the coach house - doggy breaks

there is so much for you and your dogs to do locally...

The Old Coach House is located in a designated 'area of outstanding natural beauty', with a wealth of Cotswold villages, churches museums and country pubs.

Whatever time of year you visit there are breath-taking views and hidden valleys - great for touring, hill walking or shopping and antiquing.


The Toadsmoor Valley is wonderful walking country and there are lots of places within a few minutes where you can run free and come to no harm at all. The nearest of these is Toadsmoor Woods and round the lake to Bismore - dogs love paddling in the ford.

Five minutes away we have the canal towpathMinchinhampton & Rodborough Common (1000 acres of open grassland owned by the National Trust), Selsley Common and Penn WoodsPainswick BeaconHaresfield Beacon and Randwick Woods. All of these are owned by the National Trust and each extends to hundreds of acres. 

Within twenty minutes drive, we also have The Cotswold WayCam Long DownCrickley Hill Country ParkWestonbirt Arboretum, the Woodchester Park,  Blackstable Wood and Cranham Woods.

Within half an hour there is May HillCleeve Common and Leckhampton Hill & Charlton Kings Common. Newfies love the Cotswold Water ParkSlimbridge Wildfowl Trust, the Forest of Dean & Wye Valley beauty spots are all nearby and we are close to Badminton, Gatcombe and Cheltenham Race Course.

Finally, we are very lucky to have several really nice pubs a short drive away serving good food where you will not be forced to sit outside. At Bisley we have The Bear Inn and the Stirrup Cup, plus The Butcher's Arms at Oakridge, The Bell Inn at Sapperton, and our local, The Lamb at Eastcombe & The Crown at Frampton Mansell.
