Wake up and smell the vines
The Cotswolds has to be one of the most magical places in the UK. Quintessentially English countryside, this is the home of rolling hills, medieval villages and stately homes sun-kissed in golden stone.
Waking up surrounded by vineyards is always a treat, made even more special from the comfort of the beautifully designed guest rooms and houses at Woodchester Valley.
Guests can choose from three types of accommodation, there’s the Luxury Vineyard split level rooms (ideal for a couple, these have a living room and small kitchenette, with a large bedroom upstairs, a well-equipped bathroom and views across the vines and valley). For slightly larger groups and guests travelling with dogs, there’s accommodation for up to four guests at the Retreat, a traditional stone farmhouse. And if you’re looking for a vineyard home to enjoy for a few days or more, there’s Woodchester Valley House, a beautifully designed, modern (and exceptionally large) Cotswold house which can sleep up to 12 guests (including dogs).
What each space has in common is style and comfort, with log burners, underfloor heating and special surprises like fluffy dressing gowns and complimentary milk, orange and yoghurt in the fridge, alongside outdoor terraces and well, we’ve already mentioned the views. And to accompany an aperitif, guests can order a hamper of Cotswold cheeses and charcuterie, perfect for a light lunch or to enjoy by your fireplace.
Best of all, the Retreat and Woodchester Valley House have large state of the art kitchens, designed for entertaining (cooking nirvana for a budding chef).
There’s of course plenty of wine in the fridges to purchase and the Continental breakfast is highly recommended (locally produced, low mileage super fresh bread and pastries, what more do you need?)
The welcoming team from Woodchester Valley are happy to help with special occasions and surprises, whether that be flowers, a perfectly timed cake or a sparkling wine chilled and waiting for your arrival.
This is a peaceful sanctuary where a tranquil life amongst the vines permeates and resides in you long after you’ve departed.
