Lovely drive to villa down lanes surrounded by Cotswold stone walls, never seen so many pheasants!
The villa itself was very interesting good mosaics
The entrance fee at £8.50 is rather pricey
Good couple of hours looking around
Look out for the giant snails!!

“Brilliant, now that the new facilities are open”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Having first visited a year ago whilst all the new facilities were being constructed, we looked forward to this visit with much anticipation. We were not disappointed!! The National Trust have invested in some wonderful new exhibition facilities which show off the Roman mosaics to their best and the new shop, reception and cafeteria a bright, cheerful and most welcoming. Whilst it would be good to have a few more tables to eat at, this must not detract for the superb way in which this wonderful piece of history has been protected and made accessible at the same time. The audio trail is brilliant and there are guided tours available as well and it is amazing how fast 3 hours seems to fly by. A brilliant bit of preservation work and well done the NT.

“Two hours well spent”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Another piece of Roman history to add to our tapestry. A beautiful site with much information on Roman life. The guide was excellent as was the lady with the weaving demonstration. Not a large place but certainly an important piece to tie Roman life in Bath, Chester and Hadrian's Wall together if you are a history buff. If not, still a peaceful place to spend a morning or afternoon. A nice drive in to the Villa.

“Pretty setting but not a lot to see!”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The site has been recently restored. The smell of new wood is everywhere. The remains of the villa are not much to see. The highlight is the enclosed main building with mosaics.

I have to admit we were a bit disappointed. The quality of the mosaics doesn't compare with those in the nearby Cirencester museum.

The cafe is quite nice and it is a lovely setting. But the price of admission is too high for what there is, especially compared with other National Trust sites.
