If you play golf then you will almost be in heaven as the Cotswold Hills Golf Club is pretty well just around the corner. Opened in 1976, the course has matured over the years into a fine test of golf and is considered to be one of the finest courses in Gloucestershire. It is a past venue for the English Ladies Amateur Championship and the Men’s and Ladies County Championship. In 2012 we were the proud hosts of the EnglandGolf Boys (u18s) County Finals. The championship course, measuring 6800 yards, features long par 5’s, superb short holes and a variety of par 4’s, which are both challenging and great fun to play. Five tee positions are available to allow golfers of varying ability to experience a challenging and enjoyable round of golf. The course is consistently praised for the quality of its greens and its overall presentation.
And if you love walking then Dryhill Cottage is ideal as it is very close to the Cotswold Way. The Cotswold Way runs northeast along the Cotswold Edge escarpment of the Cotswold Hills from Bath to Chipping Campden. The 102-mile (164 km) trail passes through or near to Old Sodbury, near Chipping Sodbury, Wotton-under-Edge, Dursley, Stroud, Painswick, Cranham, Leckhampton, Cheltenham, Winchcombe, Stanway and Broadway. The Cotswold Way passes numerous places of interest, including the site of the Battle of Lansdowne, the Somerset Monument, the Tyndale Monument, Sudeley Castle, Cleeve Hill, Hailes Abbey, and the Broadway Tower.
And if you ride you be delighted to know that the Ullenwood Court Riding Centre are just the other side of the Cotswold Way from Dryhill. Established in 1993, the riding centre is owned by Melanie Pitt who gained BHS qualifications at Talland School of Equitation and an equine business education at Hartpury College with the aim of founding a family orientated riding school and livery yard. Over the years a close community of horse owners and riders has grown up on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment just minutes from Cheltenham below. Horses and riders alike benefit from eighty acres of fields bordered by woods with scenic views to the west and a bridle path leading to Crickley Hill Country Park.
