About EVINGTON HILL FARM, JOYCE AND KEITH ANNIS

Joyce and Keith came to this property eighteen years ago and proceeded to upgrade it to be able to cater for bed and breakfast guests and self catering. We gained Gold 4 Star rating very quickly for our accommodation and B/B. Keith retired from banking to be employed by his wife and took on the breakfast cooking..not the rest of the cooking! We also had to tackle a very large garden and planted more plants to give us more work! We make our own apple juice and blackcurrant, strawberry, greengage, plum and raspberry jams when harvest is good. (mostly it is!) We have thoroughly enjoyed meeting our guests and sharing some lovely moments with them. We now try to do just self-catering as we have eight grandchildren whom we like to entertain! and relieve parents occasionally!

EVINGTON HILL FARM, JOYCE AND KEITH ANNIS purchased this cottage in 1998

Why EVINGTON HILL FARM, JOYCE AND KEITH ANNIS chose Tewkesbury district

We fell in love with this old 16C house, originally a 'Court house' that served the community. A lovely Tudor fire place is pride of place in our sittingroom. Over the years it has grown, with many extensions, including Victorian with high ceilings. Apparently we have the 'best candle burns in Gloucester' in one of our own bedrooms.

We converted rooms that were used as offices into our lovely two bedroom cottage which has beams running throughout the property. Quite high up ones! This cottage is very cosy, light and easy to live in. It has garden at the back door and garden and patios at the front and faces the 4 acre garden. A very sunny spot at the front with benched table and a slightly hidden table and chairs facing the tennis court - to watch the players or play yourself!

We also have a very light, warm and airy 3 BED FLAT with double bedroom en suite and two double bedrooms with two singles and one double and single bed sharing a bathroom at the other side of the flat. In the middle, a new kitchen two fridges freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, opens up to the dining room, table with six chairs. Stairs come up in the middle and the other side is the sitting room area, with double futon, large settee and chairs. TVs are in the sitting room, and bedrooms. Guests really like this spacious flat.

To complete our apartments, plenty of seating TV coffee table etc. Separate kitchen/dining room (fully equipped) and bathroom with shower over. Large bedroom with double bed, and hall. Suitable for two or four people and ideal for young family.

What makes this cottage unique

We are situated very conveniently for Cheltenham, Tewkesbury and Gloucester, but retaining a good air of rural and peaceful life with farming all around us. The M5 going north junction is just two miles on the way to Cheltenham. We have great out of town shopping just two miles down the road with The wonderful Wholefood Company opposite Sainsburys, a very large Next, United and coffee shops etc. a little further on there is a large M & S home and a smaller M & S food amongst other shops.

LINK http://bit.ly/1UEhtc3 for details about the area

Our apartments all have great character and are comfortable and sit within a lovely garden, tennis court and large grassy areas to kick a football etc!! or just have a drink sitting in the garden watching the birds.

We, as owners are in our own house as part of the complex and are on hand to answer any queries guests may have or suggest venues, or eating places.

The three flats also lend really well for group bookings to celebrate occasions and we have had many of them!

The village is just over the road, and is nice to walk around, and going past the village pond eventually arrive at a pub on the river Severn via the canal, which is part of Gloucestershire Wet Lands with wild birds frequenting it.l

Excellent accommodation and welcome.

  • 4 of 5

Joyce and Keith are very friendly hosts who make you feel really welcome. The flat is very comfortable and the facilities are excellent. I didn't personally use the tennis court, but it is full size and equipment is provided. I did use the barbecue, however, and can vouch for the quality of the product. The flat is a little close to the A38 so quite a bit of road noise leaks in, but happily not so much into the bedroom. The location is also not perfect for anyone without a car. These were minor issues though. I was there for four weeks and wished it had been longer.
