Wren House Pre-Arrival Information

Wren House Bed & Breakfast

P R E – A R R I V A L   I N F O R M A T I O N


Turn to Donnington off the A429 between Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold. Drive about 400 yards under a tunnel of trees and fork left – uphill – at some barns. Just before the next 30 mph sign (150 yds) turn right just after The Granary cottage (sign on wall) and park the far side of a five bar gate which is set back from the road. The main entrance is up the first set of steps marked by some blue pots.

N.B. If you are following a Satellite Navigation device it will take you to the back door where there is no parking, so please ignore it once you turn off the A429 and follow the above!

Please allow a minimum of 2 hours if you are driving from London.

Dining Out – book ahead to avoid disappointment:

Make sure you book somewhere ahead of arriving, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings, as the good places get booked even on winter weekdays. There are personal recommendations at DINING OUT. I am afraid that it is not possible for guests to bring in their own snacks or meals to the house and, regrettably, after too many “red wine disasters”, to bring drink to their rooms.


Breakfast – a selection of cereals, fresh fruits and compotes, fruit juice, and a full English cooked breakfast (locally-sourced/organic as available) if you wish – is normally served at 8.30 a.m. in the kitchen, 9 a.m. or even a little later at weekends. If you have any food intolerances please do let me know in advance so that I can cater for you.

Check In and Check Out Times:

I look forward to meeting you from 4.30 p.m. Please do let me know your plan and ring if you are delayed.

Check out each day during your stay is by 10.30 a.m. (11 a.m. on Sundays.) I will always be back to welcome you by 4/4.30 p.m. but, not being an hotel and a one-person business, I am unable to offer all day access to the house.


25% of the whole stay as a part payment is payable to confirm your booking. Payment may be made by cash, cheque (payable to Kiloran McGrigor), or bank transfer.  Depending on the relationship between my bank (Barclays) and yours, charges may be made to you or to me (usually £6) and I ask my customers to bear this charge.  I no longer work with the debit/credit card companies as their charges were ridiculous for everyone.


Please forgive this necessary small business condition. The 25% part payment made to confirm your reservation is non-refundable unless you cancel 3 weeks (21 days) before your arrival date. If you cancel within 7 or more full clear days prior to your date of arrival, no further charge will be made. If less notice is given – for whatever reason – the full amount of your stay is due as a contract exists between us from the time of payment of your deposit. You may wish to take out travel insurance for this reason.

Wren House is a No Smoking Property.
