AMENITIES

The beautiful Toadsmoor valley runs north of the river Frome, from Bourne Bridge to Bisley. International best-selling writer Jilly Cooper has been quoted to say "Toadsmoor is a heavenly spot…awash with gorgeous deer…badgers, foxes…rabbits as well as amazing birds. "There are usually buzzards over head and I sometimes see the blue flash of the kingfisher." "Walking around a ravishing secret lake in the wooded heart of the Toadsmoor Valley. As I walk, magnificent woods rise cliff like to the left. To the right, along the water's edge giant beeches seem to prop up the sky." (My Favourite Wildlife place by Jilly Cooper). "Frogsmoor in my book Riders is loosely based on Toadsmoor and the houses in my books are based on the ones around here."

Many local amenities came be found nearby, and the area is renowned for its three 18 hole golf courses, polo and equestrian facilities and events held at Gatcombe and Badminton. Mainline stations are can be found at Stroud and Kemble, bringing London Paddington within 90 minutes travelling time.
