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.
