The Experience

Gather together family or friends and switch off here surrounded by much comfort and many lovely things to look at. Nothing has been skimped on: thick mattresses, delicious-smelling lotions and potions, fat sofas and squishy cushions, great lighting and bold art. Kitchens are state of the art and include all the gear for the fussiest of cooks but you can be looked after with a concierge service if you prefer. In any event you’ll find everything you need for your first breakfast waiting for you: local bacon and eggs, bread from the bakery in Stow, honey from bees down the road and delicious crunchy granola with local milk.

Authentic rustic features rub shoulders with Smart TVs and sound systems so even on rainy days you can snuggle up by the wood-burner and feel cosseted – you’ll also find a basket of games for young and old. When the sun shines you’ll throw open the doors and head for the south-facing garden with table and chairs for long and lazy meals and a big gas-fired barbecue – stock up at the Organic Farm Shop just a 10-minute drive away.

A footpath will lead you to Bibury and its famously photogenic cottages. You can also get afternoon tea and good food at the Swan hotel and it’s a very short stumble home. There are oodles of bridleways and footpaths for walks.

The neighbourhood

Bibury is so pretty you'll find tourists getting buses to gawk at the chocolate box Englishness of it all. Other honey stone villages await - Burford is a 10-minute drive. Wedding venues Cripps Barn and Stone Barn are both a five-minute drive, Cirencester 15 minutes for wonderful shops. For days out with children the Cotswold Wildlife Park is 10 minutes and Cotswold Water Parks (swimming, canoeing, water skiing, paddle boarding and sailing et al) 15. Hire a bike for miles of cycle paths or join the Cotswold Way for hearty walks

  • You're only a 10 minute drive from both Burford and Cirencester - both beautiful, historic Cotswolds market towns

George & Polly Phillips

George and Polly have created a set of super-smart renovated barns on part of George's family farm, all styled by uber Cotswolds interior designer Pippa Paton. Each barn has its own character but all have big pieces of art, impressive lighting and much comfort. The aim here is to provide an extremely comfortable base for families and groups of friends.
