Once a stable, this beautiful country house nestles in stunning grounds with use of a pool and many children’s facilities.

In the heart of the Cotswolds, between Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford, Bruern Holiday Cottages offer the comfort and attention to detail of a good hotel, combined with the privacy, independence and space of home, amidst the civilised ease and style of English country house living. Even though the properties are self-catering, generous welcome packs are provided, as well as a few little luxuries including champagne, homemade cakes and local artisan cheese. A paradise for children, there are three playgrounds, a play cabin, toy cars and many more facilities to entertain all ages, including a games room. Featured in Tatler’s ‘101 Best Spas’, the facilities on-site provide the perfect setting to relax in, with an indoor heated swimming pool, complete with patio doors opening onto a beautiful Italianate garden, with sun loungers on the terrace. Those eager to keep fit can take advantage of the gym, which includes a running machine, power plate, exercise balls, rowing machine, cross trainer, weights and an exercise bike. Those less keen can relax at the spa and have a treatment (at cost, by arrangement direct with owner).

Aintree, located at the back of the courtyard, was once a stable and is now a beautiful country house. The front door opens into the large, grand drawing room, with pictures, 18th century engravings and walls stencilled by Jocasta Innes. A wood art nouveau sideboard is full of toys and board games, and another treat for the children is the den under the stairs, with its dressing-up clothes and more toys. Opening out of this room, and facing west through the French doors to its own trellised arbour, is the oak beamed kitchen and dining room, floored in pale apricot terracotta. A flight of stairs, festooned with spy prints of Victorian and Edwardian worthies, heads up from the drawing room to the gallery. On the right is the master bedroom, big, airy and dominated by a magnificent mahogany four-poster bed. To the left of the staircase are the two twin rooms and a bathroom. Property references UKC1144 to UKC1155 can be booked together to accommodate larger groups. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
