Dive in to Cotswolds life

Bring things back into focus and rediscover family life in the hushed and honeystoned world of the Cotswolds county set. Get steamy in the hammam; dive into the heated pool; or just relax and read. Get a drop-off dinner or dine out in style in England’s finest gastro-pub.

Family fun fills every moment

Make as much noise as you like in the state-of-the-art entertainment basement. You’ll be competing only with the quack of ducks and the beating wings of bats. Kingham is hush central in the honeystone world of the Cotswolds county set.

Remember your family? Among today’s helter-skelter schedules, Ryeworth Cottage is the place to bring things back into focus. Get hot and steamy in the hammam; chill in the heated pool with views over the oh-so-English lawns and landscapes. Dry off and catch a family film in the entertainment room.

Dine out or drop-off? We can deliver casseroles or come in and cook, with washing-up simply wafted away. Buffets, barbecues or fully-catered stays are no problem. For a real treat, pop down to the Michelin-recommended Kingham Plough for Duck Wellington followed by Yoghurt and Lemon Curd Parfait.

Relax with a book in the comfy sofas. Strike up a game of charades in the lounge. Potter out for a pint past honeyed cottages. Let the kids loose in Great Uncle Lemmy’s trunk of dressing-up clothes. Family fun fills every moment here.

Gardens and Pool

Feeling active? Ryeworth Cottage shares its pool and gardens with four other small cottages close by. Play croquet or tennis on the lawn and courts. Take a dip in a wonderful indoor pool with changing rooms and views overlooking the gorgeous gardens. Then relax and exfoliate in the stunning Turkish steam room.

The swimming pool complex is also home to a large entertainment room with a dining table, lounge chairs and a large TV complete with Sky Sports and Movies to ensure there’s never a dull moment. Exclusive use can be arranged on request.

Ryeworth Cottage has a private barbecue terrace for you to enjoy al fresco dining of an evening.

Cooking and Dining

Kingham is heaven for good food. The Kingham Plough, one of the best gastro-pubs in the country, and The Wild Rabbit with its coveted three rosettes award, are a short walk away. There are a couple of other pubs too, where you can grab a pint during your stay.

Of course, if you’d like to dine in that can be arranged too. Help yourselves to the well equipped kitchen. Or line up a top chef and set up the table in the entertainment room next to the pool. We offer everything from casseroles dropped off ready for the oven to waitress-served in-house catering.

For special occasions, we can arrange all kinds of catering – from a simple buffet, to a summer BBQ or a fully catered holiday.

There is a fully fitted oak kitchen with French doors to the BBQ terrace with table and chairs for al fresco dining. The dining table seats up to eight guests.
