Westley Farm (Cotswolds)

Westley Farm Cotswolds Hill Farm

Choose a self-catering holiday cottage on a quiet old-fashioned Cotswold hill farm near Chalford in Gloucestershire. The Cotswolds are classified as "an area of outstanding natural beauty" and offer a rich tapestry of green rolling hills studded with picture-postcard villages.
Westley Farm is an 80 acre hill farm where wild woods, banks of cowslips and orchids are rated of equal importance to the raising of cattle and sheep. Our traditional stone cottages are spread over the farm and have rural views as good as any in England. You can just hear the distant bells of Oakridge church and see the houses peep out of the canopy of trees on the other side of the valley. The unique village of Chalford is a mile away with its jumble of mellow cottages scattered down the hillside entwined with tortuous lanes and donkey tracks. Cirencester and Stroud are fifteen minutes drive while Gloucester, Cheltenham, Bristol and Bath can be reached within an hour.
The farm is bounded by an old canal built in 1785 and is the starting point for many varied local walks. Each cottage has a log fire and access to telephone and washing machine. Dogs are welcome.There are a surprising number of local pubs and restaurants with menus ranging from 'cordon bleu' to 'bangers & mash'.
For many years badgers have come every evening to two of the cottages and expect to be fed.
