At approximately 25 minutes from J13 or J11a on the M5 motorway and at around an hour from Oxford, Farm View House offers easy access to local towns such as Stroud (5miles) Gloucester (9m) and Cheltenham (10m) plus to many lovely villages in the surrounding area.

If you are a real ale fan, you will be spoilt for choice in the local pubs such as the Woolpack Inn at Slad with its connection to Laurie Lee, The Butcher’s Arms at Sheepscombe and The Royal Oak in Painswick. These pubs serve locally produced food and are within a walking distance of around 20 – 30 minutes walk.
