About Beehive Cottage

Beehive Cottage dates from the 17th century and still retains some original features. It was restored in 1999 and has since then become a popular holiday retreat for two, set in idyllic countryside. It is situated less than five miles from Gloucester in a location which is ideal for touring in every direction. Dogs are very welcome at Beehive Cottage and guests are personally greeted by the owner, who lives in the adjacent house.

Ideally positioned, this comfortable cottage is an ideal base from which to explore Gloucestershire, the Cotswolds, Forest of Dean, Herefordshire, the Welsh Borders, the Malvern Hills and the Severn and Wye valleys, with their multitude of attractions. Surrounded by beautiful countryside, there are many country walks from the front door and the entire area is steeped in history with castles, stately homes and gardens to visit, along with plenty of wildlife locations, retail therapy and superb scenery all around.

Hartpury village has two public houses, along with a post office, newsagent, shop and dairy for stocking up on provisions. For larger shops, Tesco and Sainsbury supermarkets are only five miles away in Gloucester. Also within easy driving distance are the towns of Cheltenham, Stroud, Malvern, Ledbury, Tewkesbury and Ross on Wye; along with Hereford, Worcester, the Roman City of Bath, Monmouth, Bristol and Stratford-upon-Avon a little further afield.

With so many wonderful places to visit and great walking locally, Beehive Cottage is a comfortable retreat at any time of the year.

Please note the cottage is closed from the end of Oct to the beginning of March.
