Ebrington Manor

Ebrington Manor, a stunning Cotswold manor house, has been owned by the same family since the 15th century. Nestled in the midst of fruit orchards in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it embodies the essence of rural England. Despite its ancient walls, the manor offers modern luxuries to ensure a delightful stay. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a hamper filled with local treats and cider from the farm shop.

With 8 bedrooms, the manor can accommodate up to 16 guests, allowing them to experience the splendour of County English living. The estate provides a range of activities for guests to enjoy, including barbecues on the boma firepit, invigorating swims or paddle boarding on the lake, tennis matches on the private court, 7-aside football games by the boathouse, table tennis in the Rose Garden summerhouse and alfresco dining in the Boathouse. Fishing enthusiasts can fish for rainbow trout and carp, with rods and tackle provided. There is even a trout smoker available.

Next to the lake, there is a boathouse made of Cotswold stone. It has a simple but fully functional kitchen, high-speed Wi-Fi, a toilet, and swimming towels. The boathouse area has a large fire pit inspired by South Africa, with cooking grills and plenty of seating. Guests can also use a separate gas BBQ, outdoor tables and chairs, and an herb garden. The property covers 20 acres of parkland and orchards, perfect for leisurely walks and exploring.

The Manor

Explore the elegant oak-panelled hall adorned with a balustraded gallery, where the warm glow of the late afternoon sun filters through the west-facing windows. Indulge in a movie in the cozy TV room or gather with friends and family in the drawing room, which offers multiple comfortable seating areas. The drawing room showcases the exquisite 17th-century wooden beams, creating a charming and inviting atmosphere to enjoy a film or snuggle up with a book by the crackling fire.

For a delightful dining experience, the dining room provides a lovely setting for a leisurely lunch or dinner. The table can be extended to accommodate anywhere from 8 to 18 guests, ensuring ample space for everyone to enjoy a memorable meal together.

This magnificent property features eight spacious and sunlit bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bathroom. Among these, four rooms boast luxurious super king beds, two offer twin beds, and two can be arranged as either twin beds or super king beds. In total, the house comfortably accommodates up to 16 guests.

The grounds surrounding the property are exceptionally private and untouched, offering stunning views of the Cotswolds in every direction. The village is conveniently located nearby, with a renowned pub, butcher, cafe, and farm shop all within walking distance. Additionally, the charming towns of Chipping Campden, Broadway, Stow on the Wold, Chipping Norton, Daylesford, and Soho Farmhouse are just a short drive away.

The Grounds

The house boasts a remarkably exquisite, traditional Cotswold garden, which is occasionally accessible to the public and the Garden Club of America. Positioned in front of the house, the gardens face directly west, allowing for the last rays of the sun and uninterrupted panoramic views all the way to Broadway Tower, located 5 miles away.

On the southern side, the tortoise garden, accompanied by its 70-year-old resident, Heather, provides a tranquil haven for enjoying an evening beverage while revelling in the equally breath-taking vistas. Situated to the east of the house, the tennis court is adorned with netting adorned with roses and offers splendid views of the nearby church.

A true gem of the property is the rose garden, an enchanting walled sanctuary adorned with a plethora of rose varieties in various shapes, sizes, and colours. Overlooking this picturesque scene is a delightful summerhouse with open sides, equipped with power, lighting, and broadband. This idyllic spot serves multiple purposes, whether it be unwinding with a good book, finding a peaceful workspace, practicing yoga, or indulging in al fresco dining.

Additionally, the summerhouse is home to a popular ping pong table. For those seeking more active pursuits, there are 20 acres of parkland waiting to be explored. Children can enjoy swings nestled beneath the shade of walnut trees, while open grassy areas provide ample space for football matches and picnics. The park is bordered by apple trees, as the estate continues to operate as a functioning fruit farm, cultivating some of the oldest English apple varieties. In close proximity to the house, a spring-fed swimming lake offers a refreshing oasis, complete with a marvellous al fresco dining setup (which we can help arrange).

Wild Swimming

There is a spring-fed freshwater swimming lake, where the braver guests can enjoy swimming all year round.

For both kids and adults, there are paddle boards, a rowing boat, and various other water toys available.

This fire pit is perfect for cooking over an open flame or simply enjoying the ambiance at any time of the day. Additionally, there is a gas BBQ available, and the boathouse itself is equipped with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, sink, cutlery, crockery, glassware, and a toilet, ensuring that al fresco dining is made easy and convenient. To provide shade, we have two beautiful oak tables that can seat 16 or more guests, along with director’s chairs and large parasols.
