Soak up the atmosphere at one of our historic B&Bs
Here at Boutique and Breakfast, you’ll find plenty of sleek and modern bed and breakfast accommodation, as well as many beautifully restored period B&Bs. However, some of our featured properties are so steeped in history that a stay there is a truly memorable and atmospheric experience, almost like stepping back in time, albeit it with all the ‘mod cons’ that you’d expect from a 21st century boutique B&B! Take a look at these two very different historic properties:
The Bradley is a listed town house in the centre of Regency Cheltenham offering seriously classy B&B accommodation. Full of period charm and elegance, it’s perfect for those looking for a luxurious and stylish city bolt hole. Your hosts, Chris and Sue Light, are sticklers for good old fashioned customer service and this is evident in every aspect of the way that they run The Bradley. This beautiful house has been in their family for 100 years, and has a fascinating and rich history. It has grand proportions and boasts a fine collection of antique furniture assembled by the family over three generations, as well as lots of striking objet d’art. Chris and Sue have sensitively refurbished the house, ensuring that it stays true to its Regency roots.
With its Medieval wall paintings, vaulted ceilings and exposed oak studwork, a stay at Lavenham Priory in Suffolk is a unique and magical experience. This stunning Grade 1 listed, half-timbered house dates from the 13 th century and has been perfectly preserved, yet it offers modern day luxury and home comforts. Lavenham is widely regarded as one of the finest Medieval villages in England. John Constable was educated there and Thomas Gainsborough was born in nearby Sudbury, where you’ll find the Gainsborough Museum. Some of the prettiest villages in East Anglia are within easy travelling distance.
