Stonecutters Cottage - Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, The Cotswolds, England - Sleeps 5
Stonecutters Cottage sleeps five guests and is situated on a quiet lane with delightful views across the valley. Sensitively restored, it provides comfortable self-catering accommodation with a contemporary twist whilst still retaining original character with its wooden beams, exposed stone and thick walls. Central heating and a gas fired woodstove make for a cosy amd snug interior all year round. Wi-Fi is also included.
Less busy than some of the Cotswold honeypots, the cottage sits in the Five Valleys which has a rugged beauty with high commons, secret valleys dotted with stone cottages, unspoilt villages, market towns and breathtaking views all around. Here you can walk freely over large expanses of protected National Trust land and explore the unspoilt villages and market towns and countryside by foot. The area is a walkers’ paradise with an abundance of footpaths that criss-cross the valleys allowing you to enjoy country walks from the front door.
There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy locally such as golf on the common (try to avoid the cows grazing the greens!), mountain biking, horse riding, cycling and gliding. Why not enjoy the excitement of Cheltenham Racecourse or visit one of the many attractions including the WW Trust reserve at Slimbridge, Westonbirt Arboretum, The Gloucestershire Warwickshire railway, Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park and Gloucester historic Docks.
Nailsworth is just a ten minute walk away and is a small, vibrant town with a good selection of independent shops, supermarket, three pubs and several good restaurants. There are also plenty of other great places to eat, in and around the area, where you can sample the local produce including Gloucester Old Spot bacon, ale brewed in Stroud and Uley Breweries, Winstones ice cream, Woefuldane cheese and bread from artisan bakers.
With Bath and Bristol within easy reach and under an hour by car, you will not be short of things to do!
