  • If you want an awesome place to stay and have some peace a quiet, hear owls at night and get cosy with the awesome log burner. This is the place for you. The Cotswolds is beautiful and this is a perfect base to explore from. Has all the amenities you could want and still give you the lovely isolated feel of serenity. Thanks for a lovey stay.

  • Great location - the dog enjoyed having the hill to run around on. The shepherds hut was immaculate. Loved the speaker/tv combo and the fire made it really cosy when watching a film.

  • The most beautiful spot to wake up to! The bed is very comfortable and the place was very clean and cosy! We walked to the local pub and had a wonderful meal and met some great locals. The place is also very well equipped for making food, only thing missing was milk for the tea and coffee which is kindly provided. Would definitely recommend this place and would love to stay here again!

  • Beautiful location in the Slad Valley, very secluded with lovely views. It was a great way to celebrate our wedding anniversary and just what we needed - a cozy, romantic and peaceful overnight getaway. The woodburner certainly made things toasty! Unfortunately the shower did not work during our stay, but it didn’t bother us, I guess it just made the “glamping” experience all the more authentic! We would love to come back in the summer, have a BBQ and do one of the local walks. Thanks Sophie!

    Katie2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful stay in the Shepherds hut. Really comfy bed! Great location. Peaceful getaway. Just what we needed. Thank you!

    Alessandra2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Truly lovely location with view across the Slad valley. It was easy to find and everything we needed was provided for us. The local pub is excellent with a wide variety of local beers. We brought our dog and he loved the open spaces. The only thing we found difficult was the drive up to the hit in our small car as the lanes steep with big craters.

    Timothy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • If you plan on booking at the Shepard’s hut you will not be disappointed! As a country retreat/romantic getaway it is perfect and has everything you need. Despite the weather forecast this weekend, I still very much feel this is a place you can enjoy both in the winter and summer. The log fire and cosy feel gives that comforting country vibe, and even in the rain we loved gazing at the views from the inside. The surrounding fields are simply stunning and you’ve complete privacy in this charming part of Slad. I slept like a log due to the very comfortable bed; this was definitely a highlight! The land surrounding the hut was very safe for my little dog who had a great time running around. We would definitely recommend and enjoyed escaping the hustle and bustle of London to enjoy this little gem in Slad. I also would recommend the local pub (The Woolpack) for homely cooking and Sunday roasts. The pub itself had a quirky charm and the staff were very welcoming.

Stroud also has a wide range of food retailers, including an award winning Farmers' Market, held every Saturday.
  • Full of character, had everything we needed.

    Jessica2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great, special and quirky space. Amenities were great and the place was sparkling clean, would definitely recommend and stay again. I imagine it would be spectacular in the summer. Jut watch out for stepping right onto quite a busy road where traffic comes roaring past. Parking was also tricky.

    Lou2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Property was lovely and perfect for a few days away. Tip: don't park opposite the property as you will get a note from one of the neighbours, also take your own milk as this isn't provided. Great stay and great location.

    Joanne2020-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Beautifully decorated, great homely feel and everything we needed for a comfortable stay.

    Anna2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a lovely stay at the cottage and it’s more beautiful in real life with an amazing view. Would definitely recommend and return. Not much off street parking but we didn’t mind parking down the hill and walking up. Worth a visit for sure!

    Eleanor2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful winter break at Butterrow gate. The property is gorgeous, very quirky and has everything you need. It is also clean and well presented. The location is great for exploring Stroud and other local villages. The tips provided by the host were perfect. We loved the farmer’s market, the antiques mill and local walks. It is worth noting that the property is on a busy road and you may be kept awake by traffic if you are a light sleeper. We slept like logs from all of the walking! Xx

    Lucy2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • My partner and I stayed at the cottage for a week while exploring the Cotswolds. It was such a lovely place to stay. It is exactly as it looks in the pictures small and super cozy and wonderful. We had a really good time. The place was in a good location if you had a car to explore all the surrounding towns. Without a car the cottage it a little but above the town and therefore is a bit less accessible. Contact with character cottages was easy, check in and out was no issue. The only negative feedback is that the place was a little low on essentials. When we arrived there wasn’t any coffee for the coffee machine and there were no other supplies for cooking other than olive oil. However the kitchen is very sweet and easy to use for home cooked meals. We also weren’t informed beforehand that the washer and dryer machine didn’t work and didn’t find this out till arriving, I thought this would have been great to be told earlier in order to organise our washing. Otherwise the place was the picture perfect cottage and we would definitely stay there again. I would definitely recommend a visit for anyone considering it.

    Marcella2019-11-18T00:00:00Z

Little Culver is a stunning and unique Cotswold stone property, built in 1821. The cottage forms the right hand half of a beautiful castellated Grade II listed building, Culver Cottage. Originally an almshouse, it was built by David Ricardo of Gatcombe Park, and its distinctive architectural style is reflected by its reference in Pevsner's Architectural Guide for the Cotswolds. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Little Culver is located in the heart of the village of Minchinhampton. An ornate arched doorway on the street opens into a lobby, which is shared with the neighbouring property. Little Culver’s front door opens from the lobby into the living room. The following rooms are on the ground floor: Living room: A beautiful, spacious room, adorned with antique maps and artwork, which has a stunning Gothic window with a window seat, and a Cotswold stone fireplace with a wood burning stove. There are two leather sofas, plus a bench seat, and a SMART TV with a freesat box and a DVD player; Kitchen/dining room: A stylish, contemporary room that overlooks the back garden. The well presented kitchen has a range cooker with a five ring gas hob and two electric ovens, two under counter fridges (one with a freezer compartment), a dishwasher, toaster, kettle and cafetiere.

    Minchinhampton is a very attractive, thriving hilltop town, situated on a tongue of high land between the Golden Valley and the Nailsworth Valley, 1.5 miles north east of Nailsworth. The town also sits on the eastern fringes of Minchinhampton Common, high above the valleys that were once prosperous with the production of cloth. The centre of Minchinhampton is a picture-postcard image of what people expect of a small Cotswold town, with a selection of nice shops and places to eat. The town is centred on its High Street and old Market Square, the main feature of which is the late 17th century Market House, supported on stone columns. The interesting Holy Trinity Church dates from the 12th century and has a truncated spire looking over the Market Square. The church was given to Caen's Abbaye aux Dames by William the Conqueror and then in 1415 passed to Syon Abbey, in whose hands it remained until the Dissolution. Minchinhampton Common is a large area of open grassland with spectacular views over the Stroud and Nailsworth valleys. The area is owned by National Trust and is an important archaeological landscape, with prehistoric field systems, burial mounds and the remains of a defensive earthwork, known as The Bulwarks. In the summer the Commons are grazed by local commoners' cattle. The area covers 635 acres and is renowned for its colourful array of wild flowers and butterflies. Food & Drink For a small market town, Minchinhampton is fortunate to be blessed with a number of good places to eat and drink: The Crown Inn (https://www.thecrown-minchinhampton.com/): Roaring fires, a restaurant serving up locally inspired flavours, and a cellar stocked full of craft ales, fine wines, and fizz - when it comes to Cotswold country pubs, The Crown Inn is the perfect place to meet, eat, and make great memories. The Ragged Cot (www.theraggedcot.co.uk): Perched high on the Cotswolds outside the ancient market town of Minchinhampton sits the Ragged Cot, a country inn getaway created for serious pleasure seekers. Born of a 17th century coaching house inn set beside six hundred acres of National Trust common land the Ragged Cot is a pretty special place with an intriguing history of highwaymen and pilferage. The proprietors of the Ragged Cot take pride in their professional approach to food and service, with the seasonal menu offering great British food sourced from local farmers and even their own vegetable garden. With dishes such as seared ox tongue with pickled red cabbage, pheasant with braised leeks and artichoke puree or just simply ham, eggs with triple cooked chips you will always find a dish to fit; The Kitchen (www.thekitchenminchinhampton.co.uk): Choose a seat by the beautiful bay window and watch for riders trotting by on horseback or perhaps the occasional herd of cows strolling down from the Common. Serving delicious breakfasts, morning and afternoon teas, and lunches, all the locally sourced food is prepared fresh daily; The Old Lodge, Minchinhampton Common (www.food-club.com/old-lodge.htm): The Old Lodge is beautifully located in the centre of Minchinhampton Common. With unrivalled views of the Cotswolds, this 400 year old hunting lodge is the perfect place to escape the rush. Enjoy quality, locally sourced food served in the restaurant, the bar area, one of the smaller dining rooms or al fresco in the spacious garden. The stunning restaurant accommodates parties of up to 85 people seated and has floor to ceiling windows that look directly onto Minchinhampton Common. Minchinhampton also has an excellent butcher's shop and an organic cheese shop: L Taylor & Sons (www.taylorsminchinhampton.com): For nearly a century L Taylor and Sons has been supplying the highest quality meat to discerning customers. The quality of the shop has been recognised with a Cotswold Life Butcher of the year award; Woefuldane Organic Dairy (www.woefuldanedairy.co.uk): All the products are made by hand in the farm dairy in time honoured ways. The unpasteurised cheeses change throughout the seasons as the milk varies depending on what the cows are eating.
  • Great period property in a superb location. Well equipped and attractively decorated. Parking easy and close by.

