Offering comfort and attention to detail, this luxury property sits in beautiful grounds with use of an indoor swimming pool and much more!

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 with owner).

Shipton Cottage has been converted from a long, low Cotswold stone barn and is all on one level. It has a seaside feel to it, pale, cool and full of light. When you enter from the drive to the big open-plan drawing room/dining room/kitchen, you can see straight through the French doors and windows to the terrace and apple orchard beyond. The atmosphere is very much of the present, with natural floors in stone and wood, a high pitched ceiling with ancient beams, and a cool simplicity of decoration. The focal point of the room is a white ceramic Scandinavian wood burner, Gustavian in inspiration. Over the blue and white dining table, painted by Thomas Lane in a moorish design, hangs a Victorian rise and fall brass pendant lamp. Contemporary paintings and prints fill the walls. At the other end of the drawing room, a door leads into the master bedroom, which has a high pitched roof and walls of pale grey. The floor is pale and polished, and the antique French black metal four-poster is a large cream painted French armoire. Doors lead out from both master bedroom and drawing room to the terrace and the orchard. Round the gnarled and ancient apple trees in the velvety green grass are deep borders of roses, peonies, lilies and poppies, over which can be seen the roofs of Bruern Abbey. Property references UKC1144 to UKC1155 can be booked together to accommodate larger groups. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
