Availing of my National Trust membership i was looking to explore places of which i have never visited before. This was a real treat! Driving off the beaten track amid glorious March sunshine and scenic valleys before i reached my destination....was my first adventure!
A recent £3million refurbishment after major redevelopment was clearly noticeable.Visitors can view the stunning Roman mosaics from the new walkway building. Mini ipad-like technology with headphones really enhance knowledge of the villa.
There is a little coffee shop with sandwiches, soup & cakes. If you wanted something more substantial a drive into nearby Cirencester for a pub lunch added to the day. A stroll around the nice town would certainly bring you back for a return visit. Well worth a look!

The new visitor centre to allow views of the mosaics from above will be amazing. What could be seen was interesting and the staff were very informative. This will be an excellent place to visit when it reopens. I am already looking forward to it.

Cheworth Roman Villa ruins are worth a visit if you are interested in ancient history. Everything is labeled and we were fortunate enough to have an on-site volunteer guide to interpret some of the buildings for us as well. There are massive renovations happening at the moment, (Sept. '11) and when they are complete it will be a 'not to be missed' site. There is a small museum, a shop (of course), an activities tent for children and a refreshment tent as well.

We went here as a family, and I was charged as a full adult, no discount for being in a wheelchair. I was expecting the nature of the site to make access difficult, but I did feel that the parts that had been put up to aid viewing could at least have had ramps - but no, wooden platforms with steps up - there is absolutely no excuse for that. The only ramp was the one to the tea shop, so I could spend more money while waiting for the kids!

It was not worth the entrance fee for the children either, the ruins are not explained properly or put in context. If the kids are doing the Romans at school, take them a little further to Bath, a much better educational experience!

Chedworth Roman Villa - The remains of one of the largest Romano-British villas in the country is a great historic break from Manor houses, gardens and cathedrals. It gives great insight to Roman culture in Britian outside of the more famous Bath and Central London sites. About 1 1/2 hours from Bristol. Allow 2 hours for an indepth visit.
PS. You must have a car and it seems you'll NEVER get there as it's not on any main road.