    Ben2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, right in the centre of the village. Had a great stay and would love to go back one day. Sad to have to leave at the end of the holiday.

    Colin2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely stay in Little Culver. All was as advertised - plenty of space for 5 people, very comfortable and stylish. Loved the original features of the house. Thoughtful touches like chocolates and biscuits on arrival were appreciated and the key safe made our arrival stress-free as travelling from London. Would definitely stay again if travelling to the Cotswolds.

    Emma2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely property, cute area and thoughtful touches. A great break from the city with family!

    Skye2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous cottage! Lovely combination of classic country style and modern decor. Perfect amount of space for 5 adults and the surrounding villages are delightful. Would definitely return. Thanks!

    Sarah2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place in the Cotswolds. Very charming, and spacious enough for our family of 5. We would definitely go back.

    Jim2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The perfect pad to explore the Cotswolds, set in a cute little village. Loved the treats and the garden was so beautiful to sit in and enjoy the rest of the British summer.

    Leo2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house In the quiet quintessential English village of Minchinhampton. We rocked up with 5 people and found there to be plenty of room for everyone. The Garden was well kept and a really chilled out place to hangout in the sunshine. No negative comments here! The one thing I would say is to bring cash with you because many of the local establishments don’t take cards.

Close by is the village of Avening, home to two well-regarded country pubs, and there is a lovely organic farm shop with a café just a five minute drive from the cottage. Cherington is perfectly placed for exploring the many pretty towns and villages of the South Cotswolds including Tetbury, Nailsworth, Malmesbury and Cirencester, as well as the spa towns of Bath and Cheltenham. Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Pear Tree Cottage is located in the quiet hamlet of Cherington. Accessed via a lovely patio garden, the front door opens directly into the spacious yet cosy living room. The following rooms are located on the ground floor: Living room: This bright and airy space is full of character and charm, including a bay window, wooden flooring, an inglenook fireplace with a cosy wood burning stove and vintage and antique tables, all complemented by wonderful artwork. There are two sofas, a Freeview TV with a DVD player, and a DAB radio; Dining room: This elegantly presented room is an ideal space for entertaining. There is a large wooden dining table with seating for six, an inglenook fireplace with wood burning stove, a restored antique chair, a converted copper paraffin lamp and an iPod docking station; Kitchen: This well-equipped space is perfect for home cooking and features an electric oven with four-ring electric hob, fridge with ice box, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and a CD player with radio; Utility room: A handy space for keeping muddy boots and storing jackets. This room contains a washing machine/tumble dryer, microwave and an additional fridge. A staircase in between the kitchen and utility room leads up to the first floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: A beautifully presented room with gorgeous views overlooking the quiet country lane from the bay window. There is a king size bed, two chests of drawers (one with a vanity mirror), a wooden rocking chair, plus hooks behind the door for additional hanging space; Bedroom 2: Overlooking the pear tree in the front garden, this lovely bedroom contains two single beds, a chest of drawers for storage, plus hooks for additional hanging space; Family bathroom: A bright and stylish bathroom with a bath, walk-in shower, toilet, wash basin and a heated towel rail. The beautiful rear garden is accessed via the utility room and comprises three different areas. The first section is a lawn bordered by pretty flowers and a box hedge, a lovely setting to relax and unwind. From here, the garden continues through a gap in the stone wall to another well-maintained area which is bordered by flowers, grasses and a variety of fruit trees. This part of the garden descends to one last lawn area, a lovely tranquil space which provides stunning views over the rolling hills and Cotswold countryside beyond. Free on-street parking is readily available close to the cottage and throughout the hamlet.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • Check-in was a breeze – Kevin met us promptly and was very helpful and friendly in showing us round. The cottage is close enough to supermarkets to buy supplies (10-15min from many major brands) yet equally set in the countryside to escape from everything. It was perfectly clean and had everything you could possibly need. Internet was great too for film nights and booking your tickets...but you’d hardly need it beyond that because of the beautiful scenery. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone!

    Zack2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is incredibly beautiful and cosy. We had a wonderful time and would definitely visit again!

    Emily2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • What a lovely comfortable & stylish cottage. We enjoyed the proximity toTetbury with an array of antique shops galore! We visited Bath which was an easily managed one hour drive. Beds exceptionally comfy with quality linen. We enjoyed the log burner & home from home feel !Thankyou!

    Helen2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our weekend in Pear Tree Cottage; a delightful retreat. It was warm and very comfortable, and suited the four of us beautifully. We enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen, and eating in the pretty dining room. Two miles or so from Minchinhampton with pubs (we ate a very good meal at The Crown) and shops, Cherington itself is a lovely Cotswolds village with walks from the door - the countryside around magical with hoar frosts on the 2 days we were there.

    Paul2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Pear Tree Cottage gives you everything you need for a perfect Cotswolds stay. For our winter stay it was cosy & utterly charming. A really delightful place.

    Lindsay2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic cottage in a lovely little village. We were welcomed at the cottage by Kevin who showed us around and let us know he was available should we need any help at all. There is a lovely log burning fire with enough wood supplied to use for one night, we bought more wood from a supermarket ten minutes drive away.

    Georgina2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful little cottage in the cotswolds. Perfect location for exploring the rest of the area. Lovely clean and cosy cottage with a wonderful fire for the evenings. Would highly recommend

    Emily2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic home away from home in a quiet village just outside Tetbury. Comfortable, spacious and well equipped - we couldn’t have asked for any more. We will definitely return for more cosy nights in front of the fire!

    Sunny, double room in a tall Victorian end of terrace. Perfect for those who want a cosy base right in the centre of Stroud. Breakfast is 'help yourself'. In a big busy, friendly, family, cosy home, with kids, 2 lodgers, cats and fish. Warm welcome assured
    Small sunny double bedroom This room on the 3rd floor contains a 4ft 6" double bed, bedside shelves, a hanging rail, a corner desk with lamp and a stool. There is an eco radiator or fan depending on time of year. The shared bathroom is a half landing away with a bath, electric shower, loo and sink. There's another loo next door to the bathroom too. A breakfast of tea/coffee, cereal, toast and fruit juice is included in the price if you stay less than a week (you help yourself). If you're here longer then please provide your own food (our generous discount reflects this). You are welcome to use the kitchen for cooking. We have WIFI which you are welcome to use. The house is a large family and shared 'end of terrace Victorian' home. Its a mixture of classic, contemporary and growing children style. We have 3 cats, lots of fish, several children/young adults and lodgers. The house is by no means 'perfect' - guests can expect a clean and tidy room, with the rest of the house cleaned professionally weekly and kitchen/bathrooms attended to more often. We pride ourselves on a warm relaxed atmosphere for both family and guests which doesn't equate to minimalist immaculate surroundings. Please note there are lots of stairs, so the kitchen is in the basement and the bedroom is 3 floors above.. We're right in central Stroud, minutes from the station and all the shops and restaurants. Parking is available behind the house or on street in front of the house (visitors permit needed except in the evenings and on Sundays). We look forward to welcoming you to our home.
    Stroud is an 'alternative' town with interesting shops and cafes, alongside some of the usual high street shops. The countryside round about is particularly lovely and there are many walks that can be done from the house. We're ideally placed for the award winning Saturday farmers market, Stroud Subscription Rooms, Centre of Arts and Science and Lansdown Hall (all within 3-7 minutes walk).
  • Really lovely room and Natasha was really welcoming.

