Please wear face masks in the reception area and when queuing for the cafe, and observe social distancing wherever possible. 

If volunteers are available, we run a mini-bus service to/from the Mansion, and have guided tours at 11:45am and 2:30pm. Click for details of minibus times and tours.

Fri 24th Sept: last minibus back up hill to car park at 3:45pm.

Visitors please note: We are in a rural location and there is no mobile phone reception at the Mansion. Please read about how to find us if you're not local to the area. Car parking is 3/4 mile from the house. The access track is not made-up and in places floors in the Mansion are uneven. We find that our visitors spend about 60 to 90 minutes touring the house.

Important - How to find us:

Woodchester Mansion is hidden in a quiet sheltered valley about 5miles south of Stroud. The seclusion has contributed to the survival of the Mansion, but makes it hard for some visitors to find. Please read all the instructions if you are not familiar with the area!

The Mansion is sited in Woodchester Park, near the village of Nympsfield. The Park is owned by the National Trust (but the Mansion is not an NT property). However, visitors are asked to park in the NT car park (fee £3). The entrance to this is on a minor road that runs from the B4066 (Stroud to Dursley road) to Nympsfield. The turning to Nympsfield is close to the Coaley Peak viewing point. The entrance to the NT car park is on the left, about 250 yards from the junction with the B4066.

Please follow this link for directions from the A46, M4 and M5.

Please do not use the Mansion postcode in your SatNav. If you do this unfortunately many systems will take you from the A46 to the E end of Woodchester Park in the village of South Woodchester. There is no access to the Park or the Mansion from here, the road is narrow, it is hard to turn and extra visitors inconvenience local residents.

It is much better to use 'Woodchester Park' or 'Woodchester Mansion' if these are options on your SatNav. You can also input the villages of Selsley or Uley, which are on the B4066 which goes past the turning to Nympsfield, where you will find the entrance to the NT car park.

The grid reference for the NT car park entrance is SO 797 011 and it is at Latitude 51.7088N Longitude 2.2953W.

SATNAVS - IMPORTANT

Unfortunately, some SatNavs will not take you to the Mansion if you put in our post code. It is much better to use 'Woodchester Park' or 'Woodchester Mansion' if these are options on your SatNav.
