Abercrombie & Kent Villas Announce Addition of Magnificent Painswick Court to Portfolio

May 13, 2013 -

Abercrombie & Kent Villas announces the addition of Painswick Court to the Cotswold Collection. Home to King Charles I during the Siege of Gloucester in 1643, Painswick Court is a superb example of stately English style and picturesque beyond belief.

Justly nicknamed ‘Queen of the Cotswolds’, it lies in the historic town of Painswick and offers a peerless country retreat experience for up to 14 guests.

Combining ancient architecture with high spec modern facilities, this fabulous country residence resonates with antiquity. There is the magnificent panelled courtroom with a 16th century fireplace, an original hidden stone staircase and an impressive wooden panelled dining room seating up to 20 guests. The main door even retains original gunshot scars from the Siege of Gloucester four centuries ago.

7 beautifully furnished guestrooms, including the King Charles Suite where the monarch slept, cocoon guests in splendour and comfort, whilst a fully equipped gym, vaulted games room with snooker table, and separate spa with sauna furnish plenty of entertainment opportunities. Lovely gardens surround the house featuring an attractive deck with a large fire pit, a BBQ area and an outdoor Jacuzzi.

One week rental from £740 per person based on 14 sharing, including a saving of 20% on all high and festive season bookings made by June 1st.

Temple Guiting Manor
Also in the heart of the Cotswolds, Temple Guiting Manor is a stunning example of late Tudor architecture in the familiar mellow stone of the area. Sleeping 10 in splendour and comfort, it lies in 14 acres of landscaped and formal gardens, is mentioned in the Doomsday Book and retains a host of original features including exposed beams, secret staircases and original mediaeval timbered doors overlaid throughout with all mod cons.

One week rental from £620 per person based on 10 sharing.

Temple Guiting Barn
On the same estate, Temple Guiting Barn is a superb conversion for up to 12 guests. Much of the design was inspired by renowned architect Ptolemy Dean whilst the gardens and grounds were landscaped by Chelsea Flower Show gold medal winner Jinny Blom. Decorated and furnished with finesse and flair, this is a great spot for relaxing, exploring and enjoying the delights of the Cotswolds.

One week rental from £515 per person based on 12 sharing.

Dewsall Manor
To the west in heavenly Herefordshire, Dewsall Manor is a lavish rural retreat surrounded by 12 acres of garden and rolling countryside stretching for miles in all directions. A peerless country living experience for families or groups of friends, it’s furnished with family antiques and fine art, boasts a spectacular Chinoiserie dining room, a billiards room and an orangery that can seat up to 40 – in all the perfect example of relaxed grandeur for up to 20 guests.

One week rental from £450 per person based on 20 sharing.

The Abercrombie & Kent Cotswold Collection has been created in response to ever-increasing demand. Not only is the area one of the most beautiful in the UK, but there is a huge variety of activities for all ages on the doorstep. Fascinating architecture, ancient monuments, the endless opportunities of the great outdoors, famous equestrian, art, jazz, literary and cricket festivals - the attractions of the Cotswolds and surroundings are endless.

As Claire Powell of Abercrombie & Kent Villas commented, ‘In response to a mounting crescendo of requests, we’re delighted to have put together a boutique collection of the best and most beautiful houses in the Cotswolds. They’re the perfect backdrop for enjoying the historic towns and villages, glorious countryside, buzzling calendar of events and all-round appeal for every generation that has proven an irresistible draw for our discerning clients.
