Weir House is more than a cottage. It’s a stylish, luxurious and well-equipped country house. A luxury get-away with open fireplaces and four-poster beds. A family escape, built for children’s dens, hide-and-seek and dressing-up. There’s a puppet theatre, cupboards that overflow with toys, beanbags for flopping, garden play cabin and large plasma TV with surround sound.
People don’t grow up – they just change their toys. If that’s true, the Cotswold Shaker kitchen, shared spa, pool and gym will hit the spot nicely. After a family feast, throw open the doors and explore a playful Beaujolais under the vine-covered pergola or try a spot of croquet on the lawn.
Weir House offers the comfort and attention to detail of a luxury hotel; the privacy, independence and space of your own home; and the civilised ease and style of English country house living. All in a Cotswold idyll of honeyed manor houses, meandering streams and country lanes. The perfect Cotswolds escape.
The light and bright pool house with a 12m heated pool and sun loungers is the perfect place to spend an afternoon, whether playing with the kids or just looking for some relaxation. The pool is shared.
