Awarded 5 Star Gold by Enjoy England, this three-storey Grade II house has bags of period detail – flagstone floors, exposed beams, Cotswold stone features, log-burning fires – combined with contemporary style and modern day luxuries. Perfect for families and special celebrations.
The dining area is enormous, its oak table comfortably seating a host of your family and friends. Outside there are landscaped gardens, a terrace for al fresco dining, a heated swimming pool, hot tub, games room with ping pong and pool and a playground – all set in acres of tranquil Cotswold countryside. A very special place.
Wellacres House is set on its own in rolling Cotswold countryside with six acres of gardens and grounds to enjoy – all completely private. You can step out from the Family Room onto a big terrace with a barbecue and plenty of tables and chairs for al fresco dining.
The stylish heated outdoor pool is set in a decked terrace close to the house, fenced in for safety. The hot tub is open all year round and the pool is open from May to September.
There’s a big lawn with plenty of room for games or a run around, and a big snail mound – letting children and adults alike survey their domain.
A stone’s throw away from the main terrace is the games room in a big old Cotswolds barn. With a pool table, table football, outdoor table tennis and lots of fun stuff for children of all ages, from toddlers to teenagers.
Just the place for the children to hang out – or for mums and dads to let off steam. Children will also love the playground with swings and a king-size trampoline set amongst the copse.
