Tumble down the track to Westley Farm and break free. Families with children will love Dan and Ali’s 70 acres which you are encouraged to explore. Two friendly dogs, free-range chickens and ponies to ride add to the fun. There are woods to explore (and make dens in), meadows to picnic in and wildlife to spot.
Your one-storey retreat is open plan and well-equipped with logs for the fire, books, games and a telly if the weather turns foul. You’ll find a homemade cake, and a private view-filled walled garden – a serene spot for a sundowner.
A ten-minute walk will take you to Chalford and the Lavender Bake House for tea and cakes or hop in the car to explore Stroud and stock up at the farmers’ market (every Saturday) and The Brewery. You can also walk there along footpaths then get a taxi back. On some evenings you can gather round the communal pizza oven while the children make new friends, or amble across fields to The Crown.
