Cotswold Elegance

Situated in a timeless corner of the Cotswolds, this manor is a former 17th century rectory of honey-coloured stone, set in eight acres of landscaped gardens and rolling parkland. This is a place to relax, do as much or as little as you like, safe in the knowledge that you are in a haven of complete privacy.

Experience this house truly as Lord or Lady of the manor. Taking exclusive use provides you with the ultimate experience of staying in a luxurious Cotswold manor house as if it was your own.  Enjoy the ultimate flexibility of arranging your event to suit just you and your guests, and the undivided attentions of a hotel team that becomes your own domestic staff.  It really is perfect for a romantic celebration or entertaining your friends, family or business associates in the splendour of this magnificent manor.

Whatever you are planning it is hard to find a more beautiful setting for your celebration. The rolling parkland and stunning landscaped gardens provide a perfect backdrop for any event, and some of the most beautiful countryside in England is on the door-step.

One of the many pleasures of a stay here is the guarantee of fine food and wine in elegant surroundings.  Behind the scenes chef and his team work like fury – tasting and testing, experimenting and inventing, baking, grilling and steaming. Needless to say you will experience only the calm end products of all this endeavour.

Interiors are sumptuous and comfortable, elegant but with humorous touches of more modern design. This property feels like a home with a supremely restful feel and is a haven for those afflicted with the deeply unfashionable desire to do nothing but sink into a large sofa with a drink and a book.  You won’t find a gym, a jogging track or a jacuzzi here.  Some guests have been known, occasionally, to break into a brisk walk within the gardens, take to the croquet lawn or enjoy some clay pigeon shooting but you can be forgiven if you give into the temptation of simply staying within the beautiful grounds.

For those who need to do some work there are a number of suitable rooms for some strategic thinking, safe in the anticipation of an evening of relaxed eating and drinking ahead.  For those who are looking for more active pursuits the house is close to several golf courses, local horse racing, polo and off road driving activities.

So let go and relax in this beautiful property.  This is how a country-house hotel should be – tranquil, elegant and refined.
