About John Mumford
I am semi-retired and have lived in Cheltenham with my wife Penny for six years. We enjoy living in Cheltenham because the town is very friendly and there is plenty to do.
John Mumford purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why John Mumford chose Cheltenham
The apartment is part of a large Regency house close to the town centre but in a quiet and peaceful conservation area. We bought the house as our home but the house is very large so we let the lower ground floor, which was the old servants quarters, for holidays.
What makes this Apartment unique
The location is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, and all the festival and event locations in Cheltenham, yet it is also in the Cotswolds with the countryside and walks to enjoy. Cheltenham is of course famous for the horse racing festivals and also has annual festivals of Jazz, Literature, Music, and Science. There are also many places of interest to visit in the Cotswolds and there are events in the surrounding towns. So there is something on most months of the year.

Lovely flat, ideal location
Lovely flat in an ideal location for the town and race course. Clean, well equipped, comfortable and relaxing
Fantastic flat for Festival.
We had a wonderful time. Flat was warm, clean and parking was easy outside. John was really helpful and offered extra, clean towels halfway through the week. The kitchen was well equipped. Comfortable, huge beds. Short walking distance from the middle of town. Thank you very much!
Good location and great owner.
Very nice property. Was as represented online. It was a bit chilly. Owner made change so more heat was available, but the heating system reverted to previous setting the next day. We just learned to live with it. Such a nice place!
Sorry you weren't able to get the heating how you wanted it. Heating controllers are always a bit confusing. I have now put some detailed instructions in the flat to make it easier for people.
A home away from home
This is a beautiful apartment in a great location. It certainly exceeded our expectations. Comfortable, well equipped, premium quality, and all with a huge dose of personality. From the books, to the artefacts and the paintings. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely love to return someday soon.
Stayed here with my wife and two teenage children, for a week and all was good. The flat has everything you need and is very clean. Great location as town centre is only a 10 mins walk away and feels very safe at any time. Lovely park just around the corner with pitch and put golf, rowing boat hire on the lake, ice cream and coffee shop. All in all this is a great place to stay. Only down side was the weather, but thats britain for you.
Nice,comfortable flat. Good size & very well located, perfect base for cycling around Cheltenham and driving further afield - Forest of Dean & Bristol. Only downside, slightly chilly - we needed the heating in the evenings - in July. Would consider using again if we holiday in this area.
Yes sorry about the weather. You were very unlucky. It was ridiculously cold for July that week. Week before and week after were quite warm. Better luck with weather next time!
