Sue and Peter Gibson
Rural but not isolated, we enjoy a peaceful and secluded position in the Severn Vale near to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust Wetlands Centre and adjacent to the Gloucester - Sharpness Canal.
Surrounded by farmland, we are within walking distance of the WWT and the sight and sounds of migrating wildfowl in winter.
The accommodation in our adjoining annexe comprises a very comfortable twin-bedded room with toilet/shower room attached, TV, tea and coffee making facilities, private entrance and fine views of the Cotswolds. Full English breakfast is served in the conservatory and we are open all year.
Sue is a practising horticulturist and gardener and teaches garden design. She runs her own gardening school and short courses or individual tuition can be arranged,
Peter likes to dowse for archaeology features when not cooking breakfasts.
Places of interest nearby include the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, Westonbirt Arboretum, famous for the autumn colours in its Acer glades and the woods in spring, Berkeley Castle and the neighbouring Jenner Museum, Badminton Horse Trials, with Bristol, Gloucester and the Cotswold towns and villages easily accessible.
For walkers, the Severn Way runs alongside the canal and the Cotswold Way is 5 miles distant.
May Cottage started as a pair of two storey farm cottages with a washhouse attached dating from the early 1800's. In 1973 the red brick extension was built to convert the partly derelict house into a bungalow and in 1999 two rooms were added to the front of the builing.
The washhouse subsequently had a toilet and shower room added to make a comfortable guest room and later into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. There is a colourful cottage garden in front of the house and a small orchard at the back.
