Having tried many of the wonderful Woodchester Wines in local pubs and restaurants, we were pleased to come across their new shop on the road between Nailsworth and Stroud. The grapes are grown on the slopes below the cottage so it was great to celebrate Christmas with a bottle of excellent local sparkling wine, their 2015 Cotswold Classic.
A selection of events from our time at Little End to give you a flavour of the opportunities the cottage affords:
Having spent an idyllic Christmas at Little End with all the family, we have now returned home thoroughly rested. For my son and his youg family, the weather was wonderful of Christmas Eve to play football on the Common, with the snow on Boxing Day a real bonus especially as Father Christmas brought a new toboggan but . A wonderful time had by all!
We have just had a wonderful weekend in the cottage which began in typical style with a visit to Stroud farmers' market. We bought far too much (bread, cheese, salami, wine, cheesecake!) but enjoyed every bit of it. As winter approaches, the hot food and glorious pies look ever more attractive.
Visiting this weekend, our children made the trek to Chavenage House between Amberley and Tetbury to show our granddaughter where they got married. She loved looking round the house and gardens and could finally locate all of those dusty old wedding photos. Sadly no snow like on the night of our wedding - what a wonderful day it was!
