The Place

The House of Bread’s main building is a converted flour mill, which has been re-built several times since the original mill was built, dating back to 1026. The Mill is set in its own grounds, with gardens, fields, river, mill pond and wildlife. There are many walks for guests to enjoy in the surrounding countryside and guests can also enjoy exploring the natural beauty and the pretty villages of the Cotswolds on our doorstep.

Staying at the House of Bread

We only offer self-catering facilities for individuals and for groups coming to the House of Bread, either for the day or for residential. We have tea/coffee making facilities in all the bedrooms and in the meeting rooms. Bed linen is provided but all guests need to bring towels and toiletries with them. On the morning of departure we ask guests to remove the used bed linen and to make the bed with the clean bed linen provided.

Children

We welcome children to come and stay at the House of Bread. There are gardens and fields where the children are welcome to play. There is a 7 a-side football pitch and some swings and a climbing frame (not suitable for young children). The nearest town (1.5 miles away), Shipston-on-Stour, has parks suitable for young children, and there is a swimming pool.

Please be aware that the Mill is by the river, and parents will be responsible for the supervision of their children at all times.

Suggested Financial Gifts

The Trust relies almost entirely on the generosity of each group and individual guests for its financial support. Guests at The House of Bread are therefore invited to make a financial gift in line with the current running costs.
