Sightseeing
Painswick - The Queen of the Cotswolds - is a beautiful historical village with plenty of wonderful Cotswold stone architecture and features its historic church with towering spire as it's centre-point. A stroll through the village is essential and there are numerous heritage boards around the main streets providing historical information. There is also a seasonal information centre located in the old gravediggers hut in the famous graveyard where you can discover the village's mystical yew trees. The Painswick Centre is also worth a visit, being an arts hub to the area and housing some local artists. A beautiful village with plenty of character!

A heavenly walk easily accessible from the house. The Beacon is wonderful with the Cotswold Way cutting its way through this historic space which was home to Iron Age man. The uphill Iron Age fort and topograph at the summit signposting views across to Gloucester Cathedral; Forest of Dean; The Malverns and The Black Mountains in Wales. The Beacon often has wild cattle grazing ( These areas are sectioned off with electric fencing) and the butterflies are wonderful in the warmer months.

A little bit of a drive (35-40 minutes) but well worth a visit. The castle is literally steeped in history having been the home to Henry VIII's final and surviving wife Katherine Parr. The exhibition displays inside the house are very interesting and the grounds are beautiful. There is plenty to keep the kids occupied and the drive across to Winchcombe - if you go cross country will not disappoint.

COVID 19 Update - currently serving takeaways and will reopen 12 April for outdoor drinks and dining. Renowned pub with breathtaking views. Very popular with locals, this was Laurie Lee's local and you can enjoy a pint of cider in the Laurie Lee bar featuring some of his beer collection. Food is great and features lots of local produce. A must visit when staying at Station House. There is plenty of outdoor seating which is covered and heated in the colder months. Muddy boots are not a problem. You can walk from the house and it will take about an hour. The walk is breathtaking but there are a few hills along the way!

A popular spot with local Stroudies and Real Ale lovers. This pub often has live entertainment and special themed foodie nights. Lovely pub garden but parking can be a bit tricky so sometimes best to park further down or get a taxi. Especially if trying the pubs beloved Spingo.
