Guest access
Summerfield Cottage is set in a private valley on the Owlpen estate, with its 900 year-history and romance, in the most picturesque part of the Cotswolds.
2 hours west of London.
Miles of private walks in meadows, hills, valley and woodlands.
Access to medieval landscaped gardens and orchards of the Manor House.

Other things to note
Even though Summerfield is designed for two, you are welcome to bring a child or baby with you and we can provide a travel cot or camp bed. There are lots of things for little explorers to do on the estate, whether it's building dens in the woods, meeting the farm animals or playing in the carefully tended gardens. We can provide additional accessories on request to help with your stay and limit the amount of child equipment you have to bring, such as toys, books, children's cutlery and dinnerware, and changing matts.

Location

Owlpen, England, United Kingdom

The Cotswolds are one of England's best known touring regions of picturesque hills, limestone villages and scenic attractions. The magical deep wooded valleys here form its most spectacular scenery.

The Owlpen valley has long been recognised as one of the most romantic places in England and provides guests with an exclusive and relaxing hideaway, surrounded by private woods and hills and many miles of walks--from a gentle stroll round the estate trails to a 20 mile trek along the Cotswold Way.

This is Laure Lee country, situated in the Royal Triangle in the heart of the Cotswolds hills. The historic cities of Bath, Cheltenham and Cirencester are all within an easy drive, as are the cultural and scenic attractions of Oxford, Blenheim and Stratford Upon Avon, which are popular day excursions. An ideal base for the Horse Trials at Badminton and Gatcombe Park and racing at Cheltenham.

Newark Park (National Trust) and Woodchester Mansion are three miles away, as well as many historic houses, including Berkeley Castle, Chavenage House and Sudeley Castle. The choice of attractions and things to see and do is huge and you will want to return to see and explore it all.

Extra details
Golf, gliding, riding, antique shops, historic houses, castles and gardens nearby.
But many visitors never leave the privacy of the Owlpen estate, with its miles of footpaths and 800-years of history.
