Staying at the Farm
Cider House Cottage is a delightful Cotswold stone former cider house, which was once the cider barrel store at Noverton farm. The cottage now lies detached in the grounds of Hall Place House and has been converted for accommodation for guests staying at Hall Place.
The cottage has its own separate facilities and can accommodate two people in a double bedroom, which has its own en-suite shower and toilet, a fully equipped kitchen, lounge, and down stairs cloak room. Many riding customers, both Western and English have stayed at the cottage and have even brought their own horses to stay at the stables, for them to ride on their holiday. Guests who are going to Cheltenham’s famous racecourse when they are staying for the Cheltenham Festival Gold Cup week often use the cottage. Many walkers have stayed at the cottage, when they have used it as a starting point to explore the Cotswold Way, which runs through the farm.
The farm’s trails extend through meadows and woodland to the top of Prestbury Hill, called a chelt. The chelt is the Cotswold horseshoe escarpment, which actually gave Cheltenham its name. This vantage point eventually offers the most wonderful vistas, which look out from Cleeve Cloud over the Severn Valley across the slowly winding River Severn, to the blue Malvern Hills and Black Welsh Mountains, far beyond. Cheltenham offers great shopping in its famous Promenade and nearby indoor malls, where shoppers can find many fashionable boutiques and restaurants.
