Luxury In The Cotswolds is run by sisters Laura & Tillie, established in 2015 Laura explains a little on how & why they started this family venture...

 The definition of a luxury break is different for each person. For some it may be total isolation from the outside world, for others it may be a property filled with family & friends... In putting together Luxury In The Cotswolds, Tillie & I wanted to be able to provide a combination of both.

With years of family breaks in self-catering accommodation: New Year on the Coast, squirreling away in a castle in the Scottish Highlands & even a few discreet trips closer to home we both had a strong idea on not only the level of accommodation we wanted to provide, but those little added extras we ourselves sought out.

Yes it’s lovely to spend a week away with your nearest & dearest, but whether it’s just your significant other or several generations of family, luxury surroundings do not always make a luxurious break!

Our answer to this was to ensure the following two mantras:

“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury” ‘Coco Chanel’

All of our luxury self-catering properties are dressed for luxury, but everything has been tried & tested by us. We’ve laid on the hand-made mattresses (resulting in Tillie buying one for herself), we’ve sat & designed our website in the leather chesterfields (complete with my daughter Isla ensuring her dinosaurs also enjoy the comfort), coffee & cake crumbs have covered the dining tables during meetings & our (mostly well-behaved) Labradors Marshall & Willow have curled up on the rugs. The most important aspect for us was to ensure everything looked great & feels great but that nothing screams ‘untouchable’. So please ensure you spend your stay with us sprawled out on the sofa, a glass of something sparkly in hand & your furry best friend under your feet.

“Luxury is in each detail” ‘Hubert de Givenchy’

We wanted our properties to cater for everyone. Bose speakers, comfy seating & more Sophie Conran sharing platters & bowls than you can use, fill the open-plan living areas to ensure everyone can eat, drink & enjoy together. White Company sheets, beautifully soft towels & award-winning boutique toiletries in our spacious & private bedrooms allow a little 'you' time. All the products within the properties we use ourselves, after all everyone deserves a little everyday luxury...

Our luxury self-catering accommodation isn’t just limited to the decor & details. We have put together a program of little extras to help make your stay truly luxurious, with Welcome Hampers consisting of a lovely (but naughty) homemade cake & English Breakfast tea & coffee to help kick back after your journey; In house catering options, whether it be a one-pot wonder to pop in the oven yourself or a fully catered meal from our lovely (& eccentric) chef Lucy; Veg boxes lovingly grown at our home (by our father); or a locally sourced hamper for your wanderings across the never-ending local countryside, to name a few. We want to ensure everything you could want is at your disposal.

Our mission is to provide truly bespoke self-catering holidays sprinkled with luxury in the most exclusive locations. We hope our extensive try-it-first (& thus very pain free) research on everything we offer ensures everything is perfect for you.

We look forward to seeing you very soon.
