Upper Doreys Mill

Country Accommodation in the Cotswolds

Front of House

Upper Doreys Mill is a Cotswold stone Mill House dating from the 1770's. Set in beautiful countryside in a tranquil valley with a stream running through it's one acre garden. We are half a mile from Painswick down a narrow, twisting country lane with passing places.

(Painswick was recently used as "Pagford" in J.K.Rowlings "A Casual Vacancy" on BBC tv. Walk around the village and you can find the site of the "sex shop" etc.)

If you need peace and tranquillity Upper Doreys Mill is the place.

There are no TVs in the two bedrooms, although we do have a comfortable lounge with colour television for guest use, with a log fire in Winter and cool Summer evenings. Free WiFi.

Most of the time the only noise is the bird song and the water babbling in the Washbrook stream.100_0413.JPG

We are halfway along the Cotswold way long distance footpath and therefore useful for a stopover for a couple of days. There also many other footpaths in the area ( including one through our garden).

We have maps and leaflets for you to borrow.

The views from the commons and beacons around us are magnificent. There are also many wild flowers starting with snowdrops in the early spring.

The orchids on Edge common are beautiful.

We also have lots of buzzards, foxes, deer, rabbits, weasels, squirrels and badgers. You might see them if you are lucky.


We do have the kingfisher come to see our Koi pond occasionally. You have to be very quiet and very lucky to see him!


At night, we will provide a torch if you choose to  walk to the pub (Half a mile) because it is dark when there is no moon. The stars are lovely and we have minimum light pollution.

100_2481.JPGGloucester with its shopping outlet, Docks and Cathedral (where they filmed Harry Potter) is 5/6 miles down the hill. Cheltenham with its regency splendour, wonderful shops and Racecourse is 9/10 miles along A46.

Stroud with it's quirky and individual shops and wonderful Farmers Market is 3 miles away.
