About Bolthole Retreats

Bolthole Retreats is based in Cheltenham, the regency spa town famous for its festivals and known as the cultural centre of the Cotswolds.

Bolthole Retreats was founded in 2017 by Martin McWilliam and is based in Cheltenham.

We are the leading independent agency for Cotswold holiday rental properties. We work closely with owners and housekeepers to ensure that guests have a truly memorable stay.

We pride ourselves on our local knowledge, whether it be of a local farm shop, cycle routes or events. Our aim is to enable guests to have the opportunity to enjoy authentic Cotswold experiences, from the Cotswold experts, in a lovely Cotswold property that suits their needs.

Why book with Bolthole Retreats?

Quality as standard

We know the little things make all the difference. Travel cots and highchairs are available free of charge, all homes have Wifi and many have superfast broadband, some provide breakfast and bathroom starter packs, and many Cotswold cottage owners understand that your dog is part of the family. Full details can be found in each individual property description.

The right price

We never discount our properties. You do not need to be concerned with when you should book – our prices remain fair and consistent. We pride ourselves on our intelligent pricing model, so you receive a price that reflects the quality of the cottage and the time of year that you are staying.

Keeping it personal

We have been to all of our properties and inspected them, ensuring they are correctly described. We offer 3D tours of the property, floor plans and a large gallery of photos. If you have any questions or issues while at the property, the owner and housekeeper are only a direct message or phone call away from you.
