Venture into the Cotswolds AONB, which begins approximately 3.5 miles from the property, and admire honeypot villages, thatched roof cottages and distinctive yellow limestone churches and stately homes, amidst a backdrop of lush rolling countryside. Visit Hidcote Manor Garden, one of the best-known arts & crafts gardens in the UK, and Snowshill Manor and Garden, a 16th century manor house and gardens, both owned by the National Trust. See the UNESCO World Heritage Site Blenheim Palace, an incredible Oxfordshire country house and residence of the Dukes of Marlborough, and Sudeley Castle, with its chapel, St. Mary's Sudeley, best known for being the burial place of King Henry VIII's sixth wife, Queen Catherine Parr.

‘The perfect spot for a quiet getaway or a fantastic base for exploring the beautiful Warwickshire countryside. The Lodge is excellent with everything you need in a home from home, the bed is probably the best we have slept in (including our own!) and the accommodation was immaculately clean and tidy when we arrived. Judith and Alasdair (and Billy the Airedale) are the perfect host, leaving us to our own devices but on hand for any questions or enquiries we had, nothing seemed to much trouble. The village is quaint with a number of walking routes around the area and the food in the Halford Bridge Inn is superb. Unless you just want to get stay in the village and chill, you will probably need a vehicle (we didn’t try public transport) but Shipston on Stour is only a couple of miles away and Stratford upon Avon and Warwick are within very easy reach. This is probably the best location we have stayed in in the last 10 years.’
