Rissington Hill House holds a wonderful location in the very heart of the Cotswolds, close to a variety of picture-postcard villages with caramel-coloured stone cottages, winding lanes and ancient pubs. Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and Burford are all within a fifteen-minute drive making this the perfect option for those looking to truly explore the area.

Set on a secluded farming estate on the edge of the village of Great Rissington, the house offers guests privacy and tranquillity, while a huge selection of excellent amenities and attractions are within easy reaching distance. The accommodation is spread between the impressive manor house and the rustic stables, both have been recently renovated and today seamlessly combine their original charm and character with upgraded, luxurious interiors. In the main house there is plenty of room for the whole group to come together and socialise with a number of entertaining rooms including a large drawing room, sitting room, a formal dining room as well as a fully-equipped kitchen with all the tools guests could possibly need to whip up a delicious meal. On the first floor are the first of the bedrooms, a double room and a single. Upstairs are the remaining four bedrooms, three with king-size beds and one twin, each boasts en-suite facilities.

Outside, the large grounds are beautifully maintained with large lawns ideal for games or for children to explore. There are numerous seating areas, ideal for relaxing with a refreshing beverage after action-packed days spent exploring the fabulous Cotswolds.

What you should know…

  • One of the bedrooms on the ground floor is a single room and so is perhaps best suited for an older child or teenager
  • There is a water feature in the garden and so small children should not be left to explore alone
