About the home
Autumn Cottage has been lovingly renovated to provide rustic chic accommodation. Perfect for romantic lovers or city dwellers who are looking to escape to a peaceful and tranquil area with lots of local attractions which will suit everyone's needs. The cottage is the middle terrace of a row of traditional Cotswold stone cottages in a quiet no-through road.
Just a few minutes from the Cotswold Way and Painswick Golf course, it provides the perfect haven for walkers and golfers. Trout fishing and horse riding are available at neighbouring villages.
Painswick is a town that contains many notable houses built in the prosperous seventeenth century and has lots of little streets to explore and quaint shops to discover. Tucked away in the narrow lanes you will find several Award Winning Restaurants, pubs and tea shops offering a range of cuisines which will not disappoint.
On the outskirts of the town the well known Rococo Gardens can be found in a hidden 6 acre valley. The gardens are the last sole survivor from the brief early 18th century period of English Rococo Garden design.
Painswick lies between the former woollen town of Stroud, the cathedral city of Gloucester and its docks and the regency town of Cheltenham with its theatres, restaurants and shops. You can choose to enjoy the city scene or if you prefer, you can chill by strolling to the local pub and enjoying the local cuisine or a Sunday lunch in front of a roaring log fire with a glass or two of local real ale. You can always stagger home!!
Autumn Cottage provides a charming boutique style home, creating a perfect holiday base to explore the lovely Cotswold Villages and towns.
Shops, pubs and restaurants are all within walking distance in the narrow, winding streets of Painswick.
The property has full central heating, and an Inglenook fireplace in lounge for cosy evenings.

This is a very nice cottage to stay in; tastefully furnished with good quality items, well eqiuipped and very comfortable. The owner takes great care to ensure all is OK for you and provides a generous welcome pack of cereal, bread etc. It is in a quiet location up the hill from Painswick centre and near the recocco gardens. The Cotswold Way and other walks are right on the doorstep. There's a parking space that would probably fit two small cars and a small sitting area round the back. The stairs to the bedrooms (especially the top one) are very steep and a bit precarious so it's not suitable for the not so nimble or for kids - but we found it added to the charm. The only improvement we could recommend is better quality mattresses but overall this is one of the best cottages we have stayed in and we would recommend it.
Thank you so much for your positive review. I do hope you will come back and stay with us again. We will look at the Mattress issue and either purchase a new bed or a new mattress. Thank you for pointing out this as an improvement we could make. We will try to resolve as quickly as possible.

Fantastic cottage, very tastefully furnished with quality pieces. A lovely mix of old and new. The cottage was warm and cosy even on a very cold March weekend. Equipped with everything you need when self-catering. It is ideally situated to explore the Cotswolds. The Rococo Gardens in Painswick are well worth a visit especially at snowdrop time. Had an excellent meal at the Falcon Inn. Lots of lovely walks. Would definately return.
