About this location

The Gloucestershire region

Deerhurst - In nearby Deerhurst, which is about a mile away, there is St Mary's Church and Odda's Chapel. The date of the foundation of Deerhurst as an Anglo-Saxon minster church is unknown. However, the church was already in existence in 804 – more details can be found on the website. The church is open most days and visitors are welcome.

Combe Hill Nature Reserve - Turn left out of the drive, follow the lane round to the left. At the end of the lane, turn right. At the traffic lights turn right. Turn right at the next traffic lights after The Swan.

Cheltenham (6 miles)

Conveniently located, Cheltenham is an ideal base for touring into the Cotswolds, Stratford upon Avon and Bath. Regency town houses, characterised by intricate ironwork balconies and painted stucco facades, line the historic Promenade, squares and terraces. With its award-winning gardens, impressive range of stylish shops and restaurants, and its festivals of horse racing, music and literature.

Tewkesbury (3 miles)

Tewkesbury is now a thriving town and at the same time is a living museum of architecture and social history spanning over 500 years. The town has such a perfectly preserved medieval character that in 1964 The Council of British Archaeology listed it amongst 57 towns "so splendid and so precious that the ultimate responsibility for them should be of national concern".

Tewkesbury is a pure delight to behold and we have no hesitation in highly recommending it as a 'MUST' place to visit by all tourists visiting the northern Cotswolds Gloucestershire region - an effort that will be amply rewarded in the memories and images you will forever keep and treasure. Tewkesbury is dominated by the 12th-century Abbey.

Gloucester (8 miles)

The City of Gloucester has a unique history from its Roman foundations to its Victorian docklands. Gloucester is a vibrant multicultural city that combines historic architecture with a unique blend of visitor attractions, festivals and entertainment, a collection of high street and specialist shops and a mouth watering array of tea shops, restaurants, wine bars and pubs offer food and drink for all tastes. The city is overlooked by the Cotswolds Hills in the lush Severn Valley and is easily accessible from all corners of the country

The former abbey church founded 1300 years ago is now the cathedral church of the Gloucester Diocese.

"Countryside relaxation"

The dovecote, an ornate country retreat which is just that bit special. Small picturesque lake, ducks & comfortable accommodation made this stay ideal. Our host was most welcoming & even baked us a cake. Directions given to the property and basics of tea, coffee etc provided as well as all bed linen and towels. Cheltenham is only a 15 minute drive away.

Glad you enjoyed it. Hope you can visit again sometime!

We booked this as a surprise for my moms 60th birthday and she utterly adored it. It's tranquil and beautiful yet a few minutes drive to bustling cities. The cake was delicious, the house was just gorgeous and Helen was super lovely. We will definitely be coming to stay again!

Glad you had a great time - hope to see you again!