    Kate2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice Home like environment. Highly recomended host. A team

    Umar2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and clean room, and Natasha is a super host. Highly recommended...

    Florian2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Natasha's house has a lovely lived-in feeling and is full of character and I loved looking at all her artwork on the walls. While there were several people in the house (as well as cats, fish and the newest addition to the family, a cute labradoodle puppy!), it is big enough for you to find a quiet space when you want it. The bedroom while small was adequate for my needs and the comfortable bed gave me a good night's sleep. The location of her house is great, only a minute's walk to the town centre on a fairly quiet road. Stroud is lovely with lots of quirky and creative shops to browse and lots of friendly people to help you on your way - a great community spirit!

    Corrine2019-12-07T00:00:00Z

    Duncan2019-11-09T00:00:00Z

    Louise2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The house was a two minute walk from Stroud's main street. Natasha's family very hospitable and all very well during the stay. A recommended place to stay. Thanks Natasha! I will be back :)

  • You'll get to stay in an utterly adorable place, that's cosy and stylish at the same time, packed with little thoughtful touches from Caroline and Simon. They are the perfect hosts, warm and friendly. Never intrusive but always on hand to help. Couldn't recommend it more highly

    Mark2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline and Simon’s place is lovely and comfortable and is in a beautiful location, with some incredible views. Getting there is straight forward thanks to the helpful directions sent before our arrival. When we arrived we were welcomed by Simon and the their two very friendly dogs. Simon also gave us some great suggestions of walks in the local area. Checking in and out is simple and straightforward. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone wanting to visit the Cotswolds.

    Amena2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline and Simon are lovely Hosts. Both myself and my partner were made to feel completely welcome from the beginning of the trip. Really nice touches and very clean space, nice walks nearby and we were recommended the Woolpack where we had a lovely lunch. Thanks again

    Christopher2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful space, really cozy and location was perfect to explore the local area. Lovley pub only 15 mins walk away and perfect place for country walks.

    Eimear2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely detached space above the owner's garage in a quiet, scenic valley. We agree with all the reviews- it was spotlessly clean. We appreciated the thoughtful touches, including breakfast items and some delicious snacks, as well as a basket full of maps and local guides. It was an easy drive to Stroud, Gloucester and many pretty villages. Some great local pubs- we particularly enjoyed meals at the Butcher's Arms; and we also had a fantastic lunch at The Hive in Stow-on-the-Wold. We managed to arrive on the first day of Storm Dennis, and can confirm Caroline and Simon are far enough up the valley to be flood-proof! Despite the storm we had a peaceful stay and were very cosy there.

    Paula2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely loft, clean, quiet and nicely furnished. We felt very cosy and enjoyed all the local walks and visiting The Woolpack. Will definitely stay again!

    Jude2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Caroline's place is exactly what you want for a break from London. Full of walks and country side. The little bits of breakfast stuff Caroline provides is a real life saver and Simon was kind enough to drop us off at the train station on the day we checked out. It gets real dark on the country paths so it's great if you know what you are doing. Stroud has it's own character and culture of friendliness. The pubs and independent cafes are real gems and sadly you can start to see how the chains are replacing them so hurry up to Stroud before its too late!

    Cheryl2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    As featured on Channel 4's 'Hidden Villages of the Cotswolds' and convenient stop on the Wysis Way for walkers, we offer a rural location surrounded by fields, our own meadow and woodland. The Woolpack, as immortalised in Laurie Lee's 'Cider with Rosie', is only a 10 minute walk away. We are dog friendly!
    Incredibly picturesque setting in this Cotswold valley made famous by that lovable (and very sadly missed) rogue, Laurie Lee, in his novel 'Cider with Rosie'. Steanbridge, a hamlet nestled within the Slad Valley, is a very special place at all times of the year. Our neighbours train racehorses, which are spectacular to see coming down the lane en masse for their daily exercise. We would be pleased to advise on the numerous walks starting and finishing from our home including the Laurie Lee route (people always get lost outside our front garden!). We offer a light and airy, recently renovated top floor of our mill (with direct access). We love it for its character and history as well as the peacefulness and nature around from our doorstep. The 17th century former woollen mill provides a spacious living area for use of guests with two doubles, or one double and two singles, with a double sofa bed and use of a kitchen. Guests are also welcome to explore our garden, including the meadow with the Slad brook running through it, and our woodland which is home to our chickens. We have a BBQ and fire pit in the woods for guests to use also if they so wish. Whilst we both work full time, we are never too far away and try to be available to assist with guests' needs. Parking outside Upper Steanbridge Mill is for 2 cars and guests are welcome to use both. We also have parking on gravel by our stream the other side of the road for further vehicles. We have taxi recommendations locally if you need a lift anywhere as bus routes are reliable but buses run infrequently. Walking into Stroud is a 40 minute stroll. Mobile phone reception at Upper Steanbridge Mill is patchy, so please let us know if you would like to book a taxi etc. and we would be pleased to help. We live in a remote country setting with hardly any light pollution. The pub however (The Woolpack) is only 10 minutes away on foot and thankfully the walk is downhill on the way back. We can lend a torch! Stroud is 2 miles away, (award-winning Farmers' Market on Saturday mornings) Nailsworth 6 miles, Cheltenham 11 miles, Gloucester 10 miles, Cirencester 10 miles, Bath 33 miles and Bristol 30 miles. Bristol Airport is an hour's drive; London Heathrow 1h20mins; Birmingham Airport 1h 30mins. Paddington to Stroud is 1h 30mins by train and a 5 minute taxi ride thereafter. The British designer Jasper Conran once likened Stroud to ‘the Covent Garden of the Cotswolds’ and is a great base to explore the undiscovered south Cotswolds countryside and the Five Golden Valleys. The town of Stroud is the capital of the south western Cotswolds and located at the divergence of the five Golden Valleys, so named after the monetary wealth created in the processing of wool from the plentiful supply of water power. Five populated valleys converge at Stroud, ten miles southwest of Cheltenham, creating a bustle of hills. The bustle is not a new phenomenon. During the heyday of the wool trade the river Frome powered 150 mills, turning Stroud into the centre of the local cloth industry. Even now, Stroud is very much a working town, and one which doesn't need its heritage in order to survive. While some of the old mills have been converted into flats, others contain factories, but only two continue to make cloth - no longer the so-called Stroudwater Scarlet used for military uniforms, but high-quality felt for tennis balls and snooker tables. The Slad valley, again, was a centre of cloth-making until the 19th century when the mills ceased production. The grey-stone village of Slad is scattered along the south-east slope of the narrow valley and has been immortalised by the poet and author Laurie Lee. Our local, The Woolpack, gets very busy at weekends. To avoid disappointment, we would be pleased to book you a table there in advance (Harry, the landlord, is a formidable host but even he cannot work miracles when there are no covers available!). Subject always to our chickens being able to produce enough at the time of your stay, (they don't like too much rain but are pretty hardy otherwise) we can offer 6 free-range eggs for £2.00 - our 8 year old son, Seb, is the boss when it comes to egg sales!
    Rural Gloucestershire at its finest. Lesser known part of the Cotswolds (more industrial in parts but equally as verdant) with steep-sided valleys and a character of its own.
  • A beautiful, rural bolthole in the middle of the rolling hills in the Cotswolds. Warm, friendly and generous hosts made for a wonderful stay.

    Jeremy2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • An exceptional place to stay. Our time at Jonathan’s place went like a dream. Such a comfortable, calm and exquisite place. Towels galore, lots of feather pillows, some groceries for us to use and the most comfortable sofa are a few of the things that made this stay quite perfect. Fabulous location too.

