About Amanda Houghton-Brown

Paul and Amanda fell in love with Winchcombe when they moved here in 2002. In 2007, shortly after the birth of their second daughter, Paul spotted the potential in a 2 bedroom bungalow that became available on Langley Road. Together, we have transformed the property into the family home with guest accommodation which it is today.

Amanda Houghton-Brown purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Amanda Houghton-Brown chose Tewkesbury district

The light and airy interior mingles with the garden beyond at The Vine. Through the large French windows you can sit and enjoy the sunset over the garden. Once dark, look up through the beautiful skylight in the sitting room to admire the constellations.

Or from your own sunny patio you can sit quietly with a glass of wine and listen to the birdsong. The Vine has been running successfully as a holiday cottage since 2014 and with a background in the hotel industry Amanda knows how to look after her guests whether that is in the cleanliness & boutique hotel feel of the property or in her local knowledge of where to dine or what shows and festivals are on in Cheltenham or surrounding villages.

A perfect place in a lovely little town

  • 5 of 5

The Vine is really a perfect place for a quiet and relaxed holiday.

It is very will equipped, offers a lot of space and also a wonderful sunny terrace and garden with beautiful views.

We enjoyed our time here very much and also liked Winchcombe with its beautiful cottages, small shops, pubs and restaurants and beautiful Sudeley Castle as a highlight.

Overall a perfect location to explore the lovely area and enjoy a holiday in a high-standard home from home!

Great location, attentive but non-obtrusive hosts, comfy and quiet unit

  • 5 of 5

We were very appreciative of the milk-juice-better-bread welcome basket. Our stay was quiet and comfortable. Thanks, Amanda - also for speedy solution to our internet challenge.

Extremely compfortable, well-equipped and warm home from home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Vine for three nights whilst working at nearby Sudeley Castle for the Homes and Gardens Spring Fair. After working hard all day it was wonderful to come back to our own, very comfortable, space. The Vine is even better than it looks - very spacious, spotlessly clean and well-equipped; I was delighted to find big, fluffy white towels (so often even good hotels are mean with the size and quality of towels). The bathroom was lovely and the bedroom very spacious. Downstairs had an enormous and very comfortable sofa and a huge television. Amanda popped in to say hello and had kindly left all the essentials in the fridge. All in all the perfect home from home.

We will definitely be back!

The Vine - Excellent value for money and one of the best places to stay in Winchcombe!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Vine between 20th and 24th February 2016 and this was our first time. Previously we have stayed in many other cottages and apartments within Winchcombe and nothing has compared to the quality and standard of this apartment.

The arrival documentation was clear, concise and informative. Amanda greeted us upon arrival and had kindly provided a welcome pack for us – which was much appreciated after a long journey. It was clear that the apartment was high quality and had a touch of class from the minute we walked in - it was well designed, decorated and fitted out. In particular the bed and bedding were extremely comfortable – a must for a great night’s sleep (which we had every night) and the bathroom was fabulous with lovely fittings and high quality towels (plus a great view across the fields and hills).

Also the location of the Vine is good - on the edge of Winchcombe, which means its very peaceful and quiet but still just a short walk into the town centre where there are plenty of good quality places to eat and drink (Plus there's a really good pub/restaurant literally just round the corner) .

The Vine is by far the best accommodation we have stayed in, in and around Winchcombe and we would definitely recommend it!
