As this world we live in gets faster and allows us less and less time for ourselves, we sometimes need to step away from the pressures of everyday life. This tranquil oasis can give you that rare opportunity. The Pinetum is a private arboretum of spectacular trees and views over the rolling Cotswold landscape. Planted in 1840 by Thomas Gambier Parry and coaxed to its current beauty by David Wilkin and his wife, Carol, over the past 60 years. The Pinetum is more than a place to stay, it is a place that will stay with you. It is a space to breathe. As one guest commented: ‘This must be where the angels live’.
The Pinetum is an historic Victorian hunting lodge available for rent, well off the beaten track situated in 13 acres of beautiful woodland garden in the Gloucestershire countryside. Only four miles West of Gloucester, surrounded by a 500 acre RSPB reserve and high above the Severn Vale, it affords spectacular views across the valley to the rolling Cotswold hills. It is situated within easy reach of the Forest of Dean to the West, and Tewkesbury and Gloucester to the East. There are several woodland walks that start from the Lodge, as well as those within the neighbouring Highnam Wood. Guests can benefit from 5 bedrooms, a huge living room and kitchen, open fires and swimming pool. Dogs are welcome. Ideal for group and family breaks.
Surrounded by woodland, this accommodation is deceptively rustic from the outside but the modern interior features a flat screen tv, breakfast bar, fully functional kitchen and innovative bathroom with bath & rain shower neatly contained within. Sit on the deck and make use of the barbeque whilst enjoying the privacy and tranquility of the Pinetum and its wildlife in this cosy, romantic getaway spot.
Lovely walks right from the very Lodge itself. Guests can follow paths constructed in 1840 and still edged to this day by the original slate – unearthed during renovations in the 1980s. Public footpaths surround the Pinetum allowing visitors to enjoy walks to suit their stamina.
The Pinetum tree house which proudly sticks its head above the canopy was built ten years ago out of a desire to reach for the skies and provide a quiet venue for the writing of the Pinetum history. The book is still to be finished but the romantic house in the trees is an excellent venue for pre-dinner drinks.
The Natural water Garden is now an established part of the Pinetum, over which a latticed pine bridge has been constructed.

Perfect cosy place
We stayed in the cabin for three nights in May 2017 with 2 dogs. I cannot fault our stay. The cabin is very cosy, plenty of heaters if cold. A well equipped kitchen, everything you need, including a full size cooker and microwave. A great bath with shower for the small space, plenty of hot water. The deck is a lovely place to sit, you feel you are in the tree canopy due to the location of the cabin in the woods. Plenty of walks from the cabin, but once off the property...

Pinetum Lodge is a house full of historical character and warmth. Perfect place for a big family gathering as there is a well equipped country kitchen (with aga) and a large family room with two wood burning fire places (we took full advantage of both). Add to that plenty of bathrooms and you have the recipe for a stress free vacation. Gardens are absolutely spectacular with help to Sue. Hosts extremely thoughtful (Carol and David) and were willing to do whatever it took...

What can we say, beautiful cabin in the woods, beautiful surroundings. Totally relaxing weekend for John, myself and Bella the dog. Had an amazing time, now back to the hustle and bustle of normal life. Will definitely come back. Lots of love, Sharon, John & Bella.