    Sarah2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant place really cosy and some nice touches home from home . Ideal to explore the lovely Gloucestershire countryside . Woolpack pub within walking distance as well . A really lovely countryside place couldn’t fault it

    Michael2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Just returned home from a wonderful weekend away at this stunning, rustic and comfortable property. Would highly recommend especially to those who enjoy “getting away from it all” locations. Lots of long lovely dog walks which we very much enjoyed. It’s also a perfect location with lots of lovely pubs and places to eat a short drive away. Jonathan is an excellent host who balances the attentiveness you want alongside giving you plenty of freedom and space to enjoy his beautiful home. Lots of lovely personal touches like fresh bread, milk, yogurt, and several fruit juices alongside fresh eggs from the hens every morning. Stunning property, beautiful location and excellent hosts with lots of great local knowledge to draw on. Simply brilliant. Will definitely be back. Kevin Mary and Wilson (the cockapoo)

    Kevin2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful cottage in a great location. I didn't have much time or great weather to take advantage of the woodland walks outdoors, but loved having the wood burner and all anyone would need to be comfortable and warm indoors. Everything was sparkling clean, easy to use and lovely to receive bread, butter, milk, condiments, cereals and a selection of herbal teas etc and the offer of fresh eggs from the chicks. A treat waking to views of fields in the mornings, Jonathan and Antonia were great hosts, friendly and on hand if needed yet also very non-intrusive. The location was perfect for me in that in was peaceful and surrounded by woodland, fields, and country walks; yet only a ten minute drive into Stroud for shops (really good farmers market on Saturday mornings btw!) Thank you, I look forward to returning soon.

    Amanda2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely worth a visit - we chose to visit for a weekend away with our two dogs and we had an excellent stay. The weather tried its best to rain on our stay but with a cozy log fire we had a much needed relaxing weekend away in beautiful surroundings. Jonathan is an attentive host with a very useful welcome pack and excellent directions and communication leading up to and during our visit.

    Sarah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved staying in this beautiful home. It has everything you could want out of an air bnb. The sitting room was so cozy with a fire, comfy sofa and big tv. The kitchen was really nice and had everything you need. The upstairs bedroom and bathroom have the most beautiful views, such a big comfy bed, such spacious bathrooms! I couldn’t rate it highly enough. When we were there is was very stormy but the house felt so cozy and safe. In summer it must be beautiful. I would love to go back!

    Eve2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nestled away in the Slad valley, Jonathan's place is the perfect getaway for those wanting to truly relax and explore the beauty of the Cotswolds. It is clean, cosy and full of rustic charm. If you're the active type then there are some amazing walks around this historic valley and it's not too far (just under an hour) to walk into Stroud, where you can find a farmer's market on a Saturday. The house has everything you need and we wouldn't hesitate to book again the next time we head back for some idyllic r&r to the Cotswolds.

  • Jane lovely host she couldnt do enough for us during our stay

    Lewis2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • One of our best stays! Janes home is welcoming, spotless and comfortable. Jane is a very welcoming host. I loved this stay!

    Chloe2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Jane is delightful, a lovely fun lady, and I really enjoyed her company. Her home is beautiful, tastefully decorated to a high standard, in a quiet hamlet location with beautiful Cotswold stone homes. I didn't use the guest lounge but it was lovely and a wonderful amenity for anyone staying more than one night. My satnav took me a very convoluted way but I soon realised that the hamlet is close to a larger village with friendly pubs offering food. I would love to return in summer to explore properly. My only very minor complaint is that the ad could make it clearer that the hosts are in fact a couple, as I (and many other single female travellers) tend to feel more comfortable with female hosts as a first preference. Highly recomnended.

    Ruth2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jane and Tony have a lovely home and certainly made me most welcome. Whilst the downstairs guest lounge looked awfully inviting I opted for an early night. The bedroom’s decor is beautiful in the duck egg blue and white. Along with the thoughtful little touches everywhere, it’s a gorgeous cosy little space to hunker down for the night. I would certainly recommend but try get there before nightfall as it can be a bit tricky to find in the dark.

    Niki2020-02-26T00:00:00Z

    This is a beautiful space with stunning views over the fields towards stroud. It is very simply decorated inside with lovely oak beams and staircase. There is also a wood burning stove for extra warmth in the winter months. From the outside it almost looks like a swiss chalet, and upstairs on the mezzanine floor you will find traditional Japanese Tatami mats and futon beds. There are currently no kitchen facilities apart from a kettle, fridge and microwave.
    The Annexe is clad in beautiful Larch wood which gives it a lovely warm glowing look, the floor, doors and stairs are all warm wood too. The Tatami mats and Futon beds are genuine traditional Japanese pieces.
    The surrounding area is great for walking and cycling, not far from the town of stroud too which has an award winning farmers market every Saturday which has amazing local produce. Stroud is nestled in the 5 valleys in the heart of the Cotswolds with beautiful countryside all round.
  • Such a lovely space! Beautifully decorated and very cozy. If you don't like a thinner, more firm mattress you may want to steer clear; personally I liked the traditional tatami mats.

    Hilary2020-03-01T00:00:00Z

Amberley backs onto the National Trust common land of Minchinhampton Common, a unique 600 acre open space with far reaching views, which offers walking, kite flying and an 18-hole golf course. The larger towns of Nailsworth and Stroud are close by, offering a vibrant selection of restaurants, shops and award-winning farmers markets.

Important Customer Notice: - Special Events: Christmas, New Year and the Cheltenham Horse Racing Festival are Special Events, with bookings typically limited to weeks only from a specific start day If your dates don’t appear to fit, then please click Contact Host below to find out what options may exist for you!
    Grange Cottage is a large semi-detached Cotswold stone cottage, which sits on a steep slope at the top of a rural lane, and benefits from stunning views. The front door opens into the conservatory, which leads through to a well laid out ground floor area: Conservatory: This room enjoys lovely views over the garden to Woodchester and beyond, and has two wicker chairs; Living room: From the conservatory, a step leads into the characterful living room, which has an exposed Cotswold stone fireplace with a wood burning stove, oak beams, and alcove shelving with a selection of local books. There are two two-seater sofas, a small arm chair and a window seat that looks out over the valley. There is also a SMART TV with a DVD player; Reading room: The living room adjoins this pretty room, which has French doors opening out to the garden. There is a small writing bureau, two chairs and a hamper of games; Kitchen/dining room: Steps lead up from the living room to the kitchen, a spacious room with a wooden dining table and seating for six. The well-equipped kitchen has a double electric oven, a six-ring gas hob, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and a hand blender; Utility room: A convenient space for boots and coats, which contains a washing machine/tumble dryer and a freezer; Cloakroom: Contains a toilet and a wash basin. Stairs lead up from the living room to the first-floor landing, off which are the following rooms: Master bedroom: A lovely eaves room, with high ceilings and exposed oak beams, which contains a king size bed and fitted wardrobe, and has nice views of the woodland behind the cottage; Bedroom 2; This bright room enjoys a sunny aspect, with views across to the Woodchester Valley Vineyard, and contains a large single bed; Bedroom 3: Contains a day bed, which is made up as a single bed. The window seat is perfect for watching the sun set; Family bathroom: Contains a bath with an overhead shower, toilet and wash basin. Steep spiral stairs, without a handrail, lead up from the first floor landing to: Bedroom 4: Another lovely eaves rooms, with exposed beams and panoramic views over the Woodchester Valley Vineyard and beyond. There is a double bed, fitted wardrobes and a free-standing flatscreen TV. The door to this bedroom is at the bottom of the stairs and it is not possible to put a stair gate at the top of the stairs, so this room may not be suitable for young children. The main garden area is at the front of the cottage, enclosed by Cotswold stone walls, and is mostly laid to lawn, with traditionally planted cottage garden borders and a variety of mature shrubs and trees. There is a patio area outside the conservatory, with an outdoor table and seating for six, which provides spectacular views across the valley to Woodchester and benefits from glorious sunsets. A lockable shed is available upon request to store bikes and other outdoor equipment. Steps from the back door lead up to a gravelled parking area, with space for two cars.
    The Cotswolds are characterised by attractive small towns and villages, built of the underlying Cotswold stone (a yellow oolitic limestone). In the Middle Ages the wool trade made the Cotswolds prosperous and some of this money was put into the building of churches, leaving the area with a number of large handsome Cotswold stone "wool churches". The area remains affluent, which has encouraged the establishment of many high quality pubs, restaurants and antique shops.
  • The cottage was very comfortable and cosy with everything we needed for a lovely weekend break.

We had a lovely cosy weekend with fires (make sure you pick up enough kindling from the local supermarket) and walks through the woods (wellies necessary!) to the pub, finished off with brunch in the well set up kitchen. Be prepared to climb a very steep hill if your car can’t make it up!

    Laura2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Grange Cottage is very comfortable, warm and cosy. It is a classic Cotswolds cottage with great views over the valley opposite. The location, while up a very steep hill, was excellent - - a short walk through the wood to the fantastic Amberley Inn - - and no issue with access with our car. The log burner was a welcome addition on the cold evenings we spent there.

