An old-fashioned Cotswold hill farm where concern for the wild environment combines comfortably with raising cattle and sheep. There are spectacular views over the well-wooded Golden Valley. Cottages are regularly visited by badgers, who expect to be fed, and by foxes and an occasional deer. The farm is bounded by an old canal which is the starting point for a variety of spectacular walks. Within a few minutes drive are a dozen picture postcard villages like Sapperton, Bisley and Minchinhampton. Cirencester and Stroud are both six miles away.

Cockshutt is one of five cottages on the farm and has one double and one twin bedroom. A starter pack containing home made cake, a pint of local organic milk, fair trade sugar, tea and coffee will greet you on your arrival. There is a choice of feather or synthetic pillows and duvets. A communal washing machine and tumble drier are available for your washing needs. Electricity is paid for in advance by coin meter taking £1 coins.The kitchen has a bread and pizza oven if you feel like trying your hand at making your own. Linen, towels and cots can be hired and logs for the fire can be purchased.

On the same farm but scattered around so you have your privacy are Tullet, The Loft, Hornstone and Jackdaw cottages.

Dogs are welcome provided they do not chase livestock. There is a charge.
