Windrush Hyde Estate is centrally positioned in the Cotswolds to allow you to explore the surrounding picturesque honey stoned towns and villages.
The Windrush Hyde Estate is the perfect marriage of historic charm and contemporary style, in the heart of the Cotswolds. Stay in this centuries-old honey-stoned estate and enjoy tradition and luxury, side by side. The accommodation, for up to 30 adults and six children, comprises the Manor House and four converted barns of varying sizes, making it the ideal venue for family gatherings or for friends to get together and enjoy each other’s company while allowing those who want to retain their private space.
At Windrush Hyde, old blends with new and a certain magic happens. Here’s an exposed stone wall, a huge original fireplace and an antique bureau; there’s a quirky cinema room with surround sound, a snug with Sky TV and an Xbox, a hot tub in the dovecote. Play pool in the baronial hall, watched over by a suit of armour. Retire to a four-poster bedroom with White Company linens and a luxury ensuite.
Outside, the luxury begins all over again, with stunning, formal gardens designed by Jinny Blom. There’s also a tennis court, a swimming pool in the summer months, and plenty of seating for when it’s Pimm’s O’ Clock. The 14-acre estate makes space for a lake, where you can go swimming or boating, a woodland playground for the children, a number of gardens and orchards and a second hot tub. Throw in the Cotswold views and it is just possible you’ve found Heaven!
Booking Tip: Outside the peak season, it's possible to book a two-night weekend stay from just £10,900; checking in on the Friday at 4pm, and checking out on Sunday at 11am. Perfect for a weekend celebration.
