Tumble down the track to Westley Farm and break free. Families 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. Let the children make new friends – 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 also find a private view-filled walled garden – a serene spot for a sundowner.
A 15-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. The Crown is an amble away across fields.
