The Experience

This old farmhouse snoozes in its own valley about a mile out of Stroud. It’s been restored from top to toe with lots of original features revealed or reinstated. The surrounding 100 acres are home to 100 alpacas and a small flock of black sheep.

There’s a big wood-burner in the guest sitting room, homemade biscuits and little fridges in smart bedrooms, and flowers in every room. Bea serves breakfast in the sunny dining room at separate tables: avocado on sourdough toast, American pancakes, homemade jams, croissants or a full English.

After a wander round to see the animals, head out on one of Bea’s recommended walks, visit the humming farmers’ market in Stroud or Painswick Rococo Garden (swathes of snowdrops in spring), then have dinner out at one of Nailsworth’s starred restaurants.

We had a wonderful stay at Hammonds Farm. The building is a very attractive farmhouse and has been tastefully refurbished inside. The room we stayed in (Longhorn) was very comfortable and had lovely views across the countryside. Breakfast was exceptional with plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Bea was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very much at home. She gave us lots of brilliant advice for enjoying the local area as well as a guide with 6 fantastic walks from the front door, which really helped us make the most out of exploring the beautiful surroundings. Thank you so much Bea!

Hammonds Farm was a first class experience. Bea is a warm, interesting, knowledgeable host and she runs a really excellent guest house. She is really a pro and every detail is thought about. She has excellent taste and standards. Your will not be disappointed!

Conall, Dublin

This is the most delightful place with wonderful comfortable rooms and beautiful outlook. The alpacas are a bonus and Bea’s breakfast the best ever. I can’t wait to return. How lucky we were to find it.

The neighbourhood

The house is about 1.5 miles from the Cotswold Way, a 100-mile path for walkers – there are drying rooms in the cellar for wet gear. You can do the circular six-mile Laurie Lee walk, which takes you across the Slad valley, or just amble to Stroud across fields in about 15 minutes: cafés, bookshops and cultural events. Foodie Nailsworth is a six-mile drive; the horse events at Gatcombe, Badminton and Cheltenham are all about 40 minutes away. The Butchers Arms in Sheepscombe is an easy hop for supper (four miles).

Local points of interest from Bea Hyde

  • Fantastic walks straight from the door, with 6 specially designed walks right from the farm, covering Stroud, Painswick and the home of Laurie Lee, the Slad Valley. Most of them incorporate a pub or two too!
  • We have a great collection of animals there are usually Alpacas, sheep, and horses here which guests love. In the spring, there maybe some bottle lambs to feed and in the summer some baby alpacas to see.
  • We are in a great position for Cheltenham Racing and Badminton and Gatcombe Horse Trials.
  • Easy reach of interesting houses and gardens to visit - Rodmarton Manor, Painswick Rococco Gardens, Woodchester Mansion, Newark Park, Colesbourne Park (snowdrops) and Westonbirt Arboretum
  • We are surrounded by beautiful countryside when you arrive you would never know we are just 1 mile away from Stroud and the fantastic farmers market on a Saturday morning.


Bea Hyde

Bea Hyde moved here in 2015, living in a caravan while the house was revamped and extended. She was very keen to uncover and reinstate lost original features, and to create a really inviting retreat. She and Harry with their little daughter Poppy live in the new wing. Bea has a company selling homemade jam, which will be started up again in the future. She’s a keen horse rider and does eventing; her horse Betty is due to foal in 2018 so there will be more animals to pat. You can arrange stabling for your own horse.
