windy-ridge-squirrell2Welcome to Windy Ridge Estate: Cotswold Bed and Breakfast

Windy Ridge is a small country estate situated high in the Cotswold Hills overlooking the Evenlode Valley, offering luxury Bed and Breakfast with traditional Cotswold hospitality and a holiday cottage for rent which sleeps up to six people.

Windy Ridge is a beautiful family home, the centre piece of an estate which has been in the Williams family since the late 1800’s.  The current host at Windy Ridge is Nick Williams.  The House displays some wonderful features; mullioned windows, gables and Norfolk reed thatched roofs.  Visitors are offered generously furnished bedrooms, a large pine-panelled sitting room and a mini-kitchen if required.

Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Windy Ridge is conveniently located in the heart of the Cotswolds. This central position is perfect for exploring all of the Cotswolds’ most renowned touring ‘gems.’   Moreton-in-Marsh and Stow-on-the-Wold are just 2.5 miles away.  Bourton-on-the-Water, Broadway, Chipping Campden, Cheltenham and Cirencester, all bursting with individual shops and restaurants, are within easy reach for the perfect day out.

Half a mile from Windy Ridge is the historic village of Longborough.  Walk around the village and explore its attractive huddle of 17th-century stone cottages and the historic St James church built in the 12th Century. The Longborough Village Community shop offers a cafe and post office.  The local pub, The Coach and Horses, is a two-minute walk.

Award winning Cotswold gardens and Arboretum

At Windy Ridge you can relax and unwind. Stroll through the gardens and arboretum or take a dip in the swimming pool.

The prize winning gardens at Windy Ridge are beautifully maintained with flower gardens, shrubs and trees all landscaped in a patchwork of well-manicured lawns and hedges. In addition, there is the 10 acre arboretum with over 280 different species of trees. It is well worth exploring.

Set amongst the gardens is a heated swimming pool, open from end May to end August (charges apply, please request costs). If you are feeling energetic then have a game of tennis on our all-weather tennis court (currently closed for renovations) or for more gentle exercise you can play croquet on the lawn or billiards/snooker on our full size table.

The grounds with the house as a backdrop or the arboretum make the perfect setting for a wedding reception or other celebration.
