We stayed for 1 night while visiting Westonbirt Arboretum and Slimbridge Wetland Reserve as part of a mini "mystery tour" in the area. Waterend Farm is very well located for both, particularly Slimbridge which is just minutes away.
Hilary made us very welcome - the room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. A huge choice of breakfast options was much appreciated, although I couldn't resist the traditional full English once I spotted the black pudding on the menu.
The house is very close to the motorway, but it didn't detract from the rural setting or disturb us at all.
There's a choice of (driveable) local pubs and restaurants.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Waterend Farm is a working sheep farm in the Severn Valley, on the edge of the Cotswolds. Guests are very welcome to explore the farm with us and to meet our sheep and Shetland ponies. Bedrooms are spacious, traditionally furnished and are all en-suite. Delicious home cooked breakfasts, made using local produce, are served in the beamed dining room. The farm is conveniently situated close to the M5, between junctions 13 and 14, and has a local railway station. There is ample on site car parking. Nearby there is plenty to see and do - Berkeley Castle, Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust, Woodchester Mansion, Westonbirt Arboretum, Badminton Horse trials and much more. ... more less
