The Manor At Windrush Hero

The Manor at Windrush Heart of England

700 years of history and bang up to date

If you have an idea in your mind of the perfect Cotswold manor house, all mellow honeyed stone, deep fireplaces and formal gardens, it won’t be far different from The Manor at Windrush. 700 years have gone into the making of this stunning and luxurious country escape and it shows in every little detail.

Every room has an abundance of exposed beams, the sunlight filters through leaded windows, and plush velvet sofas are ready to catch you when you drop into them. The history that speaks to you, does so alongside present-day luxuries, from the kitchen equipped with Miele appliances to the snug with Sky TV, Movie System and Xbox.

Outside, there’s a whole new world to discover. Wander through stunning formal gardens, possibly the most beautiful in all of the Cotswolds. Discover the secret cinema, the private boating lake and the shared woodland playground. Have a knockabout on the shared tennis court, then flop into your own private, hidden hot tub or fire up the Weber barbecue on the lawned lower garden.

When the day is done, which is your bedroom? The Bentley Bedroom with its four-poster bed, the Windrush Bedroom with its luxury marble ensuite or one of the attic rooms, where there’s a family suite and another super king or twin bedroom? Whichever of the five restful rooms is yours, you can expect luxury bed linens and bathrobes and 100 Acres botanical toiletries.

The Manor at Windrush can be booked for up to 10 adults and 2 children, or you can book the entire Windrush Hyde Estate if you have a larger party.
