The fairy-tale Cotswold hamlet of Owlpen centres around a picturesque church, a Tudor manor house and nine holiday cottages, all in an equally picturesque valley with 215 acres of woodlands and farmland. The distinctive cottages are scattered along the valley, and several are listed historic buildings. There are snug medieval barns and byres, a watermill, a Court House from the 1620s, weavers' and keepers' cottages and even a modern farmhouse. 

Woodwells is a favourite with families and walkers (especially those with dogs). This fairy tale Cotswold stone farmhouse is approached up a long and sometimes bumpy private drive. It leads behind the church and manor house, past Manor Farm and Over Court cottages, into the heart of the beech woods. Surrounded by the steep hangers, off a drive, off a lane, off a minor road, buried in the bosom of the Cotswolds, here is a hideaway that must be about as remote as you can get from the twentieth century in southern England, yet with all the comforts of Owlpen's ever-popular cottages.

A farmstead at Woodwells is recorded in 1280. Today you will find, as if by chance, in a sunny clearing of the wooded hills which here rise steeply at the end of the meadows, a handsome farmhouse built in 1877.
