A June 2000 trip
to Cotswolds by Beauchemin
Quote: As you turn into the grounds leading to the Stouts Hill Resort in Uley, England, you are taken aback by the beauty of the area.
The elegance of all the common areas of the resort was just beautiful. One night a dinner was offered (for a small price) to all residents. The food was excellent, the waitstaff wonderful and the attention to detail impeccable. It gave everyone a chance to meet people from all over the world.
Each evening, my son and I would go down to the honesty bar/games room and have a drink of brandy and play a few games of checkers. It was quiet, no one was there, and it gave us time to have some quality time together. The resort also offers a library which was very well stocked.
We took daily trips to the small town just a short drive away and purchased food, visited pubs, and just walked around and visited the shops along the streets.
There are laundry facilities available on site and also barbecue areas. An outdoor pool is also available.
Hopefully someday we will return to Uley and will definitely stay at Stouts Hill again!

Pull up into the winding driveway and come to a "castle." Walk in the doors and you are greeted with a warm, friendly "Hello, how nice to meet you," look around and you see dark wood carefully polished daily. Walk into the library and take a seat...there are many books to choose from, you'll be sure to find one that you'll enjoy. And then there's the honesty bar/games room. Rarely used in late evening and a wonderful place to sit and play a game of checkers or chess (if you choose) and get to know your son in a setting you've never been in before, and get reacquainted with your spouse in a very relaxing atmosphere.

When we got to the top, we went down a small hall and up a few more steps to our unit.
We opened the door and were pleasantly surprised to see a tastefully decorated living room, galley kitchen and dining area. As we went down a short hall, we came upon a small room (which was supposed to be the third bedroom), and two very good-sized bedrooms. The bathroom was very spacious, with a separate shower stall and a corner tub. A towel warmer was in the bathroom and we very quickly became very spoiled by this amenity!
We had friends visit us while we were there and invited them for breakfast. The kitchen, even though smaller than those in the U.S., was well equipped, and I had no problems preparing a meal for the five of us.
The china dishes and cloth napkins added to the elegance of the resort.
In each bedroom, the mattresses had feather beds on them and goose-down pillows and comforters.
If you want to be treated like royalty, take a trip to Uley and stay at Stouts Hill.
