To get to Cheltenham Cottage, you go in through its private entrance, to the right of the central arches of the stables, and up a spiral staircase to an enormous warm and welcoming open-plan drawing-room/dining-room/kitchen.
This is flooded by the light from six windows which look out to staggering views: on one side, across the walled garden, fields and woods to Stow-on-the-Wold in the distance; and on the other, over the stable courtyard and the parkland of Bruern Abbey.
The walls are a sunny Chinese yellow, set off by long cream cotton damask curtains and the cream sofa. The quantities of black-and-white prints and black-framed engravings, together with the black-and-white engraved border at cornice level, make it look like an 18th century print room. Over the mantelpiece there’s a black-and-gold framed mirror, and by the window a desk.
An off white sofa and two low chairs flank the open fire, and there’s a blue and beige velvet spotted hassock on the needle point rug, just right for a tray or magazines. Behind the sofa is the circular dining-table. Two windows frame a big dresser, whose subtle off-whites and greys set off shelves of decorative pink-and-white china, plates, tea pots, coffee pots and serving dishes.
The fresh and pretty kitchen is screened from the drawing-room by the stairs leading to the upstairs landing. It has white painted units and blue-and-white Delft wall tiles. There’s every machine and gadget you might need, as well as a waste disposal unit and pine dish rack.
The master bedroom, at the top of the stairs on the left, is a tranquil mixture of blue, pink and cream. The walls are palest pink, the woodwork dragged pearly grey; the four-poster is painted in a blue-and-white faux bamboo effect, and hung in a pink-and-blue on cream Bennison print of tiny garlands of roses, matching the curtains and the cushion on the window seat.
There’s a wardrobe and shelves with sliding doors, and a small marble-topped washstand set in a mirrored lighted alcove by the door. Across the landing is the twin-bedded room, with buff walls, pale green dragged paintwork, and a curtained alcove lined in rose-and-cream toile de jouy, in which is set one of the beds.
In between the bedrooms is the shared bathroom. It has a wall to wall caramel marble washstand, and caramel tiles on floor and walls; big mirrors run the length of the bathroom over both the bath and the washstand.
There is a powerful shower over the bath. Guests staying in Cheltenham have their own private summerhouse and terrace at the end of the garden, with a table, chairs and a big umbrella, plus a barbecue for al fresco meals. In front, there’s the wonderful sweep of the lawn and the 150 foot long border, back by a wisteria and apple tunnel.
