    Lostandfound becomes a UK holiday letter

    I had a call out the blue a couple of years ago from my UK business partner. Despite having only ever spent two nights ever in Cheltenham, and pissed most of the time at John Gordon's whisky emporium, I was talked into buying half a run down b and b.

    The establishment boasted fine English features like Dolphin showers, laminate wood palstic floors and saggy mattresses. The partitioning inside the Regency building reminded me of upstairs at certain party holes in Bangkok, circa 1990.

    After a great deal of work and god knows how many mistakes - it's now been launched as a posh holiday rental in Cheltenham for parties.

    The decor is, I admit, a bit louche. I have already had to turn down a company who arrange up market swappers parties who wanted to make it their Cheltenham regular.

    Special TDers rates anyway - let me know

    It's being marketed via a company that specialise in posh houses -

    Here's their link The Montpellier Town House - The Big Cottage Company

    Posting pics here remains a mystery, that I have struggled with for countless hours. But I'll have a crack later. Again

    I didn't mean to be rude, but from my first view it looks a bit odd.

    Too many bits and bobs and things that clutter and can get broken.

    Good luck with it all L+F ,,looks kinda retro weird to me ,,, mabe you could get a booking for the next series of Murder she wrote

    The one thing that would put me off running a B+B is the first night facing a huge litigation suit against me ,, when a couple of nancy boys turned up .
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    It's a house again - we kept the licence and stuff like that - so we can do receptions for corporates at festivals and race week. Otherwise its a house that you rent with daily maid service and chef if you pay extra

    You should email the details to BBC Bristol, They may look to hiring it for bits and bobs. You never know.

    I didn't want it to be vanilla, so got that right, at least. Its a bit quirky - the footstall in the master bedroom is an unrestored Chippendale - we just stuck an Irish silk linen cushion on it. It's kind of arty in a let's get pissed and have 70 friends round kind of way

    Behind the scenes its all 21st c - biomass boiler, solar, intelliegent lighting. It was centre piece of Cheltenham eco-hab exhibition last year to showcase sustainable building and energy efficient new labour ideas..

    All the furniture is recycled - albeit antiques from William IV to Edwardian

    Good thinking - will do that . Already have a booking for a posh lingerie photo shoot. Launched it last week so working on filling it now.

    That painting of the Queen should be a treason offence. Burn it immediately
