In 1213, after the Norman Conquest, the wooded land we now know as Minchinhampton Common was confiscated and given to l`Abbaye aux Dames in Caen. Some 800 years later and Christophe (a Norman himself) and business partner Nick continue to add to this fascinating anglo/french story. The Old Lodge itself dates back some 400 years and is reportedly a former hunting lodge to Henry VIII.The most recent project and the boys only hotel to date. The Lodge has magnificent views and an envied position at the centre not only of the common with its free ranging cattle but of Minchinhampton Golf Course. The stunning restaurant has floor to ceiling windows that look directly onto the common and the professional yet relaxed service is delivered by David Almeida and his team. Recently refurbished, all rooms have contemporary decoration with stylish furnishings and luxury linen and bedding. Each room comes equipped with wireless broadband, DVD, and digital LCD TV as standard. All bathrooms feature either bath and/or power shower.Please Note: Smoking in designated areas. Pets allowed. Children welcome. Check-In time: 1400 and Check-Out time: 1030.
