Dining & Shopping at the Granary.
Lovettswood Farm is situated between 2 villages, Hillesley & Hawkesbury Upton; both are under half a mile away from the Cottage.

Hawkesbury Upton village has 2 pubs. The Beaufort Inn, which serves traditional English Pub Grub & The Fox Inn, which serves Italian Cuisine. Hawkesbury also has a village shop, a post office and a farm shop. Although the same distance from the Farm as Hillesley, Hawkesbury Upton is reached by a trek up a near vertical hill! But good for the waist line and of course downhill all the way back! The nearby Bodkin Country Inn serves fine food & wine as does The Hare & Hounds Hotel at Westonbirt and The Snooty Fox Hotel in Tetbury. The nearest supermarket, a Co-op, is 4 miles away in the picturesque wool town of Wotton-Under-Edge, as is a Tesco express with late night opening. The nearest hypermarket, a Tesco, is in the not so pretty shopping centre of Yate, 8 miles away. Remember, you can always do an on-line shop and have it delivered to Lovettswood Farm after your arrival time!
You won't be disappointed with the warm country welcome at The 4* Granary!
A SELECTION FROM OUR EXCELLENT GUEST BOOK….
Thank you for all the extras that made the cottage so comfortable. Travelling with a small baby - we were not sure what facilities there would be - we need not have worried - and next time (There will be a next time). we won't need to pack so much! We had a lovely break here, our first family holiday since J was born (10 weeks old). We are looking forward to returning in the spring/summer, as there is so much to see that we didn't have time for. Thanks once again, N, S & J P
What a wonderful place to spend our 10th Wedding anniversary! The cottage is so warm and welcoming, just like its owners! We have been to some very pretty villages & bigger towns. I've found some wonderful fabric shops & wish I could take them all back home with me. Oh well, guess I'll just have to come again! Thank you so much for making this trip so special, even the milking we will never forget! We will be sure to bring the children, I'm sure they & Archie would get on like a house on fire! L-A & R, Manchester. UK
Dear Rose & John, Well if you put a gun to my head demanding me to criticize anything at the Granary you'd just have to pull the trigger. Everything was perfect!! Also thank you both for the wonderful history of this farm, thoughtful and interesting. Thank you for the wine & chocolates. Hope we can come back soon. B & B H Bucks UK
We had a lovely time in your cottage. Our daughter love watching the baby cows and she made new friends with Holly the black dog and the cat. Lovely view from the kitchen window towards the hills. The cottage is lovely and fully equipped; all you might need is there! We've seen many things, but there is still a lot to explore left, maybe for next time. Many thanks for your hospitality and your explanation about the farm. Thanks and a kiss for Holly. J, D & C. Holland
We have had a lovely relaxing week at the Granary. We have slept well, visited beautiful villages and countryside, and eaten well on local produce. Holly the dog paid us regular visits for the odd naughty treat, and is now our best friend! Rose & John have been truly welcoming and have provided us with a lovely, cosy, clean cottage that we have loved staying in. We would certainly stay again in the future. J & C. UK.
We have had a fab time in the 'cosy cottage'; it is in a wonderful location, very well equipped and very spacious for a holiday cottage. We all enjoyed our tour round the Dairy with John. Really enjoyed our stay. Thank you. The K Family Norfolk.
We have spent a lovely week at the cottage. We were made very welcome by Rose, John & 'Holly' and loved seeing the cows and the farm. We have visited lots of places in the area and really enjoyed Tetbury and Bourton-on-the-Water, and National Trust properties. Congratulations on getting your 4* rating, it is well deserved. J & D. West Sussex.
We knew it was going to be a treat to stay here, but little did we know how great a treat! Our eyes could hardly believe what we saw as we approached! And the cottage didn't fail either. It is so well appointed and comfortable. And the views out of the windows are so inspiring. Thanks for providing a truly delightful place in the Cotswold's--away from the crowds. A & K. USA
An excellent holiday at Lovettswood Farm. I have thoroughly enjoyed my short time here. The area is a beautiful one and there is so much to see and do. I never imagined I would be so lucky with the weather - a heat wave, no less. G W. Cornwall, UK
'What a warm welcome we received on arrival at the Granary! The Cottage looked cosy and inviting, the Christmas tree, twinkling in the corner, was an extra touch which added to our delight. What more could we want! We went to the coast; to Clevedon. Where a brisk walk along the pier set us up for lunch at 'Five the beach'...........We really enjoyed our stay at the Granary and would like to thank Rose & John for making our short stay extra special. Thank you. C & P, Glossop, Derbyshire
Had a fantastic stay away from the stresses and strains that policing in London can bring. Weather fab, cottage warm and welcoming! Rose is a great host and thanks for everything. Fabulous meal at Bodkin House and a great pint down at the Fleece. Will be coming back at some stage I'm sure. S & A. London, UK.

