Cottage of the week – Larchwood Lodge
Larchwood Lodge, our new cottage of the week in the Cotswolds is bound to alter a few perceptions of what a holiday cottage can be. A truly stunning lakeside property within a private, gated boutique development, it combines great looks and an equally impressive location to make one of the most welcoming holiday experiences available.
Chic and stylish are just two of the many positive adjectives we could use to describe Larchwood Lodge. The property’s open-plan design allows for a great appreciation of its impressive contemporary décor. You’ll find polished wooden floors, a neutral colour scheme and plenty of reflective surfaces, which work with the property’s glass front to allow plenty of natural light and an unrivalled appreciation of the region’s beauty.
Larchwood Lodge’s bedrooms offer their own stunning views. The ground floor master bedroom doubles as a cinema room with 6ft bed and HD projector while the three first floor bedrooms also offer LCD TVs. Other additions vying for your leisure time include three DVD/CD players, Blu-Ray player, an additional two LCD TVs and a Nintendo Wii. More active pursuits at the property include use of kayak and bikes (by arrangement), a football pitch, treehouses and dens, canoeing and fly-fishing.
It’s perhaps the greatest testament to the beauty of Larchwood Lodge that we have barely mentioned that it’s set in one of the UK’s most stunning regions. In fact, the property is so well situated that your only likely dilemma is deciding what to visit first. The charming villages of Bourton-on-the-Water (the Venice of the Cotswolds), Burford, Stow-on-the-Wold, Moreton-in-Marsh and Chipping Campden are all close by. Larger spa towns of Bath (a World Heritage Site) and Cheltenham (famed for its beautiful Regency architecture) are equally accessible and filled with relaxing leisure opportunities.
We’re not the only ones to recognise the stunning charms of Larchwood Lodge. The property was recently featured in The Sunday Times’ ’50 Cool Cottages for 2011’ feature. As a result we expect it to be even more popular this year. Please visit the property’s listing on cottages4you to make a booking and find out more.
