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).Epsom Cottage stands as the mirror image of Goodwood across the courtyard, built for the stable grooms. The drawing room/dining room is flooded with light on three sides from the large windows, which look onto the courtyard, garden and the parkland of Bruern Abbey beyond. At the dining end of the room, a couple of writing tables offer an array of tourist leaflets and brochures. The kitchen is on the other side of the hall, with its marble surfaces, a Belfast sink and blue and white Spode china on the walls. The deep blue grey master bedroom on the first floor is dominated by a splendid carved 18th century four poster bed. All of the bedrooms are individually decorated in a unique style. Epsom is popular for its large attractive garden. Step through the French windows in the kitchen to the terrace with vines, rose-covered pergola, garden furniture and barbecue. Opposite are wide borders blooming in every shade of pink, white and crimson. Property references UKC1144 to UKC1155 can be booked together to accommodate larger groups.
