This pretty rectory with ancient roots sits in a large, lush garden bursting with flowers, vegetables and fruit – including the famous Blaisdon plum. You’ll find home baked treats like flapjacks, scones or cake in the bedrooms along with fresh garden flowers and a silent mini-fridge. Gleaming bathrooms have fluffy towels, BeeKind soaps and shampoo and there are robes to relax in.
Wake to breakfast in the dining room or drawing room overlooking the garden: local bakery sourdough, eggs from their hens, bacon and sausages from Minsterworth, plus strawberry, rhubarb or gooseberry compote from the garden in season, homemade jams, marmalade and granola, locally roasted coffee from the Forest of Dean. Plan your day in the gorgeous drawing room where you’ll find maps and routes.
Walk up the hill behind you to look at the church. Views from here soar over the Severn and the gentle hills all the way to the spire of Gloucester Cathedral.
