Windfalls luxurious blend of old and new with sumptuous free standing baths and even its own baby suite, fully equipped for the youngest guest, is situated in its own private gardens within the grounds of a grade II listed 16th century house on the edge of the Cotswolds village of Beckford.
Our architect designed cottage will seduce you with its unfussy contemporary style, all wrapped up in a modern take on a medieval inspired construction comprising an immense green oak aisle frame and fronted with an oversize porch. The house is lovingly crafted and comprising more than 12 tonnes of sustainably grown green oak. The interior is a blend of high quality natural oak and limestone floors and contemporary luxuries in the form of under floor heating, decadent free-standing baths, powerful showers and a stunning bespoke oak kitchen with Aga. Enjoy uninterrupted views South towards the Cotswold escarpment over our adjoining orchard, home to our ducks and hens they may even lay you a few fresh eggs.

Windfall sleeps up to 6 in 3 double suites (2 are king size) each with their own luxurious bathroom facilities so families or groups of friends can all enjoy their own privacy.

All bedrooms are ensuite and are equally but distinctively furnished with gorgeous Egyptian cotton linen, fluffy white towels, digital flat screen TVs. If you can drag yourself away from the relaxed social atmosphere of the farmhouse kitchen or from an evening spent barbequing on the patio, you will find our stunning sitting room a perfect place to end the evening in front of the roaring log fire or with the French doors thrown open, watching the world in our orchard go by.
The house is set in the grounds of our grade II listed property, but has its own private gardens and uninterrupted views to the South over the adjoining orchard towards the Cotswold escarpment. Our orchard is home to our hens and their house and if you are lucky they will lay you an egg or two each day, as may our ducks. There is a mixture of some ancient and many recently planted fruit trees of local varieties, apples, plums, gages and the famous Worcester Black Pear for you to enjoy in season.
