Set in the gorgeous, sleepy village of Draycott, The Laurels is just five miles down the road from the quintessential Cotswold towns of Chipping Campden, Broadway and Moreton-in-Marsh. Sleeping ten, it's a symphony of tasteful design, with breathtaking living spaces and gorgeous bedrooms, sympathetically designed gardens featuring a hot tub and bags of parking too. This is a great retreat for family stays - a great deal of thought has been put into providing all you might need for little ones. It's dog friendly too - perfect for exploring the gorgeous Cotswold countryside.

The lovely sitting room is cosy and warm, with a stunning open fire, plush seating and bags of charm - perfect for curling up with a glass or two on cold winter evenings, or for relaxing together after a busy day exploring. If you want to escape, there's a cosy snug, complete with T.V - perfect for little ones to retreat to (or not-so-little ones!). There's a SONOS music system set up throughout the house so you need never be very far from your favourite tunes. Outside in the expansive gardens, there are two seating areas so you can make the most of the sunshine on warmer days.


If you like space to cook up a storm, the kitchen at The Laurels won't disappoint! This huge area has lots of workspace, fab American-style fridge/freezer and all the amenities (plus more) than even the most dedicated chef might need. It's also fabulously equipped for kiddies too, so you don't need to bring things with you (a massive plus when packing!). There's a great table for dining - the open kitchen/dining space makes this a great sociable space. When the finer weather is here, you'll also find a great BBQ area in the garden for those balmy evenings when all you want to do is eat al fresco.


There are five gorgeous bedrooms. On the first floor there is the beautiful main bedroom which is a super-king with shower/ensuite. On this floor you will also find one king bed and a standard double. The two bedrooms on the top floor are also family rooms so can accommodate a little one too if needed, one is a super-king with a day bed and ensuite and the other is a double with day bed and basin room. Each room is beautifully decorated with super-comfy beds, sumptuous linens, luxurious soft furnishings and pretty wallpaper.


There are two en suite shower rooms and a fabulous family bathroom with deep, sumptuous bath. Each of the bathrooms boast heated towel rails, super fluffy towels and oodles of hot water - perfect for unwinding after a day's exploring.

Outdoor Space

The stunning enclosed gardens offer bags of space for little ones to run about (plus your four-legged friends). There's plenty of seating too, plus a hot tub and BBQ, making this more like an outside living space than just a garden.


The Laurels is situated in a quiet village. One of the many attractions of the house is the peace and tranquillity. We would kindly ask guests to respect our neighbours and refrain from playing loud music outside or whilst in the hot tub.


There is parking for up to 6 cars at The Laurels.


The Laurels has WiFi throughout.


Two dogs are very welcome at The Laurels, we charge £35 per dog per week or short break.


Please note, The Laurels does not accept stag or hen groups.

In the Area

Being in the midst of the Cotswolds, there is plenty to do in the area. For garden-lovers, you're just up the road from lovely Batsford Arboretum, whilst history-lovers might like the eccentric Snowshill Manor, home to an incredible collection of artefacts obtained by just one man - the collection is so huge, he had to move out of the manor and moved in above the garage! Sudeley Castle, home of the surviving queen of Henry VIII, is a must too in nearby Winchcombe. Of course, nothing beats just exploring the lovely villages and towns in the area - Morton-in-Marsh, Stow-on-the-Wold, Broadway,Winchcombe and Chipping Campden are just a few of the lovely villages well worth a visit. You'll find gorgeous tea rooms, pubs a-plenty and quirky little shops to fulfil any pangs for shopping, whilst nearby Cheltenham, Stratford-upon-Avon or Cirencester are perfect for bigger shops. Cirencester also has a great museum about the history of the town, back to when it was an important Roman settlement.
