The rolling hills of the Cotswolds—rising from the meadow banks of the upper Thames to the Cotswolds Edge escarpment above the Severn Valley and Evesham Vale—support an irresistible way of living that feels like coming home. Over centuries, the Cotswolds’ rare honeystone bedrock and fertile grasslands anchored it as the heart of the country’s wool trade. Its treasured landscape is one of rambling green farmland, picturesque stone villages and market towns, with slopes and valleys of ancient woodlands.
Set in a beautiful Cotswolds village location, this luxurious, five bedroom house, worth over £3,000,000, is designed to the highest standard of modern living. Here, you can step out of your front door into the gentle beauty of the Cotswolds - alive with birds, broadleaf trees, wildflower meadows and sparkling streams. Whether you wish to walk for minutes of hours, this incredible home is the perfect place to bookend each adventure.
The charming market towns of the Cotswolds are as individual as they are inviting - beautiful compositions of honey coloured cottages, mediaeval churches, Georgian townhouses and independent shops and cafes. The Quaker town of Charlbury, surrounded by the remains of historic Wychwood Forest, earned its place on the Cotswolds map for its exemplary glove making.
Witney, on the banks or the River Windrush, is still known for its coveted, luxury wool blankets, while Woodstock offers up the World Heritage Site of Blenheim Palace. This 18th century stately home is a rare example of the fleeting English Baroque style with stunning gardens designed by the esteemed landscape architect, Capability Brown.
Gloucester Old Spot pork, Clarence Court eggs, Evesham Vale asparagus and Daylesford Organic Creamery milk and cheese—Cotswolds produce is amongst the UK’s finest. So gather local delicacies from the farm shops of pretty Burford, or head to nearby coaching inns like the Royal Oak in Ramsden or The Bell in Charlbury, who work hand in hand with local producers.
Culturally, the Cotwolds has a place on the international stage thanks to its celebrated festivals. Wilderness, held annually at Cornbury Park, is a four-day festival of escapism beneath the stars, dancing, experimental arts and culinary feasts. Or perhaps Blenheim Palace’s Nocturne Live series is more your scene, with the likes of the Sugababes, Melanie C, Chaka Khan and Sister Sledge taking to the Great Court.
Only 30 minutes away is Oxford, City of Dreaming Spires and home to Oxford University and its celebrated gothic and baroque architecture. Beneath the city’s skyline of slender steeples, stately domes, stone gargoyles and brick chimneys is a maze of narrow, cobbled streets hiding independent theatres, lawned cloisters, bustling brasseries and cafes.
