Why we love it

Miles of unspoilt countryside walks, a Japanese plunge bath, wood burner and your morning coffee on a covered deck – does it get any better?


What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • Trotting about the enclosed field like they own it
  • Finding their dog bowl left for them
  • Joining you on days out in the many market towns nearby

Humans will love

  • Melting into the Japanese plunge bath
  • Cooking out on the firepit
  • A cup of coffee out on the deck with sunrise

The place

Sometimes, what you’re in need of is to get away from it all, and Buzzard’s Reach offers just that. You’ll find the cabin at the end of a fairy light trail, in its own elevated clearing in the heart of the Ebworth Valley and beech woods. Some places are all about relaxing in the interior, or the exterior, but here you’ll struggle to know which you like better. Inside, you’ll be kicking back with your partner at the dining table under upcycled Parisian streetlights or serving glasses of red to a deserving other half in the Japanese plunge bath. Outside, you’ll be moving from sipping steaming cups on the covered deck, to one of the three outside seating areas available to track the sun across the sky. That is, of course, if you’re not dragged out on one of the many walks available to you and your four-legged friend in the locale.

In the neighbourhood

  • This area of The Cotswolds is covered in strips of woodland that meander around the rolling patchwork fields. If you head barely a mile up the road to the north, you’ll find the Cotswold Commons and Beechwoods National Nature Reserve, which is an incredible morning or afternoon of strolls! Just be sure to keep your dog under control, as there can be livestock
  • It’s barely a 20-minute drive from here to Stroud, so take a day to explore! There are the award-winning farmer’s markets on Saturdays, as well as the Stroud Shambles Markets on Fridays and Saturdays. If you need a little pick me up, pop into Felt Café on Stroud’s offshoot, Brimscombe, where they welcome small humans and canine friends alike
  • Cheltenham is just a half-hour drive to the north, and well worth it. Renowned for its shopping, it’s quickly becoming an incredibly dog-friendly city. Spend a while in retail therapy, either taking turns to hold the dog, or popping into some of the dog-friendly retailers like John Lewis, Fat Face or Oliver Bonas – and take a pit stop, or a dinner out as a reward at one of the many dog-friendly restaurants
  • Cirencester is a quick half-hour drive to the south east! A historic market town, pop in to visit the now ruinous Roman amphitheatre, followed by a tour of the Corinium museum, where the relics of the Roman legacy of the town now rest. For those looking for more contemporary features, pop into the New Brewery Arts Centre – housing local artisan’s work, studios and a café to refuel
  • You could (and should!) head over to Dunkerton’s Cider and Farm Shop, with organic cider made on site, as well as a deli selling organic British charcuterie, olives and antipasti, and a selection of organic cheeses – it’s just a half hour’s drive or so
  • If you feel like staying within the bounds of The Cotswolds to grab your ingredients, then you’re a traveller after our own hearts. The food grown here is magnificent, and one of the best places to get some incredible produce is the Daylesford Farm shop. Though a 50-minute drive, it might well be near enough to one of your days out in The Cotswolds, so pop in for organic produce, organic meat, bread, and much more
