A spacious one bedroom coach house in the South Cotswolds. Just completed and furnished to a high standard. Lovely views across the Nailsworth valley. The Retreat is close to the historic city of Bath (20 miles) and cosmopolitan Cheltenham town (15 miles) as well as the beautiful old Cotswold/roman town of Cirencester.

Located on the trail of the famous Cotswold way the Retreat is within easy access to many stunning views and walks. If you enjoy cycling or rambling through beautiful countryside whilst being close to good restaurants and charming shops Nailsworth is the perfect place for a short break.

The Retreat is located a short 5 minute walk from the centre of the popular 'five valleys' town of Nailsworth which boasts a good number of great quality restaurants. Alternatively hop in a car and you are easily within reach of many country pubs and restaurants within Stroud's five valleys.

For golfers there are a number of good quality golf courses near by in Minchinhampton and Wotton all boasting spectacular views across the Severn Valley and beyond to the Welsh Mountains.

You can enjoy the weekly award winning farmers market in nearby Stroud: or take a walk along the canal which in its heyday was the artery between the Severn and the Thames and is currently subject to significant development to restore it to it's former glory.

Other attractions include; hot-air ballooning, gliding lessons, art courses and horse riding. The area is very popular with eventing having Gatcombe Park (2 miles) and Badminton (7 miles) close at hand. Cheltenham races are also a great day out and easily accessed by train or car. If open air concerts are your thing then performances at Westonbirt Arboretum are a great way to spend an evening. Enjoy an abundance of natural wildlife; as well as the local cows grazing freely on the common lands, the world famous Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust is a 15 minute drive by car. There is so much going on locally you really can enjoy a varied and fascinating stay without going more than a few minutes from the doorstep.

Tetbury (5 miles) is the perfect place for antique shopping and people watching while the sleepy village of Amberly enjoys tranquil views across the buccolic valleys of the area.

Enjoy breath taking views on the top of the world, hanging out with the cows while enjoying the taste sensation that is Winstones Ice Cream

"Fantastic accomodation"

The self-contained holiday let was a fantastic place to stay. It has every modern convenience to make your stay a home away from home.
The quality of the furnishings and bedding was great and well laid out in the property.
The hosts were helpful but unobtrusive. They had a good deal of local knowledge if you needed that kind of information. Fortunately, we had prior knowledge so didn't need any help as such.
Parking was always available, which is great in this area when parking can be an issue for locals and visitors. The town of Nailsworth, is only a short walk from the property and has various amenities. I would recommend William's kitchen on the corner of Springhill....a breakfast to die for!!
I would thoroughly recommend anyone wanting a peaceful a nd relaxing holiday / trip to stay here