    David2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your fabulous cottage. It was a beautiful warm, cosy and very clean property with views to die for! I cannot thank you enough for sending back our Google Chromecast so quickly after we left it behind in the property, it arrived in the post today. That is what I call a first class service! Funny thing was that we didn’t even need it as Netflix was already provided. I would like to highly recommend Character Cottages for anyone looking for a quiet and peaceful getaway.

    Sachin2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage had everything you could ask for - 4 beautiful bedrooms with lovely clean bed linen and comfortable beds. Fantastic views and a cosy log fire with idyllic walks around the area. It was very quiet and peaceful and just what we needed as four mums trying to get some relaxation time away from hectic lives and young children. We couldn’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you!

    Caroline2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house located on a serene hill. Quaint details were added throughout the house which made the experience all the more wonderful. The place was super clean! The only downside is that it is located on a very steep hill & a bit too narrow & difficult to drive up. It was a very good stay regardless :)

    Maznan2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay. Fantastic views. Cottage up a steep hill. Pleasant walks from the cottage. Low ceilings but that's to be expected when you consider when it was built.

    Mark2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Brilliant cottage, all as described! Even though it rained quite literally the ENTIRE stay, we didn’t really notice because the house was so nice and had everything we needed! Thank you!

    Amberley, Cotswolds, United Kingdom

    The Chairman's Retreat is a beautifully presented house nestled below Frith Wood in Laurie Lee's stunning Slad Valley. Spacious and bright accommodation with a private terraced garden backing on to a paddock and woodland. Only a short walk to the famous Woolpack pub, a quick drive to Stroud's Farmers' Market and easy access to Cheltenham, Bath, Cirencester, Gloucester and the rest of the scenic Cotswolds, the house offers the perfect base for exploring. Great for families or groups of friends.
    The Chairman's Retreat is a light and airy house with all the comforts of home. It is totally self contained with a private garden and forms the rear half of our home. It's so private you probably won't see us during your stay but if you do need help we are generally just next door. The House is in the middle of the Slad Valley, immortalised in Laurie Lee's beautiful book Cider with Rosie. It has great views across the valley from the garden and views up to Frith Wood from the house. It's a really peaceful retreat in a spot that is magical at all times of the year. We don't have many street lights here so the nights are dark and the stars are bright. Pretty much the only noises you will hear at night are foxes, badgers, owls and the wind in the trees. The house is really comfortable, with a mix of antique and contemporary furniture. The entrance hall has lots of space for coats and muddy boots, a loo and a laundry room with separate washer and dryer. The house is upside down with bedrooms mainly on the lower floor and the sitting room, dining room and kitchen upstairs. Through the entrance hall is a small study area; you'll get good wifi throughout the house but if you need some desk space you'll find it here. Up half a flight of stairs to the master bedroom, with its own en suite shower room and patio doors onto your own private terrace with a table and chairs for morning coffee or evening drinks. This room is easily big enough for a travel cot or child's bed. Round the corner and down some stairs to a double bedroom and twin bedroom with a shared bathroom, which has a bath and shower. Then upstairs to the open plan dining room and sitting room. The dining room has a table for eight; great for lazy dinners. The sitting room is part of the same space but up a flight of stairs. Complete with squashy leather sofas, a wood burner (your first load of logs will be waiting for you), a smart TV, toys, games, books and a DVD collection. There's lots to do and space to relax. The kitchen has a big fridge, separate freezer and large range cooker. Lots of kitchen kit is available and if you need anything else we are just next door and happy to help. There is also a breakfast table and high chair for smaller guests. The fourth bedroom is off the sitting room and down a little corridor and is a double with windows facing Frith Wood. It's next to a bathroom and while not en suite, it's pretty much your own. The bathroom is a tribute to the 80's and as you would expect, has its very own jacuzzi bath. Outside there is a terrace with seating and a BBQ and two lawn areas, one of which is fenced to give some play space for younger guests. There is also a little herb garden, so feel free to help yourselves. You are welcome to use the paddock which is great for romping and frisbee but a bit too sloped for football. Take care with the electric fence around the chickens and do feel free to ask us about eggs. There is great walking to be found all around the valley. You can walk from the Chairman's Retreat straight up into Frith Wood; down the valley will bring you to Tom George's racing stables and through the woods and over the hill will take you to Painswick, the so called Queen of The Cotswolds, with its unusual churchyard, lovely pub The Falcon and surprising Olivas Deli, St Michaels restaurant and a fine coffee shop. Painswick as about a 45 minute walk away and if you fancy a night out, it's a pleasant (if hilly) stroll home. Closer to home is the Woolpack pub. Serving great food, local Uley Brewery and Stroud Brewery ales, it's cosy and popular and famed as an old haunt of Laurie Lee. If you want to be sure of a table it's worthwhile booking or letting us know and we will book for you. Slad is only a few minutes from Stroud by car. Trains from Paddington are direct and take around an hour and forty minutes. There is parking for two cars; if you need more space let us know and we can arrange it. If you are coming from further afield, Heathrow is 1:45 hours away, Birmingham airport 1:20 hours and Bristol 1:20 hours away. Stroud has a great Farmers' market on Saturday mornings - excellent local produce and yummy things for lunch. Our favourites are the Falafel wraps and the Tartiflet and if you can fit anything else in Pippins Doughnuts. Further afield Cheltenham and Gloucester are no more than half an hour by car with good shopping, the race course and The Everyman theatre. Gloucester Cathedral is amazing and hosts some great exhibitions. If you are around in the summer, it's also worth checking out Gifford's Circus, a small but perfectly formed avant guarde collection of craziness, popular with adults and children alike. It tours the Cotswolds in the summer and is really worth a visit. An hour in the car will take you to either Bath or Bristol. Lots of history with the Roman Spa in Bath and HMS Great Britain in Bristol docks. We have a 3 nights minimum stay period. There will always be logs and kindling available to light a fire on your first evening. We can supply further logs for £10 a barrow load; if you need some more, please ask us in advance or on arrival. The Chairman's Retreat - your perfect holiday retreat to explore the Cotswolds.
  • An amazing location and even nicer hosts. Chris left lots of amazing little touches for us to enjoy.

    Charles2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Could not recommend Chris' place more. The location is wonderful with short drives from a number of little villages and a lovely walk which was recommended by Chris. The house was gorgeous and sparkling clean, everything was provided and little touches made the stay that much more special. We had three kids and there were kids plates and cups and even some toys for them to play with. Everything was thought out and it made all the difference. Would love to come back with the whole family again

    Theresa Jaclyn Shihani2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Chairman's Retreat was the perfect base for Christmas. Having recently moved to the US we were back for the holidays and wanting to see all the friends and family we have been missing. The house is in a beautiful spot in the Slad Valley with a short walk to a great pub in the village, also lovely country walks to pubs further afield. The house itself is extremely comfortable and with everything we needed for our stay. What made our stay really great were the hosts, so many thoughtful touches around the house. Chris was happy to provide extra bedding when some of our guests changed midway through our stay, he was also very accommodating with all the extra cars we seemed to have, and even stepped in to receive my Waitrose delivery when I was late getting back! Would highly recommend and we will be back to stay again.

    Emma2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Chairman’s retreat is a lovely property tucked behind the owners home and totally self contained. It is fabulously decorated with lots of personal touches beautifully clean and extremely well equipped. There are lots of walks from the door and lots of hints available to make the most of the area. We had a fabulous long weekend.

    Claire2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our group all really enjoyed their stay at Chris's beautiful place. Nice extra touches (the tasty cake), very clean and presentable. Chris went out of his way to accommodate and was very swift and accurate with his replies. Was happy to change linen when we swapped one guest for another at short notice. All round an enjoyable 2 week stay, would definitely consider this for future stays in Gloucestershire.

    Thomas2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic property - we had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Cotswolds. Chris the owner is a wonderful and clearly cares very much about his guests and their experience - thank you Chris, the flap jacks were amazing. The small touches make all the difference!

    Gemma2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay at Chris’s house in Slad. The house was beautiful. We stayed for 4 nights with family - there were various ages in our group and everyone enjoyed our stay.

