Stow on the Wold, Stow on the Wold & surrounding area
Donnington House is a secret hideaway, yet within minutes of some of the Cotswolds most delightful towns and attractions.
Set over three floors this fabulous four bedroom family home has been completely renovated during 2011 to make the very best of the large spaces and original features found in this unique property. The setting and architecture of Old Brewery House and the buildings that surround it are quintessentially Cotswolds and utterly idyllic. Its location is unique, being right in the heart of Donnington Brewery, whose buildings date back as far as the 12th Century. In 1827 it was bought by Thomas Arkell, whose descendant Richard Arkell started a Brewery here in 1865. It remains a working brewery today and although running full time, has very little impact on the house or its occupants. Donnington Brewery is not open to the public and access to the brewery buildings is understandably prohibited. Beer, however, is available, should you desire it and you'll find links to chocolate box pretty Cotswolds inns that are supplied by Donnington Brewery in Local Knowledge.
