The whole Woodchester property is impressive and this handsome self-catering house, at the lower end of the estate has an especially tranquil feel, and a very high-spec kitchen. A modern build in traditional Cotswold stone, with beautiful fabrics and locally made furniture, its big windows bring in masses of light; you needn’t get up from your bed to enjoy the views.
Gail will gladly set up a tour of the vineyards and a tasting – you may choose a house Pinot rosé or a sparkling wine to have with dinner around the generous table; or outside around the barbecue. Two sitting rooms, three wood-burners, books and games make this a flexible, comfortable space for groups to share at any time of year.
Walk to Nailsworth with its shops and eateries, in half an hour or so. Shop at Stroud’s weekly market. Bath and Cheltenham are under an hour’s drive.
