The National Trust’s Ebworth Centre is a very special place. Hidden away in a spot that can justifiable classed as ‘out in the sticks’ – yet still readily accessible from Stroud, Gloucester and Cheltenham – it boasts some of the best features the Cotswolds have to offer: beautiful beech woodlands, organic pastures grazed by sheep and cattle and lovely honey-coloured farm buildings.
Our site is the Shrubbery, a ‘small but perfectly formed’ woodland area all set up for playing and exploring.
The Ebworth Centre has parking and toilet facilities.
For more information about the Ebworth Centre have a look at the National Trust website.
Take the B4070 towards Birdlip. Go through Slad and past the signs for Bull’s Cross and Sheepscombe. Once you have passed the Foston’s Ash pub on the right you will pass a small cluster of houses on the left – slow down. Just after the next (single) house, on the left again, is the entrance to the Ebworth drive.
On the B4070 towards Stroud, pass the turning to Cranham. Shortly after, watch out for the single house on the right, the Ebworth drive is just in front.
On the drive, please don’t go any faster than 30 mph and watch out for bumps and pot holes! Then take the right hand fork and slowly follow the track around the little woodland (our activity site) and into the Ebworth Centre.
At the end of the track turn right and our designated car park is on the left hand side. Please only park there and in neat rows – we need to block each other in.
