Penrith Lodge sleeps five in three bedrooms and is ideally placed just two miles from the Gloucestershire market town of Stroud in the small hamlet of Brimscombe. Perfectly placed for visiting the many attractions of the Cotswolds, Cirencester is just a twenty minute drive away and the glorious Roman City of Bath under an hour.
The beautiful Cotswolds Commons (managed by National Trust) are just a twenty minute drive and offer some of the finest views in the country, taking in the endless landscape of the Cotswolds as well as the Severn Estuary and even Wales on a good day. Abundant with flora and fauna, cattle and horses graze freely over the common land. Dotted with picturesque villages such as Minchinhampton, Amberley and Box there are plenty of opportunities for fine dining in gastro pubs as well as real ale pubs on the commons. Winstone's Ice Cream Factory Shop near The Bear at Rodborough provides the perfect stop-over on a sunny day for a refreshing treat and panoramic views over the glorious undulating Golden Valley.
The Cotswolds offers a plethora of attractions for all ages and energy levels. Here are just a few that offer a unique Cotswolds experience from as close as the doorstep, to within a half hour drive: local canal restoration, history in the making; Bibury's beautiful Arlington Row that was quoted by William Morris as being the 'most beautiful village in the Cotswolds'; take a birds eye view of the area and a trial flight in a glider; Hetty Pegler's Tump, part of the Cotswold's Neolithic history; the natural phenomena that is the Severn Bore (certain times of the year) and so much more.
Penrith Lodge provides welcoming self-catering accommodation and is a perfect base for visits throughout the region including not only Bath, Cirencester and Gloucester, but also Regency Cheltenham, Oxford with its dreamy spires, the city of Bristol, Shakespeare's birthplace and Stratford-upon-Avon to name just a few. There are an abundance of places to visit and both historic and cultural activities including the National Westonbirt Arboretum and Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust. The area also offers impressive opportunities for shopping with designer outlets, world class cities and antiques, and gorgeous market towns with boutiques that put the fun back into shopping. This spectacular area has something for everyone.
