Head up the hill to the vineyard at the top and the Stroud valleys spread out below you. It’s an area full of wooded hills, pretty villages, arty events – and inspiring artisans like the Woodchester team.
The suites are in a restored barn next to the fields of vines. Each has its own big living room downstairs – watch TV, warm your feet on the underfloor heating or by the gas log-burner. Order a continental basket that includes crumpets, croissants and granola, and rustle up your breakfast when you want. Admire fabulous valley or vineyard views from floor to ceiling windows; sip a Bacchus white or Pinot Rosé on your terrace or balcony after a day’s exploring.
Taster evenings are on offer and you can book one of their tours, which includes a visit to the winery, learning about the grapes and process and a tasting session. There’s a Cellar Door shop too, if you want to call in on your way home.
