The Local Area

Our cottage is set within the small village of Beckford in the North Cotswolds, with direct access onto Bredon Hill, the Cotswolds' largest outlier which has endless walking, mountain biking and other opportunities. Beckford has a shop with deli and post office, a children’s playground and a church. A floodlit tennis club — day membership can be arranged, a pub/restaurant and even its very own nature reserve, complete with wild ducks/geese/swans and much more.

Pampering & Retail Therapy

The bistros and boutiques of Broadway and Cheltenham are within 10/20 minutes, whilst famously pretty gastro pub and antique filled villages of Stow-on-the-Wold and Chipping Camden are also within a short drive. Of course the Cheltenham Gold Cup and other horse racing fixtures throughout the year are a major attraction.

Don’t miss a trip to Daylesford organics, complete with Spa, famous with the Chelsea set and just 20 minutes away — you can stock up on organic goodies and have lunch in the cafe or outdoors on the terrace. You could try the award winning Cowley Manor C-Side Spa which is also a 20 minute drive away and now offers day spa packages.

For entertaining younger members of the family, Toddington Steam railway is just 5 minutes away. Another family favourite is the Cotswold Farm Park with a selection of farm animals and indoor activities including a lovely “Touch Barn” and play barn with electric and pedal power mini tractors. You could also visit the nearby Domestic Fowl Trust where you can feed chickens and ducks as well as enjoying the toddler friendly in and outdoor play areas, including a soft play zone. There is also a shop selling nice wooden toys alongside all sorts of chicken memorabilia and a tea room.
