Woodwells Cottage, rated 4 stars by the English Tourist Board, is as perfect example of peace, tranquility and picturesque surroundings as any cottage either in Owlpen or anywhere else in The Cotswolds. This detached house, is set on the edge of a small woods, surrounded by the beautiful countryside off a small country lane - this is is a real cottage hideaway! The house which is a traditional Cotswold style with good size rooms (rather than open plan) which give it a sense 'swallows-and-amazons'! We say this is as remote as you can get from the twenty first century in Southern England! Woodwells is a picturesque farmhouse built in 1877, set in the midst of a sunny clearing of wooded hills and at the end of the meadows. The house is utterly charming and an ideal family holiday home or place for friends to get together.

OWLPEN and its environs have long been recognised as one of England's most romantic spots, described by Prince Charles as the 'epitome of an English village.' The Tudor manor (1450-1616) today stands within a formal garden of magnificent yews and at the centre of a clutch of medieval and traditional buildings, many of which are now converted as quite exceptional Cotswold holiday cottages. The whole estate, steeped in a thousand years of history, forms its own remote and picturesque wooded valley under the edge of the Cotswold hills in the south-west of England.
Uley village, approximately 20 mins walk away, is a thriving village, located in the south west Cotswolds hills, within 5 miles of Nailsworth and Stroud and about 8 miles to the west of Tetbury - famous for its connections with Prince Charles and Royalty. The village provides for all of your basic needs including a shop and couple of pubs - one of which is on the lane leading from Owlpen to Uley.
Today the Tudor Manor House, Owlpen Manor (1450-1616), stands within a formal garden of magnificent yews and at the centre of a clutch of beautiful medieval and traditional buildings, many of which have been recently converted into exceptional Cotswold holiday cottages. The whole estate, steeped in a thousand years of history, forms its own remote and picturesque wooded valley under the edge of the Cotswold hills in the south-west of England.
Beyond the local area, there are many great places to visit, all within an easy and relatively short drive. Nailsworth, with its highly regarded Farmer's Market and plethora of quirky shops is less than 10mins drive, while Tetbury and Cirencester are no more than 20 mins drive away. Both of these latter are decribed as towns, although the former is more a 'big village' but with some excellent shops, and restaurants and excpetional selection of antique shops (for which it is well known). Bath and its superb reputation is about 35 mins drive away and well worth a day trip if you fancy taking in some of the country's best shop, restaurants not to mention stunning architecture.
