The property

Maugersbury Manor is an enchanting Grade II listed property which sleeps 12 people in six bedrooms, with five spacious bathrooms.

This fabulous property dates back to the early 17th century and has been recently renovated to create a stylish, contemporary home with a variety of wonderful character features including exposed beams, exposed Cotswold stone walls, two fireplaces with wood burning stoves, ornamental fireplaces, stone mullion windows and original wood flooring. These period touches are complemented by modern facilities and elegant design features including wireless internet access, a Smart TV, underfloor heating in some rooms, marble flooring and a stunning dining area which sits beneath a beautiful glass roof lantern.

This breathtaking country house has a superb garden with rural views and plenty of off-street parking on its private driveway. Maugersbury Manor is tucked away in the peaceful rural village of Maugersbury, an idyllic hamlet located almost 200ft above the valley bottom below, offering glorious country views and scenic walks on its doorstep.

Just half a mile from Maugersbury is the popular market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, once a small settlement within the lands of the Manor and now home to a number of independent shops, tearooms, pubs and restaurants.

This much loved town has preserved many of its notable historic features including the bustling market square with its medieval stone cross and old town stocks, and the ‘tures’, narrow alleyways which were once used to channel the many sheep to market. Maugersbury is well-placed for exploring the many picturesque towns and villages of the North Cotswolds such as Moreton-in-Marsh, Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water and Broadway, all benefitting from well-regarded pubs and restaurants.

Further afield destinations such as Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick Castle, Oxford and Blenheim Palace are also within easy reach for day trips.Maugersbury Manor sits within extensive grounds comprising a beautifully maintained lawn and an immaculate patio area with an outdoor table with seating for six.

Attractive flower beds dotted between the paving stones add colour, and adjacent to the seating area is a shallow unfenced pond (young children should be supervised at all times).

A paved path passes behind the conservatory to a charming herb garden which guests are welcome to use to enhance home cooked meals.

The enclosed garden offers marvellous rural views and is bathed in sunlight during the warmer months.

Mature trees at the rear create welcome shade when needed and a garden bench, charcoal fire pit and small charcoal barbecue are provided, allowing guests to make the most of the fair weather. Ample parking is available on the gravel driveway at the front of the property.

About the location

STOW-ON-THE-WOLD

Bourton-on-the-Water 4 miles; Stratford upon Avon 15 miles.

The highest town in the Cotswolds, Stow-on-the-Wold, originally an Iron Age Fort, epitomises olde worlde England. This ancient market town has played host to many fairs since the 12th century and today holds a biannual Gypsy Horse Fair, craft fairs and monthly Farmers' market. The vast market square boasts an ancient cross at one end and the village stocks at the other, surrounded by an elegant array of Cotswold stone townhouses, antique shops, tea rooms, traditional pubs, award-winning restaurants and its very own cricket museum. Many walks and cycle rides through the beautiful rolling countryside of the Cotswolds can be enjoyed from the centre of Stow, with the Macmillan Way, Heart of England Way, Gloucestershire and Monarch's Way all running close to the town. Bourton-on-the-Water, known as the 'Venice of the Cotswolds' as the River Windrush runs through the centre, lies in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is one of the most popular Cotswold villages. The Saxon market town of Moreton-in-Marsh and the quintessential English village of Broadway are all within easy reach and make a great day out. Cheltenham (20 miles away) is, architecturally, the most complete regency town in England. A spa town with an incredible range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs, it is famous for its horse-racing festival in March, culminating in the Gold Cup steeplechase. At other times of year, it is host to literature, jazz, classical music, science and food and drink festivals. Oxford, the oldest university city in England and sometimes called 'The City of Dreaming Spires’ has an abundance of prestigious attractions, including the 38 colleges of the university (half of which date back before 1600), the oldest university teaching room, the Bodleian Library, Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers Museums, and Botanic Gardens. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Worcester and the waterfront city of Gloucester are also within easy reach, making Stow-on-the-Wold an ideal base.
