The South Cotswolds is a beautiful place to escape and explore; here are a few of our favourite things:

Minchinhampton Common: 

A vast expanse of green, green common land that’s managed by The National Trust and home to all sorts of wildlife. Not only does it have the most amazing view across both valleys either side, it also has three pubs and an ice cream factory, Winstones. Oh, and the best thing about the common is the hundreds of curious cows that graze the land over the summer; they roam freely around the village of Minchinhampton, on the grass, in the road, on driveways, it’s very entertaining!

Stroud Farmers Market: 

A bustling market held every Saturday on the cobbled streets of Stroud; it draws locals and visitors from all over, with an impressive and varied range of stalls where you are spoilt for choice with food vendors selling local fresh meat, veg or artisan makers selling chutneys, wine and cheese.

Malt House Emporium: 

It’s very easy to lose an afternoon in this exquisite emporium of vintage, collectables, antiques, and pre-loved items. A two storey Victorian building, with over 100 dealers and many unique pieces, it’s the perfect place to explore. They have recently renovated the space next door and opened up a cafe. The building itself is seriously impressive, floor to ceiling windows, exposed brick walls and interior piping, but most importantly they have great coffee. When we take our friends here, they always fail to come home empty handed!

Ash-down Airfield: 

For the more adventurous, why not try gliding? Beginner day courses are available at the airfield to give you a taster at flying. We think the views are incredible!

Painswick Rococo Gardens:

This garden was created to be the backdrop for decadent parties where the owner would entertain his guests at fanciful buildings, inside the maze and through the woodland. Today, it provides a magical setting for outdoor theatre performances and has a series of summer events, as well as being open for general garden tours.

Chalford: 

Idyllic and quaint village that seems to be a hub for artists, writers and creatives alike; with the most famous resident being Damien Hirst. I would recommend taking a walk along the Cotswold waterways, a disused canal with a much used tow-path, it takes you on a journey of local history which is deeply routed in the textile industry, revealing former mills and factories to passers by. There’s something very calming and tranquil about this place that clearly inspires creativity.

Food and Drink:

The Bell, Sapperton: Award winning, superb food.

Lavender Bakehouse, Chalford: Delicious breakfast spot.

Jolly Nice, Frampton Mansell: Old petrol station that has been converted into a farm shop, cafe and deli.

Asparagasm, Nailsworth: Vegan fine dining with great guest chefs and themed evenings

Ragged Cot and The Shed: The former does a great sunday roast with the latter specialising in light lunches and cakes, both next door to one another.

Winstones: Ice cream parlour, all made in the factory in Minchinhampton

Further afield:

Bath: Home to the roman spa, the bath bun and famous Georgian architecture. Only a short drive away.

Sudeley Castle: Tudor castle, mentioned in the novel Wolf Hall.

Bibury: Quintessentially picturesque Cotswold village.

Do get in touch to book your glamping adventure; come and soak up the charm of the Cotswolds.
