Nicholas and Karin Mander welcome you to Owlpen to experience this breathtaking and dreamy corner of the Cotswolds first hand and at leisure. The Owlpen lifestyle today continues the centuries-old traditions of hospitality, in the spirit of the family motto: vive bene, 'live well'.

In a clearing below Peter's Nest Wood, hard by a woodland spring, is the original tiny cottage of Woodwells farmstead. Outside, the grounds provide a meeting place for sociable pheasants. The cottage is approached up a long and sometimes bumpy private drive. It leads behind the church and manor house, past Manor Farm and Over Court cottages, into the heart of the beech woods. Surrounded by the steep hangers, off a drive, off a lane, off a minor road, buried in the bosom of the Cotswolds, here is a cosy hideaway that must be about as remote as you can get from the twentieth century in southern England.

A favourite with honeymooners and couples (especially walkers and those with dogs), this is perfect for two, Virgilian in bucolic peace and sweet sylvan scenery.
