This house is made for summer days playing tennis or lazing beside the pool, opening the doors from the pool house to create a spectacular space for family gatherings. Each bedroom is charmingly French in style with plump bedding for you to drift away in this dreamscape at the end of the day. The delights of Broadway are on your doorstep with its wide tree lined high street and boutiques, and Winchcombe and beautiful Sudeley Castle are a quintessentially Cotswold day out.

Utility: From the courtyard you have access to the utility where you will find all the laundry equipment you will need during your stay. Being separate from the house keeps the noise from disturbing you as you dine or spend time in the sitting rooms in the manor.
Pool House: Making this manor unique, the pool house is a slice of decadent living. With space for your entire group to gather between here and the pool terrace you will spend most of your time here during the summer. Opening the French doors, you can drift between the outdoor and indoor spaces, having a dip in the pool before dining inside if the weather turns.
Gardens and Grounds: The extensive grounds at Foxholme Manor have delightful gardens to explore. The orchards of apple, plum and walnut trees are often visited by deer, rabbits, and foxes, and beyond you have access to a wildflower meadow. Vegetables and a vineyard have been planted and there is manicured hedging and woodlands where a footpath is kept clear for walking with the family. There are so many places to discover at this dog friendly manor house, and it is a real treat to get to find the hidden corners for yourself. Across the central enclosed courtyard is the utility and decadent pool house which opens to the heated swimming pool. It is a fully enclosed area and there are loungers and space to dine.

Foxholme Manor, a grade II listed house dating back 400 years started its humble beginnings as a farmhouse. Over time additions have been made to the building making it the splendid manor house it is today. The owners have lovingly improved the extensive gardens and grounds with sustainability in mind and welcome you to enjoy it.
Whether it's sampling fresh fruit from the orchard, playing croquet on the lawns or hosting a teddy bear's picnic the gardens are brought to life. Guests of any age will love the adventure of running down the drive to see the passing vintage steam train, give the driver a wave and you'll get a friendly 'toot toot' back.
Days out can be spent exploring Broadway with its must visit boutique shops, elegant dining rooms and quaint cafes. The owner's enjoy evening meals in the historic surroundings of the Lygon Arms and recommend visiting in summer to enjoy the beautiful courtyard. The Old Butcher's in Stow-on-the-Wold is run by a husband and wife team and serves excellent food with exceptional service. They specialise in seafood and meat dishes and it is one of the most popular restaurants in the Cotswolds.

While staying at Foxholme Manor you feel like you are miles away from anybody else. It is however only a mile from the village of Stanton where you can enjoy a meal at The Mount Inn which overlooks the area. The Gloucestershire Warwickshire steam train passes nearby, and you can hop on at Broadway for a leisurely way to see the nearby villages. Broadway and its wide high street, independent shops and fantastic pubs and restaurants is less than a 10-minute drive. You are also within half an hour of Cheltenham making this a fantastic location for attending Cheltenham Festival race week. Broadway Tower, Cotswold Farm Park, Sudeley Castle, the Lavender Fields and Snowshill are also essential days out.
