The Central England / Cotswolds / Gloucestershire region
Tetbury is in the cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty and the landscape is a combination of rolling pasture land famous for its dry stone walls. The walls and roofs of barns and cottages have always been built with the local stone and, as a result, seem to grow out of the land.
There are stately homes to visit like Chavenage as well as pretty villages with rows of stone cottages like those in Minchinhampton, Easton grey or Tetbury's Chipping Steps. The famous Cotswold Way, a 5 day walking trail that passes within 7 miles of Tetbury, is quite stunning with its views over sheep- grazed valleys into villages like Uley and Horsley and eventually into the wonderful crescents and terraces of the Georgian city of Bath.
The Cirencester / Tetbury area
Beautiful buildings and farmland combine easily around these two 2 market towns which are less than 10 minutes from Doughton. 40 minutes away is either Bath, Bristol, or Cheltenham. Each very popular for shopping ,sight -seeing,concerts and theatre, but each also has something unique: Cheltenham, its famous racing festival in March, Bristol, the SS Great Britain and wonderful children's museums (@Bristol) and Bath, the newly refurbished Roman Baths and tea rooms made famous by Jane Austen's novels.
The National Arboretum at Westonbirt [3 mins drive] is a wonderful place to spend the day in every season of the year.
Visit the Abbey Gardens in Malmesbury, wonderful in late summer and autumn and the Badminton International Horse Trials[10 minutes drive] are held in the grounds of the Duke of Beaufort's well- run country estate, in May.

The accomodation was of a very high standard and provided excellent space in both the 4 bedrooms and living room areas. We booked the cottage for a long weekend for a number of families with small children and the open plan layout downstairs was perfect for both adults and children alike. We holidayed in Feb when there was snow and the cottage and surrounding area was beautiful. Local fields also allowed some sledging for the children. The cottage has an open fire and provided a basket of logs, which was ample. The cottage was lovely and warm with underfloor heating in the living room areas downstairs. The owners were very friendly and even provided a very tasty homemade cake upon arrival. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage.

9 of us recently stayed at The Pantiles. The barn is beautifully furnished and really welcoming. We were all very impressed with the decor and facilities. It is the perfect place for a large group of friends and would make an excellent choice for a family holiday. The location is fantastic also and the owners were very welcoming. We will probably all be back and would definitely recommend this property.
Thank you very much for your positive comments. we are glad you enjoyed your stay and would like to come back. We are keen to keep up the high standards you admired.

Finding a place to accommodate half a dozen families with kids aged 3 to 13 is not straightforward, finding somewhere they're all happy with is almost impossible. Twenty four years in and thirty-two properties down, we came across Doughton Barns and it's the only one to tick all the boxes for everyone: comfort, size, rooms, layout, cost, location, equipped kitchen, child-friendly, things-to-do, etc., even the weather! We've just had our second stay and everyone, young and older, loves the place and can't wait to get back.
Thank you very much for your super comments. It encourages us to keep it always as good.
