Things To Do

Plan Your Stay

18th February 2023

Nestled in the heart of the Cotswolds, we are lucky to be surrounded by many cultural and historical landmarks for you to explore.

Whether you’re looking to venture on a long walk in the vast surrounding countryside, learn a new craft or culinary skill or to spend time relaxing in our holistic spa, Daylesford Stays has everything you need. 

With over 2,000 acres of organic farmland to explore, we highly recommend walking to Daylesford and following the signposted walks to discover the surrounding Cotswold countryside. Discover our walks with our downloadable map here.

Alternatively join our weekly Guided Nature Trail. Exclusively for Daylesford Stays guests, join our sustainability expert on a guided walk from The Wild Rabbit across the Daylesford estate to our sister farm. Enjoy the picturesque Cotswold landscape walking through British woodlands and farmland and learn how organic farming practices protect and nurture it. Speak to the team to book your place when placing your booking.

The lush green pastures surrounding Daylesford are dotted with some of the prettiest towns and villages in England, from nearby Stow-on-the-Wold to the Cotswold ‘gateway’ of Burford.

Wandering the bridleways, farmland and cobbled streets provides a simple pleasure that’s hard to resist, but there is more to the picturesque villages than meets the eye. There are cultural and historical landmarks waiting to be discovered: from Chastleton House near Moreton-in-Marsh, and Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, to the botanical gardens in Oxford, and Greystones Nature Reserve near Bourton-on-the-Water.
Bustling markets and antiques fairs bring energy and life to the local towns and villages each week, the perfect chance to pick up souvenirs from your stay. The luxury outlet boutiques at Bicester Village are only a short drive away.

For those seeking more energetic activities, you’ll find world-class golf courses, shooting ranges and horse riding stables, while more relaxed days can be spent exploring art galleries and antique emporiums, pausing at the tea rooms and country pubs found on every corner.
