SLEEPS 4 (* potentially plus 4 people – see below note)
Dryhill Lodge is a unique, eco-friendly property crafted from Cotswold stone and enjoys wonderful panoramic views to the far horizon. The luxury property sits in 2 acres, nestles into mature woodland to the rear and has a large flat lawn with raised flower beds. There is ample parking for 4 cars on the gravel driveway, an adjacent tap for washing your boots or dogs (or both) and a log store with wood harvested at Dryhill.
Dryhill Lodge has underfloor heating throughout and a glazed wood burning stove to keep you cosy after your walk in the countryside with your friends, both human and canine: we are definitely dog-friendly.
On the ground floor, the bedroom accommodation is luxurious and there are options for a super king or twin bed configuration. Each bedroom has access to its own outside terrace with a sun lounger.
The sophisticated bathroom suites have walk-in showers with two power shower options. There is ample fitted wardrobe space to hang all your clothes and store your belongings. The ground floor also has a cloakroom WC and secure utility room, with boot holders and coat hooks plus a sink and extra fridge freezer.
There is a study with a desktop computer and a Bose device which is configured to play music. Further along, you can enjoy our coffee bar/ breakfast room with a dedicated Sage coffee machine to make the perfect cappuccino. In the summertime, this coffee bar opens to the rear into a secluded courtyard with table and chairs, and to the front, you can sit out amongst the olive trees.
The first floor is accessed by a wide flight of elegant oak stairs, which are cantilevered out from a feature wall crafted from local Cotswold stone. The living space above is light and airy: great for watching the approaching weather with spectacular views for over 50 miles around.
Enthusiastic cooks will enjoy the high-specification kitchen, featuring a Siemens steam oven, separate fan oven/ microwave, and a 4 ring induction hob with a pop-up extractor. There is also a Liebherr larder fridge and a separate wine store for both red and white wine. The dining area seats six and offers another impressive view.
The sitting area has a contemporary corner log stove, a large screen TV and a sound system with Bose speakers. There is high-speed internet throughout the property to facilitate streaming. Leading from the sitting room through large sliding doors is an outside balcony with tables and chairs.
As part of our eco credentials, Dryhill Lodge has LED lighting throughout, our drinking water is spring-fed (no need for single-use plastic bottles) and a significant investment in insulation has reduced energy consumption. There is a plug-in point externally for hybrid cars and we recycle our waste into segregated containers.
We look forward to welcoming you to Dryhill Lodge, your sophisticated retreat in the Cotswolds.
