Ideal for those looking for a family-friendly holiday in the Cotswolds, this superb wisteria-clad Georgian manor house set in eight acres of beautiful gardens and woodland, offers the perfect country retreat. Summer living comes easy at this property with a delightful dining terrace overlooking a heated pool, the perfect spot for balmy evenings chatting long into the night with friends and family. In cooler months, come together for pre-dinner drinks in front of the roaring open fire of the elegant high-ceilinged sitting room, going on to entertain your guests in the formal dining room, dating back to the 17th century.
A well-equipped open-plan kitchen with warming Aga is just the place to rustle up a quick meal or prepare a sumptuous dinner for the whole party. On cold winter afternoons, butter some toasted crumpets and take them through to the snug where you can relax with that book you have been meaning to read, stretching out beside the flickering wood burner and wondering to yourself if you could stay here forever.
When it’s time to retire, the blissful bedrooms provide the perfect space. Six upstairs and one downstairs delight with floor-to-ceiling sash windows and sumptuous furnishings, one with a grand piano if you feel like tinkling the ivories when you wake. For larger parties, you also have the opportunity of two extra double rooms as well as eight additional beds that can be added to various bedrooms, excellent if you have little ones with you.
On warm days, enjoy a late breakfast on the terrace before taking a leisurely dip in the heated swimming pool. For those who want a little alone time, an evening stroll along the avenue of lime trees or around the manicured lawns, bordered with colourful blooms and surrounding a central fountain is simply blissful. Finish the night with a favourite old movie in the home cinema, popcorn optional.
