The Area: Oakridge Lynch, Gloucestershire, Cotswolds

In the heart of an unspoilt village that is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Old Mill is a wonderful place for a relaxing break away. All the normal country pursuits are on the doorstep with great walking just outside the door; a proper local pub that offers fabulous food and plenty going on the the local towns. An easy journey from London along the M4 and from the South West and North West, Oakridge is a good gathering point for groups of friends and family who want to get together. Our guests seem to enjoy the house so much that they don't sightsee much but, if you want to use Oakridge as a base, the rest of the Cotswolds and the South West are within a comfortable drive.

Oakridge is equidistant from two important towns - Cirencester and Stroud - and only 8 miles from Cheltenham so well placed to enjoy the full spectrum of all the Cotswolds has to offer. Stroud is renowned as a 'green' town with an arty, hippy feel. It was one of the first places to have a Green MP and was the first town to hold a farmers market, encouraging local producers and reducing food miles. The Stroud Farmers Market continues to offer a superb selection of the best that growers in the area can offer. Cirencester has a wonderful church, plenty of shopping and some decent places to eat. Cheltenham, Queen of the Cotswolds, is world famous for its racecourse which hosts the renowned Gold Cup every March. It was recently voted 'the nicest place in England to live' and has a great selection of restaurants, bars, clubs to enjoy. The architecture is splendid and the museum often has cutting edge exhibitions on display. It is also home to popular festivals of classical music, jazz, science and literature.