    Sarah2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was our third time at the Chairman’s Retreat and we fell in love with Chris’s place all over again! Once again he’s been the perfect host, plenty of information and always available but discreet (not to mention the delicious cake we found upon our arrival). The place was spotless and welcoming as usual and we made the most of its great location overlooking the valley, the walk starting from the Woolpack pub down the road (which serves a great Sunday roast) and back to the Frith wood behind the cottage is highly recommended. If you’re looking for a place where you can relax, forget about work and feel at home look no further. We’ll be back:)

  • I can thoroughly recommend this place. Oana was a terrific host; we didn’t arrive until 9pm but she met us at Stroud station to ensure we had no problems finding the place which is a comfortable stroll from the station. There were so many thoughtful touches in the flat. One big double bed plus the sofa bed best suited for a child but can accommodate an adult. The bathroom was fine; just watch your head on the way in and out it 6 foot plus ;). We didn’t use the big TV or the kitchen at all as we were only using Stroud as a base on this visit. Milk; teabags, a range of other hot drinks, biscuits etc all very welcome and thoughtful. I would love to return later in the year.

    Kerry2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • It was such a sweet space and made better by all the thoughtful touches. Really recommend if your staying in Stroud.

    Francesca2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • A well-located, well-equipped little bolthole with everything you need to explore Stroud/The Cotswolds plus great extras/touches and fast communication. Recommended.

    Adam2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed 2 nights for work trip. It is a lovely, cozy, homely place. Great location near town centre, little Co-op a few mins away for easentials. Hosts have made a huge effort to equip the place with lovely touches. I will be returning, any time I'm in Stroud. Exceeded my expectations.

    Naomi2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great, peaceful stay here, within easy reach from the centre of Stroud and even walkable to Slad and the famous Woolpack Inn. Oana was a super host and there is a great attention to detail in the flat.

    Ivan2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Stefan and Oana’s place. We didn’t have a car so Oana came and met us at the train station when we first arrived and walked us to the flat (about ten mins walk). The flat itself is small and cosy but not cramped - comfy beds and nice hot shower, little kitchen area with everything you need and a smart TV if you want to watch a movie or listen to music. We had lots of treats and snacks left out for us too :) Stroud is a great place for exploring the area and I would recommend spending a day walking around Slad Valley (following The Laurie Lee route for fans) as suggested by Oana - it was a lovely day. Thank you for having us! Chloe and Nick

    Chloe2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This Airbnb is incredibly convenient for Stroud and the area. It is cosy warm clean and tidy. The house really make you feel welcome with chocolate’s and even wine! The kitchen is well stocked with Useful stuff. As is the bathroom. We will be returning!

    Stroud, United Kingdom

    We have lived in Slad for 35 years, it is a beautiful place to visit at any time of the year - our guests can explore the lovely valley and surrounding countryside; we're two miles from Stroud. Cheltenham, Gloucester and the Cotswolds are within easy reach. We have really enjoyed being Airbnb hosts for over 5 years ; we have two rooms available with double beds (but also suitable for single visitors). We have a lovely, lively collie puppy Zelda, so are now getting lots of Slad walks too!
    Our room is a good size, light, with lovely views of the Slad Valley and is on the first floor. There is a comfortable double bed (4ft 6). On the ground floor is a newly refurbished shower/w.c. I am happy to provide breakfast - tea, coffee, juice and cereal/toast etc for a modest charge, and for guests to share our kitchen (by prior arrangement). Slad is a small village in the Cotswolds, two miles north of Stroud, set in a beautiful valley (as written about by Laurie Lee in Cider with Rosie - we are just across the road from Laurie's childhood home. There are fantastic walks from our front door, including the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way (a 5 mile trail with poetry posts) , and The Woolpack pub is just down the road which serves very good food (it is a good idea to book in advance as it is quite small). Stroud has a wonderful farmers’ market and thriving independent and vintage shops. Painswick (2 miles) is also worth a visit, and further afield are Gloucester (10 miles) and Cheltenham (12 miles) – for shops and horse racing. The various Cotswold villages are also within easy reach.
    Slad is famous for its association with Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee. That aside, it is a lovely place to visit in its own right, a stunning valley to explore and easy to get away from it all in beautiful scenery. Our local pub, The Woolpack, is just a few minutes' walk away (best to book if you wish to eat there), or Sheepscombe (the Butchers Arms) and Painswick are a short drive away for further eating choices. We are a couple of miles from the route of the Cotswold Way, and are happy to collect guests from Painswick (by prior arrangement).
  • A comfy bed in the home of a kind and helpful host. Great value considering how expensive this area is and how few budget options are available.

    Breningirl2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Comfy bed in the home of a very welcoming host. Nice views from the room. Good value considering that this is quite an expensive area.

    Breningirl2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Comfy bed. Lovely friendly host. Gorgeous puppy.

    Diana2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • A very welcoming,homely and comfortable 2 night stay.The bed was very comfortable with a lovely view over the valley.And Cathy was most welcoming and served a lovely breakfast with homemade bread. I'd thoroughly recommend this Air B&B to my friends and family.

    Carol2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Expect a warm welcome, a bit of a chat and stunning views! Both Cathy and Robin were friendly and made me feel at complete ease in their home. 100% recommend for your Cotswold break.

    Teniel2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great location for walkers, cyclists or just folks who appreciate a stunning English landscape.

    Edward2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • This was the fourth time we'd stayed with Cathy and Robin and - just like the previous occasions - we had a lovely, relaxing weekend. I can't really add much to what I've said in previous reviews (the location, amenities and hospitality are all top notch and those amazing views over the scenic Slad Valley live long in the memory) but the fact we always feel so sad to leave probably says it all. We're already planning our next visit...

The guest suite is absolutely perfect with a very sizeable room to sleep and relax in, a cosy kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, and grill, and a delightful bathroom with a lovely bath and generous bath products. We also had plenty of food provided for breakfast which was a lovely touch. We had an excellent stay in Painswick in Barbara’s lovely Home and look forward to staying there again.

    Caron2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • It was a beautiful apartment with wonderful views and perfect well located. It has everything we need plus extras in case you had forgotten something. Alayne and Marc make us feel secure and welcome. It was a pleasure to spend few days there. I would definitely come back. Bed super comfortable and very warm apartment. Thank you! I will leave there if I could :)

    Inmaculada2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • Alayne and Mac were amazing hosts, their place was very clean and tidy with all you will need to enjoy your stay at Fort Lee, we felt at home the second we arrived. You can see a lot of effort is put into making sure guests have a nice stay and they went the extra mile which is always appreciated. Me and my girlfriend would not hesitate to recommend a stay here.

    Joshua2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Thanks for making us feel so welcome at your beautiful place. You provided everything that we needed and we really felt at home. Easy walking distance of Stroud centre just down the hill. Great living space, we cooked a lot in the kitchen and slept well in a comfortable bed. Plenty of toiletries provided! Easy driving distance of some amazing country walks - Cranham woods and Cleeve Hill were our highlights. We would recommend visiting Stroud brewery for local ales and Toni’s Kitchen for amazing vegetarian/vegan food. Would highly recommend staying at Alayne and Mac’s beautiful place who were excellent hosts and helped us with anything we needed. Thanks!

  • We had a lovely peaceful stay at Luuks place . It was a luxury to have everything we needed in our own little private home space . Sleep is vital to me as my health isnt great . I was SO pleased that the curtains blocked out a lot of light , the bed was comfortable and the area was really quiet and peaceful while being really short walk from the town centre . The views are stunning from the flat and i got a good sense of stroud and the surrounding countryside from staying there which was important to me .

  • Great place to stay - lovely little cottage with good facilities. Nicely styled with lovely wooden beams in the ceilings and a great view across the fields and valley. It was very clean and Rebecca left the heaters on so it was warm when I arrived. Perfect stay.

    Lancelot2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for our needs. We had a function to attend in Stroud and this was in a great location. The host, Rebecca was there to greet us and ensure that we had everything we needed. Although the accommodation is within their grounds you have your own private drive and are surrounding by beautiful countryside. Would definitely stay here again when we are next in the area.

    Katie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z

Sam and Becca are super friendly and even brought around more wood for the log burner. The cottage has everything you’ll need for a weekend away. There’s lots of nice little touches that make this place special. We’d love to visit again!

    Danielle2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful little cottage that is perfect for a couple. It is wonderfully decorated and the use of space throughout makes the cottage seem much bigger than it is. The fire was lovely to relax by and we thoroughly enjoyed our time.

