To see and to do in the local area

Fairford lies on the River Coln at the foot of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire near the boundary with Wiltshire. From The Bull’s front door, many fine opportunities for a stroll. Fairford’s famous medieval ‘wool’ church of St Mary’s, boasting the finest complete set of 28 medieval stained glass windows in England, is a minute’s walk away. Alternatively, take a longer walk along the River Coln by the Old Mill and around the many lakes in the Eastern Cotswold Water Park

The Bull also has private fishing rights to a 1.25 mile stretch of the River Coln with excellent fishing for grayling and trout, making it a popular base for fly fishing trips. Rods cost from £50pp a day for up to five people
