Brook House is the perfect base for walkers with easy access to the Cotswold Way. For birdwatchers, Slimbridge Wild Foul Trust is just 9 miles away. The beautiful regency spa town of Cheltenham is just 13 miles away and so this property proves to be a very convenient place to stay if visiting the Cheltenham Race Festivals or any of the music or literary festivals held in Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Gloucester is also approximately 8 miles away with it's magnificent cathedral and tomb of Edward 11, making Brook House an ideal place to stay if attending the 3 Choirs Festival, Gloucester also sports it's famous victorian docks.

Westonbirt Arboretum is approx. 20 miles away and is paticularily spectacular in autumn. There are many castles to visit including Sudeley (21 miles) once home of Catherine Parr, containing Europe's largest collection of toys,arms and armour. Berkeley( 13 miles) owned by the Berkeleys since the 12th century and who are still in residence, Berkeley castle holds many outdoor concerts in the summer - take your champers and your picnic basket and enjoy the music!

Excellent shopping at Bristol(30 miles) ,Cheltenham and the beautiful Geogian city of Bath (43 miles).

Support the 'cherry and whites' at the Gloucester Rugby Club located at the famous Kingsholm grounds.

Royal Gloucestershire is brimming with beautiful scenic views, walks and National Trust properties. along with the regency town (actually city now) of Cheltenham and the Georgian city of Bath there are market towns including Cirencester and Tetbury, all fabulous places to lunch or dine, who knows you may bump into a Royal!

The whole of the cotswolds, Stow-on-the-wold (32 miles), Bourton-on-water (29 miles), the Slaughters, are all in easy reach.

The beautiful Wye Valley, Symonds Yat, and Ross-on-Wye are close by and a visit to this area will certainly leave an impression on you.

Exploring this region at any time of the year is a rewarding experience, each season brings it's own beauty.

This is a fabulous house for family gatherings especially for Christmas and New Year but also great in the Spring and summer.

Stonehouse railway station is approximately 4 miles away - there is a direct line to London Paddington which takes 1 hour and 40 mins making a day visit to London for shopping or a matinee show a viable option.

The house is a prominent property in the centre of the village, the village road is a no through road with the Beacon Hotel and pub situated at the end. the pub offers bed and breakfast which is useful if you need extra accomodation for visiting guests. A railway line does run through the village with a foot crossing at the same end as the pub.

A Perfect place...

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at Brook House for 2 nights, and it was just perfect for us! We had a great time, going to Cheltenham one night, then all sitting down around the lovely dining room for a gorgeous chef-cooked meal the next, followed by a fun-packed night in the recently refurbished local! The weather was nice so we were able to enjoy the garden, and we soon got used to the trains! A lovely, well-furnished house. Thank you!!

Excellent holiday house

  • 5 of 5
We have enjoyed an excellent holiday in Brook House! The house has all that one needs; it surely exceeded our expectations. It was also very neat, cozy, well decorated, quiet and relaxing: so an ideal holiday destination! We also enjoyed very much the Gloucester and Cotswold area. And we appreciated the warm welcome by Jenny! Thanks a lot.

Fantastic Acommodation

  • 5 of 5
Not knowing what we would find, we were very surprised to find the house well prepared for what we required. Spacious accommodation both inside and out. Very helpful owners both overseas and in the UK. although the weather wasn't in our favour, we still found the location very handy for the Cotswold's. We had family visiting from Australia and they were extremely happy with the house and were sad to leave. We would happily recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit the area.

Beautiful, fully equipped cottage.

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed in Brook Cottage for a long weekend this February. The cottage was fantastic and equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. Finishing touches and extras were plentiful as was the warm welcome that we received.
The only negative thing I could possibly say about this cottage is that the photos simply do not do it justice.

Haresfield Village is situated in South Gloucestershire, the village lies at the foot of Haresfield Beaon a National Trust site on the Cotswold escarpment with spectacular views. It's a site of a Romano-British hill fort. adjoining is Standish Wood, a typical Cotswold escarpment with mixed beech woodland. Standing on Haresfield Mount on a good day, one can see as far as the Welsh mountains and the Malverns, framing these views is the River Severn. The area is renowned for its outstanding beauty with rolling hills and pretty Cotswold villages and towns. Brook House provides the perfect base to explore the country side and villages of the Cotswold's, to name but a few; Bibury, Broadway, Chipping Camden, Stow-on-the-Wold, Upper/ Lower Slaughters and Morton-on-the-Marsh.

Haresfield is close to Gatcombe Park, Highgrove and the Roman town of Cirencester.

The nearest town of Stroud is known as the seven valleys, and the picturesque hamlets set in the hillsides and in the valleys are breathtaking. Painswick, with its famous church with 99 yews planted in the grounds is not to be missed; afternoon tea in Painswick is a must.

Cheltenham is just 12 miles away, where you can enjoy the Cheltenham National Hunt festival. Cheltenham is brimming with culture and various literary, film and music festivals taking place throughout the summer. It is also great for shopping, with individual boutiques, antique shops, cafes and bars a plenty. It also has an extremely good theatre which has recently been refurbished.

When you have had enough of towns and shopping take yourselves to Westonbirt Arboretum and get back to nature, it's a stunning place. The forest of Dean which is about 27 miles away also gives one a sense of getting away from it all. And of course a visit to Slimbridge Wild Foul Trust founded by Sir Peter Scott is a rewarding day out.

If it's sea and sand you want Weston-super-Mare, a Victorian seaside town where the pier has just been rebuilt after being destroyed by fire a few years ago is just one hours drive away. Weston has an old fashioned charm, which will endear you to it.

Maybe you want a little action - water ski-ing, wind surfing or sailing, if so the Cotswold Water Park at Cirencester with its 15000 acres of lakes is the place to go. Horse riding, paint balling and go-carting are readily available close by.

Whatever happens you will not be bored!!
