Stroud is a district mixed of the Cotswolds and the Vale of Berkeley, an area of the flat, fertile valley of the River Severn. In the southern part of the area, you will find some market towns such as Dursley and Wotton-under-Edge. The largest town is the one the district has been named after, which is Stroud.
Just 5 miles from ancient Gloucester and a short walk from the Severn estuary, you will find the peaceful sanctuary of Moor Farm. Once you arrive in the farm, you'll know you've left the hustle and bustle of everyday life behind. From your first glimpse of the century-old traditional orchard and herd of rare Gloucester cattle feeding on the Severn floodplain. Children will have a blast building dens or playing hide and seek in the copse where the tents are located. Older children might want to venture down to the canal (a 5-minute walk away) for some fishing and boating or try out the new cycle trail around the farm.
Moor Farm has a cosy communal area that makes it great for groups . Its large 'party' barn is perfect for larger festivities or weddings.
There is plenty of history to be explored as the area is rich in Iron Age and Roman remnants. Particularly of interest to archeologists due to the Neolithic burial grounds, of which there are over 100. Stroud owes its wealth on the cloth industry during the Victorian era, and its mills are now listed as buildings. Much of the landscape is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that offers many hiking (the esteemed Cotswold Way walk leads through the area) and cycling opportunities with breath-taking views.
