Bruern: Classic Cotswold Cottages


We are delighted, and honoured, to represent Bruern Cottages, the original luxury Cotswold cottage collection; inspired by the traditional English Country House style.

The twelve cottage collection at Bruern in the heart of classic Cotswold country.

We are delighted, and honoured, to represent Bruern Cottages, the original luxury Cotswold cottage collection; inspired by the traditional English Country House style.

In the heart of the Oxfordshire Cotswolds, between Chipping Norton, Stow-on-the-Wold and Burford, Bruern are not just the only luxury cottages in the Cotswolds to welcome guests just as a hotel does from just a single night, both during the week and at the weekend, but are in fact one of the few luxury holiday rentals in the whole of the UK to offer this. Bruern Cottages offer the comfort and attention to detail of a good hotel, combined with the privacy, independence and space of home, amidst the civilised ease and style of traditionally inspired English Country House living. However, there are four things that really set Bruern apart:

Classic Country House Style
Award Wining Gardens
Tatler Rated Spa & Indoor Pool
A Children’s Paradise
The Famous Bruern Welcome Basket

Twice National Winners of VisitBritain’s England for Excellence Award for Luxury Self-Catering, and current holders of EnjoyEngland’s Gold Award for quality, these holiday cottages set a new benchmark for self-catering in the UK.

All in all, Bruern is a place that is simply unique with over 80% of bookings coming from returning guests, and with new guests the majority come from word-of-mouth recommendation; and Bruern has an average review score of more than 4.9 out of 5.

Hidden Gem: "We loved our stay at Bruern and found it very hard to leave. The cottages have stunning interiors and come equipped with everything from luxury toiletries, board games, kitchen utensils to satisfy the best of chefs and more books than you could read in a lifetime. The gardens, setting, pool and huge variety of things to do in the area kept us very busy. In our minds the combination of space and the little touches such as the welcome basket and toy boxes sets Bruern way ahead of the top hotels in this stunning area, especially if you have young children. It is tempting not to write a review to keep this gem a hidden secret…" May 2017

Perfect Vacation Rental: "We just finished a vacation rental at Weir House at Bruern Cottages. We stayed with one other family – so a total of 4 adults and 5 young kids (aged 2-7). The setup worked perfectly, with two separate accommodation areas (one wing with 3 beds and then the upstairs with 2 beds). The living space is open plan – a huge kitchen diner, separate TV room (with a TV that must be 70 inches plus) and then a super comfy living area with large open fire. The house is so well set up for kids, with great little touches – high chairs, kids plates, stools for kids to reach basins, toys, dress up, a little play area under the stairs etc. There is also a big garden, play room and pool / gym area to keep everyone amused. Location is great also – within striking distance of some great sights and some great gastro pubs. It’s more expensive than the average vacation rental – but worth it considering what you get (including the champagne and top quality bacon and sausages they leave for breakfast!)." December 2016

The Telegraph: Best for cottages with benefits
"Like staying in your smartest friend’s country bolthole, Bruern is perfect for a family getaway with benefits – champagne on arrival, swimming pool and spa." November 2016

"A good balance between old cottage and modern, while adult and child friendly." July 2016

"The dining room/lounge complete with open fire is simply wonderful and very relaxing." May 2016

"The living room walls are stencilled by Jocasta Innes and the whole cottage is furnished in a really cosy and homely way, with antique furniture and bookshelves lined with great reads for kids and adults." August 2014

"It had charm and was homely and authentic, it was in my view exactly what you want from a Cotswold cottage." February 2012
