Within the grounds of Grade II listed Upper Vatch Mill, The Cottage offers perfect accommodation for 2 guests, close to Stroud.

This detached, period Cotswold stone holiday cottage enjoys a peaceful and picturesque location within the grounds of the owners’ Grade II listed Upper Vatch Mill. The tranquil sound of the Slad brook and weir are within earshot. The Cotswold village of Slad, immortalised by the author Laurie Lee, is scattered along the slope of this narrow valley, captured in the filming of Lee’s ‘Cider with Rosie’ (1998). An ideal location for walkers, there are many footpaths, while the Cotswold Way is within a few minutes’ drive. Bohemian Stroud is one and a half miles away, and has an array of independent shops. The surrounding Golden Valleys are an attractive location from which to explore the western Cotswolds. Cheltenham, Bath and Cirencester are within easy reach. Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile.

    It was a pleasure to stay in the cottage which has everything you need for your stay . It is set in peaceful surroundings and is very well presented.The views of the owners garden from the cottage windows are a delight and to see the deer feeding on the lawn and watch the squirrels antics are a bonus.The owners Peter and Stephanie are friendly and helpful and I would like to say thank you for the wine and inviting us into your home on our last night it was very nice of you.The weather wasn't very good during our stay however there are lots of places to visit in easy travelling distance whatever the weather. There was a small problem with the Internet during our stay but this was soon rectified and we were always kept informed on the progress by the owners. We would defiantly stay in the cottage if we were visiting the area again and would certainly recommend it to others
