HILLCREST COTTAGE interior has been lovingly furnished by the Designer owner. The kitchen/dining area is spacious and well equipped, but with quirky twists bought from local vintage markets mixing old with the new. The log burner in the lounge adds a cosy glow on winters evenings, while the BBQ terrace enjoys the last of the day sunshine.

The main bedroom has double doors opening onto a balcony where you can enjoy the sun or sparkling lights along the valley by night -"ROMANTIC HEAVEN" . The cottage is characterful and welcoming, well equipped and well loved! Well behaved children are welcome but they must be supervised at all times.

2 BEDROOMS

The main bedroom is spacious with a kingsize bed with pocket sprung mattress, a 5 seater corner sofa and tv area with double patio doors out onto the balcony with those glorious views.

The smaller twin bedded room also has pocket sprung mattresses for comfort and a good nights sleep. It feels light and airy and has window views .

BATHROOM

It is isnt large but it does have a shaped bath to accommodate an over shower and has a curved glass splash panel a toilet and basin and a table for flanels etc.

KITCHEN /DINING

The open plan kitchen /dining area is spacious, making it pleasurable to cook and be sociable at the same time. Dishwasher , microwave , toaster, full size fridge and freezer, washing machine ,cooker, hand held whisk, iron etc etc... all the equipment to would expect with out being a slave to the kitchen! Spacious eating area for up to 6( if you have friends joining you in the day) The VIEWS are out of the double patio doors and front door onto to a well kept garden and magnificent views beyond....lovely with doors open in the summer.

LOUNGE

The lounge has seating for 4.

It has log burner and we provide the 1st bag of brickets from October to April. The cottage has central heating too.

There is a TV with freeview , ipod docking station and shared wifi available.

GARDEN

The guests garden is infront of the cottage, as seen in the pictures and ends at the edge of the BBQ terrace.

The garden is mainly "decorative" so we ask that football and cricket etc be played in the lovely childrens park, 3 minutes walk away( with zip wire).

Location description from owner

The Cotswolds region

It is not surprising that this area is home to Prince Charles at Highgrove, and Princess Ann just a walk away at Gatcombe Park in some of the most beautiful countryside in Gloucestershire. Known as the undiscovered Cotswolds , this area of the Cotswolds is known as a well kept secret , cherished by those who live here and loved by those who experience it.! A very arty ecclectic mix of people live here and those with an entreprenurial spirit .. you never know what amazing small business you may find tucked away. STEPPING OUT for a walk to the 600 acres of NT common land where cows roam freely from May to October across the public golf course too..

The STUNNING VIEWS everywhere will just dominate your stay, none more than from the cottage itself .

An excellen choice of good EATING OUT in pub/restaurants with open fires and a very friendly community to welcome you. Loads of my personal jottings about where to go locally for eating ,drinking ,walking, visiting in the cottage with loads of pics....When the canal eventually completes its restoration to Brimscombe Port it will be AMAZING!!This is a very arty area of the Cotswolds with numerous arts, music and food festivals taking place throughout the year. The world famous Cheese Roll and Tetbury Woolsack Races, Gatcombe and Badminton Horse trials, Cheltenham Race festival too. The beautiful Westonbirt Arboretum, Berkley Castle,both with special events and open air concerts.

BRIMSCOMBE PORT is below us and was once known worldwide as exporter of top quality wool from the Cotswolds, today it is undergoing the very start of restoration, eventually to make the local canals navigable again and finally to link the River Severn to the River Thames, making England navigable by water from west to east!

We have gardens and castles, shopping centres or for antiques and architectural salvage,but are roughly central in the Cotswolds for Bath, Cheltenham, Oxford, Stow, Burford, Cirencester etc

We are happy to help guide /book events for you to help you get the most out of yourstay at our cottages.

Minchinhampton

The award winning Farmers Market just 2 miles away in Stroud every Saturday is a brilliant start to any holiday, buzzing with vibrance and atmosphere you will absolutely love it.. Excellent base for a Cotswolds wedding with what must be the best scenery in the Cotswolds, amazing walks with something around every corner!

Ideal location for Gatcombe and Badminton eventing,riding ,gliding,ballooning, waterskiing on lakes, clay pigeon shooting, arts and crafts courses, antiques trail etc - we can help to organise all these for you and much more.

Getting around

Stroud train station brings you within 2 miles of the cottage from London Paddington. There is a bus service but also car hire in Stroud itself , which I can help with.Sometimes I can collect guests from the station and return but if not, there are always plenty of taxis. Alternatively walking and cycling lets you see the beautiful countryside at a slower place or even hire electric powered bikes for that extra push up the hills.

Interaction with guest

As we live next door to the cottage , I will be here to welcome you on your arrival and show you a few basics in the cottage . The heating and lighting will be on if after dark so that you can unload and relax straight away. The cottage is yours for your booking and we are discreetly absent during your stay. but on hand should you need anything! We are quite sociable if you want us to be and happy to recommend our favourite outings, over and above my detailed folder and pictures of "all things local" and about the cottage.
