If you ever want to feel you are in a movie - go to Woodchester! The whole place feels like a film set, and is tucked away down a very long track. Not surprised to learn that Dracula films have been made here, and there...More

Lovely walk down to this house through woodland on a good path (Note for those not so fit, it’s quite long) . The house is magnificent with fine details. The volunteers who have restored it have done so very sympathetically and have uncovered many fine...More

Really beautiful place, not what you’d expect, but well worth a visit. We’ll sign posted, but drive slowly as you near the turning, the sign might be well hidden

We were just visiting Stroud for the day, and came here as a last minute change of plan because of the wet weather. We weren't disappointed. I have visited lots of furnished mansions and stately homes, and lots of ruined buildings. But this was unique...More

Woodchester mansion is not open often so check the website. It is well worth a visit when open. You can explore four floors and see the craftsmanship of stonemasons of the day. The owners ran out of money and the house was never finished. It...More

The post code to woodchester mansion is GL10 3TS some satnavs don’t like the postcode and can take you down a narrow lane to a private road so the maps on your mobile phone maybe more accurate.
