For quality bed & breakfast close to Westonbirt see:


If you plan to stay overnight near Westonbirt, then I am happy to recommend the following:

http://www.carriersfarm.co.uk/ Located on the edge of Sherston, just a few miles from Westonbirt. Having stayed there earlier this year with my wife I can thoroughly recommend this as a delightful, tastefully and beautifully decorated and equipped room. The breakfast is wondeful with home prepared food, the rooms are very inviting and comfortable and a delightful setting enhanced by charming hosts.


As an alternative in Tetbury have a look at www.number65.co.uk I have not stayed overnight, but if the hospitality and Sunday lunch is anythng to go by it is not to be missed.

Also, do take a look at www.forgehousekemble.co.uk for self catering cottages. Beautifully prepared and maintained with every luxury you would want. Just a few miles from Westonbirt and in the heart of the Cotswolds.

Also take a look at http://www.newbreweryarts.org.uk/stayatnewbreweryarts , for quality YHA style accommodation right in the centre of Cirencester. Good facilities and good prices.
