The drive to Hawkwood is beautiful in itself, through the rolling Cotswold countryside and close to the market town of Stroud. When you arrive at our grade II listed house you will be rewarded with gorgeous views and a warm welcome from our friendly staff. You may be arriving for a Hawkwood course, a residency, or a business away day, but take some time to settle in and get to know the other interesting and like-minded people who are staying in the house.
Walking around the grounds will reveal all kinds of interesting secrets, from pumpkins and figs in the garden to our fresh, natural spring, and giant sycamore tree. Delicious, locally sourced food is guaranteed for all meals, as well as plenty of tea breaks with home baked treats.
Hawkwood will nourish and inspire you, and offer unique opportunities to connect with others. After a fulfilling day, take a walk along the local woodland footpaths or around the biodynamic farm. As night time falls you can enjoy the stillness and silence, away from cities and traffic. Just a word of warning: you may not want to ever leave!
