The Rose’s event of the year

Thursday 7th - Monday 11th November 2024
2, 3 or 4 nights, first and last nights optional

A new venue for this year following months of uncertainty about the refurbishment works that are taking place at our previous venue in Dumbleton.

Martine has been organising events for the trans community since 1989 and this will be our first time at the Three Ways House Hotel. This is a deceptively large hotel with more rooms than we had at Dumbleton. It has lots of character and is situated in the heart of the lovely village of Mickleton, Gloucestershire, in the beautiful Cotswold countryside. It is just 3 miles from Chipping Campden, 10 from Evesham, and 27 miles from Cheltenham.

The Three Ways House Hotel is famous for its 'Pudding Club' which began in 1985 to preserve the Great British Pudding. One of our evenings will be a special event starting with a glass of Bucks Fizz and a jovial introduction by The Pudding Master followed by a light main course and then the Parade of Seven Traditional Puddings, with all its noise and ceremony. The aim being to taste them all and then to vote for your favourite pudding of the night over coffee. Guests will each receive a certificate!

 

Besides the above we hope to have all our usual happenings, including:

  • ‘Miss Rose of the Year’ Parade
  • Fashion Show - you can be a model!
  • Trade stands throughout Saturday
  • Make-overs and photos
  • Swop Shop - Bring one item, take one
  • Fun Quiz
  • Raffle with proceeds as gratuity for hotel staff
  • Free parking

Public Rooms:
There are several public rooms including a large restaurant, The Terrace Suite (picture here), where we will have our evening entertainments and disco, close by is a lounge with bar (photo above), and a bistro near reception where lunches are served. There is also a room where our traders will be attending on the Saturday.

Bedrooms:

All bedrooms are located on the ground, first and second floors (lift available) and are en-suite with shower and/or bath. Many of the rooms in each category except small double can be used as twins.

There are several quirky feature rooms with a Pudding or Chocolate theme and some of the ground floor rooms have an outside private patio garden area.

However, as some refurbishment works are proceeding during the first part of this year, we will not know the precise number of each category of room until closer to the date. If you have a particular preference such as a 'Pudding' room or one with a patio garden, please indicate your desire when you submit a booking in the notes section and we will allocate your room preferences in the order of bookings being made when we are able to do so.

Superior rooms: have more space with comfy seating areas and views over the village or garden. In addition to the standard room items, they come with bathrobes, Nespresso coffee macjines and still and sparkling water. Two of the superior twin rooms can be used as family rooms, one having additional bunk beds and the other has a sofa bed.

Standard (Classic) Rooms: These have tea/coffee making facilities, home-made biscuits, room service (restricted hours), phone, radio, TV, telephone, free wifi, and hair dryer. Two of them have sofa beds if more than two persons wish to share.

Small Doubles: These will be used as single rooms but there are only four of these.

Non-resident Dinner and Evening Entertainment:
If you would like to join us for dinner and the evening entertainment (plus daytime too if you wish) without accommodation at the hotel, this is available for £35 per person. Please email Martine or use the contact form.

Number of nights:
The principle days for our events will be the Friday and Saturday. But many of our guests like to come the day before (Thursday) to settle in and/or have an extra day after (Sunday) to chill out and visit places of interest in the area.

The total cost includes bed and breakfast, evening meals, entertainments (disco, performers, etc.), and administration charges. Lunches are not included but are available from the Bistro.

A deposit of £30 per person per night (non-refundable) is payable upon booking.

The balance of payment must be paid by 6th September 2024. A reminder will be sent about two weeks before this date.

Cancellations:
Up until 13th September 2024:
The deposit amount is non-refundable but any additional payment before then will be refunded (e.g. if payment is made in full upon booking).
Between 14th September and 31st October 2024: A partial refund (less deposit) may only be refundable if your place can be refilled.
After 31st October 2024: Sorry we cannot make any refunds.

Coming Alone:
If you are coming alone, rather than select single occupancy, you might like to consider sharing a twin-bedded room with another. Not only will this save you the extra cost of single occupancy, many first-timers take this option as having a room mate can be very helpful. If you don’t have anyone in mind, we may be able to allocate someone.
