The heart of the cottage is the 30ft-long drawing room/dining room that has a pitched ceiling and a Gothic-style stone fireplace. It’s an inviting space with lots of bookcases filled with interesting reads, while the decor is elegant with beautiful fabrics and objects including antique furniture and an ornate mirror. Behind the sofa and seating area, where there is also a Smart TV, there’s a dining table where you can enjoy dinner a deux.
If you have friends and family staying at other cottages, there’s the option to rearrange the drawing room and set it up for lunch or dinner for up to 30 guests.* It’s ideal if you’d like to mark a special occasion with a celebratory meal.
Off the drawing room is the kitchen, which features a Cotswold stone floor and is very well equipped with a range cooker with six burners and two ovens, an American-style fridge/freezer, a microwave and two dishwashers, as well as a washing machine/dryer.
Meanwhile, the large bedroom is very impressive with its pitched ceiling, the 6-ft bed framed by fabric drapes, pretty, French armoires and details like the antique mirror. In the en-suite bathroom, there’s a bath with a shower over, a basin and a WC.
From the bedroom, a door leads out to the secluded terrace that’s furnished with a table and chairs and surrounded by clematis, lavender, roses and shrubs. It’s the ideal spot to enjoy morning coffee, a lunchtime barbecue or evening drinks in peace.
You’ll also have access to the estate’s stunning gardens which feature a mix of formal and informal elements, the perfect place for a quiet stroll. There’s also access to shared facilities including an indoor swimming pool, spa and gym.
