For visitors wishing to explore this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty by car, cycle or walking, we are perfectly located. Cirencester is on national cycle network routes and walking trails, and we have we have lockable cycle stores allocated on a first come, first serve basis. If it's an activity holiday you're after, Cotswold Water Park is right around the corner with water skiing, sailing and a beach.

Looking for something a bit more leisurely? The Cotswolds has an enormous amount on offer. If you love heritage, there is an abundance of wonderful stately homes, manor houses, churches and museums to visit nearby. Or why not book a craft workshop for you and a few friends at New Brewery Arts and make a weekend of it? Go home with something you’ve made and a new skill.
