DRYHILL HOUSE

SLEEPS 12


A gorgeous 17th-century country house, lovingly restored with elegant interiors, reflective of the owner’s travels to India, Africa and beyond.

Tucked away in a secluded rural location, Dryhill House is the largest of our properties, making it an ideal retreat for entertaining family and friends.

 
 

INSIDE


Dryhill House offers one of the finest luxury self-catering experiences in the Cotswolds, with six beautiful en-suite bedrooms, sleeping up to 12 people.

Soak up the morning sun in the large kitchen breakfast room with full-size Aga, before relaxing with your coffee in the adjoining orangery, or any of the 5 reception rooms.

After a day exploring the local area, watch a movie in our home cinema or relax in the music room, with its suspended log stove. There is also a cosy sitting room with an Inglenook fire place.

As day turns to night, you will be spoilt with options for entertaining and dining. Start with a cocktail in our Moroccan cellar bar or how about a personalised wine tasting in our intriguing vaulted cellar. Enjoy a hearty family meal in our spacious oak framed orangery, which leads into the Italian garden. For a more intimate dining experience, there is an oak and glass conservatory, full of character.


OUTSIDE


Spilling out from the front of the house, the walled courtyard garden brings the beautiful surrounding area to your doorstep. Marvel at the epic panoramic views and meander through the pristine terraced gardens, with mature trees and colourful flower borders.

Stretch and unwind with morning yoga on the spacious deck and put your pizza making skills to the test with our Valoriani wood-fired oven and Weber Charcoal BBQ. As the sun sets, enjoy the famous Cotswold sunset with a glass of local bubbly in our cedar hot tub.

Beyond the garden, this luxury rental property spills out into 14 acres of private land, with a vineyard on an ancient Roman terrace, beyond which a secluded lake offers an idyllic spot for those warm Summer evenings. Our tree house features an authentic safari tent and provides a magical space for youngsters to explore.


BEDROOMS & BATHROOMS


The 17th-century house offers 6 spacious en-suite bedrooms, all with a unique character of their own. This includes one Super King, one Super King / Twin, one King, one King / Twin, and two Twin rooms, spread out across the property, offering a peaceful sleep for all. One of the King bedrooms is located in an adjacent ground floor annex for added privacy.

The fantastic en-suite amenities are top of the range, allowing those with tired limbs to recover in a deep victorian bath or for your group to freshen up for the evenings with power showers.
