Take a look at 5 of the very best holiday homes in our Cheltenham collection. If these don’t meet your high expectations, then nothing will.
Apples to Oranges
Click to book Apples to Oranges now: from £187 per night Built in 1799, this beautiful Cotswold stone barn was recently converted by award-winning architect Henning Stummel to create a modern home with a deep appreciation for its rich history. The main living area was designed to preserve the original, exposed green oak timbers that make the double-height dining area so spectacular. In the piano room, guests will find a wood-burning fire where we highly recommend spending cosy evenings with your loved ones. The bedrooms can be reached via individual staircases off of the main living area. But the best part about Apples to Oranges is its position just between charming Cheltenham and the rolling hills of the Cotswolds. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
Click to book Stone Magnolia now: from £133 per night Just a short stroll away from fashionable Montpellier, this bright Edwardian apartment makes for the perfect Cheltenham break. Floor-to-ceiling arched windows let natural light stream into the living space, where cream sofas, chandeliers and lovingly curated vintage art ooze classic period elegance. We love the little touches here and there, including the colourful vases and knick-knacks the hosts have collected during their travels. It feels cosy, and though the kitchen is compact, there's still enough room to rustle up light lunches and breakfasts. Start your mornings with a cup of coffee on the small balcony, which overlooks the communal lawns. In the evenings, open a bottle of wine and gather around the table, chatting and laughing the night away, before nodding off in the sumptuous bedrooms. There are a wealth of upmarket shops, independent cafes and gourmet restaurants (including Michelin star-awarded) only a few minutes stroll away. Culture vultures can browse the local art displays at The Gardens Gallery or catch a show at the gorgeous Everyman Theatre (a fifteen-minute stroll away), but if you're in town for the races, the course is a quick ten-minute drive. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom
Click to book Endless Ether now: from £349 per night For a deep delve of an escape into nature, this ecological retreat is a total marvel on the Welsh borders. It's a little off the beaten track, but that's what makes it so blissful; settle in for a feeling of total seclusion. We adore just how well the home disappears into nature, almost camouflage-like, and its eco-credentials. It embraces its natural surroundings at every opportunity, with exposed brick, wooden beams and natural light prioritised – not to mention the stone fireplace and surprising upcycled moments, such as in the window frames and a handrail made from pruned branches. There's an outdoor sauna, perfect for unwinding in nature and surrounded by miles of greenery. And a barbecue and firepit means you can enjoy the great outdoors long into the evening. Host Joe has really infused this pad with warmth and meaning; you can tell this home is a passion project. Having seen it for ourselves, we're wildly passionate about it too. Sleeps up to 8 | 3 Bedrooms | 2 Bathrooms
Well Furlong Cottage
Click to book Well Furlong Cottage now: from £500 per night If you're looking for a boutique hotel-style destination with the privacy and comfort of a real home, look no further. Set on 80 acres, this Cotswolds home has been designed with luxury and ultimate comfort in mind, with a spa on the property that has a pool, jacuzzi, steam room and an Astro court that doubles as a tennis court and football pitch. The spa is shared only between the host’s family and your group, with the charming cottage itself being connected directly to the spa building, so you can travel between the two without ever going outside. You’ll probably want to spend some time outside though – the surrounding Gloucestershire countryside is a treat for the eyes and for the soul. The garden backs onto fields and you're a short walk away from Bredon Hill (a popular cycling destination), while a great local pub is just a quick fifteen-minute bike ride away, or closer by car. The cottage itself is modern and thoughtfully decorated, with bright skylights, roomy bathrooms and yellow and blue walls that create a relaxing space. After working up an appetite in the pool, gather around the wooden table for dinner before unwinding by the fire with a bottle of wine. Plus, your host is more than happy to help you arrange spa treatments and provide extras like toys, games, bikes and baby equipment – so it's unlikely you'll run out of things to do at this fabulous countryside retreat. Sleeps up to 6 | 3 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
The Cotswold Cedar
Click to book The Cotswold Cedar now: from £145 per night Living on the grounds of a 16th century country-house in the lush green Cotswolds (the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) already creates the ideal setting for nature lovers. Once you settle in with biscuits, fresh scones and fruits on arrival (among other goodies) and befriend the curious chickens, embark on a walk through the rolling Cotswold hills and valleys. While Netflix and cocoa are perfect for rainy days in, there is a whole world out there on sunnier days. The Cotswold Way is a trail that we’d definitely recommend, with plenty of historic pubs along the way, each serving their own collection of local ales. The home is located in Painswick, a village known as The Queen of the Cotswolds and characterised by beautiful narrow streets of honey coloured stone buildings dating back to the fifteenth century. Legend has it that the Devil won’t let a hundredth tree grow. There are all sorts of cafes and restaurants in and around the village, so make sure you ask the host, Hannah, for some recommendations. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
