The Cotswolds region

The village of Selsley is situated on the western edge of the Cotswolds in the region of the " Five Valleys" which converge on the town of Stroud.

This is a beautiful area of gentle rolling hillsides, deciduous forests, and pretty Cotswold villages of honey coloured stone. There are a number of interesting manor houses and gardens to explore close by, as well as

the arboretum at Westonbirt; Slimbridge Bird Sanctuary; Regency Cheltenham; Gloucester Docks; Cirencester Abbey; and many famous Cotswold villages such as Bibury and Bourton on the Water.

You will find a guide to local National Trust properties in the cottage, including nearby Woodchester Park, as well as other local guide books and O.S. maps.


Selsley is an interesting village with a working farm, Elizabethan manor house, and Parish Church, renowned for its wonderful stained glass windows created by William Morris, Burne Jones et al.

The village is situated on the edge of a vast common, which affords wonderful views towards Wales and the Severn estuary, as well as the five valleys around Stroud.

There are two fine seventeenth century inns within easy walking distance of the cottage. The Royal Oak at North Woodchester, and our very own "local," "the Bell Inn at Selsley, just up the road( This is currently being refurbished and due to re-open as a pub/fine restaurant and farm shop in October 2013.)

Selsley is situated on the edge of Stroud, renowned for its Saturday farmers' market, where you can buy anything from free range eggs and locally made sausages, to olives and local cider.

Stroud also offers an exciting range of wholefood cafés, while in the surrounding villages such as Nailsworth and Painswick you will find excellent fare in pubs, bistro bars and restaurants. The famous Woolpack pub, frequented by Laurie Lee(Cider with Rosie), is to be found at Slad, set in a beautiful valley on the edge of Stroud.

There are a number of festivals held year round within the region. These include Cheltenham Gold Cup, Cheltenham Jazz and Literary Festivals, Badminton Horse Trials ,Stroud Country Fair, and not least our Selsley summer fete.

"Lovely, will come back"

Cottage was conveniently located, only a short bus ride from Stroud station, walking distance to a Sainsbury's for supplies, and also only a few minutes walk to a beautiful common with amazing views. Cottage was very clean and homely, with everything you might need, including books, DVDs and Scrabble, and we were touched that the owner put out wine and some Christmas cake for us. Will definitely come back.

I'm delighted you had a pleasant stay, and look forward to welcoming you again some time.

"cozy, quirky cottage, although not very dog friendly."

I stayed here for a long weekend in November 2012, we had a really nice time, the log burner in the small kitchen warmed the whole place...although the lounge was on the next floor so you couldnt fully enjoy it. It was cozy, romantic and festive. We took my two dogs along to enjoy the nice countryside and long walks...however, I wouldnt recommend taking dogs to this property, the garden was not secure, there was broken fencing at the bottom which at best, was only knee height, so I had to keep the dogs on leads to go out there... I think there was work being done (although I wasnt made aware of this) as it was mainly mud and rubbish. Whilst the cottage was lovely, the furniture was all white so it meant leaving the dogs on the ground floor (a small kitchen) alone in the evenings, I was careful to roll up the cream rug on the second floor (living room) and put it to the side, but had some money deducted from my deposit for there being dog hair on it!! So a lovely cottage in a nice village with a nearby pub, supermarket and local walks, but probably not the best cottage for taking your dogs, I would recommend it for a romantic couples holiday/break.

Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed our cosy cottage.Well behaved dogs are definitely welcome, even hairy ones. However, our cleaner does a stirling job to make sure the cottage is left in a perfect condition for our next guests, so although we don't charge for dogs, we reserve the right to pay her for extra cleaning when necessary.Fortunately this rarely happens. I think you would love our now fully landscaped garden, although we still expect guests to supervise their dogs, so as not to spoil the flowers and shrubs for others.

"Cosy cottage close to town"

Cosy well equipped cottage. Close to stroud, convenient for shops/public transport but still feels out in the country. Good walks and views across selsley and minchinhampton commons. Nice non-pretentious local pub with food.

So glad that you enjoyed your stay, and that you appreciated our "local" too.

"so nice and so peaceful !"

We have passed wonderful holidays in there : it's so nice, so peaceful and it was a real pleasure to come back there every night. We liked very much the travel guides - so useful for us (french people) - I recommand without hesitation - ideal for a couple who would like to discover the Cotswolds ! Thank you !

We were delighted to have visitors from France, and to know that you appreciated our wonderful area of countryside. Merci bien!
