Stairs - although our hosts were happy to help with bags.
Location - neither rural, nor town centre. Very peaceful but you need a car - and I would stay outside of town next time as there are prettier towns than Cheltenham in the area.
This gorgeous Georgian manor is a delightful place to stay. We had a very comfortable room, huge bed, amazing bathroom (I want one like that!). Common areas - dining, living, and drawing room - are all spacious and nicely furnished. A very comfortable base for exploring the Cotswolds. Nice breakfast. Pittsville park & the historic pump room is across the road. Town centre and restaurants are 15-20 minutes walk, 5-10 minutes drive. The owners were lovely, and there were toys and play equipment inside and in the garden for kids.
