Adding to its stunning collection of hotels, pubs and restaurants, the Lucky Onion Group opens its latest property: The House at No.131
Synonymous for its contemporary chic styling, The House at No.131 offers eight new guest bedrooms in addition to the eleven currently at No.131. The rooms, and four new event spaces, are available for bookings now. The House is one in an exciting series of new developments by The Lucky Onion group and Dowdeswell Estates, owned by Jade and Julian Dunkerton, with plans to develop the building to the right-hand side of No.131, as well as other hospitality venues in and around Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.
The beautiful Georgian townhouse, standing adjacent to No.131, boasts individually designed, effortlessly stylish bedrooms complete with Egyptian cotton sheets, statement feature walls, unique furniture, artwork from big names, modern essentials and a well-stocked mini bar full of locally sourced goodies. The rooms are categorised into Cosy, Very Good and Excellent - and while size may differ, there’s no compromise in design or amenities.
Alongside the enviable, Instagram-worthy interiors of the new bedrooms, the personal touches are what makes a stay at No.131 so special. A cold bottle of water, fruit and freshly baked treats await guests on arrival, as well as a round-the-clock concierge service should you need anything at all. Guests can also find books, magazines and large flat screen TVs, with streaming services available, in each room.
The spacious bathrooms give guests the opportunity to relax and unwind before exploring Cheltenham and the surrounding area. With either a metro tiled walk in shower or freestanding bathtub, or both, complete with Bramley’s range of natural bath and body products, they provide the perfect space to get ready in style.
The House at No.131 boasts four new event spaces including a large function room, lounge, a cosy snug with a large TV screen and a slightly smaller space that would be ideal for a pop-up bar or cloakroom. The rooms are available for exclusive use for intimate weddings, parties, corporate functions and hangouts.
Looking out across the picturesque Imperial Gardens, the terrace at the front of the property can hold up to 150 people, making the space perfect for a fairytale Cotswold wedding.
With a passion for seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, the restaurant at No.131 is a celebration of the great food and drink you can find in the Cotswolds. The menu is filled with delicious dishes, from traditional classics to modern European fare.
No.131’s new bar Gin & Juice offers 350 gins with something for everyone, whether you’re a gin novice or connoisseur. Expert bar staff are able to assist with choosing a perfect drink for you, and there’s also a varied cocktail and wine list if gin isn’t your bag.
Crazy Eights was the go-to party spot, and Gin & Juice looks to be no different. Open Thursday, Friday and Saturday into the early hours, expect an atmospheric night out with the in-house DJs playing through to the early hours. Not feeling your best the next day? Gin & Juice will offer an all-day brunch menu to help bring you back from the night before.
Julian Dunkerton says, “For those who want the class of metropolitan city in the heart of the British countryside, we have gone above and beyond to bring a relaxed contemporary style, great locally sourced food, and impeccable service.”
