Bobby's Nook is a ground floor apartment situated in the village of Selsley, close to Stroud. Purposely converted to holiday accommodation, Bobby's Nook is a cosy and comfortable home from home for just the two of you (with no height restricted areas or sloping ceilings). There is a level lawn area to the front, secluded garden (table, chairs, cushions, bench, loungers and barbecue also available) to the rear and safe onsite parking. The double bedroom has an ensuite with a walk in "rainfall" shower our guests say "you won't want to get out of"! The separate, modern kitchen is a good size, is very well equipped and has a rural view across fields, (the Arts and Crafts period Selsley church can be seen in winter). There are also extra table and chairs in the kitchen, in addition to those in the dining area - perfect for breakfast or a quick snack. The lounge area has a very comfortable sofa (from which to enjoy a fantastic view to the River Severn and Forest of Dean), Smart TV with Netflix, iPlayer etc and inbuilt DVD player, Radio/CD player and books, maps and games to borrow. There is also a desk with a charging station, where you can set up your laptop, recharge your phones, tablets etc. We provide a comprehensive Information Pack which is regularly reviewed and updated, detailing local amenities, suggested places to visit or eat, along with a large collection of tourist leaflets, which we will send to you as a pdf before arrival. A WiFi internet connection is also provided free of charge. We take pride in cleanliness and attention to detail. Towels, and kitchen and bedroom linen are provided. Previous guests have been impressed with how well equipped and provisioned the apartment is and have suggested we highlight this in our information so that you won't need to bring your own hairdryer or kitchen utensils! Also, plenty of storage space is provided to stow your belongings and hang your clothes. The surrounding countryside is peaceful with amazing views especially to the west (distant River Severn, Forest of Dean) giving awesome sunsets; relax... throw open the window blinds, and enjoy! Bobby's Nook is adjacent to the Cotswold Way and the attractive Selsley Circuit (5 miles of great variety and interest). Many beautiful, typically Cotswold, villages and bohemian Stroud, with its cafe culture and highly acclaimed Saturday farmers' market, much loved by many of our guests, are close by. There are also lots of events in the area including Cheltenham Gold Cup, Fairford Air Tattoo, Gloucestershire Steam Extravaganza, Bristol Balloon Fiesta and Gloucester Tall Ships. Good access to M5; visit Bath, Bristol, Cardiff, Gloucester, Cheltenham, Oxford, Stratford, Stonehenge, Blenheim Palace. If you are looking for a Cotswolds break with your loved one, whether energetically walking the Cotswold Way, cycle touring or simply relaxing, savour the delights of the Cotswolds' Stroud Valleys area with Bobby's Nook as your base. There are many ways to spend your days and something for everyone; perhaps a visit to the romantic Rococo Gardens in Painswick, the National Arboretum in Westonbirt., the National Trust Newark Park or Slimbridge Wetlands Wildlife Reserve. Ordnance Survey maps of the area are available to borrow. In summer, while away a relaxing evening with a barbeque in the garden whilst watching a beautiful sunset in the distance over the Forest of Dean. There are also many local pubs and restaurants to sample; our information pack contains some suggestions but if you wish to cook at 'home' the nearest supermarkets are just 1 mile away. We are happy to say that we have two pubs within walking distance: The Kings Head, Kings Stanley, is approximately 1 mile and Google Maps says this takes 18 minutes to walk, and our local pub, The Bell, Selsley which featured on BBC2's Restaurant Man after an extensive refurbishment a few years ago and serves delicious food and local beers. We are always happy to answer any questions you may have regarding Bobby's Nook and the area so please feel free to send us an enquiry. Last Minute 2 Night Breaks are available by special arrangement - please send a general enquiry. PLEASE NOTE: FOR THE COMFORT OF ALL OUR GUESTS, THIS PROPERTY IS STRICTLY NON-SMOKING, INCLUDING THE OUTSIDE AREAS.

Very Good

“One not to be missed”

Reviewed 31 Jan 2021

Spent 2 weeks at Bobby's Nook because we were unable to return to our permanent home re water damage. The cottage is fantastically equipped and fully stocked with items such as dishwasher tablets and toilet rolls. Gill and Mike have thought of everything you need.It is warm and has full central heating which we controlled. The cottage is attached to the main house but Gill and Mike are rarely seen. Their kindness is incredible. We were shielding and they made fresh bread, provided milk and eggs when we ran out. We were so impressed.The surrounding area is beautiful with lovely walks.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for this lovely review Rachel; we are very pleased to hear you both enjoyed your stay and it was great that the weather was good enough for you to enjoy a barbecue in the garden! Bobby's Nook is in a super location with wonderful views over the Severn estuary to the west, as you mention, and is a great, central base for the Cotswolds. It is good for long and short stays being a perfect size for two adults and has a very well equipped kitchen if you want to cook at home, however, there is a pub serving delicious food close by that all our guests (and ourselves!) love.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for this lovely review! We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay, it was great to have met you. We hope to welcome you back before long. Note for future guests: We do try to think of everything to make your stay a great experience but if you need anything extra please do ask. I would also like to add that Bobby's Nook is very close to major road (including the M5) and rail networks (direct trains to London Paddington - 1hr 31 mins) so it is very easy to get around. There is also a good hourly (a little less often on Sundays) bus service with bus stops about 100 yards down the road and it's a great place to stay for walking various sections of the Cotswold Way.
