The Woodlands offers a luxury self-catering country stay in Chalford, the Golden Valley in the Cotswolds, with over 1 acre of private woodlands and gardens. Just two hours drive from central London, with miles upon miles of natural beauty right outside the front door, this 18th-century cottage extended house is perfectly placed for you to enjoy all that Cotswolds has to offer. Ancient history flows through over a thousand years’ history of the valley’s legacy as one of the country’s earliest cloth-making areas that have made it unique. Still, recent restorations undertaken by the owners have brought it right up to the modern-day, making this self-catering home a character-filled family retreat that is utterly wholesome in every way.
Explore the Cotswolds' natural beauty during the day and in the evening, sit out either in the front courtyard with a cool glass of local wine or enjoy some marshmallows by the pit fire on our bird view high decking, as the last of the day’s sunsets beyond the woods.
Stone-built fireplace, oak floorboards, and the iconic 9m long openable glass wall overlooking the valley, The Woodlands is as quintessential as bucolic. A home that celebrates the simple but beautiful things in life creates beautiful memories and happiness.
Rising with the sound of birdsong, pad downstairs and out into the garden and down to the woodlands for a quiet morning wander around, before back to The Woodlands’ kitchen with freshly provided local produces for a healthy breakfast. After filling up on coffee and toast, pack backpacks and head across the hill, through Chalford Village and up onto national woodlands or down to the canal to enjoy endless Cotswolds views over a picnic of the wonderful sandwich from the famous Lavender Bakery; on return, gather around the fire pit for some local bubbles and conversation as the light fades from the sky.
There is ample parking for up to four to six cars in the private car park. The kitchen includes a Rangemaster Gas cooker, electric oven, hob, American style fridge-freezer, dishwasher, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, and a washing-dryer. Due to the nature of the traditional country house style, there are a number of low doors throughout. There is an unfenced steep slope in the garden and a low fence on the patio; please supervise children at all times.
