We've just returned from a very pleasant stay at Bruern. Our cottage, the grounds, the pool, were all excellent.
The cottage was really well equipped and we had everything we needed. There was no need to bring tea towels, bin bags etc as it was all there, including bread, milk, tea, coffee and cupcakes!
It was certainly a quiet and relaxing break. The weather was pretty awful, but the cottage was very cosy and we enjoyed the real log fire - slightly strange being August, but there we go!
We went for a Monday to Thursday break, which was significantly cheaper than the weekend prices. We personally wouldn't choose to pay the higher rates, but, nevertheless, a great holiday. Thank you, Bruern.
In April, we spent a week at the Bruern Cottages in the Cotswolds. Our cottage was amazing: large bedroom and bath: large living room with fireplace (stocked with kindling and wood); a great kitchen (stocked with wine, eggs, butter, cheese, crackers, cookies, etc.) and convenient parking just outside the front door.
The grounds were well landscaped and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The property had a pool and fitness center, too.
There are about 10 cottages in the complex which is in a "farm like" setting but very convenient to everywhere we wanted to go. Great sights and restrauants in every direction.
If you want a home away from home in the Cotswolds, this is the perfect place.
