Surrounded by the beautiful Slad Valley, this Georgian home will tick all your holiday boxes. Swim in the heated outdoor pool, enjoy a game of tennis on the private court, or kick back with a movie in the cinema room – there’s something for everyone here. When dinner rolls around, dine in the orangery, in the garden or in the dining room – and while you’re there, see if you can find the secret drinks cabinet, hidden behind the panelled wall. If you can tear yourself away, you’ll find hikes on your doorstep, including the Cotswold and Wysis Way, and a country pub within walking distance.
