Luxury country house for family and friends

A luxuriously furnished home in the prettiest valley in the Cotswolds set in two acres with lake and river frontage.

Swan House is a beautifully furnished Grade II listed country house originally dating from the mid 17th century in a charming 'secret' village. It's set in gardens of two acres which run down to the river, with its own spring fed trout lake. It is spring fed, so wonderfully cool and clear.

The house has six bedrooms (three king, one double and two twins), five bathrooms, large hall/sitting room, laundry/boot room, state of the art Miele kitchen, spacious dining room and 36' drawing room with grand piano. All the main downstairs rooms have have log burning fires and glorious views over the gardens and lake. The master bedroom has a four poster bed.

The house dates from about 1650, and the oldest part was originally the village school room. Where the kitchen is, was a beer store, and the dining room was once the village Reading Room (next to the beer store, so legend has it was really the local informal pub!)

The setting is a walkers’ paradise with countless local walks. Take your croissant through the breakfast room and on to the terrace, or if it's a bit cold, just keep the doors open and look down over the gardens and lake. There is a large terrace for informal summer dining, and a gas fired barbecue. The gardens are idyllic, with a formal long herbaceous border, wild garden, orchard and lake. Patricia is a keen gardener and with the help of our groundsman and gardener the gardens have been developed to be welcoming and tranquil.

Bibury is about two miles away. Cotswold Water Park, which has jet skiing, canoeing, sailing, fishing and its own beach, is nearby. Cotswold Wildlife Park, Birdland, Batsford Arboretum and Birds of Prey Centre, Hidcote, and Westonbirt Arboretum are all within easy driving distance. Bath and Stratford on Avon are close enough for day trips.

The village is set in the 'Golden Triangle' between Cirencester, Burford and Stow on the Wold, all quintessential Cotswold towns. Cirencester (Roman Corinium) has a wealth of places to eat, a regular Farmers’ Market and plenty of shops.

Reviews for Swan House

Meet the owner

Mike and Patricia Langley

Mike and Patricia bought Swan House in 1999. Over twenty years they have transformed it into a stylish country house. Their view is that it has to be exactly the same standard as if friends were coming to stay. They began letting it when their kids were teenagers and they weren't getting down there much. Unable to bring themselves to sell it, they decided to let others come and enjoy it. One of most frequent comments in their Guest Book is: 'Thank you for sharing it with us.' That's very humbling.
