Welcome to Hotels in Painswick
HAMBUTTS MYND was built in the 1700s as a corn mill, which was driven by a wind mill. It still has the original beam and character. In 1800s it was converted into the first Girls School in the Gloucester village of Painswick, and then in latter years it was converted into a normal dwelling house, which is now run as a renowned Bed and Breakfast by John and Elizabeth. HAMBUTTS MYND is situated up a side road and not in the centre of the bustling village. We are 200 yards from the main road, very quiet, and just 5 minutes walk (2 blocks) from the beautiful Painswick with its historic buildings and magnificent church grounds.
Painswick is a small town in Gloucestershire, England. Originally, the town grew on the wool trade, but it is now best known for its church's yew trees and the local Rococo Garden. The town is mainly constructed of cotswold stone, a yellow oolitic limestone quarried locally. Many of the buildings feature South facing attic rooms once used as weaver's workshops.
There is evidence of settlement in the area as long ago as the iron age. This can be seen in the defensive earthworks atop nearby Painswick Beacon, which have wide views across the Severn Vale. The local monastery, Prinknash Abbey, was established as long ago as the 11th century.