The Cottage has an 'up-side-down' layout, in that the spacious Lounge & Kitchen are entered from ground level, but the bedrooms & bathroom are then situated downstairs! This ensures that the more stunning views can be enjoyed from the Lounge and Kitchen diner windows and that the bedrooms stay cool in the summer and toasty warm in the winter! The sun porch, with its whicker chairs & table and picture window, offers a lovely place to sit, relax, enjoy the view and enjoy a glass or two of complimentary wine!
The cottage also boasts a separate WC on the kitchen/Lounge level, handy if you are enjoying a BBQ on the upper patio. The Granary cottage was fully re-furbished in 2011, offering 4* comfort in the depths of the English Countryside, but close to local amenities! There are 3 Country Inns within walking distance!
|Further details outdoors|
The Granary's private gardens have 2 patio areas with tables, chairs and sun umbrella's, the upper patio also has a large charcoal BBQ. (Charcoal provided). The lawned area, directly in front of the cottage, is ideal for sitting out on and enjoying the stunning views! Children love to play on the lawn and watch the cows coming in for milking or the farmers working in the fields on the tractors. We provide out door toys for them to play with, including.... sit-on toys, paddling pool, Little Tykes play house, Little Tykes climbing frame and a sand tray for our younger guests.
About this location
The Gloucestershire region
The Cotswolds, designated an area of outstanding natural beauty, gains most of it character from its picturesque, Cotswold stone built, cottages, houses and famous dry stone walls. In the Gloucestershire Cotswolds we have the benefit of being perched on the edge of the Cotswold Escarpment, this is what gives rise to the stunning views from the Granary, whilst still being well placed to tour the picturesque wooded valleys and rolling wolds of the plateau top. One of the best walking areas in Britain, The Cotswold Way & the Monarch's Way, run through our land! Many of the lovely villages in the surrounding area have been used as film locations, a true testament to their beauty! Whole villages, such as Castle Coombe & Lacock, will have very few visible signs of modern life, not an aerial or satellite dish in site! We have many, many pre-history sites in the area; the countryside is literally littered with Barrows & Encampments! The awesome standing stone circles of Avebury Village are a must visit, as is Silbury Hill & the Kennet Long Barrow, not to mention our very own local 'Roman Camp', which was actually built 1,500 years before the Roman occupation! The Roman's liked the West Country, and widely settled it, due to the much milder climate it offered than the north of the country, which is still very much applicable today!
Dining out at the Granary Holiday Cottage
There are 3 country Inns/Pubs within walking distance of the Granary Holiday Cottage (0.5 miles).
The Fleece Inn, situated in the village of Hillesley, is a community owned Pub, it serves lovely home cooked food at reasonable prices, fine wine and local beer. open all day, every day, and is a gentle stroll from the Cottage.
The two Hawkesbury Upton village pubs are a more challenging walk away! 0.5 miles, but mostly up a steep hill! The Beaufort Inn serves good pub grub and welcomes walkers/hikers. The Fox Inn serves excellent Italian Cuisine. All 3 of the Public Houses are historic, genuinely old, typical Cotswold stone built hostelries.
