Cornwell Manor, a 2,000-acre estate close to Chipping Norton, lies at the heart of one of the most beautiful areas of the Cotswolds. Surrounded by extensive woodlands, lakes and farmland, the Manor is an imposing and historic house whose grounds, designed by Clough William-Ellis, include a formal fountain, outdoor swimming pool and small chapel dating back to Norman times.
The privately-owned hamlet of Cornwell, origins of which can be traced back to the 11th Century Domesday book, lies only a 5-minute drive from Daylesford Organic Farm. Neighbouring working stables top off the country feel, with fishing and even shooting possible on the grounds.
The original manor house is Jacobean, with an elegant Georgian façade added in the 17th century and new wings and buildings constructed over time. Many historic features have been retained inside; the dining room, with original panelling is the oldest room in the house, whilst the classic English stone floored entrance hall and living rooms have 18th century fireplaces. The drawing room features Rococo plasterwork and classic art pieces adorn the walls throughout the property.
Elegant and atmospheric, Cornwell Manor provides guests with a glimpse of English country life in the past, offering a timeless place for family retreats and a chance to imagine life as lord and lady in this once aristocratic home. Formal living areas are typified by family busts and portraits, with many bedrooms benefitting from views across the formal lakes and surrounding Cotswold countryside.
