Five secluded cottages with flagstone floors and log fires on an old fashioned Cotswold Hill Farm. Walk the wild flower meadows, hidden valleys and ancient bluebell woods rich in wildlife.
At Westley Farm we value our natural environment and manage the land sensitively to encourage wildlife habitats. We are currently working to re-introduce the Marsh Fritillary butterfly. You may see buzzards, badgers, foxes, deer as well as sheep and cattle from your windows. With a choice of good pubs within easy walking distance, space to dry any wet gear and a log fire to come home to, we are the perfect base for a holiday exploring the excellent walking on and around the farm.
The legacy of the Golden Valley’s industrial past can be seen in the romantic overgrown canal, ivy-clad mill ruins and weavers’ cottages; some beautifully restored by the Arts & Crafts movement. These Cotswold valleys still attract artists and craftsmen with thriving workshops, studios, micro-breweries and cheesemakers to visit or see their products at the award-winning local farmers markets.
We are half-way between Stroud and Cirencester. Activities offered nearby include riding, golf, gliding and watersports.
One of the bedrooms is on the ground floor. You may wake up to find cattle licking your windows! The spacious bathroom has a bath and seperate generous shower unit.
