Property Ref: 214
Our 12 award winning cottages, in the heart of the Cotswolds, were converted from the Victorian stableyard and outbuildings of Bruern Abbey. They are stylish, luxurious and well-equipped, country houses in miniature, with open fires and 4-poster beds as well as state-of-the-art bathrooms and kitchens. Beautifully landscaped communal gardens with pool and croquet lawn. We have a new spa with indoor pool, gym and beauty centre. Bruern is a children's paradise with a two-storey playhouse in the outdoor play area, a climbing frame, croquet, football nets and a big indoor playroom with toys and dressing up box. Aintree Cottage itself sleeps 6 plus cot. The master bedroom has a 4-poster bed and and ensuite. There are two twin bedrooms. Features include a private terrace, oak beamed kitchen, rustic decor and open fire. Other services include: babysitting and maid service by arrangement, milk and newspaper deliveries, essential shopping, frozen meals to order and broadband.
Bruern is an ideal base for family excursions in and around the Cotswolds - Cotswold Wildlife Park, Cogges farm museum, Bourton-on-the-Water, Birdland, Cotswold Motor Museum and toy collection, model village, Dragonfly maze, Blenheim Palace and Folly Farm waterfowl to name just a few. There is a good soft play centre in Carterton - only 8 miles from Bruern.
Because we want parents to have a good time, we've lined up some local babysitters and have prepared a parents' 'peace of mind' kit for all those essentials - alarms, socket covers, door wedges, bed guards, cupboard safety locks, plastic crockery and so on. While we want everyone to enjoy their holiday, we take safety very seriously and children under 16 are only allowed in the swimming pool with a supervising adult. Access is via a coded panel which only an adult can reach and operate.
