The Experience

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.

Accommodation

Reviews

Beautiful setting and stunning accommodation. Thoroughly enjoyed the vineyard and wine tasting tour. Perfect. Cakes were delicious too. We'll recommend to all our family and friends. Thank you.

Emma

Wow! What an incredible lodge! So beautifully decorated, lovely finishing touches. It was such a fantastic place to relax and unwind after a busy week at work. Seeing how beautiful the place was, we ended up having picnics here instead of eating out so that we could appreciate the space as much as possible! The tour and wine tasting was fantastic, we loved the Culver Hill and Pinot Rosé. Hope to come back again, perhaps once the new reds are available - looking forward to it! Many thanks to the Shiner family & co.

Danny and Rach

A fabulous place to stay. Gorgeous accommodation, super comfortable, spacious and extremely high standard with excellent attention to detail. Lovely views from the bedroom and living room. Quiet and private but easily accessible to Nailsworth and Tetbury. Very friendly helpful hosts. We highly recommend The Vineyard for a short break or a longer stay.

Shelagh, Teddington

An absolute gem! High quality accommodation, which is extremely stylish and with many thoughtful touches. These include delicious cakes on arrival, a super breakfast hamper with local produce and a shelf of new paperbacks . The views are stunning and it was delightful to drink the vineyard's excellent wine on your private terrace watching the sunset over the valley. The wine tasting tour is fun, informative and highly recommended.

Clare, Durham

The 3 suites in the converted barn at Woodchester offer stunning, high quality accommodation in a delightful rural setting with fabulous views from the balcony and patio over surrounding farmland. We enjoyed the treats in the breakfast hamper plus home made cakes on arrival. The wines were delicious and we bought more to take home with us from the cellar shop nearby. Gail Shiner was extremely helpful and friendly before and during our stay. All in all a wonderfully relaxing place to stay that does not disappoint!

Location

The neighbourhood

There are many great walks across this part of the Cotswolds. You can join the Cotswold Way from behind the vineyard, the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way is a six-mile circular walk across the Slad Valley and there’s a canal towpath walk – or bike ride - from Stroud to Stonehouse. Nailsworth has heaps of good places to eat – a five-minute drive or 30-minute walk on a public footpath across fields. Stroud is not much further and has a lively Saturday market, bookshops and cafes. Westonbirt is a 15-minute drive, Cirencester 20 minutes – Bristol and Bath not much further.

Local points of interest from Gail Shiner

  • The guestrooms are located on a vineyard with a winery, tours and tastings are available on select dates, a short stroll from the accommodation. The Cellar Door shop where wines can also be tasted and purchased is open Tues-Sat 10am-6pm on the A46.
  • Woodchester valley vineyard is situated just 1,5 miles from the market town of Nailsworth. This thriving little town has a wide variety of shops and a great array of excellent restaurants, bars and pubs.
  • Stroud is brimming with independent shops and cafés and home to one of the best Farmers’ Markets (Saturday mornings) in the country, there are plenty of things to do in Stroud, described by Jasper Conran as ‘the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds’.
  • Woodchester Mansion just down the road, this Grade 1 listed Victorian Gothic style mansion was famously left unfinished when the family ran out of money in the 1870s. It was used as an army training ground in WWll.
  • The Cotswold Way. Offering 102 miles (164 KM) of magical discovery through the western edge of the Cotswold. From walking through picturesque villages to taking in the stunning views from the Cotswold escarpment, this is a must for walkers.
  • We are ideally located as a base to explore the Cotswolds and the towns of Cirencester, Cheltenham, Gloucester, Bath and Bristol are all within a 45 minute drive or less.

Introducing

Gail Shiner

Fiona Shiner grew up in Gloucestershire, spent 17 years in Hong Kong and then came back to settle in the South Cotswolds. Woodchester Valley has three vineyards, planted in 2007-2013, and includes areas where winemaking is recorded in the Doomsday book of 1086. The family-run vineyard now has 45 acres across the three sites, growing a range of different grape varieties. Their award-winning wines include white, rosé and sparkling. Fiona and Gail, her sister-in-law who looks after the guests, live nearby.
