House is committed to keeping your safety in mind.
We may be keeping a respectful distance, but that does not mean we cannot be sociable.
Our operating procedures provide as safe an environment as we can and allows us to deliver the friendly personal service we have become known and rated for.

Our policies follow government guidelines.

Summary:
• We have implemented procedures that respect social distancing without being anti-social.

• We have reduced the chance of the virus ever entering the property by allowing people who are concerned they have the virus to cancel and re- schedule free of charge.

• Our check in procedure allows the option of self-check in and therefore promotes safe distancing but also giving you the information needed for a great stay.

• Basic self-service breakfast will still be provided. Time slots will operate.

• We have always had very high cleaning standards (please see reviews from past guests) but we will be elevating this further- allowing extra careful sanitising in areas that you are most likely to touch such as light switches and door handles etc. We are stepping up our cleaning regime.

• We have increased airflow throughout as is recommended to dissipate water droplets that can transmit the virus

• Sanitising stations are located throughout the property

• Payment will be made online and prior to stay commencing

We have also reduced the amount of bookable rooms at the property .

A more detailed explanation of our policies and a risk assessment is available. Please ask at the enquiry stage for more details.

Please note- the walk into Stroud is approx 15 mins downhill for average fitness. The walk back from town is not a steep hill but its long and takes about 20 mins. Taxis or a Bus are recommended for those guests less able bodied (I can further advise on this).

Please note that a very handsome Basset Hound Pup called 'Berkeley' or 'Barkers' is in residence at the property. Berkeley is still a pup, is big and very friendly but can get a tad over excited. Families with young children may wish to take note of this. He is not allowed upstairs near the bedrooms. Please take note before booking if you have an issue with dogs, allergies or this particular breed. Berkeley lives downstairs on the ground floor and sleeps at night in the study (also on the ground floor).

Quiet time at the house is from 11pm- 7am. Guests are welcome to come back to the house after 11pm but must keep noise to a minimum for the sake of other guests and myself.

A set of keys will be provided to guests, but must be returned at the end of the stay or charges will be incurred.

Please note that some elements mentioned below may not be open due to Covid-19, or may be operating at a limited capacity/ doing an alternative take-away service. During lockdown, I have had the chance to do many more walks from the house and can thoroughly recommend many routes (in addition to the ones already mentioned below).

Any visitor to Stroud really needs to visit the Farmers Market on Saturday morning for takeaway food/ food stalls. Its been voted the best local market in the UK and its about to get bigger! Any visitor to Stroud really needs to visit the Farmers Market on Saturday morning for takeaway food/ food stalls. Its been voted the best local market in the UK.
Stroud is very much the country version of alternative places such as Camden or Shoreditch- it’s a quirky, quixotic, bohemian town with very strong community roots and local free trade shops including art and vintage shops. It has a HUGE amount of artists living in and around the environs. It was voted as one of Britains best places to live in a recent Sunday times article. Stroud is indeed, incredibly special and definitely embodies the hidden bohemian more authentic experience of the Cotswolds. There are always festivals or events, from literature, art to theatre taking place throughout the year.
The many mills are part of Stroud’s Industrial Past and house a bustle of workspace sharing co-operatives, artists studios, vintage shops, upholstery and jewellery making workshops. Many guests visit to take part in these workshops to experience this rich arts and crafts heritage. A short 10 minute walk from the house is a wonderfully authentic real ale typically British pub called ‘The Crown and Sceptre’- call in for a great Sunday roast.
Other notable nearby establishments to visit are The Subscription Rooms, Giffords Circus, Westonbirt Arboretum, Stroud Valley Artspace, Pangolin Gallery, Hawkwood College (for workshops). Minchinhampton Common is a beautiful common ground area where cattle roam freely across the roads and amongst golfers
There are many walks right from the doorway of the house. The Heavens is one beautiful area to explore as is the Stroud micro Brewery Walks to Rodborough Common across the Valley with great views of the river Severn and Wales and a visit to Winstones Ice Cream factory is a must. The Cotswold Way is near by, as are walks to Slad to visit the Woolpack, frequented by the famous author Laurie Lee. For those requiring a flatter walk – take in the beautifully restored Cotswold Canals with access from the towpath to unique pubs and cafes.

Painswick, the queen of the Cotswolds, Tetbury, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath and Bristol are also definitely worth a visit and are all within easy driving distance from Stroud.

'The Maverick Lodger' Artistic and Sporty- in equal measure. Love skiing (am a ski instructor for a couple of companies in Italy and Switzerland). When not throwing myself down mountains, I have worked for 15 years at an internationally renowned arts centre doing events for a wide range of different arts disciplines and am a trustee of an arts centre in Stroud. I also sit on the Stroud Tourist Forum- a Forum that provides support and advice to help me get the most of the area for guests. I come from a stage management background having worked on the west end and toured the UK. I also have sung in a few bands and achieved an album with the second band. Ive just completed a part time Masters in Arts Management. I LOVE creative tourism. I attend as many arts happenings as I can in London and Stroud and am lucky enough to have lots of artist friends who are an inspiration to me. Im well travelled, having been to the Cook Islands, Fiji, most of Europe, USA (East, South and West Coast), Malaysia, Thailand, Bali, Lombok, Bermuda and Roatan in Honduras. I started taking lodgers into my home in 1999 and switched to airbnb in 2014- achieving and keeping superhost status all this time. My second property in Stroud commenced bookings last December. My life motto is to make the most of living in the present and treat others how you would like to be treated yourself. My job has involved top level customer experience, anticipating audience needs before they know what they want themselves and I use this experience to ensure that I anticipate guests needs in a creative way. Airbnb has been fantastic experience - I've enjoyed learning about guests different backgrounds/cultures and some nights have wiled away the hours discussing various subjects. Love it!I know Ive succeeded at good hosting when guests come back several times to stay. Do check out my business page too by searching for "The Maverick Lodger"

I reside at the property and am more than happy to provide a ‘tea and cake’ welcome for guests and help them with information and ideas about the area to make their stay as fulfilling as possible. I have lived in London for 20 years as an Arts Event Manager/ Theatre Stage Manager and know all about the importance of solid customer experience in arts venues. I am trustee of the Subscription Rooms (the local venue in Stroud) and like to keep tabs on all the interesting events happening in and around the area. My airbnb in London has taken in over 300 guests since 2014 and I have been a Super Host continuously for the last four years having received wonderful reviews. I am also on the Stroud Tourist Forum. Guests that book my Camden Property in London after booking this listing will receive a discount.
Occasionally, I have to head back to London but guests will be given self check in details if I am unable to check them in personally.
