ELEGANCE & COMFORT
IN THE HEART
Sherborne House is a building steeped in history dating back to the 17th Century. Beautifully maintained and today with stunning grounds, an indoor pool plus a tennis court, it is very much a piece of history deep in the Cotswolds. The village within which the Manor sits is largely owned by the National Trust - the cottages and buildings are classic Cotswolds in every respect, with little modern architecture anywhere. The village shop and tea room is a hive of activity and is well worth a visit.
More recently Sherborne has become the home to Spring Watch, the BBC's TV programme which is filmed in a secret location on the Sherborne National Trust estate!
As you would expect there are some of the Cotswolds' best walks in this area, some of which take you along the River Windrush - a truly picturesque spot. The villages that lead along the Windrush Valley are similarly stunning including Windrush (creatively named!), Great and Little Barrington and Farmington in the other direction.
Northleach, which is approx 5 miles away has a small selection of shops, but does have one of the best pubs in the whole of the Cotswolds - The Wheatsheaf which is well worth a visit, but bring your credit card! Burford is approx 7 miles away with its selection of shops and pubs - equally desirable.
There are a host of beautiful villages nearby and similarly local attractions - all of which should keep you busy and occupied.
