Rodborough Poolhouse

Cotswolds, England
An Intimate Hideaway in the Cotswolds

When we think of the Cotswolds, the swinging Sixties aren't the first thing that come to mind. But here in the picturesque countryside, this mid-century vacation home for rent brings the era back. We love the colorful period finishes and furnishings and the inviting sense of fun.

Rodborough Poolhouse, Cotswolds, England | vacation homes for rent

Nestled into the Cotswold escarpment in Rodborough just outside of Stroud, this vacation home for rent in England is the rare mid-century gem among the medieval villages. With impressive views of nearby Stroud and the Golden Valleys, this unique holiday retreat is adjacent to National Trust lands that consists of nearly 300 acres of lush grass and woodlands.

Built in the late Sixties in glass, timber and the distinctive local Cotswold stone (reputed to have originated from Prinknash Abbey), the low slung horizontal silhouette is evocative of the post-war California ranch style homes that sprang up throughout the US. Oriented to the southwest, the placement insures maximum sunlight throughout the day along with privacy. 

Recently renovated inside and out, the interiors has been sympathetically restored to reflect the period it was built, with fun and colorful mid-century finishes, furnishings and decor. The open plan living space includes the gleaming red lacquer kitchen with a breakfast bar and dining area and a fireside lounge space overlooking the pool. With one double bedroom and shower room, the house sleeps just two for an intimate hideaway. 

The private garden and swimming pool are surrounded by cedar decking with plenty of areas to lounge and dine while you admire the views. 

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, TV with DVD player. Housekeeping and laundry facilities. Linens and kitchen essentials. Private parking.

 

AROUND

The picture perfect Cotswolds are just about everyone's idealized version of medieval England. Spanning six counties, the region was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is an idyllic and well preserved swath of lush grassland and rolling hills dotted with thatch-roofed medieval villages, stately mansions and churches built from the distinctive local limestone.

The bustling market town of Stroud is just over a mile away where you'll find interesting shops, pubs and cafés. Once the industrial center of the Cotswold’s and the wool industry, it is still very much a working town but with frequent arts and music festivals as well as a weekly award winning farmers market. Nearby Tetbury is known for its antique shops, and the spa town of Cheltenham, famous for its racecourse and many cultural festivals is a short drive.

Gloucester and the ancient market town of Cirencester are within a short drive and there are a wealth of gorgeous houses and gardens open to the public. And, stretching from Chipping Campden to Bath, the famous Cotswold Way extends for over one hundred miles while passing through picturesque villages with stunning views of the countryside. Both Bath and the city of Bristol are under and hour away and London lies over two hours east.
