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).Wychwood, opposite Saratoga in the courtyard, is bathed in light. It has a terrace off the drawing room, which looks down along the wisteria and apple tunnel. The large, comfortable kitchen, with a Cotswold fossil stone floor, provides the perfect setting for a lively family lunch. Double doors open in to a long, light, airy drawing room with French doors opening on to the terrace. At the far end is a golden Cotswold stone fireplace, flanked by bookshelves, and a cupboard with games. Stairs lead up to the landing, the twin room to the left is painted with a deep Farrow and Ball greenish-grey. There’s a beautiful mellow antique walnut secretaire, and the en-suite bathroom is tiled in faux Carrara marble. To the right of the landing is the double bedroom, with a mahogany four poster bed. A Victorian chair and a marble topped dressing table complete the room. Its en-suite shower room is tiled in a beige faux marble, which matches the real marble of the washstand.
