Welcome to Littledene in Sheepscombe, Gloucestershire; a stylish and well presented self catering Cotswolds holiday rental, offering bright and spacious accommodation boasting spectactular views across the valley to Painswick the 'Queen of the Cotswolds'. Sheepscombe is a quintessential Cotswold village set in an enchanting valley in England's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.

This seculded holiday home, a superbly appointed detached property, lies at the mouth of a narrow valley hidden behind the Cotswold escarpment one of the most picturesque and unspoilt locations in England. The Sheepscombe valley was once part of a Royal Deer Park for King Henry VIII and the village has it's origins in the seventeenth century.

The village of Sheepscombe nestles at the head of the valley sheltered by ancient beech woodlands, boasting glorious views, fantastic walks and the award winning Butcher's Arms, a wonderfully friendly pub is just a pleasureable 10/15 minute walk though pastureland from Littledene.

Littledene is in a fantastic location, isolated in a truly romantic setting just over half a mile from the centre of Sheepscombe village.

Littledene is available for Holiday rentals and short breaks all year.

The Cotswolds is designated as England's largest 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' with spectacular and breathtaking scenery - as an area it's 100 miles north to south, with gently rolloing countryside of hills and steep valleys, pictureque stone villages that are often referred to as the 'Undiscovered Cotswolds'.

Villages such as Painswick cling to steep-sided valleys, old woollen mills can be found alongside the streams, and commons stretch across the hilltops at Minchinhampton and Selsley. Nearby Slad was the setting for the author and poet Laurie Lee's book 'Cider with Rosie'.

The Cotswold Way passes through the AONB and the Wysis Way, an 88 km walking route passing through the woods behind. It is possible to walk along the Stroudwater Canal. Woodchester Mansion, Owlpen Manor, Painswick Rococo Garden and Misarden Park Gardens are all within easy reach of Stroud. The town is served by trains from London Paddington.

Here in the South West Cotswolds the area has a denser woodland and a wilder nature, especially in the five valleys around Stroud which Sheepscombe is considered to be a hidden gem. Undulating areas of pasture land and ancient woodland make this unspoilt valley unique. Boasting 140 designated footpaths from lesiurely strolls through the woods to steep climbs with wonderful views are a wonder not to be missed. You will be away from the crowds of tourists you find in the north Cotswolds and you will feel like you have discovered something special.

There are endless great walks, picnic sites and views.
