Ben’s Burrow is a fitting name for this spacious two-storey luxury lodge, which is just like a rabbit warren inside!
Overlooking a large pond filled with ducks and koi carp, the newest of our accommodations is the epitome of luxury living and ideal for large families or those travelling with teenagers, carers, grandparents or nannies – who can stay in their own self-contained studio flat which sleeps two. This is in addition to sleeping space for seven in the main house.
A huge amount of outdoor space allows our guests to soak up their idyllic surroundings from a private hot tub – complete with outdoor power shower – or from the alfresco dining area, which boasts a charcoal pizza oven and six-burner gas barbecue. Or they can choose to settle back and relax in their very own geodesic dome. Partially suspended over a pond, it comes complete with daybed and telescope so you can stargaze at the night skies in unrivalled comfort.
For those visitors who yearn the authentic outdoors experience, guests at Ben’s Burrow can enjoy exclusive access to a fire pit surrounded by log-stump seats. This provides an ideal spot at which to warm up on those cold evenings or toast marshmallows with the kids.
Plus, there’s a small ‘beach’ area by the side of the pond (no swimming or fishing is allowed in the pond, sorry) – complete with palm tree and deckchairs – and plenty of hammocks in the trees for those who merely want to ‘hang out’ in the sunshine.
Ben’s Burrow is entered via a spacious open-plan kitchen and lounge, with all the mod cons of a stylish and modern fully fitted kitchen to hand, including dishwasher, microwave, SMEG kettle and toaster and oven-grill. The many thoughtful touches extend to a welcome basket awaiting guests on their arrival, including milk, fruit and delicious cake.
Central feature is a grand dining table large enough to seat all guests as well as plenty of sumptuous seating in which to kick back and enjoy the 55inch Smart TV and DVD player after a busy day out exploring the Cotswolds.
The downstairs double room has been equipped with parents of young children in mind, with plenty of space for a cot and even a Teasmade, for those disturbed nights, while the downstairs king-size room affords its own adjoining en suite featuring shower and toilet.
Another corridor reveals a stairway to access the triple bedroom, with its own bath, power shower and separate toilet.
A second stairway by the lounge area leads to the self-contained studio flat, with twin beds and a well-equipped kitchen, along with a private bathroom.
Ben’s Burrow is fully thermostat-controlled centrally heated, so keeping you cosy whatever the weather.
