Set in a peaceful, rural Cotswold valley and in the grounds of lovely Aylworth Manor, The Granary offers comfortable, high-quality self-catered accommodation for up to four people.
A welcome hamper with bread, butter, milk and all the essentials is set out for the arrival of guests.
All is beautifully converted with limestone and oak flooring – all is light and stylish. On the ground floor The Granary offers one double bedroom with ensuite shower room, and one twin- bedroom with bathroom. Soap and lotions from The White Company are included.
The rest of The Granary opens out to a spacious oak beamed sitting room with two, large comfortable sofas and large flat-screen television. The property has central heating and an open fireplace with a basket of logs alongside for chilly days and evenings.
At the other end of the sitting room is a well-equipped open-plan kitchen with dining table and chairs. Overlooking the sitting room and up a few steps is a mezzanine floor with another sofa – a perfect place for private retreat and relaxation. There is a utility room on the ground floor with washer/dryer and space for muddy boots, jackets and holiday gear.
Outside, the gardens are well tended and in 2015 open for the first time as part of the NGS, National Gardens Scheme. Guests may also enjoy the use of the tennis court and barbecue.
Although old, both the Manor and Granary use sustainable fuels, with solar panels providing electricity and a woodchip biomass boiler supplying all the estate’s hot water and central heating needs.
Do pack wellies and a torch for your travels and stay. Owners, Joanna and John are nearby on the estate and also offer lovely bed and breakfast accommodation for guests staying at Aylworth Manor.
