SOUTH WEST detached eco 4 bedroom/4 bathroom property (270m2) was featured in “House and Garden" Magazine, described as "the most striking modernist house in Cotswolds, extraordinary property with first class catering on tap".

In July 2010 "The Times", described it as" in top 20 best waterside developments in Europe, offering the latest in eco design and luxury". Larchwood Lodge was extensively covered in September 2010 issue of Essential Kitchen Bathroom & Bedroom. Sixteen pages of pictures and editorial, the biggest coverage ever received in the life of this prestigious magazine.

Described as a stunning “House on the Lake” with spectacular views, one of the most luxurious developments in the country.Most recently “Larchwood Lodge featured in Sunday Times 50 Coolest UK Cottages: “Eco-chic Larchwood Lodge is basically a photo shoot waiting to happen. It's on a sustainable development designed by the likes of Jade Jagger, Kelly Hoppen and Philippe Starck, set in 650 acres of clear-water lakes and ancient woodlands — yet it's within 15 minutes of the cutest of Cotswolds towns, Bourton-on-the-Water.”The latest coverage we have received was in a prestigious London's “City Square Mile Magazine” descried as “Larchwood Lodge is a monolithic masterpiece: a design so grand that it would have Kevin McCloud reaching for similes from the sky, a relatively modest four-bed, four-bath count – however, given that one of those bedrooms doubles up as a cinema room and another has a surface area larger than most people's flats, it's by no means a meagre affair”

The Cotswolds region

Region:

Online magazine AskMen 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%
