The space
An amazing 'Downton Abbey' style 16th century penthouse apartment filled with original 17th century period features, and with far reaching views over the formal gardens out out to the Cotswold countryside. Newly refurbished, this property is an ideal base to explore the Cotswolds

Entrance hall - original oak flooring covered with antique rugs, grandfather clock, and a small library of modern novels, local guide books and board games.

The sitting room has a real open wood fire (kindling, firelighters and matches laid out so you can light it as soon as you arrive), two Laura Ashley snuggler sofas with warm throws, armchair, plush footrests, There is a huge art-deco oak desk under the original lead-lined picture windows, which overlook the formal gardens. A wall-mounted Samsung Smart TV is ready to stream your Netflix & Amazon Prime accounts.

Kitchen - brand new ‘Plain English’ painted shaker-style kitchen, with new Miele appliances (Dishwasher, oven and hob, washer-dryer) and Carrera marble work-surfaces, together with a cherry-wood dining table with bench seating for up to 8 diners. Whilst one person prepares dinner, the other can cosy-up into the padded velvet window-seat overlooking the gardens. The kitchen is stocked with glassware, crockery, cutlery, utensils, cookware, and an expresso-maker. Tea, coffee, sugar, salt/pepper and cooking oils are provided.

The master bedroom has a superking brass bed, a black chinoiserie dressing table with large mirror, a deep velvet armchair and coffee table, and a padded window seat overlooking the gardens.

The family bedroom has a Victorian iron double bed (which has been in our family for 80 years!) and a smaller single bed tucked under the window, and also has its own private seating area comprising a velvet sofa & matching armchair. There is a chest of drawers, mirror, and hanging rail.

The master bathroom has a huge double-ended bath, mounted on on raised platform and overlooking the formal gardens. There is a vintage sink and WC.

Bathroom 2 has a vintage sink & wc (shower temporarily not available due to a leak under investigation)

Gardens - guests have access to the two large formal lawns, and to the informal gardens of the 12 acre communal Wychwood Wild Garden immediately adjacent. Other gardens on site, including the formal ponds, are privately demised to our neighbours and can be admired form the lawns, but not used.

Guest access
The apartment is exclusively for your private use.

Other things to note
The apartment is on the 3rd floor and accessed via stairs, so is not suitable for guests with reduced mobility.

The apartment has an open staircase, and casement windows without locks (and with a looooong drop beneath!) so the accommodation is not suitable for children under 7.

We are not able to accommodate hen/stag parties, or parties, due to noise transfer to our neighbours.
