The double bedroom has an ensuite wetroom with a walk in 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 is also a desk where you can set up your laptop, recharge your phone. iPad 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 leaflets. 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. All guests have been impressed with how well equipped the apartment is and previous guests have suggested we highlight this in our information so that you won't need to bring your 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 in summer; 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 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.

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 and serves delicious food.

The Cotswolds region

There is so much to do in the Cotswolds that it makes this such a lovely place to stay! There is a huge range of well known events such as Cheltenham Gold Cup, Gloucester Tall Ships, Fairford Royal International Air Tattoo, the dangerous Cooper's Hill Cheese Rolling, Gloucestershire Steam and Vintage Extravaganza, the Bristol Balloon Fiesta etc. Before Christmas visit the German Market in Cheltenham to get inspiration for lovely pressies, (whilst sampling delicious gluwein and bratwurst) or enjoy the festive atmosphere of the Enchanted Christmas Illuminations of the National Arboretum at Westonbirt. There are also lots of other attractions such as the wonderfully romantic Rococo Gardens at Painswick (fabulous early Spring displays of vast drifts of snowdrops), Slimbridge Wetland Wildlife Reserve, the National Trust Newark Park... the list is endless. Many guests also recommend a visit to the Farmers' Market in Stroud and our two walking distance pubs: The King's Head, King's Stanley (1 mile) and The Bell, Selsley 2/3 mile which has recently re-opened following an extensive refurbishment and is serving very delicious food. There are also plenty of other lovely places to eat, some of which are recommended in our information pack. There are maps of the region you can borrow, however, if you would prefer to do your own research while you are here we also offer a free WiFi internet connection so that you can research your own destinations. Do bear in mind, however, that due to our rural location internet speeds are slightly slower than in urban areas.


From Bobby's Nook you will find many public footpaths, including the Cotswold Way. In fact, we are a stone's throw from the 5 mile Selsley Circuit which offers much interest and variety, and incorporates some of the area's local industrial heritage (details are in our information pack). There are superb views to be enjoyed from Selsley Common, just a short walk up the hill, where commoners still utilise their commoners' grazing rights in summer. If you like, you can also catch a bus to Stroud, visit the highly renowned Farmers' Market and have a coffee/tea in one of the many cafes (we like Mills Cafe in Withey's Yard). Selsley Church is the last of the great Cotswold wool churches and is famous for its beautiful stained glass window by William Morris. As mentioned above, our local pub, the Bell, is now open once again and is serving lovely food.

"Stunning views from a modern but cosy property on the cotswold way"

We spent 3 nights at Bobby's Nook for a short holiday and to attend a wedding nearby. On arrival we were impressed by the stunning views from the large windows on both sides of the poperty. Bobby's Nook if located on the side of a hill on the Cotswold Way, with lots of footpaths nearby and was very peaceful; whilst still being only a very short drive from the nearest supermarket in Stroud and not too far from local attractions such as Westonbirt arboretum and the pretty Cotswold towns of Tetbury and Nailsworth. The accomodation itself had been recently decorated to a high standard with a well-kitted out kitchen, great for self-catering. The owner was very welcoming and left flowers and biscuits for our arrival, as well as local information. Would thoroughly recommend.

Thank you very much for your positive comments; we are really pleased you enjoyed your stay!
