It’s been a hard year for all of us. Countless months of having to deal with so many unknowns, feeling overwhelmed with indescribable worry and profound anxiety. A global pandemic? What a time to be living through. There has been a real sense of loss with COVID-19 taking grip of us all so ferociously and putting so much fear into our hearts, forcing us all to turn down seeing family. What could be more important than that? We know you’ve been feeling it too, we all have. Despite all of the terrible news this year, we’re feeling grateful to be able to shine a light and share our passion coming out of such a dark time.
What we all need is a well-deserved break, a break away from everything to just relax and be. To be looked after without any stress of where to eat and what is a safe proximity. We want you to feel free to get together with your nearest and dearest, to enjoy a family gathering, to be close once again because taking a moment to breathe and return home is what we all need.
So, we are delighted to invite you to your home away from home, your English Cottage Vacation in a tiny hamlet called Bedchester in the north Dorset countryside, in the south of England. A staycation in a traditional, 18th-century English thatched cottage with all of the thrills and frills of a luxury, private holiday to get away from it all with everything having been thought out carefully to ensure a safe, stress-free stay.
We have it all covered, so that you don’t feel the need to travel overseas to experience something new and exciting. Rediscover the sound of fun and laughter filling a household and bathe in the energy of your friends and family, all of your loved ones together, in our wonderful cottage, a space that is your own to get back in touch with the magic of ‘home’.
We take everything personally, priding ourselves on taking care of all of your needs, so your holiday is specially crafted for you and your family, to make up for all the time lost this year. Savour lovingly cooked gourmet meals by your own private in-house chef and host, removing the need to think about booking ahead to get a socially-distanced table out at a busy restaurant, surrounded by strangers. We want you to feel as though you can return back to normal, not having to stress about remembering to wear your masks in every moment, with the constant unease of not feeling safe.
We have carefully planned and organised outings accompanied by your own private driver, to ensure your days are spent on what matters most, instead of wasting time on tiresome research for what to do in the local areas – then inevitably missing the best secret spots. We make sure you get the most out of the local area knowing it intimately ourselves! Embrace the exquisite scenery surrounding us with rolling, luscious hills and mystical forests to explore nearby. Breathe in the fresh air and feel renewed as the morning light greets you. Take it all at your own pace and make time for slow strolls.
Choose from adrenaline-fuelled, open-air activities to get your heart racing for all the right reasons. Or rather, indulge in a sweet cup of tea while enjoying the peace of your glorious country garden where you’ll be soaking up the goodness of the great British sun. Our goal is to bring ease to achieving your dream holiday experience, so that you don’t have to worry about a thing – and even more importantly – so that you don’t have to worry about leaving the comfort of your country.
This is more than a holiday. This is a reminder to cherish the now. This is a gift to yourself to return to calm, serenity and stability by allowing yourself to slow down, away from all the noise, to ground down and recenter. A little bit of bliss in such an unstable time is what we all need. Share the experience with your loved ones and make unforgettable memories to last a lifetime. This is home.
We are so looking forward to looking after you.
