A Hauntingly Good British Break

Even before the unseasonably good sunny spell, the UK is increasingly seen as a good holiday option. Beautiful countryside, years of history and quaint villages and coastal towns add to the appeal of a stay-cation but also attract 30 million plus tourists each year, but where to stay?...

Painswick Court, Luxury Cotswold Home, A&K Villas

New to the luxury villa rental market and a completely unique property is Painswick Court in the Cotswolds. This stunning 16th century abode has been recently renovated and can count royalty amongst its esteemed guests. It’s the perfect place to celebrate a special family occasion or to enjoy stepping back in time but with plenty of luxuries afforded.

Painswick Court comfortably sleeps up to 20 guests in unique and comfortable en-suite rooms. None however are as grand or as steeped in history as the ‘King Charles Suite’, which is where King Charles I stayed in 1643 during the siege of Gloucester. Whilst there are many new features that make this property a fantastic venue for a luxury break in the UK, these combine cleverly with the old which include a gunshot scar in the front door and a 16th century court room complete with original stone fireplace and wood panelling - indeed sitting on the comfortable sofas it’s difficult to imagine that this room was used to pass sentence to the criminals of yesteryear. Impressive grounds, spa facilities, a games room and barbecue area combine to make this a must visit property.

Painswick Court, The Court Room, Luxury Cotswold Home, A&K Villas

Its location in Painswick is perfect for exploring the Cotswolds with traditional English pubs, delicatessens and shops on the doorstep, not to mention the beautiful Rococo Gardens. Day trips to London and the coast are also within reach.

Would be guests should be prepared for company however as local ghostly sightings of King Charles I and his loyal men dressed in armour are rife in the community!