More fine dining can be found at The Bodkin Inn Restaurant, The Hare & Hounds Hotel or the Snooty Fox Inn, all 3-5 miles away.
The Granary Cottage is ideally placed to tour all that the beautiful Cotswolds & Royal Gloucestershire has to offer! You can visit he many well know picture post card Cotswold villages and towns, such as Castle Coombe, Bourton-On-The-Water, Broadway, Stow-on-the-Wold & Letchlade, but also the less well known, but every bit as pretty, Cotswold villages & towns, such as Minchinhampton, Painswick, Wotton-Under-Edge & Tetbury. We are just 3 miles from Badminton, which makes the Granary an ideal place to stay for the BHS Badminton Horse Trials!
The town of Tetbury is just a few miles away, it is home to the new Royal Baby Grandparents, HRH Prince Charles and Camilla. At their home Highgrove House, you can, by booking in advance, tour Highgrove's beautiful organic gardens! Why not follow this with a visit to the Prince's Trust Highgrove Shop on Tetbury high street! The Cotswolds aren't, however, just about picturesque villages & scrummy cream teas! There are plenty of more adventurous activities on offer! You can take a chauffeured Motor-Trike tour of the Cotswolds, throw a high performance car around Castle Coombe's Race Circuit, take a stomach dropping Glider flight from the plateau, over the edge of the Cotswold escarpment to the Severn Vale below, take an adventurous Balloon flight over the beautiful Berkeley Vale, (you may even land in one of our fields!), hone your survival skills at paintballing, or your competitive skills at Go-Kart racing, Rock Climb the side of the Cheddar Gorge if you dare, and much more!
Many famous National Trust & English Heritage properties & sites nearby, most of which have been used to film anything from Harry Potter to Cranford and Pride & Prejudice to Dr Who! Lacock Abbey & Gardens, Dyrham House, Newerk House, Avebury Village, Bath's Assembly Rooms, to name but a few!
Walk in Jane Austen's footsteps! The stunning Regency City of Bath was once home to the famous author; indeed she set her darkly Gothic tale, Northanger Abbey in Bath! The Jane Austen Experience is a must for fans, or if you just want one of the best afternoon teas Bath has to offer!
For our younger guests, apart from learning all about farming from Farmer John, there is a huge variety of attractions and events to keep them occupied!
Adventure/Play Attractions: Bowood Adventure Park, Old Down Country Park, Robins Wood Country Park & Dry Ski Slope, Magic Land Soft Play.
Farm/Adventure Parks: Cotswold Farm Park (Adam's Farm from Countryfile), Cattle Country, Avon Valley Country Park, St Augustine's Farm.
Stream Trains/Transport. Avon Valley Steam Railway, Calne Motor Museum.
Zoos/Animal Parks: Longleat House & Safari Park, Bristol Zoo & Gardens, Noah's Ark Farm Zoo, Horseworld.
Bird Parks/Attractions: Slimbridge Wild Fowl & Wetland Centre, Bird Land, Prinknash Abbey Bird & Deer Park. Cotswold Falconry Centre, Newent Birds of Prey.
Caves/Adventure Centres: Wookey Hole, Cheddar Caves & Gorge, Clearwell Caves.
Not forgetting our very own 700 year old Berkeley Castle, with its gristly history and special event days!
We can even boast that we have a beach! The Keynes Countryside Park, within the Cotswold Water Park, has the premier inland beach in the country! Next to the lake, with stunning countryside views, you also have the advantage of a children's play area and safe BBQ pitches.
There is so much to see and do in the Gloucestershire Cotswolds, it is impossible to list it all! But you can as least be assured you wont be bored!

