Beautiful calm location in Mews five minutes from the centre of Minchinhampton, Glos. Brand new three bed house - two bedrooms available; the main bedroom has an en-suite bathroom. The second bathroom has a bath. The second bedroom contains a sofa bed which is firm but comfortable as I am told by my friends and family. Light, spacious, full of character and unique because it is so warm! The kitchen is open plan with dining area and sofa, with French windows leading onto the terrace. Carpeted throughout, full library of books.
No TV - bring a laptop, as we have ethernet cables in every room and there are some DVDs. Also a stereo, modest music collection (Bossa Nova kind of vibe) and a tuned Broadwood and White piano are in the sitting room, where the sofa is covered by a super sized sheepskin rug.
Stroud's Apollo cinema, or Wotton Under Edge's Electric Cinema or many walks are nearby and great shopping in Nailsworth! I am in the process of making it mine with beautiful touches, the odd antique and bright colours - so the space is still in its infancy, but very cosy and relaxing all the same. There is off-street parking for two cars to the front of the house. At the back there is a garden with a terrace. There is a residential cat called Tilly who will round off your welcome to perfection.
Minchinhampton town centre, a five minute walk away, is situated in the heart of Gloucestershire and has The Kitchen, a very good cafe/restaurant, as well as Sophie's French Restaurant, Woefuldane Organic Dairy selling home-made cheeses, milk, bread, butter and coffee. It has two great charity shops for a rummage (girls!), hairdressers, beauty salon, chemist, pub, shop, butcher, beautiful church, (full of incense on a Sunday) and on the edge of one of the few commons in the country where cattle and horses graze half of the year.
Minchinhampton is tiny and slightly medieval-looking and near other idyllic villages all accessible on foot, like Box, Nailsworth and Amberley (Black Horse Pub)! The town feels medieval, and is a feast to the eyes. It borders royalty! Nearby is Stroud, host to the first organic coffee shop in the UK, which represents Stroud's ethos, all about local food, artesan crafts, transition green town with plenty of Art, live music (Stroud valley Art Space) fun pubs (The Albert) to carouse the night away and tranquil places like Ruskin Mill where you can walk by trout ponds and enjoy beautiful gardens.
Cirencester nearby is also rich in heritage; it is often referred to as the 'Capital of the Cotswolds' and was the second largest town in Britain during Roman times. There's the Corinium Museum, a traditional outdoor pool from May to September, and local markets in Cirencester and Stroud. Oxford is an hour away , Bristol 45 mins, Cheltenham 35 mins, London 2 hours to Hammersmith.
For those peope hunting the next crop circle, I am forty minutes from Avebury and the main area worldwide for these incredible phenomena. Come and See! (www.temporarytemples.com)
