Luxury Self-Catering

Lake and riverside seat

Forget all the troubles of city life, breathe in deep and smell the fresh air. The moment you drive into the stableyard and glimpse the spring-fed trout lake, the river gently bubbling its way along to the Thames, you will begin to relax. That’s what your time here is all about.

This has to be probably the most stylish, elegant, luxurious self-catering holiday home less than two hours from London. Sleeping twelve in six bedrooms, with five bathrooms, it is an ideal rural retreat for a family get together, or for a group of friends just wanting to chill for the weekend, or a special celebration.

Relax, for we have provided every thoughtful detail to make your stay in this most beautiful of Cotswolds’ villages a delight from start to finish. From the moment you walk in, we will welcome you with a luxury hamper, wine, local cheese, milk fresh from the local farm, home-made bread and cake, home-made chutney and marmalade. So if you get down here late, don’t worry, there’s plenty to keep you going. Have a glass of wine – you will very, very soon begin to relax.

If you don’t want to cook, that’s fine. Phone our local farm shop who can arrange for the fridge to be filled with local delicacies. If you’d rather catch your own supper, wander down the garden and see if you can land a nice fat trout, or have a local chef come in and cater for your dinner party with mouth watering delicacies that you can sit down to enjoy.

If your skin feels stressed out, we have a masseuse who can come and soothe away your worries, nourish your skin, and leave you feeling wonderful. Or try a special spa treatment, designed to pamper and nourish your body and soul.

For those who prefer a more active lifestyle, this area of the Cotswolds, all part of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a walkers’ paradise. Head out of the garden and explore untold miles and miles of walks. If wildlife is your thing, look no further than through the Breakfast Room window to see blackbirds, mistle thrush and kingfisher. And if you see the heron, please ask him to stop stealing our fish! There is a large badger sett in the woods beyond, so go and explore but leave him in peace.