    Peter2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    Your accommodation is a single storey extension, to the side of my home, which I have completely modernised and refurbished. You have your own entrance via the back garden and the guest area is locked off from the rest of the house, to ensure guests' privacy. Self service breakfast of cereals and milk available plus tea and coffee facilities in your kitchenette. Own fridge, microwave, kettle, coffee maker and toaster, washing machine. Shared garden and patio with table and chairs.
    This little guest suite consists of a double bedroom with double bed (mattress is memory foam, medium firm), laptop desk and clothes hanging rail and drawers. You also have your own kitchenette containing fridge with ice box, microwave, kettle, toaster, cafetiere and crockery etc. There is also a washing machine you are welcome to use. Finally, you have your own newly fitted shower room with large shower, basin and toilet. Please note: I have made the additional guest option available at a surcharge of £10/night. Please note that the kitchenette only has a small breakfast bar and stool to seat one person. The accomodation is therefore only really suitable for two people if you just want a place to sleep.
    We live in a quiet, residential area surrounded by a wealth of footpaths which lead you through fields with wonderful views. You can walk into Stroud via various shortcuts, or up the hill into the village of Whiteshill where you will find a lovely pub called The Star and also a village shop (commuity run). Stroud itself is famous for it's Saturday morning farmers market and it's arty, crafty vibe with plenty happening in the local area and a good selection of restaurants, pubs and cafes. The Cotswold Way is, of course, also on the doorstep.
  • Stylish accommodation with everything you need to spend a few days. Everything very new and in a good location. Very clean and with a comfortable bed. Totally recommendable.

    Tranquil environment, 20 minutes walk from the town centre. As Stroud is fairly hilly, this is mainly uphill, for those who are daunted by such a prospect. There are also lovely walks just across the way and further afield. Beautiful views. And the walk back into town is downhill all the way.. There are various good walks locally in the Cotswolds. Beautiful views of the local environment from the garden out front Non-smoking, Alcohol free. This is a real haven and retreat from a busy world
    The environment is quiet and attractive. It is a small apartment, but spacious. It is particularly enjoyed by people who are looking for a retreat and some peace after a busy day. Breakfast is organic, special requests considered.
    There is a wonderful view towards the cemetery and The Heavens, beautiful sunsets and lovely walks can be taken there. There are also a few gardens one can enjoy while here.
  • Very stylish and ecologically minded space. Great chat with the host if you want it and very wholesome breakfast :D Good distance from Stroud city centre, great exercise if walking!

    David2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • Stylish and spotlessly clean home in a lovely situation. Sara Lea is a thoughtful hostess and respectful of her guests and their privacy. I would happily go again.

    Patricia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • The location was perfect as it was walking distance to nature walks and easily accessible by foot to town. It was so nice to have a break from the city and hear owls at night! The bed is quite hard which some people love, I slept well. Sara was calm and thoughtful and is a great host with a quick response on my last minute booking.

    Sarah Jane2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sara-Lea is a great host. Welcoming and helpful. The accommodation is clean and quiet in a great location a short walk into town. Excellent organic breakfast too.

  • I had such a lovely time staying with Sara-Lea in Stroud! Her place on the hill is just brilliant for having a quiet night, stunning view but so close to the village center and going out for dinner. Breakfast was amazing, bread, cereals, fresh fruit, egg.. Best on my whole journey! Can only recommend for discovering Stroud and the Cotswolds!

    In the centre of beautiful Minchinhampton, this detached cosy cottage is open plan in design and tastefully renovated throughout with plenty of modern conveniences. Set in a quiet pretty garden, and with on site parking + Type 2 EV charger, this is a great getaway. Currently and until further notice COVID19 means only key workers can book this for self isolating purposes. up to the end of June 2020. This may change to reflect government action.
    The Coach House is a beautifully converted 16th century stables with modern open plan living embedded in a classic Cotswold cottage garden setting. We are in the centre of the charming village of Minchinhampton with its beautiful church with quirky crown capped spire and Cotswold stone as far as the eye can see. Arriving by car or train we can assist with on site parking or "Tesla taxi" service from Stroud station. After entering via a well gravelled path, with a courtyard style seating area, fine weather affords a beautiful al fresco table adjacent to your front door and looks onto the raised bed paved garden with a hammock available for watching the sun setting through the beech trees. Too breezy? you are welcome to enjoy a glass inside our conservatory, which catches the evening sun, (like the garden, this space is shared with us in the main house) .
    The Old Swan Coach House is in the middle of the picturesque village of Minchinhampton. Visitors are generally delighted by the established Cotswold village feel, (this is an organically grown village, not a 2nd home centre) and its location for walks and the wider area attractions is considered a massive selling point. It is perhaps why Princess Anne chose the adjacent Gatcombe estate for her wonderful residence. Minchinhampton Common is a few minutes walk and provides a wonderful "big sky" airy clean open space for an early morning or evening walk. During the summer months it also supplies a procession of cows, some of which may occasionally wander past the house and up the high street. The common offers a wonderful, 130 years established, golf course that gives you the chance to observe skylarks, Adonis Blue butterflies, and a range of orchids on this ancient National Trust meadow land. I am a lapsed member and enjoyed the views and the natural hazards in equal measure. It is open to visitors and affords a kind of inland links course with no sand but plenty of natural hazards. https://minchinhamptonoldcourse.intelligentgolf.co.uk A visit to the common often includes sampling the delicious Winstones Ice cream that is made right there on the edge, just near the Bear of Rodborough "chicane". Nearby Stroud offers the award winning Farmer's Market every Saturday and a range of quirky "Stroudy" shops and people watching opportunities. Until November 2019 the Crown, Minchinhampton's only central pub was closed for 6 years and eating places required a drive for evening meals. Since November 8th the new owners, the Lucky Onion group, offer excellent dining and a welcoming pub. This is now a busy godsend to locals and visitors alike. Currently for the Crown, every night and lunch, and for most other restaurants within nearby range, for the busier weekends of the year, booking is mostly required. (Advice on request). Henry's Cafe and Peter and Assumpta's The Kitchen are in friendly competition for great local cafe coffee and light bites - both a very short walk from us in the high street. The Church is active and well liked, it has been recently reordered with underfloor heating and much more, and has an active bell ringing team. Practice is on Friday evenings starting at 8:00 and the Bells are quite likely to wake those sleeping in on a Sunday morning. Cheltenham racecourse being reasonably nearby, booking for Festival week (2nd week of March) needs good advance planning. Our local version of smart pricing applies. Minchinhampton is possibly most well known for the residence of Princess Anne whose annual Festival of Eventing in August https://www.festivalofbritisheventing.com/ attracts visitors from far and wide to Gatcombe. Around that time Minchinhampton hosts, longer than anywhere else, the marvellous Giffords Circus. It has been featured on the list of 50 things you must see before you die and brings crowds from miles around to the big top on the common. https://www.giffordscircus.com/ The National Trust owned Common is famous for its rare breed cows grazing from April to November and the beautiful "big sky" walks are a home to many a high flying skylark and the rare Adonis butterfly. The 130 year old Golf Club and the Old Lodge are popular spots situated in the middle of the common - all our local pubs are welcoming and worth a visit. Also visible throughout the year are gliders from the two astonishingly close local clubs, http://www.cotswoldgliding.co.uk/holiday_courses (where I learned to fly) and https://bggc.co.uk/ The views over the Cotswold edge can be stunning and the costs much lower than most imagine. (trial flights start from £95) From the Cirencester road to Minch, as you turn in to Aston Down airfield is "Jolly Nice" a fast growing organic shop and eatery that now occupies three yurts. The ice cream is superb and the speciality delicatessen has the best quality produce and fantastic gifts (at a price!) https://jollynicefarmshop.com/ Westonbirt Arboretum is a popular all year round visitor attraction just 9 miles to the south of us. Every Saturday the lively alternative scene that is Stroud Town hosts the oldest established Farmer's market, just 4 miles down in the valley. It is also a centre for every type of artist and alternative health practitioner.
  • Pat and Katrina were very welcoming hosts. The Coach House is a really lovely little place to get away to for the weekend and we only wish we could hide from the Corona Virus there forever. The local town is lovely and there’s a great butchers around the corner that sell the best duck eggs we’ve tasted. Thanks for a great weekend!

The cottage is very homely with all the amenities guests require provided i.e. shampoo, conditioner, tea, coffee etc. The cottage was very clean and warm and a good base for driving to do walks around the Cotswolds in the daytime. I would highly recommend staying here!

