In the so-called ‘Golden Valley’ of the River Frome, after negotiating twisting country lanes, you reach the quaintly named village of France Lynch. Tucked into the hillside, with great views down the hillside, you find our picturesque traditional honey coloured Cotswold stone home.
France Lynch has an interesting history. The last part of the name comes from the medieval English word lynchet which was a hillside terrace. ‘France’ probably comes from an old meeting house called the France Chapel, where Huguenot silk weavers, displaced from the Flemish lowlands, used to worship. It’s a step back in time complete with a 300-year old pub called The King’s Head a short stroll away.
for 2-8 guests
We have four guest bedrooms that sleep up to 8 people. The property, with its rather lovely stone spiral staircase, beams and lovely stonework is delightful. This gorgeously quaint Cotswolds property is perfect for exclusive groups of 4-8 looking to experience six nights of pampered rest, sightseeing and fine eating and drinking.
All creature comforts
great and small
There are two sitting rooms, a dining room and an open kitchen where you are welcome to chat with Chef as he preps your gourmet food. The bedrooms have all been fully refurbished with fine linen and bathrobes on the beds (and chocolates on the pillows!) and elegant modern ensuite bathrooms.
The house has extensive gardens and lawns to the rear and we regularly eat outside. Hot tub aside there is a seating area for evening cocktails and an open fire pit to take the chill off cooler evenings.
Around & about
The Cotswolds is the biggest area of outstanding natural beauty (AONB) in England or Wales, a 25 mile by 90 mile stretch of rolling hills that takes in six different English counties. It’s a bit like spending a few days as an extra in the cast of Larkrise to Candleford meets Downton Abbey.
We know and love the area and have made a point of discovering what we feel are all the ‘best bits’. For us that includes museums and castles and towns like Cirencester, Bibury and Burford, local breweries and vineyards, or a cream tea with polo and croquet. This location is less than one hour from the city of Bath, so discover the Roman city on a full day tour accompanied by lunch at a prestigious local restaurant.

How to Book
Your custom is important to us and we run a personal service, so we don’t book online – we want you to talk to us. Our clients like it better this way – most have some bespoke element to their booking and we really want to tailor your elite gourmet escape to you.
That could involve people arriving in different places at different times, different dietary requirements or allergies, sleeping arrangements or the wish to see something specific in the local area – this is your private escape and we’re here for you.
