The Temple, Stancombe Park - Self-catering pavilion in Gloucestershire

Last cache: 15:47:02, Tuesday 26 August 2014

Stancombe, Dursley, Gloucestershire
England, United Kingdom

Romance, nature and history meld in this miniature temple – all yours! Row the lake, walk the estate, revel in 1001 Nights fantasy décor...

A neoclassical beauty in 20 green acres by a tranquil lake: inspiration for romantics, poets – and wild swimmers. The Grade I folly was built by a reverend, restored by English Heritage, festooned by creative Nic with Moorish rugs, gilded artworks, extravagant mirrors, scallop-shell lights... fantastic. Off the marble-pillared, roof-lit hall: a dainty writing desk, a phone cubby, whisky decanters on a miniature bar. Curl up on grand armchairs by an electric fire, put on music or a DVD... and the bed? Dive into a tiny windowed alcove, pull the curtains: it's One Thousand and One Nights! Generously stocked with champagne, smoked salmon, chocolate truffles, the small kitchen is modern enough. But more fun to barbecue outside, where gardens glide out to conifers and steps tumble to a jetty. Row past a summerhouse, fountain, Egyptian folly... the scene, over the years, of beauty contests, water polo, jazz and costumed balls. Both Cotswold Way and road swing past the estate (some traffic), and cutely named villages – North Nibley, Wotton-under-Edge – have shops and a pub. "Bonkers," says our inspector, "but totally special."
