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.

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 really nice house and value for money.....

  • Submitted: Jan 21, 0021
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
......on the edge of the popular Cotswold attractions. Having the M5 so close but so unobtrusive makes access to elsewhere quick and easy. In fact Haresfield is ma little gem secreted away in the location it is in.
The Beacon and Railway Hotel, an exhausting one minute walk from the front door is a pub that the village should rightfully be proud of - no fewer than 7 real ales on hand-pump on the numerous nights we visited. Oh yes.... they do food too. It must surely make the Good Beer Guide 2015?
Beautiful walks and views locally, particularly from the Shortwood topography (Haresfield Beacon)
The only slight negative thing I have to say (and it really isn't too much of one) I didn't quite understand the layout of the master bedroom and bathroom and dressing room with regards it working best for people when staying. the bathroom is open plan within the dressing room and therefor does not provide much privacy. That said, a great stay, great house. nice people, lovely location and last but not least a great pub!

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!!
