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.

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.

"Excellent value, lovely location!"
We had a three night stay at Autumn cottage which was in the lovely village of Painswick. The accommodation is of a high standard containing everything you need, except a dishwasher, which wasn't essential. The bedrooms were comfy and very pretty, although the top bedroom in the eves of the cottage was quite warm at night but the weather was exceptionally hot!
We all enjoyed our stay - thank you Chrissie.

"Better for 2 than 4"
I bumped my head, repeatedly, on all 3 doors from the lounge. Change of levels through a low doorway, no warning notices and no padding. The upstairs loo only disposes of liquids, we booked in part a… More

"A lovely, well looked after cottage"
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.

"Beautiful, cosy cottage in the Cotswold country side."
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.

"fantastic cottage in a beautiful village"
Stayed here for a winter break in January with my husband. The cottage was warm and welcoming and had a very romantic bedroom designed with lovely fabrics and antiques.
Welcome pack on arrival and lots of info on local area. Painswick is a beautiful old Cotswold village with some lovely little shops, restaurants/pubs and narrow streets to explore, once we were there we didn't really use our car as there was so much to do on the doorstep. The countryside was stunning and there were so many local walks and lovely places to visit.
We ate out a couple of times but then had dinner in the well equipped kitchen followed by a DVD in the cosy lounge with an amazing open fire. Can't wait to come back again in the summer.

"Gorgeous cottage, lovely location, friendly and helpful owner."
We really enjoyed our short stay at the lovely Autumn Cottage. It's been fitted out really well and felt so warm, cosy and homely- a real home from home. There were lots of really thoughtful touches- the owner had left a light and the heating on for arrival and a lovely welcome pack, lots of nice fluffy towels etc. Particularly loved the fantastic fire- perfect on a chilly evening. The description was very accurate and we had been warned about the steep stairs. I would take note of this as they really were incredibly steep and not carpeted, so whilst I would love to return as a couple, the owner is right in saying it isn't really suitable for young children. We found lots to explore locally though and would highly recommend Autumn Cottage as a place to base yourself.

"Great Cottage - Thoughtful Owner!"
The thoughtful owner met us at the cottage and showed us round. There was a generous welcome pack and the cottage was very clean and comprehensively equipped with every convenience we could have wanted, all good quality. The cottage decor was attractive and the furniture and fittings were well chosen. We were particularly glad to have WiFi. Painswick village deserves to be called "the Queen of the Cotswolds" - a very peaceful and attractive village, and convenient for Cheltenham and the countryside alike. We hope to stay at Autumn Cottage again.
