For a good source of local information, please visit Painswick Tourist Information Centre.

We have relationships with a number of lovely local places to stay.  If you fancy a luxury getaway, you might like to check out The Painswick hotel or Court House Manor, both in Painswick village centre.  Just over the hill towards Gloucester is Hatton Court and on the way to Cheltenham is The Greenway.  Between us and the village is St Anne's B&B.  Mention to all that you are planning to visit us and they should be able to provide you with an admission voucher.  For more accommodation options in Painswick, check out HotelsCombined.co.uk.
