House | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 11
Painswick, an historic wool town known as the Queen of the Cotswolds, nestles quietly in the beautiful hills of south Gloucestershire. The Lantern is at the end of a private road to the south, with stunning views over the rolling countryside and the Cotswold Way passing its front gate. The large country garden surrounding this detached holiday house has a generous gravelled area for parking and a variety of lawns, grassy areas with paths, shrubs, flower beds and a small orchard. A number of patio areas around the house offer different prospects. The tranquillity and peace of Painswick itself, its delightful small shops, varied dining possibilities and historic pubs, yet proximity to the many delights of Cheltenham and Gloucester and the surrounding areas make it undoubtedly a village for all seasons. Town centre with famous church and yew trees 600 yards. Shops, pub and restaurant 600 yards.

The Central England/Cotswolds region
The Cotswolds are famous for their beautiful rolling hills and honey-coloured Cotswold stone houses - The Lantern is on the famous walking route 'The Cotswold Way' which stretches from Chipping Campden to Bath.
The house is right on the edge of the gorgeous village of Painswick - far enough to have fantastic views of the countryside, but only a 5 minute walk across a field and through the village to the nearest shops and pub. Great walking, several idyllic pubs in walking distance, including Slad, which Laurie Lee wrote of in 'Cider with Rosie'.
