Slimbridge provides B&B accommodation in the heart of Gloucestershire. Our beautiful countryside location is just a short walk from Slimbridge Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre.

Situated near to the canal in the hamlet of Shephard’s Patch in the Severn Vale, this purpose-built lodge is situated close to Slimbridge Wetlands Centre and makes a "simple yet charming" rural retreat for those who want to enjoy all that Slimbridge has to offer in comfortable, peaceful surroundings.

We have a variety of accommodation options ranging from single, double and family rooms to dormitories which offer the best value for money. All our rooms are light, airy and spacious with super comfortable beds, thick cosy duvets and soft white towels. The peaceful surroundings at Slimbridge ensure a quiet and comfortable night’s sleep throughout the year.

There is a large dining room seating 40 people with easy access to the kitchen. We are fully licensed to sell alcohol and have a comfy lounge with wood burning stove and self-serve bean to cup coffee, comfortable sofas, bar stools and TV. We have a large games room with flat-screen TV, DVD and a pool table at 20p per play.

The garden surrounds our lodge and has benches overlooking the enclosed pond. We have a garden with picnic spaces and beautiful grounds, perfect for kids to play in.
