Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Trillgate Farm is a Cotswolds' farmhouse that has so much charm and character that you'd almost imagine you had seen it in a magazine. The property is a beautiful rambling Cotswolds' country home with lovely large rooms making it suitable for either a family get-together or a place where friends can easily enjoy a weekend away. The house is presented very much as a home rather than a holiday house which gives it a unique feel and appeal. Outside the property has a glorious 'Cotswold Garden' with terrace, orchard and large grounds beyond, all enjoying stunning views across the area commonly described as 'Laurie Lee Country'. This property is very much a 'home from home' and thus retains many of the owners' touches. A unique Cotswold house this most certainly is!

The Central England/Cotswolds region
Trillgate Farm is located just outside Slad, a small village deep in the southern Cotswolds an area often felt to be the most attractive part of the entire Cotswolds' region. It is about two miles from the working town of Stroud and similarly from the picture postcard town (big village actually!) of Painswick.
Slad is perhaps most famous for being the home (and final resting place) of Laurie Lee, who based his book Cider with Rosie on his own life in the village and the surrounding countryside. The village lies in the rolling hills of the Cotswolds, and is built principally on the B4070 road from Stroud to Birdlip, which is halfway up one side of Slad Valley. The Slad Brook runs along the bottom of the valley.
There is a small parish church in the village, and a small traditional pub, the Woolpack, where we would heartily recommend a visit and a drink! Although you are in the southern Cotswold hills, you are very convenient for Cheltenham and Cirencester plus more of the Cotswold's delightful villages. As you would expect, there are many places to visit near by including Painswick Rococo Gardens (3 miles), Prinknash Abbey (4miles) and Westonbirt Arboretum (15miles) all of which are worthe a trip.
