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).Accessed via a spiral staircase, the enormous, welcoming open plan drawing room/dining room/kitchen is flooded by light, with six windows that look out to staggering views. On one side are views across the walled garden, fields and wood to Stow-on-the-Wold in the distance, and on the other, over the stable courtyard and parkland of Bruern Abbey. The décor throughout is fresh and pretty. Guests staying in Cheltenham have their own private summerhouse and terrace at the end of the garden, with garden furniture and a barbecue for al fresco dining. To the front there is a wonderful sweep of lawn and a 150ft long border, backed by a wisteria and apple tunnel. Property references UKC1144 to UKC1155 can be booked together to accommodate larger groups. Shop 1½ miles, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
