Description from the owner
Westley Farm, an old fashioned Cotswold small holding, has breathtaking views over the Golden Valley. Five traditional Cotswold stone cottages are scattered amongst flower-rich meadows between steep banks of ancient woodland. Being more of a nature reserve than a working farm, you may see badgers, foxes, owls and buzzards on your walks or even one of the rare butterflies that breed on the farm.
Our award winning cottages are traditionally built of Cotswold stone with flagstone floors and log fires, furnished simply but generously. Children and dogs are welcome. Jackdaw cottage lies at the end of a gravel track with its back to the wood...Read more

Stroud, Heart of England, England
Additional Location Information
Westley Farm lies at the heart of the Cotswolds, an area famous for its rolling sheep grazed hills and dry stone walls, and lies half way between Stroud and Cirencester on the A419. Cirencester, the Roman town of Corinium, is the ancient regional capital and now boasts a wealth of independent boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Stroud is home to one of the best farmers markets in the country and is a centre for all things alternative.
Westley Farm is only 1/2 hour drive from M5 or M4 motorways. Take the Swindon road from Junction 15 on the M4 or the Stroud road from Junction 13 on the M5.
Car Free Travel:
We offer pick-up service from Kemble or Stroud train stations but as we are fairly remote with poor bus service we recommend you bring bicycles or hire them.
Our private drive is half a mile long ensuring a safe environment for children and pets.
The easiest way to access the drive is through the layby on the Cirencester side of the roundabout. Our other entrance is rather steep and comes directly after a bend (when coming form Cirencester).

What Past Guests Are Saying
A beautiful, magical place.
We visited in april for a particularly typical april weekend. Gorgeous sun, quickly followed by torrential downfalls. But this just made the yurt more inviting and snuggly. Our log burner roared for the entire weekend and only once when I forgot to add logs during the night did it get a little cold. The view from Lillyhorn down into the valley was beautiful and the wildlife and the serenity of the woods around us, really were magical. We took some lovely walks through the valleys, found some great pubs and local produce to cook back at the yurt kitchen. The workmanship on the yurts, the decks, the kitchens, the composting toilets and even the cute steps down into the glades is excellent. Graham and Blue have done so well in building these yurts and making them and their surroundings so perfect. They are lovely people too, Graham happily picked us up and delivered us back to Kemble station, and even gave us welcoming cake and tea! I would stay again and again, and we really found it upsetting to have to leave. I will definitely be coming back. If you're looking for an alternative break, where you are at one the environment and not impacting on it, this is the place to go. Thank you for an unforgettable experience.
Hearty cottage in the southern part of the Cotswolds
With snow setting in for our long weekend here, the wood fire was roaring and much enjoyed. There are all the essential things in the kitchen (some more wine glasses wouldn't go astray) so ideal for self-catering. I was concerned that it would be cold, but with some friendly advice from the owner about how to 'feed' the machine meant the heating ticked along just fine. A make-shift door snake also helped keep the cottage warm. The shower was greatly enjoyed with a bath too. Reasonable rates, and with other cottages within close walking distance too. Highly recommend the local The Bell at Sapperton.
Excellent stay and facilities
We were a party of 5 including 3 seniors, and found the location ideal for a tour of the Cotswolds and surrounding Cities. The facilities were great, and the friendliness of the owners was of the first order. Two of us had The Loft, and that had its own facilities including a balcony with table and chairs. The other 3 had a self-contained apartment again with all the facilities. We would all recommend this accommodation as ideal for families, with or without children, who needed a base which they looked forward to after a long day's outing. The fields around held sheep and lambs (it was May) and cattle. and the property overlooked the valley towards Chalford.
