If you are travelling around the Cotswolds. then this place is well worth a visit and for younger visitors , the museum gives a good indication of how cloth was made in times past

We like very much your description of Cotswold Woollen Weavers as 'many different rooms'... For this is exactly what we are aiming at: many different rooms, some in our buildings and some outside. All interlocking, but all with slightly different themes and content. Thank you...More

Interesting history and artefacts regarding the wool industry, excellent shop - with a wide range of good quality wool, sheepskin and leather products (mostly reasonably priced). Well worth calling, also a nice tea shop on site.

Bits of it are. We struggled quite a bit but luckily partner has some mobility so we managed the rough bits. The shop part is ok and very nice if someone's looking for something special.
