Some of my guests prefer their privacy, others want company. A particular guest recently I got it off immediately with and wished she could have stayed longer. This was a little blog she wrote about her stay; (website hidden)(phone number hidden)/where-you-say.


Please note the family bathroom is shared on this listing and there is another toilet and sink on the ground floor. If you would prefer your own private en suite bathroom please look at my other listing entitled " "boutique cottage.."

It's within walking distance to everything, no need to drive the car to town as it takes two minutes to walk to the shops and montpellier.
The location is also quiet.

There are buses to get to Gloucester etc however the cottage really is central to everything you might want to do in Cheltenham.

There is also a main train station which serves direct lines from London, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, Manchester and many other towns.

Nearest airports are Birmingham international, Bristol and Cardiff.
We also offer a completely FREE service for you to get around from a-b, if we are free and able to. We are not a TAXI service so this is a completely free ride if you need it.

I have a small and very friendly dog who is malt free so is fine with people with dog allergies.
Smoking is not permitted within the house.

No smoking indoors, however there is a nice seating area in the garden designated for smoking.

We can organise a " welcome" food hamper for your arrival, just let us know what you will need and it will be waiting for you.

From the 10-16th of March the price of the room is higher than normal as I have to stay outside of the Cotswolds as the hotels/ rooms are all fully booked and very pricey. To cover my costs I have to raise the price for me to travel elsewhere and stay in a hotel myself and board my dog. However I try to keep prices reasonable to simply cover my overheads and not charge the silly prices that most accommodation establishments charge at this very busy time in Cheltenham.
The holiday inn ( also near the racecourse ) is charging £450 a night. ( parking is extra) for a standard room on the same dates and lacks the privacy, charm and character of the cottage.

Check in is strictly at 4pm unless by prior special arrangement.

We have a pond so do not take children under the age of 5 years of age.

Please note that our delightful local council have made our street residents parking only in the autumn of 2015, much to the dismay of the entire neighbourhood. This means that you may no longer park wherever you wish. At the top of Marle hill parade there is parking within the bay's for up to two hours at a time. Then free parking from 10pm until 8am every night. At all other times there is a NCP on monsoon avenue around the corner or an open car park next to Chapel Spa, a few minutes away.

Guest access

Guests can access all rooms including kitchen, living room, dining room, other bathrooms. and garden

Interaction with guests

We are happy to socialise and love meeting new people.

A Monastery was first established on the site around 676 but the present building dates from the 12th century, and was consecrated about 1180. One of the most notable features surviving from that period is the south porch with its magnificent Norman arch containing carvings depicting Bible stories. There is also a fine vaulted roof to the nave

Lyra's place was easily accessible to city centre. 5 mins walk you are able to get what you need from shops. Lyra was away so I was by myself in the house and I had a good stay . I will recommend Lyra for anyone visiting .

Hi, I am italian/spanish and love travel having travelled extensively. I run a B&B in Spain with my brother. when im not in the UK, I love to meet new people. I'm into music, movies, beaches, dogs and books.
I am a big animal lover and also love marmite. I am very easy going and am more than happy to spend time with my guests and go out with them for supper but am also respectful, if people need privacy.
Favourite music is Bossa Nova and my favourite food is Thai. Absolute top destination worldwide is Byron Bay, Australia and the next destination i am always planning, as travel is my absolute passion along with my dog and sunshine.
My motto is "Carpe Diem"
I Look forward to meeting you.
