Places to visit

If you haven’t already got lots of fun things planned for your stay, please use this page to give you some ideas of what to do throughout your stay in The Cotswolds!

Nailsworth town – we have a brilliant selection of independent shops in Nailsworth.  Some of our personal favourites include Junglist just over the road in Market Street, Coco, PulpArmed and Gorgeous and Edemo who hire a fantastic range of electric bikes – an incredible way to explore the Five Valleys.

Minchinhampton Common– a 5 minute drive onto the beautiful common, lots of walks, golf course & of course a cosy pub! In the summer months the cows and horses roam, so take care!

Woodchester Valley– A wonderful family-owned boutique vineyard and winery in the South Cotswolds. They have three vineyard sites in the Stroud valleys which produce a range of still white, rose and sparkling wines.

Woodchester Mansion-The mansion is a unique and amazing Grade I listed Victorian Gothic house hidden in a beautiful Cotswold valley.
It is an unfinished masterpiece. Building started about 1857, but stopped in the mid-1860s so floors and ceilings are missing, walls not plastered and windows unglazed. All the secrets of the construction of the Mansion are visible – something visitors will never see in another country house.

Newark Park – Newark Park is a Grade I listed country house of Tudor origins located near the village of Ozleworth, Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire. The house sits in an estate of 700 acres at the southern end of the Cotswold escarpment with views down the Severn Valley to the Severn Estuary.

Highgrove House & Gardens – Highgrove is the private residence of TRH The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, near Tetbury in Gloucestershire. Since 1980 when the Prince of Wales first arrived at Highgrove, His Royal Highness has devoted much energy to transforming the gardens around the house, which are renowned as some of the most inspiring and innovative in the United Kingdom.

Stroud Farmers Market –  This is a multi award-winning farmers market and is well known as one of the biggest, busiest and most popular farmers’ market in the UK. Every Saturday 9am-2pm.
