Pull up to this glorious countryside escape and you'll instantly fall in love. This gorgeously golden-hued Cotswold stone retreat for ten is simply magical, offering a blissfully tranquil escape from the every day complete with heated swimming pool, bubbling hot tub, cinema room and games room.

Sleeping ten in five bedrooms, three of which are en suite, this is a wonderful getaway for family get togethers or friends looking to meet up, whether it's celebrating something special or simply to spend much needed quality time together. There's plentiful living space inside and out, including three dining areas and an outdoor kitchen, so you'll always have room for everyone whatever time of year it is.

A smidge over two hours from London, this beautiful home that's dog friendly too is perfect for a quick weekend break or something longer. Set on the edge of the beautiful Cotswolds, surrounded by pastures and ancient woodland, there's plenty to see and do, if you can bare to pull yourself away from this epic homestay.

The cosy sitting room is just a dream to retire to at the end of the day, with a sumptuous sofa to sprawl on and gorgeous leather armchairs. Nestled around the flickering wood burner and with underfloor heating too, you'll be super snug during winter months but on hot summer days, the cool flooring and the open plan feel will make this a hideaway from the heat of the day. Benefitting from a drinks bar and a picture frame television with Sky, this is a fabulous spot whether you're chatting over a tipple or two or watching your favourite box set.

Film lovers will adore the incredible cinema room complete with 65-inch television that also has Sky, whilst the fabulous games room is home to a pool table, dart board, children's tepee and board games and a Smart TV also with Sky. In addition, there's a separate snug/office, perfect if you want some quiet time to yourself or if you need to catch up on some emails.

Throughout the living areas there are three Amazon Echo speakers with Alexa, so you can create the playlist to your holiday.


The spacious kitchen with underfloor heating is open plan, complete with an informal dining area with L-shaped seating and a bench. Overlooking the garden, patio doors open out on to the garden and pool, perfect to let the soft summer breeze waft through. You'll find the kitchen fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to rustle up feasts with a gas range cooker, dishwasher, larder fridge freezer, microwave and all the other essentials including a Smeg coffee machine and an ice making machine.

In addition, there's a utility room and a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The formal dining room, next to the sitting room, is simply beautiful and offers seating for ten plus a gorgeous chandelier overhead, plus underfloor heating. This is the perfect spot for celebratory meals, in fact, we think Christmas would be just wonderful here!

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Spellbound:

Lovely place, with ample space for eight of us, nice flow between the main rooms, and plenty to keep everyone entertained. Pool was lovely, I'm happy it was heated! Cinema room a great place to play games and watch films. The snug was also nice to have a bit of quiet time. The board games were a hit with the kids and adults alike!

We had a lovely warm comfortable stay at spellbound. we loved the idyllic setting, the peace and quiet and yet plenty for us to do with the hot tub and pool table, darts, etc. The Kitchen is well equipped and plenty of space for meals, board games, and relaxing even if it rains. Thankyou.

Quality and amount of linens towels etc was very good. Great welcome pack and no skimping on basics such as dishwasher tablets etc.

We love the unique idea of leaving a selection of gins & tonic for your guests. We always make sure that we have an evening on the 'gin terrace' if the weather is nice!

Completely beautiful and fabulously equipped and furnished house. Perfect in every way.

It was a really lovely place to relax and kick back.

Wonderful escape - but still near so many great places to visit! We loved the robes!

A really perfect venue for a family and dogs. We had the most wonderful few days with something special for everyone. Highly recommended.

What an amazing stay we’ve all had. We felt really looked after and the gorgeous Christmas tree, beautiful decorations around the house and the roaring log fire meant we had the most ‘Christmasy’ we’ve ever had! The view of the church from the kitchen is also truly wonderful and such a lovely space to have breakfast. Thank you for all the wonderful local products - we loved the coffee!

The kitchen and the outdoor dining was so nice we never bothered to try local pubs and restaurants.excellent food offerings in Cirencester to cook and barbecue back at Spellbound! Was just as advertised. Very high quality, fully kitted out, very nice welcome hamper, beautiful location. Would definitely look to return.

This house worked really well for our multigenerational holiday with the pool, hot tub, games room and so many walks and lovely places to visit nearby. The house was beautifully presented and so comfortable.

Overall a truly excellent retreat. Beautiful property and excellent location

Truly excellent news place. We loved the comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. We felt very at home and relaxed. Highly recommend

Amazing location if you like walking. Perfect for well behaved dogs (there are sheep around). Cottage has everything for an amazing family break.

A delightful cottage in a sublime setting surrounded by fields and a view looking down to the church. Wonderfully equipped and very clean. The house made a perfect base for exploring the surrounding country side and area.

The cottage was beautiful and perfectly suited for our two families (four adults and three young children) to enjoy

Stunning location, all the facilities you could wish for an enjoyable stay at the Lodge. Lovely welcome hamper.

Beautiful cottage in the most amazing setting! The pool, hot tub, bedrooms, cinema room etc were the highlights of our stay along with the surrounding sheep!

Excellent house in a beautiful setting.

What a wonderful place! We had a great time in the lodge and across The Cotswolds. This was the first time the family had been together since Covid and i made it even more special to have such a great place to stay!

What a fantastic stay! We had such a great time staying in this beautiful, homely property, with a day visit to the wildlife park. Thank you!

A fabulous house. We've had a lovely long weekend using the pool and hot tub and great walks. Thank you.
