A real ‘away from it all’ location, relax in a timeless valley at this comfortable former farmhouse 4 miles from Stroud.

Set in complete seclusion, this handsome renovated 17th-century farmhouse stands in acres of private grounds with a stream surrounded by woodland and meadows, ideal for children. The property is situated at the head of the Slad Valley with unmade-up track for last 200 yards (where car access can be difficult in bad weather, especially snow); this is one of the valleys described by the poet Laurie Lee in his book ‘Cider with Rosie’. It is within an AONB, a perfect holiday retreat for quiet relaxation or for visitors interested in bird-watching, sketching, painting and walking. Town and sports amenities at Stroud (4 miles). Cheltenham 14 miles. Horse riding 2 miles. Shop 2 miles.

Large, comfortable living room/dining room with inglenook fireplace and rugs on wooden floor. Compact farmhouse-style kitchen. Steep spiral staircase to first floor: Three bedrooms; one double, one twin and one very small single (for +1). Bathroom with toilet.

    Fabulous location. Fabulous building. Un-fabulous road leading down to the cottage. Our group loved the seclusion and the digital isolation (no mobile signal and an internet connection that doesn't function beyond emails (the kids won't be browsing the internet). We had amazing weather but I imagine with poor weather you might go stir crazy indoors once you have exhausted the extensive games and book collection. I went with my friends but I will return with my family. My one true criticism is the approach to the cottage is extremely difficult. A three point turn is required to get around it and if you have a long, wide or low car you will be in a world of trouble. We had a 4x4 pickup truck so we were fine.

    An amazing place to stay, remote and wonderful to go to sleep and wake up to the sounds of nature!
