not just a great cosy cafe using it's home produced organic dairy products, but also a great dairy shop. Henry also runs the occasional pop up bar we took a guest to one of these at Christmas - got very bubbly. Rumoured to be a favourite of certain long running radio soap actors.

Not cheap but good quality, and fine food, - so it has been incredibly busy since it opened after the most fantastic refurbishment on 8th November 19, as well as being the only pub you can stagger back from with ease. Post Covid rule relaxation the pub is open but you need to book for eating and of course all the social distancing and hygiene rules apply

Chavenage has to be visited on a Sunday afternoon in season, (May - September) But the owner, David Lowsley-Williams, provides the best guided tours imaginable at 2:00 on those Sundays - see their web site for why most people go there... http://www.chavenage.com/

sculpture abounds in these delightful gardens as developed by "The Naked Gardeners" - well worth a visit.

Sightseeing
tourist central but if you can avoid high season, still a most delightful bridged river through the centre of the village, and on a weekday in Spring you might be able to park nearby.
Bourton-On-The-Water

beautiful classic Cotswold village built around a lovely little river - less touristy than Bourton but with good places to stop and eat.

Entertainment & Activities
currently a great chef, reliable, including vegan/veggie choices, great location for views as it is slap bang in the middle of the high common. We recommend - as with all venues since Lockdown began - ringing and checking availability.

Nice little theatre that gets a lot of the best stand up comedians, obviously the need to know and book in advance is big, as these gigs sell out not long after going on sale.

Parks & Nature
The trails through the trees are wonderful, and it's not just for autumn colour.

It is on our doorstep and I enjoy walking round it every week of the year. The "big sky" views are magnificent and the Iron age quarry works and ancient landscape also hold a 125 year old golf course where maneuvering the cows can be a part of the game. (there is the new course on the other side of Gatcombe for those who like pristine golf without cow poo). At the Rodborough end of the common there is "the Fort" currently owned and hugely renovated by Dale Vince, the owner of Ecotricity and chair of local league 2 football club, Forest Green Rovers. On a fine day you can share his views down the hill over Stroud and across to the black mountains of Wales in the distance.

good long walks through the grounds and the never completed Victorian Gothic mansion make for a nice typical Cotswold tourist attraction.

Shopping
Waitrose for certain things, down the Hill this side of Stroud, Sainsbury's for other things - down the other side of the hill, bit further away. Morrisons for the occasional convenient thing - nearer, just down the hill in Nailsworth... (apart from the local corner shop, every food store is down a hill)

Everything Else
North or southbound, the new Motorway services model may still be expensive, but these green and awake places (like the M6 sister outlet in Cumbria) concentrate on a great range of organic food and other products that you would be proud to take to a deserving relative. Because it's so close to us we don't tend to go much, but it's great if you are hitting the M5 and need to pick up some exciting produce, for yourself or others - as well as being the first motorway services that are actually pleasant to sit in or walk around.
