Purnell Manor is a strikingly attractive, large Georgian mansion offering a refined and elegant country home set within exquisitely handsome gardens in the South Cotswolds.
The majestic facade is simply breathtaking, finessed with the characteristic local stone, a pretty veranda offering dappled shade, beautiful bay windows and sumptuously sedate lawns: this is every inch the genteel and rustic English country home.
Acres of gardens range from manicured lawns framed with fragrant blossoming plants, dining pergola, dazzling pool and terrace, as well as ancient trees and mysterious woodlands.
The interiors at Purnell Manor offer generously proportioned, airy and light-infused spaces for a party of up to eighteen guests; ideal for extended family or a couple of families holidaying in tandem. Pristinely equipped, its facilities are peerless, with every little luxury provided and a level of care provided to ensure all guest’s needs are met.
The vibrant kitchen is fully set up for large scale catering, offers abundant natural daylight with views across the gardens and is finished in a chic palette of cream and aubergine. A sophisticated and lavish drawing room offers opulently draped silk curtains framing the bay windows, a grand piano and impressive library.
Purnell Manor blends old-school charm and period features with eclectic design touches and splashes of contemporary verve. With that quintessential English eccentricity, guests will enjoy vivacious group meals at the long and refined dining table, offset by vivid aqua toned walls, regal gilded frames and oil paintings. Whether it be an informal snack, or a post walk meal, this is a true country “pile,” with ample historical attraction as well as modern day, state of the art comforts, including the entertainment options, cinema room and range of downtime facilities.
Sumptuous bathrooms offer tasteful luxury with stunning free-standing bath for a boutique hotel feel. Each bedroom has its own accents of colour, printed fabrics or wallpaper, whether it be smart checks or pretty florals; pin stripes or accents of powder blue or regal reds, this home is full of quirky charm and individual style.
Purnell Manor accommodates up to eighteen guests across a range of double and twin bedrooms as well as two guest beds. Not every room has its own en-suite, yet there are plenty of bathrooms, and children in the group may wish to share.
Whether it be entertaining as a group, a warming family meal prepared on the Aga, or cocktails after a game of croquet beside the elegant fountain, this rambling home offers sumptuous Georgian architecture, stunning period fireplaces, cosy yet chic bedrooms – a true retreat from the bustle of modern-day living – within a tranquil and secluded spot in the heart of the Cotswolds.
