(Reference number: 78874) Boasting gongs, awards, and stars from every tourist body going, you can set your expectations high at this elegant cottage, sunk deep in the heart of the Cotswolds. Formerly 19th-century stables, the buildings have been lovingly converted into a series of luxury holiday homes within the immaculate grounds of the Bruern's Estate. With the privacy of your own cottage and shared facilities to rival any five-star hotel, this place ticks every box. For the adults, expect a spa (awarded by Tatler as one of the UK's best), a fitness centre, and a heated indoor swimming pool to keep on top of fitness. Kids, meanwhile, can let off some steam on the large communal lawns and adventure playground when the sun shines. And on drizzly days, an indoor play cabin (crammed with toys) and games rooms for the older ones (with all the console tech) should keep everyone happy. Back at home, four-poster beds, drapes, and ornate rugs all convey a sumptuous luxury, but this is a home that welcomes family life too. Children's books, board games, and DVDs are on the well-stocked shelves, and there's plenty of kids amenities - just ask the host. When it's time to explore further afield, Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold, and Burford are all close by for antique browsing, cream teas, and hearty pub grub. Home truths: *Many of the amenities, like the pool and the children’s areas, are shared *There's a welcome basket full of essentials, plus a few luxuries – expect champagne and local farm produce *The estate offers an extensive menu of homemade dishes that can be left frozen in your fridge, ready to be heated up *Child-friendly amenities such as a cot and highchair are available upon request at no extra cost *Your host is happy to help with restaurant reservations and babysitting recommendations *Luggage storage is available should you arrive at the property early *The nearby village has a few shops to pick up basics - or head to Chipping Norton (twelve-minute drive) * The home is only a ten-minute taxi ride from Kingham railway station .
