The Central England/Cotswolds region


April 2008 - Online magazine has compiled a list of the top ten ‘paradise’ locations around the world that seem to have remained untouched by civilisation. The Cotswolds is 2nd Place!

The region is famous for its ancient mellow ‘honey’ coloured limestone villages that blend perfectly into the countryside and its bustling market towns. Many have scarcely altered since they grew up on the prosperity of the medieval wool trade in the 15th and 16th centuries and subsequently forgotten about for more then 300 years. This sequence of events now makes the Cotswolds region one of the most treasured, toured and vacationed in England and the UK for nowhere else will you see such timeless uniqueness and heart warming preservation on such a scale.

Many traditional villages within 15 minutes reach, offering tradition combined with chic

Ideal for antique hunters :visit the charming villages of Bourton on the Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds), Burford, Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Camden (plus many others), the larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for it’s beautiful Regency

architecture) or Oxford (the city of dreaming spires) and Stratford upon Avon just over 1 hour away.

For those looking for a bargain, Bicester Village offers most sought-after brands at prices reduced by up to 60%


Cirencester is the nearest town and is only 10 minutes drive, where you will find large Tesco, Waitrose, M&S and a good variety of shops/boutiques, pubs and restaurants.

The town of Cirencester (formerly named Corinium was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times) is home to the Corinium Museum, the Cirencester Abbey (the longest known Saxon church in England) and host to regular market days.

Golf at Wrag Barn or Burford Golf Club

Gliding at Cotswold Gliding Club

Polo at Cirencester Polo Club

Shooting at Clay Pigeon Shooting Cotswolds

Water skiing and sailing, climbing, river cruises, rally driving.

For those adrenaline seekers try some off road driving or perhaps a balloon ride

"Becalmed luxury"

We spent a week at the Lakes and had an excellent time. The house is very well appointed and clearly organised with one eye on young children (no fragile objects to break, or dangerous sharp items around) without sacrificing adult indulgence. Linen, crockery, cutlery, curtains, towelling etc. is all luxury hotel standard and chic. The plot has a lovely long view down the lake and our time there was peaceful and relaxed.

Now that the new spa has opened at the estate, the kids have a fabulous indoor pool and adults a great gym / spa in addition to all the outdoor pursuits.

Usefully Lechlade town has an excellent wine shop and provision store so meals in were excellent whilst Cirencester is a 20 min drive for a more comprehensive selection.

In all, home from home standards of appointment in a location that offers a variety of activities.
