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!

Our party of 8 ( 4 couples) celebrated my sons 30th birthday and Easter weekend at The Brewery, we had a magical visit....The Brewery is even prettier in person than in photos...it is an Idyll, a fairytale spot with a river, croquet lawn & ducks & swans all going to greet you...as well as cows in the field next store...The 4 bedrooms rooms are all large (super kings) that can be unzipped for singles if needed....with pretty modern bathrooms...the beds comfortable and lots of linens and duvets to cosy up in.....The kitchen is so well equipped and there is an outdoor bbq...the living rooms and smaller den (our guys dubbed the " man cave) are so well done ( there is a fire place in the living room which works beautifully) There are gorgeous country walks, quiet and a fabulous real brewery right next door...we never heard any noise.....If there house were for sale, I want to get it....we ALL said we'd be back...we had a terrific time.....blissful...I recommend highly!

The Brewery is stunning...everything we could have hoped for in location, beds/baths - outdoors, games, the river the surrounding towns and things to do & see. The local walks were just fabulous!....outstanding on all fronts.

Fantastic ,comfortable, spacious setting to relax for the weekend. We met up with 8 friends for a weekend of walking and social. We had a fab time! The facilities in the house were great , and we mastered the electric Aga (type) cooker. Bedrooms were spacious and a king size bed. Kitchen large enough to dine for 8 adults. The grounds are set by a lake and running stream with garden furniture to enjoy the sunshine. This would be a great place to have a family celebration or gathering. I know some of the party are already planning a return visit . Clear sky at night and low light pollution opens up the sky at night. Oh yes , if you like beer there is the Donnington brewery on site 😉🍺

8 of us had such a lovely stay celebrating 25 years since we all met! Andy the manager really looked after us, and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. The photos do not do the house or location justice! Perfect place for 4 couples to share as all the bedrooms are lovely, and have their own bathroom.

Brilliant stay at Old Brewery House! Lovely spacious house, great for our group of 4 couples and a young baby. Bedrooms are all huge and the whole house was spotless! The photos on the listing don’t do it justice! Rooms are enormous! We would love to stay again, thank you for having us!

We had the best stay! One of the most gorgeous unique properties I've ever stayed at. The house is secluded on acres of land with the house connected to the brewery (closed on weekends). This allowed for tons of privacy and nature outside your doorstep

We stayed in Old Brewery House and had a lovely time. The house is very spacious and beautifully presented. The furnishings are clean and comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked with ample crockery and utensils. There’s plenty of hot water and heating when required. The house stands in fantastic grounds with a small river in the garden. There’s a lake to the side with masses of ducks, geese and swans to watch. It was wonderful. I would definitely recommend this property.

We had such a wonderful time. Andy was so helpful and friendly. The house is in such a beautiful setting and was spotless and so light and spacious inside. Great location for walks - we went to up to Broadway tower which was fantastic!
