Calm and charm in the Cotswolds

When an English summer permits, there’s no more enchanting a place than Easter Cottage to spend time just chilling in the Cotswolds.

No Man’s an island

If you’ve ever wistfully gazed out to sea and thought you’d really like to get away from it all – the mayhem of cities, the noise of incessant media and crowds, crowds, crowds – then relaxing on an island in the middle of the sea with nothing but seagulls, some staff… and friends if you want them… is sure to be idyllic.   If you haven’t got your own private helicopter, like us...
