Get set for the ultimate British Bonanza in style and comfort, from Pheasant Hill Temple Guiting and Dryhill Lodge both located in Gloucestershire to Carters Close situated in Oxfordshire.

In a spectacular setting high on the Cotswold escarpment, overlooking its own vineyard, Dryhill Lodge is a wonderful retreat for those looking to get back to nature. The design has a touch of alpine chic to it, creating a warm and welcoming home; one with some of the finest views in the Cotswolds, just five miles from Cheltenham Spa. On the ground floor, there are two king-size bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, a study and a coffee bar, both lined with aged larch timbers, the latter of which opens onto a barbecue courtyard with a Valoriani pizza oven and garden terrace. An elegant cantilever staircase leads up to a large open-plan living space with epic views and two new en-suite bedrooms. There's also a Bose sound system and a luxury kitchen with two Siemens ovens, an induction hob, separate Liebherr larder and wine fridges, as well as access to a new swimming pool.

An extended former Victorian hunting lodge, Brookside Lodge has five bedrooms and two bathrooms located in the main house and two bedrooms plus one bathroom in the self-contained cottage. Formally furnished, the two receptions rooms include a drawing room equipped with a baby grand piano, and a library/television room. The kitchen dining room can be set up for an intimate dinner or for up to 13 people seated at a large table that can be extended, and the private gardens offer more than 50 acres of far-flung views stretching across the rolling Cotswold hills. The heated outdoor swimming pool and pool house is situated in the rose garden behind the cottage and the rear courtyard has plentiful parking space.

Pheasant Hill is a stunning Cotswold stone five-bedroom house with an adjacent self-contained two-bedroom cottage, all set in an acre of private landscaped gardens, ideal for a multi-generational family stay. There are three reception areas in the main house plus a large, well-equipped family kitchen home to an AGA and a conventional fan oven. Sliding doors open on to the garden and all bedrooms in the main house have en-suite bathrooms. Two bedrooms, the terrace and upper garden are all on one level making Pheasant Hill a rare Cotswold property suitable for those with impaired mobility. The garden is private, secure and quiet with a period Japanese summer house as well as a separate fully equipped gym and barbecue area. The gated drive, that fronts onto a quiet lane, has parking for up to eight cars. Whilst there is no pub in the village, the renowned Temple Guiting Cafe & Pantry is only a three-minute walk and the pubs in Ford or Kineton are just 1.5 miles away.

Greenwich Lane Farm is a 17th-century Cotswold farmhouse with an extensive mature garden complete with a vegetable garden, treehouse and children's play area; and is in walking distance of the local village and its pub. There are five bedrooms in the main house, and three in the self-contained cottage situated just a few metres away. On the first floor there's a master bedroom with a large ensuite, a double bedroom, two attic bedrooms each with two single beds sharing a family bathroom and a single bedded nursery. There's also indoor games, a sound system, working fireplaces, a barbecue, bicycles and stair gates, cots and highchairs.

Carters Close in Bibury is an English country house tucked away in complete privacy amongst charming gardens. It has many quirky features, the most notable being it is a longhouse where the lateral living space comprises the kitchen, sitting room, dining room and a drawing room with two open fires in its length. The gardens are one of the jewels in Carter's Close's crown with manicured lawns, a wooded area home to wildflowers and an eclectic selection of sculptures which lead down to the River Coln. There's also a tennis court and the house is welcoming of dogs.
