Things to do around Woodchester
The market towns nearby of Stroud, Nailsworth, Minchinhampton, Tetbury and Cirencester are all within easy reach.
Stroud has a fabulous farmers' market on a Saturday, its own brewery plus the splendid Museum in the Park. Nailsworth is home to a number of local artisan businesses and offers plenty of fine cafes and restaurants. In addition, Nailsworth was recently named as one of Britain's 101 places to live in The Sunday Times, so is certainly worth a visit!
Tetbury has a host of antique shops, is home to HRH Prince Charles and the National Arboretum at Westonbirt is but a stone's throw away. Cirencester has a weekly market, a beautiful abbey, a polo ground and the Roman Museum. The villages and hamlets that fill the valleys in between are filled with delightful Cotswold stone cottages and of course, welcoming village pubs!