We are so glad you had a wonderful holiday down on the farm, at our 4 Star Granary holiday Cottage. You are right, we pride ourselves on our family friendliness here, in fact we have a Families Welcome award from Quality in tourism! It was a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family, you were perfect guests and we hope to see you all again soon!

Thank you so much for your kind review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your summer holiday down on the well stocked Lovettswood Farm! Holly the dog missed the twins when you had gone, she so loves the little ones that come to stay, I think she finds it so confusing that guests come and go, she looks on them as family! We do,in fact, have only one generation of farmers living in the farm house, just Farmer John & I! I am VERY thankful to say that all 3 of our sons left home quite a while ago, it just APPEARS that they and the Grandchildren live here! lol! (We love it really!) We so enjoyed having your lovely little family staying in the cottage, and we hope to see you and the twins again one day soon. Rose & Farmer John xx

We are so pleased that you really enjoyed your holiday in our wonderful English countryside, and that you found the Granary Cottage so comfortable. We were very impressed with your command of the English language, you put us to shame, as we know no Dutch at all! Farmer John enjoyed giving you the farm tour as much as you enjoyed having it, he loves to chat to our guests and spread a positive message about Dairy Farming in the 21st century! We do so hope to see you all again some day, perhaps we will have a little Dutch by then! Rose & John x
We zijn zo blij dat je echt genoten van uw vakantie in onze prachtige Engels platteland, en dat je gevonden hebt de Graansilo Cottage zo comfortabel. We waren erg onder de indruk van uw beheersing van de Engels taal, je ons te schande, want we kennen geen Nederlanders bij allen! Farmer John genoot van het geven u de boerderij tour zoveel als je genoten hebben van het, hij houdt om te chatten met onze gasten en verspreiden een positieve boodschap over Dairy Farming in de 21ste eeuw! We hoeven dus hopen jullie allemaal weer te zien op een dag, misschien zullen we een beetje Nederlanders hebben door dan! Rose & John x

We are so pleased that you really enjoyed your holiday in the depths of the Cotswolds countryside, down on the farm; you certainly couldn't complain about the weather, the heat wave was glorious wasn't it! We're sorry you found the tractors, cows and Holly the dog a bit noisy, but we're glad you enjoyed our beautiful views and that you and your little one were able to make full use of our outdoor facilities and all the great places to visit nearby. We are always more than happy to help our lovely guests with any difficulties they may have, such as accessing our Wi-Fi or using the oven. We so hope that the lovely weather followed you to the seaside break you were going to enjoy after you left here, and that you had some fun times on the beach with your gorgeous little lad!

"Fantastic holiday - highly recommended!"
We have just had a Mon-Fri break at The Granary which was perfect for our family - 4 yr old daughter & 20 mth son who so enjoyed being in the countryside! The cottage was fully equipped with everything we could ever want, it was cosy, comfortable and so warm. Rose made sure we had stairgates, booster seats, change mat & cot with a box of toys and books which kept the children happy! Also a bottle of wine, chocolates & cookies on arrival, so kind. We bought yummy eggs from Archie's hens too. Farmer John spent precious time showing us around the farm, and talking to us about the day to day running of the farm. Our son was very excited to see the tractors close up. He spent a lot of our holiday "tractor-watching" from the cottage, and loved seeing the milk tanker arriving! We explored the local area - enjoyed a meal at The Fleece in Hillesley, a wander around Wotton, a day @At-Bristol science place (which the kids loved) and also Bibury, Castle Combe...endless places to visit and not enough time! We will definitely be back! Thank you xx
We do have the nicest guests here at the Granary! Thank you so much for your kind words, it was a pleasure to meet your little family and Farmer John very much enjoyed showing you around the farm. We're glad your little lad enjoyed watching the milk tanker come and go and the tractors driving around, Farmer John certainly has plenty of them, a ratio of around 3 Tractors to each of the 4 of them I believe! :0) We are very much looking forward to seeing you all again soon. Rose & John x
27 Dec 2012
We came here for a short Christmas Break with my 3 year old daughter, my sister and parents and the first thing we said when we walked through the door was WOW! My little girl was welcomed with a huge dolls house and a Shaun the Sheep welcome pack which she loved and a little present under the Christmas tree (this was the only present she played with the whole time were there :-)) We were welcomed with a Christmas Hamper with wine and chocolates and little Christmas gifts.
It is such a cosy little cottage and they cater for all ages. We had such a lovely relaxing break and we were lucky enough to go and see the cows being milked and to feed the new born calves.
Rose and Farmer John are the most perfect hosts and would highly recommend the cottage to everyone. We will definately be back soon!!
Thank you for your very kind words and we are thrilled that you so enjoyed your Christmas at The Granary. It was such a pleasure to meet you all and we very much hope you will be back to stay soon, we enjoyed the little chats! Rose & John x

Thank you for such a wonderful review! It was lovely to meet you both and that gorgeous little boy, and to learn all about the 'Sleepy Wings' swaddler!
