Silver Rill House is now closed for business. This website is now used as a demonstration website by Cotswold Web Services.

New Age Comfort a tranquil place to stay

The house is light and airy with spacious rooms high ceilings coupled with antique furniture and bespoke mattresses ensure you have a wonderful comfortable night’s sleep. The stream running outside all the bedroom windows gently tinkles its way through the garden it’s origins on Bredon Hill and provides the house with spring water which has a lovely fresh taste.

In the Summer why not open the sash windows giving you views across the Park where the lambs play racing games around the old estate trees. In the autumn the colours of the trees are spectacular with many of the trees hundreds of years old. For those cold winter nights Silver Rill is centrally heated; despite its size it is always warm in this old country house with open fires ready to be lit. Whatever the time of year Silver Rill House is a really tranquil place to stay.

Time stands still at Silver Rill a place full of history and charm

Built as a paper mill in 1740 Silver Rill was a place of work, later converted into a house and more recently a cider press built in the grounds, Silver Rill boasts some interesting history. The man who invented Sellotape lived here, as did a Sea Lord. This country house has been in the Holland-Martin’s family for generations and now is in the care of Mrs Penelope Bossom who is the most recent estate owner.

The village is vibrant and has a wonderful community with many activities on locally. There are two old world pubs within walking distance of Silver Rill, so why not take in the lovely village of Overbury with a stroll to one of our local pubs for a glass of wine.

A Perfect Base we can help you explore this unique and beautiful area

The Cotswolds is designated ‘An Area of Outstanding Beauty’ and is the largest in England and Wales, stretching from Chipping Campden, in the north, to Bath in the South (80 miles), covering an area of 2038 sq. kms (790 sq. miles) and comprises farmland over 80% of its area. It has the largest number of conservation areas of any region. The Cotswolds area of outstanding natural beauty has been shaped by people for over 6000 years.

The old limestone houses built from the locally quarried stone has created these chocolate box villages that are a joy to visit.

J. B. Priestley wrote of Cotswold stone that - “the truth is that it has no colour that can be described. Even when the sun is obscured and the light is cold, these walls are still faintly warm and luminous, as if they knew the trick of keeping the lost sunlight of centuries glimmering about them.” Walk or drive around Cotswold villages and towns for even a day, and you will know what he meant.
