Farmhouse at Thyme

Farmhouse at Thyme

Gloucestershire, Cotswolds, United Kingdom

A beautifully appointed 17th century Cotswold stone house, with its eight double en-suite bedrooms, light-filled and grand yet humble entertaining spaces, it makes a wonderful home away from home housing from 8 to 16 comfortably. Surrounded by a large walled garden, designed by six-times Chelsea Flower Show gold medallist Bunny Guinness, with a fire pit, a hammockry and a boules court, the house has been designed for supremely comfortable get-togethers and lazy country weekends. Filled with sumptuous velvets, antique furniture and lots of quirky details in a contemporary, refreshing take on English country design; each bedroom is unique and each has its own intrinsic charm, whether located under the eaves, or overlooking the endless fields surrounding the property. There is a richly decorated drawing room with open fires, perfect for pre-dinner drinks, as well as a snug for hiding away with a good book or movie. The spacious state-of-the-art kitchen, with its sliding windows on two sides, is casual and relaxed for delicious family meals, whilst the grand, double-height dining room is a glorious setting for formal dinners and smart celebrations.
