The hamlet of Notgrove lies on the top of the Cotswolds in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Mentioned in the Doomsday Book, the Notgrove Estate is now a family farm of around 1500 acres. Set in some spectacular countryside it includes 400 acres of unspoilt pasture mostly in steep sided dry valleys, interspersed with mixed woodland copses. There are around 30 Cotswold stone cottages in the quiet and picturesque village, which is typical of the area. There are many, many miles of walks to be enjoyed across the estate, maps are provided in the cottages, which allow you to take in some of the most breathtaking views.
Nearby is Bourton on the Water ("The Venice of the Cotswolds") which has a number of attractions and remains a popular place to visit when staying in the Cotswolds. Northleach is also closeby, which includes one of the Cotswolds' finest gastro pubs The Wheatsheaf. About 15 mins drive away are the popular villages of Stow on the Wold and Burford, with their collection of pubs, restaurants and shops.
Cheltenham in particular is close by, while Oxford is no more than 40 mins drive also.
"Extremely well equipped cottage in beautiful location and with plenty for the kids to do."Mrs Hamilton 2017-10-12
"Hazelnut barn we stayed in was was well laid out and met our every need and with the added bonus of the animals near us which made our grand children very happy. Mr Rodriguez, June 2017."Rodriguez 2017-06-08
"Waking up the next morning and finding the most beautiful country setting was absolutely delightful! We couldn't believe our luck to have found such a wonderful holiday location at such short notice. The on site staff couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming ensuring that our 4 children were invited to join them that morning on the animal feeding rounds. The farm is safe and secure and the kids biked and ran around and explored and played all week and only came back to the barn to refuel when they could smell the BBQ! The week continued and everyday was better than the last. I highly recommend Notgrove for a fantastic week away in the Cotswolds - we would LOVE to return next summer! ” "Ms Poulton 2016-07-29
