The Old Mission Church is found in the picturesque village of Paxford, set amongst the idyllic backdrop of the Cotswolds. Dating back to 1866, the historic church has been impeccably renovated and transformed into a luxurious holiday retreat for four, as seen on George Clarke’s Remarkable Renovations. The magnificent home is the ideal base from which to discover the glorious countryside, charming market towns and quaint villages of the Cotswolds. The property perfectly blends contemporary design with the original architecture and features of the church. Upon entering, you’ll be wowed by the stunning stained-glass windows and high vaulted ceiling. The open-plan interior is as stylish as it is comfortable, with exquisite attention put into every detail. It has been furnished with a premium mix of vintage, antique and bespoke pieces, with fixtures and fittings of the highest standard. There’s plenty of space for guests to unwind inside the home. One lovely place to relax is the lounge, with a comfy chaise sofa, TV with Amazon Fire Stick and a log-burning stove to keep you warm and cosy on chilly nights. When it’s time to eat, guests can make use of the bespoke kitchen, fitted with modern appliances and everything you could need to cook up a storm. Meals can be enjoyed around the large central island or in the chancel dining area at the back of the room, underneath the beautiful stained-glass window. The Old Mission Church features two delightful bedrooms, both boasting sumptuous king size beds, cloud soft pillows and premium bedding. The ground-floor bedroom benefits from a blend of new and authentic features. The bespoke headboard features panels reclaimed from the church’s pulpit, whilst an elegant free-standing bath adds a touch of opulence. It also boasts a stylish ensuite with a walk-in shower, washbasin and WC. The second bedroom ‘The Pod’ is a real highlight of the stay. An open tread glass and steel staircase leads up to the ‘floating’ mezzanine bedroom, nestled under original wooden beams. A large glass window provides views of the living space, with a voile curtain for privacy. You’ll also find an abundance of outside space, including a gorgeous, landscaped garden and two patios. The south-facing patio with painted pews is the perfect place to enjoy an aperitif in the early evening sun, whilst the rear patio is the best spot to catch a sunset. The surrounding fields and wildflower meadows are ideal for evening strolls and dog walks. Paxford is a small and friendly village, ideally positioned for access to the market towns of Chipping Campden and Moreton in Marsh. The village is surrounded by miles of countryside, with countless public footpaths and trails waiting to be explored right on your doorstep. Worked up an appetite from all that walking? You’ll be pleased to know that there is a great selection of pubs and restaurants in the local area, including the award-winning Ebrington Arms within walking distance.

    • 2 nights min low season 3 nights high & Weekends

    Padding about in Adder Treehouse is an exercise in meditation, with clutter-free, light and airy spaces pushing your focus to beautiful design, and the incredible wilderness around. There are six spaces in total on the Rewild Things Estate, and Adder Treehouse is most similar to her sisters, Kite Treehouse and Wildcat Treehouse, with space for three to luxuriate in downtime in its carefully curated interior. Indoors, you’ll find the bedroom, where you’ll pair the coffee station with the reading nook, and set a crackling log fire in the burner for a soundtrack. Outdoors, you’ll find the kitchen on the covered deck, for cooking in the fresh air come rain or shine. It’s also where you’ll spy the loungers by the BBQ fire pit for those lazy afternoons in the sun, or late nights toasting marshmallows. And right at the edge of the deck, sits the outdoor bath, where you’ll sink slowly into steaming water, and watch the birds swoop over the rewilded wetlands. If getting out and exploring is on this getaway’s wish list – then you’re in luck. Adder Treehouse is perfectly placed between three major wild spaces, Wye Valley AONB to your west, The Cotswolds to your east, and the Malvern Hills AONB to your North – so whether you’re looking for hikes with incredible views, or paddleboarding down scenic rivers – it’s all in easy reach.
