The Ridge Gloucester
Luxury Eco Holiday Accommodation

Base of the Barrington Tops

Packages, News and Things To Do in Gloucester

QUIETER AND COOLER TIMES - Now that Autumn is here and "Winter is Coming!", Gloucester and Barrington Tops come into their own as ideal locations for a quiet and relaxing few days enjoying the region’s natural beauty and experiencing the seasons.

You can still do adventure activities but it’s less crowded, more accessible, the weather is cool and there may even be snow on The Tops!  

The Ridge can tailor an Adventure Package to suit your requirements; from gentle scenic nature walks to exhilarating white water kayaking, mountain biking, abseiling or even a round of golf.

PICTURE YOURSELF HERE!

Autumn and Winter are great seasons to enjoy an invigorating country escape at the Ridge.  The house is perched high against Gloucester’s iconic “Bucketts” range, above the frost line. You often wake to see the mists in the valleys and clear blue skies above.  Signs of another wonderful day ahead.
And don't forget that The Barrington Tops gets a dusting of snow most winters. 

Great fun for the kids!

There are still a number of available dates in May, June and July.  

We suggest you book well in advance of your planned visit so that you aren’t disappointed.

GLOUCESTER’S BOUTIQUE WINERIES

A wonderful way to enjoy an afternoon is to take a short drive around Gloucester and visit some of the local boutique wineries. Most are open for wine tasting throughout the holidays and on weekends and have beautiful views to match their wines. Weekday tastings may also available.  It is always best to ring ahead to ensure that the winery is open so they can give you a tour and tasting.
