With the Cotswold Way within easy reach, this is a perfect base from which to enjoy a walking holiday.

Overlooking the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside, this Cotswold stone holiday cottage, one of a pair, offers spectacular views across the Nailsworth Valley and the Severn Vale, one of the most picturesque and unspoilt locations in England. A super choice for keen walkers, there is the Cotswold Way and many beautiful, shorter walks around the Five Valleys, with its tightly packed villages and surrounding woodland. There is direct access onto Minchinhampton Common from the house, and there are three pubs and a village store within walking distance. Rodborough and Selsey Common are also located close by, offering further wonderful walks and views. Briar Cottage is an excellent base from which to explore the Cotswolds, midway between Regency Cheltenham and Georgian Bath, and close to the beautiful town of Nailsworth and the famous, award-winning Stroud Farmers’ Market, which takes place every Saturday morning. Minchinhampton Golf Course is less than 4 miles away. The village of Painswick, known as the ‘Queen of the Cotswolds’, with its individual shops, art gallery and churchyard, is only a short drive away. Visit Woodchester Mansion, Slimbridge Wildfowl Trust, Berkeley Castle, Westonbirt Arboretum, Royal Tetbury, Roman Cirencester, Badminton and Gatcombe Horse Trials. Local supermarkets can be reached within 2 miles. Shop and pub ¼ mile.

    We had a really lovely stay over Christmas with our family, including two from France. The cottage is beautiful with a great view and is really well equipped. Only downside was the water pressure in the top floor shower.

    Great cottage in a great location. Local pubs are fine - just check on the food service before heading there as they might close earlier than expected some days. Otherwise it's in a lovely, quiet village. Took the bikes which the kids found hard work up the hills and grin-inducing coming down. Views to die for from the kitchen and patio areas. Great kitchen for self-catering, and comfortable bedrooms and sitting room. Guess you pay for the location, but for 3 nights would look elsewhere first.

    The downstairs of Briar cottage is fantastic. Lovely views over the valley from the large open plan kitchen & lounge. Comfortable sofas & plenty of seating. The first floor bedroom & en suite are nice. The top floor bedrooms and bathroom could do with a little TLC. OK if its just for younger kids. Parking is fine for one car up to a fair size as can park diagonally across the drive. For two cars, they would both need to be small All access roads to the cottage are narrow and steep, but not of long duration. No real issue in good weather.
