The Notgrove Estate
The Notgrove Estate is a 1500 acre family run working farm owned by Harry and Diana Acland. Set high up in the Cotswold Hills it has 400 acres of grassland in deep valleys and 100 acres of woodland and rolling arable fields. The farm has a mix of sheep, cattle and arable and has diversified with two horse livery yards and a holiday cottage business.
In the last few years Harry and Diana have put in new foot and bridle paths and entered into a wildlife conservation scheme planting 200 acres of special plots planted with wild bird mixes, corn bunting mixes, pollen and nectar mixes for bees and beetle banks that promotes the preservation of our natural wild birds.
The scenery changes with each season as does the pattern of farming; we have an abundance of lambs and calves in spring, harvest in summer, colourful autumn leaves and dramatic winters, often with snow.
The village of Notgrove consists of only 30 cottages, the Manor and the parish Church, making it wonderfully peaceful. The holiday cottages are situated in the village giving you a true feel of the village life. The other cottages are rented out to tenants, many of whom work on the Estate helping with the farm, Estate maintenance and the holiday cottages. The neighbouring village of Cold Aston (1 mile walk) has a wonderful country pub The Plough Inn which has just been refurbished and offers great food and ales.
Nestled in an ideal location to visit many of the Cotswolds most popular towns, villages and attractions. Notgrove is a mere 3 miles from the beautiful Bourton-on-the-Water and the market town of Northleach and just a twenty minute drive from Burford and Cheltenham. With Adam Henson’s Cotswold Farm Park just along the road and The Wild Life Park at Burford we have plenty to keep the kids entertained.
