About Lance House

Nestling at the foot of the Cotswold escarpment above the Vale of Berkeley and the River Severn, Lance House is a perfect base for touring the South West.
The Cotswold Way runs nearby, and there are many footpaths from your doorstep.
Ancient woodlands join the open Common by which Lance House is situated. The cows that graze the Common in the summer are joined by deer, foxes and badgers. In May nightingales can be heard from the bedroom windows. Owls regularly hunt on the open Common, and skylarks, cuckoos and woodpeckers nest nearby. Rare flora are to be found a stones throw away.
There are many National Trust properties in the area as well as sleepy hamlets, antique shops, stately homes and crafts centres to explore.
Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust, Westonbirt Arboretum, Berkeley Castle, Tetbury, Malmesbury, Castle Coombe, Forest of Dean, Bath, Bristol all within 20 miles.
This property offers 1 double, 1 twin, 1 sofa bed in lounge, family shower room, lounge with woodburning stove, very well equiped kitchen/diner, private garden. Formerly 4 Star Visit Britain Award.
All heating for both water and rooms is now supplied by a biomass boiler which uses logs coppiced locally.
The heated indoot swimming pool is available between Easter and November.
