Wolsey Lodge at Barton House in Moreton-in-Marsh

Barton House lies at the heart of a glorious village in the North Cotswolds, well known to Shakespeare and only 17 miles south of Stratford-upon-Avon. This Elizabethan manor house, extensively redesigned by Inigo Jones in 1636, stands majestically opposite the village green beside the 12th century parish Church.

A marvellous sense of taste prevails in the quietly elegant interior. Antique furnishings and oriental rugs and carpets grace the oak panelled sitting and dining rooms which guests are welcome to use.

Beautifully appointed bedrooms with en suite bathrooms are furnished in a subtle oriental style and enjoy stunning views over lawns and fountains to the Cotswold countryside.

Cyclamen, magnolias and rhododendrons in spring, and maples, tulip trees and acers in autumn, create colourful accents all year round. A Japanese garden, secret garden, rose garden, tennis court and croquet lawn also make up the glorious grounds - as does a vineyard. 2002 was a good year, 2005 was sensational!
