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...s where the badgers live and the owls swoop. The view of the Golden Valley and the little village of Oakridge is idyllic.
"You are close to so much here, yet feel blissfully tucked away. Stroll down to the canal, look for rare orchids, watch buzzards soar high above; only the whistle of the occasional steam train disturbs the peace. This is the sort of place Laurie Lee would have felt completely at home in." (excerpt from Sawday's Special Places review)
We are well placed for exploring the lesser-known areas of the southern Cotswolds on foot or by car, with several pubs within walking distance. The picture postcard villages of Minchinhampton, Bisley and Sapperton are all 3 miles away. Approx 6 miles from Stroud.
For those wishing to be car-free, we offer a pick up service from the local stations and cn arrange bike hire.
There's nearly always something going on at Westley Farm. It's up to you to choose whether to join in with one of our courses, like a days forraging for example, or just relax in your own piece of the Cotswold countryside.Read more

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).
