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.

    Excellent property, backed up by friendly and helpful owners, in a beautiful valley - it isn't just Laurie Lee who fell in love with the Slad valley

    Beautiful cottage in quiet and relaxing surroundings, the owners should be very proud of it.

    The whole experience was just perfect, The Cottage was spotless, well equiped, perfect location to unwind and although it is pointed out that the gardens are private this does not matter in the least as the patio area of The Cottage has a beautiful view of the entire area and you feel you are part of it anyway. An added bonus is that the owners are so considerate and charming with nothing too much trouble. It could not be improved in any way so needless to say we hope to return.

    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
