Bed and Breakfast at FURNERS FARM in the Slad Valley
Nestling on the hillside overlooking the village of Slad, made famous by the writer Laurie Lee’s idyllic account of growing up in the Cotswold countryside, is the old cider farm described in “Cider with Rosie”. Furners Farm is now the home of Julie and Simon Cooper, who run an organic smallholding and invite visitors to share the peaceful setting and explore the many attractions of this lovely valley.
This is a particularly beautiful part of the Cotswolds, well off the beaten track, and approached along a twisting single track lane, and yet the town of Stroud, with its craft shops and farmers’ market, is only a mile or so away, and the famous Woolpack Inn, Laurie Lee’s local pub, is a 20 minute walk away across the fields.
The author Susan Hill has described the Slad Valley as her “favourite spot in the Cotswolds” in her book “Spirit of the Cotswolds”, and with its outstanding views and abundant wildlife it is waiting to enchant you.
The guest accommodation at Furners Farm is in a separate cottage with its own entrance on the ground floor (the first floor of the cottage is let separately).
The spacious bedroom may be made up as a king-sized double room or twin bedded room as required (6’ bed or twin 3’ beds). It is comfortably furnished with traditional and antique furnishings, with a separate en suite bathroom. Regrettably, there is inadequate space for a child’s bed or cot.
The bedroom opens directly onto the garden, with views beyond across the valley. The only sounds you will hear in the early morning will be the songbirds’ dawn chorus, and perhaps the bleating of the rare breed Soay sheep in the paddock.
Breakfast is served in the main house, either in the garden room, or on the adjoining terrace in the summer, with stunning views down the valley.
Prices:- £40 per person per night double occupancy, and £45 single occupancy
