Hope Cottage is a charming 18th Century detached property in the hillside village of France Lynch in the South Cotswolds. Sitting in its own private south-facing garden, this romantic cottage has wonderful views across the valley, with excellent walking and plenty of interesting places to visit. The cottage is newly refurbished and combines period charm - oak beams and exposed stone walls - with modern conveniences. On sunny evenings nothing can beat sitting out in the garden, or watching the birds fly down the valley from the upstairs picture window in the large landing area, while downstairs the woodburner keeps the chill away on winter evenings. There is a great little pub at the end of the lane and numerous others within easy reach. The towns of Cirencester and Stroud - with its famous Farmers Market - are within a 15 minute drive, and other local attractions include the Rococo Gardens at Painswick, Prinknash Abbey, Westonbirt Arboretum, antique shopping in Tetbury, Slad Valley - the inspiration behind Laurie Lee's 'Cider with Rosie', Woodchester Park Mansion and Gloucester Cathedral and Docks. Cheltenham provides good shopping and a wealth of bars, cafes and restaurants, as well as its renowned Races and Literary and Music Festivals, while the cities of Bath, Bristol and Oxford are easily accessible for a day trip.

The Central England/Cotswolds region

The South Cotswolds is a well-kept secret - within a 45-minute drive of the better-known 'honeypot' Cotswolds towns of Stow on the Wold, Burford, Bibury and Moreton-in-the-Marsh, but without the tourist coaches and hordes of amateur photographers! This is a beautiful part of the world, full of hidden valleys and scenic countryside, with pretty little towns, charming villages, and a profusion of narrow lanes and dry stone walls. There are Farmers markets in Cirencester and Stroud, dozens of antique shops in Tetbury and olde world charm in Nailsworth and Painswick, all of which boast numerous excellent pubs, restaurants and cafes. In less than an hour you can also be in Bath, Bristol or Cheltenham to shop, eat or take in some city culture!


France Lynch is a hillside village between Stroud and Cirencester. It isn't on the way to anywhere, so it's quiet, self contained and the perfect spot to spend a restful or romantic break. There are some great walks direct from the door - many of which pass, or end up at, a good pub - and if walking seems too strenuous there is a great little pub just a few minutes away at the end of the lane.
