A blissful bolt-hole nestled in breathtaking countryside offering glorious views, utter seclusion and fantastic pubs just a walk away, Westley Farm’s unique holiday cottages are available for weekend breaks, mid-week and full-week stays all year round.
As featured in The Daily Telegraph, The Observer Magazine and on the VisitEngland website.
The perfect pastoral idyll… Westley Farm’s 70 acres are sublimely beautiful and home to five cottages and a central farmhouse… Ponies and sheep graze the fields, doves coo from the surrounding woodland, deer and foxes are frequently seen.”
Tucked away down a meandering drive at the head of the Golden Valley, Westley Farm is one of the Cotswolds’ best-kept secrets. Five self-catering, pet-friendly cottages, each with its own quirky charm, hidden on a 70-acre farm, surrounded by ancient woodland, rolling meadows and unrivalled views.
From spring to autumn we have a beautiful yurt available, set in the farm’s magnificent ancient woodland, with a unique roll-top bath inside a horse box. We have also just completed work on a blissful log cabin, set in another part of the woods with a watering can shower and antique wood-burning stove.
For the adventurous a canal runs along the edge of the farm, leading to the nearby town of Stroud, home to a thriving arts scene and a bustling farmer’s market. A 15 minute walk across the fields takes you to the nearest pub, The Crown at Frampton Mansell, a quintessential open-beamed Cotswolds inn where you can sit outside and watch the sun go down over the hills. Close by is the historic open common of Minchinhampton, where cows graze across the golf links. Further afield is the Roman market town of Cirencester.
Our cottages have one, two or three bedrooms, flagstone floors, fully-equipped kitchens, sheepskin rugs, Cotswold stone walls, wood-burning stoves or open fires – all the traditional things – as well as a few mod cons, in case you want to reconnect with the outside world, from 4G and free wifi to Freeview digital TV. Dogs are welcome and if there’s anything you need, just ask.
We’ve taken countless vacations as a family and I have to say that this has been an absolute high point. Thanks for sharing your little piece of paradise!
