Property details

Located in a secluded valley close to the classic Cotswold town of Stow-on-the-Wold, Old Brewery House is a terrific Cotswold retreat with a real difference. Old Brewery House is located within the grounds of the Donnington brewery (hence the name!) which in 1827 was bought as a working mill by Thomas Arkell, his descendant Richard Arkell founded the Brewery here in 1865. Inside much of the original charm and character has been retained and many of the rooms enjoy stunning views across the private lake and gardens. The open-plan kitchen/dining room is well equipped and there are 2 living rooms, so plenty of space! The 4 en-suite bedrooms can be configured into doubles or twins depending on your requirements which makes this property flexible for all parties. Oh, and the beer produced is of course available to purchase from Andy, the onsite manager!
