A sumptuous and spacious wood-crafted holiday home with a geodome & hot tub, nestled on a working farm in the scenic Cotswolds.
  • Sleeps: 6
  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • Minimum stay: 2 nights

Discover the unique, architect-designed Bob’s Lodge on the friendly and working Winchcombe Farm, beautifully positioned in a Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Complete with a private garden, an elevated outside deck and a six-person hot tub that overlooks a field of grazing sheep and lambs, you’ll soon be rethinking your idea of family breaks spent in the Great Outdoors!

With two generous storeys crafted from wood, Bob’s Lodge is wonderfully spacious, with plenty of room for everyone to lounge, dine, read and chat (with hammocks and ergonomic sun loungers to help the relaxing along).

There’s an outdoor play house for the kids, and you’ll find stargazing is covered too, with a separate geodesic dome that features a round superking bed and a telescope! The dome is housed on its very own platform built around a willow tree, with a four-meter slide that leads down into the garden.

Meanwhile, there’s a luxurious ground-floor kingsize bedroom, with a cosy double and a twin upstairs. Claim your favourite, and then explore the rest of this truly spectacular lodge.

The ground floor is equipped with a welcoming open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, with underfloor heating, squishy sofas and entertainment in the form of a Smart TV, DVD player and WiFi speaker. Though you may prefer grabbing the binoculars and taking a closer peek at the array of local wildlife. You’ll find a generous welcome basket provided, including delicious cake, fruit and milk. Indulge to your heart’s content, as you argue over who’s going to get the pleasure of cooking in the curved, high-end kitchen! The window looks over a paddock of grazing ponies, and out towards the battlefield landmark of Edgehill.

The kids will be in their element when you head upstairs, as they discover their very own breakout area complete with a fully-stocked toy box, a cosy child’s sofa and armchair, and their own TV and DVD player!
