Our rural Gloucestershire locale provides panoramic views looking towards the Cotswold Edge, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, and unlike many other sites, we are open all year around.
See below for just a few ideas of where to go during your stay...
The Old Fox, Coaley
A traditional village pub in the heart of nearby Coaley, where you will find quality food and drink with good ‘old fashioned’ hospitality. This lovely pub has a wide range of cask ales on offer, from both local and regional independent brewers, alongside freshly cooked food with menus designed around seasonal produce, sourced within glorious Gloucestershire.
The Old Badger Inn, Eastington
Just a short 2-minute drive from Apple Tree Park, The Old Badger is a traditional English Freehouse, serving a selection of real ales and a quality homemade menu, both lunchtime and evening.
The Whitminster Inn
A family business situated less than 10-minutes' drive from Apple Tree Park. The Whitminster Inn provides a fine service, quality entertainment and a diverse choice of lovely food. The pub offers locals and visitors a taste of the world from the centre of the Cotswolds, with truly scrumptious English, Chinese and Indian food all under one roof.
The City of Gloucester
Gloucester is famed for its cathedral, but other local attractions include rugby at Kingsholm, the docks & tall ships, the museum and its association with Beatrix Potter.
Situated at the meeting point of the Five Valleys, the town is noted for its steep streets, independent spirit and café culture. The Cotswold Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounds the town. The award winning farmer's market is too good to miss.
Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust, Slimbridge
Many water birds live there all year round, and others are migrants on their ways to and from their summer breeding grounds and others overwinter. Open to the public throughout the year, visitors can examine the collections, view birds from hides and observatories and take part in educational activities.
Westonbirt, The National Arboretum is managed by the Forestry Commission. Westonbirt Arboretum is located near the historic market town of Tetbury in Gloucestershire, England, and is perhaps the most important and widely known arboretum in the United Kingdom.
The castle's origins date back to the 11th century and it has been designated by English Heritage as a grade I listed building. The castle has remained within the Berkeley family since they reconstructed it in the 12th century, except for a period of royal ownership by the Tudors. It is traditionally believed to be the scene of the murder of King Edward II in 1327.
Rolling hills and grassland harbour numerous thatched medieval villages, churches and stately homes built of the distinctive local yellow limestone. The 102-mile Cotswold Way walking trail follows the Cotswold Edge escarpment.
