About The Manor Lodge

The Manor Lodge is an impressive property with space for up to 26 guests to sleep in eight bedrooms. It is one of a collection of superb self-catering holiday properties on the Cotswold Manor Estate where guests can enjoy access to fantastic facilities that include 70 acres of beautiful parkland. Manor Lodge is close to the popular Lord Kitchener gastropub and restaurant, so a delicious meal or a pint in the sunny beer garden is within walking distance if you feel the urge.

The Cotswold Manor Estate is breathtaking in both scale and beauty. The 70 private acres contains nine other self-catering properties of various sizes, each furnished to a very high standard so that guests have everything for a memorable holiday at their fingertips. Houses on the scale of Manor Lodge can feel impersonal, but the owners of the Cotswold Manor Estate have created a warm, welcoming atmosphere where you can host a house party for all of your favourite people. The venue is ideal for relaxed weekends away with friends and special celebrations and can be booked with one or more of the other properties on the estate to accommodate larger groups.

The size of the estate means you do not even have to leave the grounds to have a fantastic stay. Laze in Manor Lodge's private garden, enjoying the peace as you soak in the hot tub or enjoy a barbecue in the sun, or work off a big meal with a walk around the parkland which features ponds, streams, a bluebell wood and an orchard. The size of the grounds means that you can arrange for activities like outdoor personal training sessions, zorbing, archery, laser clay shooting or a mini-Olympics, and the owner can help to put you in touch with local providers if you need assistance to organise this. If the weather is not playing ball, so to speak, then the indoor games barn is perfect, offering table tennis, air hockey and much more.

There is more to keep your guests happily occupied outside of the estate's walls. The beauty and charm of The Cotswolds are incredibly seductive, with visitors lured by the promise of beautiful countryside walks, picturesque towns and villages and a relaxed country atmosphere that is all within easy reach of London, the Midlands and the South East. The Cotswold Manor Estate is close to the pretty village of Bampton, possibly familiar to fans of Downton Abbey. As well as a small but well-stocked supermarket, the village has an excellent local butcher, antique centre and a lovely church.

Nearby attractions include Kelmscott Manor, Cogges Manor Farm, Blenheim Palace and The Cotswold Wildlife Park. Historic Oxford, with its magnificent university buildings and excellent shopping, is 20 miles away, and if you appreciate designer items at bargain prices, then spend a day at Bicester Village. The Cotswolds is unbelievably picturesque and dotted with postcard-perfect towns and villages such as Stow-on-the-Wold, Bourton-on-the-Water and the Slaughters.

Whether you are booking The Manor Lodge for a family celebration, a hen or stag weekend, or even a corporate team-building session, the high standard of accommodation and excellent facilities make it easy to arrange the perfect holiday in the Cotswolds.

Location (The Cotswolds)

Accommodation Comprises:

The Manor Lodge is spacious and elegant, with accommodation spread over two levels. The layout of some of the bedrooms is flexible, with zip link beds that can be separated to be two single beds, or joined together to form a super-kingsized (6ft) bed. Please speak to the owners about your requirements when booking.

The property is dog-friendly with well-behaved pets welcome for a small surcharge. The comfort of four-legged guests is not overlooked, and they receive a welcome box of doggie treats and essentials.


  • Over half of the ground floor is dedicated to relaxing and entertaining, with a large sitting room flowing into a beautiful, south-facing orangery that enjoys lovely views across the Estate's gardens and has a long dining table with seating for 26 people.
  • The sitting room has leather couches, comfortable tub chairs and a Cotswold stone fireplace. The 45-inch TV with a DVD player is ideal for film nights, while the super-fast "Air Fibre" broadband will keep even the most committed tech-lover happy.
  • Kitchen which is a happy hub, with its warm oak flooring, granite countertops, and breakfast island. Guests will naturally congregate here, happily helping to prepare meals or just to enjoy a cup of coffee or glass of wine. A sizeable American-style fridge freezer and ample cupboard space means you can stock up on groceries for the duration of your stay.
  • Three of Manor Lodge's eight bedrooms are on the ground floor. There is a cosy triple room that leads off the main entrance hall. It is furnished with three single beds and is adjacent to the downstairs cloakroom where there is a WC and a handbasin.
  • Second triple room with an ensuite shower room with WC and handbasin, and doors that open on to the gardens at the front of the house.
  • Third downstairs bedroom which is a twin room with an ensuite shower room with a WC and a handbasin.


Stairs lead from the main entrance hall to the upper floor and landing, off which are five further bedrooms and a family bathroom.

  • Master bedroom which is a quad with four single beds and a built-in wardrobe. The room has an ensuite with both a bath and a walk-in shower, as well as a WC and vanity.
  • There is a second four-person room, this one with two single beds and bunk beds.
  • Two triple rooms each have an ensuite - one with a bath and the other with a shower.
  • The remaining bedroom is a quiet twin room.
  • A spacious bathroom has a deep bath, separate shower, WC and hand basin.

Outside: The Manor Lodge has a private fenced garden. It is flat and mainly lawn with lovely mature trees for shade on a hot day. A paved terrace has picnic benches and seats for relaxed outdoor meals, and there is an outdoor hot tub exclusively for the use of guests of Manor Lodge. There is off-street parking for several cars next to the house. Guests at Manor Lodge enjoy shared use of the Estate's extensive grounds and facilities, including the indoor games barn. There is a separate Events Barn available for hire if you need to organise a meeting or presentation, party or sit-down meal for up to 65 guests.

Additional Information: All utilities, including WiFi, linen and bath towels are included, with guests just needing to bring a towel for the hot tub if they plan on taking a dip. Smoking is not permitted inside any of the properties on The Cotswold Manor Estate but is allowed outside in the gardens and grounds. The owner has good contacts with local caterers and businesses and is happy to assist if you need any help when planning your Cotswold break.
