Bodkin House Cotswolds

Bodkin House is a 17th century former coaching inn. The earliest parts of Bodkin House date from a 12th century priory which was destroyed by Henry VIII during the dissolution of the monasteries.

The current building began life in the mid 17th century as a coaching inn which served the Bath-Gloucester route. Bodkin House was extended and upgraded in the Georgian period.

Many famous people (including Jane Austen who came as a child and later mentioned her visits in her novel Northanger Abbey) have visited Bodkin House.
