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.
The Alpha Suite
Staying at the House of Bread
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.
People with disabilities
The ground floor of the Mill is completely accessible to wheelchair users, and we have a stair lift for disabled guests for access to the first and second floors. There are disabled toilets in the Mill and in the Alpha Suite. Please discuss with us any needs you or a group member may have.
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.
