Cottage | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Grist Mill is an early 18th Century watermill hidden at the bottom of the Owlpen valley, deep in the Southern edge of The Cotswolds. It is a 'listed' historic building, completely restored to provide wonderfully unique holiday cottage accommodation. Contemporary in comfort and style, the whole building is like a time warp, with unrivalled character and charm.
There are many period features within the property, including beams and period furniture. Outside are the gigantic mill wheel and millpond - a haven for wild life. There are a Post Office/village shop, two pubs, a brewery and an arts centre in Uley approx half a mile away.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds are one of the most ‘quintessential English’ regions in the UK.
It is officially designated as the country’s largest ‘areas of outstanding natural beauty’. Famous for its hillsides, river valley’s and Cotswold Stone Villages, the Cotswolds hold a wealth of history, stunning scenery, fine dining and many varieties of activities for all age levels.
Owlpen has long been recognised as one of England's most romantic locations. Today the Tudor Manor House, Owlpen Manor (1450-1616), stands within a formal garden of magnificent yews and at the centre of a clutch of beautiful medieval and traditional buildings, many of which have been recently converted into exceptional Cotswold holiday cottages. The whole estate, steeped in a thousand years of history, forms its own remote and picturesque wooded valley under the edge of the Cotswold hills in the south-west of England.