    Tim2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Any visitor to Stroud really needs to visit the Farmers Market on Saturday morning for takeaway food/ food stalls. Its been voted the best local market in the UK. Stroud is very much the country version of alternative places such as Camden or Shoreditch- it’s a quirky, quixotic, bohemian town with very strong community roots and local free trade shops including art and vintage shops. It has a HUGE amount of artists living in and around the environs. It was voted as one of Britains best places to live in a recent Sunday times article. Stroud is indeed, incredibly special and definitely embodies the hidden bohemian more authentic experience of the Cotswolds. There are always festivals or events, from literature, art to theatre taking place throughout the year. The many mills are part of Stroud’s Industrial Past and house a bustle of workspace sharing co-operatives, artists studios, vintage shops, upholstery and jewellery making workshops. Many guests visit to take part in these workshops to experience this rich arts and crafts heritage. A short 10 minute walk from the house is a wonderfully authentic real ale typically British pub called ‘The Crown and Sceptre’- call in for a great Sunday roast. Other notable nearby establishments to visit are The Subscription Rooms, Giffords Circus, Westonbirt Arboretum, Stroud Valley Artspace, Pangolin Gallery, Hawkwood College (for workshops). Minchinhampton Common is a beautiful common ground area where cattle roam freely across the roads and amongst golfers There are many walks right from the doorway of the house. The Heavens is one beautiful area to explore as is the Stroud micro Brewery Walks to Rodborough Common across the Valley with great views of the river Severn and Wales and a visit to Winstones Ice Cream factory is a must. The Cotswold Way is near by, as are walks to Slad to visit the Woolpack, frequented by the famous author Laurie Lee. For those requiring a flatter walk – take in the beautifully restored Cotswold Canals with access from the towpath to unique pubs and cafes. Painswick, the queen of the Cotswolds, Tetbury, Cirencester, Cheltenham, Bath and Bristol are also definitely worth a visit and are all within easy driving distance from Stroud.
  • Abi’s place is as lovely as she is, a natural host she makes you welcome from the minute you arrive and provides everything you need in her stylish home. I feel I made a friend as well as a regular place to stay in Bohemian Stroud!

    Lesley2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Abi is amazing- so kind and helpful. I had booked last minute for a lady in distress who turned out to have a lot of problems but Abi offered a safe haven, wonderful deep bath with endless bubbles and popped out to the shop specially to buy her favourite cereal. The place is comfortable and welcoming and of course Berkeley the basset hound is totally adorable!

  • Lovely modern house with old touches. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Abi was a great host - she is highly enthuasiastic about Stroud and the town surprised us with how much it had going on! She had lots of tips on places to visit and had really thought through the extra touches in the room. Nice location with views into the surrounding valley. Plenty to explore in Stroud and the surrounding area. Thank you for a great stay!

  • Beautiful house! Very airy and spacious on a quiet road! Exactly what we needed coming from busy London! Abi has been very helpful and hands on from the beginning of booking, very prompt replies and in great detail! She also provides toiletries and towels as well as some breakfast options, note they are sourced from local farmers, that jam with toast was absolute delight! The house is located up to 20min by walk from Stroud town centre, with markets on hand and also bars and restaurants for the evening. Abi gave us some great local recommendations! Bed is super comfortable and house is very very clean, she also has a lovely and very friendly dog (he never barks) that is more than eager to play :)! Great weekend away and I would definitely recommend staying at Abi's place.

  • Abi is a wonderful host. From detailed instructions for locating her place to flexible checking in, she goes out of her way to make her guests feel welcome. The house is spacious, tastefully decorated, and has all the amenities one can ask for. Abi adds a personal touch to the room providing tea/coffee, candies, and even wine. The surroundings are picturesque and it's a perfect retreat for those looking to get away from the bustle of city life. An added bonus is Abi's vast knowledge of the area and her willingness to guide her guests. We will cherish the conversations we had with her. Best wishes, Rashmi and Arnab

Clean, spotless, neat and quiet!!!!  Heating system and hot water awesome, a pleasure arriving home after driving around on winter.  Located in a strategic zone to explore the entire Cotswolds.

  • We loved our stay here. It was really cosy with lovely underfloor heating. It had everything we needed for a New Year getaway. We cooked a couple of meals: the oven was good and a double hob and decent-sized kitchen was handy. There’s a pub virtually at the end of the drive, and a corner shop open until 9pm. We can also recommend the Jolly Fryer chippy half a mile away!

    Louise2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Cedars Retreat is a lovely, comfortable and independent apartment for staying in the Cotswolds. Karen is very responsive and has made a very welcoming place to stay. The apartment is clean, has just about everything you’d need and the location is great too. I highly recommend staying here.

    Melody2019-12-03T00:00:00Z

    Jasenka2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Cedars retreat was a lovely, peaceful stay for me and my small family whilst on a work course nearby. It’s a lovely hideaway from the main roads whilst still being in a great location to local amenities and walks. We had a lovely comfortable stay and enjoyed the space. It had everything we would need and will definitely recommend to friends and family when in the area.

  • Arriving late on a Tuesday evening we were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen stocked with snacks. The cheapest is lovely and cosy and the hosts stay out of your way until and if you need them. Best place we have stayed at.

    Great views, walks and cycle rides in nearby AONB fields & woods, the 'Cotswold Way' long distance path, old Randwick village, Stroud town & the River Severn. This newly-built annex is light, warm, has high ceilings, comfortable bed and a very adequate kitchen for self-catering. Good for singles or couples, we could also accommodate a child or dog.
    Built-up area below the annex, AONB above, in the form of fields & woods. Be prepared for some slopes & small hills if you walk in these areas. Premier stores half a mile away, Co-op supermarket a mile. Vine Tree pub is near at hand & does decent food.
  • Great spot and perfect little place to stay with great host.

    Ross2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely location and lovely annex to stay in. Vernon was very welcoming and showed us a local dog walk when we arrived. Perfect for our springer to stretch his legs after a few hours in the car. The annex is fully equipped with everything we needed for a peaceful few days away.

    Jenny2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place, Vernon was very fast at communicating and very helpful with timings. The house was clean and perfect for a couple with dogs. It is a really scenic place and the snowdrops only the room were a really nice touch.

    Henry2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for money, everything you need as a bolt hole. Lovely views. Pub 2 min walk up the road, not far out of Stroud, but roads a windy and can be a bit tight. Only thing to note that there are about 8 steps down to the Annex. I was recovering from an Op, vernon and his wife Betsy kindly helped me with my belongings. Vernon even brought some fresh eggs from their chickens which are just in front of the Annex.

    Amanda2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Rapid response to enquiries,warm and helpful welcome. Plenty of advice on local walks/pubs/lots of local guidance. The Annex is a separate independent building with all that you would need for a few days quiet break. There is an excellent pub a few minutes walk away with good food ,beer and welcoming owner.

    Steve And Jo2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very friendly owner, nice accommodation with accurate description, lovely area for beautiful walks and views. Me, my girlfriend, and dog loved it.

The room was bright and airy. Very relaxing, inviting and friendly. I hope I need to travel back that way, as I will definitely be looking to stay again.

    A truly idyllic place to get away from it all. Venturing out you will find a variety of things to do on your door step. Walking is exceptionally popular in the area due to the traditional looking villages and great local charm. While you’re out and about why not visit The Woolpack pub which is known locally as one of the best pubs in the Cotswolds and is famous for being frequented by Laurie Lee. Valley Barn is on the Laurie Lee Wildlife Way and a map is available within the property. Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust owns four beautiful nature reserves in the Slad Valley called Frith Wood Snows Farm Swifts Hill and thanks to a very successful fundraising appeal the new Laurie Lee Wood. The Laurie Lee Wildlife Way takes in all four Nature Reserves and the trail is marked by wooden posts carved with the famous authors poems. People come from all over Europe to see the beauty of these valleys. If you fancy going a little further afield you will find Tetbury, Cirencester, Cheltenham with its regency charm, as well as Stroud, Painswick, Gloucester and the rest of the Cotswolds right on your doorstep
    Inside the property I have laminated details of all facilities you may need during your stay and my recommended restaurants. I think Westonbirt Arboretum is a lovely place to visit most times of the year and dogs are welcome there.
  • Great place, amazing views and nice walks
