Bruern Cottages at a Glance
A paradise for children, with three playgrounds, a play cabin, a wendy house, toy cars and bicycles for every child and in every size – and above all other children. For teens (and maybe older-than-teens), there’s a games room with pool, table tennis and table football.
Unashamedly English Country House style – the atmosphere is elegant yet comfortable, and all the properties have log fires, and canopied or four poster beds.
The gardens are stunning! When you step outside into the gardens, you find a blend of formal and informal elements, featuring topiary, cutting gardens with box hedges, gazebos, little orchards, statuary, a wisteria tunnel, and a vast hundred yard herbaceous border.
Finally, there is the indoor swimming pool, gym and spa, which looks out on to a separate Italianate garden and terrace, with a classical portico to sit beneath in the shade. Cited by Tatler in 2009 as one of the “101 best spas in the world”, here you can book reflexology, massages, pedicures, manicures and facials.
All in all, Bruern is a place that is simply unique – over eighty percent of our business comes from returning guests, and of new guests the majority come from personal word-of-mouth recommendations. Our average review score over the last three years on TripAdvisor is more than 4.9 out of 5 – if you read the reviews, you’ll see why we are simply the best luxury cottages in the Cotswolds.
Bruern is a tiny Cotswolds hamlet hidden in the Evenlode Valley, which has been officially designated as an ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. You would have to go far and look hard to find a single blot on this landscape – a countryside of rolling fields and woods, threaded through by meandering streams, an area of handsome towns, churches and manor houses.
