Just beyond the main house, with stables on two sides, the honey-stone coach house is bang in the heart of the Cotswolds. A small brook babbles at the bottom of the garden and you’re a five-minute hop from handsome Broadway. Enter the original door to discover a delightful, comfortable, open-plan living space, with a Farrow & Ball’d kitchen to the right and carpeted stairs to the big vaulted bedroom. All is elegant, understated and charming, with a wood-burner in the hearth and beautiful beams above, polo portraits on the walls and a copy of Vogue on the table (a nod to Sue and Andy’s former career). Sue leaves you a generous welcome pack, a basket of logs and fresh flowers, and a folder of leaflets ready to go. And go you must: the area’s sheep-shaped past is seen in every lovely wool church and manor house. Gracious, golden Chipping Campden has some brilliant craft shops; exquisite Stow has its own cricket museum. Winter is for bracing walks, spring is for lambs and wild daffs. Then it’s back for a soak in a luscious deep bath, a good book (there are several), and a game of dominoes before bed.
