DRYHILL LODGE

SLEEPS 6 + 2


Crafted from golden Cotswold stone, with breathtaking panoramic views: Dryhill Lodge is the exclusive retreat of your dreams.

Tucked away in a secluded rural location, Dryhill Lodge is a stunning Cotswolds property, with an adjoining 18th century barn conversion which has been lovingly restored. It’s the perfect getaway for a large family, several couples, or anyone looking for a luxurious spot from which to explore the beautiful countryside. Enjoy hearty meals in local pubs, explore the area on day trips to castles, and enjoy fresh picnics on pretty walks in this designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

 
 

INSIDE


Far away from the bustle of the city, yet just five miles from culture-rich Cheltenham, this is the perfect base for your Cotswolds getaway. Enjoy a long lie in sumptuous beds, before padding along the corridor to brew fresh coffee.

Climb the wide flight of elegant oak stairs, cantilevered from the stone wall, into the airy living space and be amazed by the spectacular views from the first floor as you tuck into breakfast.

Return from invigorating walks in the countryside to the scent of your wood burning stove, and feel the comforting warmth from the underfloor heating seep through your socks.

In the evenings, watch the skies fade from blue to orange through floor-to-ceiling windows, and curl up in front of the fire with some chilled wine and a good film.


OUTSIDE


Tiptoe out to the secluded courtyard in the morning to see the skies come alive at sunrise, or sit out amongst the olive trees with a cup of tea. Upstairs in the Lodge, fling open the large sliding doors to listen to the birds, or do some gentle yoga on your spacious balcony.

The Lodge is set in two acres of vibrant woodland, perfect for exploring the area which is rich in history. Walk to the nearby iron age fort, and visit the local café serving homemade cakes with tea.

Spend the evenings making pizza in your very own wood-fired oven beside the barn, and sit drinking sparkling wine around the cosy firepit.


BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS


The main Lodge had two spacious super king bedrooms on the ground floor, which can be configured with twin beds. Each bedroom has access to its own outside terrace with a sun lounger, and you’ll find plenty of fitted wardrobe space. The luxurious bathroom suites have walk-in power showers, and you’ll find a cloakroom toilet on the ground floor.

In the adjoining Barn, the romantic mezzanine bedroom has a king-sized double bed. The living space has two large single sofas which convert into comfortable single beds, ideal for two children. The large luxury bathroom on the ground floor has a freestanding bath and walk-in power shower.


Pets

We are very much dog-friendly, and you’re welcome to bring them with you.
