Walkers will heave a sigh of relief – depending on the weather you’ll arrive to a roaring fire and panelled drawing room or a sun-filled patio with stretching lawns. There are friendly dogs, tea and a vast choice of Jane’s cake either way! Nip up the well-whipped stairs to unconventional bedrooms: romantic four-poster, vast suite, pretty single; get lost in a French emperor bed and watch TV on the big screen. Bathrooms have power showers, views and painted floorboards. Feast on Graham’s home-reared sausages and bacon overlooking the Cotswold Hills and stride out to country houses, Westonbirt Arboretum or the famous Old Spot pub.
