Absolute privacy, your own courtyard garden and an owner at the end of the drive for tips on the Cotswolds – perfect. Kiloran has restored the listed, late 18th-century granary and introduced everything to make you feel cosseted: an elegant wood-burner and a drenching shower, heated bathroom floors and smart garden recliners, super crockery and glasses and a hugely comfortable bed. Downstairs is a small well-equipped kitchen and a pretty sitting room with a Yorkstone hearth and an oak mantel, creamy white sofas, and a sunny window seat with views up over the fields to the tree-lined hill. The builder called it ‘the Cotswolds tardis’ and so it is: spacious for two and more than adequate for a couple with two little ones (a travel cot, a high chair and a camp bed are provided). The steep pitch roof creates a lofty feel and there are views from the bed towards Wren House where Kiloran runs B&B. Six hundred feet above sea level and with no light pollution whatsoever, the stars shine brightly here. Honeystone villages, foodie pubs and charming country estates surround you.
