The 18th-century Grade I listed Orangery has been described as "the prettiest garden building in all England". It sits just off the village green in a secluded corner of the garden surrounding Frampton Court and has views across the park to the lake and woodland beyond. Converted to provide quirky but cosy self-catering accommodation, the elegant main rooms are octagonal with arched windows. The stone and tile floors are original and the spiral stone staircase is stunning. The kitchen is fully equipped to provide food for any occasion and the octagonal dining room with its ornate fireplace and views of the Dutch ornamental canal provides an ideal setting for a special meal or a simple family get together. The octagonal sitting room is cosily furnished with sofas and armchairs and has a delicate mural on the walls and an open fire for winter days and chilly evenings. Logs are provided. There is a TV, a DVD player and wifi. There are four comfortable bedrooms: a double and a twin downstairs and a double and a twin upstairs. The two double bedrooms have an ensuite bath or shower. The twin rooms have their own basins. The large family bathroom with a magnificent double-ended roll-top bath and large shower cubicle is downstairs. For groups larger than eight, Frampton Court across the garden provides bed and breakfast for ten people and can be booked in conjunction with The Orangery. Both are often used for special celebrations or by families of couples getting married in the Wool Barn. Guided tours of Frampton Court can be usually be arranged on Monday mornings for Orangery guests. The beautiful Manor garden across the village green is open from May to July on Monday and Friday afternoons from 2.30 to 5.00, and the specialist plant nursery Pan-Global Plants is in the walled kitchen garden next door to The Orangery. Frampton has a cafe/bistro, two pubs and a village shop with post office. The local walking is wonderful and the Orangery is perfectly placed for visiting Slimbridge, Berkeley Castle, Gloucester Docks and Cathedral, the Cotswolds, Cheltenham and Bath to name just a few of the many places within reach.

From the Owner
“The Orangery is the perfect place to celebrate a special birthday or anniversary or just to gather and relax with family or old friends. Many of our visitors make the most of the unusual setting by hosting a small party - the dining room will seat up to12. There are lots of places to visit - Berkeley Castle, Slimbridge, Gloucester Historic Docks and Cathedral, Cheltenham and Bath with their elegant shops. The local walks, whether along the Gloucester and Sharpness canal or around the lakes and the estate are very varied and excellent for wildlife and birdwatching.”
