Tudor hide-away

Temple Guiting Mannor

Having been a privately owned house since the 15th Century,
this Grade 1 listed Tudor house has been skillfully restored and
turned into a luxurious private rental in a charming Cotswold setting.

Though there is that certain spooky eeriness about this house, it is
exactly the kind of place I would like to spend a weekend at with
a bunch of really good friends. We'd go at the peak of autumn -
enjoy long walks in the stunning countryside, eat hearty food,
drink mulled wine by the open fire at night.
If only the Cotswolds wasn't so far away...

What a place! The architecture is fantastic and still works some few hundred years later. What a setting! Look at the beams and the fireplaces and the many chandeliers. As a guest I would never leave! Lovely post as always, Charlotta!

Yes - it is so amazing! I love how lovingly the house has been renovated and converted - e.g. the carpeted rooms have maintained the original wooden thresholds, the inset of new glass in the original lead windows etc.
Be such a wonderful place to rent, wouldn't it!
